Elixir Seek New Bass Player

Elixir will perform one London show with their best-known 'Son of Odin' line-up of Paul Taylor (vocals), Stormin' Norman Gordon (guitars), Phil Denton (guitars), Kevin Dobbs (bass) and Nigel Dobbs (drums) early next year (full details to be announced in the autumn). This will be bassist Kevin Dobbs' final show with Elixir, and he will say farewell to the fans and the band before handing over to a new bassist for the Keep It True show and beyond. Whilst this is sad news for Elixir, we respect Kev's decision and wish him all the best for the future and thank him for all his input and comradeship over the many years. Paul, Norms, Phil and Nigel look forward to moving on to the next chapter of the Elixir story, playing their best known favourites live with their new bass player. The band will now be actively seeking a worthy bass player to fill Kev's position.

New Elixir 3CD Box Set

Elixir have been busy behind the scenes on a number of projects recently. The first to come to fruition is the re-release of their second album in a lavish 3CD box set through Cherry Red's Hear No Evil label. CD1 is the now rare and discontinued 'Lethal Potion' album. This was Elixir's second album as it was originally released in a diluted and re-mixed form. CD2 is 'Sovereign Remedy' which is the complete second album as the band originally intended it to have been and with it's original title. "I felt that combining the two albums in one package would be interesting to the listener so that they can compare the two different releases" says Elixir's Phil Denton. It is well known that the second album was recorded by a different line-up to all other Elixir albums. Mark White was brought in on bass shortly before recording, whilst former Samson and Iron Maiden drummer Clive Burr sat behind the kit. "I thought that the Elixir Live album would be good to complete the set", adds Phil, "as there are a number of songs from the second album played by our best known Denton/Dobbs/Dobbs/ Gordon/Taylor line-up. As this is the line-up that created and was playing these songs live before the second album was recorded, I thought that again it would make for an interesting comparison to the listener". The box set is completed by a poster featuring many unseen photos on one side and the story of the making of the albums by NWOBHM expert John Tucker. The set is released on July 26th 2019, and can be pre-ordered by clicking on the link here.
