  1. Bit Of Interesting news... Whitesnake add singer Dino Jelusick to line-up Big news in the Whitesnake camp as former Animal Drive frontman Dino Jelusick is now a part of the legendary band. It is not exactly clear in what capacity that Jelusick will be in the group but one assumes that he will be sharing the lead vocal duties with long-time frontman and band founder David Coverdale. Jelusick will be taking part in Whitesnake‘s upcoming The Farewell Tour MMXXII. The following message was posted on Jelusick‘s Facebook page earlier today: “I am beyond honoured to be part of one of my favourite bands of all time. To get the phone call from David Coverdale is something every singer and musician of my generation can only dream of, it still feels completely surreal. I cannot wait to start hitting the road with Whitesnake and as the great DC said to me himself, to give a piece of my identity to the sound of this iconic band.” Whitesnake‘s website indicates in part: “I am absolutely delighted to welcome the extremely gifted DINO JELUSICK to Whitesnake. We’ve had our eyes & ears on him since we played Zagreb together 2 years ago. You’re going to love him!” – David Coverdale Dino Jelusick is a singer/multi-instrumentalist from Croatia. He is a member of multi platinum selling band Trans-Siberian Orchestra and was previously part of Dirty Shirley (with George Lynch), Animal Drive and recorded with many others. Dino has been singing, touring and recording since the age of 5. Other than being a frontman, his main instrument are keyboards but he also plays bass, guitar and drums. He finished music academy and did theatre work.” In terms of the dispute between Italian record label Frontiers Music Srl and Jelusick where the former alleges that it contractually has the rights to the exclusive services of the latter for recordings, Whitesnake did release their last two studio albums Forevermore and Flesh & Blood via Frontiers Music Srl. Although this is pure speculation on the part of Sleaze Roxx, one could see Jelusick helping Coverdale with the singing duties on Whitesnake‘s upcoming The Farewell Tour MMXXII and getting groomed to perhaps replace Coverdale in Whitesnake after that tour.
  2. New album 'Soul To Soul' out November 12 through Frontiers.
  3. From Frontiers: Frontiers Music Srl is pleased to welcome UK melodic rockers Blood Red Saints back to the label. 2021 will see the release of the fourth studio album from the English rockers. Titled 'Undisputed', the album is also a return to the melodic rock style as heard on the band's debut album "Speedway". Written during the Covid-19 pandemic, the recording of the album has taken place at guitarist Lee Revills' home studio. "We didn't set out to write a certain type of record, we brought ideas to the table and they happened to be melodic. As we live through the process and can reflect on these songs, this feels like it is shaping up to be our strongest album to date," says Revill. Blood Red Saints was formed at the end of 2014 by singer Pete Godfrey and bassist Rob Naylor from the band Angels or Kings. They quickly got to work writing their debut album. Their search for a name ended with the chance discovery of a semi-legendary Speedway team “The Blood Red Saints”, who were formed in the late 1920s in Brooklyn, New York. Their leader 'Freddie Rendetti' became synonymous with the team and was a fiery, colorful character who ultimately lived the fast life a little too fast. The band loved the name and ran with it. James Martin of VEGA came along and was instrumental in getting the band signed to Frontiers Music Srl for their debut album, "Speedway". James and his twin brother Tom also co-wrote two songs on the album and none other than Harry Hess (Harem Scarem) took care of the mastering of the album. The band’s debut album was an impressive slice of classic British AOR, following in the traditions of early Dare, FM, and Newman. The band then went on to record two well-received albums, "Love Hate Conspiracies" and "Pulse", for AOR Heaven, but have now returned to Frontiers for their forthcoming fourth album, "Undisputed". Stay tuned for more news on the album and the first taste of music soon! bloodredsaints.net www.facebook.com/bloodredsaints
  4. From Frontiers: We get A LOT of questions about what Swedish rockers Cruzh have been up to and we are pleased to finally give you some answers! See below for a message from the band and enjoy this acoustic version of "Aim For The Head", showcasing their new singer, Alex Waghorn. We plan on releasing the band's next studio album in 2020. “It’s been a while rockers! Some time ago we found ourselves lost on some bumpy roads, but now we’re back on track again, hungry for more rock n’ roll. We’re very happy to announce our new front diva (haha) Alex! He really, truly is the piece we’ve been missing from the start and the stuff we’re recording right now will surely knock your socks off. Our new acoustic version of 'Aim For The Head' is just a small hint of what’s to come…and a way for you guys to 'meet' Alex! Get ready for the resurrected, harder, better, stronger CRUZH.” - Dennis, Anton, & Matt “I’m truly happy to be in this band! After just a few days I felt like I was part of the CRUZH family. I’m looking forward to sharing the stage with these three amazing guys and of course to see all of you people on the road!” - Alex CRUZH: Alex Waghorn - vocals Dennis Butabi Borg - bass Anton Joensson - guitar Matt Silver – drums www.facebook.com/cruzhofficial

