AOR Heaven Announces October Titles: MIDNITE CITY & WHITE WIDDOW

Artist: 
Friday, October 19, 2018
Categories: 
 
Following on from their explosive self-titled debut album last year, MIDNITE CITY return all guns blazing on 19th of October 2018 via AOR Heaven with their sophomore release 'THERE GOES THE NEIGHBOURHHOOD' - eleven tracks of fist pumping, high energy, feel-good, hair metal of the highest order!
 

The lush melodies, huge choruses and gargantuan hooks found on their debut album are all here in abundance alongside some true modern day glam anthems, fun commercial party rock, moody mid-paced hard rockers and heart wrenching power ballads big enough to light up an entire arena.
As with the first album, the winning formula has remained - all songs have been written by Rob Wylde, whilst Pete Newdeck has once again taken control of production, engineering and mixing duties.  With ‘THERE GOES THE NEIGHBOURHOOD’ the band has literally stepped everything up several notches to unbridled, head splitting proportions. The guitars are big, the drums are huge, there are walls and walls of harmonies and more synths than you’d find this side of a classic Bon Jovi album. In a nutshell, this album has everything but the kitchen sink!

With shows all over the UK and Europe in 2017/ 2018, MIDNITE CITY's sound is tighter than ever before.
 
So if you long for a band that still look, sound and perform like those long lost million selling forgotten bands of the late 80's/ early 90's, MIDNITE CITY and 'THERE GOES THE NEIGHBOURHOOD' is the album for you.
 
Don’t forget to catch MIDNITE CITY tearing it up live all over the UK, Europe and beyond in their own inimitable, arena rock style in 2018/ 2019.

******************************
White Widdow formed in Melbourne, Australia in 2008 and ARE centered around the Millis brothers Jules (Vocals - ex Tigertailz) & Xavier (Keyboards - 2 x Aria Nominee) and guitar virtuoso Enzo Almanzi. Raised on a healthy diet of 80’s Arena Rock and influenced by artists such as Survivor, Foreigner, Journey, Night Ranger, Starship, Dokken and Australia's own Rick Springfield. In 2010 White Widdow signed with the AOR Heaven label and stormed onto the Melodic Rock scene across the globe with the release of their self-titled debut album throughout Europe. After four successful studio albums and numerous live appearances, the Australians now return with their 5th record which is entitled “Victory”.
 

2018 has seen White Widdow re-enter the studio, celebrating ten years since the band began and an album cover that throws back to the style of their debut. "Victory" incorporates a strong Pomp element in the songs along with White Widdow's traditional classic 80's AOR sound, the band allowing their influence of bands like Giuffria and White Sister to really come through. Featuring over the top pompus keyboards, stacked harmony vocals from the Millis brothers and Enzo Almanzi's tasty solos throughout. White Widdow are set to perform at Rockingham in the UK in support of the new album, followed by a tour through Spain, Greece and their native Australia.
 
White Widdow are: Lead Vocals - Jules Millis; Keyboards & Vocals - Xavier Millis; Guitars - Enzo Almanzi; Bass - Ben Webster; Drums - Gavin Hill

MIDNITE CITY - Midnite City (Showcase)

Artist: 
Friday, October 20, 2017
Midnite City
Produced By: 
Pete Newdeck
Release Date: 
2017
Released: 
Europe
Genre: 
Melodic Rock
Categories: 
 
MIDNITE CITY were formed in January 2017 by current Tigertailz front-man (and former Vega, Steevi Jaimz and Teenage Casket Company member and songwriter) Rob Wylde.

Armed with an album's worth of material written under the working title of MIDNITE CITY, Wylde approached friend Pete Newdeck (Newman/ Eden's Curse, Blood Red Saints) to produce three songs forhim to shop to record labels.

Wylde sang, played guitar and bass on the recordings whilst Newdeck played drums, provided backing vocals and took care of the production. Wylde also brought in newcomer guitarist Miles Meakin who played  guitar solos on the recordings and former band mate James Martin (Vega) who laid down keyboards on the tracks. After being mixed by Newdeck, the songs were sent to Harry Hess (Harem Scarem) who mastered them at his studio in Canada.

The songs 'Nothing's Like Losing You', 'Summer Of Our Lives' and 'Think About You' were then sent out to labels and garnered considerable interest across the board, resulting in a deal being inked with German label AOR Heaven.

With a record deal in place, Newdeck officially joined the band as drummer in the Spring of 2017, alongside Miles Meakin on guitar and Shawn Charvette on keyboards.With the line up now in place, the band began work on their debut album at PNP Productions in Tewkesbury UK, completing the recordings in June 2017.

