From Frontiers:

BREAKING NEWS: Ted Poley and Frontiers are pleased to announce that they have partnered up for the release of another solo album from the singer. Ted is currently hard at work in Sweden on this still untitled effort. This time around, the Danger Danger singer has partnered up with some incredibly talented Swedish musicians, namely Mats Ericsson, Micke Jansson, Daniel Johansson, and Robin Ericsson (on additional vocals). "You might know some of those guys other musical work as the band degreed,” says Ted “I am also getting some vocal layering with the help of my good friend, the Italian Stallion of Vocals, Alessandro Delvecchio. The album is being co-Produced by Mats Ericsson and myself in Kopperberg, Sweden.”

Ted continues, "[a]fter almost 40 years of recording and releasing music, I wanted to stretch out a little bit musically and I am proud to say that I have come up with a MAGICAL combination of amazing musicians and songs! The songs are awesome, and the musicianship will BLOW YOU AWAY. Every one of the players are MASTERS of their instruments and you might hear just a hint of modern prog interlaced with my usual catchy choruses this time around! This is going to be my favorite solo album ever and an album that I felt I HAD to make. And I am so happy with the results so far!”

More news as it becomes available!

Cool. I was listening to his last album two days ago... so freakin' good was that. If this is as good as, or better, it's got potential to top the list in 2018. Cannot wait.

I love Ted, I really do, but I'm still waiting for an over-the-top, sticky-sweet, ultra-produced album that approaches the D2 debut.  That one was just so damn good it's like chasing a ghost.

Yeah, I think Revolve might have been the closest.

Is this getting a general release, rather than the very pricey version from his website?

I'm pretty sure this will be released in Europe through Frontiers later this year. See my first post.

+1, all in all this album is nice, it's like a softer degreed, but I prefer hard degreed.

Best song IMO: Running For The Light.

Ted says over on his site that this is not a solo cd but more of a collaboration cd,his new solo cd will be released on Frontiers in 2019 :) that being said I don't mind the different sound/style for what its worth.

Degreed-lite is a good analogy....maybe even Degreed Super-lite.

Songs I've heard have been okay but not really doing much for me.

I don't understand this at all. Not hearing this really soft album you guys seem to be hearing?

Just to change the tone of this thread as it's been pretty luke-warm so far, lol... I'll put it out there that this is my favourite album I've heard so far this year. Remembering LeBrock is an EP...

But I just really like this album. Super consistent and I find myself really enjoying every song a lot. Favourite songs are pretty much every single one of them, but for me, 'Time' is the show stealer. Ripper of a track. But like I say, I just really like the whole thing. 

I expect it to be overtaken by the likes of Midnite City or even this Nitrate thing, but it's a joy for now.

Not being a big fan of Degreed,(and this sounds like Degreed, with a different singer) I find it to be just ok, and I love Ted Poley. For me W.E.T. and Kissin' Dynamite kicks it's ass.

I'm a fan of Degreed and to me, this doesn't really sound like Degreed.  I think the difference is Robin's griity voice that adds a bit more edge to it all and makes some of their choruses explode.

Just don't get that same edgy feeling with Ted's album from the handful of songs I've heard.  

Agree that Kissin' Dynamite is awesome!

I never heard of Degreed but I bought this CD because of Ted and I have enjoyed it.

    • Awesome! Thanks! I also have some demos of Dennis Cameron from *after* Angelica that he was working on that never saw the light of day (in case anyone would be interested).
    • Here you go. Angelica's demos with Andy Lyon on vocals: https://we.tl/t-vc17XGXORd
    • only a man has one of the greatest intros to a rock song ever 
    • from various sources: "Right Turn" is the new album from singer / songwriter DANIEL TRIGGER, an indie artist who has been releasing several records since 2005, plus albums under the Trigger name. We have listened to some of them but his overall heavy rock style never convinced us. However, things are changing with "Right Turn". I can see why the album will be released by MelodicRock Records soon; this material is inspired by the classic Melodic Rock sound from the '80s.

      One thing that will surprise the listener is that Daniel hails from the Midlands in the UK and not the US as the music on here would suggest. Bringing to mind Mitch Malloy (in his early years), Johnny Lima and late '80s Bon Jovi, Daniel Trigger knows his way around a melodic tune and chorus.

      Lyrically he harks back to the glory days of melodic rock on ‘Days Gone By’. ‘Drive’ is a tune made for just that – top down on the car (or windows for most of us) with this melodic rock gem blasting out on the speakers. There's a clear Malloy feeling in the classy melodic rock pattern of 'Running Into The Wind', with its rip roaring piano riff including acoustic guitar into the mix but used as 'electric' riffage.

      Midtempo 'Hold Back The Night' brings to mind Bon Jovi's New Jersey era, really 'American' in its delivery, 'Heavy Heart' has a catchy, pure '80s melodic rock chorus, while we have a classic rock vibe on the fun ‘Rock N Roll Party’. The only ballad here, ‘There In Your Heart’, bring to mind Jon Bon Jovi solo album, or better Johnny Lima, as Trigger's voice is very similar to them.   If you have listened to some of Daniel Trigger previous albums, forget 'em, he has 'turned' timeless melodic rock here on the properly titled "Right Turn". There's sweet melodious vocals, catchy choruses, a warm production, and while Daniel performs all instruments, he was cleverly enough to bring a very good guitar player in Jay Maddison to provide the clean solos and round up very entertaining songs. Daniel Trigger will be a new name to many and he is worth listening to based on the melodic rock delights he has provided here. Highly Recommended

    • I don't really mind the extra guitar effects... unnecessary noodling, but actually well played, and no one should ever argue the dude's guitar prowess.  But those vocal chords have obviously taken a pounding over the past 35 years.  I would have lost a bet had someone challenged me whether or not that was Aldo Nova on vox.  I would have laughed and called you crazy for implying such jest.  Appears the joke is on me!   This one is not on my buy list.
