hydrogynHot news for fans of Global Music/DR2 faves Hydrogyn – the band fronted by rock diva Julie Westlake will play Newcastle next month as part of a five-date UK tour.

Hot on the heels of 2008 debut UK album Deadly Passions, the Kentucky crew will headline a gig at Legends on April 25 with Rise To Addiction in tow. The quintet are touring their home country now and are expected back in Britain later this year.

Signed to the DR2 imprint of Tyneside label Global Music – home to Twisted Sister, W.A.S.P., Therapy? and The Sound Ex – in 2007 plans are in place to break the UK and Europe in a big way this year. Expect an interview with Hydrogyn’s feisty frontwoman here soon.
