Waysted Won't Perform At Next Year's Z Rock Fest

WAYSTED, the reunited mid-'80s British heavy metal outfit led by UFO bassist Pete Way (hence the spelling of the group's name), has issued the following statement:

"After yesterday's announcement by Z Records that WAYSTED would be appearing at next year's Z Rock [festival], WAYSTED management would like to set the record straight that the announcement, even though it may have been made in good faith, was premature — and that WAYSTED will not be appearing at Z Rock next April. This was one of a run of shows which were pencilled in but never confirmed by the band, due to other commitments which were also in the pipeline for around the same time.

"WAYSTED will be touring in 2008 in support of their new album, 'The Harsh Reality', the dates of which will follow soon, but please note that until the shows are listed on tour dates page of the WAYSTED website, they are not to be taken as conclusive."

WAYSTED released its new album, "The Harsh Reality", on October 29 via U.K.'s Livewire Records. The CD featured the band's "classic" lineup of Pete Way, Fin (vocals), Chris George (guitar) and Paul Haslin (drums).

Waysted Cover Aerosmith

WAYSTED, the reunited semi-obscure mid-'80s British heavy metal outfit led by UFO bassist Pete Way (hence the spelling of the group's name), has set "The Harsh Reality" as the title of its new album, due in October via U.K.'s Livewire Records. The CD will feature the band's "classic" lineup of Pete Way, Fin (vocals), Chris George (guitar) and Paul Haslin (drums). Also in the works is WAYSTED's cover version of AEROSMITH's "Sweet Emotion", which was recently recorded for inclusion on the cover-mount CD (featuring a compilation of rock songs from the movies) that will be given away for free with next month's Classic Rock magazine.

Says Fin: "Yes troops, the recording is all going better than planned. Six songs are already in the can, done and dusted. We did have to break off the recording process to let Fredster [the record producer] mix 'Sweet Emotion'... We are more than pleased that we chose the 'SMITH song as there is a bit of history to it, me dismissing them in my youth as some 'Mick 'n' Keef wannabees' until I met Pete [Way] in 1983, who turned me on to them and I've loved them ever since, and I think we have done it justice ... We return to Geordieland next week to put finishing touches [to 'The Harsh Reality']."

Adds Chris George: "First thing we're having a meeting with Cargo/Livewire in London, next thing we've written a whole album's worth of material and now we're almost done. As Fin said, [there are] just a few vocals to finish up. In my opinion it's one of the best recordings I've been involved with. There's some amazing songs on there, even if I do say so myself!"

WAYSTED's latest CD, "Back from the Dead", was issued in 2005 via Majestic Rock Records.
