The Boys would like to thank all of our Facebook friends, followers and
fans for your tremendous support, as always, over the past twelve months.
2014 was an exciting year for us, particularly with the release of "Punk
Rock Menopause", our first brand new album in over 33 years. It was
extremely pleasing for us that both critics and fans alike loved the album so much
with the CD selling out in August and the vinyl in November. We recorded
our first promo video since 1980 with "I'm A Believer" and the response has
once again been phenominal
We played two long tours of Germany, the first time we have played so many
back to back dates since 1981 as well as dates in the UK, USA &
Scandinavia. It was extremely pleasing to see so many fans in both the UK and Germany
singing along to the new songs like they were old favourites. It was also
very enjoyable to return to the US to play only our fourth show ever and
what a night it turned out to be in a sell out Chicago. It was a pleasure to
be joined onstage once again by Andrew Matheson in the UK and Norway.
2015 promises to be just as exciting with The Boys first ever visit to
China playing a nine date tour followed in March by our first time in Finland
with three dates and of course Rebellion coming up in August and even more
world-wide live dates to be announced. We have just recorded another promo
video of "Punk Rock Girl" to be released in February alongside a Special
Edition Picture Disc release for "Punk Rock Menopause".
All this would not be possible without all of you, thank you so much.
We wish you a very Merry Xmas & wonderful New Year!
CASINO STEEL, MATT DANGERFIELD & HONEST JOHN PLAIN

Release 3rd June 2013
C'est La Vie:
I went into the recording studio 21 December 2012 in Trondheim with Honest John Plain and Chuck Berry keyboardist Daniel Rossing. It is the same studio in Trondheim where The Boys recorded "To Hell With The Boys". The producer of the session was Bjorn Nessjoe who also produced that Boys album.

A magazine with a 19-track CD was released 13th September 2012, titled "Past The Point Of No Return - 40 Years On The Road With Casino Steel". There was also a digital release "60" in October 2012 of 60 Casino Steel-songs. Both albums available on the Internet.
Tom Kristensen will be publishing a book on Holton/Steel, which will probably also include a copy of the Holton/Steel Anthology. Due for late spring 2014.
