Glasgow based rockers Stoneface have announced a special one-off live date at the city's famous Cathouse nightclub on Saturday 22nd April, which will feature very special guests Rusted Hero and The Raging Sickness.

The band explained: "Writing and pre-production of the Stoneface album #2 is progressing really well, but we interrupt it to bring you this special event. We have two very special guest bands coming up from 'darn sarf' to play with us at this show. They're both fantastic bands and you'd be crazy to miss this event."

MetalTalk can exclusively reveal that Newcastle-Upon-Tyne trio Rusted Hero and The Raging Sickness, who also hail from Newcastle, will be supporting Stoneface on this very special one-off gig. Rusted Hero are slowly building a reputation for solid live performances with their mixture of modern rock, blues, and grunge combined with unique lyrical backgrounds which offer an exciting sound.

The Raging Sickness on the other hand, have performed a number of times at London's O2 where they shared stages with Funeral For A Friend, Kids In Glass Houses and The Hoosiers.


Stoneface themselves were first formed in late 2014 and after a couple of small gigs, they release their full length self-titled debut album in February 2015. Support slots with Skiltron and The Toi brought them to the attention of local promoters Shock City productions who quickly signed them up, enabling the band to support former Sensational Alex Harvey Band/Michael Schenker Group bass guru Chris Glen and up and coming Scottish star, Kieran Robertson.

Tickets are on sale now from the usual vendors and those wanting to go are advised to book early to avoid disappointment.

Stoneface are:
Stewart Storrie – Vocals
Grant Walsh – Guitar
Richard Walsh – Bass Guitar
Alistair McMenemy – Drums

Monsters Of Rock In Full Flight is strictly limited to 300 worldwide and is available from 30th November but those ordering before 31st October will have their name published within a dedicated page in the book.

It's a deluxe 128 page hardback book in a metal flight case with a narrative by Jerry Bloom.

When promoter Paul Loasby put on the first Monsters Of Rock Festival in 1980 he could probably never have imagined it would become an annual event that would endure for so many years.

Featuring bands from the UK, Germany, Canada and USA, Loasby chose to stage the event at the Donington race circuit in the middle of England and it would prove to be a defining moment for many of the bands on the bill.

Not least for headliners Rainbow as it was the their last ever show to feature drum legend Cozy Powell. As it would happen it turned out to be the last for vocalist Graham Bonnet as well. For many of the other bands on the bill such as Scorpions, Judas Priest and Saxon, they were all on the ascendancy and would soon go on to even greater success.

Now in celebration of this first ever Monsters Of Rock Festival comes this hardback book full of glorious photos of the bands that took to the stage for that inaugural event including back stage shots. Most of these shots have not been published before which add to the uniqueness of this deluxe 128-page book which is packaged in its own flight case.

Also included are stories surrounding the event with tales and recollections from those who were there, including artists and fans alike. Each book will be signed by the author. The 300 will sell fast and definitely go on to become collector's items so order yours now right here to avoid disappointment.
