  4. 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
  5. From Frontiers: L.A. GUNS, featuring Phil Lewis and Tracii Guns, have released a new single, 'Let You Down'. The song was written and recorded this past month while the band is in the midst of work on their next studio album. The band was so struck by the song that they felt the need to release it immediately rather than sit on it for the next studio album. It may or may not appear on said album. Of the song, Phil Lewis says, "This is our new single, 'Let You Down,' a deep haunting work and words from a tormented soul. It was recorded during quarantine, so Tracii laid down his guitar tracks in Denmark, I did my vocals at home in Las Vegas, and Adam Hamilton played drums and mixed it in LA. Under normal circumstances, it would have been recorded in a more traditional way, but somehow the isolation adds to the atmosphere of this very cool song. I’m sure you’re going to love it. Cheers." Tracii Guns adds, "This song just appeared at the right time, while we were writing and recording on different continents. Also, we won’t be performing anytime soon and it seems like the type of song that our fans can hold on to for awhile." L.A. Guns are currently writing and recording songs for a new studio album tentatively due for release via Frontiers Music Srl in late 2020/early 2021. This will be the third studio album since the much welcome reunion of the band's core foundation of vocalist Phil Lewis and guitarist Tracii Guns. It will follow the well received studio albums "The Missing Peace" and "The Devil You Know", plus the live release, "Made In Milan" and a covers EP, "Another Xmas In Hell". L.A. Guns is: Phil Lewis - vocals Tracii Guns - guitars Ace Von Johnson - guitars Johnny Martin - bass Scot Coogan - drums http://www.lagunsmusic.com https://www.facebook.com/L.A.GunsOffi...
  6. New album 'Soul To Soul' out November 12 through Frontiers.
  7. From Frontiers: Frontiers Music Srl is pleased to announce the signing of Memoria avenue to the label. Memoria Avenue is a new Melodic Rock/AOR band from Norway showcasing an artistic union between guitarist Tor Talle and the awesome new singer Jan Le’Brandt. Their debut album is currently in the works. ”I`m so proud to be part of the Frontiers family and it is an honor to work with such wonderful and talented people,” says Tor Talle. Tor is a skilled guitarist, best known for his AOR project, Northern Light. He has also worked, either writing songs and/or performing with, on records from melodic rock giants such as Joe Lynn Turner (Rainbow, Deep Purple), Fergie Frederiksen (ex-TOTO), Rob Moratti (ex-SAGA), Steve Overland (FM), and the late Tony Mills (TNT, Shy). Jan Le’ Brandt has roots in the magnificent north of Norway, but moved to the southern part in his early teens. His voice is sometimes hoarse and rough, but also moves into a more delicate and sensitive style. Jan masters the whole spectrum to the fullest, with his soulful presence both on stage and in the studio. He has already previously released some material as a solo artist and appeared in the cover band Svigermord, and formerly sang for Big City (Frontiers Music Srl), but Memoria Avenue is his chance to truly shine. Memoria Avenue is yet another absolutely stunning newcomer to the AOR scene brought to you by Frontiers Music Srl. With a sound and style that will particularly appeal to fans of stylish, ’80s oriented melodic rock bands, think Journey and newer bands like Perfect Plan and Work of Art , with a hint of that breezy, feel good sound which is not as easy to find these days. Listening to these songs will transport you to the feeling of driving by the sea with the windows rolled down without a care in the world. Certainly not a bad feeling in this day and age… Jan Le’Brandt: Lead vocal and Backing Vocals Tor Talle: Guitars, Keyboard and Bass Dag Selboskar: Keyboards Svenn Huneide: Bass Bjørn Olav Lauvdal: Drums Additional Musicians: Mick Devine: Backing and Harmony Vocals Mats Ericsson: Drums on Stuck Bengt Risåsen: Bass on Sometimes Marianne Hagen: Female voice on If You Fall www.memoriaavenue.com www.facebook.com/memoriaavenue
