From Frontiers:

BREAKING NEWS: Frontiers Music Srl is pleased to announce the release of new project featuring singer Steve Overland Official of FM official and Robert Säll of Work of Art & W.E.T. under the monikerGroundbreaker. The self-titled debut will be released on September 14th. Today, the first single and video, "Over My Shoulder" has been premiered, which you can check out below!

The album is simply everything that a melodic rock fan could hope for: soaring hooklines, magnificent melodies, amazing musical performances, and in Overland, a stunning vocalist. Mixing the British and Swedish melodic rock/AOR styles, Groundbreaker is truly the best of both worlds and surely destined to be one of the highlights of the year in an already stellar year for melodic rock!

GROUNDBREAKER came about when a conversation between Frontiers’ President Serafino Perugino and Overland revealed that the latter was eager to collaborate with new and exciting musicians from the European melodic rock scene. The idea was immediately brought up to involve Robert Sall of Work of Art and use Alessandro Del Vecchio’s production abilities. Overland loved the initial material that was submitted and consequently, they all started to work on songs. The process was very smooth and the final result was so good that everyone thought that the name “GROUNDBREAKER” was the right way to describe the power and the vibe of the music.

"I’m the main composer for about half of the songs, but Ale and Steve wrote a lot as well,” tells Robert Sall. “I had to write songs with Steve´s voice in mind and that was new, but very inspiring to me. But for any fan of FM or Work of Art, I think they will be very familiar with the sound of this record!”

“The idea for the album was to make a classic AOR album and I think between Robert, Alessandro, Pete Alpenborg and myself, we came up with a great collection of songs,” adds Overland. "I think this is some of the best material I've worked on in a while and all of the musicians on the record are fantastic, not only as players, but to work with. I knew of Robert's writing talents on the Work of Art records, but it really turned out to be a great collaboration and I'm so proud of the results! My personal favourite song on the record is "Will It Make You Love Me.” We’ve shot a video for it and I think it's truly a future classic!"

If you like, no LOVE melodic rock, then this is simply a must hear album!

I like the most recent FM album - two tracks on there I like a lot.

I like this track.  It's solid.

I hate the band name, LOL.  "Groundbreaker"?  OK, maybe if you're music is at all unique.  Otherwise...

    • Brilliant album  and one of the best of it's type. so if you haven't got it before, now is your chance.
    • From FB back in May: Hi All!
      This time we have a little heartbreaker for you called "I'm loving you"
      It's our 7th song,
      i'm very tempted to put out few other's but i want there to be some surprises for the album but who knows maybe we will throw one more out in near future.
      We still have a lot of work to do,as we are working on our own and we are on and off 3 member band at the moment,
      but i can tell you there will be 12-13 songs on the album and i have songs to fill up quarter of the next album.
      I can't wait for the album myself and i know there will be no fillers.
      Depends on taste,but these days for me is hard to find a decent album which has more than 2-3 very good tracks,so i have to stick with the old school AOR mostly.Still some stuff to discover though. This track,like all the others is mixed and mastered by our very good lead guitarist Mick T
      and i can be blamed for the lyrics & music as usual. And again big THANK YOU for listening etc.We will work harder to get further and i hope the future will look bright for us

    • I'm going to go with this one.
      Opener off the album and I thought it was ok on first listen, since them has grown a lot on me  
    • Starting over at the age of 57. Watch the documentary 'Queen of Scream' down below. From AOR Heaven: She is one of the finest Canadian Rock singers, she fronted for 36 years celebrated melodic rockers Headpins recording 3 albums, and she did backing vocals of countless '80s records. In August 2016 Darby performed the last gig with Headpins and from this date she's now under her own monicker. The "Flying Solo" stuff is a compilation of songs recorded by Darby Mills during the '80s / early '90s, released under the 'Darby Mills And The Unsung Heroes' moniker, long time out of print. All the material has been digitally remastered for the first time, and it sounds million bucks. Easily among the best female fronted AOR ever recorded, all the songs on this CD are fantastic and simply utterly essential for really every AOR lover !  Get it from her website (CA$ 25.00 incl. shipping): http://www.darbymills.com/store
