Guitarist Jeff Westlake stated, "our first European tour was a phenomenal success for the band and we are currently in preparations to head out before the end of the year on a much more extensive European tour. A big thanks to all of the UK and French rock fans who made this trip for us an unforgetable experience."
On the musical side of the house, Hydrogyn will be releasing their first ever in concert digital only release titled Live Explosion. recorded without overdubs on September 1st, 2006 at the Sternwheel Regatta show in Charleston, West Virginia, which featured QUIET RIOT, WARRANT and Hydrogyn. The band was able to fully capture their performance featuring all of their incendiary rock songs from their Bombshell CD before an enthusiastic crowd. Live Explosion will be available via digital distribution only in the US starting in July 2007.
Hydrogyn will also be releasing a multi-format video CD, which will feature footage from the Sternwheel Regatta show in Charleston, West Virginia; the entire Pay Per view show from the Strip 'Em Blind US tour; the UK/French Sex N' Sin tour to include acoustic performances; the original videos for 'The Sand' and 'Breaking Me Down' from the Best Serverd With Volume (out of print CD) and behind the scene footage of the band in the studio; at band practice and on tour. The video CD will be available via their official website (www.hydrogyn.com) in summer 2007.
The band is currently in song writing mode and in rehearsals for the upcoming recording of their 3rd as of yet untitled CD. According to guitarist Jeff Westlake, "The writing process is going great with an incredible new energized vibe to the music. We have four songs fully recorded and completed and will be heading back into the studio in Nashville with legendary producer Michael Wagener (METALLICA, OZZY OSBOURNE, SKID ROW) during August 2007 to record a 5th song. We will then be back in the studio in October 2007, to finish recording the rest of the songs on what will be the band's new monster CD."
Currently the band is finalizing dates for their upcoming fall 2007 tour to hopefully be including Destroy All Records Entertainment labelmates CAGE.
