From Frontiers Records FB:

 

We are pleased to announce the release of the debut album from Bailey entitled LONG WAY DOWN on December 5th in Europe and December 9th in North America.

BAILEY is the new solo project masterminded by Three Lions frontman Nigel Bailey. Although a relatively new name on the scene, Nigel has a vast experience as both a songwriter and performer. His deal with Frontiers served to bring to light his shining talent both as a powerful vocalist and also as a songwriter. Brand new compositions along with some material written over the years have been combined to complete an exciting solo debut. “I wrote the bulk of the album songs between 2011 and mid 2012” says Nigel. “The plan was to write songs with no particular influences in mind. I have always loved rock music and wrote songs as they came to me. I didn’t have a particular style in mind which is reflected in the various styles on the record.”

With some similarities to THREE LIONS in terms of influences, BAILEY is slightly heavier and more varied in its approach whilst still maintaining the edge and the trademark melodies of Classic British Hard Rock tradition. “If pushed, I would say that In The Name Of The King, Long Way Down and Stay are my personal favourites and show the variety in my writing and vocal style” tells Nigel. This record will be a surprise for many and an absolute must for all British Melodic Hard Rock fans!

BAILEY will also have a debut live show on December 4th at The Coniston live music venue in Bradford, UK. Admission is FREE. Nigel will be performing songs from the album as well as some surprise tunes with his bandmates and special guests!

Yeah good stuff, one to look forward to. I liked Three Lions though it was a little samey at times. I really like the vocals here and musically sounds great too.

Yeah, one definitely worth keeping an eye and ear on. Love his vocals on the Three Lions album, which overall was a really strong release, so hopefully this will be in the same ball park

I really like the Three Lions CD so I guess this will be a good one too. I'm also hoping for a follow up Three Lions album.

Sounds better than 3 Loins.

I agree - it sounds much better. I only like a few of the tunes on the 3 Lions disc and I really think this already sounds pretty damn good.

Heard this today. Very, very ordinary in places, with some really banal song writing, but there are a few very simple decent melodic rockers. More spins to come, but it's no world beater; that's for sure.

Damn.... I thought it had a lot of promise but it's just good. Nothing great or memorable.

 

Haven't put a number on it yet but I'm thinking another in the 75% to 80% range again.

Haha. Wow, I was pretty kind calling it a "cool" disc in the other thread, but there's no way this will crack the 70% mark for me, imo. But we'll wait and see before you quote me on that. ;)

    • 14th September Bad Reputation release... Already storming up the U.S. Billboard singles chart — currently at No. 8 with a bullet - MORE THAN WORDS CAN SAY was written by vocalist FREDDY CURCI and guitarist STEVE DeMARCHI (both formerly of Canadian band ‘Sheriff') who also produced the track with the assistance of Rick Neigher (Vixen, Tim Karr) Available on 7", 12" cassette and CD single, all formats feature SAY WHAT I WANT TO SAY which, like MORE THAN WORDS CAN SAY, is taken from the band's eponymous debut album due to be released on November 26th. The 12 includes the track WHO DO YOU THINK YOU ARE? with the CD single additionally featuring CALL ME — these two cuts will not be available on the forthcoming album. (Nota Bene from Bad Reputation: Now they are !)   CURCI and DeMARCHI have already enjoyed their share of the spotlight as former members of 'Sheriff' who achieved a good deal of success in the early 80 s. After Sheriff' disbanded the two went their separate ways for a while before eventually meeting up again and buying a 16-track studio, which they duly installed in DeMARCHI’s basement, They then began working on some music while holding on to a succession of day jobs. In the midst of putting a demo tape together, they were suddenly catapulted back into the public eye via the success of an old 'Sheriff' tune, 'When I’m With You which rocketed up to the No. 1 spot on the Billboard chart, eventually selling over 500, 000 copies. "We couldn't believe it,” says DeMARCHI. "Here we were, with a number one song, but no tour, no video, and not even a band! " ' Although the idea of ALIAS had already been discussed, the project shifted up a gear with the success of 'When I 'm With You' , CURCI and DeMARCHI had been planning to record an album together after the demise of 'Sheriff' , but both realised they would much rather be in a 'band' situation.While recording in Los Angeles, they crossed paths with drummer MICHAEL DEROSIER who had been in the original line-up of 'Heart' and who proved to be attracted to the idea of being in a band again. DEROSIER then brought in STEVE FOSSEN on bass and guitarist ROGER FISHER, who were also originally founder members of 'Heart'. Thus united, the members of ALIAS are looking forward to the release of both the debut single and the album. The band have recently completed a successful tour of Canada and are currently supporting 'REO Speedwagon ' on their U.S. tour. Additionally, the band is plotting an international concert tour which will hopefully include dates in the U.K.Says DeMARCHI, "We 've been dying to play live again. The feeling of being out on the road, no matter how small the stage, is the best in the world, There's nothing like being in front of a drummer and feeling that bass drum in your stomach. It's f *** ing great! " Say What I Wanna Say Haunted Heart Waiting For Love The Power Heroes What To Do After All The Love Is Gone More Than Words Can Say One More Chance True Emotion Standing In The Darkness       Bonus Tracks Who Do you Think You Are? Call Me Into The Fire When I’m With You (Acoustic version)      
    • Great stuff. Rest of the album:                    
    • New single & video "Going Your Way" out on September 9!   𝗣𝗿𝗲-𝘀𝗮𝘃𝗲 it now https://snd.click/ntmc
    • New lyric video for 'Hold The Night'.    
    • Smoking sounds just like Uh! All Night from Kiss in the chorus. 
    • The Chez Kane tracks do absolutely nothing for me.
    • I really don't like the production and the vibe of the album sadly. Really liked their previous work.
    • Cancelled my Amazon order as they said it was delayed until 21st Oct? Ordered on Discogs direct from the record company Rankakustannus & its been sent n all
