  3. Debut album out April 6th. From their website: DANGEROUS CURVES are an Australian hard rock/glam metal band formed in the summer of 2015 in Geelong. Inspired by superstar bands like Bon Jovi, KISS, and Van Halen, the band set out to bring back the famed era of 80’s L.A styled Rock ‘n’ Roll with a modern twist. The very first performance of Dangerous Curves saw them performing on a live televised T.V Series, and the band quickly went into the studio to make a demo of the song “Blow my Whistle” which has had a huge response and caught the attention of venue owners and industry insiders, as well as gaining radio play across the Nation and international web-radio shows! Dangerous Curves found themselves playing countless venue stages across the state, and released their self-titled EP in early 2016 to acclaim. “Geelong four piece’s debut EP is a brief but spirited lesson in hard rock kick-assery – short, punchy songs with catchy riffs, blazing solos, tight playing and just enough energy and sleaze to get the business end of a party started” – LOUDMAG “With a sound that meshes the attitude of early Gunners, the song-writing grit of the underrated Junkyard and the party attitude of the fun-end of the strip it really has all of the impact a band that has only been together since 2015 could wish for.” -THE ROCK PIT “When everyone seems to be doing similar things, Dangerous Curves have thrown a massive f*ck you and done things their way with a nod to old school, glam rock.” – FORTE MAG “This isn’t 80’s inspired hard rock.. This is 80’s hard rock!” -THE HARD ROCK SHOW dangerouscurvesrock.com www.facebook.com/dangerouscurvesrock Tracks: Sensationable Submit Art Of The Heart Club Mile High Funky Bonez I Need Lovin' So Dirty Right Ready Or Not See You Again Forbidden Love Locked Down
  4. From Frontiers: Nordic Union. "Second Coming". Out November 9, 2018 on CD/LP/Digital. More details, including tracklisting, and the first song from the album will be released in the coming weeks! For those who don't know, Nordic Union is the collaboration between Erik Martensson of Eclipse (Sweden) (and W.E.T.) and Ronnie Atkins Official of Pretty Maids. This will be their second album. You can hear their first album on all streaming services.
  5. From Frontiers: After a self-imposed exile from the music industry and the public eye, heralded guitarist Jake E. Lee (Ozzy Osbourne, Badlands) returned with a fresh new band, Red Dragon Cartel in 2014. Now, Jake and RDC are back with their new album “Patina”, which is set for release November 9th via Frontiers Music Srl. Jake’s 2014 comeback was greeted with much enthusiasm from the fans and media alike and the virtuoso guitarist is back once again to grace the rock world with his unbridled skill! With an extremely talented band featuring Anthony Esposito on bass (ex-Lynch Mob), Phil Varone (ex-Saigon Kick, Skid Row) on drums and returning vocalist Darren Smith (Harem Scarem) backing him up, Jake has delivered the album fans have been eager to hear since Badlands dissolved years ago. In addition to being the new bassist for Red Dragon Cartel, Anthony Esposito co-produced the album alongside Jake E. Lee. “I think we had a great production partnership. He never discouraged me from trying things that were a bit outside the box, in fact he encouraged it. His attention to detail in the recording of everything was exceptional. Much more than I alone would have toiled over. He has an incredible work ethic that kept me from lapsing into complacency. If we disagreed on how something should be, we'd find a perfect marriage of the two sides, or completely reimagine it. We didn't settle on anything unless we both agreed it was perfect. If I do another album, I'd love it to be with him again,” says Lee. Another new member to Red Dragon Cartel is drummer Phil Varone, whose style Lee really appreciated. “Phil is a very solid and groove oriented player, who is not afraid to turn things upside down to give the song a more unique flavor," explains Lee. “Patina” marks a change of style from the debut Red Dragon Cartel album, going more bluesy hard rock as opposed to the debuts heavier leanings. Remarks Lee, “The first album was more of a piecemeal production with some of the song ideas being 10 years old, and never having more than one player in the room at any time. I wanted to do this one from scratch with all the songs originating and worked on with everyone in the room, on their instruments. It felt much more organic, like the way I used to do it for the first 20 years of my career, more honest to my roots.” When asked about his musical inspirations for the record, Jake muses, “[m]y inspirations for ‘Patina’ are from the artists I loved during my youth. Robin Trower, Santana, Black Sabbath, Captain Beyond, Thin Lizzy, Grand Funk Railroad, David Bowie ... I could go on and on, but let me also say that there are also hints of Sly & the Family Stone, Dick Dale, psychedelia and even some George Benson. Don't let any of that scare you, it all makes sense!” “Patina” is a definitive statement of Jake’s unbelievable skills with a monster production from Esposito and a perfect mix, courtesy of Max Norman, whose relationship with Jake dates back to his days with Ozzy Osbourne. Get ready, “Patina” is coming and with it, Jake E. Lee is BACK! Tracklisting: 1. Speedbag 2. Havana 3. Crooked Man 4. The Luxury Of Breathing 5. Bitter 6. Chasing Ghosts 7. A Painted Heart 8.

