Press Release

Band announce ‘Make Way For The King’ album,

live UK dates forthcoming

Voodoo Six return to the scene with the release of their fourth studio album, ‘Make Way For The King’, released via Cadiz Music on 8 September 2017.   Exclusive special editions will be available via www.pledgemusic.com/voodoosix; anyone pre-ordering through PledgeMusic will receive, ahead of the album’s release, an exclusive Radio Edit of the album title track ‘Make Way For The King’.

‘Make Way For The King’ boasts twelve brand new tracks and was recorded in Los Angeles in 2017.  The record was produced by Tom Fletcher [Suicidal Tendencies, Ozzy, Steve Lukather, Yes, Jeff Beck, Scorpions, Toto, Malmsteen].  ‘Make Way For The King’ will be the first album to feature new vocalist Nik Taylor-Stoakes.  Voodoo Six specialise in a delivering driving, contemporary rock with an undercurrent of blues and cut through with killer riffs.  Classic Rock approved of their, “groove, pace, power, insistent songs and some stunning musicianship.”

In support of ‘Make Way For The King’, Voodoo Six are also preparing to announce UK tour dates. The band are a renowned live force, having toured all over Europe, notably as special guests for Iron Maiden, and indeed for Steve Harris’ British Lion, but have also performed four times at the Download Festival and twice at Sonisphere.

Founder member Tony Newton said of the new record and fresh start for the band, “It feels like this is the right time for us to return. We’re incredibly proud of the new material and can’t wait both for people to enjoy ‘Make Way For The King’ at home but also to join us for what are going to be some amazing live shows!”

The current Voodoo Six lineup consists of Nik Taylor-Stoakes (Lead Vocals), Matt Pearce (Guitar), Craig Price (Guitar), Tony Newton (Bass) and Joe Lazarus (Drums).

The new album shows just why the band has gathered such a loyal following since forming in 2003.  There may have been a few bumps in the road along the way but with ‘Make Way For The King’ Voodoo Six show that they are still in with a chance of seizing the crown.

Reviews for STICT

 

“Suddenly everything’s come together. There’s groove, pace, power, insistent songs and some stunning musicianship. These are outrageously catchy anthems that prove Voodoo Six now have what it takes to be massive.”

8/10

Malcolm Dome, Metal Hammer

 

“Voodoo Six come bearing a hard, dusty-desert-driving dose of crunch’n’rock. Passion and technical proficiency isn’t lacking, impressive solos and cool off-beat rhythms kick out in the rugged but rich sound they purvey.”

Polly Glass, Classic Rock

 

“One of the UK’s finest musical products of recent years, Voodoo Six is currently flying high. Class dripping from every note, the band fires a continuous fusillade of great riffs and addictive licks, and Purdie consolidates his claim as one of the UK’s very finest hard rock vocal stylists.

Expect STICT to be topping those end-of-year best-of polls all over the place. Outstanding.”

9/10

Harry Paterson, Powerplay

 

“This really is an impressive album. I already knew that Voodoo Six are a great live band, so it’s nice to see that their albums are just as impressive.”

5/5

Festivalphoto.net

 

“British rockers Voodoo Six are back with a bang.”

7.5/10

The Midland Rocks

 

“STICT is completely solid throughout. There’s plenty of hard and heavy rocking numbers to thrill and satisfy. Yet it’s full of creativity, structure and wonderful melodies. An early contender for one of the albums of the year.”

9/10

Planet Mosh

 

“The record gets right to the point from the off, with catchy vocals, and a few violently beautiful guitar solos, of which we see right throughout the album. It’s true to say that not everything that glitters is gold, however it seems that some lucky prospector has found a thick vein of the rich stuff here.”

8/10

Bring The Noise

 

“A killer album, some of the best Hard Rock/Metal that the UK has produced in recent years.”

Rocktopia

 

“A great rock and roll album which draws heavily on classic influences, whilst still managing to maintain a modern sound which allows it to fit in with the 21st century’s rock and metal scene.”

8/10

Nick Webb Reviews

 

“I cannot recommend this album highly enough which I am sure will feature on many peoples Best Of 2013 lists. Superb.”

Rockgig Reviews

 

“The whole album is a triumph, you will struggle to find a better riff-laden heavy rock offering this year.”

4/5

Get Ready To Rock

 

“Voodoo Six are doing things right. If you don’t come away from it gurning with enjoyment then rock is not for you.”

4/5

Fortitude Magazine

 

“Meet your next hard rock heroes. Voodoo Six arrive with the fanfares of their music so high of quality that even die-hard classic hard rock fans won’t be disappointed.”

Rock Britain

“Eleven amazing blues influenced rock tracks that just seem to get progressively better throughout.”

5/5

Jukebox:Metal

 

“Not just the spectacle of glitter, a full blown treasure trove guarded by the best rock has to offer, STICT is an album of real grit and steely determination and stamped all over it, the words 18 carat gold.”

4/5

Liverpool Sound and Vision

 

“Their latest album is a melting pot of strong songs that are rooted in classic hard rock, blues and stoner, the fat riffs shred a wig from the skull.”

7/10

Metal.de

 

“There’s no fluke to their newfound glory – they deliver modern hard rock with some great melodic twists, and tightness as a unit.”

7/10

Metal Mouth

 

“Paying just enough homage to the godfathers of British rock whilst retaining its own identity, Songs To Invade Countries To is a powerful, inventive and catchy as hell record that’s got its sights squarely fixed on your nation; and trust me, it’s the soundtrack to your surrender.”

8/10

Daily Dischord

 

“Great album, listen!”

8/10

Burnyourears.de

 

“The guitars rock, the bass rumbles, drums smash and the vocals are the whiskey soaked cherry. This a true call-to-arms for fans of powerful British heavy rock, an album full of songs that will lead Voodoo Six to a few dictatorships around the world!”

9/10

Musipedia of Metal

 

“All songs feature a sophisticated and creative songwriting, each note its place, every guitar solo has its place. The percussion drives the song forward and, as the bass, precisely blended to each song.”

8/10

Time For Metal

 

“Effortlessly excellent raw vocals, a hard rock edge and guitar playing to write home about, Voodoo Six have undoubtedly excelled themselves once more.”

Recent Live Reviews

 

“Suddenly they look and sound like a big band. Live the five now have a confidence and attitude that you’d only expect from musicians who belong on arena stages.”

The Garage, London – Malcolm Dome, Metal Hammer

 

“The band hit the stage full of confidence and for 40 minutes we were treated to a display that will only send the band higher, showing off Voodoo Six’s qualities of huge slabbing riffs, thunderous drums and 2 guitarists who are as adept riffing or soloing. It will be interesting to see where the band go from here as they deserve to be huge!!!!”

O2 Arena – Rock Gig Reviews

 

“Voodoo Six soon silenced all the doubters when they walked out in front of the Maiden family. They showed the charm and skills that would one day make them headline arenas.”

O2 Arena – Metalrecusants

 

The band exploded onto the stage, showing off the depth of songwriting and playing that the band have by the bucketload. Voodoo Six are the future of the British rock scene and I for one can’t wait to see what they can produce over the next decade and more.

The Underworld, London – Rockgig Reviews

 

“Moreso than the great crowd connection the whole band managed to induce, one of the highlights of the show was in fact the great connection the band had with each other, this band was made for playing live and they enjoy every minute of each show. It is evident that this is just the beginning for Voodoo Six.”
