Screaming Eagles – New Album ‘Stand Up and be Counted’ to be released 13th July 2015

Screaming Eagles release new album ‘Stand Up and be Counted’ world-wide via Off Yer Rocka Recordings

‘From the Flames’ was a classic , ‘Stand Up and be Counted’ is a “Killer” and is set to take the Screaming Eagles to the next level.The album will be released Digitally and Physically worldwide on 13th July

The album contains ten tracks of blistering rock n roll, recorded in the bands home country, Northern Ireland during March/April 2015.

Lead singer Chris Fry commented “I’m extremely excited as when we got the final mixes through it sounded immense. I think it shows a progression, musically, with a mixture of what we do best – the Rock N’Roll anthemic sing along chorus’ and driving riffs, mixed with some darker rib-shaking belters. What crossed my mind was that most other bands always seem to say their newest release is better than the last and of course why wouldn’t they, but this one actually is! We cannot wait to play this album live to the masses, exciting times ahead so watch this space!!”

To Kickstart the next chapter of the Screaming Eagles, the band will be releasing a multi track EP, titled “Save Me” with bonus material including a cover of Australian rock classic “Good Times” featuring guest vocals from Pontus Snibb of Bonafide as well as some live material recorded at Hard Rock Hell, 2 years ago. The 7 track “Save Me” EP will be released digitally worldwide on 24th June. Save me will be backed up with a new video recently shot in their home county.


The Northern Ireland quartet recently achieved international recognition from Sony Music Pictures in Los Angeles, who after signing a licensing agreement with the band, featured their first single release “Rock N’ Roll Soul” on the Hit US TV Show – Justified, Season 6 Episode 1, starring Timothy Olyphant, airing to an audience of more than 4 million viewers in the US.

The band are signed to Worldwide-Distributing label ‘Off Your Rocka Records’, home of the Quireboys and Bonafide, OYR are ecstatic with the new release. OYR CEO Jonni Davis commented, we’ve watched our Irish Eagles with extreme interest since they won one of our national competitions and have seen their career accelerate in the UK, US, Germany and Australia 100 fold after the Justified release. Stand up and be Counted is exactly what we challenged them with for the next step and to say they have over delivered is an under statement.

About Louise Swift

I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot! My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!' The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;) Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
