DIRTY LOOKS Is Back! First 2020 Shows Announced

December 9, 2019

Hard rockers DIRTY LOOKS have reunited and are in the process of booking several shows in early 2020. In addition to original members Paul Lidel (guitar),Jack Pyers (bass) and Gene Barnett (drums),the group's current lineup includes DANGEROUS TOYS, BROKEN TEETH and IGNITOR frontman Jason McMaster.

So far, two new DIRTY LOOKS concerts have been announced: March 20, 2020 at the Ballroom Blitz in Glen Burnie, Maryland, and March 21, 2020 in Central, Pennsylvania, with more details to be made available soon. DIRTY LOOKS will perform its breakthrough album "Cool From The Wire" in its entirety at Ballroom Blitz.

The news of DIRTY LOOKS' return comes almost nine years after the passing of the band's original lead singer, Henrik Ostergaard.

In 1985, Henrik started DIRTY LOOKS. Three independent albums and an EP soon followed, which led to DIRTY LOOKS getting signed by Atlantic Records. Henrik was later picked up by Sony and FnA Records through which DIRTY LOOKS released another album, "I.C.U.", in 2010.

Lidel, Pyers and Barnett played on DIRTY LOOKS' "Cool From The Wire" (1988) and "Turn Of The Screw" (1989) albums. Lidel was in the band from 1987 to 1994 and in 2007; Pyers from 1986 to 1990, in 1991 and again from 2007 to 2008; and Barnett from 1987 to 1990 and 1993.

McMaster and Lidel are also bandmates in DANGEROUS TOYS.

Ostergaard passed away on January 27, 2011. The Erie County, Pennsylvania coroner stated that he had died of liver failure while under hospice care. He was 47 years old.