  8. From Frontiers: Frontiers Music Srl is pleased to announce the upcoming release of French melodic metal band Devoid's second album, "Lonely Eye Movement" on October 15, 2021. "The music was written with Jorris Guilbaud and me and Carsten [Schulz] wrote the lyrics. It's a song about the horror of dealing with depression, trying to make your way through every single day. It doesn't matter at all what others might tell you about what or who you are, the struggle never stops. We wanted to give a melancholic atmosphere to these songs, but we wanted to leave hope at the end," says guitarist Shad Mae of the album's title track. Of the album's overall sound, Shad continues, "the idea was to achieve the perfect mix between my heaviest influences (Evergrey, Devin Townsend, Soilwork, etc.) and AOR bands I like (Winger, White Heart, Giant, Strangeways, etc.) and to produce an album which is very catchy and timeless." Devoid's second album overall, “Lonely Eye Movement” is a huge step forward for the band and the perfect vehicle to introduce them to a larger international audience. Coming four years after their debut album, “Cup of Tears”, musically, the band develops the melodic and slightly progressive sound of the debut and makes "Lonely Eye Movement" perfectly suited for fans of hard hitting, but very melodic metal. Devoid is the brainchild of French guitarist extraordinaire Shad Mae. Combining technical finesse and outstanding arrangements with extremely memorable choruses and hooks, Devoid is rounded out by powerhouse German vocalist Carsten 'Lizard' Schulz (Evidence One, Book of Reflections), guitarist Gwen Kerjan, keyboardist Jorris Guilbaud, bassist Geoffrey Shob Neau, and drummer Benjamin Lesous. The band came to the attention of the label when they submitted their music via the label's Frontiers & Beyond website (https://www.frontiersandbeyond.com) and instantly caught the label staff's ears with their hooky, melodic style. Tracklist: 1. Lonely Eye Movement 2. Man Without Fear 3. Impostor 4. Destination Heaven 5. Waiting For The Storm 6. In The Absence Of Holiness 7. Mirror Maze 8. Hands Of Salvation 9. Stroboscope Life 10. Martial Hearts 11. Wood And Wind Line-Up: Carsten 'Lizard' Schulz - Vocals Shad Mae - Guitars Gwen Kerjan - Guitars Jorris Guilbaud - Keyboards Geoffrey 'Shob' Neau - Bass Benjamin Lesous - Drums facebook
  9. 'Above The Beyond' out October 15 through Frontiers. More details to follow...
  10. From Frontiers: Frontiers Music Srl is thrilled to announce the signing of a new L.A. based band, GANG OF SOULS. It is an artistic union between none other than vocalist Terry Ilous (XYZ, ex-Great White), together with famed producer and bassist Fabrizio Grossi (Glenn Hughes, Supersonic Blues Machine, Eric Gales, etc.). The album’s recording has already commenced in L.A. and the guys hope to complete it in the first half of the new year. Rounding out the lineup are Serge Simic on guitar (The Slam, Supersonic Blues Machine) and Tony Morra on drums. "I am very excited to announce that I will be officially joining the Frontiers family in 2020 as a member of the band Gang Of Souls,” says Terry Ilous. "My entire career has been about creating the best music I possibly can for the fans and with Frontiers, it is a pleasure to join a company with such strong products, production, and the ability to share it with a broad audience. With Frontiers and producer and writer Fabrizio Grossi at the helm, it will allow me to focus on the music and grow as an artist, while also being able to expand my work both nationally and internationally. I am extremely honored to join such an amazing roster of talent and look forward to what 2020 has to bring. Expect to hear a lot more from me and Frontiers moving forward. I invite you all to follow me on my social media sites and join me on this journey.” Fabrizio Grossi adds, “I am really excited to work with my buddies Serge, Tony, and Terry on this new adventure called Gang of Souls. Terry will be the centerpiece and I am sure he’ll turn even more heads than what he’s been admirably doing since XYZ’s debut. He’s an amazing singer and a hell of a funny guy. I am glad the public will be able to get to know this other side of him. This record represents the type of straight ahead rock music that really makes us move. There won’t be any frills and sweetness, that I can promise, but lots of balls out groove, loud guitars, and soulful melodies.” Musically, GANG OF SOULS music will lean towards a classic hard rock sound with unforgettable melodies and a solid bluesy background. Think Bad Company meets early Foreigner, but with more current production. A release in the second half of 2020 is tentatively anticipated.
