Reunited '80s Rockers HARLOW To Play This Year's ROCKLAHOMA

'80s glam band HARLOW are back together after 15 years and are planning on releasing a new record, "Now and Then", in June on Retrospect Records.

Currently bassist-less, HARLOW has enlisted a few friends to lay down the bass tracks on the new record, including Steve Priest from THE SWEET and Jeff Pilson from DOKKEN, FOREIGNER and DIO. The band has also recruited Cherie Currie from THE RUNAWAYS and new artist Electra to do a few back-up vocals on the CD.

Mickey Kravitz (vocals), Hyland Church (guitar), Mike Rubyor (drums), Matt Cascio (guitar) were signed to Greenworld Records in 1986 and released the album "We Do What We Wanna Do" and the single "Rock the Box". Retrospect will reissue the first record along with five to six new songs.

In 2005 Cleopatra Records re-released the single "Rock the Box" on the box set "Hollywood Rocks" along with other '80s rockers POISON, L.A. GUNS, FASTER PUSSYCAT and GREAT WHITE.

HARLOW will perform at this year's Rocklahoma, which will be held July 10-13, 2008 at the Catch The Fever Festival Grounds, four miles north of Pryor, Oklahoma. The group is planing a contest on a Kansas City, Missouri radio station to fill the bass player spot. Winner of the contest will join HARLOW and play Rocklahoma and any other shows that come up.
