PLACE VENDOME Album 'Close to the Sun' Due February 24

Artist: 
 
Frontiers Music Srl is excited to announce the release of the brand new PLACE VENDOME album, “Close to the Sun” on February 24th, 2017.
 
One of the most popular projects put together over the years by Frontiers' President Serafino Perugino, Place Vendome was an idea sparked during a phone conversation between Serafino and former Helloween singer Michael Kiske, where they discussed their common passion for several melodic rock giants of the 80’s. The Hamburg singer agreed to be part of a studio project where he would sign songs written especially for him by various writers with an AOR/melodic rock flavor.
 
The amazing reception of the first PLACE VENDOME album released in 2005 planted the seeds for a second recording, “Streets of Fire”, which was recorded during 2008 and for a third album, “Thunder in the Distance,” which was released in 2013. Being a project so close to Kiske’s heart, it was agreed during 2016 that work on a new album would start with his Unisonic  bandmate Dennis Ward at the production helm, as usual.
 
Of the album, Ward said, "Upon receiving the demos for the new songs intended for the new Place Vendome record I was a bit concerned because a few vocal styles seemed to go against what Michael Kiske is known for vocally. After talking together we agreed to just let the melodies come out naturally, without trying to imitate or “reproduce” the demos. Michael really stood up to this on the new album. He did “his” thing, with no compromises. He managed to make the songs his own and brought all the songs to another level. I have a lot of respect for him because of this and now the album is much more than just another AOR album. That being said I have to pay high respects to the other musicians on the album: Dirk Bruineberg proved again that he is a multi-talented drummer that can literally pull of any groove, any style of any era with the highest of expectations. Günter Werno is also a gem amongst a pile of stones. He really shines on this album and holds all the songs together, true to the Place Vendome sound. Uwe Reitenauer is also a master of his instrument taking over duties that were critical and complicated to say the least. He has the perfect AOR tone and can implement it no matter what type of song you throw at him. The rest of the “guests" that helped out made this album into a truly interesting compilation and also making this a milestone for Place Vendome. That being said, it’s the first Place Vendome album where I feel that we have achieved our trademark sound. This is how we want to be heard and this is how we imagine ourselves to sound."
 
Speaking of other album guests, once again, Magnus Karlsson (Primal Fear) was one of the first to answer the call to participate and offered the awesome song, “Falling Star” to the project. Jani Liimatainen (Cain's Offering, ex Sonata Arctica) was the next contributor with the epic “Welcome to the Edge”, the album’s tour de force. Following Labyrinth’s reunion, guitarist Olaf Thorsen sat with Eternal Idol, Angra and Rhapsody singer Fabio Lione and offered “Helen” and “Riding the Ghost”. Frontiers’ President Serafino Perugino then proposed that his favourite DGM song, “Hereafter” be included. This brought DGM’s main composer, Simone Mularoni into the picture and he wrote the album’s title track and “Across the Times”. Alessandro Del Vecchio also offered two new songs, “Strong” and “Yesterday Is Gone”, while Secret Sphere’s guitarist Aldo LoNobile wrote “Distant Skies” and “Breathing”. The full picture was finally completed with a new song written by Swedish melodic rock artist Michael Palace (Palace, Skylander), “Light Before the Dark”.
 
Kiske and Ward wanted to make the album a little bit special, so besides the “usual suspects” (including drummer Dirk Bruinenberg, Vanden Plas’ ivory tinkler Gunter Werno and Pink Cream 69’s Uwe Reineauer on guitars), some guitar heavyweights appear on the recordings. The list includes Alfred Koffler and (of course) Uwe Reineauer of Pink Cream 69, Magnus Karlsson, Michael Klein, Gus G (Ozzy Osbourne, Firewind), Simone Mularoni, and Unisonic guitarists Kai Hansen and Mandy Meyer among the others.
 
Kiske comments: “The production with my buddy Dennis was great, as always, but what I especially like about this album - beside the new microphone I used that Dennis has built me - is the various styles of the songs. It is all a still very AOR-produced album, but we also have progressive or ''wilder'' elements here and there. It was (again) interesting to see how much the songs change until you finally reach the mixing stage.”
 
In a year that will see Michael Kiske rejoin with his old HELLOWEEN bandmates for a unique world tour, PLACE VENDOME’s new album is the icing on the cake of a special and very rewarding period for the German singer.
 
All in all, “Close to the Sun” is probably the most hard rocking release ever from Place Vendome and an absolute monster of an album!

AGE OF AQUARIOUS Prepare Their 'Dawn' February 7

 
Rock Company would like to introduce you to their new project Age Of Aquarius!
 
We are in the Age Of Aquarius and it was never about fluffy bunny rabbits, unicorns and walking around in wifty wafty clothes’… It’s about great changes and destruction of the old, which will eventually bring birth to the new.

Uranus, God of the sky and the heavens, is the ruler of Aquarius. Destruction & Change being the key parts of this sign – which then awakens new thinking, creativity and brings people back to life.  In Astrology, the energies of Uranus are electric and crammed with change. Uranus is forward-looking. It balks at tradition, and celebrates originality and individuality.

And Aquarius empties the vessel of the old, in order to refill it with new fresh waters.
 
And here we have 2 Aquarians taking on the challenge of bringing something new to the table. Original and fresh. On instruments we have Dutchmen Peter Cox (Forest Field, Earthshine), who also wrote the songs. All vocals are provided by the lovely Zoe Ehinger, born and raised in England, but now a resident of the USA. Heavily influenced by Astrology and the mysteries of this and other worlds, Zoe rewrote  the lyrics to express her feelings on the topics at hand.
 
Watch and listen to the track Darling Jupiter, from the album Dawn Of The Age Of Aquarius, out February 3, 2017:

LIONVILLE Roar Back To Life February 24

Artist: 

Frontiers Music Srl is pleased to announce the release of LIONVILLE's third album, 'A World Of Fools' on February 24, 2017.
 
