Press release:

 

Frontiers Music Srl is excited to announce a new band that just joined the label roster: THE DEFIANTS!

 

Behind this new band is a trio of fabulous musicians all with ties to Danger Danger.

 

On vocals and guitar, is none other than Mr. Paul Laine! Best known for being the D2 singer for 12 years, Paul is now coming back to work with his former bandmates Bruno Ravel and Rob Marcello, who are the other two pillars of The DEFIANTS.

 

“Very, very excited about this new project, and to be working again with my ol’ pal Paul Laine, and of course, Rob Marcello!” says Bruno Ravel, who will also produce the debut album. “The writing process has been a lot of fun. We all trust and respect each other’s instincts so there’s little second guessing and that takes a lot of the usual stress out of the equation, so for me, this has been a blast so far. We will be entering the studio in the next few weeks to start recording, with completion set for the end of the year. So…what should you expect,? Well, expect some straight ahead “in your face” melodic hard rock, that’s what!”

 

Paul Laine says: “I’m very happy to once again, create something special with Bruno and Rob. Although it’s a brand new release, I feel It's a great opportunity to say thank you and do something for the fans who have followed us through the years. Bruno and Rob are immense talents. I feel honored to be a part of this and have my voice on this album.” Rob Marcello concludes “Beyond psyched to work with my best friend Bruno and Paul on this project! It’s going to be a great one! Can’t wait for you to hear it!"

The band will be documenting the recording process and uploading studio clips and song samples on their FB page as the album takes shape. Expect the album to hit the stores in late Spring / early Summer 2016.

 

 

 

Edit: Adding these April 4th, 2016 (to help newcomers):

Makes no sense! Just do another DD.

 

DD still have Steve West and Ted Poley so probably this new project don't fit them quite well.

 

Don't get hopes too high as this might go swinging heavy to modern or country, but well something to expect early next year :D

Yeah, as far as I know D2 are done and I got the impression it was mostly because Bruno (and Steve?) couldn't really be bothered with music anymore. So I'm very surprised to see this project, but also very excited.

 

I do wonder why on earth Steve West is not involved, as I assumed there would never be a day that Bruno and Steve did not record together, if they recorded at all.

 

Anyway, without a doubt this is something to look forward to.

Dick for info. Think they would have the common decency to have a song snippet or something to go along with the 2 post Facebook page. Sheesh.

well they did state this -

If by done you mean no new album, maybe that's true, but I just saw a flyer somewhere on the net that they're playing at Vasby Rock Festival with W.A.S.P and H.E.A.T probably around July 2015, and the formation is intact (West, Ravel, Poley, Marcello) so they're still active I guess

Yeah, being active still offers that glimmer of hope that a new recording could still eventuate. I did not realise they were still active at all. Lucky bastards who get to see them....

News from PAUL LAINE on THE DEFIANTS and also DARK HORSE:

Last Day????????Maaaaaaybbbbeeee?????Bruno and I have been(Lets just say 99% Bruno-1 % me)killing ourselves to get The Defiants thing done and finished...We pretty much are now,and thats a good thing..I can safely say,that anybody who loved what we did in the past,will freak out when they hear this record...It's pretty damn cool,and we wrote our asses off..

To all of you out there who still follow me,I have a couple things to say...

1. I am sorry for not being on here,and being able to write you all back..usually I am pretty good at this part of social media? But sometimes when you are "doing your art",as I like to think of it,some things must be sacrificed to get it done...Social media was one of those things..So were emails/phone calls/visiting family/having any sort of normal life...Please give me a pass...Sometimes I have to drop out,in order to be good at what I do..

 

2. DarkHorse!!!! Yes YesYes!!! Still continues to be my number 1 thing,just as DangerDanger continues to be Bruno and Rob's number 1 thing...

DarkHorse Album 2 is just about to be recorded,and Nashville awaits..
DarkHorse will have some cool show announcements soon for 2016 as well...very soon..

Along with all that,I will be going into the studio with John Macarthur Ellis to cut the new Stacey Mckittrick single,and will be singing a duet with her on it...Looking forward to working with both John and Stacey...so...
Let the first half of the marathon that 2016 is going to be,start.

Nashville,L.A.,then Milan Italy,Melborne Australia..All before the end of May..
Anybody want my life??...wait a min...

maybe you do...
Take your vitamins.

Really? Is that true? I wonder in what capacity this is? Purely in terms of touring, or is new material for D2 an option? Is Ted still part of the band?

    • I first heard this a few years ago, and it has probably been discussed on here before but the search function throws up everything when you search for Jani or Serial Killer. I had liked the song The one that got away on Alice Coopers Along came a spider album, and one day a few years ago I found out it was originally an unreleased Jani Lane song. Being a huge Jani fan I have just been wishing that all the unreleased stuff I have heard over the years would get a remaster and a proper release as he was one hell of a song writer and singer. This though sounds fully produced. Also found an old interview from 2010 where Jani discussed working with Alice on his (then) upcoming Welcome 2 my nightmare album, but sadly looking at the writing credits, they went in a different direction as there are no Jani writing credits. I wonder if there are any unreleased Alice Cooper songs from those writing sessions?  
    • Yeah true mine came with the card too - no. 304

    • Popping back in to plug a damn fine album by a damn fine group.  Came out this Friday and I can't stop listening to it. These Swedes have been on an upward trajectory since their debut in 2017. This is already their 4th album. The last one, Rambler, was very good so I thought it would be hard to top, but they have succeeded by a considerable margin.  Black Paisley take their influences from the classic 80s hard/heavy rock genre, with a tinge of modern vibes. Guitarist Franco Santunione joined for the Rambler album and he was a real shot in the arm.  This is riffy, melodic, head bop inducing stuff.  Everything is excellent on this album, but a few songs stick out even more IMO, and they are Set Me Free, In the Night, World's Turning, Silent Asylum and Crazy.  If you haven't checked these fellas out, you really should.  I don't know how to embed Spotify or YT links, so if someone nice could help out, it would be greatly appreciated. 
    • Pretty decent... not mad about it. 
    • Nice. I like it a lot. And yeah, very good quality for a demo. 
    • Didn't know what to make of that one so I actually checked out another song from them-   So they are a rock band... just not really sure what to make of them. Sounds a bit thin, and dare I actually say it, but can something be over-produced? Not sure if that's just me listening on a laptop, though. But I'm moderately intrigued. 
    • Wow, hook line and sinker with the first song alone. Magnificent. Will check out asap.
