UFO head for the stars

null

UFO will launch their latest album A Conspiracy Of Stars early next year, they’ve announced.

The band: frontman Phil Mogg, keyboardist/guitarist Paul Raymond, guitarist Vinnie Moore, drummer Andy Parker and bassist Rob De Luca, will release the follow-up to 2012’s Seven Deadly on February 23 via Steamhammer/SPV.

And they’ll also take to the road across Europe to support the album, including 17 dates in the UK and Ireland starting in April.

The band say in a statement: “A Conspiracy Of Stars is another successful combination of those typical UFO elements with fresh, contemporary ideas. We’re confident that not only our longstanding supporters will get their money’s worth, but that younger rock fans will also enjoy the album.”

Their record label will also launch a Blu-ray titled Showtime on December 1. It was filmed during their 2005 tour supporting album You Are Here. Along with the live performance, the disc also features bonus features including interviews and a making of documentary.
