Remembering The Classic Rock Of Rose Tattoo, Thor and Great White With These New Releases

Legendary hard rockers Rose Tattoo are ready to release their new album "Outlaws" on March 6th through Cleopatra Records. They will also be heading out on a month-long U.S. tour in May, their first in almost 40 years. Their new thirteen track release finds the band re-recording many of their classic tracks, like "One Of The Boys," "Rock 'n' Roll Outlaw" and "Nice Boys (Don't Play Rock And Roll)." Rose Tattoo sound refreshed when performing these iconic songs, as they give an extra rock and roll swagger to the songs "Sweet Love" and "Snow Queen." The boys get bluesy with the story of "Butcher And Fast Eddie," before picking up the speed with the swift pace of "Remedy" and "TV." Rose Tattoo close out their new album with the big guitar sound of "Bad Boy For Love" and the burning love song, "Rosetta," which was written back in 1975, but has not been featured on a Rose Tattoo album until now.

Keeping with the theme of hard rock icons comes the new album "Rising" from the "God Of Thunder" himself, Thor. Since his the release of his 2015 documentary "I Am Thor," he has been on a creative high, releasing four new albums with his band over the course of the last five years. Their new release features ten tracks, beginning with the thunderous pounding rhythm of "Wormhole" and the quick-hitting, high-energy attack of "Defend Or Die." The album continues with the big, arena rock sound of "The Game Is On" and the dark, evil growl of "Rising Through The Flames." Thor close out their new album with the autobiographical "The Party Never Ends" and the aggressive clash of "Starmaster." To find out more about Thor and their latest release "Rising," please visit

We close with a new reissue of the live album "Stage" from the legendary hard rock band, Great White. This new release is available as a 2CD set or for the very first time as a double gatefold LP set. It features the band's 1993 performance at The Celebrity Theatre in Anaheim, CA and their 1994 performance at the House Of Blues in Los Angeles, CA. This release does not have any overlapping songs from either night, but includes all of best of Great White, with their classic hits like "House Of Broken Love," "Rock Me" and "Can't Shake It." Also included is the band's stellar rendition of Led Zeppelin's "Babe I'm Gonna Leave You" and their hugely popular version of Ian Hunter's "Once Bitten Twice Shy." Relive the band's heyday with this great 25th anniversary release of this live album. To find out more about this new reissue of Great White's "Stage," please visit
