The first of our spin-off shows featuring new bands carrying the torch for Classic Rock & Metal.

This month featuring Hellyeah which includes former members of Mudvayne, Damageplan and Pantera, not least superstar drummer Vinnie Paul. They’ve just completed a UK tour with Stone Sour and Avenged Sevenfold and vocalist Chad Gray takes time out to talk about the new album Stampede, his favourite music and just having fun with the band.

White Wizzard are from L.A. and is the brainchild of Jon Leon who was fed up of Emo and Screamo music and wanted to be in a band that sounded more like the ones he loved from the 80s. He’s shuffled the pack in terms of personnel and with a debut album going down a storm they just finished their first headline tour of the UK.

JettBlack have been playing music together since they were kids but this year they got their debut album out, played Download and Ozzfest and toured with labelmates Reckless Love. Following in the footsteps of AC/DC, Kiss, Iron Maiden and other classic rock and metal bands they’re pure fun to listen to.

Primitai hail from Sandhurst in the UK and make no pretence about their adoration of Saxon, Judas Priest and Iron Maiden. However they also bring a much harder edge to their second album, The LIne Of Fire and include influences from the likes of Lamb of God, Machine Head and even some prog rock. Well worth a listen.

Finally The Jokers from Liverpool have a new single, Jamie Jane which brings back the classic sound of the 70s glam rock bands, rarely heard these days. They’re touring in December with Hawkwind so have a listen and get yourselves down to see them.
