‘A to Z’ Round 1 Now Announced – Single Sells At Shows

February 9th, 2015

The Angels - New Commemorative Single - 2015The Angels are pleased to announce that their new commemorative single will be available at live shows on 7″ vinyl as well as CD when Round 1 of the group’s new ‘A to Z’ Tour gets underway in May 2015.

Recorded in the traditional manner on an analogue tape this release brings back the sound that led the band to fame as their career burst out of the 1970’s onto the national stage.

The tour will see a special set of 26 songs to cater for every letter of the alphabet as the band provide a full evening of rock at each and every venue along the way.

Taking care of the start of the alphabet is the commemorative re-recording of Am I Ever Gonna’ See Your Face Again with the band’s front man Dave Gleeson providing the motivation to record some ZZ Top music as a special B-Side to complete the alphabet. Built on traditional southern boogie rhythms this unique version of La Grange features John Brewster pushing out a series of manic, ramped up solos using his trademark method of playing R’n’B blues harp.

The last 12 months have been huge for The Angels, first with the release of their studio album of all new material TALK THE TALK, and then their sell-out 40th Anniversary Tour, which took them to all corners of Australia. Now 2015 will see the boys embark on Round 1 of their ‘A to Z’ Tour in May, then head overseas in June to London & Sweden followed when they return back home by Round 2 of the ‘A to Z’ Tour from July to September.

Tickets for Round 1 of the ‘A to Z’ Tour are now on sale for the following venues.

The Angels Requested For Sweden Rock Festival – June 2015

October 14th, 2014

The Angels Set To Play Giant Rock Festival In Sweden - 6th June - 2015Recently announced, The Angels have been requested to play at the enormous Sweden Rock Festival during the European summer on Sat 6th June 2015.

Amongst the dozens of bands playing at this multi-day event are Toto, Judas Priest and, a band who appeared at the Clipsal 500 V8 car race with The Angels last year, Motley Crue.

On New Year ‘s Eve last year one of Australia’s very own superstars Jon English spent an evening with festival publicist Johannes Lindström and introduced him to the power of The Angels. Once he heard their music he was hooked, reportedly listening to the albums non-stop during a drive from the Gold Coast to Melbourne and driving his wife crazy in the process! Recognising the international appeal of the band, he returned to Sweden on a mission, which soon led to a request from the festival promoter for The Angels to appear next year.

If you’re one of the band’s many European fans,  or you want to take a trip overseas for this very special event then Click Here to visit the Gig Page for more info on Sweden Rock!
