Only four days after the release of his last LP Ordinary Man, original heavy metal icon Ozzy Osbourne was quick to announce he was heading straight back into the studio with producer Andrew Watt for what would become his new album Patient Number 9! Showing absolutely no fatigue despite age, illness and unparalleled years of substance abuse, Ozzy has succeeded in retaining the mantle of the Prince Of Darkness with a brilliantly dark and barmy record.
Summoning an all-star cast of collaborators; Patient Number 9 includes the truly epic title track which unites Ozzy with Red Hot Chilli Peppers drummer Chad Smith, Metallica bassist Robert Trujillo and the legendary guitarist Zakk Wylde.
The album also features contributions from such rock royalty as Eric Clapton, Guns N’ Roses bassist Duff McKagan, Jane’s Addiction’s Chris Chaney, Mike McCready from Pearl Jam and sees him once again reunite with Black Sabbath guitarist Tony Iommi!
Next year, Ozzy Osbourne joins up with none other than hard rockers Judas Priest for a double Brummy band bonanza! Grab tickets for No More Tours 2 with Gigantic right now!

When most bands come and go in a matter of months, it’s a testament to awesome Australian metalcore heroes Parkway Drive that they are still going nearly two decades later. Especially when they drop new album Darker Still which many are calling their best yet!
But it hasn’t been an easy ride for the Byron Bay boys, suffering the strain of broken relationships, creative exhaustion and the inevitable chaos of COVID. But somehow, they were able to channel these challenges, and Darker Still is all the greater for it.
“It’s a philosophical and slightly esoteric concept of a person reaching a point in their life where they’re confronted with an event that tears down and destroys everything about them in terms of their perception of self, where they stand in the world, their beliefs, everything… It’s all wiped away, way down to nothing. And then you have to walk through this journey, through the darkness to rediscover who you are, and where you stand in the world.” – Winston McCall