  11. From Frontiera: Frontiers Music Srl is happy to announce the release of Swedish band The Murder of My Sweet's new album, "A Gentleman's Legacy," on December 10, 2021. THE MURDER OF MY SWEET’s sixth studio album, "A Gentleman's Legacy” is a concept album that, interestingly enough, picks up where the last album from Mind’s Eye, TMOMS drummer/producer Daniel Flores' prog rock band, left off with their 2007 release, “A Gentleman’s Hurricane”. Joining TMOMS on guitar for this record is none other than Mike Palace, who is a big fan of the Mind’s Eye album, and on bass, Patrick Janson, who is very familiar with the prog genre having played with Platitude for several years. "The album took about three months to write and about five months to record from start to end and is probably the longest time I have ever taken in a studio,” says Daniel Flores. "I was afraid of the time I had to take to make a worthy record not only for Mind's Eye fans, but for our amazing TMOMS fans, the fans that actually made this whole thing possible!” As stated above, the connection between The Murder Of My Sweet and Mind's Eye is drummer, producer, and songwriter Daniel Flores. Daniel started TMOMS after Mind’s Eye released "A Gentleman's Hurricane”. The aforementioned record was a concept album about Adam Evangelista, a former CIA agent and hired gun who had gone rogue. Adam's story was told throughout the album via confessions to a priest, the priest that had actually raised Adam and had done him wrong with severe punishments, probably causing Adam to become the ice cold murderer he was. In the song 'Ashes to Ashes (In Land Lullaby)', Adam gets to see his daughter Pandora for the first time, a young Mexican/American who is desperately trying to find her father. And here is where we pick up the story with the new The Murder Of My Sweet album, "A Gentlemans Legacy". Pandora is now a grown woman and is going down the same road as her father, taking revenge on the ones who were giving her father Adam his orders, the infamous Illuminati, our antagonist on this new album. The album tells the story of Pandora Evangelista and her journey, facing the challenges her father had to endure and suffering the ultimate punishment: remorse, the one thing no one can escape from. The protagonist is played by TMOMS vocalist Angelica Rylin, whose lyrics show a woman's intuition and what she would go through in such a situation, giving the character a woman's touch while collaborating with the original creator of the story, Daniel Flores. Flores was challenged to go back to his progressive roots for this album and the sound is influenced by Queensrÿche and Genesis, but with his own personal touches highlighting strong melodies and letting the music stay in line with the development of the story. Enjoy this magnificent, and unexpected, work of art for both the music and the storytelling! Tracklist: 1. Six Feet Under 2. A Ghost Of A Chance 3. Damnation 4. The Wheels Of Time 5. Winged 6. Kill Your Darlings 7. Fathers Eyes 8. Rise Above 9. Trick Of The Devil 10. Heads Or Tails 11. Please, Don't Wait Up 12. Finding Closure LINE-UP: Angelica Rylin - vocals Daniel Flores – drums Mike Palace – guitar Patrick Janson - bass www.facebook.com/tmomsband
  12. Press release from Frontiers: Frontiers Music Srl is thrilled to welcome Swedish rock band Cap Outrun to the label’s roster. Their label debut is slated for release in late 2021, with more details to follow in the coming weeks. Cap Outrun formed in Sweden in 2007 when Andrée Theander and Erik Gafvelin Wiss met at a Swedish university for music production and started to make music together. The two youngsters wrote and recorded a lot of songs and with a little help from a bunch of friends, six of the songs ended up on the very first Cap Outrun release, ”Influence Grind” (2008). The music was somewhat complex with odd time signatures and unexpected song structures, but still contained memorable melodies and pop-flavored choruses. This perfect blend of rock, metal, and jazz made them fairly well-known within the underground world of prog rock lovers for a period of time. Andrée and Erik graduated from university and they decided to go their separate musical ways. Since then, they have stayed good friends, but were working on their own careers: Andrée as a session player, guitar teacher and with his own AOR/Westcoast project Theander Expression, while Erik started to build his own studio and mainly focus on producing and mixing records by other bands, like Creye, Cruzh, and Arctic Rain to name a few. Cap Outrun was essentially on hiatus after that self-released EP…until now! ”It feels great to work with Frontiers on this release and I’m anxious to hear what the label’s followers will say about it. Ever since Mr. Big, who’s one of my all time favorite bands, released their ”What If” record, I’ve been following the label’s awesome releases and I’m both impressed and grateful for what they’re doing for the rock music scene today. I’m thrilled about joining them with Cap Outrun and everybody in the band is very excited about this!” says guitarist Andrée Theander. Although Erik continues with his studio work and he is still involved in Cap Outrun, he has decided to take a step back as the main keyboardist and that spot has been given to the very talented session player André Egbo. Vocalist Chandler Mogel (Double Vision, Outloud), bassist Linus ”Mr. Gul” Abrahamson (Andromeda, Constanica), and drummer Johan Ludvig Rask round out the line-up. The writing and production process for the upcoming album, ”High On Deception” has been a very successful collaboration between Andrée and Erik. Musical influences are everything from Swedish progressive rock bands Kaipa and Karmakanic to legendary American bands like Toto and Boston. Some of Andrée’s and Erik’s friends have even mentioned Dirty Loops when they’ve dropped around Erik’s studio in Stockholm while the album was still in the making. [Who knows, maybe it could have something to do with bass player Linus’ close collaboration with the Dirty Loops members Henrik Linder and Aron Mellergård for their newly released bass and drum transcription books?] ”High on Deception” is a distinctive record filled with playful odd time signatures and interesting harmonies, but it never loses its core of strong melodies and an exceptional groove. Stay tuned for more news soon!

  13. 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!
