Banbridge's own drumming dynamo Gordy Gray joins Stormzone!
The band will be debuting the new line-up in Belfast's Limelight 2 on the 29th Oct, supporting Warrior Soul at Distortionfest 2016. Shortly after this, an announcement will be made about a Spanish tour in early 2017, in a return to Stormzone's home from home.
The band is also scheduled to play some of the biggest festivals across the USA and Europe next year, with additional show dates being added in the run up to those.
Gordy will be providing the thunder on the 6th Stormzone album, which is set to be an explosive new chapter in the already weighty Stormzone book.

'Seven Sins' is without a doubt Stormzone's tour-de-force and the ideas the band have for playing it in a live setting (see interview elsewhere) make this album an even more exciting prospect. As Melodic Metal records go, this one is a bit of a monster and it's definitely up there with the best ones I've heard this year.

We've no idea what the review says, but with an 85/100 score, it must be pretty good!
Having just released our 5th album, Seven Sins, we have now added a third guitarist Steve Doherty to the band, expanding Stormzone to a 6-piece to cope with the demands of faithfully recreating the music from Seven Sins live on stage.
Seven Sins has been getting excellent reviews since it's August release and Stormzone has also managed to achieve important exposure with features in European metal websites and magazines including the very influential Metal Hammer magazine. This has significally increased the band's profile around Europe and beyond.
Main focal points for the new stormzone 6-piece line-up are:
New video for Seven Sins album track 'Another Rainy Night', currently under production and set for release mid-November.
Continuing to rehearse and develop a unique stage show with the additional Stormzone personnel in order to build visually on what has been a widely well received new album!
Building on the 'track-by-track' description videos to give people a detailed insight into the characters and motives involved in the adventures contained on 'Seven Sins'.
Developing further Dr Dealer's universe, creating further exploits and circumstances for his traveling emporium and adding more gifted personalities to his Abandoned Souls carnival.
Exploring all possibilities with regards to playing live where and when possible in order to let metal fans in Europe see the new bigger Stormzone line-up and hear an extended set featuring songs from all 5 Stormzone albums!
It all kicks off with a special Halloween album launch on October 31st in the reknowned Diamond Rock Club in Northern Ireland. The band then plans to launch into a series of UK dates before embarking on a Christmas tour of Spain.
"Seven sins" è un album di spessore che conferma gli Stormzone come band di assoluto valore. Se già li conoscete potete andare sul sicuro altrimenti forse è il caso corriate ai ripari e facciate vostro questo dischetto!

Check out the delightful Brenda McTaggart's interview with our very own Harv, Davy and Steve. Lots of cool questions in here, and don't miss the traditional pile-on at the end!!!
Those old-schoolers not too stuck on vinyl or bands that existed pre-198X or not in a band (thinking they’re the best thing since sliced bread) will probably like them and like them in a big way.
