Legendary hard rockers UFO have posted the following message on their official web site:
"We are delighted to welcome [drummer] Andy Parker back into the UFO family and as you know, Andy already played his 'first' gig as part of UFO's headlining festival show last November in Granada, Spain. Jason Bonham is now playing with FOREIGNER and UFO wishes him and his band all the very best for the future.
"Phil [Mogg, vocals] and Vinnie [Moore, guitar] will meet shortly in Delaware to work on new songs, whilst Paul [Raymond, keyboards/rhythm guitar] and Pete [Way, bass] are already composing material for a new studio album. The idea is to record the new album in March/April this year but no decision has yet been taken as to where these recordings will take place. We'll let you know as soon as we know!"
UFO recently released a live CD/DVD, "Showtime", via SPV. The set was recorded at Pumpwerk in Wilhelmshaven, Germany on May 13, 2005.
