GUY-MCCOY-TORME Secures U.S. Deal With KOCH For Forthcoming Album

GUY-MCCOY-TORME (GMT) — which features in its ranks Irish guitarist Bernie Torme (GILLAN, OZZY OSBOURNE), along with his old compadre from GILLAN, bassist John McCoy (who has worked with Joey Belladonna, SAMSON, and the UK SUBS, among others) and drummer Robin Guy (whose credentials include FAITH NO MORE and BRUCE DICKINSON) — has secured a deal with Koch Distribution for the U.S. release of its forthcoming sophomore album, titled "Evil Twin".

In a recent interview, Bernie Torme stated the songwriting process for "Evil Twin", "It's going great! I haven't any really stand-out favorites yet because I try to avoid it, to be honest, up until the point of the mixes because at that point it becomes… working on tracks that you're not keen on becomes very difficult. I try to kind of hold judgement on that, and any tracks that I'm consciously not that keen on I try to work harder on to try and make them good. Because, you know, in terms of the 'Bitter & Twisted' album, the two tracks we had an enormous amount of problems on was the title track and 'Miss the Buzz'. Now both of those tracks turned out rather well, but I think if you'd have asked either John or me about them before completion we'd have gone, 'Oh dear…' It's hard to tell. It's sort of like having children; you try and treat them all with an even hand."

GUY-MCCOY-TORME in July released a picture-disc version of its new EP, entitled "Punko Rocco". The EP features two brand new tracks — "Punko Rocco" and "Wheel Of Fortune" — plus a live version of "Wild West".
