Hurtsmile call out Rock 'n' Roll Cliche

Hurtsmile, fronted by Extreme and ex-Van Halen vocalist Gary Cherone, have streamed their track Rock ’N’ Roll Cliche from upcoming second album Retrogrenade.

The follow-up to their 2011 self-titled work is set for launch on October 7 via their Slipkid label, following a successful crowfdunding campaign.

Cherone says: “The strength of this record is that all the members contributed to the songwriting, which resulted in a wonderfully creative diversity. This second effort has been a natural progression – we’ve yet to repeat ourselves musically.”

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
