For Immediate Release:

New Orleans Rock Champions LILLIAN AXE Return With Double-Live Album & Tour Dates!

'Live 2002' Scheduled For August 20th Release Through Red And Gold International

Having spent much of the past 7 years on hiatus and working in side bands, New Orleans heroes LILLIAN AXE are primed to make a grand return to form with their first-ever live album 'Live 2002', slated for release through Red And Gold International on August 20th. Various tour dates are being planned for late July through August.

LILLIAN AXE currently consists of founding members Steve Blaze (guitar) and Ron Taylor (vocals), with bassist Darrin DeLatte, guitarist Sam Poitevent and drummer Ken Koudelka. The new double-live album, 'Live 2002', was recorded in Houston, TX in May of this year. The release celebrates the 20th anniversary of one of hard rock's most gifted yet underrated talents. 'Live 2002' explores deep into the music that has given LILLIAN AXE its signature sound and made the band an underground favorite worldwide.

Formed in the mid-80s by classical-guitar trained Steve Blaze and vocalist Ron Taylor; LILLIAN AXE perfected an infectious style of harmony-saturated hard rock that spawned extensive radio & MTV support, numerous world tours and 4 studio albums, including a self-titled debut produced by the late Ratt guitarist Robbin Crosby (featuring the video & radio hit "Dream Of A Lifetime") and two extremely successful efforts (1992's 'Poetic Justice' - which reached the Billboard Top 100 and bore 2 hit singles: "True Believer" and "No Matter What", and 1993's 'Psychoschizophrenia' - which featured drummer Tommy Stewart, who went to join Godsmack) with legendary Led Zeppelin producer Leif Mases.

The late 90s saw LILLIAN AXE on hiatus with side bands (Near Life Experience and The Bridge) as well as building families, but the road came calling, and the band regrouped to tour through 1999-2000.

There is great cause for the band to celebrate. 2002 not only brings 'Live 2002', a testimonial of fine craftsmanship, but also more touring, as LILLIAN AXE is confirmed to perform dates with Cinderella and Judas Priest respectively. 2 CD release parties are also being coordinated in Texas (one of which will be at the very location where the album was recorded - 19th Hole in Houston)!

Dates include:
Tuesday, July 23rd Dallas, TX Canyon Club (with Cinderella)
Wednesday, July 24th New Orleans, LA House Of Blues (with Cinderella)
Thursday, August 1st Houston, TX Verizon Wireless Theatre (with
Judas Priest)
Friday, August 23rd Dallas, TX Galaxy Club
Saturday, August 24th Houston, TX 19th Hole
Saturday, September 21st Baton Rouge, LA Richoux
Sunday, September 22nd Jackson, MS The Dock

More dates announced soon. For further news and updates, click to

I'm surprised the bio doesn't mention Love and War, which in my opinion was the best CD they did. I thought Show a Little Love had the potential to be as big as any of the Def Leppard singles. Definitely one of the really under-rated hair bands.

Fields Of Yesterday is killer,trust me. It's their heaviest. "Become A Monster" and "Pulling The Rats Out" f'n destroy.

The best disc to get would be "Out of the Darkness Into the Light" a best of compilation. It's pretty hard to find, but a great selection of songs from their catalog. A very underrated band!!
