STRATOVARIUS Release “Best Of” Album on earMUSIC

Artist: 
 
Stratovarius, one of the most influential, successful and enduring power metal bands in the world, release their long awaited “Best Of” album on May 27th on earMUSIC and Sony Music Entertainment.
 
What started in 1985 under the name Black Water left a trail of 16 studio albums, ten Top 5 chart positions in their native country Finland and more than 40 top chart positions around the globe. Their distinguished mix of fast progressive metal and a melodic approach made symphonic metal originators Stratovarius one of the top names in the world.
 
After a few bumpy steps and stones in the band’s line-up, Stratovarius’ song writing found its peak in their recent studio works “Elysium”, “Nemesis” and “Eternal”. All milestones in sound, creativity and song writing.
 
It happens rarely nowadays, especially in metal, that a band creates one magic song after the other. Stratovarius are surely one of the few exceptions, now presenting 29 hits and fan favourites (and there could have been more!) on their long awaited “Best Of” album, which is released as 2CD Standard Edition, 3CD Limited Edition, and Download.
 
Both CD editions are released in a high quality packaging with liner notes written by exceptional keyboardist Jens Johansson and rare picture material from the band’s private archive. The Limited edition also includes the exclusive 60 minute bonus CD “Live At Wacken 2015”.
 
As a special treat, the “Best Of” features the brand new song “Until The End Of Days” from the current band line up consisting of Timo Kotipelto, Jens Johansson, Mattias Kupainen, Lauri Porra and Rolf Pilve.
 
All hand-picked by the band and adding up to 2 ½ hours of pure Stratovarius bliss, the songs give metal fans and those to be, a great selection of the band’s impressive work, including classics such as “Black Diamond”, “Hunting High And Low” and “Speed Of Light” as well as more recent material such as the most streamed song in the band’s history “Unbreakable” and “Shine In The Dark” from their recent studio album “Eternal”.
 
All songs are remastered by the band’s long-time companion Mika Jussila of Finnvox Studios.
 
Jens Johansson explains: “It's been 20 years since the Episode album, we're all getting older but this stuff sounds as fresh as ever. Could it be that Stratovarius has discovered the fountain of Eternal Youth!? You may feel younger, but we can't actually (legally) promise you'll be younger after listening to this best-of album, but we can guarantee one thing: when you put it through your speakers, it will play Until the End of Days!!
To me it's a testament to the fact that paying attention to song writing and production was expensive, but so worth it. The songs, the sound and the performances really have stood the test of time.”
 
Timo Kotipelto adds: “Wow! 20 years in Stratovarius have passed at the speed of light! I still remember when I joined the band and was happy to do some power metal. And I am very happy to still be able to do it after all these years! This collection of songs is an excellent selections and a cool way to remember the history of the band from the past to the present! I hope you will enjoy it as much as we did while selecting the songs. Rock the Metal!”
 
All Stratovarius albums will be re-released throughout 2016 and 2017, including extensive booklets and a lot of bonus material.

TOBY JEPSON Returns As WAYWARD SONS in 2017

Artist: 
 
News from FRONTIERS RECORDS: Toby Jepson has been a busy man since the hugely successful Little Angels disbanded in 1994. His production wizardry has been in high demand, with acts such as The Virginmarys and The Answer calling on him to produce their albums. He has been instrumental in the rise of James Toseland's band, co-writing and producing two albums with the act who are a growing force on the live circuit and making serious waves in Europe and the US. Add to that several co-writing credits with Katie Melua and you have a great idea of the depth and quality of his songwriting. He has even managed to squeeze in a few solo EPs along the way to keep his faithful fanbase engaged and entertained.
 
Now we are delighted to announce that Toby Jepson is back doing what he is best known and loved for, and that his new band, WAYWARD SONS has signed to our lable, and will commence work on a new album imminently.
 
It is all about songs for Toby. He is not someone to do anything by halves, his heart and soul will be put into producing a record that will make him proud and that we are certain will be greeted with enthusiasm from his loyal fans and the wider rock audience across the world.
 
Let Toby sum it up himself: 'I feel I have unfinished business, stories still left to tell, points to make, noise to create, all of the above...besides, it wasn't a choice, more of a need. My intention is very simple. I want to write about what makes me tick; about what I believe in. Hopefully you will believe in it too. It will be warts and all'.
 
