DAVE BICKLER No Longer Part of SURVIVOR

Artist: 
Categories: 
 
More sad news from the dysfunctional world of SURVIVOR. Vocalist Dave Bickler has left. Or been removed. Under what circumstances it is not clear - although the tweet from Frankie Sullivan suggests - it was not good.
 
"To all my dear fans, Bitter sweet news that I am no longer a member of Survivor. Just wanted to share that with you. There is no longer a place for me in the band. So I'll be moving on and direct all my energies to my solo project. And thank you for all your support. Peace. Dave."

TED POLEY Goes 'Beyond The Fade' May 13

Artist: 
Friday, May 13, 2016
Categories: 

Frontiers Music Srl is excited to announce the release of TED POLEY's new solo album 'Beyond The Fade' on May 13.
Best known as lead vocalist for the legendary Melodic Rock masters Danger Danger, Ted Poley is also an accomplished solo artist, having released two acclaimed releases, 'Collateral Damage' (2006) and 'Smile'(2007).
The story of 'Beyond The Fade' starts after Danger Danger's acclaimed performance at Frontiers Rock Festival in Milano in 2014, when he and the label developed the idea to work together on some new music. The next step was to speak to producer Alessandro Del Vecchio (Hardline, Edge of Forever) and with a band that he put together, Ted performed at the second edition of the Frontiers Rock Festival. A few months later, Ted came back to Italy to finish the vocals on the album.
Ted says: 'I am absolutely thrilled with the way the whole album came out. If I have one quote: "ITS AWESOME!" My great friend and co-producer Alessandro Del Vecchio brought my sonic vision to life and no request from me was too great for him toward his goal of making "The Ultimate Ted Poley Solo Album" and he surely delivered on his promise. We had alot of fun making the album and its obvious when you hear it. You can practically hear my smile while I am singing. We decided to make it sound BIG and there are a ton of backing vocals (in some cases more than 80 tracks of them!), along with great songs, soaring melodic guitar leads, pounding bass and big drums, all layered with cool keyboards... like a delicious Musical Cake! Save some room for dessert, I KNOW THAT YOU ARE GOING TO LOVE THIS ONE!'
With songs penned by the brothers Tom and James Martin (VEGA) and 'Hands of Love' written by Tony Bruno/Joe Lynn Turner Official Page, the sound of the record is nothing else but Ted Poley at his best, with immediately recognizable hooklines, amazing guitar work, immaculate production and total 80's attitude!

'Beyond the Fade' is sure to please not only Ted Poley's fans, but all fans of melodic hard rock. Don't miss this superb release.

Here is an EPK of the album with a LOT of stories from Ted (as usual):

'Beyond the Fade' tracklisting includes:
1. Let's Start Something
2. Everything We Are
3. Hands Of Love
4. The Perfect Crime
5. Stars
6. Higher
7. Where I Lost You
8. You Won't See Me Cryin'
9. We Are Young
10. Sirens
11. Beneath The Stars

BRYAN ADAMS Channels Rock Royalty For Latest Album 'Get Up!' InTheStudio

Artist: 
Wednesday, November 26, 2014
Categories: 

Dallas, TX - March 2, 2016.  North American syndicated Rock radio show and website InTheStudio: The Stories Behind Historys Greatest Rock Bands reunites with multi-million selling international star Bryan Adams to talk about his latest album Get Up

Bryan Adams has been recording hits for four decades now, rekindling his famous songwriting partnership with Jim Vallance and recruiting ELO mastermind and producer Jeff Lynne to record some of the strongest songs Bryan has released in years. Bryan tells InTheStudio host Redbeard, The idea wasnt really ever to make an album though (with Jeff Lynne). It was really just to do a song or two and see how it goes and have fun. 

Along with the warm close-miced Jeff Lynne production on Bryans catchy Thats Rock and Roll, Go Down Rockin, the celebratory song Brand New Day, the Beatlesque Dont Even Try, and the melancholy Yesterday Is Just A Dream, Bryan shares the back story of who he was channeling for the vocal performance on We Did It All.

I was thinking about Freddie Mercury. I was thinking about how when Freddie sang he was always so emotive and he was always convincing.  - Bryan Adams

Get Up, Bryans 13th album, may be thirty-five plus years into his recording career, but as he tells InTheStudio host Redbeard, its as vital to him as the day he started making music.

I have the same exuberance and enthusiasm for writing music now as I ever have. I dont know if I write the same songs as I used to write. I think these stand up, and the true test of it is playing it live. These songs feel like theyve been in the set already for along time.  -  Bryan Adams.

Categories: 
 
March 23 is the date for yet another classy debut album from MelodicRock Records. This time it’s time to get your metal on with JULY REIGN.
 
JULY REIGN is an international recording project featuring Sheldon Scrivner of Missoula, Montana, USA, Carsten 'Lizard' Schulz (Domain, Evidence One, Dead End Heroes) of Baden-Württemberg, Germany, and Mark Duran of Denver, Colorado.
 

SHOWBIZ’ debut album Enjoy The Ride will be released worldwide from March 23.

Now here is another full length tune you can check out from the album and 90 second soundbytes are also available to sample.
 
 
 

 

 
After hearing Evidence One on Pandora, Sheldon contacted Carsten and asked him if he would be interested in collaborating on some recordings and sent him a few music samples. Carsten quickly responded and said he indeed would be interested, and the seeds of July Reign were planted.
 
A few songs evolved into a whole album. Sheldon and Mark's friendship and musical relationship go way back in time to the big-hair metal days of the late 80s in Phoenix, Arizona.
 
Sheldon is influenced by the melodic emotion of David Gilmore, the energy of Joe Satriani, the fretboard acrobatics of guitar greats like Tony MacAlpine, Paul Gilbert, Vinnie Moore, and many others. He has forged his own style of coaxing fire and passion out of six strings. Inspired early on by the hard rock guitarists of the 70s, weaned on the guitar frenzy heydays of the 80s, and energized by today's modern generation of shredders, Sheldon's playing has never been better.
 
Having played over the years in various bands and recording projects from the Bay Area in California to Phoenix, Arizona, Sheldon moved to Montana in '99.
 
JULY REIGN is:
Sheldon Scrivner: Guitars & Keys
Carsten 'Lizard' Schulz: Vocals
Mark Duran: Drums
 
 
JULY REIGN’s debut album Here Comes The Flood will be released worldwide by MelodicRock Records on March 23.
 
Pre-orders available shortly.

Enjoy The Ride is a prime high energy mix of Firehouse, Van Halen and Poison, delivered with a crunching production and some truly memorable songs and blazing guitars.
 
ShowBiz is a band formed by Albert Maroto, ex-guitar player of Dreamaker and Dark Moor, who in the last decade has recorded several albums and toured around Spain and around the world.
He's also a die-hard fan of hard rock music in all its styles and eras, so he decided to begin writing songs of this musical style a few years ago, finishing his first ShowBiz full album Enjoy the Ride.
 
The band is also Nacho Arriaga on drums (Arwen, Monterrey and ex Inn-trance) and Xone Aranda on bass (Time Symmetry).
 
Albert Maroto - Lead Vocals & Guitars
Nacho Arriaga - Drums
Xone Aranda - Bass
 
And no introduction would be complete without a taste of what the album offers. So here are the first two tracks from the album – the opening track (and lyric video) What U See is What U Get as well as the following track, the instant classic Everybody's Got A Chance.
 
Both SHOWBIZ and the also announced JULY REIGN will be available for pre-order shortly.
