Announce UK Headline Tour September & October 2016 New Single “We’ll Stop At Nothing” Out On: 29th July 2016
The brand new Toseland album, “Cradle The Rage”, was released worldwide in March 2016 and following its success, the band are setting out on a 14 date tour running through September and October of this year.
Toseland will release the new single “We’ll Stop At Nothing” On July 29th.
“Cradle The Rage” is the follow up to the critically and commercially successful album “Renegade”. Production duties again come from Toby Jepson (The Answer, Virgin Marys, Little Angels), with mixing duties now taken on by the legendary Mike Fraser (AC/DC, Bryan Adams, Motley Crue).
Toseland’s debut album “Renegade” was released in March 2013. It has sold 13,000 copies in the UK to date, and the band have headlined 3 sell out tours and played to thousands of people on numerous festivals including Car Fest, Ramblin Man, Isle Of Wight and Hard Rock Hell. The success of Renegade led to the band inking a licensing deal with German label Metalville in 2015, and that deal saw the new album Cradle The Rage released globally in March.

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!
