Rogue Male-Liar


Remember Rogue Male? You may remember them for their post-apocalyptic stage attire or the praise given them By Kerrang! magazine. I remember them for their debut which was a solid blast of metal while their sophomore effort was decent, but not quite as sharp. Well, singer guitarist Jim Lyttle has a new version of the band back in action. Rogue Male will play three exclusive UK shows as they continue to write their new album, which is scheduled for release in 2012. Tour dates are as follows.

29 September: London, Purple Turtle
6 October: Birmingham, Roadhouse
8 October: Saltash, Livewire

Their brand new single "LIAR" is now available as a free download exclusively from the band's website and the video to 'LIAR' will also be released shortly.

I listened to "Liar" a few times that I was quite impressed. It's similar to material from their 1985 debut "First Visit". There is a definite Motorhead influence just like on most of that album. It's a real charge ahead type of song with a heavy rhythm section chiming in. In fact if there is one major difference between this song and the band's 80's material it's that "Liar" is heavier. Plus the production is quite spectacular. I didn't know what to expect from Rogue Male at this point in their career. However if the rest of their next album will be as god as this then this will certainly be an album to look forward to in 2012.

Man, let us hope the new album is as good as this single. It has been a good year for older bands releasing new music. What with Hell, DeathMask, Bitches Sin and the like.
