Koch Records Signs Hard Rock Act Circus Diablo

United States
Band Features Past and Present Members of The Cult, Fuel, The Almighty and Camp Freddy

NEW YORK, NY, May 8, 2007 — KOCH Records’ first signing for its new metal division is the Los Angeles-based hard rock outfit, Circus Diablo. The band features members past and present from The Cult, Fuel, The Almighty and Camp Freddy. The self-titled debut album will be released on July 3rd, 2007 and features the single, “Loaded.”

Circus Diablo is Billy Morrison (vocals), Billy Duffy (lead guitar), Ricky Warwick (guitar), and Brett Scallions (bass), with Charles Ruggiero of Slunt beating the skins live, while Velvet Revolver’s Matt Sorum performed all the drum tracks on the album, courtesy of RCA Records.

“KOCH got this because they got this,” remarked front man Morrison, “and we couldn’t be at a better place.” Morrison, the founder of the legendary, mega-star studded, Hollywood-based cover band Camp Freddy, continues, “I will not be pining for some lost love while I hover over a piano, not even close. Rock exists below the belt and we intend to deliver rock the way it was meant to be: hard, fast, and dirty.”

The band hits the road this summer in support of their debut album, with touring plans continuing through 2008. You can catch Circus Diablo at Ozzfest, and at press time the band has confirmed a co-headlining tour with Nick (Queens Of The Stone Age) Oliveri’s Mondo Generator.