  14. From Frontiers: Frontiers Music Srl is pleased to announce the signing of a new AOR band from Norway, ZELBO to the label for a multi-album deal. Musically the band plays an excellent and varied AOR style, which draws influences from the giants of the scene and adds a healthy dose of Scandinavian influences (especially DaVinci of course, but also Stage Dolls, Europe, and Treat). ”We are very excited to sign with a great record company like Frontiers Music,” says band mastermind Dag Selboskar. ”We’re really proud to be a part of their AOR family”. Zelbo was put together in 2018 by keyboard player Dag Selboskar (DaVinci, Street Legal) together with guitarist Ken Ingwersen (Wonderworld, Ken Hensley, ex-Street Legal). The two then completed the band’s lineup with young rising vocal star Frode Vassel from Bergen, NO (who recently appeared on the TV show The Voice Norway) and the brilliant Sturla Nøstvik on drums. The band is currently working on the post production of their debut album and the label tentatively plans to release it in the fall/winter of 2021. www.facebook.com/ZELBOtheBAND Teaser: www.facebook.com/ZELBOtheBAND/videos/188285206401368
  15. New album 'Anarchy And Unity' out September 17 through Frontiers. More details soon.
  16. 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
  17. 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!”
  18. From Frontiers: The Treatment will return with a new album, “Waiting For Good Luck” on April 9, 2021! First single and music video coming February 2nd. Stay tuned... Tracklist: 1. Rat Race 2. Take It Or Leave It 3. Lightning In A Bottle 4. Vampress 5. Eyes On You 6. No Way Home 7. Devil In The Detail 8. Tough Kid 9. Hold Fire 10. Barman 11. Let’s Make Money 12. Wrong Way
  19. The singer from Degreed signs a solo deal with Frontiers: Press release: Frontiers Music Srl is excited to announce the signing of vocalist ROBIN RED to a multi-album deal. Robin is a Swedish rock singer known for being one of the founding members of melodic hard rockers degreed. Since then, he has toured all over Europe in support of five well received studio albums from the band. Additionally, Robin also participated in the Swedish version of American Idol in 2008, finishing in the Top 10. In 2020, Robin decided to start a solo career and sent his demos to Frontiers, who were quite excited with what they heard. ”I’ve been thinking about doing a solo album for many years. It’s kind of a dream come true. But I never really felt ready, not until now. I'm gonna go back to the roots and make it a little more organic. I'm very inspired by artists like Jimmy Barnes and Bryan Adams, and the sound will not be far from there, I think. But it will still be me,” says Robin. Robin’s debut album is tentatively scheduled for release in early 2021. facebook
  20. New live album 'Live At Sharpener's House' out December 10th through Frontiers. More info to follow...
  21. 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
  22. New album 'Heroine' out September 10 through Frontiers.
  23. 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".

  24. From Frontiers: Frontiers Music Srl is pleased to announce the signing of Danish vocalist Ronnie Atkins to a solo deal. The acclaimed Pretty Maids and Nordic Union vocalist is currently wrapping up work on a new solo album, ”One Shot,” which will be released in the spring of 2021. ”To be honest, I initially had no intention to do a solo album to begin with, but for various reasons and in particularly my own personal health situation I finally decided to have a crack at it,” says Atkins. ”Around Easter 2020 and only some six weeks after I was told that everything seemingly looked very positive for my health, I was unfortunately diagnosed with stage 4 cancer and told it was incurable, which was devastating news for me. Needless to say, that was a total game changer and I went into kind of a panic situation for a while! But when the dust had settled. I realised there were two ways to approach the situation. I could sit down, accept the facts, and feel pity for myself or I could pull myself up, set some goals, pursue my dreams, and carry on living! And with fantastic back up from my family and true friends, I went for the latter!” continues Atkins. With the global pandemic shutting down touring for the foreseeable future, Atkins knew a tour promoting the latest Pretty Maids album, ”Undress Your Madness” (2019) was not going to be in the cards anytime soon. Suddenly, the timing for working on a new solo album seemed to have presented itself. ”Well, I couldn’t change the way things were by any means. The whole world was on a lockdown and the future prospects of concerts were very uncertain and still is to this day! Basically, that meant that if I was gonna carry out the idea of a solo album, it had to be now since I don’t necessarily have all the time in the world. I had all these ideas recorded on my iPhone that I felt were too good to never see the light of day and I was writing a lot at the time to help ease my frustrations,” tells Atkins. Ronnie’s next step was that he hooked up with good friend and PM bandmate and producer Chris Laney to begin the work of putting these ideas together into songs. Chris is overseeing production, Jacob Hansen will mix, and musicians/singers appearing on the album include, in addition to Laney, Allan Sørensen, Morten Sandager, Pontus Egberg, Pontus Norgren, Kee Marcello, Olliver Hartmann, John Berg, Anders Ringman, Linnea Vikström Egg, and Björn Strid. The album is currently scheduled for release in spring of 2021 with the first single and more album details to be revealed in January 2021. Stay tuned!
  25. 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)
