Summertime is here and to celebrate JOANovARC will release 'Seeds Of Summer' on July 9th. In your face and full of energy, the vibrant single is released as a limited edition 7".

JOANovARC will be making a donation from the proceeds of the single to the victims of the Grenfell Tower tragedy and told us:

"We wanted to help the victims of the Grenfell tower as this tragedy is close to home for us. We have spent many years in London performing, living and working. We would like to give something to the community that has lost so much."

Their video for 'Seeds Of Summer' is premiering today here on MetalTalk, so kick back and watch it here:

The upbeat and happy Seeds Of Summer is taken from their critically acclaimed debut album 'Ride Of Your Life' which was released on Red Vixen Records and received it's very first review right here. MetalTalk's Johnny Main also named 'Ride Of Your Life' as 2016 Album Of The Year right here.

'Ride Of Your Life' was produced by Grammy Award winning Gil Norton (The Pixies, Foo Fighters) and is the journey of the band's life from the beginning to present, the ups and downs on the road.

"We are all great friends but have been through everything together, heartache, death, illness, sweat, blood, great times, addiction, narcotics, break ups, celebrations, fights and tears!

"We are role models, we want to inspire young females and empower them."

Thanks to their relentless touring and high energy shows, JOANovARC have earned the title as one of the UK's most promising rock acts. Bristling riffs and jagged, riotous hooks are their poison - exceptional is not too strong a word.

Monsters Of Rock In Full Flight is strictly limited to 300 worldwide and is available from 30th November but those ordering before 31st October will have their name published within a dedicated page in the book.

It's a deluxe 128 page hardback book in a metal flight case with a narrative by Jerry Bloom.

When promoter Paul Loasby put on the first Monsters Of Rock Festival in 1980 he could probably never have imagined it would become an annual event that would endure for so many years.

Featuring bands from the UK, Germany, Canada and USA, Loasby chose to stage the event at the Donington race circuit in the middle of England and it would prove to be a defining moment for many of the bands on the bill.

Not least for headliners Rainbow as it was the their last ever show to feature drum legend Cozy Powell. As it would happen it turned out to be the last for vocalist Graham Bonnet as well. For many of the other bands on the bill such as Scorpions, Judas Priest and Saxon, they were all on the ascendancy and would soon go on to even greater success.

Now in celebration of this first ever Monsters Of Rock Festival comes this hardback book full of glorious photos of the bands that took to the stage for that inaugural event including back stage shots. Most of these shots have not been published before which add to the uniqueness of this deluxe 128-page book which is packaged in its own flight case.

Also included are stories surrounding the event with tales and recollections from those who were there, including artists and fans alike. Each book will be signed by the author. The 300 will sell fast and definitely go on to become collector's items so order yours now right here to avoid disappointment.
