JADED SUN and PAY*OLA
The Diamond Rock Club
Saturday 14th November.
Two of Ireland's best melodic/classic rock bands unite for a very special night on Saturday 14th November.
PAY*OLA, who are returning to The Diamond for the first time since February and only the second time this year, are in the process of recording their second album.
The band are taking time out to “road test” the new songs before putting the finishing touches to the recording which should be available in early 2010.
To date, the band have released one album and a string of ep’s/singles the last of which “THE COLOUR RED”gained massive critcal acclaim and received loads of airplay.
JADED SUN are from Dublin and have recently released their debut album GYPSY TRIP.
The band who have recently gigged with BON JOVI and BLACK STONE CHERRY to name a few were formed in late 2003 and have spent the last few years honing their sound and songs, playing live in pubs and clubs all round Ireland. In that time they have released 2 EPs "RAW" & "Falling On The Fears" and played some high profile gigs which include headlining an open air festival in Zagreb, Croatia and opening for Bon Jovi in Croke Park.
Here is a few press quotes about the album :-
"The best debut album I've ever heard" (Nicky Horne on Planet Rock)
'Gypsy Trip' is the stunning debut album from Irish classic hard rock band Jaded Sun. This sleazy blues drenched album was released on 28th March on Sian Records. Recorded in LA's “The Mousehouse Studios,” under the supervision of rock producer Richie Mouser (Weezer, Dream Theatre), co-production in the hands of Jimmy Coup (former guitarist with Andrew WK) and mastered by Robert Vosgien (Lenny Kravitz, Bush, Goo Goo Dolls etc...) in Capitol Records CA.
Producer Richie Mouser states "We wanted to produce a rock album that feels fresh and exciting without loosing the band's distinct classic rock sound." adding, "What we've achieved is a very mature debut album". He's not wrong. 'Gypsy Trip' is a thunderous, powerful, guitar driven, bluesy hard rock album which bounds from the speakers with all the exuberance of a 7 week old bull terrier puppy.
"The newest messiah's of rock n' roll" (All Access Magazine, USA)
"This album is stunning" (Live For Metal, UK)
"Jaded Sun are a band that in a few years, their album will be viewed as comparable to the likes of "Dark Side Of The Moon, it is that good"! Nicky Horne on Planet Rock (in the UK)
"I haven't been excited about a rock album as I have been about this one" (Roddie Cleere on WLRFM)
"this is an album of top notch blues based hard rock – turn it up and enjoy".
5/5 (Get Ready To Rock, UK)
"Assuming we actually get a summer this year, Jaded Sun ought to be part of the sound track in a very big way." 5/5 (Classic Rock Magazine)
