Classic Rock To Give Away New Down ‘N’ Outz Album
My Re Generation, the debut album from Joe Elliott’s Down ‘N’ Outz, will be given away free with Classic Rock next month.
The Down ‘N’ Outz have also confirmed an appearance at Classic Rock‘s High Voltage festival on July 25.
The band is a project fronted by Def Leppard frontman Elliott, backed by The Quireboys and playing rare tracks connected to Mott The Hoople.
The Down ‘N’ Outz supported Mott The Hoople at one of their legendary 2009 re-formation shows at London’s Hammersmith Apollo.
In addition to Elliott (vocals/guitar/keyboards) the band featured The Quireboys’ Paul Guerin (guitar), Guy Griffin (guitar), Keith Weir (keyboards) and Phil Martini (drums), and finally bassist Ronnie Garrity (Raw Glory).
The one-night project took on a life and energy of its own and an album project was born.
My Re Generation was produced by Elliott with co-production by Ronan McHugh. It was recorded at Joe Elliott’s own studio, Joe’s Garage, and Moor Hall studio in Bedfordshire.
Prior to its general release fans will be able to get hold of a free copy of the 10-track album cover-mounted on the issue of Classic Rock magazine on sale on June 23.
An extended version will also be released through Mailboat Records (Joe Perry, Walter Becker, Chris Isaak, Jeff Bridges) on July 13. This will feature three extra tracks unavailable on the Classic Rock-tied release.
Elliott tells us that one of the bonus tracks will be a ‘freakout’ called (wait for it) The Flipside Of The Shameless Whelk!
The Down ‘N’ Outz have also been confirmed to play the main stage of Classic Rock‘s inaugural High Voltage festival at Victoria Park, London on Sunday, July 25.