Expect the album in the first half of 2017. In the meantime, check out the band on Facebook here: https://www.facebook.com/waywardsonsbanduk/

Xlrator Media To Screen DUFF McKAGAN'S 'It's So Easy And Other Lies

Artist: 
 
LOS ANGELES (May 23, 2016) – XLrator Media will release Guns N' Roses founding member and bass player Duff McKagan's autobiographical music documentary IT'S SO EASY AND OTHER LIES: LIVE AT THE MOORE, based on his New York Times best-selling memoir, in 50 cities beginning May 26, prior to its LA theatrical release on June 3. Fans can go to itssoeasymovie.com for theater information and to purchase tickets.

Featuring exclusive archival footage, this authorized documentary chronicles Rock and Roll Hall of Fame-inductee McKagan's meteoric rise to fame and fortune, his near-fatal struggles with alcohol and drug addiction, and his remarkable life transformation. The film features interviews with many of the people who took this wild ride, including a constellation of rock stars that rose to fame alongside him, and the people who inspired him to overcome his addictions.  In a voice that is as honest as it is indelibly his own, Duff takes audiences on a harrowing journey through the dark heart of rock '˜n' roll and out the other side.

IT'S SO EASY AND OTHER LIES: LIVE AT THE MOORE was directed and produced by Christopher Duddy, produced by Daniel Zirilli and Steven G. Kaplan, and executive produced by Vision Films' Lise Romanoff, Gato Scatena, Jordan Rosner, Hans Stangl, Birgit Stein and Kati Thomson. Evan Saxon did the theatrical booking.

About Duff McKagan

A founding member of Guns N' Roses and Velvet Revolver—and Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee—Duff McKagan shares the story of his rise to the pinnacle of fame and fortune, his struggles with alcoholism and drug addiction, his personal crash and burn, and his phoenix-like transformation.

In 1984, at the age of twenty, Duff McKagan left his native Seattle—partly to pursue music but mainly to get away from a host of heroin overdoses then decimating his closest group of friends in the local punk scene. In L.A. only a few weeks and still living in his car, he answered a want ad for a bass player placed by someone who identified himself only as 'Slash.' In a few years, Guns N' Roses went on to sell more than 100 million albums worldwide.

In his best-selling autobiography It's So Easy and Other Lies, Duff recounts the band's unlikely trajectory to a string of multiplatinum albums, sold-out stadium concerts, and global acclaim. But that kind of glory can take its toll, and it did—ultimately—on Duff, as well as on the band nd itself. As the group began to splinter, Duff felt that he himself was done, too. But his near death as a direct result of alcoholism proved to be his watershed, the turning point that sent him on a unique path to sobriety and the unexpected choices he has made for himself since.

The band is now busy recording its much anticipated full length album before embarking on a tour throughout Europe, which includes Hellfest Open Air Festival (France), Download Festival (UK), Rock For People (Czech Republic), Azkena Rock Festival (Spain) and the direct support slot for Halestorm in Denmark, France and Switzerland.
 
'We are delighted to be signing with Frontiers!' the band commented. 'They have an incredible roster of artists that have influenced us musically and it's an absolute honour to be associated with them. We can't wait to get our new music out! We pride ourselves on starting this band with a do-it-yourself approach to managing our career and have been meticulous in assembling a team that will push RavenEye to the masses. We've chosen Frontiers because it is a label that truly cares about their artists and together we intend to make an album that's going to kickstart the beginning of another exciting new year for us!'
 
2016 is definitely the year of the Raven! Look for their debut album to hit in September 2016!

Between Red & Blue see’s the debut release from Swedish melodic rockers Violet Janine. The band have only been around for a short while, but have quickly stired up some attention in their home country, and it wasn’t long after that the band had penned down 9 tracks and entered the home studio of Daniel Palmqvist, who’s also the lead guitarist of the band and welknown inside the melodic/aor comunitee for his various contributions musically in other bands etc.
 
The band also quick got in contact with bringing in outside guest vocalist to be featured onto the album in form of the tracks, So Much More, featuring legendary Black Sabbath vocalist Tony Martin who also wrote the track for the album and Pontus Snibb of Bonafide on the track, Down On My Knees. There’s been made two music videos for the tracks which can be seen in the youtube links further below.
 
