Bravewords post:
SPV / Steamhammer reports UFO brand-new studio album, The Visitor, is due out before the end of spring. The arrival of the album has been set for late May/early June, tour dates will be announced soon.

The current line-up continues to consist of the three original members, Phil Mogg (vocals), Paul Raymond (guitar, keyboards), and Andy Parker (drums), as well as American world-class guitarist Vinnie Moore. Bass legend and original member Pete Way is currently suffering from a liver disease and was unfortunately not available for the studio production.

The Visitor sees the band benefiting especially from their collaboration with Vinnie Moore, who joined UFO in autumn 2003 and has made an excellent impression on the albums, You Are Here (2004) and The Monkey Puzzle (2006), and on the band’s tours.

Mogg: “Without running down previous UFO lineups - it’s been a long time since we had a team as strong as this one. Vinnie contributes his youthful energy and amazing guitar technique, and in Andy’s return we’ve seen the reappearance of a musician who has always been very important to the band’s original sound.”

Release Dates for The Visitor on Steamhammer / SPV:

Germany / Austria / Switzerland: May 29th
UK / rest of Europe: June 2nd
USA / Canada: June 2nd
