Cherry Red are a long established record label, having traded since 1978. Initially very much a punk label, their roster and repertoire now cover every genre and cater to every taste, from prog rock to disco, pop to punk; but one thing that seems to have been slightly neglected is a dedicated hard rock label.
To that end, enter Hear No Evil. Marketed and distributed by Cherry Red Records, Hear No Evil will be releasing new albums from Pig Iron, UFO's Paul Raymond Project as well as classic catalogue reissues of long out of print titles by a number of classic hard rock artists.
The new Pig Iron album, 'Pig Iron: IV', will be the first album featuring the lead guitar and backing vocals of Dan Edwards from Sons Of Merrick. The album will feature ten brand new tracks, and is a return to their bluesier, rockier roots, with plenty of harmonica to the fore, as well as a number of acoustic guitar driven tracks.
Across the album's fifty minutes, there'll be plenty of hard rock to keep Pig Iron's fan-base happy, with plenty of tracks ('The Tide Within', 'Carve Your Name' and 'Diggin' The Well', to name but three, aired at last year's Bloodstock Open Air and Bulldog Bash festivals). Ten tracks that will appeal to fans of Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple and Black Sabbath.
