  • (02/11/05) NO VISIBLE ALBUM!

    Those who know the band will probably know that AREA 54 have never been happy with the debut 'No Visible Scars', although we've been selling it since it was released, we've always been very unhappy with the production & artwork etc. even whilst recording the album, we could see trouble ahead, but when you're young, naive & told that it will work out, you have to believe them.

    By the time we were ready to do vocals, we suspected that things were not going to get much better.

    So anyway, to cut a long story short, we have finally managed to buy the rights to the album back from our then label, and in doing so, we feel the next step for us is to sell what we have left, and not get any more pressed. Please understand that we've talked about deleting this album before it even hit the shops, and to finally be able to take this step is a huge weight off of our shoulders. We know some of you will be disappointed, but for the band, this really is the only way forward...

    As for our new album, we've been out of the studio for a while, but we're going back in soon to get the vocals finished & it's all sounding amazing!!

    If you want a copy of 'No Visible Scars', buy it from our shop while it is still available!

  • (18/10/05) Welcome to the new AREA 54 website! Take a look around, there's lots of cool new things added such as fan art, the new AREA 54 shop, photos etc. We'll be adding to this site often & revealing more about the new album we're currently recording, so check back often. We have not forgotten about the FAQ for the unreleased Guns N' Roses song 'Madagascar'.that we recorded a while back, we've just been really busy, but we promise to answer that soon!

Check out bad boy Steve soon, as we can't tell how long we'll keep these clips available for. They are slightly big files, but it's worth it, so right click & 'save target as' : click here.

  • (02/09/05) 'MADAGASCAR' FAQ

    The Guns N' Roses track 'Madagascar' that we recently recorded has resulted in a lot of questions from all over the world. We have been trying to reply to all e-mails but are currently in the recording studio and we don't have time to answer all. Rather than answering the same questions again & again, we've decided to set up a FAQ to clear things up. If you have any questions you want to submit, you can e-mail us at : lakisarea54@yahoo.co.uk
    Please put 'MADDY' in the subject box and we'll answer it if we can. Those who will then accuse AREA 54 of trying to gain publicity, there's one simple way to avoid this - don't ask any questions!

  • (27/06/2005) AREA 54 have just done the first five days in the studio. We have a few days out now, and go back in soon to continue.. All drums are done, it's sounding brilliant already, even with only the guide guitars, so things are looking good!
