First-Ever Official Biography Published As Part Of FOREIGNER'S 40th Anniversary Celebration


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.
Produced in conjunction with Rocket 88 Books, it tells the story of FOREIGNER in the words of founder, guitarist and producer Mick Jones. It will only be sold via where fans can register their interest in the book NOW and be sure of getting a copy when it is published in 2017. Registration is not a commitment to buy, but will ensure fans get the information on the book first, a pre-order discount and the chance to have their name printed in the book.
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.
Coinciding with the release of A Foreigner's Tale, FOREIGNER--Mick Jones (lead guitar), Kelly Hansen (lead vocals), Jeff Pilson (bass, vocals), Tom Gimbel (rhythm guitar, sax, vocals), Michael Bluestein (keyboards), Bruce Watson (guitar) and Chris Frazier (drums)'will head out on a world tour throughout 2017 in celebration of their 40 years as a recording, touring band. 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

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.

Introducing BRYAN COLE, MRR Adds More New Talent

New artists are what will sustain and grow this scene. It is essential to develop and expose new talent and despite the challenges of doing such, MelodicRock Records continues to bring the best undiscovered artists to the ever hungry fans of all things melodic.
On November 25, one of Pittsburgh’s most gifted singer/guitarists will make his mark. Please make room in your music collections for BRYAN COLE and his sensational debut album ‘Sands Of Time’.
Melodic rock fans have been in need of an album just like this – the classic sound of bands like Giant, Bad English, Survivor and both Pride Of Lions and Brett Walker – the latter two artists both included in the material that comprises Sands Of Time.
Bryan Cole - "I have to say that I took a lot of time and care in recording my debut album ‘Sands Of Time’ and I knew I would go through the same process in finding the right label home for my music. I'm proud and honored to be a part of the MRR family and all the talented acts on their roster. Andrew McNeice and Melodic Rock Records, truly cares about their artists and I'm humbled and honored that they gave me a chance to make MY music and give me the extraordinary opportunities that the label offers Sands of Time is truly the first album project that is so honest, so pure and so Me! Every musical and vocal influence from my earliest memory, through my adult life is shown ever so clearly in this record and I'm so proud of it!"
The whole idea for the record came from Bryan recording a demo of the classic Brett Walker/Carl Dixon song ‘More Than a Memory.’ The feedback was unanimous, with Bryan receiving very positive and encouraging responses.
“I knew I was on to something very special. I began searching and writing material with the hopes of finding enough great songs to record a EP or full length album. During the course of this grueling process, I had experienced many personal and life changing experiences. The loss of several loved ones had brought me to my lowest point emotionally and I felt I couldn't go on being creative and making music. Out of the blue, I received a message from an old friend in Nashville, TN that heard my demo and had an idea of the perfect person to hook me up with.”
That person would be none other than Jim Peterik from Survivor. Bryan grew up listening to Survivor, Journey and many other classic AOR/Melodic Rock groups of the late 70's and 80's, so working with Jim was a dream come true. Jim Peterik contributed four amazing songs to the project that followers of Jim will recognize quickly.
Bryan continued to look for more songs that fit his style and lyrically had the right substance that he was looking for. Songwriters Joie Scott, Larry King and Steven McClintock, graciously lent their writing talents to the project. Bryan decided to record a second great Brett Walker song and to complete the album, and together with his long time writing partner DJ Gleason the duo wrote two songs to round out the album.
In conclusion, Bryan elaborates on the album recording process: “In addition to all of the great songwriters, I wanted to bring in the right group of musicians to help in the recording process. My first pick was former Giant bassist Mike Brignardello. I've been a Giant fan from their first record and they have always been a major influence on my music. I contacted Mike through a mutual friend and he jumped at the chance to be a part of the record.
The recording took approximately one whole year, with recording all of the tracks in my home studio in Pittsburgh, PA and Mike Brignardello recording his tracks in Nashville. I then appointed my longtime friend and mix engineer Doug Kasper, to mix the record at Tonic Recording Studios in Pittsburgh. Throughout this process, I began friendly conversations online with various industry folks including Andrew McNeice of MelodicRock Records. I had expressed interest in finding the right label home upon completion of the record. I just had a great feeling that MRR, was going to be the right fit. I was right! After submitting some rough mixes, I was offered a record deal with MelodicRock Records!
The label appointed Nello Dell'Omo to do the artwork and design and JK Northrup for final mastering. Both are absolutely brilliant! I'm honored to have worked with them.
To sum things up... Sands Of Time is a true inside look of who I really am. The musical and vocal influences that helped to mold me into the artist I am today and who I will continue to learn from. The happiness and sadness, as well as the struggles. They are all grains of sand that make me who I am.....the beginning.”
‘Sands Of Time’ track listing:
01. Burning With A Reason (J.Peterik, J.Van Zant)
02. Hard To Find An Easy Way (B.Walker)
03. When Love Breaks (S.Mcclintock)
04. What Kind Of Fool (J.Peterik)
05. Turn To Me (J.Peterik)
06. I’ll Be There For You (B.Cole, D.Gleeson)
07. We Lost The Fire (B.Cole, D.Gleeson)
08. More Than A Memory (B.Walker, C.Dixon)
09. Is It Really Love (S.Mcclintock)
10. Courage To Love (J.Peterik)
11. Nothing Matters (J.Scott, L.King)
It’s time to take a look into ‘Sands Of Time’ with the lead track ‘We Lost The Fire’, one of Bryan’s original tunes, showing his guitar and vocal skills off perfectly.
The album is released November 25 via MRR.

