Falling Knives 2011 – press release
“This follow-up presents a significant leap forwards. Luke has a monstrous, rich and bluesy set of pipes that would have been right at home in Lynyrd Skynyrd or Molly Hatchet and the band have come up trumps with a convincing and memorable set of kick-ass groove-laden hard rock marauders”
Dave Ling – Fluke? Review in Metal Hammer Magazine, 2010 (rated 7/10)
Rising British modern hard rockers Voodoo Six hit the ground running this winter with a brand new limited edition digital EP in the offering and an extensive UK tour.
Voodoo Six are set to release much-anticipated new EP entitled ‘Falling Knives’ in digital format on November 28. The EP, which will be a special limited edition release, will be available to fans until the end of February. The band will precede the EP release by kicking off their 14-date UK tour in Leicester on November 17. The tour will finish with a set at this year’s sold-out Hard Rock Hell V Festival in Prestatyn.
The Falling Knives EP comes following the success of last year’s album ‘Fluke?’ which was released through Classic Rock’s Powerage Records and mixed by uber studio engineer Mike Fraser (AC/DC, Aerosmith, Metallica, Yngwie Malmsteen), boasting the talent of brand new vocalist and front man Luke Purdie.
In support of the album the band completed full tours with The Union and UFO, as well as their own headline tour of the UK. They also landed slot opening the prestigious Sonisphere Festival in summer 2010 to a packed out Bohemia stage. The band have gained a loyal following of fans from their impressive portfolio of live experience, which has included slots at Download Festival and Bloodstock, one-off slots with Iron Maiden and Cinderella, not to mention kicking off 2011 in fine style with another set of dates supporting flamboyant ex-Hanoi Rocks star Michael Monroe.
The new EP will feature three brand new tracks, the eponymous ‘Falling Knives’, ‘Sharp Sand’, and ‘Stop’, as well as three re-worked and re-recorded versions of tracks from the band’s debut album ‘First Hit For Free’, featuring the driving influence of Luke’s illustrious, raunchy vocals.
Founding member and bassist Tony Newton comments: “It’s been great being back in the studio working on new material for the EP and the new album for next year. We wanted to revisit some of our old songs so that fans can expect to hear them in the live set again and experience Luke’s twist on things. We’re really excited about getting back on the road and building up for what is looking to be an energetic 2012 for V6!”
