After a gestation period that would have had an Elephant screaming for the induction stirrups, UK rockers Stevie R. Pearce and the Hooligans have announced the release date for their long-awaited sophomore album, Major League Son of a Bitch, which will finally come out on August 28th via Heavy Rocka/Cargo Records. The album sees the introduction of Carl Donoghue and Lance Skybaby to the all new thirteen track offering.
Having sat on the Hooligans’ second album for over a year, rescheduling twice, Pearce and company are happy that the release date has been announced as August 28th to co-incide with the Bands’ debut performance at Hard Rock Hell Sleaze in Sheffield. A short Teaser video of the album has also been released showcasing the new material on the Album. It will be released on all the usual digital platforms, CD and Vinyl- which will follow on after the release date due to delays in the Vinyl manufacturing industry.
Pearce says of the new album: “I really wanted to go a lot further sonically, vocally and with intent with album two – as a group. You are only as good as your last album which was ages ago now – and mine was very well received but I’m not complacent and i’m not worried to throw some curveballs… and I think too many seem to be playing it safe… so I’ve doubled the bite for Major League… It’s not nicey nicey rock by numbers which I’m seeing a lot of at the moment… it’s eclectic… it’s also all true… no fictional stories! I have light and dark and I’ve some surprises on it that people probably won’t know what to do with. Dave Draper (who produced the album – Ed) has also put his heart and soul into this record.. so I’m already winning”.
