Fashion En Vogue


Yesterday, I showed you some bad cover art but that's not the case today.

Over the weekend, Hanoi Rocks debuted the cover for their upcoming release Fashion. I think the cover is simply brilliant, and actually looks like a spread in Vogue, Elle or Vanity Fair.

The first single is also called "Fashion" and has a release date of May 16 in the U.K. The entire album has a planned September 2007 release in the U.K. and Japan. I guess this means another expensive import purchase! According to the band's Myspace page, the new album will also feature multimedia content with the videos for "Fashion" and a live performance of "Boulevard of Broken Dreams."

This latest incarnation of Hanoi Rocks includes original members Michael Monroe (vocals)  and Andy McCoy (guitar), plus  guitarist Conny Bloom, bassit Andy Christell, and drummer Lacu.

Hanoi Rocks never got huge, and that's a shame. According to the band's official website, an American tour is planned for "someday." After all, a world tour is always in Fashion.

Here's the video for the 2002 single  "People Like Me."

The Good And The Bad!

Good: New Hanoi Rocks album

Bad: Isn't going to be released in the U.S.

I think that the cover is pretty cool to!
"Fashion" should be a great album!

I like the cover. Their last album was alright. However it was far more like Michael's earlier solo material than it was like classic Hanoi Rocks.

Last year I had an opportunity to hang out with original bassist Sami Yaffa. He's in the current incarnation of The New York Dolls, and they recorded their latest album in the studio I used to work at. So those dudes were hangin' around for about a month, working on the record. He's a cool dude... really laid back guy! i didn't get to ask him about Hanoi though.

It's kind of ironic that you posted something about Hanoi Rocks just before posting about Vince Neil singing the praises of the careless life that led to Hanoi Rocks drummer Razzle's death.
