HOLY RAGE/ex-JUDAS PRIEST singer Al Atkins has issued the following update:
"We [the members of HOLY RAGE] have all been busy towards the end of 2007 in one way or another.
"Wwe had a great gig a few weeks ago playing alongside SKID ROW to a capacity crowd at our favourite haunt JB's nightclub [in Dudley, England].
"Mike [De Jager, guitar] guested with our old mate, guitarist Dennis Stratton (ex-IRON MAIDEN) at Eddie's reunion gig at The Live Club in Milan, Italy. Also Chris [Johnson, guitar] is now off to play an outdoor Hogmany Festival on New Year's Eve, guesting with crazy rockers FUBAR, fronted by our good friend Ronz up in Stonehaven, Scotland. A 20,000-capacity crowd is expected! And a few beers, knowing Chris!
"It looks set to be a great start for the band in the 2008, with our first gig at The Knitting Factory in Hollywood, California on the 4th of January playing alongside Graham Bonnet and the TAZ TAYLOR BAND and also USA band IMAGIKA.
"We kick off a six-week UK and European tour in March again with Graham Bonnet and then in June we go back to USA for an East Coast tour with SAXON.'