Born in a middle class suburb of Pittsburgh, PA, Bryan began his love of music at age five. At age seven, he performed his first show in front of Ten-Thousand people! He has not stopped since....
His early influence of great vocalists became evident, when he received his first Journey record "Infinity" and began focusing on groups like Journey, Survivor, Foreigner and Boston, to name a few. In addition, he was introduced to R&B, Blues and Country music. He loved and respected all genres of music.
Bryan fronted many local and regional bands before landing his first record deal. He performed with many top grossing acts including Ted Nugent, Quiet Riot, Eddie Money, Charlie Daniels Band, Reb Beach (Winger, Whitesnake), Kip Winger and many others.
Bryan has also devoted his career to many charities including The Paralyzed Veterans, The Veterans Wheelchair Games, The Animal Rescue League, The Mario Lemeuix Foundation, The Obediah/Cole Foundation, Fallen Officers and Music Cares.
His style of Melodic Rock, is strongly evident in his debut album "Sands Of Time" that has just been completed and set for worldwide release on Melodic Rock Records. Sands Of Time features eleven fantastic songs. Four of those songs written by Jim Peterik: the founding member of the rock group Survivor.
Bryan Cole is also a seasoned Record Producer and Mixing Engineer. He enjoys helping both aspiring and established artists achieve their fullest potential.

AOR Heaven Announces November Titles - WHITE WIDDOW & BONEYARD DOG


Australian Hard Rockers WHITE WIDDOW will return with their fourth album “Silhouette” on AOR Heaven on November 25, just right in time for their performance at H.e.a.t. Festival in Ludwigsburg on the following weekend!

New on the AOR Heaven label is the Irish Classic Rock/Blues Rock band BONEYARD DOG with their debut album “Bluesbound Train”. This group consists of German/Italian Rock singer Rob Mancini (Hotwire, Crush, Rob Mancini Band & Scar For Life), guitarist Davy Kerrigan, former Rainbow keyboard player Tony Carey and American drummer Ron Wikso (David Lee Roth, Foreigner any many others). Guest performers include Marc Lynn (Gotthard) on bass and John Pratt from UK rockers Firefly on backing vocals.

White Widdow - Silhouette

Release date: 25.11.2016
Advance video:

  Formed in Melbourne, Australia in 2008 and centered around the Millis brothers Jules (Vocals) & Xavier (Keyboards) with Guitar virtuoso Enzo Almanzi. Raised on a healthy diet of 80’s Arena Rock and influenced by artists such as Survivor, Dokken, Night Ranger, White Sister & Giuffria.

In 2010 White Widdow stormed onto the Melodic Rock scene across the globe with the release of their self titled debut album, filled with swirling keyboards, blistering guitar playing and big choruses. The release of the debut was met by the press with rave reviews making it into Classic Rock Magazine's top 10 AOR albums for 2010.  Hot on the heels of their debut, White Widdow quickly returned with their follow up release “Serenade” in September 2011. "Serenade" was heaped with praise by the press as one of the best albums in the genre of 2011, gaining 9/10 in both Classic Rock and Powerplay magazines and receiving a 94% on the coveted website

In support of "Serenade", White Widdow hit the road playing festivals and headlining club shows throughout Europe which saw them tour through Switzerland, Germany, Sweden, Italy, Greece and England. Along the way performing at HEAT Festival (Germany) and Firefest (UK). This was followed in 2012 with a full tour of the UK as support band to English melodic rock band TEN.

After the unfortunate death of drummer George Kristy in 2013 and the departure of original bass player Trent Wilson, the Millis brothers and Almanzi regrouped with a rejuvenated new line up, featuring Ben Webster on Bass and Noel Tenny on Drums. The new line up released their third album “Crossfire” in late 2014, the album was met with much critical and fan acclaim receiving 8/10 in Classic Rock magazine, 9/10 in Powerplay magazine, 9/10 in Sweden Rock Magazine and 93% from

In support of “Crossfire”, White Widdow returned to tour the UK and Greece, as well as performing in Spain for the first time in 2015.

In early 2016 the Millis brothers began writing for what would become White Widdow’s fourth album “Silhouette”, setting out to capture the mid to late 80’s AOR sound, even more so than on previous White Widdow albums. The Millis brothers also teaming up with Almanzi, Tenny and Webster for some slightly more hard edged songs. The resulting album “Silhouete”, proving to be the best representation of the White Widdow sound so far, pure 80’s styled AOR, straight from the heart.

Boneyard Dog - Bluesbound Train

Release date: 25.11.2016
Advance video:

Boneyard Dog is an Irish Classic/Blues Rock Band founded in 2015 and the brainchild of German/Italian Rock Singer Rob Mancini (Hotwire, Crush, Rob Mancini Band & Scar For Life) and Irish Blues guitar hero Davy Kerrigan.

Added to the line-up in early 2016 was American rock drummer Ron Wikso, an established artist known for his recording and touring work with some of the best musicians and known entertainers in the world including Cher, Richie Sambora (Bon Jovi), Foreigner, David Lee Roth (Van Halen), The Storm, Gregg Rolie (Santana/Journey), Eddie Money, CCR (Creedence Clearwater Revisited), Player (featuring Ronn Moss & Peter Beckett), Randy Meisner (the Eagles), Denny Laine (Paul McCartney & Wings/The Moody Blues), Dave Amato (REO Speedwagon/Ted Nugent/Jimmy Barnes), Michael Monarch (Steppenwolf), Dave Meniketti (Y&T), George Burns, Sammy Davis Jr., Peggy Lee and many others.

Half way through the writing of the debut album, Mancini contacted Tony Carey, former keyboarder of Richie Blackmore’s Rainbow. Carey played on the classic albums ‘Rising’ and ‘On Stage’, in the Rainbow line-up including Ronnie James Dio, Cozy Powell, Jimmy Bain and Ritchie Blackmore, touring the world for 2 years. He has recorded and released over 40 records, and produced records by John Mayall, Chris Norman, David Knopfler, Joe Cocker, and Peter Maffay (Germany’s top-selling rock artist). He has done several film scores and published well over 1,000 songs. Initially planned as a guest keyboarder on one of the tracks, Carey was impressed by the material and offered to fill the slot as keyboarder on the entire album.