With a sound that the band describes as 'Timeless, melodic rock/ hair metal', MIDNITE CITY cover all bases when it comes to this much loved genre of music. From ultimate feel good, party rock anthems, to brooding melodic rock monsters, to spine tingling power ballads, they are all here in abundance, and then some.

With an album release being planned for October20th,  2017, MIDNITE CITY will be taking their explosive live show out on the road throughout the UK, Europe and the USA in late 2017/ 2018.

AOR Heaven News: CODE RED, MIDNITE CITY & STATE OF ROCK

STATE OF ROCK return in late 2018 with new album!

The meeting of minds in Nurnberg; Germany in 2009, through the brainstorm of Georg Siegl of AOR Heaven Records, sported an album, ‘Point of Destiny’, recorded and written by four European musicians; three from Germany and an English vocalist. Georg’s passion for Frontline guitarist, Robby Boebel to record again brought forth an album with Hutch Bauer on bass, Ramy Ali on the kit and Tony Mills (ex-SHY, TNT) on vocals.
 
The result was a melodic but very tough sounding album with solid production and songs that demanded a replay.

2017/18, sees a return to new recordings, by, ‘State of Rock’, now split between the UK with Pete Newdeck on drums and Mills being Sweden based, co-writing with Boebel for a second release. Robby Boebel comments: “It’s something really special to record an album with someone which I only knew from TV before. We’ve now been friends since many years and I’m really looking forward to record another album and live dates in late 2018 with Tony.”
 
With the promise of German festival appearances in late 2018, an autumn release guided by video and radio promo will give us a clearer picture of the, ‘State of Rock’, by December next year.

 

 

MIDNITE CITY were formed in January 2017 by current Tigertailz front-man (and former Vega, Steevi Jaimz and Teenage Casket Company member and songwriter) Rob Wylde.
 
Wylde sang, played guitar and bass on the recordings whilst producer Pete Newdeck played drums, provided backing vocals and took care of the production. Wylde also brought in newcomer guitarist Miles Meakin who played  guitar solos on the recordings and former band mate James Martin (Vega) who laid down keyboards on the tracks. After being mixed by Newdeck, the songs were sent to Harry Hess (Harem Scarem) who mastered them at his studio in Canada.

The band’s self-titled debut album will be released on AOR Heaven on October 20th, 2017!
 
Swedish AOR hopefuls CODE RED have released a new video for the track “Heat Of The Night”, taken from the album “Incendiary” which will be released on AOR Heaven on October 20th, 2017.

AOR Heaven Announces Oct. 20 Releases - CODE RED & MIDNITE CITY

Artist:

German AOR/Melodic Rock label AOR Heaven will release two more genre highlights on October 20.
Hailing from Sweden are CODE RED, a new group around singer/song-writer Ulrick Lönnqvist (song-writer for Jim Jidhed, Creye, Mad Invasion and Find Me).
MIDNITE CITY is a new band formed by Tigertailz frontman and former Vega, Steevi Jaimz and Teenage Casket Company member and songwriter Rob Wylde.
 

 
Lead singer Ulrick Lönnqvist initially started out with the band Sahara who released a self-titled album in 2001 on AOR Heaven. Since then he has mainly been working as a song-writer and co-writer for different bands all around Sweden, i.e. with Hal Marabel (Bad Habit), Morgan Jensen (Swedish Erotica), Jake E (Amaranthe), Michael Palace (Palace) and Andreas Gullstrand (Creye) to name a few. So the seed to the new project and band CODE RED was planted many years ago in fact, when colleagues and partners became close friends.
During 2016 while Lönnqvist was co-writing songs for the new albums with Jim Jidhed, Creye, Mad Invasion and Find Me, producer Daniel Flores (The Murder Of My Sweet, Find Me) approached to him and suggested that he really should record an album of his own. It was never Lönnqvist's ambition to be a solo artist, but Flores convinced him and wanted to produce the album. The singer teamed up with co-writers Morgan Jensen (Swedish Erotica) and Michael Palace (Palace, Big Time), and along with lead guitarist Oscar Bromvall (Palace, Erika) and keyboard player Kaspar Dahlqvist (Shadowquest, Dionysus) the line-up was complete. CODE RED was born.
 
It felt like a natural step to approach Georg Siegl at AOR Heaven, and he believed in the songs and CODE RED right from the start. The band recorded their debut album during the spring of 2017 at Sound vs. Science in Stockholm under the direction of producer Daniel Flores and Ulrick Lönnqvist. It was a pure labor of love, resulting in the melodic rock album titled “Incendiary”.
