DEF LEPPARD Upcoming Album Featuring All Members On Vocals

Artist: 
Thursday, April 16, 2015
Categories: 
 
It is being reported that the upcoming (most likely self-titled) Def Leppard release will feature all members on lead vocals. BUT JUST ON ONE TRACK apparently. 
 
Vivian Campbell has already gone on the record stating he feels it is the best album recorded by the band since his arrival in 1992, but a new interview indicated all members would have a turn on lead vocals for the "diverse and experimental" new album.
 
In another recent interview, Joe Elliott is quoted as stating that while all will sing, it will only be on a verse or chorus or such, not on an entire song.
 
The album is expected out before the end of the year.

BEAUVOIR FREE Debut 'American Trash' Out on Frontiers June 5

Artist: 
Wednesday, June 3, 2015

Frontiers Music Srl is excited to announce the release of American Trash the anticipated new album featuring Rock & Roll veterans Jean BEAUVOIR and Micki FREE on June 5 in Europe and June 9 in North America.
 
Best known as the driving force behind the legendary Crown of Thorns self-titled debut album in 1994, Jean Beauvoir and Micki Free’s collective credits read like a “who’s-who” Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, with a list of collaborations that includes the likes of the Ramones, KISS, Debbie Harry, The Pretenders, John Waite, Lionel Richie, N'Sync, Billy Gibbons of ZZ Top, Bill Wyman, Carlos Santana and Prince to name but a few.
 
The duo both coincidentally moved back to LA in 2003 and re-connected. They discussed joining forces again for a new project and after a few shows in Europe in 2013, a deal with Frontiers was inked for a brand new album to be recorded in 2014.
 
The result is American Trash, an album that shaped up as “the continuation of the BEAUVOIR FREE sound as the writing team for the Crown of Thorns debut,” explains Jean Beauvoir. “When we write together there really is this magic. We know we want killer guitar riffs and major melodic chorus... and this is what turns out in our songs, in Beauvoir Free style.”
 
All the new songs came out like "rocking-babies" in the BEAUVOIR FREE fold. “…And all represent the sound only Jean and I create together. The "inimitable" sound of BEAUVOIR FREE,” tells Micki Free.
 
Joining forces once again, Jean and Micki can truly unleash the magic that they can only create when they write together, of that there is no doubt!
 
“We both feel this CD is some of the best work we have done, right up their next to the Crown of Thorns debut” concludes Jean. “We want to get out on the road and bring it to the fans. We receive a lot of enquires of when are you guys coming back out on tour and people telling us they can't wait to hear the new material. Frankly we can’t wait for our fans to hear American Trash as well!”
 
Enjoy an EPK trailer of the album here:
 

The American Trash track list includes: Angels Cry; Morning After; American Trash; Whiplash; Just Breathe; Shotgun To The Heart;  Never Give Up; Cold Dark December; It’s Never Too Late; She’s A K.O.; There’s No Starting Over.
 
BEAUVOIR FREE
JEAN BEAUVOIR – Lead Vocals and Background Vocals, Bass, Rhythm Guitars, Drums, Keyboards and Orchestration
MICKI FREE - Lead Guitars, Rhythm and Acoustic Guitars
 
Produced by Jean Beauvoir

AEROSMITH Blue Army Tour 2015: Summer Trek To Kick Off June 13

Artist: 
Tuesday, April 14, 2015
Categories: 

Following their wildly successful and acclaimed 2014 Let Rock Rule tour, AEROSMITH--Rock's greatest live act--will return to the road June 13 with their 'Blue Army Tour 2015.' The trek will take the band's all original members--Steven Tyler, Joe Perry, Joey Kramer, Tom Hamilton, and Brad Whitford--to 15 cities before concluding in Grand Rapids, MI on Tuesday, August 4.

Says Joe Perry: "The name Blue Army came from the fact that 'everyone' in our audience from the 70's were wearing blue denim and it looked like a sea of blue, thus The Blue Army."