Staying true to their roots in rock’n’roll music, a style all members are involved in for over a decade, the band also implemented their love and passion for blues into the project. With a lot of experience, compassion and inspiration the foundations are set for a new Classic Rock album that will find many new friends and listeners.

Mancini’s and Kerrigan’s song writing are combining harmonies, killer riffs and solos as well as creative lyrics to create an outstanding work of art.

Boneyard Dog recorded their debut album ‘Bluesbound Train’ between March and September 2016 at Total Control Studio Austin/Texas and GMG Studio ONE in Donegal/Ireland. The album was produced, mixed and mastered by Rob Mancini. In August 2016 the band subsequently signed to German label AOR Heaven.
Outside the music business, the band is involved in philanthropy, having created the Boneyard Foundation, a foundation benefitting victims of motorcycle accidents or their immediate families. The bands proceeding from the track ‘Lonely Road’ featuring Marc Lynn (Gotthard) and the accompanying video will go towards the Boneyard Foundation.

STEEVI JAIMZ Records Special Version of Classic Song

To celebrate the 30th Anniversary of Living Without You....
Original Tigertailz vocalist Steevi Jaimz has teamed up with friend and fellow Crash KO band mate Phil Vokins - Formerly of (ex Black Sabbath drummer Bill Ward's Max Havoc, Persian Risk, UK AOR'sters Strangeways and Tyrant ). 

And together have recorded a special, one-off 30th Anniversary version of his classic Tigertailz song Living Without You.
This version of the song, featuring Steevi, Phil, Chris Laney, Anders Ringman and Dave Draper. Was originally recorded at Platform Studios, Sweden. At the recording of Steevi's My Private Hell album sessions in 2007. And was recently finished with producer Dave Draper at Tower Studios UK.

"It's been re-recorded and re-released many times. But this is the first time I have done it since writing it. And it has never sounded anything like this. We've stripped the song back to basics and turned it around. And what we have, is the song at it's melodic best. How it would have sounded without screaming guitars. And how I imagined it to sound when I originally wrote it. And because of who I wrote it about, it's very sentimental and personal to me. Basically, it's been given the grown up 2016 treatment". It will be made available to download on the usual sites. Spotify, itunes etc... The pair will also record an album as a special project through AOR Blvd records next year.

The Legendary ARTI TISI Archives Are Coming to MelodicRock Records

I’ve been chasing this one for a long time…
MelodicRock Records is thrilled to announce the signing one of the best collections of unreleased music to ever be left aside in the vaults, for a deal that will finally see this classic melodic hard rock material released to fans that have been demanding it for two decades.
Only one artist could possibly gather all these names into their recording career: Joe Lynn Turner, Tony Bruno, Al Pitrelli, Al Greenwood, A.J. Pero, Ian McDonald, Mark Hitt, Lincoln Schleifer, Tony Harnell, Bob Held, Phil Woods, Chuck Bonafante and even more…
The man that was once considered to replace Lou Gramm when he left Foreigner, a role he could have pulled off with ease.
Who else than ARTI TISI!
The Arti Tisi legend goes back many years. To the mid-to-late 80s, into the 90s…. Arti Tisi was one of the finest vocalists and go-to guys in the world. But why isn’t he the mega-star that the material demonstrates he should be?
It’s a mixture of bad timing, bad luck and bad record labels. Best that Arti explains himself:
I would never change a thing, not a single thing. I am so fortunate to have played with so many talents and I feel they were the reason the music was great and the reason I tried to always push myself to keep up. I think the thing is that a lot of the musicians I played with were trying to make a living in other bands. Talents like Al Pitrelli or Tony Bruno or John O’Reilly, they were so fantastic, so in demand. Denny McDermott who was on with Donald Fagen on drums and Mark Hitt on guitar and was soon off playing with John Entwistle.
It was so amazing, I had so many opportunities to record and work with many great producers, engineers, studios and musicians. And the constant team of John Greenberg, Billy Phelan and Billy Cinotti kept us together so that we could experience amazing, amazing times like when the guys from Deep Purple came to see us in Connecticut right after the ‘Perfect Strangers’ album and the next thing I know we are signed to Bruce Payne and Thames Talent! I mean c’mon Deep Purple’s management! That same year we began talking to Michael Wagener hoping to get something together between his producing the first White Lion and Skid Row records, then the amazing Jack Ponti who was another great mentor.
But I enjoyed working with Al Greenwood and Dave Greenberg the very most, they were the ‘Team’. Dave was an amazing engineer and Al a fantastic producer. Al, Bobby Held, Al Pitrelli and Tony Bruno would help by co-writing with me and getting me some great songs that they had written with Joe Lynn Turner with his amazing vocals, or Jordan Stanley with some fantastic lyrics, I mean we would just go in and record the songs  and everybody would go off and I would do my vocals with Al and David in the studio all of the backgrounds, and the odd guitar or drum part and what a treat to have Al occasionally play a B3 on some tracks and bam – Dave and Al mixed it in an amazing fashion – always.
We would do label showcases but then one guy went out with Doro or Alice Cooper so it was hard to get everybody together for longer than just the recording. I remember one time we did a showcase for Atlantic at like 10 o'clock in the morning!
We were playing around New York at the China Club or L’Amour Brooklyn, or L’Amour East or the Cat Club to make money, build our fans, hustling, a publishing deal here or there.
Then I had these opportunities like when Lou Gramm left Foreigner, I met with Bud Prager to be considered to replace him but Lou was my idol and his idols were my idols, guys like Steve Marriott and Paul Rodgers and then Terry Reid once Al introduced me to him. When Ray Gillen passed away, John Greenberg arranged for me to go to San Diego and audition with Jake E Lee and Badlands. When I was on the plane to California I popped in the tape of some of the songs to learn and the first song I heard was High Wire with Ray killing it!  I think I was paralytic with the guys (laughs) - Everyone I played with was amazing, all true gentlemen. They were so professional and creative; Complete masters of their craft.
No matter what the circumstances at the time or the way these tracks were recorded, the fact is they were and they are magnificent!
So fate has held them at bay all these years. At times there has been attempts by other labels to release these songs, to no avail. Arti Tisi’s work was left to be heavily traded via cassette in the 90s and then online in recent years. But no one has the masters. Or the complete picture. Until now.
After several months of conversations with MelodicRock Records, Arti Tisi is ready to unleash his collected works upon the world.
But what was uncovered is nothing short of spectacular. Going back through the collection of DAT tapes and quarter inch tapes was a vault of songs unprecedented in recent memory.
Of the 20 or so expected songs MRR was hoping to work with, we are now up to 53, with the possibility of still more.

