I really like Heartbreak Station and Still Climbing as well.

As long as it is quality and not something put out just to make money and below average tunes...then I sure hope the do.

Why don't they release anything? Because every time they go out on tour, Keifer blows his voice out, which necessitates a lengthy rehab/recovery period. Then when he feels better, they go "OK, we're going back out on the road to get back in playing shape," and boom, he blows his voice out again. It's an endless vicious circle.

I think its more to do with the Portrait debacle leaving them less than interested in recording another album.

On top of that, all the members have outside projects with the exception of Keifer who has been promising a solo album for years, but as said above his voice has always put a stop to that every time it blows.

If they can't/won't do another studio release, at least they could throw us a bone and put out a vaults/rarities thing ... Lord knows they have a bunch of demos/unreleased stuff in the can from past sessions that's been making the bootleg rounds for years. Polish up some of that sh*t with some studio magic and boom, fans have some new stuff to listen to, and it's something besides another frickin' live album, that way everybody's happy.

Omg dude...I bet I have 75 demos from them and thats just from the Night Songs era. They could easily do a box set with some killer stuff!

Same here, but I'd still love more, as long as the quality isn't sacrificed.

I've been hoping for years they'd do another one and I'm not sure what happened with Kalodner and Portrait and why none of those tunes have seen the light of day. I read a interview recently with Keifer claiming the solo album that's been like 10 years in the making will be out late this year but I think I've heard that before. He's a perfectionist to say the least but it's starting to turn into Chinese Democracy. The band needs to just sign with Frontiers and make new music. Tom is such a great songwriter there is no doubt in my mind that could make a solid follow up to Still Climbing.

According to what I have read, they cant sign with any labels to release a new studio album because of the legal problems with Sony.

Until the case is settled, they cannot record as a band.

Sony are basically being cunts though as they have no intention of releasing the album they recorded while signed to Portrait, but point blank refuse to let the band have the songs back.

 

Its a perfect example of why so many bands end up re-recording their classic albums to make some money off their back catalogue which they would otherwise get no revenue from, while the old record label continues to.

Sadly, in Cinderella's case, they cant even do that as they cannot record anything.

I get the contractual aspect and the "Cinderella" brand, but why not release/record something ala Wayne-Metal Church. You know pick a new band name like, I don't know, The Keifer Quartet and call the album Cinderella or Cinderella Songs or???

 

Just a thought.

As I said in a previous post, I think they are too busy doing outside projects and really have lost interest in recording as a unit due to the legal shit.

I get the feeling that while they are happy to tour, they really dont see Cinderella as a recording unit anymore.

I've heard of similar cases (e.g. I read that there is an album of Death material somewhere that Churck Schuldiner's family want to release but can't) and this is feckin' ridiculous. It serves no one.

 

Has anyone heard any of the songs (e.g. live or demo versions)? Do we know what they are like?

 

All their albums are good, but for me 'Long Cold Winter' is an absolute classic, one of my all-time favourite albums. Be great to see them recapturing some of that form.

    • I think I posted these guys before. It's not ground breaking, but they have an album out and it's pretty cool. Some really cool musical passages on it.   Sever     -    This Should Have Been a Better Place 1    .    '91 2    .    Red Room 3    .    Animal 4    .    Cold World 5    .    Empty Promises (feat. Christoph Wieczorek of Annisokay) 6    .    Closer 7    .    The Disease 8    .    My Dream, My Agony 9    .    Noise in the Trees 10    .    Do You Remember Me?
    • These guys are one of those mystery bands to me. I think they're fine, just can't figure out why people fall over themselves for them as I think they're average to below average in the overall scheme of things. BUT, that is why I am a strong advocate for to eaching their owning. I'm glad people dig, I just don't really understand why. Anyway, new album is basically what these guys do. Solid, eclectic and half decent... but not great. I did think 'Beat of Your Heart' was a nice ballad. Drum sound interesting too. Took me genuinely 6-7 songs to figure out what I thought of it - if I liked it or not. I think I settled on the fact it's cool. I think. Anyway, I assume fans will adore this for whatever reasons they loved the other ones. Me, I think it's adequate, again. 
    • I'm not in the camp enough to say this is utter shit because honestly, it's not. It is capable melodic hard rock and if I put myself in the honest box, if nothing else was considered and this came along in a year like 1996 or something, it'd be a well appreciated album. BUT, all things considered, I agree that it's a pass. It's all capable, but it's very bland and it's just impossible to listen to this project without wondering why it's still called Sunstorm without JLT. It doesn't make sense.  Anyway, I thought 'Hold The Night' was a passable keeper but the rest is predictable, uninspired and bored. 
    • lol, I wonder who he thinks that is going to appeal to? 
    • I'd be amazed if there's any Tesla fans anywhere that don't like 'Bust a nut.' Is this really considered one of their weaker albums? 
    • Ok. I can understand your thinking regarding one`s favorite bands. In my case it was  Bon Jovi. First album I ever bought was Slippery, liked NEw Jersey even better. Saw them live few times, but after 1995 only some good songs on each album but still bought albums,  since Richie left I cant stand their latest albums or even live. So from that scenario I see that I am not just following my favorite bands regardles what they put out.     But in Tesla case I do stlll enjoy their releases, even those post 2010. A admit that Shock had some filler but also some of their best songs post 2000 like The Mission.   I do miss the heavier  element that Tommy brought. songs like  Dont de-rock me, Action talks.
    • Blondie on the right of the second shot is PERFECTION!
