In a not-to-be-missed event, The Angels launch their powerhouse new album Take It To The Streets in a special live show at Norwood Live on Wednesday, September 19th, where they will combine the best of the new songs with their biggest hits, and a few surprises for long-time Angels fans.

In 2011, The Angels welcomed Dave Gleeson of The Screaming Jets as their new singer, with acclaimed drummer Nick Norton also joining founding members John and Rick Brewster and Chris Bailey in the supercharged new line-up after Doc Neeson left the band to embark on a solo career.

The Angels with Dave Gleeson immediately headed for Albert Studios and recorded a new EP and hit the road. But the new songs continued to flow, and they returned to the studio in between sold-out shows around Australia.

Says rhythm guitarist John Brewster, "Every time we went into the studio we finished a new song, some days we got two songs down, and the start of another, so we kept going."

The live launch of Take It To The Streets will showcase the snappy ballads, rampaging rock and dark groove jaunting of The Angels new album, which raises the question: do The Angels ever get nervous debuting new songs for their fans?

"We finished every show of the last tour with a new song, 'Waiting For The Sun'," says John Brewster, "and every night it got one of the biggest audience reactions of the whole show. We think new songs like 'Some Kind Of Hell', 'Getting Free', 'To The Streets' and 'Life Gets Better' will get a great live reaction, too."

There’s also a guitar-drenched version of Elvis Costello’s 'Pump It Up' the band has been itching to play live for most of the year.

"Angels fans have always been open to our new songs," says Brewster. "They’re always interested to hear what we’ve been working on. 'Marseille', 'I Ain’t The One', 'Long Line', 'Mr Damage', they were all new songs once, too, and now they’re a part of every show we play.

"But as much as we love our new album, live is where these songs will prove themselves in front of our fans. We can’t wait to hear what they think."