All the cult classics will be included – A Little Too Early, I’ll Be There, Love You Too Much, Love Finds You Guilty….and plenty of never before heard songs, including a heartfelt cover of Rick Springfield’s My Father’s Chair. More details will be announced soon.
So with this rich vault of classic material to go through, fans can be guaranteed a treasure trove of killer music to add to their collections soon. All remastered by the guiding hand of JK Northrup.
Work continues on this right now and an announcement about a release will be made prior to the end of the year, with the aim to have this material officially released in the first quarter of 2017.
Classic American melodic rock, hard rock and AOR has never sounded better.
Release Year: 

KING OF BONES Sign to Lion's Pride Music

Lions Pride Music is happy to announce the signing of King Of Bones to the label for the release of the bands second studio album, Don’t Mess With The King, and for the bands debut album to be reissued later on. The band original hails from Sao Paulo in Brazil and plays straight forward heavy metal/hard rock  in the veins of  Pretty Maids, Blue Murder, etc. Check out the bands video for the track, Hold Me Closer, in the youtube clip below.
Band Bio;
Blending Hard Rock with Heavy Metal, King Of Bones is very influenced by the likes of Dio, Ozzy Osbourne, Whitesnake, Dokken, Harem Scarem, Blue Murder and Adrenaline Mob. The band could express their own personality on their latest album "We Are The Law" wich was recorded at Norcal Studios, in São Paulo (Brazil) and the record was produced and engineered by Brendan Duffey and Adriano Daga.
They gained such a positive feedback from the press and industry professionals and they're on its way building a solid fan base. Along with the Brazilian repercussion, the group managed to expand borders, achieving high-mark reviews and radio airplay at different radio broadcasters and web-based radios in many countries, like the U.S, England, Italy, Germany, Spain, France, Portugal and Poland.
Actually, King of Bones is enjoying the results of all their hard work giving his best at stage and working even more for the upcoming album that will be released in 2016.
Roll the Bones and Keep Rocking!

'We Are The Ones' Says The Now Solo DEE SNIDER

DEE SNIDER will release his new solo album, WE ARE THE ONES, which is due out October 28 on Red River Records (Distributed by BFD/RED).
WE ARE THE ONES crackles with modern energy, from the call-to-arms manifesto of “Rule the World,” to the anthemic bonding of “So What” (complete with, yes, a string section) to the intensely synth driven “Close to You,” to the thematically soaring “Superhero” (a song tailor-made for running over the end credits of the next Marvel or DC movie blockbuster if ever there was one). Another significant highlight of the album is a newly re-recorded acoustic version of “We’re Not Gonna Take It” which has also been tapped the official anthem for The Recording Academy’s advocacy efforts, including the “Fair Play Fair Pay” Act. Recently performed in Washington D.C. at the annual GRAMMYs On The Hill event, a video of the song recently premiered on Entertainment Weekly’s website and can now be viewed at
Also featured on WE ARE THE ONES is an explosive cover of Nine Inch Nails’ “Head Like A Hole.” “I always thought it was a great song, a powerful song,” DEE explains, “I can’t wait to do that one live. Like ‘We’re Not Gonna Take It’ is iconic, ‘Head Like a Hole’ is iconic for that era.”
With Twisted Sister effectively entering the rearview mirror, DEE now has his sights dead-set on his new musical direction. “You can’t expect others to embrace what you do if you don’t embrace it yourself,” he admits. “I have to believe it first before I can expect anybody else to believe it.  When you’re creating a new record, you want to make a statement, and you want to have music you can stand behind and feel strongly about. So it was a little unnerving when I started heading down this path. After Damon and I cut the first four tracks, I said, ‘Oh yeah, there is a place for me here.’ This is music I feel excited about, and I also look forward to playing it live.”
Earlier this summer, DEE took part in the unveiling of the new Rock & Roll Hall of Fame exhibit, “Louder Than Words: Rock, Power And Politics,” which will remain on display in Cleveland during the 2016 Republican National Convention. To commemorate the new Hall of Fame exhibit, DEE performed a new acoustic version of Twisted Sister’s legendary song, “We’re Not Gonna Take It.” This moving new version of DEE’s epic anthem is currently available on iTunes.
In April 2016, DEE was called to Capitol Hill for the second time—the first at the infamous 1985 Senate hearing instigated by Tipper Gore and the Parents Music Resource Center (PMRC)--to speak on behalf of The Recording Academy’s "Fair Play Fair Pay” initiative.  On September 18, DEE will be presenting his new music at Riot Fest at Douglas Park in Chicago, IL.
For the first time ever, superstar magician Criss Angel is joining forces with DEE to release a music video featuring the new acoustic version of “We’re Not Gonna Take It.” Directed by Angel, the video aims to raise awareness of pediatric cancer by promoting HELP, a one-night-only, star-studded event which took place on Monday, September 12 at Luxor Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas to support pediatric cancer research and treatment worldwide. The video sends a powerful message to viewers as DEE belts out the iconic lyrics, while the mother of a young girl—who is a cancer survivor—allows her head to be shaved in solidarity with her daughter and in support of the fight all of these children must endure. The video also features heart-wrenching footage of Criss Angel’s son, Johnny Crisstopher, going through treatments after being diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL) in 2015. 
DEE is unapologetically energized about where he’s going as an artist. “Music inspires that genuine enthusiasm.  I’m not anti the past — I’m just not one of those guys sitting there singing about the glory days.  To me, these are the glory days, and the days to come are the glory days.  And this new record is the part of my next glory days.”
Here’s the complete track listing of WE ARE THE ONES:
  1. We Are The Ones
  2. Over Again
  3. Close To You
  4. Rule The World
  5. We’re Not Gonna Take It
  6. Crazy For Nothing
  7. Believe
  8. Head Like A Hole
  9. Superhero
  10. So What

