Matthews said that fans can expect the 'Party Metal' record to be released early 2004 Brides of Destruction (featuring Nikki Sixx, Tracii Guns, Scot Coogan and London LeGrand) are finding it extremely difficult finding a deal outside of Japan. Tracii made the following comment on the group's website "The album will be delivered in Japan only by September 17th. There are only plans to promote the album in Japan and there are no plans to tour. Apparently, we were asking for way too much money for the American and European license and it turned a lot of people off. That's when everything came to a screeching halt. So unless a magical deal comes from out of a monkey's ass, or a label, this record will never see the light of day outside of Japan" Toilet Boys have called it a day Mike Pierce of ES3 (Erotic Suicide) has been involved in a car accident Freewheeler are playing Live at the Archway Tavern, London, N19, UK on Thursday 28 August, on stage at 9:15pm B*Movie Heroes would like to welcome Russell Carling to the band The Blessings will be playing The Cat Club, LA on Thursday 21 August, on stage at 11pm Motochrist record release party - 22 August, with special guests, Extreme Elvis, Voodoo Dollies, Blvd Strays and At Attack @ The Garage, 4519 Santa Monica Blvd, Hollywood Hanoi Rocks will be releasing a live album in Japan entitled 'One Night Stand in Helsinki' on the 21 September 2003 Poison have released two new CDs, one being another greatest hits with a few additional songs and the other is called 'Ballads and Blues', another greatest hits but only consisting of their ballads and blues songs Donnie Vie has released a solo album All four members of the Trash Brats have started up new projects, check out the following website for more details B*Movie Heroes UK Tour Dates: - August 23, UP4IT 2K3 Festival, Colne; August 28, Montells, Tewkesbury; August 29, Kasbah, Scarborough; August 30, The Chillingham, Newcastle; September 11, Masque, Liverpool; September 12, Darkplace, Lancaster; September 14, Glo, South Shields; October 8, Underworld TBC, Edinburgh; October 9, Starka, Motherwell; October 10, Venue TBC, Glasgow; October 11, Twa Tams TBC, Perth; October 14, Alcatraz @ The Albert, Portsmouth; October 23, University TBC, Portsmouth; October 24, Squadron, Isle of Wight; October 25, Railway, Winchester; October 30, Royal Park Cellars, Leeds; November 1, Kasbah TBC, Scarborough; November 3, University TBC, Hull; November 13, University, Herriot Watt; November 14, Monroes, Workington; November 17, University, Bath Spa; November 19, Fire Station, Bournemouth; December 11, University, Paisley; December 12, Starka, Motherwell; December 13, Lava, Aberdeen; December 16, Joseph Wells TBC, Leeds; December 20, Marrs Bar TBC, Worcester Regarding the two previously stated Robin Black gigs in Canada… there is a contest where you can win free admission, a free CD single, and a meet and greet with the band.
