This week sees the welcome return of rushonrock faves Dear Superstar – we’ve followed these Brit rock dudes for a few years now and the DR2-signed band hit the road with New Device in May.

We’ll be giving you the lowdown on frontman Micky Satiar (pictured right) and his buddies later this week and we advise you to check out one of the hottest tickets of the summer!

If you like your rock hard and classic then we’re bringing you an exclusive interview with Y&T‘s Dave Meniketti in the week the excellent Facemelter record hits stores.

And we go behind the scenes with Europe’s John Norum – the latest member of the chart-topping band to get the rushonrock Rider treatment as he prepares to release new solo album Play Yard Blues. And we take a look at the new six-CD Thunder live box set!

We check out Alkaline Trio on their current tour and hope to bring you the latest on Trigger The Bloodshed‘s UK jaunt and prog masters Pendragon. Plus we bring you news from comeback king Dan Reed as the funk rock master hits the road. And there’s more! There’s another look at a choice 12 inch cut in the 12@12 series with Manic Street Preachers taking their rushonrock bow. There’s new blogs from Self Made Man and Rock O’ The North plus latest reviews of new albums by the likes of FM, H.E.A.T. and Nevermore.
