First, let me extend happy birthday wishes to my mom. She's a big music fan, and bought me a lot of glam records when I was younger. She's especially fond of Poison's "Fallen Angel" from their most successful release Open Up and Say...Ahh!. For a news update, the band's upcoming release POISON'D! is already listed on Amazon for pre-sale. Click the link and add to your basket. It's been my experience that ordering pre-sale means you receive an album on the day of release, delivered to your door without fighting traffic.
Here's the video of "Fallen Angel" for all you Poison fans:
In other glam news, my Swedish boys Hardcore Superstar have posted a new single on their MySpace page. The song is called "Bastards" and will be featured on their new album. The new CD is due sometime in the fall, and will be the band's first release since 1995. Hardcore Superstar is one of the headliners at the upcoming Sweden Rock Festival. This, glam fans, is one festival I would love to attend. Other bands set to perform include Aerosmith (!), Heaven and Hell, Quiet Riot, Skid Row, White Lion, Fastway, CrashDiet, and a crap load of other really awesome bands. Sadly, Vains of Jenna didn't make the cut, but they are still trying to make a go of it here in the states. If you can get to Sweden, the festival runs through June 6,7,8 and 9 in Solvesborg.