Lead Vocalist Janine Nyman brings to the recordings a powerful raw voice, like an unshaped diamond, ready to sparkle brighter than the sun with the first listenning of her voice. Sparkling along with her is also the eminent guitar playing by Daniel Palmqvist, which also have captured all this in the recording of the album. And with Basse Blyberg, Ian Brunnberg & Mano Lewys to round up the rest of the remaining band, the band is to embark into a bright future.
 
For future references the band plans on touring in support of the debut album and along the way inspiring with new ideas, one of these are to introduce a fragrance which is significant with the name of the band and will be used when the band is on stage live, for the audience to enjoy.

PARIS Return With 'The World Outside' on MRR July 1

Artist: 
 
MelodicRock Records is excited to announce a new partnership with French melodic rock band PARIS. The band’s new album ‘The World Outside’, will be released via MRR on July 1 in two configurations – the regular edition and a limited Special Edition featuring 2 exclusive bonus tracks.
 
This follows the band’s debut album ‘Only One Life’ (produced by Alessandro Del Vecchio) which was released in 2013.
 
PARIS are:
Frédéric Dechavanne: Lead & Backing Vocals, Keyboards
Sébastien Montet: Lead & Rhythm Guitars
 
For album number two, the PARIS story hasn't changed: it's still the story of two friends since the youngest of age, growing up in the suburbs of Paris and fancying the same kind of music in the second half of the eighties! Life separated the pair geographically, but music kept them united.
 
‘The World Outside’ is expertly produced and mastered by Steve Newman - further entwining himself in the PARIS story. The British melodic rock singer/producer had added background vocals on the debut and repeats that role here, adding his voice once again to the rich harmonies on this album.
 
The result is the perfect mix of the band’s pleasing AOR debut, with the harmony drenched trademark that is found on the NEWMAN records.
Rounding out this album’s lineup is Steve's English teammates David Bartlett (bass) and Rob McEwen (drums), ensuring the best possible presentation for these songs.
And because the PARIS story is all based on friendship, Seb made sure that Robert Säll was involved again on one song, like on the debut and Alessandro Del Vecchio adds backing vocals on one track.
 
Frédéric says: “We're still writing songs together and we have a bunch of great tunes waiting in the vault, either for a next PARIS album or for any band or artist that requires new material.” 
 
Check out the first preview track from the album, the song Kitesurfing!
 

 
Credits:
Frédéric Dechavanne: Lead Vocals, Keyboards, Additional Background Vocals on ‘End Of My World’, ‘Looking For You’, ‘This Broken Heart’ & ‘Stronger’
Sébastien Montet: All Guitars, Keyboards, Additional Background Vocals on ‘Don’t Say A Word’, ‘In My Eyes’ & ‘When You Find Love’
 
Additional Musicians:
Steve Newman: Background Vocals, Additional Guitar On ‘Unreachable’
David Bartlett: Bass, Background Vocals
Rob McEwen: Drums, Percussion
Special Guests:
Robert Säll: guitar (main solo) on ‘When You Find Love’
Alessandro Del Vecchio: Background vocals on ‘End Of My World’
Jean-Marc Perz: Additional Background Vocals on ‘Don’t Say A Word’, ‘In My Eyes’ & ‘When You Find Love’
 
Produced & Mastered By Steve Newman

09. Haunted
10. Unreachable
 
11. Stronger (Special Edition - Bonus Track)
12. Don’t Say A Word (Special Edition - Bonus Track)
 
 
Frédéric and Sébastien met in the suburbs of Paris when they were still little kids, later in High School they discovered their common interest in AOR, Melodic Rock and Hard Rock.
In 1985 they founded their first band together and started to write their own songs inspired by the multi-platinum albums and concert visits of some of the most successful acts of the genre during their heyday in the late 80s, Def Leppard and Bon Jovi. The guys continue to work on their own material during the next couple of years, but life had other plans for the two friends, so from 1993 on their band and song writing activities were put on hold for almost two decades.
 
In 2010 the two friends, who always kept in touch through the years, rediscovered the joy of making music together. New technologies paved the way for their revitalized musical collaboration with Frédéric now living in Germany, and they eventually recorded a demo album with 11 newly songs in 2011.
 