Born as a project dedicated to pure AOR with a touch of Westcoast and melodic rock, LIONVILLE draw musical inspiration from acts like Toto, Richard Marx, Giant, Bad English, Survivor Band, and Boulevard. The band was started by Stefano Lionetti, a songwriter, singer, and guitarist based in Genova, Italy and his brother Alessandro. After years of playing the local club circuit of Genova, Stefano formed LIONVILLE Official with the encouragement and help of Pierpaolo 'Zorro' Monti (Shining Line) and Alessandro Del Vecchio (Hardline, Revolution Saints, Ted Poley, etc.). With the involvement of singer Lars Safsund (Work of Art), LIONVILLE quickly took shape and became something very near and dear to everyone involved.
 
With two critically acclaimed releases - which came out in 2011 and 2012 ' Lionville managed to find their place in the European melodic rock scene while also appearing at Firefest in Nottingham in 2012. With their combination of rockin' AOR tunes and classic Westcoast AOR sounds, Lionville piqued the interest of Frontiers, who signed the band in early 2016.
 
'It's a very important record for LIONVILLE, since we are coming back after four years of silence,' says Stefano Lionetti. 'I really wanted to make happy all the fans who waited so long for it. As a producer and songwriter I have done my best to create a high class record, but with the right variety. You will find classic Melodic Rock songs, a couple of ballads, songs in the style of the previous record and of course a lot of attention on the arrangements. I also wanted to have more of a band feel with this record and I am very proud of the final result.'
 
'These songs have been fun to sing and they're really good,' adds Lars Safsund.
 
Recorded by a gifted cast of experienced studio cats and upcoming talents and produced by Stefano Lionetti, the new album, 'A World Of Fools' finds a winning combination of very strong songwriting (courtesy also of Robert Sall, Alessandro Del Vecchio, Bruce Gaitsch, Soren Kronkvist, Gianluca Firmo, Thomas Vikstrom, and Ida West) and stellar musical performances, crowned by impressive lead vocals and an album mix that gives space to all the significant little details.
 
The LIONVILLE team has high hopes that people will embrace their vision of a reinvigorated musical genre and everyone is looking forward to continuing the LIONVILLE story with another awesome contribution to melodic rock music.

CITY OF THIEVES Set To Arrive in 2017

 
Frontiers Music Srl is pleased to announce the signing of British hard rockers CITY OF THIEVES to the label for the release of the band's new full length album in 2017!
 
Since making their live debut at Camden Rocks Festival in May, the buzz has been spreading about City of Thieves 'no frills, no messin' around, no gimmicks' it is heavy rock in it's purest form and will send you running straight to the front of the stage with no-nonsense sledgehammer riffs, hooks and melodies.
 
Working with acclaimed artist and producer Toby Jepson (Little Angels, The Answer, Wayward Sons), City Of Thieves frontman/bassist Jamie Lailey knew at an early stage the band wanted to take rock by the scruff of it's neck and give it a good shake. "We knew what we wanted to do, we'd been devouring the songwriting and if we were inclined, we could have released a ton of material out of the gate. Toby took what we had and refined it. I'm glad we sat back and digested things with him, it was a major
turning point for the band."
 
With producer Toby Jepson at the helm, Mike Fraser on mixing duties and mastering by Simon Francis (Kodaline, Kaiser Chiefs, Primal Scream) the presentation of this new material was in the best of hands.
 
When asked what he thought about City Of Thieves, Mike Fraser simply replied "Killer band...Killer songs". This is not a throwaway comment, this is from a true craftsman who has worked on albums for Metallica, AC/DC, Slipknot, Aerosmith, and more.
 
So what about the songs? "The new material has bags of groove, different speeds and attitude. We mix it up but keep it genuine and made sure everything flows. Why play something that's monotonous, I'm not saying we're reinventing the wheel but if you think your own music is boring, why inflict that on your audience?" says Will Richards (drums). "We can't wait to unleash the other tunes and get on the road to play live," chips in Lailey.
 
With Planet Rock Radio playlisting 'Incinerator' and a string of festivals and shows under their belts, including Camden Rocks Festival, Planet Rockstock, Hard Rock Hell, Bloodstock Festival, Legends Of Rock and Ramblin' Man Fair, City Of Thieves is geared up to bring the rock in 2017!
 
These guys aren't just here to steal your soul for the love of rock n' roll...they're here to DEVOUR it. Tune in, turn it up...we'll see you down the front.
 
To get an early taste of music, take a look at the 'Incinerator' lyric video now: https://youtu.be/6y0PCBej1RE
 
CITY OF THIEVES are:
 
Vocals/Bass - Jamie Lailey
Guitar/Backing Vox - Ben Austwick

Guitarist CHRIS GREEN Set To Unleash New EP ‘Unveil’

Artist: 
 
Best known as the guitarist for metal veterans Tyketto and Rubicon Cross, Chris Green will be showcasing his six-string skills on an all-instrumental five-song EP, ‘Unveil,’ which will be issued on December 2nd (for which a teaser video can be viewed here - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k6RRFSGKJ9c). The release comes hot on the heels of Tyketto’s latest offering, ‘Reach,’ which was released via Frontier Records on October 14th.
 
“Unveil", the first single from the EP release will be made available on Friday, November 18th, 2016 and can be purchased here: https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/unveil-single/id1174379721

“I think a lot of people have forgotten what it is to be moved by a piece of music that uses no lyrics,” explains Green. “The listener gets to interpret the piece however they see fit. That was my goal. For me, to finally move freely within music with no boundaries was a complete luxury, and a challenge at the same time. What I've laid down on this album isn't just notes, it's laying every emotion I experienced during a turbulent time of my life without using a single word.”

The turbulent time that Green mentions occurred with the passing of his father, who was also one of his best friends and biggest supporters. “I still really miss our talks, but one that comes to mind and will always stay with me is essentially the reason I recorded these tracks in the first place. After an hour or so bitching about being in bands and why democracy within them seems to be not only a near impossible task but a process only matched by sitting in a dentist chair having teeth pulled, he simply said ‘Well, just record your own bloody album under your own name like I've always said to you. Then you are your own boss, can write what you want, and answer to nobody.’