JON STEVENS Readies 'Starlight' Solo Album With Dave Stewart

Noiseworks vocalist JON STEVENS is finishing up work on a new album with guitarist/producer DAVE STEWART, which takes in a multi-media theme to accompany. A release date is not yet set, but a video preview/interview shows something pretty cool is on the horizon.
Check it out here:
What’s missing from music today?
Passion. Intensity. Call it whatever you like, it’s in critically short supply.
Which is why the world needs Jon Stevens more than ever. With his mojo fully intact, Stevens stands virtually alone in the music scene, with a raw vocal power that won him attention first as a teenager and now as a veteran singer and songwriter. Time has toughened his delivery while tapping into his emotional wellsprings more than ever before.
He’s got the pedigree: a record-smashing debut at age 16 with two consecutive No. 1 singles in his New Zealand homeland … huge hits in Australia as lead singer with Noiseworks … a 21st-century liftoff to worldwide acclaim at center stage with INXS … an iTunes featured release with his last band, The Dead Daisies, whose debut single, Lock and Load, which he wrote and produced with the legendary Slash on guitar.
Jon Steven’s new album Starlight bursts with a soulful artistry and honesty that’s rare and borders on extinction today. Vivid lyrics fuel his performance on “Feel Like Letting Go,” “Scars” and “Devil In My Heart”. A playful flirtation is set to a steamy soul beat on “Something ‘bout You”. The first single “Hold On” is classic powerhouse Jon Stevens.
The lonely ballad “One Way Street” features Ringo Starr on drums. “People” is a life-affirming sing-along anthem, extending hope to the hopeless with a reminder to not “be afraid of the shadows in the night. You’re gonna wake up in the morning light.”
All of the songs are co-written with Dave Stewart, co-founder of the Grammy-winning duo Eurythmics, who also produced the album as well as played guitar.
Different as they are, each track on Starlight overflows with feeling, with candor, with an exuberance that comes from being plugged into life. Everything Stevens has survived, learned from, mastered and made leads to this album …

TOM COCHRANE’S Landmark 'Mad Mad World' Silver Anniversary Release October 28

23 SEPTEMBER 2016 (Toronto, ON) – This week marks 25 years from the 1991 release of Tom Cochrane’s album, Mad Mad World, which accelerated the Canadian singer-songwriter’s already upward trajectory into the stratosphere. To celebrate this milestone, Universal Music Canada, the country’s leading music company, is reissuing Mad Mad World in remastered deluxe edition October 28, complete with the previously unreleased original demo recording of Love Is A Highway, from which grew the career-defining single Life Is A Highway, still in heavy rotation around the world a quarter-century later. The 2-CD set also includes a 1992 concert performance from Chicago which features key tracks from the album alongside Red Rider classics. The anniversary celebrations will further be supported by a special exhibition at the National Music Centre in Calgary, opening on October 28, and also a full Canadian tour, crossing Canada in the customary fashion – in winter – come early 2017.
Mad Mad World remains among the top-selling albums in Canadian music history, achieving rare Diamond-certified status (Cochrane is one of only three Canadian males to reach this plateau) on the strengths of such hit singles as the title track, No RegretsWashed Away,Sinking Like A Sunset, and, of course, Life Is A Highway, which reigned at #1 for six weeks in Canada, reached #6 on the Billboard Hot 100, and went on to become recognized the world over.
Tom Cochrane’s highway originates in Lynn Lake, Manitoba: the most northerly town accessible by road in the province. Selling a train set to buy his first guitar at age 11, Cochrane’s shrewd investment in his own musical talents would put him on the Canadian circuit of coffeehouses, pubs, roughneck bars – a time-tested road performance and songwriting apprenticeship that would lead to his first solo album, Hang On To Your Resistance, in 1974. A few years and many road miles later, Cochrane would become frontman for Red Rider, enjoying a great ten-year run during which they graduated to larger halls, arenas, and festivals stages and released a string of now-classic Canadian albums includingDon’t Fight It (1980), As Far as Siam (1981, featuring the worldwide hit, Lunatic Fringe) andNeruda (1983).  Within and without Red Rider, Cochrane has released 17 albums, most recently 2015’s Take It Home. He says, “The early days never leave you though, they get etched on your soul like a tattoo.”
Tom Cochrane is recipient of eight Juno Awards plus multiple songwriter awards from SOCAN, CAPAC, and ASCAP. Cochrane is a GRAMMY nominee, a member of the Canadian Music Hall of Fame and the Canadian Music Industry Hall Of Fame. He holds an honorary doctorate, has a place on Canada’s Walk of Fame, and has been honoured with both the Order of Manitoba and the Order of Canada. He is recipient of Queen Elizabeth II’s Diamond Jubilee Medal and is a former Honorary Air Force Colonel in the 409 squadron. Cochrane has also been tireless in his philanthropic works for decades, working with World Vision, War Child, Waterkeeper Alliance, Amnesty International, Médecins Sans Frontières, Make Poverty History, World Animal Protection, The United Way, Tree Canada, Unison and Tempo,  to name a few. He has and continues to lend his support to several other causes, including helping spearhead the Canada for Asia initiative, entertaining our troops in Afghanistan, and raising money for Parkinson’s research. He was a performer at Live 8, and in both Tears Are Not Enough and Young Artists for Haiti.
For all the artistic satisfaction, commercial success, and accolades, Tom Cochrane remains a humble and proud Canadian. As he puts it, “The thing is I’ve been extremely blessed in my life and career, I’ve had the good fortune of having some good people around me over the years, I’ve put one foot ahead of the other to see where the road would take me and providence has been kind…so from time to time I’ve happened to or tried to do the right thing. The biggest reward though is when someone comes up and says this song or that song got me through some tough times or was part of the best times in my life, or when I fell in love that was our song.”
Tom Cochrane presently divides his time between the tour bus, the city, and his beloved studio/retreat ‘Layastone’ on the shores of Georgian Bay. He continues to inspire and to be inspired, with passion for life and interest in global issues and music. Music is always at the centre of the action: upon finishing touring for 2016, he and his reunited Red Rider bandmates Kenny Greer and Jeff Jones will return to the road in 2017, touring Mad Mad World 25. “We’re extremely excited to play MMW25 in its entirety live – along with some of the other songs people want to hear in the set as well of course,” he says. Tom Cochrane will also have an eye down the highway, on his documentary film project, a MMW25 coffee table book, and then music for his next release.

