“A truly gifted player. . . . every note filled with passion and emotion”
“The ace in this bands pack surely must be the guitar playing of Andy Boulton . . . . . a guitar hero is born.”

So Dear friends, as we all find ourselves confined to home in the midst of the Covid - 19 Pandemic, my first message is the most important . . . stay safe and blessings to you all in these weird times.
The second message is that the new Blade album "Dark Revolution" is now available for pre-sale (details at tokyoblade.com)
Hot on the heels of the well received "Unbroken" album, our 10th Studio album recorded and mixed by myself at my home studio and mastered by the mastering supremo Gwyn Mathias who also did "Unbroken" and as previously mentioned, also mastered the album I wrote and recorded with my friend "AIO" to be released later this year titled "Valley of the Kings" by The Last Renegades.
There's so much going on right now and Tokyo Blade is of course the band that I have devoted over 40 years of my life to and therefore is my priority. I am very pleased with the Last Renegades album and the album I did with ex-Blade vocalist Chris Gillen for those who wanna check it out it's called "Legend has it . . ." by Gillen and the Villains and is available in the usual places and the re-mixed and re-mastered version will be available for download on the Gillen and the Villains website this summer.
So lots of new music from Blade and Myself and friends coming out this year and having this unexpected extra time on my hands means I can actually get this website up to date. Anyway folks please take care of one another, follow the professionals advice and stay safe. We will all get through this.
Here are the order links for the ‘Dark Revolution’ CD and LP:
Hot on the heels of Dark Revolution, is "The Last Renegades-Valley of The Kings" To be released this August, pre-order here
The album is a collaboration between Andy and vocalist "Aio"
Way back in time, Andy and Aio found each other through the internet and wrote a couple of songs together. One of which is the song "when will I see you again" featured on this, their first album together.
Owing to Aio's commitments and Andy's work with Tokyo Blade it didn't come to anything.
Fast forward to 2019 and Aio wrote to Andy following the release of the Tokyo Blade album "Unbroken" just to say "Hi" and touch base. A conversation between them followed and they decided it would be fun to write together just for fun and to satisfy their creative leanings. One thing leads to another and in no time they had enough for an album, as they both have their own home studios recording was quick and simple. The two of them have never even met and yet they've produced an album which is quite different from anything they have done previously, yet maintains the hard rock edge they are well known for. As stated, the release will be August this year previews are available at
thelastrenegades.com and the guys sincerely hope you enjoy it as much as they enjoyed making it.