Immediately following the tour, AEROSMITH will perform on Friday, August 7 at Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium in Canton, Ohio for the Pro Football Hall of Fame's first-ever Concert for Legends. The concert--part of the 2015 Pro Football Hall of Fame Enshrinement Festival--will pay tribute to the legends of the game on the eve of the Enshrinement for the Class of 2015.

On the 'Blue Army Tour 2015,' AEROSMITH will perform a set including their career-defining biggest hits, many of which are highlighted of their upcoming Aerosmith Rocks Donington 2014 DVD (Eagle Rock Entertainment).  Captured live at Donington Park in Leicestershire, UK, in June 2014 as part of the band's critically acclaimed Let Rock Rule definitive rock & roll experience, the DVD (release date TBD) features 19 of the band's most iconic hits including 'Love In A Elevator,' 'Janie's Got A Gun,' 'Don't Wanna Miss A Thing,' 'Dude Looks Like A Lady,' 'Walk This Way,' 'Dream On,' 'Sweet Emotion' and many more.

AEROSMITH are a living piece of American music history, having sold over 150 million albums worldwide and been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. They are the recipients of countless awards including four GRAMMYs, eight American Music Awards, six Billboard Awards and 12 MTV Video Music Awards, among many other honors. Their latest honors include the 2013 ASCAP Founders Award and induction, also in 2013, into the Songwriter Hall of Fame at the 44th annual SHOF ceremony. MUSIC FROM ANOTHER DIMENSION! (Columbia) , the band's latest album, was released in late 2012. Proving that they can cross genre-boundaries with ease, these rock legends have even taken home a Soul Train Award for Best Rap Single for their remix of Run DMC's "Walk This Way."  With scores of multi-platinum albums, AEROSMITH continues to inspire generations to get their wings, get a grip and just push play. It is no wonder why they are one of the most beloved bands of all time.

AEROSMITH's 2015 summer tour dates are as follows:

Sat 6/13 Glendale, AZ Gila River Arena
Wed 6/24 Evansville, IN The Ford Center
Sat 6/27 Durant, OK Choctaw Casino Event Center

Artist: 
Wednesday, May 20, 2015
Categories: 

British hard rock giants TEN announced that the release of their eagerly awaited 12 studio album is scheduled for May 20th 2015 via Rocktopia Records. The new album is titled ‘Isla de Muerta‘ and follows hot on the heels of their ground-breaking and highly lauded 2014 opus ‘Albion‘. The album cover was illustrated by Gaetano Di Falco, can be viewed below.
 
Named after the mythical ‘Island Of The Dead‘ from Pirate legend and as the title would suggest, this time around the album has a very ‘piratical, seafaring‘ feel. In true classic TEN style, the album opens with the atmospheric ‘Buccaneers‘ instrumental and segues straight into the cinematic ‘Dead Men Tell No Tales‘. Any fans of TEN and their expanding catalogue will not be disappointed.
 
Track listing:
 
01. (i) Buccaneers (Instrumental)
(ii) Dead Men Tell No Tales
02. Tell Me What To Do
03. Acquiesce
04. This Love
05. The Dragon And Saint George
06. Intensify
07. (i) Karnak (Instrumental)
(ii) The Valley Of The Kings
08. Revolution
09. Angel Of Darkness
10. The Last Pretender
11. We Can Be As One (European Bonus)
 
Isla de Muerta‘ will be the second outing for this current line-up and sees the boys build upon the foundation stones laid by their ‘Albion‘ release.
 
TEN are:

Gary Hughes - Vocals
Dann Rosingana - Guitars
Steve Grocott - Guitars
John Halliwell - Guitars
Steve Mckenna - Bass
Darrel Treece-Birch - Keyboards
Max Yates - Drums

 
Expect all the trademark TEN essences: Great songs, Big choruses, stunning solo work and twin leads with the British seven piece once again raising the bar and firing on all cylinders.
Isla de Muerta‘ promises to inspire the imagination, with songwriter Gary Hughes once again delving into a rich and varied array of subject matter this time around. Delivered in the classic TEN manner and conjuring images on a simply cinematic scale.
 
The wait is almost over!
