the union




The Union will take to the road for a handful of dates in the UK this October. These shows represent the band's first headline shows since playing successful opening slots this year for Thin Lizzy, Whitesnake and Aussie legend Jimmy Barnes.

This tour will also be the first opportunity to hear songs from the band's forthcoming second album 'Siren's Song' which is released 3rd October through Payola Music. You can listen to the whole album by clicking here.

Pete; "Like Vikings of old, we'll be storming into a town near you to wreak havoc in the name of blues based rock. Instead of swords and shields we'll be wielding nothing but our guitars and a bunch of new songs that will (hopefully) take you to Valhalla and back. We also promise to keep the raping and pillaging to a minimum. See you out there!"

Luke; "We're really itching to out there and play our own shows! I think the new album is going to translate really well to the live environment and we can't wait to see all the friends we made on the road earlier this year."

NOW AEROSMITH FANS CAN HAVE THEIR NAME IN FUTURE COLLECTOR'S ITEM

aerosmith

Here's a fabulous Aerosmith pictorial document as seen through the lens of famed British photographer Tony Mottram. Tony photographed the band over many years for various magazines and now has a monthly column here on MetalTalk.

As was often the case, only one photo ever got published and in the fast moving world of weekly magazines sometimes entire sessions would be done and left undeveloped.

Tony started shooting Aerosmith from towards the end of the period with Jimmy Crespo and Rick Dufay and onwards through the return of original members Joe Perry and Brad Whitford that resulted in the albums 'Done With Mirrors', 'Permanent Vacation' and 'Pump'.

As well as shooting the band several times in England, this collection includes images from a session at the band's rehearsal room in Boston. Littered throughout is a mixture of live and off stage photos including a selection of photos taken at London's famous Marquee club when they were joined on stage by Jimmy Page.

This limited edition hardback book, presented in a flight case and printed on silk paper, is an opportunity to own a unique selection of photos, most of which have never seen the light of day before.

This unique item is presented in an aluminium flight case and will be published in late November. Earlybird subscribers who order by 31st October will have their name printed within a dedicated page in the book.
