Street Symphonies Records & Burning Minds Music Group are excited to announce the signing of Swedish glamsters Lipz, for the release of their brand new album "Scaryman". The history of Lipz begins back in 2011, when Klintberg bros Alexander (Vocals, Guitar) and Koffe (Drums) decided to build up a new band together with their best friend Conny Svärd (Guitar). The band immediately started the research for a suitable frontman, but after some unsuccessful tries Alexander decided to pick up the mic himself, becoming immediately the perfect fit for the group. With this line-up, Lipz entered the studio to begin the recordings of their own material. Their first single "Ghost Town" was released in September 2012, followed three years after by their official EP called "Psycho". An endless research for a stable bass-player slowed down the process of making a full studio album, which took three years to be finally completed (with Alexander handling the bass duties himself). 

In 2018 Lipz signed with Street Symphonies Records / Burning Minds Music Group for the release of "Scaryman", which is expected in May.

Label Manager Stefano Gottardi says: "Since Oscar Burato and myself founded Street Symphonies Records back in 2008, our first priority has always been scouting the underground scene looking for young and promising bands, especially those with cool music, right attitude and a great look. In 2011 we stumbled upon Lipz for the first time, and we immediately contacted the guys to discuss the release of a record: sadly it never happened, especially for some unexpected changes they were making to their sound at that time. When a few months ago we heard that they were finally recording their debut album, and that it would have been inspired by their "original" sound, we immediately contacted them, in order to resume the negotiations interrupted years before. After listening for the first time to "Scaryman", we had no doubt: it was exactly the kind of record we wanted to hear from Lipz! The revival of glam rock, started in the second half of 2000s, caused an invasion of new bands (most of them coming from Sweden), but today the 95% of those acts no longer exists, while just few are being born these days. Lipz are among the few convincing young leading figures of this scene: they have the mood, the refrains, the right look and the needed attitude. But most of all they show off that cool mix of extravagance and madness which promises to bring you back in time, when this entertaining rock style ruled the charts being literally the soundtrack of our youth".

Further info about official release date, final tracklist and more details will follow in the forthcoming weeks.

LIPZ is: 
Alex K Klintberg: Vocals, Guitar
Koffe K Klintberg: Drums
Conny Svärd: Guitar

Decent tune, but I thought "Ghost Town" and the tracks on their EP were better

Nice, I found it similar to Ghost Town too.  Hearing a song that you really like and that has a melody/hook that stays with you is what it is all about.

As with everything from the Lipz camp I am smitten with the Get It On track. 

These kids are as cool as can be.

 

I can't wait to get a copy, maybe they will send me one...

 

One thing that saddens me is the lack of bass player in the vid. Sure they may be in between but have the singer grab a bass vs the guitar and the continuity is restored, all is right with the world...

I listened to this during my workday today and thought it sounded pretty good, my initial favorites are Star, Get It On, and Falling Away.  I'll give it another spin over the weekend.

Sorry guys but I must be hearing something completely different to you. Just finished listening to this and it has to be one of the worst albums I have heard this year.

Almost the entire box set is unreleased, never before heard material. The tracks you do recognise are mostly in a different form. Ballad versions or rockers; instrumental pieces; alt-mixes; heavier guitar versions…you name it! For the rest of the unreleased tracks, this set is a veritable treasure trove of classic BRETT WALKER, representing his various career paths – AOR, melodic rock, midwestern, acoustic – anthems, ballads and those classic singalong songs only Brett Walker can do.

    • Heir Apparent is returning with a long awaited third album called The View From Below which is scheduled to be released October 15th, via No Remorse Records.  The reunited band features three original members.  Promo track "The Door" is available now. https://www.heirapparent.com/ https://www.noremorse.gr/product_info.php?products_id=68064&___p=PRE-ORDER%3A HEIR APPARENT - THE VIEW FROM BELOW CD (NEW) HEIR APPARENT was founded in 1984 by guitarist Terry Gorle. During 1985, the band signed with Black Dragon Records and completed the first album "Graceful Inheritance" which was released in January of 1986. Up to this day, their debut album is considered as one of the best US metal albums of the 80s. After highs and lows in the music industry and line-up changes, finally Heir Apparent was signed by Metal Blade Records and released their second album "One Small Voice" (1989), one of the best progressive metal albums of all times. Although the future looked bright, tensions surrounding commitment and finances within the band caused a rift that split the group. In 2000, Heir Apparent reunited at the Wacken Open Air festival in Germany, and in the next years more shows followed with different line-ups for festivals like Keep It True, Metal Assault and Up The Hammers.
      The current line-up consists of original members Terry Gorle (guitar), Derek Peace (bass), Ray Schwartz (drummer) with the addition of Op Sakiya (keyboards) and the great new singer Will Shaw. 
      "The View From Below" was produced by Tom Hall in cooperation with the band. Tom Hall had produced the previous Heir Apparent releases and also worked with Queensrÿche on their "Queensrÿche" EP (1983) and "Empire" (1990), among others.

      Track list:
      1. Man in the Sky
      2. The Door
      3. Here We Aren't
      4. Synthetic Lies
      5. Savior
      6. Further and Farther
      7. The Road to Palestine
      8. Insomnia
