One of rock's most underrated guitarists (both from a technical and compositional point of view), Gary Moore remains relatively unknown in the U.S., while his solo work has brought him substantial acclaim and commercial success in most other parts of the world -- especially in Europe. Born on April 4, 1952, in Belfast, Ireland, Moore became interested in guitar during the '60s, upon discovering such blues-rock masters as Eric Clapton, Jimi Hendrix, and perhaps his biggest influence of all, Fleetwood Mac's Peter Green. After relocating to Dublin later in the decade, Moore joined a local rock group called Skid Row, which featured a young singer by the name of Phil Lynott, who would soon after leave the group to double up on bass and form Thin Lizzy. Skid Row persevered, however, eventually opening a show for Moore's heroes, Peter Green and Fleetwood Mac, and making such an impression on the veteran group that Green personally requested their manager help secure Skid Row a recording contract with CBS (in addition, Green sold Moore one of his most-used guitars, a maple 1959 Gibson Les Paul Standard, which would become Moore's primary instrument).
New Years Day have released a lyric video for their track Relentless. It's taken from their third album Malevolence, out on October 2 via Another Century Records.
They'll tour North America in October to support the release and return to the UK in November with Motionless In White. Vocalist Ashley Costello said earlier this year that the band felt it was important to add a touch of theatrical drama to their live shows.
She told Metal Hammer: "Money isn't that easy to come by these days, so if you are spending it to go see a show, then you really want to see a show. I look back to Rob Zombie and Marilyn Manson and Iron Maiden and I love that they always try to give that to people.
"Obviously, we aren't in the same league as those bands but, if you are creative enough with your thinking you can give people a show. We want to give people a Broadway show in a tiny rock club."