As it turns out, his father’s passing also served as the inspiration for one of the EP’s standout tracks, “Undefeated.” “This is without doubt the most emotive piece I've ever written. My father was in my mind throughout the entire creation of this track. The intro to the song was something I came up with really soon after dad’s passing.”

For years now, Green has been gaining popularity amongst fans and peers alike for his melodic approach to technical lead guitar playing. His recognizable signature sound of Marshall tube amps and PRS guitars has earned him accolades across the globe. When asked about his playing style Chris says, “For me, guitar playing boils down to some very simple factors. Be melodic when it counts, flare your acrobatic abilities only when the time is right, stay in tune, and be a nice person. These things have opened more doors for me than any other advice I’ve ever received.”

With a multitude of worldwide dates behind him, including some of the most prestigious festivals known to rock fans, the future is looking extremely bright. 

Confirmed ‘Unveil’ EP Track Listing:
“UNDEFEATED”
“UNVEIL”
“ONCE FORGOTTEN”
“REMEMBER”
“WELCOME FOR A SOLDIER”

PRIDE OF LIONS Still 'Fearless' 14 Years After Debut

Frontiers Music Srl is pleased to announce the release of the highly anticipated new studio album from PRIDE OF LIONS, 'Fearless' on January 27, 2017.
 
When Frontiers released Pride Of Lions' groundbreaking first album in 2003, many people asked, 'Is this one of those project bands that do one or two albums and then disappear - or a real band with staying power?'
 
Now, in the year 2017 the answer to that question will be very clear as the band release their FIFTH studio album, Fearless! Additionally, their best selling 'Live In Belgium' album and video proves to the world that Jim Peterik and Toby Hitchcock and the powerful Pride Of Lions band is not just a studio concoction, but a live force to be reckoned with, headlining shows in America and Europe.
 
'We are always trying to top ourselves,' states singer/ songwriter/ guitarist Jim Peterik. 'This time I went back and listened closely to all the previous albums to hear the strongest assets of each record: what was working and what could be improved. I went into writing the Fearless material keeping that in mind. I feel it sticks closer to the template we set with our first release, yet goes to new places musically as well like using a Kansas- style fiddle- played by Andrew Ohlrich- on the video/single 'All I See is You'."
 
The songs and performances on Fearless are...well... truly fearless. The title track blazes from the speakers gaining steam with every chorus. 'Take the highest ground- stand and fight- you gotta be harder- you gotta be tougher- you gotta be- fearless!' This could be the new battle cry for Rocky Balboa or any common man needing to make a difference in the world.
 
'When I got together with Jim in Chicago to record, things just caught fire,' enthuses Toby. 'I sang 12 vocals in two days! That's how inspired I was with the new material.'
 
'Toby hit new heights on this one,' raves Jim. 'I was sitting behind the recording console with Larry Millas just one big goose bump as Toby glided from hard rockers like 'Rising Up', classic melodic rock like 'All I See Is You' to a heartfelt ode to timeless love- 'Everlasting Love.'
 
Future classics include 'The Tell', where the main character is giving off signals she may not even realize to the mesmerizing magic of 'Silent Music' ('I can't help it if I talk funny- I can't express the way I feel in spoken words- hold on') to the mysterious 'Freedom of the Night'. That last one was written with former Jimi Jamison keyboardist Hal Butler and the lyric, chord changes and melody seem to channel what Jimi might now be singing if his life had not been tragically cut short.
 
'The last track is one of my faves,' states Toby Hitchcock. 'I think we all can relate to the often painful process of figuring out just who we are and how we fit on this planet. 'Unmasking the Mystery' is not something that happens all at once- it happens over time and on our last day we still won't have all the answers.'
 
The album will be supported by live dates- in the States and abroad with the first show on January 28th as a part of Jim Peterik's World Stage at Wentz Hall in Naperville, Illinois.
 
In early 2017, expect the premiere of the music video for 'All I See Is You' directed by Greg Bizzarro. Greg has directed every POL video thus far, as well as the popular 'Cold Blooded' video by Peterik / Scherer which starred Leann Marie of 'I Can't Hold Back' video fame.
 
So crank it up! The louder the better, after all 'You gotta be fearless!!!'
 
'Fearless' tracklisting:
1. All I See Is You!
2. The Tell
3. In Caricature
4. Silent Music
5. Fearless
6. Everlasting Love
7. Freedom Of The Night
8. The Light In Your Eyes
9. Rising Up
10. The Silence Says It All
11. Faster Than A Prayer
12. Unmasking The Mystery

THE MURDER OF MY SWEET Deliver 'Echoes Of The Aftermath' in January


Frontiers Music Srl is pleased to announce the release of The Murder of My Sweet's fourth studio album, 'Echoes of the Aftermath' on January 27th, 2017!
 
2015 saw The Murder Of My Sweet reunite with their original label home, Frontiers for the release of their concept album 'Beth Out of Hell', a magnificent album that was described as '[a]lmost Wagnerian in style' (Sonic Cathedral) and favorably compared to such masterpieces as Queensr'che's 'Operation: Mindcrime' by the UK's Powerplay Rock and Metal Magazine.
 
The new album 'Echoes of the Aftermath' musically follows on the heels of the previous record, with a more straight ahead songwriting approach, but still offering the symphonic and cinematic elements the band is now well known for. 'Echoes of the Aftermath' showcases a Nordic sound that the members of the band grew up listening to and lyrically takes on issues in tune with our modern day life.
 
Drummer/producer Daniel Flores says: 'During the process of writing "Beth out of Hell" with Angelica, I came up with lots of riffs, melodies and music that didn't necessarily fit the concept of the album. The inspiration and creative buzz from those songwriting sessions stayed with us and helped us come up with a new album very quickly. And of course the warm reception from fans and media had a helping hand too. I'm personally also really proud of the sonic impact of this record, I've learnt so much during these past years working with Frontiers and I'm so glad I can showcase this in full force on this album. The guys in the band are feeling very creative these days and thanks to the fans we are able to give you our "Echoes of the Aftermath!'
 