Rock Candy Records Latest - MARCUS, MAYDAY & BAD BOY

The following five new Rock Candy titles are all available now from for a discounted price including postage to anywhere ending on October 16th.
THIS ALBUM IS a truly a remarkable artefact. Originally issued in 1976 to little or no acclaim, the record, despite it striking cover art and incendiary contents, sank without trace until British music publication Sounds afforded the record a glowing lead review. Aficionados and avid fans of hard rock began a frantic search to obtain copies and were pleased to find that the praise was indeed well deserved. By then, however, the band had already spilt up, disillusioned by a lack of interest and receiving zero promotion.
It was an incredibly unfortunate set of circumstances as the album is a true classic, a mid seventies hard rock album with the reach and depth of a band that, without a doubt, should have risen to the very heights of success. Formed in Detroit by leader and vocalist Marcus Malone (a former member of Mitch Rider's Detroit Wheels), the group was discovered and brought to Los Angeles by 60s soul legend Ike Turner, who secured them a deal with United Artists Records.
Produced by Stuart Alan Love (Phoenix, Black Sheep) the album resonates with impressive depth and maturity. The music is both accomplished and bold, fusing the grand swagger of Aerosmith with the progressive heaviness of Deep Purple. Featuring three lead guitars soloing away in a triple attack formation, alongside intricately arranged material, the record boasts a bevy of classic cuts, including 'Black Magic', Salmon Ball', 'Pillow Stars' and 'Highschool Ladies Streetcorner Babies'. An incredible statement of intent from one of the world's best kept secrets and, sadly, greatest losses.
WE AT ROCK Candy are often asked to reissue rarities and obscurities. With that in mind we have recently turned our attention to a number of acts that do indeed deserve our full attention despite the fact that they barely registered a blip on the rock radar at the time of release. Mayday are a case in point, being a truly outstanding unit that offered a refreshing and compelling alternative to the mega selling acts of the day yet, for whatever reason, were criminally overlooked at the time.
Initially called Sun, and formed in the mid to late seventies, with their roots in Chicago but basing themselves in New York City, Mayday plugged themselves into Manhattan's burgeoning club scene, playing underground clubs such as CBGB's, Great Gildersleeves and Max's Kansas City. It was this live circuit that helped to toughen the band up, winning them the attention of an independent production company who bank rolled the start of their debut album and helped them to sign to industry leaders A&M records.
Issued in 1981, the album was received with glowing reviews and set in motion a dedicated following amongst fans of perfectly executed melodic hard rock blessed with interesting twists and turns. The album boasts a number of superbly written and performed tracks, highlighting Steve Johnstad's captivating voice (compared on occasion with Steve Perry) and the biting guitar work of Randy Fredrix. Biggest surprise on offer is their inspired and indeed rousing version of the Starz classic 'So Young So Bad'.
NEW YORK CITY has, over the years, been home to a number of great rock acts, but during the early eighties it was fast losing ground to its west coast geographical rival, Los Angeles. NYC, for all its bravado, was actually more enamoured by the burgeoning alternative and power pop scene, scratch below the surface though and you could find several hard rock acts storming through, sticking bravely to a diet of tough-guy guitar work and well written melodic songs. Step forward Mayday, one such example of the city's hard rock counter movement.
Based in NYC, but with roots in Chicago, Mayday's debut album, for the well-respected independent label A&M, certainly put them on the map, helping to earmark them as an outfit to watch. The label's belief carried forward to the recording of their second album, albeit with a slightly revised line up but still retaining key member's, guitarist and song writer Randy Fredrix and vocalist Steve Johnstad ' the dynamic duo's creativity reaching a new level of confidence.
Issued in 1982, 'Revenge' showcases the band sharpening their approach and toughening up their chops, but without sacrificing a well-honed sense of melody and execution. It's all credit to the band that some of the songs showcase quirky twists that help to elevate them beyond the competition and lend a contemporary sheen to their sound.

