PAUL RAYMOND PROJECT's 'Terms & Conditions Apply' Due In January

Paul Raymond, songwriter, keyboardist and rhythm guitarist of legendary cult hard rock outfit UFO, has inked a deal with Cherry Red Records' new hard rock imprint label Hear No Evil for his new solo album with the PAUL RAYMOND PROJECT.

The new album, entitled "Terms & Conditions Apply", is set for a worldwide release on January 28, 2013. It will mark the sixth release by the group and features a guest appearance from Michael Schenker (MSG, UFO, SCORPIONS) on a cover of "Reach Out (I'll Be There)" and by Reuben Archer (STAMPEDE, WILD HORSES, LIONHEART, LAUTREC) on "Love Is Blind".

Paul Raymond is set to play some select regional solo U.K. shows to promote "Terms & Conditions Apply" in the New Year, including a special headline launch show at London's Borderline venue on Friday, February 1, before resuming his duties touring with UFO. The shows will feature STAMPEDE vocalist Reuben Archer, among other special guests, and will showcase the new material as well as UFO classics. Regional dates are yet to be announced.

Paul Raymond is primarily best known for his work in UFO, having joined the band's ranks in 1976. Beginning with "Lights Out" in 1977, to date Paul has appeared on 11 UFO albums, including the incendiary double live "Strangers In The Night". In a varied career, he's also been a key member in a number of acts, including '70s legends SAVOY BROWN, CHICKEN SHACK, MICHAEL SCHENKER GROUP and WAYSTED.

The PAUL RAYMOND PROJECT (PRP) was first formed in 1989 in Japan featuring original lineup of Frank Di Mino (formerly of ANGEL) on lead vocals and Masoyoshi Yamashitu (LOUDNESS) on bass. Paul spent 1990 writing new material, inspired by the resurgence of straight-ahead blues/rock led by bands such as THE BLACK CROWES and the QUIREBOYS, until, joined by guitarist Andy Simmons, the third incarnation of the project released "Man On A Mission" through Zoom Club Records. It was to be nine years before Paul and Andy joined forces again and recorded "Virtual Insanity" as UFO had once again intervened. In 2010, together with bass player Mark Coles and drummer Tony Steel, they began working on "Terms & Conditions Apply".
