HANOI ROCKS guitarist Conny Bloom has posted the following message on his official web site:"Hey! Back from Japan! Had a wonderful time and the band just keeps sounding better. We had a chance to see some incredible places, too, and after a very sobering visit to the Hiroshima memorial museum, I can only think of three words; Ai To Heiwa ('love and peace' in Japanese). Thanks to the Japanese crew and to all the fantastic fans that attended the shows. After Nippon, straight to Helsinki (Finland) for a one-off show at Tavastia. The gear didn't arrive in time, and our crew got no rest, as they had to find new guitars, pedals, strings etc. etc. for the show. Jetlagged as fuck, we did took the stage in a haze and finished off the tour with big smiling faces. Coming up: festivals in Europe." HANOI ROCKS' latest album, "Another Hostile Takeover", was released in Finland on March 30 via Major Leidén Productions. A U.S. release date for the CD has yet to be announced. "Another Hostile Takeover" is the group's first album to feature Bloom (SILVERGINGER 5, ex-ELECTRIC BOYS), who joined the band last year.
