On June 3, Toronto hard rock quartet CRASH KELLY will release a brand new slab of that intoxicating blend of '70s-inspired glam rock 'n' roll, early '80s Sunset Strip strut and timeless power pop, "One More Heart Attack" (Opening Day/Universal Music).
The album features rock legends Gilby Clarke (who produced five of the ten tracks in Los Angeles), Rudy Sarzo (OZZY OSBOURNE, QUIET RIOT, WHITESNAKE), and Brian Tichy (FOREIGNER, BILLY IDOL), as well as songwriting contributions from PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS mainman Moe Berg.
In the five years since Toronto-based guitar-slinger Sean Kelly laid the first CRASH KELLY song down on his Tascam four-track recorder, he has taken his rock 'n' roll creation from the down and dirty clubs of Toronto to arenas, amphitheatres, and other major venues in North America and Europe. The albums "Penny Pills" and "Electric Satisfaction" (the latter produced by ex-GUNS N' ROSES/HEART axeman Gilby Clarke) were released worldwide through Liquor and Poker Music/Century Media and helped CRASH KELLY garner tours with ALICE COOPER, QUIREBOYS, BACKYARD BABIES and others, as well as support slots with MTLEY CRE, POISON, CINDERELLA, W.A.S.P. and many other hard rock heroes.
In late 2007, French rock label Bad Reputation released a compilation of the first two CK records and singles entitled "Love You Electric" for Europe only. The compilation has received rave reviews in the European press, including a half-page 8/10 review in Classic Rock magazine.
In order to bring his latest rock n roll vision to fruition in the live arena, Sean has assembled what he considers to be the best CRASH KELLY lineup to date. Longtime CK band mate Allister Thompson on bass, Gene Scarpelli on guitar, and Tim Timleck on drums also contribute stellar performances on "One More Heart Attack".
