Paul Raymond and Reuben Archer



Following a successful solo album launch show at London's Borderline venue earlier this month and his UK and European tour dates with UFO, Paul Raymond is pleased to announce the addition of two new live dates to the Paul Raymond Project 2013 UK tour schedule:

April 20 – Monroes Bar @ Carnegie Arts Centre, Workington
April 21 – The Railway Venue, Bolton

The dates celebrate the release of the new Paul Raymond Project album 'Terms & Conditions Apply' which was released January 28 through Hear No Evil/Cherry Red Records to critical claim from rock press worldwide. It's the sixth solo release by Paul and features a guest appearance from Michael Schenker (MSG, UFO, Scorpions) on a cover of 'Reach Out (I'll Be There)' and by Reuben Archer (Stampede, Wild Horses, Lionheart) on 'Love Is Blind'.

Along with Paul and PRP bassist Mark Coles, the live lineup features Stampede vocalist Reuben Archer and guitarist Rob Wolverson along with Neil Ablard of The Dreaming Tree on drum duties. The set includes songs from the new album as well as some of the best-loved UFO classics and some seldom-heard fan favourites such as 'Just Another Suicide' and 'Take It Or Leave It'.

More regional shows TBA very soon.

Paul Raymond is primarily best known for his work in UFO, having joined the band's ranks in 1976. Beginning with 'Lights Out' in 1977, to date Paul has appeared on 11 UFO albums, including the incendiary double live 'Strangers In The Night'. In a varied career, he's also been a key member in a number of acts, including 70s legends Savoy Brown, Chicken Shack, Michael Schenker Group and Waysted.

The Paul Raymond Project (PRP) was first formed in 1989 in Japan featuring original lineup of Frank Di Mino (formerly of Angel) on lead vocals and Masoyoshi Yamashitu (Loudness) on bass. Paul spent 1990 writing new material, inspired by the resurgence of straight-ahead blues/rock led by bands such as the Black Crowes and the Quireboys, until, joined by guitarist Andy Simmons, the third incarnation of the project released 'Man On A Mission' through Zoom Club records.

It was to be nine years before Paul and Andy joined forces again and recorded 'Virtual Insanity' as UFO had once again intervened. In 2010, together with bass player Mark Coles and drummer Tony Steel, they began working on 'Terms & Conditions Apply'.




WACKEN WINTER NIGHTS IS HEAVY METAL WONDERLAND

wacken

Wacken Winter Nights 2018 takes place between February 23rd and 25th 2018 and the great news is that you can now experience a full-on, top class German Metal Festival easily and affordably.

It only takes an hour to fly to Hamburg from London and we've had longer journeys than that within the capital and they were certainly more expensive than the £33 air ticket that just appeared in our 'flights to Wacken Winter Nights' search.

wacken

Wacken Winter Nights is organised by the same team who are responsible for the world's greatest Metal festival, Wacken-Open-Air and the 2018 bill includes Skyclad, Orphaned Land, Elvenking, Finntroll, Grave Digger, Aeverium, Comes Vagantes, Coppelius, Corvus Corax, Die Pressgëng, Elvellon, Heimataerde, Hell-O-Matic, Ignis Fatuu, Ingrimm, Irdorath, Johnny Deathshadow, Krayenzeit, Letzte Instanz, Mr Hurley und die Pulveraffen, Pampatut, Pat Razket, Schandmaul, Sündenrausch, The Aberlour's, The Moon And The Nightspirit, Torfrock, Visions Of Atlantis, Vroudenspil, Wind Rose and more.



Besides this rich billing of superb Metal bands, there is so much more to see in the festival area including the medieval market and also the walking acts and jugglers you will meet at the theme worlds, including Robert Blake, three-time World Cup winner of street magic.

Wacken Winter Nights is something not to be missed and you can check out the amazing ticket and accommodation prices right here.

We just priced up the whole four day trip with hotels, flights, shuttles and festival tickets for less than £300 and we don't think you will get a better value festival than that, anywhere.

MetalTalk recently sat down with Wacken founder and owner Thomas Jensen and that interview will be online next week and it's a fascinating insight into how Wacken originated from nothing to become the world's premiere Heavy Metal event.
