The Harvest Continues
Oct 18, 2013 / 7:00 pm
The harvest continues…this year’s Rock Harvest continues throughout this month and in to November: Next week, Best Buy will have the exclusive “Def Leppard” DVD/CD package for Canada! It will be on shelves beginning October 18th!! From Europe, the much anticipated release of Impera’s Pieces Of Eden will also see the light of day on October 18th! Canada’s own “Von Groove” are stirring; with rumours of a new album in the works…in the meantime a re-issue of their debut is slated for this month. Look for the following to hit your local music shops: Europe: “Live At Sweden Rock”,
Ayreon with “The Theory Of Everything”, The Flower Kings with “Desolation Rose”. As the days get shorter, the music gets louder…look for these fine Talents in November: Dream Theatre: “Live At Luna Park”…a DVD/Bluray combo, and
from the UK—Kick with “Memoirs”, Fate releases “If Not For the Devil” and “Dark Wings Of Steel” from Rhapsody Of Fire. Of course, many more Artists are releasing—here are a couple more that stand-out…Nightwish with “Showtime/Storytime”, and this gem: Boston ”Life, Love & Hope”!!
A while back, I reviewed what was then, the latest effort from the hard working group The Quireboys. The group have just released a brand new album, with a brand new label! “A Beautiful Curse” will take this group in to 2014 in fine form.
This album is the first full studio album of brand new material since “Homewreckers & Heartbreakers”…but we still get that fresh bluesy honky tonk sound that these dyed in the wool English rockers have been putting out for years. The Quireboys are musical storytellers, and they have a lot of stories to tell! From “A Beautiful Curse”, enjoy these two videos…from the legendary Quireboys!
