PRE-ORDER THE NEW CD/ALBUM HERE:

 

EMP Outlaw, the southern-style hard rock branch of David Ellefson’s EMP Label Group, will release FIGHT LIKE A BAND, the new album from Ron Keel Band, on March 1st. Featuring 11 new songs like the title track and the first single “Girls Like Me,” plus brand-new versions of “Tears Of Fire” and other Keel classics, it is available to pre-order on CD and vinyl at http://fightlikeaband.com.

Ron Keel compares the album to “a great action movie – a couple of car chases, some barroom brawls, a couple of love scenes and a lot of loud music.”

A lyric video for the lead track “Road Ready” makes its world premiere at http://emplabelgroup.com as the band prepares for a busy touring schedule this year. First up is the official Album Release Party Saturday, February 23rd at Grand Falls Casino (http://grandfallscasinoresort.com) in Larchwood, Iowa – just across the border from the band’s home base of Sioux Falls, South Dakota. RKB will play the new songs live for the first time, performing the FIGHT LIKE A BAND album in its entirety plus the Keel hits and songs from Ron’s EMP release METAL COWBOY: RELOADED.

Another major highlight of 2019 will be KEELFest, May 10th  in Columbus, Ohio - a two-and-a-half-hour show featuring the classic Keel lineup of Marc Ferrari, Bryan Jay, and Dwain Miller, a full set from the Ron Keel Band (DC Cothern, Geno Arce, The Rev and Dakota Scott) and a special segment paying tribute to legendary 80’s Hollywood metal band Steeler. Bassist Rik Fox, who played on the historic Steeler album, will join Ron Keel and renowned guitar hero Mitch Perry, who took Yngwie Malmsteen’s place in the band in 1983. Perry, now with glam-rock legends The Sweet, has also toured and recorded with  MSG, Cher, Johnny Winter, Lita Ford and many others; he also made a guest appearance on Keel’s 1986 album “The Final Frontier” and has been a member of the Steeler/Keel family for 35 years.

KEELFest: Columbus 2019 will take place at the Alrosa Villa and is being promoted by Tong Productions.

“It’s a great way to keep the Keel reunion going while promoting the new Ron Keel Band album,” Ron said. “And the Steeler segment is really special because that’s a piece of metal history, and I think the fans will be excited to see Rik, Mitch and I playing those songs on stage again for the first time in 35 years. It’s gonna be a long night, the show is almost three hours…and then one hell of a party when it’s over.”
