STONELAKE Announce New 'Thunder And Rain' Opus on MRR

  It is with great pleasure that MelodicRock Records announces the signing of Swedish hard rockers StoneLake for the release of their new studio release ‘Thunder And Rain’.   It is the third release in a partnership with StoneLake’s founder Jan Akesson, following previous albums from S.A.Y and Jan Akesson’s Shadow Rain.   This will be StoneLake’s seventh album and their first in 5 years. The band might have a new updated logo, but ‘Thunder And Rain’ is an album of classic StoneLake you know and love – high octane guitar riffs, pounding rhythm section and layers of vocals and keyboards brining the melody.

MELODICROCK FEST 5 USA - LINEUP CHANGE

MELODICROCK FEST 5 USA – LINEUP CHANGE   It is with great disappointment and considerable sadness that I must announce the withdrawal of MECCA and SCHERER/BATTEN from MRF5 USA.   First of all – this is entirely regrettable, but it is one of those risks you have to accept when booking an event 12 months out from the go date.   I’d like to reaffirm that neither of these cancellations are due to anything under my personal control. In both cases, unrelated issues combined with the logistics of putting together working lineups for both acts has proven too great a challenge to achieve.
