The News Today

After a 35-year career...with a few scattered breaks and temporary line-up changes in that time, it is with a heavy heart that the remaining original members of Norwegian rockers TNT have made the decision to move on in separate musical directions. The bands management team expressed how extremely difficult this decision was for the band... “There is no easy way to break up a family”

Being together for so long...even though separated by an ocean, they became brothers. Ronni, Tony and Diesel wish nothing but the best for each other and will always be there for each other...although not musically.

TNT will continue with a new vocalist and new release through Frontiers Records to be announced very soon. The band will then commence international touring in early 2018 in support of the new release.

Tony will immediately start work on a new Starbreaker album, its third, also through Frontiers Records. A solo release is also in the works. Tony will start touring worldwide early in the new year, with Starbreaker shows planned after a solo tour.

You will all be hearing great music from them again very soon!!

Takk og god natt!!
Thank you and good night!! 
Anata to yoi yoru o origato!!

Utter fucking bullshit. Just say it..... WE FUCKING HATE EACH OTHER. Stop bullshitting everyone with the typical "musical differences" excuse. This was supposed to be "their best release". Wasn't this already a finished album? Now they are ditching Tony's vocals?

Did I even know Harnell was back with TNT? I don't even know. Annoying it didn't work out. But if there is a full album recorded, with Harnell on vocals, and it doesn't get released I will be very, very irritated.

TNT announce new lead vocalist Baol Bardot Bulsara

TNT-photo-2-e1511646857109.jpgNorwegian heavy metal rockers TNT have announced their new and fourth lead vocalist will be Spain based singer Baol Bardot Bulsara.

TNT‘s previous lead vocalists as per Wikipedia consist of Dag Ingebrigtsen (1982–1984, 2008, 2012), Tony Harnell (1984–1992, 1996–2006, 2012, 2013–2015, 2016-2017) and Tony Mills (2006-2013).

Bulsara is replacing Harnell who left TNT for the third time back in October 2017.

The following message was posted in part on TNT‘s Facebook page yesterday:

“This will be a new chapter for TNT and we wish Baol Bardot Bulsarawelcome as our new singer. A big thank you to all the people that welcomed him in Oslo Spektrum on Wednesday and for supporting us. We look forward to a new year with gigs and a new album coming up soon!”

Balsara‘s “Biography” on his Facebook page states in part (with Google translation from Spanish to English and slight edits):

“The idea of forming a rock band was always present, but never materialized; in those times bassists and drummers were scarce and we always lacked one of the two (or both). So I used to go in and out of bands already made, for not being still. One day (although it was night, and in a heavy gambling den, to make matters worse) I read on a wall that singers were sought for the choral ensemble of Jesus Christ Superstar, and, without having heard a musical in my life, I went to the casting. And they go and catch me. And not only that, but they make me cover all the papers that occur to them (except María Magdalena, I still have not understood why …). The fact is that I fell in love with that work, and it was around this time, Around the age of 20, when without even thinking about it, I began to take the performing arts seriously….

Since then, from different formations and tours, the tribute band Led Zeppelin, No Quarter Band, has been a constant until recently. Then, the musical We Will Rock You, by Queen, ‘Il Divo‘ 4ever, Once Upon a Time the Musical, The Jungle Book, Teparatres, Forever King Of Pop, The Spirit of Broadway, RENT, Those Crazy Ghosts, Rawckett….”

Sounds a little rough singing Everyone's A Star.

Yeah, watching that live video has lowered my expectations even further with regards to the new album as I am sure they are redoing the vocals with this new singer.

    • 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.

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  
    • warrant?? CP and DED destroy the debut imo. 🤷
    • Eric Clapton-Chronicles Best Of John Fogerty-Centerfield Genesis-...And Then There Were Three... Jimi Hendrix-Electric Ladyland Billy Joel-The Stranger L.A. Guns-S/T Bruno Mars-Unorthodox Jukebox Motley Crue-The Dirt Soundtrack Simple Minds-Glittering Prize Patty Smyth-S/T U2-The Joshua Tree    
    • Such was commonplace around here years ago. 
    • That's an oxymoron-even KarpetRyd knows that !  
    • Checked this out....not too bad but not sure how memorable it'll be. There's a few tunes I thought sounded pretty good after my first listen and do think Ronnie sounds excellent on the album  Songs like Scream and Shot in the Dark both stood out to me a bit.  I thought Last Man Alive sounded decent too. Much of the rest kind of feels like it falls in line with the first 2 singles that were released.  It's kind of heavy which is cool but just not coming off as being that catchy or memorable initially which was sort of my same problem with the last album.   We'll see what happens with more listens.  Here's a link to the whole album:
