Starwood Kick Off Tour In Hollywood & UK

Starwood fans are about to get the big "break" they deserve: the Metal Blade recording artists have confirmed they will begin a world tour for their label debut, "If It Aint Broke, Break It!" in their hometown - Hollywood, California - on November 15, sharing the bill at the House of Blues with the legendary UFO. The next day, Starwood is off to the U.K. for a series of dates with Vince Neil.

The tour announcement comes just as Starwood is shooting the first video from "If It Aint Broke, Break It!" According to vocalist/guitarist Lizzy, who produced the recording with band mate Joey Scott (drums & percussion/backing vocals), the song, "Subculture," is an invitation to those who will never be in the elite of society to join Starwood and others like them in the subculture of Hollywood.

The video mixes performance footage with scenes celebrating the Hollywood scene Starwood celebrates in their music. "Subculture" is just one of several tracks on "If It Aint Broke, Break It!" garnering nationwide airplay and favorable notices. Others include "All My Girlfriends Have Boyfriends," "Whats Your Damage" and "Backlash."

"A simply entertaining disc of high octane pop metal material... Starwood plays it like it is with songs that... kick you in the ass and might even get your head banging," states the Music Connection, adding: "This is an album for anyone who kneels before the Gods for the return of carefree arena rock." According to Metal Edge, Starwood "leans heavily to 70s era icons like KISS, Cheap Trick and New York Dolls, but they pummel forth in a very sleazier version of the above. The production is very raw yet polished in all the right spots making it a very strong rock record." Crave claims "If Aint Broke, Break It!" boasts "an impressive old school rock feel" and hopes Starwood is "the band that brings back those Hollywood rock bands that got swept away so many years ago," while Metal Invader comes right to the point: "simple 70s-style, goodtime RNR, glamy, sleazy and filthy as hell, catchy, full of simple hooks and driving rhythms with attitude that kicks ya in the face."

Lizzy says he chose to name the band after the famed 70s Hollywood club because the Starwood was where fans started seeing metal, but the venue continued to host shows by rock, pop and punk bands, all elements that can be heard in the bands music. Along with Lizzy and Joey Scott, Starwood features Marten Andersson on bass and backing vocals and Joe Steals on lead rhythm and slide guitars and backing vocals. Starwood is planning an extensive tour for the new year.
