After an eventful year that saw them support the legendary ALICE COOPER for three legs of his 2006 tour (including a show at the Sturgis Bike Rally), Toronto hard rock quartet CRASH KELLY will return to Southern California — where they performed five shows in five days last August — next week in conjunction with the annual NAMM convention.
In addition to a show with ex-MR. BIG guitarist Paul Gilbert and another alongside BROKEN TEETH (featuring former DANGEROUS TOYS frontman Jason McMaster), the group will make an encore performance in support of the popular '80s metal comedy/tribute METAL SKOOL. These mark CRASH KELLY's first live concerts of 2007.
"I can't wait to bring the CRASH KELLY juggernaut back to L.A. for another round of rock 'n' roll mayhem," says singer/guitarist Sean Kelly. "On top of that, we get to rock at NAMM and bring the show to Anaheim. NAMM is like a rock 'n' roll fantasy camp, and I'm really honored to be a part of it (thanks, B.C. Rich)!"
CRASH KELLY continues to support its sophomore Century Media/Liquor and Poker release "Electric Satisfacti". Produced by Gilby Clarke (GUNS N' ROSES, ROCK STAR SUPERNOVA), the album — inspired in part by the gritty glam of the ALICE COOPER, the catchy power-pop of CHEAP TRICK and the melodic, classic storytelling of THIN LIZZY — was praised by Spin as "an electric guitar-solo laden ode to sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll."
