become a keeper of the flame
Greetings, Keepers of the Flame, it’s been quiet over here in Ignitor-land for way too long! We have some really good news to share.
First up, we’re opening for GWAR here in Austin on November 22nd at The Scoot Inn here in Austin, Texas. Batlord is excited about this because he hasn’t seen them since his band Agony Column supported them on tour in the 1990s. You might already know about our new members - bass player Billy Dansfiell and rhythm guitarist Robert Williams. These guys have re-energized the band and represent a new beginning for us in many ways, and we’re already building on that fresh momentum. We’re playing the Ragnarokkr Metal Apocalypse Festival in Chicago on May 8, 2016. Brazilian label Dies Irae will be reissuing our debut 2005 album “Take to the Sky” and our fourth 2012 album “Year of the Metal Tiger” for worldwide release on 180-gram vinyl LPs sometime in early 2016. We’ll have a bunch of those for sale at Ragnarokkr so bring your knots and prize livestock for the trading post. Finally, we have been hard at work on a new album for a 2016 release date which will be available on vinyl and CD formats, and some fun multimedia stuff. Exciting year ahead for Ignitor so stay tuned right here.
DANGEROUS TOYS - Teas'n Pleas'n Irvine
Dangerous Toys were another one of the bands that laid waste to Riki Rachtman's Cathouse Live Festival event in Irving Meadows in Irvine, CA toasting to the glorious ‘80s alongside other acts like Dokken, L.A. Guns, Faster Pussycat, and more.
Jason McMaster still fronts the band and while their last album was released in 1995 (The R*tist 4*merly Known As Dangerous Toys), the Toys still play shows and will be hitting the Midwest in the fall for a few dates and are confirmed for the 2016 Monsters Of Rock Cruise.
Greetings and happy new year, Keepers! Yes we've neglected this space for too long but we just wanna let you know that Ignitor still here and working on new material for an upcoming EP. We'll be playing a lot more shows in 2015 than ever before! More exciting band developments to report as well in the coming days...stay tuned here and to Facebook and Twitter for more updates.
