DangerDanger continues to be Bruno and Rob's number 1 thing...

 

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?

 

 

Sure doesn't seem like a number one thing.

7 years since "Revolve". Maybe they mean the other "number 1".

That's probably the one.

If touring with greatest hits require no further rehearsal and can bang some big bucks, I don't see why they need to bother with new release which only sell couple hundreds disc or less and eventually net them money loss for production and marketing cost.

 

That's the real reason why veterans decide not to pursue new music unless through crowdfunding or major label :D

But what becomes of the passion for your craft? I cannot fathom being a musician and playing the same old shit all the time with no desire to create new music. Surely it just becomes as mundane as any of our shitty 9-5 jobs...

Really? It's not by any means the worst album cover I've seen. And I wouldn't even consider it all that bad.

Song titles look great....album cover looks ludicrous.

Yes, song titles look really good.

Yup. Hoping "Love & Bullets" and "Waiting on a Heartbreak" are as good as their titles would suggest.

From that image it looks like Vince Neil is part of the band.

 

Although I loved Darkhorse, I hope the country image is the only thing country about the release.

Never say never - Bon Jovi, Steven Tyler, Tom Keifer, Paul Laine, and a bunch of others did that :D

Pressrelease from Frontiers Records:

 

The Defiants is a new band put together by Paul Laine, Bruno Ravel and Rob Marcello. Three fabulous musicians, all with ties to the great hard rock band Danger Danger.

Best known for being Danger Danger's frontman for a 12 year stint from 1992-2004, which included 4 studio albums, Paul Laine is now coming back to work with his former bandmates Bruno Ravel and Rob Marcello, who are the other two pillars of THE DEFIANTS.

The guys got back together under suggestion of Frontiers' President, Serafino Perugino, who really wanted to offer the fans a chance to hear some new music from these guys. The resulting album is an extremely exciting affair which is going to please not only D2 fans, but also all the ones who are into the classic sound from the glory days of rock in the '80s and '90s.

Paul Laine says “From the moment Bruno and I started writing together,we knew we had something special. It’s been my experience that when the writing process is effortless, you’ve trapped lightning in a bottle…within the first 2 1/2 months, we had close to 40 ideas up on the board. I think it surprised both of us how intuitive we were of each others ideas. I’m very proud of this record, and it feels good to let loose on an album of complete stadium rockers. Rob Marcello, I consider to be one of the biggest talents in the world of modern guitar players. I love how much he shines on this record, and from track to track, I couldn’t wait to hear what he had to say musically. On a personal note, it feels good to hit another musical and writing milestone with this album. It was very hard to choose the material for this record,and its exciting to know that there are still bullets left in the chamber that nobody has heard yet...”

Bruno Ravel adds “I’m so stoked for you all to hear this record! It was so much fun to create, and that feeling will be very evident once you give it a listen. Paul and Rob poured every bit of themselves into these tracks, and their performances were just ridiculous! Add that to the aggressive killer drum pounding that only my good buddy, Van Romaine could deliver, and you have what equals a bonafide rock ’n’ roll roller coaster! Strap yourselves in folks! And get ready for the ride!“

THE DEFIANTS is a glorious return to the “in your face” melodic hard rock that won millions of fans back in the '80s and '90s and is currently enjoying a well deserved revival in the 21st century.

THE DEFIANTS are set to appear live at the Frontiers Rock Festival in Trezzo (Milano), Italy on April 24, 2016, where the band will perform classic tracks from Paul Laine's solo career, some Danger Danger hits (of course) and songs off The Defiants debut!

Because its the new Frontiers policy?

Right.

 

But they can still post a track on their Facetube.

I bet this is going to be one awesome disc.

 

I don't bet shit anymore. On anyone. But I'm really hoping it is.

By the way, how exactly is the cover a country image.

 

It looks more like a pathetic version of the Good the Bad and the Ugly.

 

Probably the worst album cover since Coup De Grace

    • Yeah... pretty much.  Once ADV got his grubby little mitts on it. 
    • I had this preordered...but according to Amazon its out not until 21st Oct ...I know that wrong...its out tomorrow....hopefully it ticks my boxes after reading what tt42572 wrote.
    • Heard this and have to say this is probably my most disappointing album of the year. Granted, I was jacked up for this one and had high expectations.  I loved Carnival Days, loved their Vibration EP and dug the singles they had come out with (Broken into Pieces, Fake Perfection, Scream and Disconnect from the Matrix).   It almost pains me to say that this album though is just doing very little for me.  First of all, Broken into Pieces and Fake Perfection weren't even included on the album and I feel like that was a mistake.  Scream and Matrix are on it and those 2 are probably my top 2 songs on it. As for the rest, not much overly grabbed me on my first listen.  There are a couple tunes that sound okay and might grow on me some but I found myself mostly just scratching my head and skipping through tunes. Overall just not finding it nearly as catchy as most of their recent stuff. I'll give it a couple more tries to see if it's maybe a grower but initial impression isn't great.  
    • Is too light=cheesy is is it just not hard enough/enough guitars etc? Best regards, Thomas
    • How did I not think of this one?! Brilliant album and the project just tanked afterwards...
    • I don't. Hate it with a passion. Even that is so 1986. Retire Tesla please. You are an embarrassment now.
    • Tracklist: 1. Super Fine Sugar  2:48 2. Drive It Like I Stole It (featuring Berton Averre of The Knack)  4:25 3. Cherry Cola (featuring Jon Auer of The Posies)  3:50 4.

Rattle The Cage  4:42 Band members: David Shaw - lead vocals, bass George Giannoulis - lead guitar, vocals Alex Rude - guitar, vocals Erik Fehrenbach - drums, vocals Produced by Streetlight Circus Recorded at Snake Mountain Studios - Monroe, New York Mixed and Mastered by Bob St. John for PDQ Productions Bio: Born in New York City, raised on rock ‘n’ roll, Streetlight Circus has become a fist-raising juggernaut.  With two independently-released full-length albums and one EP, consistent touring in the United States and overseas, invites to major American rock festivals, and bills shared with countless venerated artists, Streetlight Circus has become a name synonymous with the new wave of hard rock. 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
