GRAND SLAM RELEASE FIRST SINGLE "GONE ARE THE DAYS"
GRAND SLAM RELEASE FIRST SINGLE “GONE ARE THE DAYS”
THE NEW ALBUM “HIT THE GROUND” OUT NOVEMBER 22ND
Back in the post Thin Lizzy days, Laurence Archer wrote and performed with Phil Lynott as Grand Slam. Sadly, Grand Slam was cut short in its prime, with Phil Lynott’s untimely death leaving a hole in the fabric of rock music to this day.
Laurence went on to make his name playing with UFO but always nurtured a long-term plan to rebuild the Grand Slam machine. And here it is — primed and ready.
The new band (Laurence alongside Mike Dyer, Benjy Reid and Dave Boyce) honours the traditions of the band’s history whilst also looking to the future — classic tracks co-written by Lynott and Archer sit alongside a set of brand new songs that embody the same ethos of freedom, positivity and adrenalin that ran through Grand Slam in 1984. As such fans will get to hear Lynott co-writes alongside brand new material from a very special band steeped in rock history.
Laurence Archer says: “I’ve been thinking about this moment for many years and I’m so proud of what we, the new Grand Slam, have achieved, Gone Are The Days is the most obvious choice for the first release – it’s a song I originally wrote in the late 80’s but with the band we have captured all the new and the heritage elements of Grand Slam and my writing. Grand Slam are back and here to stay. Obviously at times like this Phil is never far from my thoughts, a friend and a mentor and a hero always”.
Hit The Ground is released through Marshall Records on the 22nd November 2019. The album will be available on CD, LP, digitally and also on Limited Edition Gold Vinyl.
