LILLIAN AXE - "DEATH COMES TOMORROW"

 

 

4.15.12

...Guilford hopes the guitar - which will travel with Blaze and his band as they go on tour this summer - will create a buzz ahead of its eventual auction. All proceeds will go to the families of the NATC-A Nine.

The guitar, which is a model called the "Redeemer," will have decals of the Purple Heart and Silver Star on the front. The neck reads "U.S. Air Force" in mother-of-pearl inlay. The back is the same dark blue used in rank insignia and will have a backplate with the names of the NATC-A Nine.

 

Blaze will play the guitar only on the Lillian Axe song "Take a Bullet." The tune is dedicated to members of the military who have paid the ultimate sacrifice, according to the band's website...

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

New Orleans, LA; March 1, 2012

Louisiana Music Hall of Fame Members, Lillian Axe, love, support and appreciate the sacrifices our armed forces put themselves in every day of their lives to protect our freedom. As a token of their gratitude, Steve Blaze will be playing a specially custom made guitar from Guilford Guitars on their US tour during the song "Take The Bullet" and the guitar will be raffled off in a contest and all the money from the contest will go to the families of the fallen airmen who gave the ultimate sacrifice for our country in Afghanistan. The idea was brought to Steve Blaze by huge Lillian Axe fan and beloved friend, Major Henry Cecil of the United States Air Force. Major Cecil says:

"The story behind the guitar is pretty cool. I was talking to Steve one day and he was telling me he had two new guitars on the way. I had been thinking about my idea for quite a while but I was not quite sure how to approach Steve with it. During our conversation I told Steve I had a crazy idea about a guitar and if he had a few minutes I would share it with him. I asked him what he thought about getting John Guilford to build a guitar to honor the fallen airmen that were killed in Afghanistan last year. I thought maybe he could tour with it, tell the story, honor their ultimate sacrifice and then raise money for the families by raffling it off after a set amount of time. Steve said absolutely and that he would play the guitar on "Take the Bullet", when they are out on tour. Steve talked to John about it and then I had the green light to talk to John. I sent John an email and we talked on the phone the next day. John has been amazing and enthusiastically has agreed to build the guitar. The guitar is a Steve Blaze redeemer model. The top of the guitar will be the Air Force’s latest camouflage pattern which is a digital tiger stripe. The back of the guitar will be a gloss dark blue which is the color of the thread used in the rank insignia and name tapes on the uniform. The names of the fallen that were lost on April 27, 2011 will be engraved on the back of one of the metal plates that cover the electronics along with a purple heart medal, the silver star medal, the Lillian Axe Logo and the Guilford Guitars scripted name. Another really nice touch will be the U.S. Air Force logo laid into the neck of the guitar. I cannot say thank you enough to everyone involved. This is all about honoring the fallen and helping out their families as much as we can."

So come out on tour and see Steve play this special guitar but most importantly honor the fallen airmen who gave their lives in the face of battle so we could be here today.
 

Be sure to check back for more details.


We salute you!

Brian, Steve, Sam, Eric and Ken

The response to our new album in Europe has been amazing. The fans there have been waiting a very long time for a brand new Lillian Axe album. Our label in Europe, AFM Records, has been busting their butts promoting the album and getting us radio airplay. Steve has been doing many interviews and the reviews of the album have been great so far. And that is just the beginning. If all goes as planned, we will be touring Europe at the end of March. The European version of the new album will contain a special bonus song called "Angels Among Us." Also a special limited edition is being made that will also contain a Lillian Axe T-shirt. The European release date will be January 27. The single being worked in Europe is called Babylon.
More great news. Our new album will be released in Japan on February 13 through Disk Union. Our fans in Japan have been begging for a new album and the wish is our command. Japan, here we come.
February 14, Valentine's Day is the release date for the USA and Canada on our new label CME Records. There are a few surprises on new album for you, the fans. Wait until you hear them. (hint hint wink wink)
The single, Lava On My Tongue, hits metal radio stations on January 16 and the single, Caged In, hits active rock radio on February 13. Call your local radio stations and demand to hear new Lillian Axe.
The band sounds great and Brian hit it out of the park. Brian's vocals are angelic yet they have a big set of balls to them. We know it has taken us a really long time to make this album. You, our fans will not be disappointed. We took our time to make an album that you would be proud of.

