(Los Angeles, CA – 12 October 2011) Metal Blade Recording Artists DC4 have been invited to participate in the first annual Monsters Of Rock cruise from February 25 – 28, 2012. Named after the legendary hard rock festival held at Donington Raceway near Birmingham, England, this time the Monsters Of Rock will wreak havoc on the high seas from Ft. Lauderdale, FL to Nassau, Bahamas and (hopefully!) back again.
Along with DC4, the legendary Hollywood hellraisers, Odin, (featuring Jeff and Shawn Duncan from DC4) have been added to the bill, capping off a stellar year of return performances for the band, which formed in 1983. On both bands being asked to take part in the festivities, drummer Shawn Duncan says, “It’s an honour for DC4 to be recognized and included on this bill as we support our new album, ‘Electric Ministry.’ And, as for Odin, does this mean we’ve finally ‘made it?,'” he asks. “I mean, it’s not that million dollar cheque I was counting on but this sure ain’t bad, either!”
Both bands join Cinderella, Tesla, Kix, Keel, Stryper, Lynch Mob, UFO, Y&T, Firehouse, Black N’ Blue, Faster Pussycat, Bang Tango, XYZ, Mr. Big’s Eric Martin, John Corabi of The Scream and Motley Crue, Helix, Rhino Bucket and Night Ranger on the three day trip.
