Bluebeard


BLUEBEARD IS REBORN!!!


Los Angeles cult rock band Bluebeard has reformed and released its first album of new material in over 25 years, "Deluxe With Reverb." Produced and published by new independent music label Shelter From the Storm Records, "Deluxe With Reverb" features a selection of new material, re-recorded and re-mastered songs from the band's late-70s heyday, and a hard-charging cover version of INXS' "Pretty Vegas."

Bluebeard has been around for nearly 30 years and was a mainstay of the Southern California club scene in the 70s and 80s, playing dates with everyone from Van Halen to The Motels to Steppenwolf. They recently played a sold out appearance at L.A.'s Canyon Club, sharing a bill with Blue Öyster Cult. Their last full-length album, "Bad Dream," was released in 1978 and is a treasured collector's item among rock connoisseurs, with asking prices up to $500 per copy on on-line auction sites. Bluebeard received widespread critical acclaim in the U.S. (from the likes of Billboard Magazine, Cash Box, BAM and Radio Report), and was an underground favorite in Japan and Europe.

The tragic death in 2004 of Robert Barry Leech, the band's original lead singer and creative force, led the remaining members to reunite in honor of his memory with a singular focus to once and for all bring their brand of rock & roll to the world. "Deluxe With Reverb" includes a tribute to the past via a rockin' duet of The Rolling Stone's classic "Paint It Black," between Leech and new frontman Ellington Erin.

"We intend to re-connect with Bluebeard's core audience worldwide and introduce them to new fans via this new album," said JP Fillet, Shelter From the Storm's vice president of label operations. "Judging from the reaction of the standing-room-only all ages audience at their recent Canyon Club show, Bluebeard's music has strong across-the-board appeal."
