Meet the true children of rock, the last testifiers of the revolution, the new rajahs of rock. Ladies and gentlemen: The Sore Losers. These balsy Belgians shake the chops of Zeppelin with the attitude of the Ramones, taking over Europe by Blitzkrieg. Armed with their third album SKYDOGS (produced by Dave Cobb) they’re coming your way to play their short, energetic songs for you and your friends to have a good time rock ‘n roll. All the time.
