SXSW & U.S. TOUR DATES CONFIRMED FOR THIS SPRING

Legendary rocker MICHAEL MONROE has long been at the forefront of breaking
music barriers.  This spring he returns with a highly anticipated new group
that was announced on Monday, January 25 at a press conference hosted by
pro-skater, video director and MTV personality Bam Margera at Swing House
Rehearsal & Recording Studios in Hollywood, CA.  News about an upcoming
album and U.S. tour dates, plus details about the Michael Monroe Mobile
Backstage application for mobile devices–the personal hotline between the
fans and MONROE’s band anywhere in the world at any given time—was unveiled
as well.

The MICHAEL MONROE band features bassist SAMI YAFFA who has played with a
remarkable variety of bands including Hanoi Rocks, New York Dolls and Joan
Jett & the Blackhearts; guitarist GINGER who has dazzled audiences over the
world with his band The Wildhearts. Also on guitar is TODD YOUTH, the master
fretman who has played with many top-tier hard rock ensembles including
Danzig, Motorhead, Glen Campbell, Samhain, D Generation and most recently
Chelsea Smiles.  Rounding out the band is drummer JIMMY CLARK, whose resume
includes providing rhythm for the likes of Deborah Harry (who would later
introduce him to Michael Monroe), Joan Jett & the Blackhearts, Glen
Burtnick, Rick Derringer, Wynonna, Blackhawk and The Van Zant Brothers.
Jimmy also played in Michael´s band Demolition 23 which also included Sami
Yaffa.

Coming off the Hanoi Rocks rebirth from 2002-2009, MICHAEL MONROE makes his
long-awaited mark on America starting with SXSW and West Coast U.S. dates in
March with his incredible team of players.  In addition to a schedule of
exclusive live performances, which also includes Finland, Sweden, UK in
April and east coast dates in May, MICHAEL MONROE and his band are set to
enter the studio in the spring to record a new album for the fall.

Fans can keep up with MONROE and his players via the Michael Monroe Mobile
Backstage mobile application available now for free through Apple’s
iPhone/iPod application store and at www.michaelmonroe.com
<http://www.michaelmonroe.com/> .  With this, MONROE’s followers everywhere
can experience everything that happens on the road and backstage exclusively
in real time through their mobile phone. In addition to viewing and sharing
videos, pictures and messages both ways directly with the band, they can
comment and rate all material and also connect with other fans. The
application works in iPhone, iPod Touch, most of Nokia & Sony Ericsson
phones and many of LG’s & Samsung’s models.

Mobile Backstage is a mobile fan community platform that provides
individually branded social applications for artists and bands. It’s not
about conventional web-based social media like Facebook or Twitter where
brands are competing with each other for everyone’s attention.  Instead, it
is hand-crafted to gather the artist’s most devoted followers into one
dedicated mobile social environment.  The internationally awarded mobile fan
community service Mobile Backstage is now on the launch pad.  Behind the
product is Steam Republic Ltd. Several international pilot cases will be
paving the way and one of the first pilots is the Michael Monroe Mobile
Backstage.  For more information relating Mobile Backstage, visit
