Great first single featuring Jeff Scott Soto.

 

 

From highwayrocks.com:

 

HighWay...four guys who sold their souls to Rock'n'Roll to make you sing, dance and headbang!

The band comes from Montpellier (south of France), and was created in 2000 by brothers Ben and Romain Chambert (guitar and drums).

Taking from their influences of AC/DC, KISS, Whitesnake, Guns N' Roses and Aerosmith, the band delivers up the goods on four albums.

"Have a Beer!", their first E.P was released in 2002 after winning a national "Rock contest". A young, rough and wild first shot!"Goodbye Money", released in 2005, allowed "HighWay" the worldwide distribution of their two CDs by French label "Brennus Music Records".

"United States Of Rock 'N' Roll" was unleashed in 2011 with a new bass player, Sam Marshal, a real incarnation of Rock 'N' Roll.

This record was due to a very hard and long work, in wich ervey member of the band had put all of his energy, faith and passion.

It is also their first step to conquer the USA thanks to their new deal with Californian label "Demon Doll Records".

With now more than 300 gigs under their belt and having shared main European stages with bands like Michael Schenker Group, Jeff Scott Soto, Crucified Barbara, Nashville Pussy or Gotthard, France's Hard Rocking stars on the rise are highly motivated to make 2017 the year they welcome everyone to their United States Of Rock 'N' Roll!

Their fourth album, simply called "IV", will be released on Sept. 29th 2017 and it', by far, the most powerful and devastating of the crew!

The band worked with famous French sound-engineer Brett Caldas-Lima (known for his work for Ayeron, Devin Townsend, Megadeth...) to create a wall of sound and a real sonor identity. It's heavy, it's groovy, it's sexy and melodic...everything Rock Music is about!

Band:

Benjamin Folch (vocals)
Ben Chambert (guitars)
Romain Chambert (drums)
Sam Marshal (bass guitar)

    • From Escape Music: KEYS has just completed their second album, “The Grand Seduction”.   This all-keyboard band is the brainchild of singer Jake E (Cyhra, Amaranthe and others) and keyboardist Mark Mangold (Touch, Drive, She Said, Michael Bolton, Cher, Paul Rogers and others) with Emanuel Bagge (Sweden’s Got Talent Finalist) on additional vocals and keys, Irwan Fabrien (noted keyboard guitar sound designer) with help of drum gurus Alex Landenburg (Kamelot, Cyhra and others).   Featuring live performances with three keyboardists and a huge battery of keyboards, this ambitious band brings keyboard and instrumental prowess to new heights while playing songs that run the gamut from scathing progressive melodic forays to catchy and melodic rock anthems …and Jake’s award-winning voice (Burrn Vocalist of the year 2020).   Previous KEYS album also featured guest keyboard additions by Charlie Calv of Angel and others.   Though songs are first and foremost, this band shows the versatility of keyboards in this day and age.  These artfully crafted songs are ripe with scathing synth, organ and “guitar” pyrotechnics, dazzling time signatures and drumming, bombastic choruses and “guitar” riffs (played on keyboards with the now available plug in’s that perfectly emulate guitars).  As Mark and Jake are first and foremost award winning songwriters, they never lose sight of the composition and melodies, though couched in the very signature and hard to pigeon hole sound (isn’t that the whole point?) of this band and Jake's 4 octave vocal range.   Release Date: 19th July 2024 CD Catalogue No: ESM389   CD Track List: 1. THE GRAND SEDUCTION 9:02 2. ALL I NEED  6:49 3. SHINING SAILS  5:51 4. SWITCHBLADE  6:02 5. VORTEX   4:06 6. SKIN AND BONES  6:42 7. TURN TO DUST    4:42 8. CRAZY TOWN   7:43 9. THOUGHT WE HAD FOREVER  6:04 10. THE WORLD IS OURS (Curse the Lies)   4:02   Vinyl Track List: Side A 1. THE GRAND SEDUCTION 6:47 2. ALL I NEED 6:49 3. SHINING SAILS 5:51 4. VORTEX 4:06   Side B 1. SWITCHBLADE 6:02 2. SKIN AND BONES 6:42 3. TURN TO DUST 4:42 4. CRAZY TOWN 7:43   PRODUCED BY MARK MANGOLD AND JAKE E MIXED BY MARK MANGOLD MASTERED BY MAOR APPELBAUM  
    • Lyric video for the new song:    
    • No replies in this thread, really? These guys deserves your recognition, absolutely quality stuff!    
    • Listening to this in a shopping centre with the phone to my ear and it sounds ok. But overall underwhelmed. Bed City were awesome and his vocal we top notch. But I like to think I can disregard that and hear it for what it is. I think it's the Christian stuff that is holding me back. And I dealt with Stryper stuff no problems so I'm trying to figure out why this isn't sitting well I guess times have changed and styper always came off as a bit gimmicky or shticky and kind of fun. It's also 30 years later and I really don't care Bout the Christian messages. They are boring now. Even Stryper aren't as obvious in their lyrics these days. Or maybe it's all just a reminder of the shit Josh did that landed him in jail? Silly to constantly remind people of that. Would prefer just some fun rock music I think.  
    • Nate seems like a legit nice guy too… From his FB page: I just want to thank everyone for such a positive response on the latest announcement! It means the world❤️ I will do my absolute best to honor Cj’s legacy and keep his name alive each show. Hope to see you all soon Best Regards  Nate Peck   And from earlier this year, this lovely pic of him and CJ
