    STARQUAKE have signed a worldwide deal with PURE ROCK RECORDS, a sublabel of PURE STEEL RECORDS.


    STARQUAKE, that's the studio-project of multi-instrumentalist, singer, sound angineer and producer MIKEY, the Voice.
    Influenced by the greats of their respective genres Iron Maiden and Spock's Beard, the music settles with heavy guitars, huge drums and elaborate vocals. Spiced up with a good amount of Hammond organ and big arrangements the big picture is always harmonic and melody-oriented.
    With his guest-musicians (music-teachers and a musicologist), all of whom look back on long years of stage and studio experience, MIKEY, the Voice creates a sonic journey with STARQUAKE to the 1970s and 80s, still contemporary sounding.

    Band Statement:
    “After long hard work ist is finally done, “Times that Matter” is ready, and STARQUAKE are very happy to have found PURE ROCK RECORDS, a label that shares the musical visions of this project.”

    The release date of the new STARQUAKE album "Times That Matter" on CD is May 29th 2015. The preorder phase will start on May 15th 2015 in our webshop.

    STARQUAKE's music was influenced by IRON MAIDEN, SPOCKs BEARD and 70s Hard Rock and comprises heavy guitars, fat drums and sophisticated vocals. Seasoned with some Hammond Organ and great arrangements, "Times that matter" is always harmonic and favours songs and melody.
    Singer Mikey and his band STARQUAKE, after playing lots of live gigs, have now arranged this impressive journey through the 70s and 80s with the modern sound of today. They were joined by lots of guest musicians, who all have long-time experience on stage and in the studio.

    Famous English fantasy artist Rodney Matthews was so impressed that he decided to contribute the coverartwork for this album, which adds a perfect optical treat to the gourmet sound. Long anthems and catchy rock pieces in a quality like this are very very rare today!
