HANOI ROCKS ANNOUNCE NEW SINGLE AND DRUMMER:
May 25, 2008
Hanoi Rocks are finally announcing their new drummer!
Hailing from Sweden, the new member is George Atlagic, nicknamed “Jolle” among friends.
More than 200 drummers applied and five of them were invited to audition with the band. George Atlagic stood out from the five candidates, not only for his talent, but also because of his personality and for being a kindred spirit with the band. Hanoi Rocks comment on the decision: “Jolle is technically a very skillful drummer and his style is greatly in the vein of the former Hanoi Rocks drummers, Gyp Casino and Razzle. He also already looked like he was playing in a successful rock band.”
Hanoi Rocks are releasing a new single Teenage Revolution/Self Destruction Blues on May 28th, 2008. The single is already a collectors item since it includes the original arrangement of Self Destruction Blues, previously unreleased in Europe by Hanoi Rocks.
Hanoi Rocks’ summer is busy as always – the band will play at the biggest Finnish and Swedish rock festivals and will also visit Norway, Estonia and the UK.
