Michael Monroe: Former Hanoi Rocks frontman announces new live album via Spinefarm Records UK

Michael Monroe, iconic rock‘n’roll frontman and founding member of hugely influential Finnish outfit Hanoi Rocks, will release a live album, ‘Another Night In The Sun’, on September 27th 2010 via Spinefarm Records UK.

Mixed in LA by Niko Bolas (whose credits include Neil Young, Frank Sinatra, Keith Richards, Kiss, Spinal Tap and more) and mastered by Grammy winner Richard Dodd (the man behind Tom Petty & Dixie Chicks), this 15-track release – recorded on July 6th at the Tavastia Club, Helsinki – features key tracks from Monroe’s solo career spiced up with selected Hanoi classics, some well-chosen covers, plus two brand new, unreleased songs.

Says Monroe: “No excuses, it is what it is, and will probably end up sounding great with all its clunks and flaws, once it’s mixed and finished. Obviously, we’re not doing any overdubs, so you’ll have a very raw ‘rough and ready-or-not’ live recording of another rockin’ night in the sun in the beautiful Finnish summer!”

In the wake of the album’s release, Monroe (plus regular band: Wildheart’s mainman Ginger on guitar, ex-Hanoi member Sammy Yaffa on bass, Steve Conte of New York Dolls & Company Of Wolves fame on guitar, and Karl ‘Rockfist’ Rosqvist on drums, a Swedish/Finnish drummer who has played with both Chelsea Smiles & Danzig) will Special Guest with Motörhead on their UK tour in November.

The legendary ’Head are celebrating 35 years on the rock‘n’roll frontline, performing 15 shows all over the country.
