Having just finished a successful UK tour with The Temperance Movement, London's hotly-tipped garage rock'n'rollers The Graveltones are now set to embark on a 14-date arena tour of Europe as main support to German platinum-selling band The Bosshoss commencing on Oct 17, and finishing with a London show as support to supergroup The Dead Daisies at The Underworld on Nov 20.

The tour will see the band play to crowds of up to 10 000 a night in Luxemburg, Switzerland, Germany and Austria in support of their highly anticipated debut album 'Don't Wait Down', due for release on Oct 21 worldwide.

The album features 10 tracks recorded at Monnow Valley and Miloco Studios and produced by The Graveltones along with the renowned producer Charlie Francis (REM, The Noisettes, Future Of The Left).

The release of 'Don't Wait Down' comes at the end of what has already been a hugely successful year for The Graveltones, having smashed their Pledge Music album campaign in unbelievable time, completed UK tours with American rockers Rival Sons and The Temperance Movement, performed at Download Festival and landed sync deals with the Irish Lottery and cosmetic giants Rimmel for their national TV advertising campaign against the face of Kate Moss.

The band's recent nomination for this year's Classic Rock Awards in the Best New Band 2013 category is the latest in a long line of achievements that the remarkable pair have already conquered before the world has even heard their full debut album, and sets them firmly amongst some of this year's most incendiary buzz bands including The Temperance Movement, Deap Vally, Walking Papers and Hey! Hello to name a few.

'Don't Wait Down' is set for worldwide release on October 21 via Lagoon Dog Records distributed by RSK Entertainment.

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.
