Unfortunately Lady Starlight’s recent run of shows on the ‘Born This Way Ball’ tour with Lady Gaga has had to be cancelled.

Blitz Kids are back! They return with a brand new mini-album that’s set to rock the world.
Blitz Kids have been honing their sound and with an abundance of material from recent sessions have decided to release ‘Never Die‘ as a mini album this year and hold off the eagerly awaited sophomore album to keep us all drooling. With the full-length being recorded and produced by the one and only John Feldmann (The Used, Black Veil Brides, Story of the Year, All Time Low) the band’s decision to jet off to LA out rightly declares their music is worth its weight.
If Blitz Kids are new to you, here’s your chance to catch up. They hail from small towns but make big sounds and are “a schizophrenic force to be reckoned with” if you ask for Rock Sound’s opinion. The band have provided main support for D.R.U.G.S, opened a tour of the UK and Europe with Mayday Parade, had Aled Phillips from ‘Kids in Glass Houses’ perform guest vocals on their single ‘Story’ and to top it all off, they were also nominated as ‘Best British Newcomers’ at 2011′s Kerrang! Awards!
Get ready for a storm; Blitz Kids never die.
