Does this mean they're done with gathering more kings?

Funny you should mention that:

"It is with great pleasure that we can announce..."

 

;)

 

Seriously though, I dig the song.

Which at this rate should be April of 2023... seriously, look at the timeline from the beginning of this thread.

I'm officially disinterested. Too much bullshit, not enough music. Just go away now.

For those of you who haven't given up all hope on this, a fourth single/video "Love Will Stay Alive" should be out during November with the album now scheduled for release in January 2019.

Past the point of caring. All hype, no delivery. Wake me when the album actually shows up. At this rate, who's to say there might not be another delay or seven?

Harsh.

In fairness to the band the announcements of members ended a while ago and they have released 3 to 4 singles like most other bands these days.

Logistically this was probably quite a difficult album to put together given all the personnel involved.

2 or of 3 of the songs so far and been really good.....the Strid sung song was a killer imo and right up there with any NFO song. I'm hoping for at least another song or 2 featuring him on vocals. 

:)

'First Mission' out January 2019.

Maybe.


The Album was produced, mixed, and mastered by Thomas "Plec" Johansson (Soilwork, The Night Flight Orchestra, Nocturnal Rites, Dynazty) at The Panic Room in Skövde, Sweden.

All songs written by hugely talented Victor Olsson except "The Runaway", which was written by Maurice Gibb & Robin Gibb from Bee Gees. The song is a cover of Carolas hit single from 1986. So that's our tribute to the best swedish female singer of all time!
The amazing cover artwork was created by the German artist Markus Vesper Art.

An official video for our next single "Love Will Stay Alive" to be released next week. More details and pre-order info coming soon, stay tuned!

The album is featuring following artists:

*Rick Altzi - Vocals (Masterplan, Herman Frank, At Vance)
*Björn Strid - Vocals (Soilwork, The Night Flight Orchestra)
*Apollo Papathanasio - Vocals (Spiritual Beggars, Firewind)
*Tobias Jansson - Vocals (Saffire)

    • What the hell?
      Wonder which band member convinced his daughter to dance in the clip?
      Kinda creepy video.
      Weird choice for a bunch of 50 year olds...
    • In theory it is D2. It is the Revolve line up with the vocalists swapped. Makes you kinda think that the only reason that was the last D2 album and no follow up is due to Poley. I remember Ravel saying there would be no more D2 as the recording process of Revolve was such hard work, and seeing as all three other members are recording together here, it kinda starts to look like the issue is with the vocalist.
    • From sleazeroxx.com: Playhouse to release new album ‘The Rock N’ Roll Circus’ on November 10th Canadian hard rockers, Playhouse, will be releasing their first new album in more than 25 years with the release of The Rock N’ Roll Circus on November 10, 2018. The group will be having a CD launch party at the Piranha Bar in Montreal, Quebec, Canada on November 10, 2018. Playhouse‘s “Story” on their Facebook page states (with slight edits): “Formed during the height of the 80’s hard rock invasion, five high school friends wanted to play loud! The year was 1987 and they had one goal, to be the biggest rock band to ever come out of Canada. Playhouse released two E.P..’s; 1989’s Little Monster and the follow up; Tongue, Tied & Twisted in 1990. With a reputation for high energy shows and big chorus anthems. they quickly started filling every club they played. Now armed with a dedicated fan base solidly behind them, local promoters came calling. Soon, Playhouse found themselves opening for the likes of Extreme, Killer Dwarfs,Brighton Rock, Harem Scarem and many more. Then after 8 years together in the Rock n Roll Circus, the band called it quits…and now, almost 25 years later, THEY ARE BACK! In the fall of 2016, the band reunited and entered the studio for the first time together in over 20 years with veteran recording producer and lead guitarist for Slaves on Dope, Kevin Jardine to record three new songs. The first video “On Fire” was released in September 2016 with a follow up video released a few months later for “Stand Up And Fight.” In November 2017, Playhouse returned to the stage after 25 year with their sold out comeback show in Montreal, Canada.   Check out this earlier thread on these guys: https://heavyharmonies.ipbhost.com/topic/35094-playhouse/        
    • no......it.......doesn't 
    • Drinking my Beaujolais nouveau (Vive La France for your beautiful traditions!!!!!) while spinning them back to back on vinyl (Jaysus, sound is incredible on both vinyls!!!!) and still GOC wipes the floor with Tunguska(what a waste of a great title, btw!). 
    • wow. I'll leave that comment there. in terms of this album - it's a boring one paced generic album. Martennson needs to regather himself for the Eclipse album next year and produce something truly exciting
