Press release: BREAKING NEWS: Frontiers Music Srl is pleased to announce the signing of an extremely promising melodic rock band from Finland, THE NIGHTS. The Nights was formed in the summer of 2015 by Sami Hyde (vocals) and Ilkka Wirtanen (guitar). Both Sami and Ilkka have successful careers in music, in Finland and abroad. Sami has been a singer for many acts and projects, including the Tony Mills Band (SHY, TNT) in 2008 which also included Geoff Nichols (Black Sabbath) on keyboards and Neil Hibbs (SHY) on guitar. He has also written songs for many artists, including The Magnificent ("If It Takes All Night", "Lost", and "Drive"). Ilkka Wirtanen is best known for his work as a producer with international acts like glam metal band Reckless Love, for whom he has produced four albums and co-written many of their popular songs, including "Hot" and "Night On Fire". He has also produced several other rock bands (Baton Rogue Morgue, Hellcity Punks) and worked as a mixer for international acts (S.E.X. Department). THE NIGHTS was formed because Sami and Ilkka felt a common need to write songs that "make you feel good and also give tribute to our everlasting heroes in music, for example TNT and Yngwie Malmsteen. Frontiers interest was piqued by their songs featuring a superb mixture of classic pop melodies and modern melodic rock/metal production and the band was signed!

Debut album out January 30th. I'm digging the first single alot! From FB: "Wake the Nations” serve international hard rock with respect for the 80’s. The album “Sign of Heart” is full of featuring artists from all over the globe. Killer songs are saturated with today’s pure sound and professional musicians behind their instruments - a setup that makes this record the coolest and the most diverse melodic hard rock album in years! International flavour is compiled by Estef Martinez’s strong female performance, Dado Topić’s deep and unique vocals, bunch of Finnish front-row heavy metal singers (e.g. Taage Laiho, Janne Hurme, Nils Nordling), as well as Alan Jackson’s and Oz Rivera’s unconventional lyrics, some to mention. As an example, Dado Topić is widely known and followed not only in his home country, but also in other parts of Europe (partly because of the Eurovision contest representation back in 2007). Dado won “The best rock singer and song writer during the past 40 years in Croatia “ -award in 2006. "Sign of Heart" album kicks ass with 10 diverse tracks from traditional hard rock of the 80’s all the way to more modern, yet melodic, rock ambience of 21’st century. The lyrical journey gets you through the storms of love and misunderstandings to which most of us can easily identify with.
