We have an important announcement regarding our upcoming UK Tour
and a few
changes which have been made.
The first is to our show at Fibbers in York on Friday the 22nd of August:
Due to the unprofessional attitude of the original promoter (Martyn Rudd of
Screaming Tarts Presents) towards both artist and our agent, this show was
almost in jeopardy however, as we were determined not to lose it, we have
managed to secure the same date at the same venue through Mr Tim Hornsby of MRH
Presents who we are now happily working with. Our last time playing Fibbers was
in 2006 and we’re looking forward to seeing all our friends & fans in and
around York for a killer show once
Unfortunately, what was to be our final show of the tour at Tribal Nightclub in
Colchester on the 23rd of August has now been
moved, as we have just found out that the venue is closing down and sadly the
Arts Centre (where we played last time) was not available. For those who
purchased tickets for the Tribal show, refunds will be sent to you via Paypal.
Any questions, please contact: email@example.com
The GOOD NEWS is that we have managed to re-locate this show
to The Waterfront in Norwich which
is not far away and as an extra bonus, we will now be holding an after show /
end of tour party in the venue and in tandem with the Meltdown Club night that
runs until 3am. All show tickets will
guarantee free entry to the party and meet & greet with the band after our
We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused but
please know that behind the scenes we have all been working day and night (for
months) to ensure this tour will be the best it can be for both our band and
our fans. That being said, some problems were simply beyond our control.
We have also just confirmed a few new bands who will now be joining us and our

“My GJ2 guitars are so
awesome that I no longer want to play anything else. The rock-solid
tone, relentless sustain, singing clarity, and amazing feel of
instruments crafted with pride by the master (Grover Jackson) make them
the best guitars I’ve ever had the pleasure of playing. I’m proud to be a
part of the GJ2family.” – Mick Murphy
The new GJ2 Mick Murphy model is a stripped-down,
straight-ahead rock machine that looks and plays like a rocket. Made for
the “Master of Heaviosity” and bearing a likeness of his trademark =MM=
signature, it features a single humbucker with a hard-tail bridge,
making it ideal for high-octane, tuned-down riffing. The =MM= will be
offered in new colors exclusive to the model. The design is based on the
iconic collaboration between Grover Jackson and Randy Rhoads from the dawn of the ‘80s that became the original “RR” model (later evolving into the GJ2 Concorde, which first inspired Mick Murphy to take up the guitar.A longtime favorite in Mick’s guitar collection has been his vintage
1980s-era “RR” Jackson model made by Grover Jackson. Now he’s excited to
play this updated version—bearing his own initials—made using modern
production methods by the original designer himself.

Association of Music Merchants) convention during the Media Preview Day event
at the Anaheim Convention Center. Mick Murphy and GJ2co-founder Jon Gold presented the guitar on stage for the assembled press and Mick demonstrated it at the GJ2 booth. Check it out:

"There are not too many true guitar heroes around
these days but Mick Murphy is
one of the few. We love his work with My
Ruin and Chevy Metal and
we are really proud to have him playing our guitars."- Grover
Jackson | GJ2 Guitars
"There are a few reasons that we have
welcomed Mick into the GJ2 team. When you hear him play, the first reason is
obvious, he rocks! Then there is the simple fact that we like him. It is
refreshing to get the chance to work with someone who is totally committed to,
and passionate about his craft and yet is down to earth and easy to get on
with. He gives us great “real world” feedback about our guitars. We know that
our work together will be long term and mutually fruitful.” – Jon
Gold | GJ2 Guitars
"Even after the fevered buildup from friends about
this guitarist Mick Murphy, he still managed to wildly surpass expectations.
Mick blends a sense of rock musicality with precision, raw power, and
riveting showmanship. Prepare to be blown away."
-Mitch Devine | GJ2 Guitars
"I've seen &
heard Mick Murphy play the guitar, and seriously he's freaking incredible. It
makes perfect sense that he plays a GJ2. Dude shreds.” – Tom Dumont | No Doubt
In honor of today, here is a little teaser from our soon to be released hard cover book about the making of "The Sacred Mood".
Since we covered "Trouble" by Elvis on our new album, I wanted to
recreate a classic photograph from his infamous "68 Comeback Special" as
an art piece for our new book so I asked the talented Miss Kayleigh Brookes (who designed our album cover with me) to work her magic once again and together we came up with this red lipstick twist!
