IRON CLAW Return After More Than 35 Years With A Brand New Album and Live Shows

Scotland’s Proto-Metal pioneers, Iron Claw, return with a long-awaited album of gritty, blues-based melodic heavy rock that is already garnering album-of-the-year accolades from the press. The thirteen-track album, 'A Different Game', is scheduled for UK release on October 3rd and world-wide release on October 4th, just in time for the band's CD release event to be held at the Barlinnie Prison in Glasgow, Scotland on October 5th.

“The release of this album marks the realization of a lifelong dream for each of us in the band,” says guitarist Jimmy Ronnie. “To be honest, it's something that I had thought had passed me by. But it's not just any album. It's the record that Iron Claw always needed to make - hard, heavy, guitar-based rock with its roots in the blues. I'm delighted to say that we've succeeded in capturing the live spirit of the band on this record.”

The Barlinnie Prison gig is more than just a CD release event. The performance is sponsored by Governor Derek McGill to help show the prisoners that there are healthier alternatives to crime, such as playing and creating emotionally stimulating music.

“I am confident the prisoners in Barlinnie will love this Gig,” McGill states, “This is not about entertainment for prisoners; it is to let them see alternative recreational pursuits that can lead them away from crime, introduce them to hobbies such as music that can give them a fresh start.”

The benevolent beings of Iron Claw have also announced that they will be headlining a charity event on September 25th at Comlongon Rocks, which will assist Cash For Kids and Cancer Research. Twenty-two bands and six DJs, and all for a mere £10! For more information, please follow the link:
