HANOI ROCKS Announces New Drummer

Legendary Finnish rockers HANOI ROCKS have issued the following update:

"HANOI ROCKS are finally announcing their new drummer! Hailing from Sweden, the new member is George Atlagic, nicknamed 'Jolle' among friends. More than 200 drummers applied and five of them were invited to audition with the band. George Atlagic stood out from the five candidates, not only for his talent, but also because of his personality and for being a kindred spirit with the band. Jolle is technically a very skillful drummer and his style is greatly in the vein of the former HANOI ROCKS drummers Gyp Casino and Razzle. He also already looked like he was playing in a successful rock band."

HANOI ROCKS will release a new single, "Teenage Revolution"/"Self Destruction Blues" on May 28. The single is already a collector's item since it includes the original arrangement of "Self Destruction Blues", previously unreleased in Europe by HANOI ROCKS.
