Ashland, Kentucky-based rockers HYDROGYN have issue the following update:"The band is starting the first American leg this month. The band will also be going to Europe again this year with many big things in store for the European fans as well as always. Look for the tour to start October 3rd in Europe in France. After returning from the European tour, the next leg of the U.S. tour will again take off and it will be a female voices tour package in the U.S. with friends BENEDICTUM when they are available, so keep an eye out for that. Everyone can be assured that the band is going to be touring as much as possible for the remainder of 2008 and into 2009 supporting the new CD, 'Deadly Passions'. The band plans on hitting the south and the West Coast this year as well in the States."
HYDROGYN recently inked a three-album 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. HYDROGYN's latest album, "Deadly Passions", 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.