Singer Angelica Rylin adds: "For me, the writing process for this album became a way to reconnect with my Nordic roots. I've always been a fan of John Bauer (Swedish painter and illustrator) and his portraits of Swedish folklore and fairy tales was a big inspiration for me. And it was a nice break from "Beth", who had become such a big part of my life for a very long time."
 
Tour dates are planned in support of the album. Be sure to catch The Murder of My Sweet when they play in a town near you!
 
Tracklisting:
1. Sleeping Giant
2. Personal Hell
3. Racing Heart
4. Cry Wolf
5. Echoes Of The Aftermath
6. Flatline
7. Loud As A Whisper
8. Shining After Dark
9. Ode To Everyone
10. Go On
11. In Risk Of Rain
12. Inside Outside

New INGLORIOUS Ready For 2017

Artist: 
 
Inglorious Announce New Studio Album For 2017, Produced by Kevin Shirley (Led Zeppelin, Aerosmith, Bon Jovi). UK Dates Scheduled For Nov & Dec 2016.

'This band are actually glorious! Amazing singer, amazing band. The best British band I've seen since'I could say The Darkness, but I really mean Led Zeppelin.' ' Legendary producer Kevin 'Caveman' Shirley (Led Zeppelin, Aerosmith, Bon Jovi, RUSH) https://youtu.be/FON64HTf0YM

'The future of rock and roll.' - Paul Anthony, Planet Rock Radio

2016 has been a stunning year for UK five-piece Inglorious. Their eponymous debut album was released through Frontiers Music Srl in February. The album received widespread critical acclaim at press, multiple A lists at radio and a lauded performance on Vintage TV. The band are managed by QEDG (Yes, Asia) and booked by Steve Strange at X-Ray (live agent for Coldplay, Eminem and Queens of the Stone Age).

The band have toured across the world, with numerous high profile shows across the UK and Europe ' including a show stopping performances at Download Festival and Ramblin' Man Fair, support to The Winery Dogs and The Dead Daisies, and culminating in support to Steel Panther's European Arena tour in October 2016.

September 2016 saw the band base themselves in Liverpool and work on the follow up studio album with legendary producer Kevin Shirley (http://www.cavemanproductions.com/biography.html). Set for release in 2017 on Frontiers Music Srl, the album is set to further push the rise of this remarkable band.

Inglorious have a run of UK dates in November and December 2016. Dates as follows:

November 2016
Fri 25th ' UK, London, Islington Academy / co-headline tour with labelmates Last In Line

Formed in February 2014, the band is fronted by Nathan James, who made a name for himself having sung for the multi-platinum selling Trans-Siberian Orchestra, and Scorpions guitar legend Uli Jon Roth. Nathan was looking for like-minded musicians that desired to make incredible rock music in a very honest fashion. For the debut album, Nathan thought to himself, 'Why are those classic albums so awesome?' He realised it was because 'the musicians were recording in an organic way; they could track it live and capture amazing energy."
 
The band is lineup completed by rhythm guitarist Wil Taylor, lead guitarist Andreas Eriksson, bassist Colin Parkinson, and drummer Phil Beaver. Wil, from the Northeast of England, is the youngest member of the band whose heroes include Mark Tremonti (Alter Bridge), Joe Satriani and Steve Lukather (Toto).
 
The same albums that have inspired generations of musicians and performers are noticeably evident when you listen to the Inglorious debut album. This is the music they were born to play together - inspired by bands in the classic rock genre as diverse as Deep Purple, Led Zeppelin, Whitesnake, Bad Company, Aerosmith and The Rolling Stones, to name a few.

JACK RUSSELL'S GREAT WHITE Launch New Album January 27


Jack Russell's Great White represents the next phase of his legacy. On January 27, 2017 Frontiers Music Srl will lay the framework for this new phase with the release of 'He Saw it Comin''.
 
'For me this is so much more than a collection of songs, it is the culmination of a lifetime of living. It is about addictions , love, pain and many facets of the human condition. I tend to write autobiographically and on this album I dealt with topics I've never explored,' explains Russell of the new record.
 
Rather than look backwards and merely attempt to relive the multi-platinum hard rock entity's storied origins, Jack Russell set his sights on the future. In December 2011, Jack Russell's Great White first bared its teeth. Robby Lochner has been with Jack since it's inception, they soon welcomed back longtime bassist and friend Tony Montana'this time as a guitar player and keyboardist' they then added drummer Dicki Fliszar , then bassist Dan McNay. This group has a sharp, soaring, eclectic, hook laden new album ready, boasting the bluesy hard rock stomp that made Russell and Montana icons in the first place.
 
'It's a powerful band,' Russell proclaims. 'The music is dynamic and I've gone where I've never gone before. Lochner was a catalyst for moving forward. I wasn't sure how the writing would go at first but soon realized the chemistry is beyond words. He's my copilot and one of my best friends.'
This past year the musicians hit the studio to cut their official full-length debut. It taps into the bluesy bombast and heavy energy of Russell's celebrated material, but it's a distinctly modern metallic monster.
 
'We want the new material to blow people's ears back,' Russell goes on. 'It has the elements of the best of Great White, but there's diversity, vibe and an edge to it. It draws from our 60's and 70's roots in a more modern way.' Montana agrees, 'It's got the classic sound. The first element is Jack's voice. No other band sounds like this one, ever did or does now. When I was 17-years-old, I remember walking around the UCLA campus listening to the band's first EP. I was a fan before I ever joined the band. We're going to maintain that integrity moving forward.'
 
That integrity became forged over nearly thirty years. In 1984, the band broke out of the Los Angeles scene with its self-titled debut followed by seismic platinum-selling outings such as 1987's Once Bitten... and 1989's 'Twice Shy. Moving over 10 million copies worldwide, they stood out as tried-and-true rock stalwarts into the 21st century until 2011, when Russell went on to form Jack Russell's Great White.
 
Ultimately, the new music is for the millions of fans who stuck by Russell all these years. It's everything they've been waiting for and more.
 
