From Frontiers:

BREAKING NEWS: West Bound featuring Chas West have announced their debut album, "Volume 1" will be released on February 22, 2019. 

West Bound/Chas West are a hard-hitting new rock band formed in the L.A. area by vocalist Chas West (Resurrection Kings, Bonham, Lynch Mob, etc.) and renowned guitarist/producer Roy Z (Bruce Dickinson, Halford, Tribe of Gypsies), with a line-up completed by Jimmy Burkard (guitar), Jason Cornwell (bass), and Dave “Chilli” Moreno (drums). Additionally, Stephen LeBlanc provides keyboards and Brian Tichy (ex-Whitesnake, Ozzy Osbourne, Foreigner) co-wrote and played drums on two songs for the album. West Bound offer up their take on the classic hard rock sound with soulful vocals, a touch of the blues, and killer melodies.

On where the inspiration of the band’s sound came from, Chas West says his “influences come from 70’s and 80’s classic hard rock, back when music was, in my opinion, real and passionate, from the heart & soul. Bands like Led Zeppelin, Whitesnake, Deep Purple, Foreigner, Aerosmith, Van Halen, etc. were what we grew up on and we just went back to our youth when writing the songs for the album.”

If you remember the great bluesy hard rock explosion from the late ‘80s and early ‘90s with bands like Tesla, Cinderella, Badlands, Tora Tora, and Salty Dog and else enjoy the modern throwback hard rock like Rival Sons, Massive Wagons, Inglorious, and the like, then you are going to find West Bound right up your alley.

On the first single and video, Chas explains that “the song Never Surrender” is one that Roy Z and I came up with in the studio. It’s about going through struggles in life and never giving up on your dream despite them. People can relate to it in their own lives…it’s a theme we all know as human beings. Sometimes the tough times can help you define your true character.”

West Bound’s debut album, “Volume I” will be released on February 22, 2019 on Frontiers Music Srl. The band is currently in the midst of planning tour dates to support the album’s release. Expect more news on that in the new year.

Solid first track though the obvious copying of Ozzy during the chorus is a little... obvious.
