      Dragon will release their first studio album since the death of Marc
      Hunter and first album of totally new material since `Bondi Road` 20
      years ago.

      Dragon today is Todd Huner (bass), Mark Williams (vocals, guitar), Bruce
      Reid (guitar) and Pete Drummond (drums).

      The band was inducted into the ARIA Hall of Fame in 2008 and joined
      on-stage by James Reyne and Ian Moss to perform ‘April Sun In Cuba’.

      Dragon formed in New Zealand in 1972 and moved to Sydney in 1975.

      In the late 70s and through the 80s, Dragon were one of the most
      successful bands based in Australia.

      The catalogue of Top 40 hits includes ‘This Time’ (26), ‘Get That Jive’
      (13), ‘Sunshine’ (36), ‘April Sun In Cuba’ (2), ‘Konkaroo’ (40), ‘Are
      You Old Enough’ (1), ‘Still In Love With You’ (27), ‘Love’s Not Enough’
      (37), ‘Rain’ (2), ‘Magic’ (33), ‘Cry’ (17), ‘Speak No Evil’ (19),
      ‘Dreams Of Ordinary Men’ (17), ‘Celebration’ (11) and ‘Young Years’ (18).

      The Dragon line-up changed regularly and often under drastic
      circumstances. Original drummer Neil Storey died of a drug over-dose in
      1976, keyboard player Paul Hewson died from drugs in 1985 and singer
      Marc Hunter lost his life to cancer in 1998.

      Dragon will launch the new album at The Basement on August 13, 2009.
