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."
