VH1 Classics to Release Supergroup Album, featuring Def Leppard, Sex Pistols and Girl Members

NEW YORK, NY - Man Raze, a newly formed rock outfit featuring Phil Collen of Def Leppard, Simon Laffy from Girl and Paul Cook of The Sex Pistols, have announced the release of their full-length album "Surreal" via VH1 Classic Records.

Mixing the raw energy of the Pistols mixed with the immaculate pop rock of Def Leppard, Man Raze is a unique clash of 70's simplicity with 80's excess, punk clubs with stadium rock. Whether it's the punk vibrancy of "Turn It Up", the beautiful rock craftsmanship of "Every Second Of Every Day" or the reggae-soaked dub mix of "Runnin' Me Up", Surreal is an album that continuously pumps out the rock hits that these three members are most notorious for. Recently, Man Raze filmed a private show in Los Angeles that will premiere on VH1 that will premiere later this year. The band plans to launch a U.S. tour in 2008.

"The fun part about Man Raze is that musically we can go off in any direction from rock to alternative the next," said Phil Collen. "We are looking forward to playing live this fall."

Before joining Def Leppard, London born Phil Collen played in Girl, who were one of the great unsung UK rock acts of the early 80's (singer Phil Lewis would later front LA Guns - who were at the vanguard of the LA sleaze rock scene that eventually produced Guns N Roses). While Collen went on to join Def Leppard he maintained a strong friendship with Simon Laffy, Girl's bassist. Reconnecting in 2004, and joined by Sex Pistols drummer Paul Cook, Man Raze was born. Eschewing their illustrious past, the band have spent the past two year getting back to basics, writing and recording - they also played a sold out show at London's Spitz Club and released a limited edition EP Skin Crawl in October 2005 on their own label, Surrealist Records in the UK.

I'm not so sure that this would qualify as a super group

I think they're really something great.  It is much more interesting than what Def Leppard is doing.  Much more of a punk edge and sometimes Phil even sounds a tiny bit like Joe

Sounds ok.  No idea why vh1 would sign a band like that.  do they plan on selling 10,000 records.  i can't imagine this going anywhere.  Stick to Def Leppard.  they at least probably make money on tour, cause they ain't selling records

You think that VH1 would have learned their lesson.

I am still pissed off at them for that Sebastian Bock shit.