The PARIS debut “Only One Life” was recorded with the help of an international line-up of studio musicians, resulting in a collection of truly catchy Melodic Rock tunes.
Now PARIS is ready to discover ‘The World Out There’ and take their reputation for catchy melodic rock to the next level.

Faithsedge have released a lyric video for the song ‘Never A Day’, taken from the band’s upcoming new album ‘Restoration’Watch the video here:

Giancarlo's songwriting approach mixed with each members experience and skills takes the album to new heights.

TEN Return to the 'Battlefield' June 17 with Compilation Release

Artist: 

TEN signed to Rocktopia Records back in 2014, in a similar fashion to their one-two release of their much lauded debut and follow-up 'Name of the Rose' in a 6 month period back in 1996, 'Albion' and 'Isla De Muerta' were released in November 2014 and May 2015 respectively. Both albums gained highly positive reviews with Gaetano Di Falco's wonderful art making striking covers.

2015 also saw the release of the 'Dragon And Saint George' EP which contained 3 exclusive bonus tracks.

With 'Albion' now completely sold out it seemed a great idea to collect all the Ten songs from their Rocktopia Records period - including all the Japanese bonus tracks and exclusive EP tracks - onto one Limited Edition double CD release (500 copies only) and sell for the price of a single CD.

As well as Ten fans, hard rock fans who have not previously bought their albums should hopefully be tempted to check them out with such a Value For Money release.

This new collection is titled 'Battlefield' and once again has a wonderful exclusive cover by Gaetano Di Falco.

Release date - June 17, 2016

Rock Candy Records Latest - DOKKEN & TRAPEZE

Artist: 

The following four new Rock Candy titles are all available now from www.rockcandyrecords.com for a discounted price including postage to anywhere in the world for the next two weeks ending on 29th of May.
 
ROUGH CUTT 'S/T' CANDY292
 
'DURING THE EARLY 80's, hard rock was fast turning into a red hot commodity. Los Angeles appeared to be at the epicentre of the movement, with a number of acts getting primed and ready for big success and nearly all uniformly subjected to shuffling line-ups and temporary arrangements. So it comes as no surprise to learn that Rough Cutt's formation had mutated with the help of a number of serious players, including future members of RATT, Giuffria and future Ozzy Osbourne guitarist Jake E. Lee.
Mentored by Ronnie James Dio, who recorded demos for the band, and subsequently managed by his wife Wendy Dio, the band secured a coveted deal with label giant Warner Brother's Records. With a settled line up, featuring vocalist Paul Shortino and impressive guitarist Amir Derakh, they set about recording their debut album with British producer Tom Allom (Def Leppard, Judas Priest, Y&T), in their native Los Angeles.
The record took on the hallmarks of a seriously exciting statement, bristling with the sort of riffs and hooks that launched a thousand imitators as the years rolled on. With crisp, clean production and expertly crafted songs such as 'Dreamin' Again', 'Black Widow' and 'Take Her' setting out their stall in majestic fashion. Released in 1984, the album surprisingly failed to connect commercially, despite touring the North America with Dio, yet secured the band enough of a following to record an equally revered follow-up.'
 
SPECIAL DELUXE COLLECTOR'S EDITION, FULLY REMASTERED SOUND, 16 PAGE FULL COLOUR BOOKLET, 3,500 WORD ESSAY ABOUT THE MAKING OF THE ALBUM WITH NEW BAND INTERVIEWS AND ENHANCED ARTWORK. TRACK LISTING: 1. TAKE HER 2. PIECE OF MY HEART 3. NEVER GONNA DIE 4. DREAMIN' AGAIN 5. CUTT YOUR HEART OUT 6. BLACK WIDOW 7. YOU KEEP BREAKING MY HEART 8. KIDS WILL ROCK 9. DRESSED TO KILL 10. SHE'S TOO HOTT
 
