So both are being released at the same time?

I think so.....

The ballads could always have a chance as a second single. But the proper formula should be - 1st single rocker, 2nd single

I agree...the other problem though is that getting modern US rock radio to play an AOR anthem rocker is pretty much nil to none unless you have a HUGE amount of backing which, to be perfectly honest, neither Journey nor Dep Lep are going to get. Joe Elliot said it best on the Dep Lappard storytellers episode where he said the only market for a melodic rock band in the US these days was in the ballads. Release a rocker and ya won't get airplay --> low sales.....or....release the hit ballad --> good sales, but you get stereotyped as a "ballad band". Catch 22 if ya ask me.
