Much has been going on @DA HQ over the last few months . . . Sales of the Desolation Angels 30th Anniversary Debut Album are on going, and selling well. We would like to take this opportunity (public and wholesalers) to thank all those that have made a purchase thus far, a very big thumbs up to you all! Cheers!
Our next business: Is to get our new album out! (Which for the moment has a working title of 'KING') We have had some deal/offers come to us for the production, and management of the album, but as yet, nothing seems to suite. So we are still open to offers, and are currently in negations with a couple of record labels. However, it does seem to take ages in the toing and froing of information between all the parties involved. But still . . . needless to say though, our new album will, at some point be available this year. Keep checking back here, or check our Facebook page for updates.
Radio: We have secured and have 24-7 rotational airplay on US based 365 Radio, Boston Rock Radio, and UK based independent rock radio stations too. They are playing two tracks from our KING album: Another Turn Of The Screw, and Find Your Life. Also we are waiting to hear back from the BBC as to whether they will air the same two tracks? As we have already passed their first level of selection.
Finally, GIGS, or rather the lack of them! Only this one so far this year, December Sunday 3rd 2017 Hard Rock Hell (NWOBHM) Xmas Rocka 2 at the O2 Academy Sheffield. This is because of recording commitments last year, we have lost out on this years gigs and festivals. We are still scouting, and are on the lookout for more gigs this year. Once again, keep checking back here, or check our Facebook page for updates.
And finally, finally. The best part of being in a band, is the writing side of things. The creation of the new ideas, and it’s here that we come together. After all the actual stress of running an dependent band, and with all the ups and downs from doing just that day in and day out, we finally get space and time to do just that - WRITE! . . . The band is currently writing the next batch of future DA classics, with the intent of recording later in the year. We know it makes sense, and we know you do too, and it is this combination that keeps us going!
Rock on all, keep it HEAVY METAL!
More info coming very soon!