GETTING A RECORD deal was not the easiest of tasks in the 1970s, especially if you were based in the mid-west of America with no real prospect of getting heard by industry big wigs at labels in New York or Los Angeles. There was no Internet, and telephone calls cost and arm and a leg. But, as the saying goes, there is no substitute for hard work, and by building a substantial local reputation, word soon spread that Bad Boy were a band fit for purpose.
Catching the ear of  producer Bob Brown, who conveniently also worked in artist relations for the respected United Artists label, Bad Boy soon found themselves signed and flown out to Los Angeles to record their debut album. Issued in 1977, the album boasts powerful riffs and memorable songs, the sort of thing that elevated Aerosmith, Ted Nugent and Kiss to superstar status during a time when rough and tumble hard rock was all the rage.
'The Band That Milwaukee Made Famous', may have been a bit of a mouthful at the time but, to those in the know, it made perfect sense, being a humorous parody of a famous advertising hook used by one of the many Beer breweries based in the city. The album sold reasonably well, even making the Billboard charts, but Bad Boy didn't become a house hold name. This album did, however, provide an opportunity for them to record an impressive follow up, 'Back To Back'.
THERE'S NO DOUBT that the 1970s were a golden time for blues infused rock, but it was also a period where the competition for attention was cut throat. Sure, if an act caught a wave of approval then the sky was the limit, for the majority of acts, however, it was a struggle to keep afloat, despite the fact that regional radio play and venues were plentiful and welcoming.
For Milwaukee, Wisconsin based four piece Bad Boy the odds were stacked against them, even though they had secured a coveted record deal with the United Artists label and had already gained a foothold with a well-received debut album. Stepping back into the studio they were a far more worldly wise team, and they crafted a record that sat easily beside master craftsmen of the era such as Aerosmith, Derringer, Cheap Trick and Kiss.
Originally issued in 1978, 'Back To Back' made for solid listening, focusing on melodic catchy songs with rock solid riffs. Tracks such as 'I Just Wanna Love You' and the funk infused 'Keep It Up' leave no stone unturned in their quest to impress. But the big winners here are the rifftastic 'No Stopping Me Now', and 'Take My Soul'/'Out Of Control', a near eight minute epic of the highest grade. With a regional following remaining forever loyal, the band were hamstrung by a label that was focussing on lighter fare, leaving them to pursue their quest for success independently whilst continuing to cultivate a solid legacy.

H.E.A.T Founding Member ERIC RIVERS Leaves Band

Bombshell news just in from H.E.A.T:
We have some sad news to share with our fans today.

The following is a message from Eric in his own words:
”Its with a heavy heart I have decided to leave H.E.A.T. It's a decision that's been brewing inside me for a long time. Its hard to answer the question why I'm leaving, but I just feel done. It's time for me to get off the ride. And what a ride it has been!

After more than two decades of contributing with his voice and songwriting on studio albums, Finally it is time for APOLLO to deliver his first solo album. And it's has been a long road leading to "Waterdevils".

Apollo career started at the age of 14 when the young Apostolos from Swedish town Borås, inspired by bands like Kiss and Alice Cooper, and he started playing with various bands, as an aspiring guitarist.
“Not many wanted to be Vocalists back in those old days, everybody wanted to play the guitar, nobody wanted to sing. So I just made the decision to become a singer."
Apollo  joined his first bands Blazon and Craze at the age of 17. Craze released a single "Living In Sin" but the band disbanded shortly thereafter when Apollo left to do his military service in 1988. It took another eight years before Apollo recorded his first full album with the band Faith Taboo.

"We started out as a cover band, but I didn't want to waste time just playing other people's songs, so I had everybody get involved in writing songs for our self-financed album "Psycopath" [released in 1996]. The band continued playing local gigs, they eventually called it a day and Apollo joined the band Majestic.

His singing career took off and when he sang with bands and projects in a neverending stream: Time Requiem, Meduza, Sandalinas, and Evil Masquerade to mention but a few. Things about to start to happen in 2006.

Time Requiem were mixing their album in Studio Fredman in Gothenburg in late 2005, when studio owner and producer Fredrik Nordström introduced Apollo to a guitarist GUS G who was also working in his studio.

Fredrik said he wanted me to meet this Greek guy, he thought we would get along, cause we were both Greek. It clicked right away. Gus asked me to join his band Firewind, but I had to turn down the offer because I was studying at the time and didn't have time for another band. He asked again about six months later, and by that time I was done with my studies so we went for it. It was magic, it felt like it was finally the real deal and we were all on the same musical level."

The Firewind-guitarist was Gus G - who in 2009 landed the dream job in Ozzy Osbourne's band, replacing Zakk Wylde.
The years with Firewind definitely and finally put Apollo on the map. He recorded 4 albums with the band and toured with the likes of Y&T, Scorpions, Judas Priest and Whitesnake among others, playing big festivals such as Download, Graspop Metal Meeting, Sweden Rock Festival and more.

Apollo parted company with Firewind in January 2013 and decided to focus on Spiritual Beggars (w. guitarist Michael Amott, Arch Enemy) who he had joined in 2010 and fronted alongside of Firewind, and also started working on his solo debut. The coming two years were spent writing, recording and collaborating with friends from bands like King Diamond, Helloween, Gamma Ray, Arch Enemy, Grand Magus, Metalium, MasterPlan and many more. 

"I originally wanted to release the material under a band name or as a project, but people kept saying it was about time that I go solo and step out as a solo artist. So I decided to take the plunge." "Waterdevils" is the result of Apollo's free musical spirit where he has liberated himself from all rules and just done whatever he wanted to do.

"I wanted to do this because it's fun and exciting, and also because I want to contribute to keeping classic rock alive! Waterdevils is a weather phenomenon. It's a small, weak whirlwind over water that's pretty rare. You never know where you'll see it or if you'll see it again. In a way it's a tribute to all of those who have contributed to this album. They showed up, unexpectedly and they might show up again, or maybe not, you just never know. Like water devils."

PROJECT NIGHTSCAPE Debut Album Available For Pre-Order

Pre-order Now to Receive Free Digital Copy of Tie-in Novel
Portland, Oregon, USA Imperiad Entertainment is pleased to announce the November 11 digital release and December 9 CD release of Project Nightscape’s debut album, To Sin Against Our Mercies.