  7. From his facebook page: I’ve been yapping and hinting about what I have been working on (amongst MANY other things) the past 2 months…and now I can finally tell what it is. With all of this lock-down-time we’ve all been graciously handed (sarcasm), Frontiers and I came up with an idea that I think you’re gonna love! I am now finishing a new album of JSS ‘career’ songs that most of you know already throughout my life but as a twist, I have invited other singers/brothers into it as a DUETS smorgasbord, in fact the album will be called “Jeff Scott Soto – The Duets Collection Vol. 1”. Wanna know the songlist and invitees? Sure, why not, here you go: 01- Livin’ The Life (ROCK STAR) with Erik Martensson (Eclipse/W.E.T.) 02- Don’t Let It End (YNGWIE MALMSTEEN) – with Dino Jelusick (Animal Drive) 03- Mysterious (TALISMAN) – with Eric Martin (Mr. Big) 04- Believe in Me (JSS) – with Nathan James (Inglorious) 05- Coming Home (SOUL SIRKUS) – with Deen Castronovo (Journey, Bad English) 06- I’ll Be Waiting (TALISMAN) – with Alirio Netto (Shaman, Queen Extravaganza) 07- Callin’ All Girls (EYES) – with Russell Allen (Symphony X) 08- Colour My XTC (TALISMAN) – with Renan Zonta (Electric Mob) 09- Warrior (AXEL RUDI PELL) – with Johnny Gioeli (Hardline, Axel Rudi Pell) 10- Holding On (JSS) – with BJ (SOTO, Spektra) 11- Again 2 B Found (HUMANIMAL) – with Mats Leven (Candlemass) It was a DREAM to cast these voices and I am so amped for you to hear the results…I believe we’re releasing in the Fall this year but are on the home stretch of the mixes as I type this!
  8. New album 'Changes' out July 9th through Frontiers. ADV is involved...
  9. From Frontiers: Frontiers Music Srl is pleased to announce the signing of the Swedish melodic rock combo RIAN to a multi-album deal! The first release will be the band's sophomore album, “Twenty-Three,” which is currently taking shape under the direction of producer Daniel Flores (Find Me, The Murder Of My Sweet). The new songs were written during 2018-2020 and based on melodies and lyrics written by vocalist/guitarist Richard Andermyr. The initial ideas from Richard were crafted into songs that the band arranged together: first with Richard and drummer Jan Johannsson and later on with the full band. RIAN released their debut album “Out Of The Darkness” in July 2017, which was well received by fans and melodic rock media alike. The band made its live debut during 2018, which began the process of the band becoming more and more of a live unit. Add the amazing lead guitars of Tobias Jakobsson into the mix with the band and you have the cocktail that makes up the RIAN 2.0 sound. "We are really pleased to sign with Frontiers Music Srl. Since our first contact, the label has been nothing but helpful. We feel right at home with the support we’ve received so far and look forward to using this relationship to enable us to provide our fans with a steady supply of quality music for the years to come. Our sound can, in the easiest way, be explained as a modern version of classic melodic rock music, the way it was produced in the second half of the 80’s. The sound is American, but the melodies and chord progressions have very strong Swedish roots. Influences such as Bon Jovi, Dokken, Europe, Queensryche, Survivor, and Winger can be heard in the sound. Also, more modern vibes the likes of Alter Bridge have a presence in our music,” explains Richard Andermyr. Keep an eye out for RIAN’s return in the coming months! Band Members: Richard Andermyr: Vocals, Guitar Jan Johansson: Drums Jonas Melin: Bass Tobias Jakobsson: Lead Guitar http://www.rianrocks.comhttp://facebook.com/rianisalive
  10. Press release: Legendary hard rockers Night Ranger are set to release their 12th studio album, "ATBPO” on August 6, 2021 via Frontiers Music Srl. "ATBPO" stands for And The Band Played On, an ode to making music during the covid era. It will be available on CD and Vinyl (several limited edition, color vinyl versions), as well as digitally across all streaming platforms. The band began writing the album in early 2020, amid the onset of the global pandemic. After narrowing down the song selection and tightening them up to their well-known rock ‘n roll sound, the band hit the studio, although separately, due to the times we are in. Throughout "ATBPO", we hear Night Ranger continuing their hot streak that kicked off with 2011's "Somewhere In California". Ten years on, and two highly acclaimed albums later, "High Road" and "Don't Let Up", the band's latest studio work shows them still burning with that high octane hard rock energy they are known for. Night Ranger has always had a knack for killer melodies, intricate instrumentation, and captivating lyrics; "ATBPO" delivers all of that and more. Having sold over 17 million albums worldwide, performed across more than 4000 stages, and enjoyed a radio audience that exceeds 1 billion, Night Ranger has both epitomized and transcended the arena rock sound and style well beyond that era. With multiple songs having a significant impact on popular culture, Night Ranger continues to grow their fanbase. The band is proof that powerful songs alongside incredibly talented musicians is the perfect formula for continued success. Night Ranger is Jack Blades (bass, vocals), Kelly Keagy (drums, vocals), Brad Gillis (lead & rhythm guitars), Eric Levy (keyboards), and Keri Kelli (lead & rhythm guitars). Tracklist: 1. Coming For You 2. Bring It All Home To Me 3. Breakout 4. Hard To Make It Easy 5. Can’t Afford A Hero 6. Cold As December 7. Dance 8. The Hardest Road 9. Monkey 10. A Lucky Man 11. Tomorrow 12. Savior (Bonus Track - CD & LP versions only)
