Press release:

 

BREAKING NEWS: Frontiers Music Srl is excited to announce the signing of ENUFF Z’NUFF to the label for the release of a brand new studio album to arrive in the fall of 2016!

Wrongly lumped in with the disposable pop-metal bands of the late '80s,Enuff Z'Nuff are instead a truly gifted power pop act. Founded in Chicago in 1984 by Chip Znuff, Enuff Z’Nuff arrived with their self-titled debut in August 1989, scoring a couple of hit singles with "New Thing" and "Fly High Michelle." The follow up was 1991's “Strength” album, where the band had noticeably toned down their image and turned up their creative ambitions to deliver a masterful '90s take on the crunchy power pop sound of Cheap Trick and Badfinger.

As of today, Enuff Z’Nuff is still going strong and continues touring the globe. Singer-songwriter Johnny Monaco now fronts the power-pop trio along with co-founder Chip Z’Nuff and drummer Erik Donner.

Chip Znuff says, “We are very excited with this new deal with Frontiers, thanks to old friend who discovered us, Derek Shulman. The new record is pure ROCK and features a couple rockstar friends, most notably James 'JY' Young (Styx), and the late great Jani Lane (WARRANT) singing on one of his last recording sessions. The band will be touring through 2016, worldwide. A few of the titles on the new Enuff Z'nuff record are: "Good Luv", "Radio", "Nothing", and "The Devil of Shakespeare". Wishing everyone a prosperous 2016 and may the BEST thing that happened to you last year be the WORST thing that happens to you this year!”

Ive long given up on these guys and i held on longer than most..

Yep me too. I do love Chip and Monaco can sing but no Donnie or Derek and no EZN.

 

However I will gladly listen to what comes about and cast my judgements then.

 

I wonder where Derek Frigo is these days?

 

You cant have Enuffznuff without Donnie.

Monaco is a major talent and does a fine job with their back catalogue but I agree, Vie's voice is irreplaceable.

 

Frigo died in 2004. RIP

I never got into these guys. I remember listening to one album -- part of one album -- and wondering what all the fuss was about. Because the people that do like Enuff Z'nuff seem to phuking LOVE Enuff Z'nuff. Am I missing something?

Same for me, but it's been a few years so maybe I'll check out some songs on youtube again

Hmm, not sure about that at all. I always got the impression that, like me, most people were pretty lukewarm towards the band. The first 3 albums are good and then after that you'd be struggling to find an EP/album's worth of good songs.

 

My opinion is they were decent, for those 3 albums, but like most bands from the era, anything after that wasn't worth the effort.

 

Anyway, I agree with the sentiment that without Vie in the band, it is really not the "real" Enuff Z' Nuff by any stretch of the imagination. Also agree with Andrew that this seems like a really bad idea on Frontiers' behalf to sign this shadow of the band. Can't imagine this will appeal to many people at all...

Cheap Trick with worse vocals, worse drums, worse guitars, worse bass, worse production style and worse songs. In a nutshell.

 

Would you say they're not as good a Cheap Trick?
