Traders To Prove They Have Goods

Who: Rogue Traders, Kelly Clarkson
Where: Newcastle Entertainment Centre
When: Friday November 18, 2005

TWO years may have passed since The Rogue Traders last hit the Australian charts but the electro-rock single Voodoo Child has exploded across the airwaves, signalled their return.

The band is back with a new look, a new sound and a new band member in singer and Neighbours actress Natalie Bassingthwaighte .

The Rogue Traders are supporting Kelly Clarkson on her national tour which will stop at Newcastle Entertainment Centre on November 18.

The group has also been announced in the line-up for Homebake on December 3.

Since winning an ARIA in 2003 for Best Dance Single for their INXS remix One Of My Kind , James Ash and Steve Davis felt they had been stereotyped as producers, not as artists who could write songs.

Ash said it was at that moment that they drew a line in the sand and said, ``We are going to be known for our own material''.

Two years in the making, Here Come The Drums is the highly anticipated second album from The Rogue Traders.

The album was self-written and self- produced by the band. ``We love our rock music and we love our electronic music and on this album we're meeting right in the middle,'' Ash said.``We're making music that will work on the dance floor and on radio. We're not afraid to have a pop influence, but we also wanted attitude.'' After the supporting gig at the entertainment centre Ash will play a DJ set at the King Street Hotel .

Tickets for Clarkson and The Rogue Traders are available by phoning 4921 2121 or 132 849 and at ticketek.com.au
