Just as I was wondering what I was possibly going to share with the readership next came the alert about the brand new face of Ghost in Papa Emeritus IV who joined forces with The Hellacopters to deliver a stunning cover of the Rolling Stones “Sympathy For The Devil”. Apparently this was done for the Pa Sparet television game show that has broadcast in Sweden since 1987. Let’s take a look at the clip down below. Enjoy.
They say that the third time is the charm; and this is likely one of the main reasons that the band Lucifer has offered up the news about a third go-round in these United States. Check out the full press details down below the groovy poster and dates and know that I will return with some editorial mumblings.
The Press Release:
Heavy-rock band LUCIFER have just announced their third and final leg of their North American headline tour today. The band will hit the road starting on January 15th in Memphis, TN and ending on January 26th in Tampa, FL.

LUCIFER has been touring nonstop in support of their recent full-length album Lucifer II. The band recently wrapped a tour with The Hellacopters for select European shows in May and their first two North American headline tours.

They have previously performed at KISS Cruise, Psycho Las Vegas, Desertfest, Hellfest, Muskelrock, Sweden Rock, and Freak Valley.

While I still need to catch this band live and do a deeper review of their musical work, I’m happy to keep announcements such as this one coming as the band Lucifer has mapped out a return to North American touring with “Part II” of their run. Learn more beneath the poster.
The Press Release:
Heavy-rock band LUCIFER announce a handful of tour dates for part II of their North American headline tour! The band will hit the road starting on August 12th in Phoenix and ending on August 21st in Vancouver. HAUNT will kick off the tour as direct support for the first few dates, then SPELL will join the tour as direct support for the last three dates. Tickets go on sale on June 21st.
“We are thrilled to announce that we will return a second time this year to North America, this time hitting the West Coast,” states LUCIFER frontwoman Johanna Sadonis. We are also tremendously excited to return to Psycho Las Vegas. With us on all Californian dates will be the mighty HAUNT from Fresno. Ripping Canadian rockers SPELL will be re-uniting with us for the northern dates of this run. Our last excursion was a wild triumph in the cold of winter and we are ready to burn it up this dirty black summer. Don’t forget your leather jacket. We won’t.”

While I’ve heard the name recently, I’ve never managed to do much for the Doomish Hard Rock band Lucifer and I regret this oversight since the songs that I’ve heard I’ve greatly enjoyed. Recently, the band announced their North American Tour and you can examine the poster and the brief statement from the group.
The Press Release:
USA! Canada! LUCIFER IS COMING and we’re starting with the east coast! We are also delighted to announce that special guests SPELL are joining us for the ride. Happy New Year everybody!

Artist: The Hellacopters
Venue: Bowery Ballroom (New York, NY)
Label: Liquor & Poker Music
This was going to be a weird show for me because while I am very open to all sorts of music, I was going into this one on the blind side. Only recently had I even heard the name of the “Hellacopters” and it was from first reading it on the guitar wielded by Dregen of Backyard Babies. He had apparently been one of the key members at one point in his career. I was able to hear their latest release entitled “Rock & Roll Is Dead”, and while this group hails from a land more known for their Metal nowadays let me tell you this; as long as the Hellacopters exist Rock & Roll is very far from dead. The brief US Tour would be the first in a number of years for the guys so as one could expect we were going to hit a completely sold out room. This is never a bad thing and The Bowery Ballroom has a nice setup for a gig like this. They have a good sized stage and a very roomy floor where the dancing was going on full-throttle.
