Summer festivals 2015
The bookings for this year's summer festivals have started to roll in. The first three are Fishbait on Åland, Sommarrock in Svedala and Peace & Love in Borlänge. More to come!
Chips producing Mike Monroe
Finland's most highly acclaimed rock star Michael Monroe has renewed his recording contract with Universal Music/Spinefarm Records and the band has started work on a new album to be released in autumn 2015.
Once again it’s time for a new Michael Monroe album! We are happy to have recently renewed our deal with Universal Music / Spinefarm and have written a bunch of new songs for the album over the past couple of months. The album is being produced by Swedish producer Chips Kiesbye (Hellacopters, Sator, Nomads) and we started recording it at the end of February in Gothenburg, Sweden. We’re all really excited about the new project. This is guaranteed to become another brilliant new Michael Monroe album!Michael Monroe
The album recordings will continue until mid-March & the first single from the upcoming album will be released in spring. Michael Monroe’s previous album Horns And Halos, released in 2013, was certified gold in Finland.

There might be one or two last minute additions as well. You never know! But first, we're (the complete Sator) heading for the UK for a gig at The Pipeline together with The Nomads on October 11th. Hope to see you!

Sator på akustisk turné
Tre femtedelar av de svenska rocklegendarerna SATOR ger sig ut på en ”relativt akustisk turné”. Trion bestående av Chips Kiesbye, Kent Norberg och Heikki Kiviaho kommer att ge så väl publik som sig själva en – med SATOR-ögon sett – annorlunda kväll.
Vi kommer naturligtvis att spela det bästa vi har men även några av de mer obskyra ädelstenarna. En och annan noggrant utvald cover kommer också att brännas av. Det man med säkerhet kan säga är att det kommer bli bra, nära, på riktigt och oberäkneligt. Med oss tre på scen med så här pass fria musikaliska tyglar kan i alla fall inte jag riktigt säga var det kan sluta.Kent Norberg
