Girlschool confirmed for HRH 8

GirlschoolWell, they’ve had to put the stops on the song writing and are now getting ready to drop into HRH for another jaw breaking performance.

NWOBHM Vets, Girlschool are back, and it couldn’t be better timing as they are just about to go back into the studio, to lay down their next album. Girlschool have wooed the HRH loyal before but after a 3 year gap and by public demand they’re back for this one off special performance.

Jonni Davis founder HRH commented, “it was a long time ago when I first met the girls while touring with Motorhead and don’t think I’ve ever heard a female band play at that level of sound. TBH, I’ve not heard it at that level since, hence why I’m going to put them on an even bigger stage and rig this time and see what the sound like at 113…for that, I can’t wait.”

Also for anyone that missed the earlier announcement Queensryche & Lizzy Borden also confirmed for HRH 8

Following the official cancellation of W.A.S.P., HRH are pleased to announce that Queensryche will be stepping up to the top slot and will be jetting in for a UK exclusive at HRH 8 this November. Queensrÿche, featuring Todd La Torre have recently been enjoying tremendous success performing to hundreds of thousands of fans worldwide and now can’t wait to perform their latest show in front of the HRH loyal.

Queensrÿche first burst onto the music scene in 1982 with the release of their self-titled 4 song EP Queensrÿche. They very quickly gained international recognition and performed to sold out audiences around the world. With the follow up first full length album “The Warning” in 1984, and the ground breaking 1986 release of “Rage For Order”, Queensrÿche continued to prove their worldwide dominance as one of the most respected and creative bands of the 80’s. In 1988 the band turned out yet another monumental album “Operation:Mindcrime”, which would go on to become one of the TOP 10 best selling concepts records of all time, Queensrÿche have sold over 30 million albums worldwide.

It was a shame to see Lizzy Borden complete their 30 years of Metal World Tour without any UK shows, however after a quick chat we are now pleased to announce that Lizzy Borden will also fly in for a UK exclusive this November @ HRH 8.

HRH 8 has been sold out since January and takes place in just over 40 days’ time. We’ve still got a few bits to add to what I’m sure is going to be another cracking weekend.