ROUGH CUTT WANTS YOU! CANDY293
 
'FOR ROUGH CUTT their career was, in retrospect, all about missed opportunity. As one of the first L.A. based bands to excite the early eighties scene, and signed to label behemoths Warner Brothers Records, they were expected to feed the flames of a growing interest in hard rock. Their debut album was, in turn, feted and praised, but failed, despite being championed by Ronnie James Dio, to connect commercially with the record buying public. Pretty soon, they were being overtaken by fellow contenders such as Quiet Riot, M'tley Cr'e and Dokken.
Despite the lack of achievement, the band was ushered back into the studio to record a follow up album, 'Rough Cutt Wants You!' issued in 1986. In contrast to their debut, it was a record of stylistic advancement, showcasing the band in a more mature light, something more befitting their real ability. Produced by one of the truly great producers of the era Jack Douglas (Aerosmith, Cheap Trick, Starz), and recorded in their home town of Los Angeles, the sound is less abrasive and far more focussed, relying on great arrangements and sublime rhythms.
Tracks such as 'Don't Settle For Less', 'Double Trouble', 'Bad Reputation' and, especially, 'The Night Cries Out (For You)' finds them casting their net wider by introducing a sophistication beyond the regular meat 'n potatoes that you might expect from such a hard rocking collective.'
 
SPECIAL DELUXE COLLECTOR'S EDITION, FULLY REMASTERED SOUND, 12 PAGE FULL COLOUR BOOKLET, 3,500 WORD ESSAY ABOUT THE MAKING OF THE ALBUM WITH NEW BAND INTERVIEWS AND ENHANCED ARTWORK. TRACK LISTING: 1. ROCK THE USA 2. BAD REPUTATION 3. DON'T SETTLE FOR LESS 4. HOT 'N' HEAVY 5. TAKE A CHANCE 6. WE LIKE IT LOUD 7. DOUBLE TROUBLE 8. YOU WANNA BE A STAR 9. LET 'EM TALK 10. THE NIGHT CRIES OUT (FOR YOU)
 
  
 
HENRY PAUL BAND 'GREY GHOST' CANDY323
 
'THE ETERNAL APPEAL of southern rock lies mainly in its integrity and righteous sense of belonging. It's a music that had been condensed from folk, blues and traditional country, then shot through with electric rock 'n roll. Lynyrd Skynyrd and the Allman Brothers Band were the kings of the genre, each giving birth to a new breed of groups who built their reputation on those very foundations.
The Outlaws, a fiery guitar driven ensemble from Tampa, Florida took the same blue print and blazed their way from the clubs and bars to headline status in some of the largest venues in the US. Henry Paul was an integral member of the band as a songwriter and vocalist, until he struck out on his own in 1979. Enlisting the help of several gifted friends, he formed his own band and signed an impressive contract with Atlantic Records, going on to craft one of the best southern rock albums of the 70s, a record that has continued to garner a dedicated following and much critical acclaim.
Crammed full of well written and arranged songs, including 'Cross Fire' and 'So Long', the album's unquestionable highlight is the title track itself, a poignant epic written very much as a tribute to Lynyrd Skynyrd and in particular front man Ronnie Van Zant. It is a track that has it all; heart wrenching lyrics, a brilliant arrangement and a lengthy guitar solo in the finest southern rock tradition. Truly a milestone in the genre's long and proud history.'
 
SPECIAL DELUXE COLLECTOR'S EDITION, FULLY REMASTERED SOUND, 12 PAGE FULL COLOUR BOOKLET, 3,500 WORD ESSAY ABOUT THE MAKING OF THE ALBUM WITH NEW HENRY PAUL INTERVIEW AND ENHANCED ARTWORK. TRACK LISTING: 1. SO LONG 2. CROSS FIRE 3. FOOLIN' 4. WOOD WIND 5. GREY GHOST 6. I DON'T NEED YOU NO MORE 7. LONELY DREAMER 8. ONE-NIGHT STANDS 9. YOU REALLY KNOW (WHAT I MEAN) 10. ALL I NEED
 