'He Saw it Comin'' Track Listing:
1. Sign Of The Times
2. She Moves Me
3. Crazy
4. Love Don't Live Here
5. My Addiction
6. Anything For You
7. He Saw It Comin'
8. Don't Let Me Go
9. Spy Vs Spy
10. Blame It On The Night
11. Godspeed
 
Jack Russell's Great White Lineup:
 
Jack Russell (Vocals)
Tony Montana (Guitar, Keyboards)
Robby Lochner (Guitar)
Dan McNay (Bass)

STEPHEN PEARCY Ready To 'Smash' Fans in January


Frontiers Music Srl is thrilled to announce the January 27, 2017 release of Stephen Pearcy's fourth original solo album, 'Smash'.
 
Stephen Pearcy, best known as the original vocalist and founding member of the platinum rock band RATT, has been working hard to complete his highly anticipated new album, while at the same time keeping busy performing shows across the U.S. The first audio offering from 'Smash', entitled 'I Can't Take It' can be heard here: https://youtu.be/vIVXAAn7Bss

Pre-order the album on iTunes and get "I Can't Take It" instantly: http://radi.al/SmashiTunes

'Smash' was mixed and mastered by bassist Matt Thorne and Pearcy and the legendary Beau Hill, the producer of RATT's first four albums, handled the mixing and mastering duties on the track 'I Can't Take It'.

Stephen will be supporting "Smash" with live dates in the U.S. and internationally.

"It took long enough to finish the new record 'Smash' and it is well worth the patience taken, giving every song as much attention as the next. Erik Ferentinos (lead guitars & co-writer), Greg D' Angelo (drums) and Matt Thorne (bass, keyboards) and myself didn't settle on any first, second or third takes. We let some songs grow if needed, then go back and complete it. We're very happy with the outcome, that we were able to experiment and grow with the new songs,' says Pearcy of the new album.

With over 15 million records and gold and platinum long form videos sold in the U.S. alone with RATT, touring the world with over 20 albums to his credit with other ventures, solo projects, compilations, best of records, and other bands he created, there is no slowing Pearcy down.

Pearcy is an accomplished songwriter with credits on all of RATT's records through the years (including "Out Of The Cellar", "Invasion Of Your Privacy", "Dancing Undercover" and more). More recently, RATT's last studio album, "Infestation" was released a few years ago to rave reviews around the world. Stephen is also a producer, composer, television program creator, art director, marketing director, and owner/product creator of "Mic Knuckle" (hands free mic holder) and has also been involved in music for ESPN2 NHRA Drag Racing. Additionally, he has been involved in sponsoring several top fuel dragsters and funny cars since the mid 80's-90's thru the 00's.

Frontiers Records Welcomes THE NIGHTS

Artist: 
 
Frontiers Music Srl is pleased to announce the signing of an extremely promising melodic rock band from Finland, THE NIGHTS.

The Nights was formed in the summer of 2015 by Sami Hyde (vocals) and Ilkka Wirtanen (guitar). Both Sami and Ilkka have successful careers in music, in Finland and abroad. Sami has been a singer for many acts and projects, including the Tony Mills Band (SHY, TNT) in 2008 which also included Geoff Nichols (Black Sabbath) on keyboards and Neil Hibbs (SHY) on guitar. He has also written songs for many artists, including The Magnificent ("If It Takes All Night", "Lost", and "Drive"). Ilkka Wirtanen is best known for his work as a producer with international acts like glam metal band Reckless Love, for whom he has produced four albums and co-written many of their popular songs, including "Hot" and "Night On Fire". He has also produced several other rock bands (Baton Rogue Morgue, Hellcity Punks) and worked as a mixer for international acts (S.E.X. Department).

THE NIGHTS was formed because Sami and Ilkka felt a common need to write songs that 'make you feel good and also give tribute to our everlasting heroes in music, for example TNT and Yngwie Malmsteen.' Frontiers interest was piqued by their songs featuring a superb mixture of classic pop melodies and modern melodic rock/metal production and the band was signed!

Rock Candy Records Latest - SAMMY HAGAR, TYKETTO, KICK AXE, SALTY DOG

Artist: 
 
The following eight new Rock Candy titles are all available now from www.rockcandyrecords.com for a discounted price.
 
SURVIVOR 'EYE OF THE TIGER' CANDY322
 
STOP ANYONE ON the street and ask them to name one of their all time favourite rock tracks and there's a very good chance that 'Eye Of The Tiger' will top that poll. As one of the most ubiquitous tracks of all time, this song not only topped the singles chart in the USA but it also became synonymous with one of the biggest movies of the 1980s, namely 'Rocky III'; Sylvester Stallone personally requested the track and, by including it in the film, gave the song a thirty million dollar promo video!
Up to that point survivor had proved to be moderately successful melodic hard rock band but with the boost from 'Rocky III' the band was suddenly thrust into the spotlight, securing them the same sort of adulation afforded other hard rock heavy hitters such as Journey, Foreigner and Boston. It was a pedestal that served them well for the rest of the decade and beyond. Both the single and the album topped the US charts in the summer of 1982.
The album was produced by guitarist Frankie Sullivan and engineered by Mike Clink, a man who would later go on to produce Guns N' Roses. Although the title track is universally known, the album contains a brace of superbly written and arranged tracks that indicate the band's talent had reached new levels of creativity, even spawning another massive hit single with 'American Heartbeat', proving, if proof were needed, that Survivor could do no wrong.
 
