Ashland, Kentucky-based rockers HYDROGYN have issued the following update:"HYDROGYN is currently finalizing tour dates that will start in June and take them all the way to the Christmas holiday break. The band is going to be doing a lot of U.S. dates this year that will be split up by a run in Europe that is scheduled to start in September in Greece. After the European tour the band is back to the States to finish up the year and then pick back up in January of 2009.
"The band is also gearing up to shoot their first video for the new 'Deadly Passions' CD around May 12th. Bass player Chris Sammons has also just teamed up with Warwick bass and amps as his weapons of choice. You will see Chris using his new gear on tour starting this summer.
"Tour dates will be posted as they are confirmed on Hydrogyn.com and the official MySpace as well. All European dates will be posted as soon as the entire tour is confirmed." HYDROGYN recently inked a deal with Demolition Records's UK-based label DR2. This signing comes on the heels of the band's success with its Billboard-charting "Bombshell" release in 2006, "Strip'em Blind Live" CD success in 2007, coupled with the group's relentless touring in Europe over 2007. The three-album deal will start with the June 24 release of "Deadly Passions". The new CD was recorded in Huntington, West Virginia's Smash Hits Studio and includes a cover of ALANIS MORISSETTE's mega-smash "You Oughta Know". HYDROGYN's current recording lineup consists of Julie Westlake on vocals, Chris Sammons on bass and vocals, Josh Kitchen on drums, Jeff Westlake on guitar, and Andy Caudill on keyboards.
