As some of you know, I recently discovered The Donnas. I've been playing their SPEND THE NIGHT album non-stop for about two weeks now. They're cute as hell and they ROCK!

 

Some video evidence...

 

"Take It Off"

"Too Bad About Your Girl" (those with sharp eyes may recognize P.J. Soles in a quick cameo as her character "Riff Randell" from "Rock N Roll High School" in this one)

"Strutter" (from the "Detroit Rock City" soundtrack)

I wonder none mentioned Allison yet, she's my favourite! :bowdown: Makes me think: I want a goddamn backstage-pass at their show. It's much easier for ladys being groupies than for us - where's the gender equality?

 

Oh yeah music...I LIKE it! Their new one is hair-metal par excellence, one of my faves from 2007! Spend the Night is great as well!

Here's the Donnas' newest vid for the tune "Don't Wait Up For Me" from their new album "BITCHIN"... sounds like they're leaving the 70s hard rock sound behind a little bit on this one in favor of some 80s Joan Jett vibe (with a pinch of hair metal for good measure)... good stuff, either way. I think I will be picking this CD up soon! :metal:

  • 1 year later...

been watching some vids on youtube lately (and looking through LOTS of photos)

 

i gotta say that Take It Off actually isnt too bad! i learnt to play it today cause i had 5 mins to spare and figured playing along to the video on youtube would give me a reason to look at Brett :wub:

 

I'm practically in love with her and her suggestive lyrics :P

    • That April Rain song sounds pretty good to me !
    • That Sammy is a top 5 release of 2022 for me. The Disturbed is also good. My daughter is getting Taylor Swift for Xmas
    • comparing this to Defiants is ridiculous- Defiants is just D2 under a different name  And it will probably be best album of 2023 
    • beautiful, all in their prime 
    • Pretty over this stupid and weak supergroup crap from Frontiers now. Feeling cynical that they are just trying to squeeze every last $ from the fanbase. Fan abuse.
    • The fundamental difference is that the mainstream media is now portraying the Chinese COVID protestors as glorious freedom fighters standing up for their inalienable human rights, where protesters in the U.S. and Canada were portrayed as terrorists, insurrectionists, and right-wing nazis by the very same mainstream media. Fuckers. I guess the current administration(s) have exhausted the money pit being diverted to Ukraine with respect to public approval, so now time to ratchet up somewhere else to send gobs of taxpayer money so that billions can be funneled back to the DNC via crypto...
    • Agree! There was a time back 5 or 6 years ago when I'd get into these project type things....Defiants, Nordic Union, etc.  And I'm sure I'll still enjoy new Defiants music when it drops. But I'm definitely saturated on these things and I'm basically to the point where I'm paying very little attention to them.  I'd rather invest my time into "real" bands that I might actually get the chance to see live someday. Like you say, I'll still sometimes check out these things and maybe I toss a song into my playlist here or there.  But odds I actually purchase an album from one of these new projects is very low.  
    • This seems like something that would be massively exciting maybe five or six years ago but now, not so much. I'm just so bored with the Frontiers factory churning out studio project after studio project with the same songwriters, the same production, and random hodgepodges of vocalists...year after year after year. I'm just not interested in this stuff anymore, I'll listen but the odds that I'll come back to it (let alone buy the album) are low. Those songs are mediocre. They're not ADV's worst but they are not his best either. IMO Robbie steals the show in both of them. Why is ADV still doing backing vocals for a project created specifically for THREE vocalists?  P.S. that band name SUCKS lol
    • New single 'April Rain' from the album 'Naked Soul'. And ADV ruining everything... From Frontiers: Frontiers Music Srl is pleased to announce T3nors, a very special new AOR project. Two of America’s greatest AOR singers, Robbie LaBlanc and Toby Hitchock join forces with one of Sweden’s finest AOR singers, Kent Hilli to form the vocali trio of T3nors. These absolutely outstanding vocalists have come together on one glorious melodic rock album, "Naked Soul", which will be released on February 10, 2023.  The story behind this record actually dates back quite a few years as Frontiers has been wanting to do a “three tenors” type of record for quite some time. Given the extremely high level of AOR vocal talent that the label has worked with in the past and continues to work with today, the idea never really lost steam. The issue was always finding the right pairing of three singers and the timing for the individual singers to have holes in their schedule to record. With the onset of the global pandemic in 2020, everyone's availability, for better or for worse, became more flexible and the idea started to become reality.  Pairing Robbie, Toby, and Kent together seemed an ideal team up and all three were enthusiastic about the idea when approached to participate. The rest, as they say, is history. Kent Hilli is the newest of the three singers on the scene, but has quickly made an impact with the albums he has released with his main band Perfect Plan, as well as being the new frontman for GIANT, solo material, and guest appearances with Restless Spirits, the melodic rock project from Lords Of Black guitarist Tony Hernando.  Toby Hitchcock is an American singer known for his solo albums as well as his work with the esteemed melodic rock genius Jim Peterik in Pride Of Lions. Robbie LaBlanc is an American singer, guitarist, and songwriter known for his work with Blanc Faces, Find Me, a project with The Murder Of My Sweet drummer/producer Daniel Flores, East Temple Avenue, and more.  If you are a lover of all things AOR, then T3nors' debut album, "Naked Soul" is a can't miss release!   Tracklisting:1.
