  MR. BIG CHANGE RELEASE DATE FOR NEW ALBUM "...THE STORIES WE COULD TELL"
27 August 2014





The release for Mr. Big's highly anticipated new album, '...The Stories We Could Tell', has been moved from September 22nd to September 29th in the UK, and from September 23rd to September 30th in North America via Frontiers Music Srl.

It's an album that is definitely worth waiting for - you can read Chris Dale's 4 beer review for MetalTalk by clicking here

"This new album rocks," says Paul Gilbert. "I love playing guitar, singing, and writing with Eric, Billy, and Pat. And after 25 years, I'm proud that we can make an album that is melodic, powerful, interesting, groovy, and emotional."

"We wrote songs individually and collectively on this new record," says Eric Martin. "To me this is the album that we've threatened to make decades ago. A classic, groovin', blues-rock record with the spirit and spark of our rock and soul idols from the 70's.

"Hells to the yeah it's a Mr. Big album complete with all the trimmings. I think whether you've been with us from the beginning or just starting, you're going to dig where we are coming from and where we've been."

The original line-up comprised of Eric Martin (vocals), Paul Gilbert (guitar), Billy Sheehan (bass) and Pat Torpey ( drums), are back with some of their most powerful material to date.

The new album is the follow-up to the 2011 release 'What If', that marked the band's return to their signature hard rock sound. The new album is available for pre-order via Amazon UK.

Mr. Big kick off their European tour on Friday October 17th at London's Koko. Visit the www.mrbigsite.com to view all their 2014 tour dates.

The band recently announced that drummer Pat Torpey has been diagnosed with Parkinson's disease. The diagnosis has left him unable to perform his normal drumming duties on the band's upcoming World Tour.

He did complete all of the drumming on the upcoming album, but unfortunately touring will be too difficult for him at the present time.

Mr. Big intends to announce a drummer in the near future who will handle most of Mr. Big's drumming duties on the Autumn 2014 tour and expects Torpey to jump on the drums on suitable live songs as well as participating in the group's acoustic set.

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 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.
