Kings Of Leon
On Call new single 2 April

Kaleb, Nathan, Jared and Matthew Followill follow-up the massive success of their 2004 album 'Aha Shake Heartbreak' with the first taste from their new album 'Because Of The Times'. In truth 'On Call' is a mellow affair, mid tempo, a plaintive plea from the heart that may not appeal to all their fans. However a sell-out tour is on the cards
and that always helps. XXXx kingsofleon.com

Dance Rocks
Eddy Temple Morris
new album 9 April

Eddy TM, acknowledged years ago by Chris Evans as one of the finest new DJ's, has scored with his Remix show on Xfm and launching Ibiza Rocks at Manumission. This album project is a superb genre defying mash up of influences kicking of with Snow Patrol's 'Wow' set to an electro backbeat, and as with the whole album it works extra-ordinarily well. XXX

Black Stone Cherry
Rain Wizard new single 26 March
Edmonton, Kentucky spawns new Roadrunner signings Black Stone Cherry. 'Rain Wizard' is the lead single from their self titled debut album. Think 'Black Crowes meets Aerosmith meets Led Zeppelin', in fact the album has been mixed by Kevin Shirley of Aerosmith & Zep fame. With cross-over appeal this is one to watch

The Fray new album 5 March
How To Save A Life

Rush released to coincide with the success of the title track Denver four piece The Fray have scored a real quality listen here. Somewhat reminscent of the Ben Folds Five, jaunty melodies and thoughtful lyrics are underpinned with a back to basics production, piano, drums, guitar and very strong vocals. Plenty of follow-up singles. XXXX