SPECIAL DELUXE COLLECTOR'S EDITION, FULLY REMASTERED SOUND, BONUS TRACK, 16 PAGE FULL COLOUR BOOKLET, 4,000 WORD ESSAY ABOUT THE MAKING OF THE ALBUM, NEW INTERVIEWS AND ENHANCED ARTWORK
 
TRACK LISTING: 1. EYE OF THE TIGER 2. FEELS LIKE LOVE 3. HESITATION DANCE 4. THE ONE THAT REALLY MATTERS 5. I'M NOT THAT MAN ANYMORE 6. CHILDREN OF THE NIGHT 7. EVER SINCE THE WORLD EGAN 8. AMERICAN HEARTBEAT 9. SILVER GIRL. BONUS TRACK: 10. EYE OF THE TIGER (SPECIAL EXTENDED VERSION)

 
  

SAMMMY HAGAR 'ALL NIGHT LONG' CANDY 290
 
ONE OF THE great things for rock bands during the 1970s was that they had plenty of opportunity to play live, to hugely appreciative audiences. But not only did their studio recordings have to be great they also had to deliver live in concert, and this was an area that really separated the wheat from the chaff. If you were known as a great live act then your success was almost guaranteed
With this in mind, it's no surprise that Sammy Hagar's live performances had almost become legendary. After three studio albums he had carved out a rock solid audience eager to lap up his no nonsense live performances and 'All Night Long' is a fine testament to that fact. Surrounded by members of what was, in effect, the same band that Sammy had commenced his career with, namely Montrose, and the addition of super guitarist Gary Pihl, the album cemented his ability in stone.
Originally released in 1978, and taped at headlining shows in California whilst he was promoting  the 'Musical Chairs' release, the album captures Sammy in full flight. Remarkably, there are none of the usual overdubs or studio 'fixes' on this record whatsoever, just the band and a mobile studio capturing a moment in time that still sounds remarkably fresh to this very day. Of course, the ghost of Montrose is never that far away with electrifying renditions of 'Make It Last' and 'Bad Motor Scooter' underscoring a link that will always be present.
 
SPECIAL DELUXE COLLECTOR'S EDITION, FULLY REMASTERED SOUND, 26 PAGE FULL COLOUR BOOKLET, 4,000 WORD ESSAY ABOUT THE MAKING OF THE ALBUM, NEW INTERVIEWS AND ENHANCED ARTWORK WITH PREVIOUSLY UNSEEN PHOTOS.
 
TRACK LISTING: 1. RED 2. ROCK 'N' ROLL WEEKEND 3. MAKE IT LAST / RECKLESS 4. TURN UP THE MUSIC 5. I'VE DONE EVERYTHING FOR YOU 6. YOUNG GIRL BLUES 7. BAD MOTOR SCOOTER
 
TYKETTO 'DON'T COME EASY' CANDY295
 
THE EARLY 90'S presented a massive challenge to a number of melodic rock bands. The musical climate was being transformed by a rush of angry young men playing a stripped down form of rock, less influenced by style and bravado, and built mainly on angst and melancholy. For Tyketto this landscape meant that their arrival would be subjected to a chilly reception from a media obsessed with trends and fads.
The fact that Tyketto were out of step with the prevailing musical winds didn't mean to say that their music was anything less than spectacular. Indeed, their style and execution caused major excitement amongst connoisseurs of the genre, leading many to proclaim the album as one of the best records of the entire movement.
Formed in the late 80's, this New Jersey four piece had links to well known groups such as White Lion and Waysted. Impressing a number of labels with their own meticulous style of melodic hard rock, they signed to industry giant Geffen Records and cut this, their debut album, with renowned producer Richie Zito (Heart, Bad English and Poison). Inexplicably, the label sat on the completed record for over a year before releasing it, at a time when the public was then beginning to focus on grunge.
But if you like your music to sound big, bold and crammed full of hooks, in the mould of say Bon Jovi, White Lion and Winger, then this record will send you to seventh heaven; It's truly a remarkable achievement.
 
SPECIAL DELUXE COLLECTOR'S EDITION, FULLY REMASTERED SOUND, BONUS TRACK, 16 PAGE FULL COLOUR BOOKLET, 4,000 WORD ESSAY ABOUT THE MAKING OF THE ALBUM, NEW INTERVIEWS AND ENHANCED ARTWORK WITH UNSEEN PHOTOS
 
TRACK LISTING: 1. FOREVER YOUNG 2. WINGS 3. BURNING DOWN INSIDE 4. SEASONS 5. STANDING ALONE 6. LAY YOUR BODY DOWN 7. WALK ON FIRE 8. NOTHING BUT LOVE 9. STRIP ME DOWN 10. SAIL AWAY. BONUS TRACK: 11. WALK AWAY
 
SALTY DOG 'EVERYDOG HAS ITS DAY' CANDY 304
 
THE SAYING GOES that every dog has its day but for one particular band that tired old proverb held no truth whatsoever. It's a shame, as the band in question , Salty Dog, happened to be one of the most outstanding acts of their time fusing red hot rock with a bluesy undertow that led others, such as Great White and Guns 'N Roses, to fame and fortune.
Formed in Los Angeles during the late 80s, but comprised of outsiders from a number of diverse locations, the band honed their chops in rehearsal studios, assembling a line up that would sound not only right together but also very different from what was happening on the strip. Indeed, the band's style incorporated a number of influences, from the old school rock of Led Zeppelin and Aerosmith, to the contemporary cut and thrust of Guns 'N Roses. It was also a sound that paid homage to the blues. That's the vintage gnarly influences of cats such a Muddy Waters and T-Bone Walker.
Originally released in 1990, the band received universal acclaim from critics, but failed to generate serious sales momentum. Produced by Peter Collins (Rush, Queensryche, Gary Moore) and engineered by British wunderkind Geoff Workman (Journey, Foreigner, M'tley Cr'e) the music resonates with killer intention. A sound that suggested the band would rightly take their place in the hard rock pantheon, alongside true greats, but sadly that was not to be.

NYMPHS 'S/T' CANDY305
 
THAT THE NYMPHS were not made for this commercial world is, on reflection, a pretty obvious statement. This is the story of a gloriously talented and forward thinking band, led by one of the most enigmatic and fascinating female vocalists of the time. In many respects they were destined for failure; it was a scenario written in the stars and one that maybe could never have succeeded, despite valiant attempts made by all those involved in the project. Indeed, if you are looking for a text book example of a great concept that crashed and burnt then this is the one.
Based in Los Angeles during the late 80s and led by Inger Lorre, the band were snapped up by label giant Geffen Records and touted as a revelation. Sounding pretty much unlike anything else at the time, their firebrand alt hard rock galvanised the label into believing the band held the key to the future. In many ways they did by making a stunning record, helmed by respected British producer Bill Price, the very same man who tamed the Sex Pistols, set fire to the Clash and gave the Pretenders a sound that continues to endure.
It was, however, Lorre's charismatic leadership and song writing that has secured the band's place in the pantheon of missed opportunities. Controversial, volatile and unapologetic, Inger led from the front, missing no opportunity to cause mayhem at every opportunity. Truly, this is one of the most extraordinary records of the last twenty five years.

