What started as a reunion in 2013 with tours of Japan, Australia, and the UK, has continued and evolved into a full blown return in full force of the FLAMIN' GROOVIES. In the past two years the band has toured the USA extensively with repeated visits to New York, L.A. and their hometown of San Francisco, as well as recently returning from a hugely successful tour of Spain, France and Italy. In anticipation of their 50th Anniversary in 2016, they are now putting the finishing touches on a new album, a documentary film, and are about to drop a single this fall of their first new recordings in over thirty years. This new single features two Cyril Jordan/Chris Wilson penned tracks - the recently written "Crazy Macy" and the first track ever written by Jordan & Wilson, "Let Me Rock" recorded here for the first time! Burger Records will be releasing this single this fall in both cassette and digital formats, with a limited 7" vinyl pressing to follow.
The Cyril Jordan, Chris Wilson, George Alexander line-up featured on the three albums released by Sire Records, that rocked the UK, Europe and the US from 1971 - 1980 are BACK IN ACTION. With the addition of Victor Penalosa on drums, they continue to present their own unique and infectious style of rock n roll with such cult classics as "Shake Some Action," "Slow Death" and "Teenage Head."
