It’s been a long time coming but Memphis blues rockers Tora Tora are officially back! The first single from the upcoming Bastards of Beale album, ‘Rose of Jericho’ is now out.

It’s also not unusual to find members of bands mingling with rock fans and watching their…

We return with the latest installment of our Albums Unleashed series and this one is Wild! Aaron and Chris return this week along with special guest Anthony Corder to discuss the fantastic 1992 A&M Records release of Tora Tora’s Wild America. This album hit the shelves amidst a tidal wave of grunge music that was taking over the airwaves. The musical climate at the time relegated it to a slot just outside the Billboard Top…
