British rockers UFO are kicking off the West Coast leg of their North American tour today in Santa Rosa, CA.   The band is touring North America in support of their greatest hits collection "Best of a Decade" which is out now on SPV/Steamhammer.  UFO is also in the process of working on a new studio album which is scheduled for release in early 2012.


Drummer Andy Parker commented on the start of the tour and the recording process of their new studio album:


"I recorded fifteen drum tracks while I was in Germany, not sure which ones will make the final cut. Basses are done; Vinnie and Phil start work when we get back. I am really looking forward to playing these next shows. The West Coast has always been great for us, plus Reno, Vegas, Tempe, Tucson and finishing up in Texas means I get to ride the tour bus home, couldn't be better!!   Will we be seeing you?"


True rock legends such as UFO are characterized not only by the fact that they have added several classic anthems to the annals of rock history, but that their musical output, after many years, still remains at such a consistently high level and they  always have something new and fresh coming up.  With classic albums such as "Phenomenon", "Force it" and "No Heavy Pettin" Phil Mogg, Vinnie Moore, Andy Parker and Paul Raymond still sound vital and imaginative to this day. 


Providing direct support on the tour with be Brazilian rockers MINDFLOW.  Their latest release "With Bare Hands" is available now on Nightmare Records.  Heavy metal, hard rock, modern rock...try to put MINDFLOW's music into a category and you either don't know where to stop or you can't find the words.  It's all there - the compelling energy of the rhythm section - drums and bass pounding relentless power.
