PRESS RELEASE 2ND JULY 2014
WHISKEY, fronted by former Xentrix and Hellfighter vocalist Simon
sign with Rocksector Records for debut album release
Black Whiskey, based in Surrey (UK), and formed by the former Xentrix
and Hellfighter vocalist, Simon Gordon, have signed with
Rocksector Records for their debut album release in late 2014.
Over the years the band
members have been involved in genres as diverse as NWOBHM, Thrash
Metal, Blues, Alt Rock and Prog Rock but when Gordon (vocals / ex-Xentrix
and Hellfighter), Kev Ingles (guitar / ex- 3 State Blues and Weapon),
Mark T. Parkin (bass, legendary producer Steve Booker's band) and Rich
Bannister (drums / ex-Nakedium) spoke about putting a band together,
the common ground was Classic Rock.
Black Whiskey draw their influences from the timeless sounds of the
70s and 80s ranging from Led Zeppelin, Free, UFO, Thin Lizzy and The
Scorpions. Their songs are delivered with heart and authenticity, from
the powerful, soulful vocals to the blues-soaked guitar, all
underpinned by the solid groove of the powerhouse rhythm section.
Simon Gordon was vocalist in Xentrix from 1994-1997, during which time
the band toured and released the album "Scourge". In 2008 he formed
Hellfighter with former Xentrix bandmates Kristian Havard and Dennis
Gasser, releasing the album "Damnation's Wings" in 2009.
Mark Appleton, label
manager at Rocksector says "I've known Simon for a few years now,
having first seen him play live in Manchester. His ability and
versatility are obvious to all who've heard him and when he approached
me with a view to helping with this Black Whiskey release, frankly it
took seconds to come up with an answer. He's assembled a quality
line-up that delivers a sound which is as fresh and exciting as it is
A UK Tour is planned for
November and meanwhile the band have confirmed a UK festival
appearance at Rock and Metal Circus on 14th September and are special
guests with NWOBHM legends Chrome Molly on 25th October at the Rock
Den in Hatfield.
A free song "Stone Cold Comfort" is now
available from Soundcloud