KICK AXE 'VICES' CANDY337
 
CANADIAN ROCK HAS always been highly regarded amongst discerning heavy metal fans. In general, the quality of the craftsmanship, songwriting and playing is, in many respects, superior to any other country in the world, lending the acts an air of confidence and accomplishment that has always impressed. Kick Axe were, it must be said, one of the best Canadian hard rock acts that emerged during the early eighties, rubbing shoulders with other hot contenders such as Helix, Coney Hatch and Anvil to name but a few.
The Saskatchewan based five piece were initially formed by two brothers, that's Larry and Brian Gillstrom, together with bassist Victor Langen, all spurred on by the onslaught of British metal acts such as Judas Priest and Iron Maiden. Their intention was to craft a unit that embraced all the cut and thrust of the original genre, while injecting their sound with a melodic and contemporary edge. Signing to CBS Records in Canada the band was then, surprisingly, taken under the wing of Pasha Records in the USA, home of multiplatinum sellers Quiet Riot.
Produced by Spencer Proffer (Quiet Riot, King Kobra, W.A.S.P.) and originally issued in 1984, the album contains a sterling selection of tracks that place the band center stage in the burgeoning mid 80s hard rock renaissance, and give vocalist George Criston room to impress at every turn. As a prime example of 24 Karat Canadian rock, 'Vices' takes no prisoners and lays down the law with focussed intent.

KICK AXE 'WELCOME TO THE CLUB' CANDY338
 
THE MID 80S WAS an extremely healthy time for hard rock and heavy metal. It was also a prime era for Canadian acts, which seemed to be appearing at an alarming rate and all with one thing in common; they were consistently accomplished and uniquely skilful. Several of them were going global, such as Rush, Triumph and April Wine, but it was at a grass roots level that the real impact was being felt, with Kick Axe being at the sharp end of this new wave of maple leaf metal.
Following on the heels of their debut album, Kick Axe got right back in the saddle with a well crafted follow up; 'Welcome To The Club', produced, once again, by Spencer Proffer (Quiet Riot, King Kobra, W.A.S.P.) and his, for this record, assistant Randy Bishop. It was a far more mature recording, exuding a new level of sophistication by bringing in to play the sort of sound being pioneered by artists such as Queensryche and Dio. They didn't, however, take their eyes off the prize, keeping brute force to the fore and all hands on the steering wheel.
Issued in 1985, the record received, quite rightly, solid critical praise as it contains a brace of killer tracks, including 'Feel The Power', 'Hellraisers', 'Make Your Move' and a surprising cover version of the Beatles' 'With A Little Help from My Friends' that features several prominent Canadian musicians, including members of Triumph, Coney Hatch , Toronto, Sheriff, and Lee Aaron.

KICK AXE 'ROCK THE WORLD' CANDY339
 
IT'S OFTEN THE case with artists that they produce their best work when they are most under the most pressure. For Kick Axe this theory proved to be true when they unexpectedly found themselves cast adrift from their American label Pasha Records. It was a tough pill to swallow at first, but with the support of their Canadian label CBS the band lived on to not only fight another day but also to deliver their most accomplished record.
The Vancouver based quintet had made strong inroads into the world of hard rock and metal over the previous years, but had failed to connect on a commercial level. Their brand of tough muscular rock secured them a firm and committed following but various factors had prevented them from developing their unique abilities. The recording of 'Rock The World' showed that they could not only write great material but also refine their style of grandiose hard rock to reach its full potential.
Issued in 1986, the record featured ten superlative tracks; from short sharp red hot rock to captivating widescreen epics such as 'We Still Remember', 'Magic Man' and 'Warrior', all emblazoned with grandiose arrangements yet offering a firm power metal foundation. The production, handled by the band, is crisp and tight, giving no indication that they were forced to record the album on a shoestring budget. Truly, this is one of the rock world's best kept secrets, deserving of a place in any discerning collection.

ROCK CANDY RECORDS Announce Launch Of USA Operation

 
ROCK CANDY RECORDS ANNOUNCES THE LAUNCH OF U.S. OPERATION WITH 4 NEWLY AVAILABLE COMPACT DISC TITLES SET FOR RELEASE NOVEMBER 18, 2016
ALBUM PRE-ORDERS AVAILABLE NOW FOR DELUXE DISC RE-RELEASES FROM SAMMY HAGAR, THE NYMPHS, SALTY DOG AND TYKETTO
RED DISTRIBUTION TO DISTRIBUTE ROCK CANDY RECORDS IN NORTH AMERICA
 
The times they are a-changing, but luckily there remains one constant: great music will live forever and in the catalogue and reissue world that has never been more relevant.
In the land of rock, that’s hard rock, heavy rock, classic rock or, call it what you will rock, no label has won more acclaim and earned respect than Rock Candy Records. Owned and founded by former music journalist and A&R man Derek Oliver, Rock Candy has focused on breathing life into records that deserve a place in the pantheon of rock history.
 
Operating out of London, England for the last eight years, the label specialises in revisiting some of the most important and significant records from the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s.
From Ted Nugent to Rick Springfield, by way of Quiet Riot, Dokken, Billy Squier, Toto, Ratt, R.E.O. Speedwagon, L.A. Guns, Ace Frehley, Hanoi Rocks, and Kansas, the label has re-activated some of the greatest records of the last forty years, buffing them up, and re-positioning them as 24 Karat diamonds. To date, Rock Candy has re-released over 300 titles in Europe.
 
Rock Candy has made a concerted effort to dig deep and unearth a string of lesser known acts and records ripe for reappraisal, albums that have always been hot on the collectors market but overlooked at the time of release or just slipped below the surface through no fault of their own. Records by Montrose (the band who wrote the track that inspired the company’s name), Hughes/Thrall, The Godz, Blue Murder, Smashed Gladys, Girl and Blackfoot) have all been brought back to life for a victory lap. Having conquered Europe, Rock Candy has now set up shop in North America, happily partnering with industry powerhouse RED Distribution.
It’s a match made in rock n’ roll heaven and one that will shortly see the launch of a U.S. offensive, starting with four tantalising titles on Friday, November 18.
 
