The Defiants - Zokusho

Recommended Posts

30 years after Bruno Ravel gave us the Danger Danger debut and nearly 30 years after the iconic Paul Laine debut, we find ourselves eagerly awaiting a new release from these two legends of our music. We are all very blessed. I feel 17 again.

For whatever reason, I didn't actually think they'd manage to follow up the debut. I'm glad to be wrong.

OK, so I'm currently on holiday in Rhodes, and while chllin' by the pool this afternoon I was browsing the forum and seen this new Defiants track had dropped. I had just got myself a nice cold Mythos so I layed back and pressed play and almost chocked on my beer as the song played 🤯 Damn if this isn't the best thing I've heard this year and have been listening to it on a loop. 

SU... FUCKING... PERB!!!

Will it come out in Japan first, I want it now?

It will but only two days earlier. I like the song it's really good, I will say this though.... it's not as impressive as ''Love and Bullets'' was when they released it as the debut's first single. Might be the element of surprise they had going for them, because by now we expect great music from this band

yeah, reading all other comments one would think this song is fantastic....

I think song is nice, but nothing great, will see what other tracks on the album sound like

Ridiculously good... as if it would have been anything but with these guys involved. Should comfortably crush anything released thus far this year. The one thing I don't get; Why isn't Steve West just an official proper member of this band?

And how's the solo too? There was a sexy dose of vintage Andy Timmons in that beauty. Love everything about this.

I was never a massive fan of the first album.
Tried really hard, listened heaps, but the songs were all too samey for me.
Eventually I picked out a bunch of songs that stood out slightly more and made a best of folder beginning with these.
But they were never really stand out songs too much. Maybe Take Me Back and Lil Miss RNR

Fallin' For You is pretty killer though.
Ticks all my boxes :)

I was never a massive fan of the first album, save a few songs. 

But then I listened to it again...

And again...

And again...

And now it's a part of my regular rotation.

The new songs are on Spotify, so you can at least blast those two all Summer.

I hate to be a downer, but for me this one would sound so much better with Poley on vox , Timmons on guitars and Lance Quinn on the control-board.

I understand preferring Ted over Paul or wanting to hear something that sounds like Danger Danger's debut.  But unfortunately that lineup is likely never recording together again.  There aren't many releases these days that come close to matching our favorites from the 80's.  But I'm thrilled that these guys are making another album, because in 2019 it doesn't get much better than the Defiants, imo.   Plus, didn't Tony Rey perform most of the guitar parts on the debut?  ;)

I love Ted but in my opinion the Defiants with Paul on vocals is as good as it gets. Even at this age, his vocals still sound the same the way it was back in the 'Stick it in your ear' days. Hasn't changed one bit.

Completely agree. 100%

    • Love it but me thinks Stan must of been listening to Def Lepp's Animal before writing as there is a BIG similarity even down to the Whao's... 
    • Yeah I dig that too. Very nice. Best thing I've heard from him in quite a while. 
    • Bon Jovi , everything released after 'These Days' and Def Leppard , everything released after 'Retro Active'....
    • First single from the new upcoming album. I dig it.    
    • I do enjoy that. So will this album actually ever be released, or is it just a song every month or so until we have 10 tracks? Feel like half a year ago this started being rolled out... 
    • Sad to hear. R.I.P and thanks for being a part of some magical tunes. 
    • I'd forgotten about these guys, but glad to see they're still at it. Cool song - something worth anticipating. 
    • Just listened to their new album. Very pleasantly surprised. This is good stuff. Arguably slightly samey but highly enjoyable.    Will have to dive into their back catalog.  Really like this track.     
    • This is the second single from the upcoming album "Dying Breed" due for release on Sept. 13th. Very good stuff from France.    
    • I'm not sure if this has been shared or not but Heavens Edge bassist George "G.G." Guidotti has passed away.  I was sad to hear this.  I love this band.  I actually stumbled across their release after it came out while I lived in Japan.  I didn't know who they were or heard anything from them.  I picked it up blindly and it blew me away.  I loved it so much I picked up the Rock Candy Records remaster of it and still play it often.  Below is post from the band on their webpage.  RIP GG and thanks for some great music.   August 20, 2019. It is with great sadness that we are announcing the passing of our brother George “G.G.” Guidotti who succumbed to lung cancer on Sunday, August 18th 2019. He was 57 years old. We met George in the summer of 1987 as we were putting the band together, and our lives would never be the same again. His impact was immediate. Once George joined the band, we knew the five of us would be set for life as brothers no matter what the rock and roll world had in store for us. George took the band’s stage show to the highest of highs. He never settled for anything less than the best for every one of us because he wanted our audiences to leave feeling their expectations were exceeded night after night. No one appreciated the audience more than George. For George, it wasn’t just enough to give it 110% on stage, he never let up off stage as well. If there were people laughing, or a good time was being had around the band, there was no question who was at the center of it all. George. Everywhere he went he was the catalyst for complete and total hilarious, rowdy insanity. But George was also thoughtful and compassionate. He would go to the ends of the earth for people in need. George was not perfect, as none of us are. But with George, he never hid his imperfections. He wore them on his sleeve out in the open for all to see. He was honest about the lifestyle he lived. When told he had lung cancer, he said to all of us, “What the hell did you expect?? I’ve been smoking since I was 10 years old!!” And then he laughed the way he always did. He didn’t want to go. But he knew his time on this earth was going to be cut short. For those who saw the second go ‘round with Heavens Edge, you saw a guy in George who defied aging. He was more energetic in his 50’s than most people are in their 20’s. His smile, ridiculous energy and pure love for being on stage reminded us that the band actually did “make it”. We made it because we found our brothers for life. We made it in the areas that count the most and we have George to thank for that. George “G.G.” Guidotti was a rock star. He didn’t make the money that some do. But he was a rock star just as much as any of them can be. We are going to miss him. Mark, Reggie, Steve and Dave
