  3. From Frontiers: BREAKING NEWS: Frontiers Music Srl is pleased to announce the signing of BLACK ROSE MAZE, a new project centered around the talents of the awesome Canadian singer Rosa Laricchiuta. Rosa Laricchiuta is a singer, songwriter, and performer from Montreal, Quebec. After several years cutting her teeth with live shows, she auditioned for the third season (2015) of "La Voix", Quebec's version of the popular TV show "The Voice”. Rosa had an instant connection with the legendary francophone rocker Éric Lapointe and chose him as her coach. Rosa showed a solid stage presence, with remarkable intensity and a voice so powerful, it sent her straight to the Grand Finale where she shared the stage with Def Leppard, Kelly Clarkson, Jean Leloup, and her idol, Melissa Etheridge. She left a lasting impression as she won over millions of viewers who named her the new "it" Quebec female rocker. She then released one album in the Quebec market before beginning work on her first English language album in 2016. That album, “Free" was released the following year and at the end of the year, she joined the popular American band Trans-Siberian Orchestra for their annual mega tour of the United States. Rosa was then brought to the attention of Frontiers by none other than fellow Trans-Siberian Orchestra bandmates and now labelmates, Dino Jelusic (Animal Drive) and Jeff Scott Soto. Rosa will now front her very own hard rock project and will be working diligently on it over the next few months. Stay tuned for more news as it becomes available. https://www.facebook.com/Blackrosemaze/ Some songs from her 'Free' EP.

  6. From sleazeroxx.com: Playhouse to release new album ‘The Rock N’ Roll Circus’ on November 10th Canadian hard rockers, Playhouse, will be releasing their first new album in more than 25 years with the release of The Rock N’ Roll Circus on November 10, 2018. The group will be having a CD launch party at the Piranha Bar in Montreal, Quebec, Canada on November 10, 2018. Playhouse‘s “Story” on their Facebook page states (with slight edits): “Formed during the height of the 80’s hard rock invasion, five high school friends wanted to play loud! The year was 1987 and they had one goal, to be the biggest rock band to ever come out of Canada. Playhouse released two E.P..’s; 1989’s Little Monster and the follow up; Tongue, Tied & Twisted in 1990. With a reputation for high energy shows and big chorus anthems. they quickly started filling every club they played. Now armed with a dedicated fan base solidly behind them, local promoters came calling. Soon, Playhouse found themselves opening for the likes of Extreme, Killer Dwarfs,Brighton Rock, Harem Scarem and many more. Then after 8 years together in the Rock n Roll Circus, the band called it quits…and now, almost 25 years later, THEY ARE BACK! In the fall of 2016, the band reunited and entered the studio for the first time together in over 20 years with veteran recording producer and lead guitarist for Slaves on Dope, Kevin Jardine to record three new songs. The first video “On Fire” was released in September 2016 with a follow up video released a few months later for “Stand Up And Fight.” In November 2017, Playhouse returned to the stage after 25 year with their sold out comeback show in Montreal, Canada.

    Toby Hitchcock - Reckoning

    From Frontiers: BREAKING NEWS: Frontiers Music Srl announces the release of TOBY HITCHCOCK's second solo album, “Reckoning” on January 25, 2019. Powerhouse American vocalist Toby Hitchcock is back with a brand new solo album, “Reckoning”. The album was written and produced in collaboration with Swedish producer Daniel Flores (Find Me, The Murder of My Sweet). Toby first came to the attention of melodic rock fans when former Survivor founding member Jim Peterik hand-picked him to be the lead singer for Pride Of Lions, the band that would mark Jim's return to the rock scene. With Pride of Lions, Toby has sung on five studio albums which are considered true classics among the melodic rock/AOR faithful. Often compared to Bobby Kimball (Toto), Jimi Jamison (Survivor), and Lou Gramm (Foreigner), Hitchcock’s voice has the depth, feeling and the feel of each of them, while still keeping his own identity and trademark. When Pride of Lions took a small hiatus in 2011, Toby took the opportunity to hook up with Swedish songwriter/producer Erik Martensson (Eclipse (Sweden), W.E.T., Ammunition) for his first solo album, “Mercury’s Down.” The album was a display of the talent of the two young guns, with Toby showing an unbelievable set of pipes on some heavier material, specially penned for him by Martensson. In 2017, work on a new solo album started with Toby once again looking to Sweden for another exciting collaboration. Swedish producer Daniel Flores (Find Me, The Murder Of My Sweet) crafted a superb set of songs that are an absolute AOR gem of an album. Toby Hitchcock says, "being able to record my second solo album was a big step for me. I didn’t want to be a “one hit wonder” type of artist. So I’m very thankful for the opportunity to record a sophomore album. Working on my own solo record is really a great way for me to be creative on my own, so it’s very satisfying, and I love the feeling. Both of my solo projects were produced by different artists. So they feel completely different. This is a great thing for music lovers, as it brings a different vibe. This allows me to really explore my vocals and just have a great time doing it. Both albums have been amazing to work on and I couldn’t be happier." “Reckoning” is a must hear release for all melodic rock/AOR fans out there. Buckle up and enjoy the ride! https://www.facebook.com/tobykhitchcock
