Hot off their UK tour with Black Veil Brides and D.R.U.G.S, Finnish rockers Reckless Love have just announced that they will return to the UK in October for a headline tour which includes a residency slot at London's Barfly.

The band will perform every Thursday in October at London's prestigious Barfly venue in Camden, harking back to the years when legendary acts such as Guns N' Roses and Hanoi Rocks would regularly take over London's Marquee Club.

Touring the rest of the UK while basing themselves in London, the self-styled Merry Metallers will put on a special weekly show in Camden Town, with each set a unique celebration in its own right.

"We are very exited about this!!" says lead singer Olli Herman. "Our reception in the UK has always been over the top, but because of the busy situation in Finland we've felt that the party's been cut a wee bit short every time we've been over. So, we decided to stay a little longer this time and treat our fans with a chance to catch us live all over the UK for four weeks in a row!!

"Every Thursday we also get a chance to do special shows at Camden's own Barfly, which was the very first place we ever played in the UK and therefore it'll always be a special venue for Reckless Love. It's gonna be one hell of an October and we can't wait to kick it off already. Stay Reckless."

Here's a fabulous Aerosmith pictorial document as seen through the lens of famed British photographer Tony Mottram. Tony photographed the band over many years for various magazines and now has a monthly column here on MetalTalk.

As was often the case, only one photo ever got published and in the fast moving world of weekly magazines sometimes entire sessions would be done and left undeveloped.

Tony started shooting Aerosmith from towards the end of the period with Jimmy Crespo and Rick Dufay and onwards through the return of original members Joe Perry and Brad Whitford that resulted in the albums 'Done With Mirrors', 'Permanent Vacation' and 'Pump'.


As well as shooting the band several times in England, this collection includes images from a session at the band's rehearsal room in Boston. Littered throughout is a mixture of live and off stage photos including a selection of photos taken at London's famous Marquee club when they were joined on stage by Jimmy Page.

This limited edition hardback book, presented in a flight case and printed on silk paper, is an opportunity to own a unique selection of photos, most of which have never seen the light of day before.

This unique item is presented in an aluminium flight case and will be published in late November. Earlybird subscribers who order by 31st October will have their name printed within a dedicated page in the book.