Some of the titles are " Bow Your Head", " "Gather Up the Snow", "Soul Disease", " The Great Divide", etc.

Per Blaze, " This is an important album as it introduces Brian Jones on vocals. As I have been writing this record, there has been a feeling of creativity that is similar to that of when I wrote Psychoschizophrenia. The band has really done a great job so far. We can't wait to get back out on the road to support it."

 

 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

Lillian Axe announces their new singer and new single.

 

New Orleans, LA – March 7, 2011

Louisiana Music Hall of Fame members, Lillian Axe are proud to announce Jackson, Mississippi, native Brian Jones, as their new lead vocalist. Steve Blaze, lead guitarist and band founder says “We have spent the last six months searching for and reviewing candidates to the point of driving us crazy.” Blaze continues, “Choosing your front man is the most vital task in a band’s existence, so we really took our time to make sure that the person we chose fit every category to the best of their abilities. Brian is a complete breath of fresh air. He is an amazing talent, as well as a fireball of enthusiasm, which has really sparked the attitudes of the rest of us.”

Jones, vocalist for the bands Guns of Addiction and Full Moon Circus, as well as guitarist for Wind-up Artist, Papercut Massacre, approached Blaze for the job in September. He states, "When I initially approached Steve about the possibility of becoming the new vocalist for Lillian Axe, I honestly didn't know what to think and had a plethora of thoughts running amuck in my head. Having been a lifelong fan of the band and looking to Steve as a mentor for so many years, coupled with the fact that I was being asked to

audition for one of my favorite bands, was a bit much to take in. I knew this was what I wanted to do and have been playing now for over 20 years, but I never would have imagined I'd be playing with Lillian Axe. The guys have been amazing and have taken me in quite nicely. I look forward to the many years to come and to the new music that we will be sharing with the fans.”

The Axe has commenced recording their eleventh album at Sound Landing Studios in Covington, Louisiana with the team of Steve Blaze as producer and Rob Hovey as engineer, due for a September 27, 2011; via Love and War Records /Mega Force Records / Sony Red Distribution. The first track, Take the Bullet, will be available for download on April 12. Says Blaze, Take the Bullet is a very special song for us. Several months ago, I received an email from Air Force Major Henry Cecil, who was stationed in Kabul, Afghanistan. He expressed his appreciation and gratitude for the dedication to the troops on our last album, Deep Red Shadows. He proceeded to send me an American Flag that had traveled on several helicopter missions, official patches, coins, autographs from his squadron, and even a copy of Deep Red Shadows autographed by General David Petraeus himself. We were incredibly honored and humbled, and since then, I have become good friends with Major Cecil. Several weeks ago, he drove to Covington and spent two days in the studio with us as we recorded Take the Bullet. I wrote this song in dedication to our troops for their heroic sacrifice for our country and their display of true brotherhood.”

Air Force Major Henry Cecil says, “I’ve been following Lillian Axe since 1987 and after reading the last page of the new CD’s liner notes, I immediately sent Steve an email thanking him from a long-time fan and that I was having a flag flown over Afghanistan, accompanied by the CD. I mailed the flag to Steve on 9-11-10 and included patches from the squadrons that took the flag on their missions, as well as an ISAF (International Security Assistance Force) coin to tie everything together that is in the display case for the flag. During my deployment, I had the honor to work with General Petraeus’ security team and made friends with them. I asked if they could have the General sign the liner notes to say thanks to Steve and he did. Steve and I have become great friends from this and we talk on a regular basis now. He invited me to watch Lillian Axe record Take the Bullet, and I can honestly say I was speechless after watching it all come together and couldn’t believe I was actually getting to watch them in the studio. It was truly an honor I will never forget.”
 

The month of April will be a busy one for the band. Take the Bullet will be released for download on April 12, introducing the voice of Jones. Also, Cuba Gooding, Jr.’s new movie, The Hit List will feature 47 Ways to Die as the opening song to the movie. The band will play six dates in the South to support Deep Red Shadows and celebrate their ten-album history.

Blaze states, “It gets more and more difficult to put together a set-list as we keep creating more and more music; however, this tour will bring new songs and new production as we start this new chapter in the history of Lillian Axe.”