  11. Another announcement over the holidays from Frontiers. "CROWNE – Another achievement from the label side was to put together this supergroup from the North! Featuring Alex Strandell on vocals (Art Nation), Jona Tee on keyboards (H.E.A.T), Love Magnusson on guitars (Dynazty), John Levén on bass (Europe), and Christian Lundkvist on drums (The Poodles) this record is every bit as good as you may imagine. Actually… better!" Sounds great! facebook
  12. From Frontiers: Current The Dark Element (and ex-Nightwish) vocalist Anette Olzon is set to release her new solo album, "Strong" via Frontiers Music Srl on September 10, 2021. “'Parasite' is a song about those who create disaster in this world with their lies, their schemes, their greed and hate. Hiding their intentions behind a respectable facade,” says Anette Olzon of the albums' first single. “Living in a world of a bit of chaos with a pandemic, crazy politics, violence, social media behavior and people venting their opinions upon others all the time is the foundation behind the idea of the lyrics for the album. Musically, I wanted a much heavier album, yet with strong melodies and took my inspiration from bands I like such as Dimmu Borgir and In Flames,” she continues. This will be Anette's second solo album, following 2014's "Shine," and offers a harder, faster musical offering compared to the debut. More importantly, "Strong" stakes a claim for Anette’s well-deserved standing as one of the world's top female metal vocalists. The music for "Strong" was written and composed together with acclaimed Swedish guitarist and producer Magnus Karlsson. Together, Anette and Magnus managed to create an outstanding collection of songs which showcase Anette’s enormous vocal range alongside Karlsson’s incendiary riffs. The songs are heavy, but still quite melodic and contemporary in their approach to the genre style. Additionally, "Strong" is mixed by Jacob Hansen (Pretty Maids, Volbeat, The Dark Element, etc.). All in all, “Strong” is an album that masters the borders between heaviness and hookiness, all while showing an artist who doesn't rest on her laurels, but heads boldly into the future. Tracklist: 1. Bye Bye Bye 2. Sick Of You 3. I Need To Stay 4. Strong 5. Parasite 6. Sad Lullaby 7. Fantastic Fanatic 8. Who Can Save Them 9. Catcher Of My Dreams 10. Hear Them Roar 11. Roll The Dice LINE-UP: Anette Olzon - Vocals Magnus Karlsson - Guitars Anders Köllerfors - Drums Johan Husgafvel – Bass facebook

  17. Wow. 2 top female vocalists. Can't be other than great. From Frontiers: Frontiers Music Srl is positively thrilled to announce the formation of one of their most exciting new projects, a collaboration between powerhouse Finnish vocalists Noora Louhimo (Battle Beast) and Netta Laurenne (Smackbound). Laurenne/Louhimo are currently hard at work recording music for their debut album for the label. Guitars will be handled by Nino Laurenne and drums by Sampo Haapaniemi. Bass duties will be determined soon and guest guitar solos are also being plotted. The album is currently tentatively planned for release in 2021. Comments Netta Laurenne, ”I’ve had the idea about a possible collaboration with Noora incubating for a few years. Once the pandemic started and cleared out calendars for both of us, it felt like a perfect time to reach out to Noora and start this project. She is such a talented singer who masters various styles and on top of that, simply an awesome person. We are both initially from the same town, so it feels extra special to get us, two metal singers from Tampere, working together on an album full of kick ass metal. This is also a collaboration with my husband, music producer, and guitarist (Thunderstone) Nino Laurenne, with whom I’ve written the songs for the album. We’ve already started recording the album and just can’t wait for it to find its way to you in 2021 as it’ll be FANFUNTASTIC!" Comments Noora Louhimo, "When Netta asked me to join in this project I was happily surprised. I had followed her as a singer for years and always admired her soulful and powerful vocals and her way of expressing herself. Now that we have gotten to know each other a bit better through this project, it's been amazing to realise how much in common we have as singers and as people. We both have similar idols and influences music wise and we both love singing with soul, blues, edge, and power. She's definitely my long lost soul sister and I'm super excited singing with her on an album filled with our explosive passion for music.” Adds Frontiers President/Head of A&R Serafino Perugino, "I believe Netta is a truly gifted and talented artist and this is one of a few records besides Smackbound that we will start a fruitful creative and artistic cooperation with her on. To pair her with Noora [Louhimo], who literally blows everyone away with her smashing vocals in not only her main band Battle Beast, but also on Magnus Karlsson's Free Fall record, and another very special record we have coming, is incredibly exciting and an honor." Stay tuned for more news on the debut Laurenne/Louhimo album and in the meantime, follow their freshly launch social media pages to keep up with their progress. https://www.facebook.com/laurennelouhimo
