Since I mentioned Devilish Presley, I should tell you that the band has now finished mixing their fifth album at London’s Berry St. studio with producer Kevin Poree (Memphisto & Disgraceland).
Working up a set of fast and furious dark-flavoured gothic-punk songs with a more personal style of lyrics has now developed, and covers sex, drugs, humour, alienation and, of course, horror.
Devilish Presley was formed as a two-piece band by Jacqui Vixen and Johnny Navarro in 2003 and they were soon adopted by the UK goth scene with the albums Rust Garden (2003) and Disgraceland (2004) – but they very quickly widened their appeal.
Johnny was chosen as back-up guitar player by Meteors frontman P.Paul Fenech and toured Europe with him in (2008).
It was this unique abillity to cross over between genres that informed the critically acclaimed albums Memphisto (2006) and Flesh Ride (2008) and saw them become the support act on nineteen dates with The Damned in 2008.
The new album called “The Dark Triad” will be released on May 9th 2011.

The March Violets are getting ready to release an EP called ‘Love Will Kill You‘ just before the tour starts and the debut album ‘Made Glorious‘ will be released by the end of the summer/early autumn.
Simon Hinkler will guest at the band’s gig in Leeds, with the possibility of a third band being added.

After six album releases between 1993 and 1997, Dave & Mark reformed Vendemmian in 2008 and now in 2011 have a brand new album titled ‘One In A Million‘.
Since the comeback they have blazed a trail across Europe and established themselves as one of the main acts in their genre.
