New album 'Lions' out July 10th on Frontiers.  

New tune....Nice!  

Awesome song!    Needed a ray of sunshine during the covid blues.

New tune sounded pretty good on the cruise and sure it will sound even better with full production on the album.

They also said the new album will be out in June.

you mean they actually played a TMF song ;)

all we got was D2, Trixter and Rainbow

Yeah...They played probably 5 or 6 TMF tunes.  Then 2 DD, 2 Trixter and I think one Rainbow song.

I enjoyed hearing Ted doing the DD stuff and Steve doing the Trixter stuff being that Trixter isn't really a thing at the moment.

They also had Danny Vaughn on stage to do Street of Dreams which I thought was pretty cool.

pissed me off tbh.  I would much rather have just heard the whole TMF album.

They probably were thinking the fans would rather hear the DD or Trixter stuff then TMF. For whatever reason.

If they want to sell records, they need to do more TMF live. Simple as that!

I have high expectations for this. 

I got to have a nice conversation with Steve Brown on the Monsters of Rock cruise and basic gist that I got from him was TMF started out as mostly a project that they weren't sure where it would go.  However, it sounded to me like they have put a lot of effort into album #2 and are hoping they can build this up a bit.  Steve said with Trixter basically having nothing going on he's had much more time to devote to this and they're hoping to expand the number of shows they're playing and exposure.  Obviously this corona business isn't going to help them playing shows much though.

Looking forward to this one and really hoping it's good.  Steve was so cool to talk to and was just super nice guy.  Honestly, it felt like I was talking to a friend from high school I hadn't seen in 25 years or something lol.

Thought I saw first single is out this week so hopefully we get a taste soon.

1. Agreed. Another Frontiers artwork fail. That cover is really poor.

2. I'm sure it will be better than the average track above!

Samples of all tunes are up on I Tunes Japan...

I'm digging what I'm hearing.  Sounds like lots of Def Leppard type vocal harmonies and riffs going on....Much like the debut with Put Me to Shame, Done to Me etc.

Seems like the tempo slows a little bit in the second half but sounding good to me overall.

happy to say Young Blood is very nice indeed.

And they sorted out the production

Absolutely love the song. 

Not sure what Ted's doing in the video but it's atrocious behaviour.

Definitely sounding better.  Saw it was mixed by Bruno Ravel and mastered by Maor Applebaum so it seems like they definitely put a bit more effort into that part of it. 

I don't harp on that stuff and honestly rarely notice production on most releases.  But I noticed it on their debut.  And once you notice it, it's hard to "un-notice" it lol.  Glad they got that buttoned up.
