Marco Sfogli, Tom Englund,Libor Kukula: Out Of Knowhere

We are proud to announce two foreign guests to be part of our new album "Out Of Knowhere". "We first wanted one guitarist to play guest solo but later we decided to compose duet and started searching for vocalist" says singer Ivan Jakubo. First singer who replied that he likes our music and is willing to contribute was Tom Englund from swedish group Evergrey. Evergrey was tracking new album at the same time so vocals into our song arrived really quickly.


Second guest is italian guitar virtuoso Marco Sfogli known from Dream Theater's James LaBrie and Jordan Rudess solo albums. "He is one of most amazing guitarists on the world and solo he recorded is awesome" adds Libor Kukula.


Both guests will appear in song titled Saboteur's trial which will be released on February 23rd through band internet profiles and 12 radio stations in Czech Republic.

Second single of new CD "Out Of Knowhere" featuring guest solo by Marco Sfogli of James LaBrie's solo projects and guest voice by Thomas S. Englund of Evergrey

News: music piracy costs US economy 71,060 jobs

As set forth in this report, the U.S. sound recording industries are now sustaining approximately $5.33 billion in losses as a result of global and U.S. piracy. In addition, U.S. retailers are losing another $1.04 billion. These estimates suggest total “direct” losses to all U.S. industries from music piracy that exceed $6.37 billion.

These direct losses then cascade through the rest of the U.S. economy and the losses of economic output, jobs and employee earnings “multiply.”

Based on the analyses set forth in this paper, because of music piracy, the U.S. economy loses a total of $12.5 billion in economic output each year.

Furthermore, the U.S. economy also loses 71,060 jobs. Of this amount, 46,114 jobs are lost at the U.S. production level for sound recordings while 24,946 jobs are lost at the U.S. retail level.

Because of global piracy in recorded music U.S. employees lose $2.7 billion in total earnings annually. Of this total, $2.0 billion is lost at the U.S. production level while $700 million is lost at the U.S. retail level.

Finally, as a consequence of piracy in sound recordings, U.S. federal, state and local governments lose a minimum of $ 422 million in tax revenues annually. Of this amount, $291 million represents lost personal income taxes while $131 million is lost corporate income and production taxes. full report

News: Eastwood Guitars new model announced

Eastwood Guitars introduces the new AIRLINE TUX DELUXE
After many months of collaboration between Eastwood Guitars and Randy Bachman (Bachman & Turner, The Guess Who, BTO), the new AIRLINE Tux Deluxe is ready for release.

The AIRLINE Tuxedo has been one of Eastwood’s top-selling models many years. And as a TUXEDO player and fan of the AIRLINE brand, Randy Bachman contacted Eastwood Guitars to share his ideas. The new Airline Tux Deluxe captures that exotic sixties vibe that Randy was aiming for, with multi-ply binding, flamed maple top and back with unique black sides. Technical changes include a Zero-Fret, upgraded tail-piece and custom coil-tapped pickups, giving the player a choice of 70% or 100% of the P-90 output levels. Deluxe AIRLINE hardshell case is included.
"It really is a pleasure to work with Randy, he is extremely knowledgeable about vintage instruments," said Mike Robinson, President and founder of Eastwood Guitars, "with over 40 years of professional experience and a vintage collection that spans that career, he is hard to beat. When it came time to name the new model, Randy said, “TUX DELUXE” without a second thought. I just love that name!"
The AIRLINE TUX DELUXE will start shipping in early March 2011, to find your closest dealer visit
