MELODIC-ROCK BAND XYZ, IS BACK

"LETTER TO GOD" -- THE LONG AWAITED FOLLOW-UP ALBUM. SET TO RELEASE MAY 15TH ON MTM RECORDS

XYZ let's loose a power-driven rock record that bristles with genuine, raw emotions, on an unsuspecting public, with new their release Letter To God. This long-awaited album was produced by XYZ singer Terry Ilous, new XYZ guitar player, J.K. Northrup and mixed by Tom Fletcher (Scorpions, Yes & Toto). "It is great to be back, playing and writing," exclaims Terry Ilous. "The album will have 3 bonus tracks when purchased off our site." The album also features two remakes of previous XYZ hits "Inside Out" and "What Keeps Me Loving You."

XYZ was originally comprised of Terry Ilous on vocals, Marc Diglio on guitars, Patt Fontaine on bass and Paul Monroe on drums. During their four-year tenure as veterans of L.A.'s club wars, XYZ followed the familiar progression of recording and mailing demos to every ear they could catch. In early 1989 the band won the devotion of Enigma Records and earned their first accolades from Don Dokken, who was so taken with the band that he demanded to produce XYZ's debut.

They emerged from the studio with an auspicious debut, simply titled XYZ. XYZ immediately put their performing muscle to work on major national tours as the tour-mates of Ted Nugent in 1989. The young band's steadfast reputation spread and they were subsequently offered back-to-back tours with Alice Cooper, Steppenwolf and Enuff'z Nuff. They then graduated to their own headlining club tour, and continued to rewrite the XYZ's of rock 'n' roll.

Now, returning with something to say, XYZ proves that rock never stops. The new XYZ is made up of Terry Ilous (vocals), Paul Monroe (drums), Sean McNabb (bass, Great White, Quiet Riot) and J.K. Northrup (guitar, King Cobra, Paul Shortino). Drawing from the past and present, Terry Ilous and original guitarist Mark Diglio co-write several of the songs. The inspiration of this album is partly attributed to singer Terry Ilous' son. The song "Letter to God" was the last one they wrote for the CD, after the tragedy of Terry's son dying late last year.

Letter To God will be sold exclusively on www.xyzmusic.com (coming soon), www.terryilous.com or MTM's website www.mtm-music.de.