RED President Bob Morelli comments, “Derek Oliver’s Rock Candy imprint and RED are a perfect fit. Already a leader in unearthing the best in-demand out of print rock titles in Europe, the label joins RED like-minded music strategy in the U.S. As we outpace industry growth in vinyl Market Share, the addition of Rock Candy will help keep that trend alive and we are thrilled to have them on board.”
 
Keep an eye and, especially, an ear out for future offerings, but for now please raise a glass and join us for a toast to the imminent arrival of the following four solid gold classics all released on Friday, November 18. 
These forthcoming CD titles along with limited-edition select merch are available for pre-order now at the newly launched Rock Candy U.S. storefront.

Alice Cooper Alumni BEASTO BLANCO Issue Second 'Self Titled' Album

Artist: 
 
Beasto Blanco, the band fronted by long time Alice Cooper bassist Chuck Garric, will release their self-titled, full length second album, on November 25, 2016 via Rat Pak Records . The effort, which was produced by Ryan Greene (Alice Cooper/Lita Ford/Mr. Big), features 11 new tracks and an amped-up cover version of Alice’s hit song “Feed My Frankenstein” that also features Alice's daughter and fellow Beasto band mate Calico Cooper.

‘Beasto Blanco’ is the follow up to the bands critically acclaimed 2013 release ‘Live Fast, Die Loud’ (Rat Pak Records) which was endorsed by the likes of movie actor Johnny Depp, Iron Maiden drummer Nicko McBrain, producer Bob Ezrin, and many more.
 

Influenced by bands such as White Zombie and Motorhead, Beasto Blanco’s all new 12 song sophomore release is a potent mix of heavy riffs, driving bass and melodic choruses.  “I’m very proud of this release” says Chuck Garric, “This new album showcases the bands evolution as songwriters and our unity as a musical force” and Calico Cooper adds “This record is like a baseball bat to the chest that you want more and more of“.
 
Beasto Blanco’s version of “Feed My Frankenstein” can be heard on “Nights With Alice Cooper” radio show which is syndicated on over 100 stations worldwide and can also be heard at 15,000 AMC, Regal, Cinemark and NCM movie theatres in the United States throughout November.
  
Asked what makes this album so unique, Chuck comments “This album is a clash of elements coming together in an organic implosion of sonic perfection, Beasto Blanco is not about reinventing the wheel, we’re all about giving ’em cool rims!” 
 
Beasto Blanco will embark on a 2016/17 Fall/Winter tour starting in November, that includes a string of U.S headline dates, as well as a soon to be announced arena tour of Europe. They return home to the U.S for another run of headline dates that will conclude with performances on the 2017 Monsters of Rock Cruise in February. OFFICIAL RELEASE DATE IS NOVEMBER 25, 2016

October 20, 2016 - Legendary rockers FOREIGNER have been universally hailed as one of the world's most popular rock acts with 10 multi-platinum albums and 16 Top 30 hits that continue to propel sold-out tours and album sales, now exceeding 75 million. Now they're getting ready to embark on a brand new journey into the literary world with A Foreigner's Tale, the band's first-ever official biography that will be available in various formats, including a limited edition.

Sumptuously illustrated throughout, A Foreigner's Tale tells the story of how FOREIGNER became one of the world's most successful rock acts, and also traces Jones' personal and musical path to forming the band, from his childhood in England in the 1950s through to present day. He tells funny, revealing and intriguing stories, beginning with his remarkable early musical career with Nero and the Gladiators in London, and in France with Sylvie Vartan and Johnny Hallyday in the 1960s (including a tour with the Beatles). From there, he describes working with some great musicians (among them George Harrison and Jimmy Page) before joining Leslie West and then Spooky Tooth in New York ' where Foreigner first took shape. Rare, early, personal, candid, studio and live photographs illuminate this extraordinary story, along with FOREIGNER artwork, memorabilia and Jones' personal record and guitar collection.

Details will be announced in the coming weeks. 
 
Responsible for some of rock and roll's most enduring anthems including 'Juke Box Hero,' 'Cold as Ice,' 'Feels Like The First Time,' 'Urgent,' 'Head Games,' 'Say You Will,' 'Dirty White Boy,' 'Long, Long Way From Home,' and the worldwide #1 hit, 'I Want To Know What Love Is,' FOREIGNER continues to rock the charts more than thirty years into the game. Recent albums like Juke Box Heroes, a new compilation of digitally recorded Foreigner hits, and The Best of Foreigner 4 & More, recorded live from The Borgata, Atlantic City, both entered the Billboard Top 200 chart.  Foreigner also featured strongly in every category in Billboard's recently released 'Greatest of All Time' listing.  Catalog sales often eclipse those of Aerosmith, The Rolling Stones, The Who, Def Leppard, Van Halen and most of their Classic Rock peers (Source: Nielsen SoundScan 2/11/16 - 2/3/16).

Former H.E.A.T Guitarist DAVE DALONE Returns

Artist: 
 
It's a case of out with the old, in with the old as guitarist DAVE DALONE returns to the band he left just a few years ago. 
 
"Ladies and gentlemen. In case you missed it. Please give a big welcome to our “new” guitar player Dave Dalone.
Dave has since the beginning been a huge part of the sound our fans have come to love. With his guitar skills extra ordinaire, combined with excellent songwriting skills, Dave really does not need an introduction. We could not be happier to announce that Dave Dalone is returning to H.E.A.T.
“As soon as Rivers had unfortunately decided to leave, the first name that really came up for the job was Dave. He was there from the beginning and has gone through every success, development and hard work together with us. He really knows what it takes to be the guitar player for H.E.A.T and we’re confident he will once again do a great job taking this ship forward.” - Jimmy Jay
"I'm back in the god damn groove!" - Dave Dalone."
 
The band returns to active duty in the new year for recording sessions for an album due later in 2017.
