Official Press Release for the new live album from Million Dollar Reload. An “NI Rocks Recommends” will of course follow shortly!!

“Northern Ireland rockers Million Dollar Reload release their third album, As Real As It Gets, on December 10th.

M$R’s two previous releases - Anthems Of A Degeneration (Powerage Records 2010) and A Sinners Saint (Frontiers Records,2012) - received widespread acclaim for their ferocious approach to the classic rock style.  This release, though, is, unexpectedly, a live album, recorded at the Diamond Rock Club in Northern Ireland.



Singer Phil Conalane explains:  “It all started at a late night drinking session after a show we’d done in Paris. Shooting the breeze and telling lies to each other in the hotel bar led to reminiscing about great live rock albums and recordings - Alice Cooper’s live albums, Kiss, Maiden, the GNR bootleg at The Marquee amongst others.  Alcohol fuelled bravado dictated that we should do one too!  Ha ha!”

Guitarist BAM continues:  “It was really more for ourselves that we wanted to try and do it. Live albums sound great on vinyl, so we knew straight off the bat we had to put it out on vinyl too.  We are chuffed with the results:  it’s got all the ingredients we wanted – a small rock club that barely holds a few hundred fans , five guys rocking their asses off onstage , loud guitars and even louder crazy rock fans… and absolutely no backing tracks!!  Too many so called ‘rock’ bands are destroying their integrity and the rock n roll ethos with that crap these days!  This is a raw, warts and all record….it’s as real as it gets! It captures an M$R rock gig perfectly.”

Guitarist Andy Mack adds:  “We are right in the middle of demoing songs for our next studio album , so this release comes at the perfect time for us.   It’s kinda like a `bridger` before the next album is done next year.”

As Real As It Gets will be a special limited edition on a gatefold double vinyl release, with the ‘traditional’  digipack CD also available.

This release is available exclusively via the M$R website, and Million Dollar Reload Official on Facebook.
