Rob De Luca (UFO, Sebastian Bach) talks new UFO album A Conspiracy Of Stars, new OF EARTH video
Feb 6, 2015

OF EARTH the N.Y.C. band fronted by UFO bassist Rob De Luca has released a new music video entitled Sweep The Fire, from their sophomore album The Monarch. The intense tale of marginalism and reclamation was recorded by Grammy Award winning engineer Tom Camuso and mastered by Howie Weinberg. The neo-psychedelic video for 'Sweep The Fire' was directed by Her Vanished Grace Productions.

Sweep The Fire is also available as a FREE download (or stream) at:

Rob is also excited to discuss the new UFO album 'A Conspiracy Of Stars', due out Feb 23 on SPV Records:
"The whole process was so much fun and low stress. Nowadays it's all too common for bands to prioritize internet file sharing when preparing for a record. Instead, UFO chose to do full band rehearsals in Hannover, Germany and pre-production in Kent, England. Very LOUD, LIVE and all in the same room. I think that really shows in the end result. We then travelled to Deal, England (pretty much on the Cliffs Of Dover) for recording. Andy Parker was on fire and I feel the disc clearly captures his talent. Andy fed off that live energy and intuitively reacted with phenomenal drumming. Vinnie Moore wrote a busload of incredible songs with HUGE, badass riffs! His soloing is absolutely inspired and moving. Paul Raymond added actual vintage Hammond organs to A Conspiracy Of Stars, giving it a classic UFO feel that works sooo well. Paul wrote one of my favorite songs of the album titled 'The Real Deal'. It's the epitome of cool, which comes naturally to a guy who's spent 50 years in the music biz. I actually wrote a couple songs too, plus another co-write with Paul. And of course, Phil Mogg beyond delivered the goods. His lyric writing always seems to take me somewhere else, while at the same time still seeming personal. With a unique tone and melody that are so rare to find these days, Phil Mogg's a devilish pleasure to make music with! I feel Chris Tsangarides (Thin Lizzy, Judas Priest, Gary Moore) was the perfect choice to produce A Conspiracy Of Stars. He knew exactly when to let the band vibe off of each other and just play, or when to step in and suggest improvements. Well done Chris! I'm extremely proud of our "conspiracy" and think the fans will love it!"
