London Quireboys Bring Back Vi

The London Quireboys will finally have their reunion album This Is Rock 'N' Roll released in the U.S. The album came out in Europe last summer through Sanctuary Records but the U.S. release has been delayed ever since. Now Sanctuary is releasing the rock n’ rollers’ latest effort here on February 19th, and with the break-up of the Black Crowes, the timing couldn’t be better as American could use a shot of good ol’ barroom blues rock. In an age where trends and gimmicks rule the mainstream, few bands are taking the initiative to go against the grain, have a good time, and do what 'just feels right'. The London Quireboys are one of the select few who understand what made the Faces, Stones, and Aerosmith tick – swagger, attitude, chops and plenty of great songs!!

Bursting onto the scene in the late ‘80s, London Quireboys exemplified what could only be described as gritty, blues-based rock n' roll, a style formerly explored and made famous by Rod Stewart and The Rolling Stones (and later shared by the band's contemporaries Buckcherry and The Black Crowes). This breath of fresh air in the strangled 'hair-band' era brought the band immediate favor with radio and led to being managed by none other than Sharon Osbourne. London Quireboys infectious rock anthems quickly presented the band with massive touring opportunities, opening for the likes of Whitesnake, Aerosmith, and their heroes The Rolling Stones! This high-profile attention piqued the interest of production guru Bob Rock (Metallica, Mötley Crüe), who spearheaded the band's sophomore studio album.

Hungry to re-awaken the masses to a since-forgotten art form, London Quireboys spent the past year touring extensively throughout Europe and Canada, resurrecting honest, good vibes and reminiscing the good ol' days! The band's return was quickly alerted to Sanctuary Records who signed them immediately, and now the band is poised to bring the rock back to the States, charged with a super-charged, bluesy monument of an album, appropriately titled This is Rock 'N' Roll.

The title cut will be the first single from the album, which impacts at the Mainstream Rock Panel on February 5th, and the album's release will follow on the 19th.