  18. From Frontiers: Frontiers Music Srl is pleased to announce the signing of Circus Of Rock to the label. Circus of Rock is a new band, or rather a massive musical project, started and fronted by drummer Mirka Rantanen, who has a long career in the Finnish hard rock scene. He has played on 30+ albums during his 30 year career, including releases by King Company, Thunderstone, Raskasta Joulua, Kotipelto, Warmen, Northern Kings, Revolution Renaissance, and more. In addition, ten years ago he created the very popular heavy rock band for kids called ‘Hevisaurus’, for which he was awarded the Emma Award in 2011 (the Finnish equivalent of a Grammy). “A few years ago I started to think about recording a solo album; however, I didn’t want to do just a traditional solo album. That’s because people often think a solo album is mainly to allow the musicians to show off their fantastic skills and magnificent instruments, but I wanted to focus more on the great songs that don’t happen to have extra drum solos. I also wanted to include many fantastic colleagues with whom I have played over the years on this album, and in addition a couple of great guest singers. My intention is to get the album released in 2021, when I turn 50. And now this will happen thanks to the Frontiers label. The album will be a kind of milestone in my professional career, my long-term 'dream what is finally coming true' type of thing," says Rantanen. Confirmed singers and musicians appearing on the album include: - Jarkko Ahola - Rick Altzi (Masterplan) - Johnny Gioeli (Hardline) - Marco Hietala (Nightwish) - Antti Railio - David Readman (Pink Cream 69) - Elize Ryd (Amaranthe) ...and musicians from bands such as Stratovarius, Brother Firetribe, Masterplan and lots more.

  19. New album 'Anarchy And Unity' out September 17 through Frontiers. More details soon.
  20. From Frontiers: Frontiers Music Srl is thrilled to announce the signing of Swedish AOR band Houston for a multi-album deal. The band is hard at work recording their yet untitled fourth studio album under the direction of former member and AOR guru Ricky Delin, who will co-write and produce the new album. “It feels good to have Ricky back behind the wheel on this album. He is an incredible songwriter and we all know the great work he’s done on our previous albums. This will be the Houston album above all others,” says singer Hank Erix. “We’re truly excited about the new music that we’re working on. We knew right from the start that we wanted to go back to our roots and make a classic AOR sounding album again. After all, this was the sound that put us on the map in the first place and what we do best. Sonically, the new record will be the more refined sibling to our first two albums. We’ve had a decade to grow as songwriters, musicians, and most importantly as a band and I think this really shows,” adds Carl Hammar, the band’s guitarist. ”This album and the songs are one big homage to our favourite AOR heroes such as Survivor, Foreigner and Journey, but also influences from John O´Banion, Meatloaf, John Farnham, and many more. We wanted to make a great AOR album and make it big, fresh, and truly bombastic. And if you want to make a bombastic AOR album, Ricky Delin is the go to producer. Ricky, who played a big part in creating the Houston sound on our first albums, was as excited as us about the idea of working together again and jumped at the opportunity,” continues Carl. Houston released their self-titled debut album in 2010 and landed at number one on Classic Rock Magazine’s AOR chart that year, beating out some stiff competition. The band then went on to play the festival circuit with appearances at Sweden Rock, Download Festival (UK), and Rock of Ages (Germany), as well as touring the UK with Swedish sleaze rockers Crashdïet. Houston’s second album, “Relaunch” featured a cover song called ‘Runaway’ that became the soundtrack to Red Bull’s own Danny MacAskill’s Extreme BMX video ‘Imaginate’ which has almost 100 million views on YouTube and over 1.3 million plays on Spotify and counting. ”It feels great to be part of the Frontiers family, to work with a label that shares our taste in music and has the muscle to get it out to the masses. Needless to say, many (if not most) of our heros are signed to Frontiers so they are definitely doing something right. Houston and Frontiers deserve each other!” concludes Hank. Fans can look forward to another classic AOR masterpiece in the making with a release pencilled in for the end of 2021/early 2022. www.facebook.com/Houstonsweden

