The past five decades have been a prolific time for iconic Australian rock band The Angels. They've released more than ten studio albums, toured consistently since their inception in 1974, published a biography titled "The Angels" (penned by Rob Yates) and were inducted into the ARIA Hall of Fame in 1998.
Forming in Adelaide in the 1970s, the early formation of the Angels went under the guise of 'The Moonshine Jug and String Band", which featured Rick and John Brewster and their pal, Doc Neeson. This evolved into the 'Keystone Angels' and eventually 'The Angels', who signed a record deal with AC/DC's label Alberts, and as they say, the rest is history. The band, which now features Dave Gleeson on vocals, Nick Norton on drums, Sam Brewster on bass and John and rock on guitars, still perform to packed houses around the country.
The Angels' first single 'Am I Ever Gonna See Your Face Again' was released in April 1976 and has become an all-time classic. It was followed by 'Take a Long Line', which became an instant success on the commercial charts. They made their TV debut on national pop music show, 'Countdown' and in 2010 their second album 'Face to Face' was listed in the the book, '100 Best Australian Albums'.
The Angels are easily one of Australia's most iconic rock bands. With an extensive back catalogue featuring hits such as 'After the Rain, Shadow Boxer, Take A Long Line, Marseilles, Comin' Down on Me, No Secrets and Dogs Are Talking' to name a few. The bands tracks are a high rotation staple on radio stations and have provided the soundtrack to generations of Australians.
Apart from publishing a biography and touring non-stop across the country, The Angels have also spent 2017 promoting their latest album 'Brothers, Angels & Demons' a 36-song collection of carefully curated songs following their history from the earliest beginnings to the present. 2018 is gearing up to be another blockbuster year for the boys, marking 40 years since the release of the bands ground breaking multi-platinum album 'Face to Face'.
The Angels just keep on rocking harder each year and its no surprise to find that their lie shows are now packed with fans of all ages. There's no slowing this band down - they just keep rockin'.
