In a rare break from his day job as the bass player with Status Quo, John 'Rhino' Edwards releases Black Widows, the first single from his new solo album Rhino's Revenge II, on December 18.

The thunderous Black Widows is a socio-political tale about Chechen suicide bombers and contains the prophetic line "what's over there is coming over here".

To accompany Black Widows the band have created a live video which can be viewed at:

Released by Molano Music, Rhino's Revenge II is an energetic and diverse album that celebrates music, and comes 15 years after the band's debut album.

Rhino's Revenge lI was recorded in '11 days of pure magic' with his sons Max on drums and Freddie on guitar, and multi-instrumentalist Matthew Starritt. Rhino's daughter, Mae, also contributed backing vocals to the album, produced by Mike Paxman (Judie Tzuke, Uriah Heep, Asia, Status Quo).

"I play Rhino Rock, Thug Rock, Animal Rock, Heavy Rock, Pop Rock, but with the main focus on the lyrics and the songs. It's rabble-rousing rock 'n roll."

Rhino's Revenge II is an aural treat, with no calculated image or reliance on nostalgia: instead Rhino and the band have created an atmosphere based around strong material and succeed in immersing listeners into the ambiance they have made. The album is the perfect manifestation of John 'Rhino' Edwards' immutable wit, sadness, quiet anger and charm.

Along with Black Widows, the album features 11 further songs that deal with a wide range of subjects from vacuous aspects of modern life though to man's best friend.

This is a quintessentially English album and there's something indefinable but very special about Rhino's Revenge II that makes it irresistible. Rhino Edwards, a confessed musicoholic, has created a truly honest album which 'kicks like a mule' ; a rare commodity in today's world.