VAN WILKS 'BOMBAY TEARS' CANDY319
 
'IF TEXAN MUSIC has a 'sound' then Van Wilks would be the perfect example. You may never have heard of him, but that's okay, as he never really intended to be place himself on a pedestal. Van's debut album has become something of a cult artefact amongst aficionados of the obscure, ignored at the time of release but, over time, it has been slowly picking up a reputation as one of the most intelligent and compelling releases of the era.
'Bombay Tears' is not blues rock, jazz rock, hard rock or acoustic rock but a wonderfully addictive combination of all those styles and more. It emits a certain laid back vibe that provides a warm, comforting backdrop to what you might imagine Texas to sound like if it could talk. The beauty of this album is its shifting, yet widescreen soundscape, kitted out with a brace of well written and arranged songs that, although stylistically divergent, have a common thread, from full on hard rock to hard-nosed boogie and even jazz.
Oh, and in case you don't know, Van is a renowned blues guitarist, carving out a reputation that has even caught the ears of master craftsmen from  the Lone Star State, including ZZ Top's Billy Gibbons. Originally released in 1980 and produced by John Stronach (Joe Walsh, Sammy Hagar and REO Speedwagon), this first time on CD release has been bolstered by the addition of the rare 1982 independently pressed 'Boystown' EP.'

BANSHEE - 'Race Against Time + Cry In The Night' Reissue on Divebomb Records

Artist: 
 
Divebomb Records are excited to announce the reissue of BANSHEE Race Against Time + Cry In The Night 2xCD set on 7/15/2016.

Pre-ordering has begun here

[]

Rising from the Midwestern hard rock scene of the mid-‘80s, Banshee was a band that balanced traditional heavy metal with melodic hard rock with winning results. Featuring former members of such underground Kansas City groups as Granmax and Frodo, BANSHEE was fronted by Tommy Lee Flood, a vocalist that many have compared to Ronnie James Dio in his range and power. A few years after forming, BANSHEE self-released their Cry in the Night EP, selling so many copies independently that both Metal Blade and Atlantic Records courted the young act.

BANSHEE ended up signing on with A&R legend Jason Flom at Atlantic Records, but not before licensing the EP to Metal Blade, in turn bringing international attention to the group. 1989 found the quartet releasing their debut album, Race Against Time, an 11-song collection that focused on their more melodic tendencies. Despite MTV’s Headbangers Ball giving the band’s “Shoot Down The Night” video healthy airplay, behind-the-scenes drama lead to Banshee being dropped by Atlantic Records. The group would break up in 1993 after releasing their Take ‘Em By Storm that year on their own Snowblind label.

Now, over 30 years since BANSHEE formed, Divebomb Records is excited to bring you the Race Against Time + Cry In The Night 2 CD set with each release pressed on its own CD. The remastered collection will feature reversible cover art as well as archival BANSHEE photos from throughout their career. In addition, there’s a new interview with guitarist Terry Dunn done by NoEcho.net’s Carlos Ramirez especially for this reissue. With both titles long out of print, this is your chance to own two pieces of melodic hard rock gold all over again.

EDGE OF FOREVER Sign on to Frontiers


Frontiers Music Srl is pleased to announce the signing of EDGE OF FOREVER to the label for a multi-album deal!
 
Originally formed in 2002, Edge Of Forever released their first album, 'Feeding The Fire' in 2004 which was produced by the late Marcel Jacob (ex-Malmsteen, Talisman). Just a few months later, the band was already working on a new album with producer Bobby Barth (Axe, Blackfoot) in New Orleans. The collaboration led to 'Let The Demon Rock'n'Roll,' which came out about one year after the debut album. In 2005 the band saw a change of personnel, leaving only Alessandro Del Vecchio and Francesco Jovino from the original line-up. Alessandro then took on the lead vocal spot and guitarist Walter Caliaro and bassist Nik Mazzucconi (Ian Paice, Carmine Appice) joined the band.
 
In 2010, with the new lineup operating like a well oiled machine, Edge of Forever released their third record entitled 'Another Paradise'. The album was once again very well received and Alessandro Del Vecchio's reputation as producer started to grow steadily. While Francesco was stepping into the metal world with U.D.O. and a short tenure with ACCEPT (now he plays drums with Primal Fear), Alessandro Del Vecchio started to tour with artists like Ian Paice, Glenn Hughes, Bernie Marsden, and Carmine Appice and also continuing to work in the studio. In 2011, Alessandro signed on with Frontiers Music Srl to produce and be part of the come-back of the legendary hard rock act Hardline. Again with his pal Francesco Jovino on drums, Hardline released 'Danger Zone' in 2012 while the video for the single from the album, 'Fever Dreams' reached almost 1 million views on YouTube.
 
