MICHAEL THOMPSON BAND Debut New Song & Video

Categories: 
 
Not only will the Michael Thompson Band be appearing at Frontiers Rock Festival this April 28-29th for their first live performance in Europe, but they are also working on a new studio album! Today, we are pleased to offer you a preview of the new music they are working on with the song, "'72 Camaro"
 
You can also stream or download the single here:
 
This video was filmed when Craig Bauer (mixing engineer) was approached by Hear Technologies with the idea of capturing video of a recording session in Sphere Studios, owned by Francesco Camelli (tracking engineer), in LA. They wanted well known, reputable musicians in the video since it was ultimately going to be used at their booth at the NAMM Show. Craig approached Michael Thompson and Larry King, who are in the middle of the recording new albums from Michael Thompson Band and Soleil Moon and they were more than happy to call in some friends to be the subjects for the video with them. So Vinnie Colaiuta, Leland Sklar - Bassist, and Ricky Peterson came in and now you have this video to watch!
 
“We will see if and how we will use this song later on,” says singer Larry King, “but in the meantime we wanted the fans to be able to properly enjoy this song in preparation of the band’s performance at the Frontiers' Festival. We hope you can enjoy this and see you soon in Italy!”

MICHAEL THOMPSON BAND To Record New Album For 2018

Categories: 

Frontiers Music Srl is pleased to announce that a new album from MICHAEL THOMPSON BAND is in the works! 

With an amazing list of credits including such prominent names as Phil Collins, Rod Stewart, Scorpions, Vince Neil, Christina Aguilera, Michael Bolton, Mariah Carey, Madonna, and many, many, many more, Michael Thompson is one of the music industry's most widely heralded guitar players. Less known is the fact that he has his own rock band, who debuted back in 1988 on Geffen Records with the release of a highly acclaimed album entitled "How Long", under the Michael Thompson Band (MTB) monicker. 
 
“How Long” was reissued in 2007 with three bonus tracks and was the beginning of a relationship between Michael Thompson and Frontiers, who also released a brand new Michael Thompson Band album, “Future Past” in early 2012. 
For this new album, Michael has again teamed up with the awesome singer Larry King from the band Soleil Moon. Larry has brought a new and more rockin' approach to the MTB sound and the new album will pick up where the previous one left off.
The new album is planned for release in 2018 and Michael and Larry are also working, together with keyboard wizard John Blasucci (Dennis DeYoung), on a the third SOLEIL MOON studio album which will also be released via Frontiers Music Srl and promises to be an absolute must hear for all West Coast AOR/Melodic Rock lovers out there!
