  MR. BIG CONFIRM DETAILS OF NEW ALBUM "...THE STORIES WE COULD TELL"
11 August 2014





Hard rock's original supergroup, Mr. Big are back with a vengeance with their new album "...The Stories We Could Tell".

The band's eighth studio album is slated for release in the UK on Monday 22nd September, followed by North American release on Tuesday 23rd September via Frontiers Music Srl.

"This new album rocks," says Paul Gilbert. "I love playing guitar, singing, and writing with Eric, Billy, and Pat. And after 25 years, I'm proud that we can make an album that is melodic, powerful, interesting, groovy, and emotional."

"We wrote songs individually and collectively on this new record," says Eric Martin. "To me this is the album that we've threatened to make decades ago. A classic, groovin', blues-rock record with the spirit and spark of our rock and soul idols from the 70's.

"Hells to the yeah it's a Mr. Big album complete with all the trimmings. I think whether you've been with us from the beginning or just starting, you're going to dig where we are coming from and where we've been."

The original line-up comprised of Eric Martin (vocals), Paul Gilbert (guitar), Billy Sheehan (bass) and Pat Torpey ( drums), are back with some of their most powerful material to date.

The new album is the follow-up to the 2011 release 'What If', that marked the band's return to their signature hard rock sound. The new album is available for pre-order via Amazon UK.

Mr. Big kick off their European tour on Friday October 17th at London's Koko. Visit the www.mrbigsite.com to view all their 2014 tour dates.

The band recently announced that drummer Pat Torpey has been diagnosed with Parkinson's disease. The diagnosis has left him unable to perform his normal drumming duties on the band's upcoming World Tour.

He did complete all of the drumming on the upcoming album, but unfortunately touring will be too difficult for him at the present time.

Mr. Big intends to announce a drummer in the near future who will handle most of Mr. Big's drumming duties on the Autumn 2014 tour and expects Torpey to jump on the drums on suitable live songs as well as participating in the group's acoustic set.

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

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'.