Based on the series of supernatural thrillers by writer-film director David W. Edwards, this progressive hard rock concept album features the melodic guitar stylings of Grammy-nominee Tony Gaglio. Early reviewers have compared the music favorably to classic Black Sabbath, Deep Purple and Rush. The record includes musical contributions from Vinny Appice (Dio), Mirabai Peart (Joanna Newsom’s band), Tobin Sprout (Guided by Voices) and Pete Trewavas (Marillion). The album’s story concerns an itinerant, nineteenth-century doctor who encounters a blind boy in communication with the dead.

The 13-track album is now available for previewing and pre-ordering from Project Nightscape’s Bandcamp page. Anyone who places an order before November 11 will receive a free PDF copy of the action-horror tie-in novel, The Alchemist & Azriel upon its release in early 2017. The book will explore the fate of the supernatural threat at the center of To Sin Against Our Mercies. Edwards’ last Nightscape novel was characterized by Kirkus Reviews as “entertaining, poignant, and heady, a thoroughly enjoyable thrill ride powered by jolts of philosophy.”

The songs on this collection reflect its tight symphonic design, complete with character-based musical themes or motifs. “Tony and I established the track sequencing at the conceptual stage in order to properly develop and incorporate recurring motifs,” Edwards said. “From the beginning, the album was conceived as an extended suite to ensure the diverse material added up to more than the sum of its parts.”

Tracks range from the haunting gospel-inflected rock of the first single, “(Living in) Sacred Time” and the prog-pop of “Only Reason” to the jazzy, off-kilter “Inmortuorum Memorias” and the galloping metal of “Occulted.” The climax of the record is a ten-minute plus ‘mini-epic,’ “Starlost,” that serves as a thematic coda to the main narrative. This song has it all: acoustic and electric guitars; real strings (cello, violin and viola); dueling male and female vocals; a variety of keyboard sounds, including Mellotron and Hammond B-3 organ; ripping keyboard and guitar solos (and duets); and complex but indelible vocal harmonies.

The sheer range of musical styles was both a challenge and a source of inspiration for Gaglio, the album’s sole guitarist and main songwriter. “We worked hard to make sure each track stood on its own merits and at the same time, contributed to a cohesive whole,” he said. “Attentive listeners will definitely be rewarded by the attention to detail. Many of the songs are linked through subtle motifs, some of which you may not hear so much as feel.”

An early mix of the album’s first single, “(Living in) Sacred Time,” debuted on September 9 as part of a free compilation CD distributed to opening night attendees of the sold out ProgPower USA festival in Atlanta. The song is now streaming in its entirety on Bandcamp. Key retail partners include Amazon, Bandcamp, CDBaby and iTunes.

ENUFF Z'NUFF To Release 'Clowns Lounge' December 2 via Frontiers

Enuff Z'nuff is the living, breathing example of what a rock/ pop group should be. In fact, the band is the very chrome-glinted definition of it.

With every album and live performance packed to the brim with rock/ pop perfection, there are no signs of the band slowing down. You can catch the band on tour through 2017 in support of its soon to be released album "Clowns Lounge". A complete list of dates including shows with Tracii Guns and Ace Frehley can be found below.

Clowns Lounge is a collection of rarities and early demos that have been reworked and re-recorded by the band and will be released December 2nd via Frontiers Music Srl. This exceptional collection also features a guest appearance from the late Jani Lane of Warrant as well as an appearance from James Young of Styx.

As people have been clamoring for a new release from Enuff Z'nuff, the band just happened to receive a call from Derek Shulman, and the rest was history: 'We had unfinished, unreleased material in the vault, and I went back into the studio in Chicago and started working on all the songs. Guitars, bass, vocals, it all needed to be tweaked, and with help from Chicago Recording Company and Chris Steinmetz of Stonecutter recording studios, we were able to create another rock solid record. It is basically an archival record featuring original band and Enuff Z'nuff as it is today. The record showcases the best elements of Enuff Z'nuff in the early days ; in your face glitter rock with pop overtones. This is a true must have rock record for the diehard Enuff Z'nuff fans worldwide."

Chip on how the songs came about: 'Donnie and I wrote the songs in the later part of 1988-89. They were recorded in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin, on 2" inch analog tape, during the time of our debut. The tracks were never finished, as we were very prolific and focused on laying down as many ideas as possible. Through the resources provided to us: recording studio, production, etc., we had a plethora of songs during that era and for one reason or another this batch slipped through the cracks. To restore the record we returned to the studio to record guitar, bass vocals, etc. which took us about six weeks in my studio and at CRC (Chicago Recording Company) along with Stonecutter studio in downtown Chicago. The skeleton of the song was already in place and we wanted to make sure the record had the feel of where the band is today. We also added a bonus single track (Dog on a Bone) that we plan on releasing as the first single.'

Of course a huge contributing member to this release was Donnie Vie. 'Donnie and I wrote the songs together, as we have on all the Enuff Z'nuff albums. In 2013 Donnie left the band, disillusioned by the business and facing related health issues, and although he will not tour with the band he still shares in our vision of putting out great music. As he is dealing with his medical condition, we have his blessings on the record and moving forward with me as lead singer. When Peter Gabriel left Genesis, Phil Collins took over lead vocal duties. That is exactly the template we used here as now I front the band and look forward to moving it into the future', says Chip.

More Info on Enuff Z'nuff:
It was the summer of 1989, and in came a strutting, loud and proud Enuff Z'nuff. With the release of the band's self-titled debut album, the first single 'New Thing' quickly tore up the radios airwaves, and became a favorite in heavy rotation on MTV.

In response to both its national and international success, the band followed up 'New Thing' in 1990 with the release of the bittersweet rock ballad 'Fly High Michelle'. The song immediately elevated the band to gold status and in 1991 had Rolling Stone magazine naming Enuff Z'nuff as 'one of the more exciting and gifted bands on the scene today.'

Still a major force after 20 albums, Enuff Z'nuff has gone on to earn a legion of loyal fans, and has earned the respect and acclaim of its peers and contemporaries.
