The outstanding Kent-based band StoneWire are coming back to London with a headline show at the Black Heart in Camden on Friday 14th July. The band have been making huge waves with their thrilling take on Southern-blues-hard-rock topped off with some of the best vocals in the business, and this is an essential diary date.

After playing a stunning packed out show at The Big Red last November, StoneWire took a little break from gigging to look for a new guitarist and to go back in the studio to write new material. In January Duncan Greenway joined the band as their second guitarist and now, with the line up complete, it is time to hit the road again and play, play, play.

Frontwoman Sky Hunter told us: "After a somewhat difficult 2016 when things just took longer that we hoped they would, we are happy to be complete again and ready to do some much needed rockin'. However, we were not idle during our down time and worked on new material and have a couple of new songs for the show. We are hoping to release a single later in the summer and maybe another towards the end of the year which will hopefully follow up with a second album in 2018."

StoneWire will have London's grunge/stoner power trio Cairo Son as their special guest and the show opener is the up and coming alt-rockers Witchingseason

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.