    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

    Magic Dance - New Eyes

    Press release from Frontiers: BREAKING NEWS: Frontiers Music Srl is pleased to announce the signing of Magic Dance! MAGIC DANCE is the solo project of singer/songwriter Jon Siejka, formed in Long Island, NY in 2012. A self-taught musician and producer, his debut EP, "Another World" was released in May 2013. "The Mirror of Dreams" and "Kiss Scene" EP followed, all heavily influenced by the iconic synth-pop and movie soundtrack music of the 1980s. His 2015 release, "Haunting Me" EP marked an evolution in his sound, featuring guitar-heavy cuts like "Still Haunting Me" and "I Wanna Know". His newest record, "Vanishings" is an even larger statement of that evolution, combining '80s influenced AOR, pop rock, and synth-pop to create a sound uniquely his own. In 2017, Jon will commence work on what will be his debut album for Frontiers, scheduled for release in 2018. Jon says: “I can't imagine a better home for my music than Frontiers. They are the perfect label to release my upcoming album and solidify the direction in style I've been heading in over the last few releases. I am very excited about this new record and can't wait to share my new music with you all!”

  17. From FB: Hey everybody! I just wanted to take a minute to say hi today, especially since we have soooo many more people on the page now. Amazing! And, for those of you who are kind of new, you may not know I am working on my first solo album. For those of you who aren't new, you know it's been taking a long time! LOL I want to thank you all for your patience. After all the touring and the new Hardline album release last year, it really set things back. But...the album is releasing this fall, it is called ONE VOICE and it is an absolute privilege to be making this album with YOU. So...what's this record gonna be? Is Johnny going country? Death metal....or, dear lord....grunge? hahaha!! Never! I'm the same guy you've known since the early 90's when the first Hardline album Double Eclipse released. I love a big ballad, I love guitar driven rock, melodic hard rock. If you've listened to Hardline, you know who I am....and for my Crush 40 listeners, you know me too. I love a song that lifts you up, gets you moving and gets you in a positive frame of mind. Today we're sharing one of the songs that will be on the record. You can see more of this update, and the other updates by going to my Pledge Music page and signing up. You can get involved at any level, from the digital download, to the solo CD or the extra "EP" that I'll be recording - yes, I am finally recording the song Colorblind! So whatever floats your musical boat - just remember that ALL pledges get you the digital download of the album and access to all the exclusive updates. I'm so excited to be heading into the final stretch here and couldn't be doing it without you. A big portion of the money raised for this album is going directly to help a young man named Joe Barber, in his recovery from an accident last year that left him paralyzed. So not only are you helping make a record, you're helping me 'pay if forward'. The power of music is amazing - especially when it is used to heal. Thank you all, from my heart. ~Johnny Listen to 'Drive': https://www.facebook.com/johnnygioeliofficial/videos/1771525172863158/
