TUFF will issue “What Comes Around Goes Around – Again” (RLS Records) in March 2012. The re-make of the bands Atlantic Records “What Comes Around Goes Around”, is spear headed by vocalist Stevie Rachelle and band founder Todd “Chase” Chaisson (Bass). The release marks a 25 year Anniversary for the band (1987-2012). Rachelle says: “I am super excited for fans to hear this, and we’ll be bringing more of a “live show” than anyone has seen from this group in over a decade!” The new disc includes popular tracks from the debut disc and a few that didn’t make it the first time. What Comes Around Goes Around the actual title track and a club favorite from the heyday Put Out Or Get Out are newly recorded for this.


TUFF will tour this summer including a return to the Annual “CRUEFEST”at the “Whisky-A-Go-Go” in Hollywood July 28th 2012. The new disc features a laundry list of guest stars, including: George Lynch (Dokken/Lynch Mob), Stephen Pearcy (Ratt), Jeff Loomis (Nevermore), Steve Brown (Trixter), Lizzy DeVine (Vains of Jenna)and Produced by Michael Raphael.

SHAMELESS just released their 5th studio effort with “Dial S For Sex” (Red Skunk Records). The German based band’s nucleus is Alexx Michael (Bass) and BC (Guitars). Like other releases – the group has multiple guests on both recordings and in live performance. The band features 2 lead vocalists Stevie Rachelle (TUFF) along with Steve Summers (Pretty Boy Floyd). “Dial S For Sex” includes guests Chris Holmes (W.A.S.P.), the late great Jani Lane (Warrant) as well as Producer and guest guitarist Keri Kelli (Alice Cooper Band).


SHAMELESS and TUFF mash up in a another unique way with their remake of the TUFFclassic Summertime Goodbye. Alexx Michael: “I had this demo in 1988 and thought the song was great then, I love it even more now!”  

The TUFF/SHAMELESS tour line up for spring 2012 is as follows: Stevie Rachelle – Vocalist (TUFF), Alexx Michael– Bassist (SHAMELESS)& Tod “T” Burr– Drummer (TUFF). Due to bad ski accident, SHAMELESSaxeman BC cannot make the initial set of dates so the band welcomes guest guitarists Andy Brings (TRACEE LORDS/SODOM)and Niki Indjov (GEMINUS).