Alessandro's collaboration with Frontiers over the course of about 5 years has given birth to amazing records like Revolution Saints (Deen Castronovo, Jack Blades, Doug Aldrich), Sunstorm (with Joe Lynn Turner), Fergie Frederiksen's last album 'Any Given Moment', Resurrection Kings (Craig Goldy, Vinny Appice, Sean McNabb, Chas West) and many more, plus writing and playing for artists like Place Vendome, Find Me (featuring Robbie Lablanc of Blanc Faces), First Signal (featuring Harry Hess of Harem Scarem), Level 10 (featuring Russell Allen and Mat Sinner), and Toby Hitchcock among others.
 
Now it's time for Alessandro and his guys to step out on their own and show the world what they're capable of! 'I'm very honored to have my own band Edge Of Forever signed to the big Frontiers family,' says Alessandro Del Vecchio. 'It's been a few years now that I've worked with Serafino and for some time we have been talking about a record with me on vocals, which couldn't be with anyone but with my guys. Francesco, Nik and Walter have been with me already on a few albums I released through Frontiers, but this time is gonna be different. It's our baby and our primal need of creation. We are entering the studio this summer and I promise we will deliver our best songs and I will top my productions with a bombastic and epic sound. In addition to the new album, we decided to allow Frontiers to re-release our previous albums - which I'm gonna remaster with bonus tracks - for all digital platforms. I guess it's time for people to listen to the out-takes of our previous albums with our friends Jeff Scott Soto Official and Bobby Barth. This made the deal even more attractive for us. Now it's our turn to say something and give Frontiers our best album so far! I feel and we feel more confident than ever in what we can do. Years of working in the Champions League of Rock'n'Roll forged us as better musicians. I honestly can't wait. After 5 years of amazing music with Frontiers, I'm excited to do something again with the band that started it all for me. Who's Luckier Than Me?''
 
Frontiers plans to release EDGE OF FOREVER new album in early 2017.
 
EDGE OF FOREVER:
 
Alessandro Del Vecchio: vocals, keyboards
Walter Caliaro: guitars
Nik Mazzucconi: bass
Francesco Jovino: drums

Q5 Declare a 'New World Order' July 8

Artist: 

Frontiers Music Srl is excited to announce the release of the anticipated third album from Q5, entitled 'New World Order' on July 8th.
 
You can pre-order the album now on both Amazon.com: http://radi.al/NewWorldOrderAmazon  and iTunes: http://radi.al/NewWorldOrderiTunes
 
Q5 was formed in 1983, comprised of members of two popular Seattle bands: vocalist Jonathan K and guitarist (plus famous guitar tremolo inventor) Floyd Rose from The C.O.R.E. and Rick Pierce (guitar), Evan Sheeley (bass) and Gary Thompson (drums) from TKO. The band released its first album, "Steel The Light" (on Music for Nations) in 1984, receiving immediate worldwide critical acclaim, and landing them touring spots with Twisted Sister, Y&T and Lita Ford. The success of "Steel The Light" led them to eventually sign with Polygram/Squawk for their 1985 sophomore release, "When the Mirror Cracks". Due to personal differences, the original lineup dissolved shortly after this release.
 
In 2014, Q5 was asked to perform at Sweden Rock Festival, a performance that the band had agreed would be a "one off" show, but at the completion of the performance, it was obvious that this was not an ending, but merely a beginning. Upon returning to Seattle, The band secured drummer Jeffrey McCormack (former Heir Apparent, Fifth Angel) and guitarist Kendall Bechtel (former Fifth Angel) and began rehearsing formally as "Q5". The band's relaunch debuted at the ROCK You To HELL Festival in Athens, Greece followed by a headlining performance in Cyprus. The band then returned to Seattle to begin work on music for a new album. Kendall Bechtel, however, was unable to stay with the band due to personal reasons, so the band secured guitar virtuoso Dennis Turner to complete the lineup.
 
So, while the band's debut album, "Steel The Light " continues to grow in popularity all over the world, the fans are writing from all corners of the globe, eagerly inquiring about the next chapter in the Q5 story. That chapter begins NOW. With their new lineup solidified, and a new album slated for release, Q5 is poised to take its rightful place again in the hard rock/heavy metal hierarchy!
