Recommended Posts

Matanuska are going to feature on an Ozzy Osbourne tribute album this year. It features an A-list, who's who of "has-been" rock stars and unsigned peasants such as ourselves. This press release just came out:

Star-studded Ozzy Osbourne Tribute Cover Art Debuts, due in stores June 5!

Due in stores nationwide in North America on June 5th, 2012, Versailles Records presents the FIRST definitive Tribute to Ozzy Osbourne's 40 year reign as the Prince of Darkness over the ever-thriving Heavy Metal genre he helped invent, 'No More Tears: A Millennium Tribute to Ozzy Osbourne- 1971-2012 features rock and metal superstars and many of the hottest rock and metal bands on the rise from around the globe covering Ozzy's Black Sabbath and entire SOLO catalog performed in full-length, hit by hit chronological order over the course of a 3-CD set!

For us lot in sunny Scotland, anyone interested in buying this CD will probably have to get it online. I've seen tribute albums by Versailles records on Amazon a few times over the years. Alternatively, we'll be selling copies at gigs once it's released.


Always cool to see your own band get a mention on Blabbermouth (albeit brief)

It may not be a big-budget, chart-topping release, but it'll get us at least some exposure to the rest of the planet so I'm looking forward to it all the same.