  22. New album out June 11th through Frontiers.
  23. New solo album from Perfect Plan's singer 'The Rumble' out June 18th. And happy news for all of you: ADV is involved
  24. From Frontiers: Frontiers Music Srl is pleased to announce the signing of Sweden's Seventh Crystal to the label for a multi-album deal. This new band was put together by singer Kristian Fyhr (Perpetual Etude) who initially wanted to pursue a solo project; however, when the songs started to take form, he realized he wanted to involve more musicians. So, he moved to vocals only and brought in Johan Älvsång (Pinstripe Conspiracy, Lamashtu) on keyboards and piano and Olof Gadd (Osukaru) on bass to start. The line-up was then rounded out by Anton Roos on drums and Emil Dornerus on guitar. Seventh Crystal's music can be described as arena rock with melodic rock influences. In the words of Kristian Fyhr, “I would describe the band’s music as an “intelligent” rock style, but still very melodic. My songwriting is very varied. I like starting a song in a pop style and then beefing it up and making it rock. I am a big admirer of the Cheiron Studio and Max Martin, so my influences come mainly from there. Then of course all the other guys in the band bring their own influences and the result is totally Seventh Crystal!” The band is currently residing in Nordic Sound Lab in Sweden, recording drums for the debut album. Follow the band on social media to track their progress and keep your ears open for more from this exciting new band! www.facebook.com/seventhcrystalband
  25. Press release: The band first came together when guitarist, composer, and producer Srdjan Brankovic and his wife Nevena Brankovic, who is an academic pianist and singer, met singer Ana Nikolic. Ana had spent the past few years fronting local bands, but after meeting Srdjan and Nevena, they started collaborating in the studio together. While working on some new ideas, Srdjan thought how interesting it would be to include Ana’s vocals in addition to Nevena’s in their recordings. After a couple of recordings were finished, they were overjoyed with the results and thus some of their first demos were born. These were the forerunners of the music that was presented to Frontiers and gained them a deal. The lineup for the band was then completed with the addition of drummer Marko Milojevic. Both Srdjan and Marko are members of the most successful Serbian progressive metal band, AlogiA. Throughout his career, Srdjan has played on many festivals and tours, recorded and collaborated on countless studio and live albums, and opened for some well-known bands such as Whitesnake, Ian Paice, Apocalyptica, Savatage, and more. He was also a member of Michael Matijevic’s live band in Bulgaria. On his “Expedition Delta” and “Alogia” albums, he collaborated with names such as Tim ‘Ripper’ Owens, Mark Boals, Erik Norlander, Gary Wehrkamp, Fabio Lione, and Hansi Kursch, among others. Brankovic states, ”I am happy to say that we signed a contract with the premier rock and metal label Frontiers and I am very excited that my priority in the forthcoming years will be cooperation with them. I seem to have found my music a home in the best place in the music universe, since I believe that Frontiers is a label with the best ideas and fantastic projects and releases, which have made the rock scene look far more beautiful and powerful. We start the collaboration with a newly formed band, created in a combination of ideas with Frontiers. At the suggestion of the Director of “Frontiers”, we agreed that the name of the band will be “The Big Deal” and It will be a “must-have” for fans of melodic rock/metal. Next to me on guitar, a very exciting line-up will feature piano-virtuoso-lady who sings at the same time, Nevena, who I would characterize as an original appearance on the rock scene. Beside Nevena, another rock lady is involved, as a singer. Her name is Ana and she is a r’n’r lover, with a very authentic and beautiful voice. Marko, a friend from my parent-band, will be in charge of the drums, and a well known Frontiers associated rock star will be in charge of the bass lines (stay tuned on that). We are already greatly in the process of recording demos for the album. Needless to say we’re absolutely thrilled about this. Cheers and stay tuned for more info!”
