In an interview with Ken Tomczak to be pubished shortly, Joel says this of the album: "I did all of the writing...words, melodies, the whole nine yards. It's melodic hard rock that I describe as being Dio'ish at its heaviest and Foreigner'ish at its lightest. It's scheduled for an October release."
