It Bites had an immensely successful 2012, a year that included the release of their critically acclaimed album "Map Of The Past", two brilliantly received UK tours and a fantastic sold-out London show at the Scala as well as Radio 2 play from the likes of Dermot O'Leary and Alex Lester.
Never ones to rest on their laurels though, the band have just revealed they will be main support to FM on their upcoming UK tour in March, the dates of which you can find below.
Founding member Bob Dalton had this to say about the tour:
Caravan, the quintessential precursors to the British Prog Rock movement, have announced a very special UK Tour that kicks off on January 8th 2013 at London’s prestigious Queen Elizabeth Hall, at the Southbank Centre.
The UK tour will see Caravan celebrating the 40th Anniversary of what many critics regard to be the quintessential prog album of all time; 1973’s “For Girls Who Grow Plump In The Night”. Tickets for the tour go on sale Monday June 18th from the 24 hour box office - 0844 478 0898, www.eventim.co.uk.
Paul Raymond, songwriter, keyboardist and rhythm guitarist of legendary cult hard rock outfit UFO has inked a deal with Cherry Red Records' new hard rock imprint label Hear No Evil for his new solo album with The Paul Raymond Project.
The new album, entitled "Terms & Conditions Apply" is set for a worldwide release on January 28, 2013. It will mark the sixth release by the group and features a guest appearance from Michael Schenker (MSG, UFO, Scorpions) on a cover of "Reach Out (I’ll Be There)" and by Reuben Archer (Stampede, Wild Horses, Lionheart, Lautrec) on "Love Is Blind".
UK metal legends HELL are putting on one hell of a show, to celebrate the start of the recording of album two.
This special performance coined as ‘The Greatest Show On Earth’, will be filled with “fire, brimstone and pyrotechnical madness”, with support coming from the epic ‘Winterfylleth’ and ‘A Thousand Enemies’. The show will also be filmed live and mixed in 5.1 for a special DVD release, later in 2013. Next year, on February 23rd, the UK will see HELL stage their full 'Church Of Hell' at Derby Assembly Rooms, Darwin Suite.
Lancashire rockers Exit State announce a 7-date UK tour for December, marking the completion of another exciting year for the band. 2012 has seen them make many new fans as special guests on tour with legendary ex-UFO & Scorpions guitarist Michael Schenker, including a stunning performance at Shepherd's Bush Empire.
More recently, the band opened for Reckless Love at Manchester's Club Academy & returned for a special Halloween show in Belgium where the increasingly warm relationship with European fans was clearly cemented.
