UNION Says "Thank You!"/Second Single Announced
Well, the guys are all home after two months of touring to support "The Blue Room" and wanted to send a special message out to all their fans. The guys are all very proud of their time on the road and think it made a big difference in spreading the word about UNION. The band recieved great support from radio stations across the country, making special appearences on numerous radio programs throughout the tour. And of course, the fans were incredible. UNION really appreciates all the fans who came out to show their love and support for the band during their tour, including the 5,000 enthusiastic fans who the band performed in front of at their last show at WXCM 97X's 22nd International BBQ Festival in Kentucky.
The next single off the album, "Who Do You Think You Are" is scheduled to officially be released to radio on July 10th, so now is the time to start gearing up for another big push to help get this song played - from New York to Los Angeles and everywhere in between! Stay tuned for the official "Show 'Em Who You Are!" UNION Radio Campaign and more details on how you can help in your area in the near future.
For now, Bruce, John, Brent and Jamie are enjoying some down time and taking the opportunity to catch up on personal matters before heading back out for their week of Scandinavian dates the first week of June. Plans for an additional round of touring in the states are still being looked into and fans should continue to check UNION Asylum for details (most likely late June) as they firm up. In the meantime, anyone who saw UNION on the road and has a review, photos, or other story you want to share please send them along for the band and all your fellow UNION fans to enjoy. Finally, as always, stay tuned to UNION Asylum for all the news and updates about the band as they become available! -- Unionasylum.com
Message From Bruce
Well everyone, there's a lot going on these days. Just returned from two months on the road with UNION to support our album "The Blue Room." It was a good tour and, as always, the fans were incredible. I'd like to personally thank everyone who came out to the shows and gave me and the band your love and support. Next up UNION has about a week of tour dates coming up in Scandinavia at the beginning of June, but I'm keeping busy in the meantime. First, as I mentioned at the NY/NJ KISS Expo I am beginning to put together a book which will chronicle my entire career. I am very proud of the work I have accomplished thoughout the years with people like Meatloaf, Billy Squire, Black Jack, Michael Bolton, Good Rats and, of course, KISS. The book will be a bio of my life and work throughout the entire course of my career, including special chapters devoted to my relationship with Eric Carr and what life on the road with KISS - and all the women! - is really like! Of course there will also be a lot of never before seen photos from my personal collection included too. The book's working title is "Honorable Discharge" and I will be working on it with Ken Gullic (of BootCamp) as time permits in the coming months. Stay tuned for more details! Second, I am also taking advantage of this break from touring with UNION to begin laying down some material for my solo album. My good friend Curt Cuomo will be helping out with the production of the as yet untitled album, and I plan to handle the vocals on the non-instrumental tracks myself. This solo album, something I've wanted to do for awhile, will feature music that is different from the stuff I'm doing with UNION, giving me a chance to really experiment and express myself on a truly individual level. It's still early in the recording process, so keep checking in here and I'll be sure to let everyone know how the album's progess is going.

Supporting its new album, "The Blue Room," Union plays Saturday at the Birch Hill Night Club in Old Bridge. "I just want to get a lot of people aware of us. ...

Bruce Kulick Working On A Book
Just returned to the real world after departing the surreal atmosphere of the 14th Annual NJ Kiss Expo here in NJ. Overall, the event lived up to its own time-tested standards, with dealers and attendees all having a good time of it all; The tables were filled with great stuff (I should have bought that '78 Peter single!) and the guests were cool (especially Bruce Kulick, who officially announced that he's working on a book during the interview I did with him!). I am happy to report that the Live Kiss Thought Vault was an unqualified success, far surpassing my expectations -- who would've thought that the bands' performing of "Heaven's on Fire" on the current tour would make for such debate fodder! Thanks to all who particpated and listened to the panel. Stay tuned for a report on the live Thought Vault later this week, sure to be written in total Thought Vault style! -- Ron Albanese
