Yeah, I dig that. Good vocalist, very cool vibe. Assuming it'd be one of the more straight forward songs on the album, I like it. Very cool groove... Reminds me a bit of Dream Police and Gotthard and dare I say a faint hint of XYZ?

From melodicrock.com:

 

There’s nothing better than supporting new band – even if the band in question has been around for 25 years. Is this the longest time period between forming and a debut album being released?
 
For those familiar with these rockers from Melbourne, Australia, the wait has been worth it!
 
MelodicRock Records is really excited to have SERPENTINE SKY join the label roster, with their self-titled debut album due for release October 30.
 
Owner of MRR, Andrew McNeice recalls owning a relic of the band’s early days. “When Zakk sent me their album to check out, I only needed seconds to realize the anthemic lead track Whole Lotta Love has been a part of my collection in the form of a 2 track promo-cassette from the early 90s. I had always loved that song and wanted to hear more. Better late than never! This is a classic melodic rock album with a strong dose of Aussie attitude and a very slick, energetic production.”
 
“Serpentine Sky” will be released in a 10 track regular edition as well as a limited Special Edition which will contain several bonus tracks which will be announced soon.
 
Right now I can’t wait to present one of the great tracks off this album. But which one?
How about something different? How about the closing track?
That’s right – this album is so consistently good, we can go right to the end to present a highlight from the set. Don’t you love albums that close out with that absolute killer song that once finished makes you just want to hit play and start over again?
 
With that in mind, please check out SERPENTINE SKY and “Midnight”:
 
 
 
 
 
 
Originally founded in 1989 by Patrick Creamer, Zakk Zedras, Rexx Fernandez, Clinton Roche and Craig Whitelock; the then called Serpentine made an immediate impact on audiences with their energetic live show combining shredding guitars, three part harmonies, huge melodic choruses and the best rhythm section around.
 
In the early nineties, the band was tipped as “the next big thing” by Aus music legend Ian ‘Molly’ Meldrum and showered with major record label deals.
 
As fate would have it, everything came to an abrupt end in 1991. Drummer Craig Whitelock suffered a serious motorbike accident resulting in him being unable to perform for the best part of twelve months. The band tried to carry on with another drummer, but relationships became strained and the magic was lost.
 
Reuniting after 25 years in 2014, the band played the tribute show for dearly departed friend and former drummer of White Widdow, George Kristy.
 
Serpentine members rekindled their friendship. A decision was made to re-form the band and record an album of their best original tracks. The band recorded their full-length debut album with producer / engineer Ricki Rae.
 
The band changed their name to Serpentine Sky in 2015.

wow, I'm impressed with the singer, sounds almost identical to Eric Martin which is among my fave singers.

 

Good sign and love that 'Groovy Feelin' track. 'Midnight' is awesome too.

If the rest are as strong as these two, well I'm quite convinced this one might be MelodicRock records best signing ever :D

That is quite solid but after a while, it started losing the magic, I still rated it around 85% or less, are you still liking it at 90% ?

Degreed was the best signing so far - gave them the start they needed to go on and record 2 of the best albums in the genre in the last 5 years

 

The debit aint too shabby either ;-)

yep, Andrew believed in them, and thank God. I love the last 2 albums, and the debut is very solid indeed.

 

Great live band as well.

 

Maybe he'll get those guys across for the Aussie fest ???!!!

That'd be cool. Would love to see them. I agree, they have so far gotten (is it seriously a word? Just looks so wrong) better with each album.

Love the lads in Degreed...happy to help them get started. All three albums are essential!

 

All I Know are still going...expect something next year.

 

Nice, let's hope they up their game and produce a real killer.

Oh yeah, that's great new. I'd have thought for sure they were no longer together. Looking forward to that one. They have a great ear for a great hook.

The band's new album, Super Fine Sugar, represents a huge leap forward for the hard-hitting quartet. Streetlight Circus showcases the urgent songwriting and soaring vocals of David Shaw, the fiery and passionate guitar work of George Giannoulis, the thunderous drumming of Erik Fehrenbach, and the smooth rhythm guitar work of Alex Rude. What’s more, Streetlight Circus has captured the attention of industry stalwarts who have eagerly participated in the creation of the new album. The songs were mixed and mastered by Grammy-winning producer and engineer Bob St. John. Guest appearances are made by Berton Averre (The Knack), Tony Harnell (TNT), Jon Auer and Ken Stringfellow (The Posies), Brian Forsythe (Kix), and Jesper and Jacob Binzer (D-A-D). Streetlight Circus has been invited to rock thousands at festivals such as Rock Fest (Wisconsin), Rocklahoma (Oklahoma), Rock N’ Derby (New York), Wolf Fest (Colorado), and the M3 Rock Festival (Maryland) among many others. The band has managed to comfortably fit on bills featuring bands as heavy as Avatar, Anthrax, and Megadeth and as accessible as The Doobie Brothers, Buckcherry, and Night Ranger. In 2018, Streetlight Circus embarked on a successful headlining tour of the United Kingdom taking them from Wales to Scotland and many British points in between. Supercharged and ready to roll with Super Fine Sugar, Streetlight Circus is prepared to rock stages around the globe. Don’t miss your chance to rock under the band’s big top. It’s a show you won’t want to miss. Watch the video for "Dirty Earth" featuring Tony Harnell at the link below  https://youtu.be/08_IuFTqwTM  
    • warrant?? CP and DED destroy the debut imo. 🤷
    • Eric Clapton-Chronicles Best Of John Fogerty-Centerfield Genesis-...And Then There Were Three... Jimi Hendrix-Electric Ladyland Billy Joel-The Stranger L.A. Guns-S/T Bruno Mars-Unorthodox Jukebox Motley Crue-The Dirt Soundtrack Simple Minds-Glittering Prize Patty Smyth-S/T U2-The Joshua Tree    
    • Such was commonplace around here years ago. 
    • That's an oxymoron-even KarpetRyd knows that !  
    • Checked this out....not too bad but not sure how memorable it'll be. There's a few tunes I thought sounded pretty good after my first listen and do think Ronnie sounds excellent on the album  Songs like Scream and Shot in the Dark both stood out to me a bit.  I thought Last Man Alive sounded decent too. Much of the rest kind of feels like it falls in line with the first 2 singles that were released.  It's kind of heavy which is cool but just not coming off as being that catchy or memorable initially which was sort of my same problem with the last album.   We'll see what happens with more listens.  Here's a link to the whole album:  
    • WTF is this, two dudes having an intelligent conversation about a band without relying on easy absolutes. I'm impressed.
    • Their Rock 'n' Roll Glitter Suit album is a good one.
