British rock trio upstarts The Virginmarys are hitting towns all across the US opening for Buckcherry on their SPRING 2014 tour. They were selected by Buckcherry to open for 19 show run that ends in Lubbock, Texas on April 19th.
Starting March 12, 2014 in Anaheim, CA. The tour brings them through Wisconsin, with gigs at The Shack, in Fond du Lac, WI on March 20th and March 24th in Madison, WI at The Annex. The band premiered their new video for the explosive song “Just a Ride” with VEVO in February. The band hails from Macclesfield England and is comprised of guitarist/vocalist Ally Dickaty, drummer Danny Dolan and bassist/vocalist Matt Rose.
Signed to US Wind-Up Records, they blew up 2013 with their debut album "King of Conflict", an album that brings together all the best of grunge rock that is righteously ambitious, full of substance, then adding a sharp distinctive rock edge that is relevant. USA Today hailed the album "…one of the best rock albums of 2013”.
The Virginmarys, who have developed a die-hard international fan base, are gaining momentum in the states with the success of "King of Conflict". Presently they are in the studio working on material for their next album. Looking to make an impact or imprint on the state of rock and roll, the band is genuine about the music they want to produce. According to their Wind-Up Records bio, Ally claims that honesty is at the heart of everything he does and Danny wants The Virginmarys to be a catalyst for new bands to form and create great new music. Matt sees success as blowing away the dross that currently populates daytime radio and creating a world in which their music, and that like it, makes the music world an exciting place to be once more.
Buckcherry are currently promoting their 2013 album, ‘Confessions,’ which has yielded the tracks ‘Gluttony,’ ‘Greed,’ ‘Nothing Left But Tears’ and ‘Lust’. This release came after some growing pains for the band that included some member changes and a record label switch.
Some of the dates have sold out already, but if you get a chance, step out and see these wicked rockers. Their explosive sound and larger than life presence will make you stand up and take notice. ~L
