I loved Tower City. 

Press release:

This isn’t the typical “come-back” story, though. Forget the band previously signed with Warner Brothers, Interscope and Atlantic, and were managed by Don Arden (the music industry legend who worked with rock icons like Ozzy Osborne, Jerry Lee Lewis and Electric Light Orchestra). For the band today, it’s 100% about the music, and the way it’s meant to be experienced.

The album was recorded and mixed by Colorvine at The Fenix Room. Mastered by Ken Love (DeGarmo & Key, Greg X Volz, Holy Soldier, Spock’s Beard, Neal Morse) at Sweetwater Studios

“The song ‘Radio Days’ really states what this album is about. We want to bring people back to those days of turning up the radio and singing our favorite songs – even listening to an entire album like we used to!” said band co-founder Heath Saltis. Grammy-nominated band mates Heath and Larry Saltis describe the new album as “a true passion project and labor of love two years in the making.”

With a focus on “giving the people what they want,” Colorvine proves they can still excite listeners with their own brand of melodic rock that mixes past and present; from Wake Up’s first track to its last, the album blends multiple genres into a single harmonic tour de force. It’s a refreshing change, in the era of single digital downloads, to listen to an album carefully crafted for a beginning-to-end experience.

“They say that a change is as good as a rest,” writes music reviewer Dave Franklin, “but in the case of Colorvine, this rest seems to have brought them back both hungry, energized and brilliantly focused as songwriters.”

Setting the pace for the rest of the album, Wake Up’s first track “Like A Rocket” is the perfect opener to announce Colorvine’s return with a chorus that invites the listener to join them as they “run and chase the music they love.” The album’s first single, “Victory Song,” features big harmonies, infectious drum beats, and in-your-face guitar chords that will have you pressing repeat as soon as the song finishes. This is a high-energy and highly relatable song that celebrates rising above life’s challenges. And the album’s title track “Wake Up” may very well have the widest appeal as it challenges listeners to find their own meaning within the lyrics.

Colorvine is:

Larry Saltis – Lead Vocals, Guitar (Tower City, New Monkees)
Heath Saltis – Drums, Percussion, Keyboards, Background Vocals (Tower City)
Kurt Reed – Bass Guitar, Background Vocals

1. Like A Rocket
2. Victory Song
3. Wake Up
4. Radio Days
5. Change In The Weather
6. Smoke
7. Happy Broken Heart
8. Be The One
9. Closer
10. Say You Love Me

Looking forward to hearing it.

Now, what about a remaster of New Monkees album on cd ? Which  Larry played on.

I enjoyed Tower City's two albums also, especially their debut.   The new material isn't bad, for what it is, but unfortunately the sound has little in common with those prior releases, more of a modern, pop feel to them.

    • Done! It's Official: Original BULLETBOYS Lineup Reunites For More Than 50 Shows, New Music December 12, 2019 39 Comments FacebookTwitterPinterestRedditMore7.8K It's official: the original platinum-selling BULLETBOYS lineup, featuring Marq Torien, Mick Sweda, Lonnie Vencent and Jimmy D'Anda, is returning in 2020! The hard rockers will kick off the reunion with a hometown gig on December 30 at their old haunt, the Whisky a Go Go in West Hollywood. Aside from one show in 2011, this original lineup has not performed together since 1993. "I would never have guessed this reunion would have come about, but the world seems to have its own plan filled with peace, love and kindness," says guitarist Mick Sweda. "And lots of ass kicking!" Add vocalist Marq Torien: "I am completely ecstatic about this rad magical new beginning for us. It's on!" BULLETBOYS formed in 1988 at the very peak of the Los Angeles glam metal movement. As a collection of talented musicians, BULLETBOYS were able to quickly capture the attention of music fans around the world. Unlike other rockers of the day, the BULLETBOYS possessed more hard rock-blues fusion than pure hair metal. Thanks to comparisons to the likes of AEROSMITH and VAN HALEN, talent scouts came running and the band quickly received their first major label contract. BULLETBOYS' self-titled debut was released in 1988 via Warner Bros. and peaked at number 34 on the Billboard 200. The album spawned two hit singles, a cover of the O'JAYS classic "For The Love Of Money" and "Smooth Up in Ya", both of which charted on the Mainstream Rock chart and saw regular airplay on MTV. BULLETBOYS went on to release two more albums, 1991's "Freakshow" and 1993's "Za-Za", before splitting up. The reunited BULLETBOYS is booked by noted agency ARM Entertainment. More than 50 shows are currently in the works in the U.S. and around the world. BULLETBOYS also promises to deliver new music in the coming year. "All's well and ends well," bassist Lonnie Vencent says. "BULLETBOYS 2020! Pigs are flying!" Says drummer Jimmy D'Anda: "Does anybody remember laughter!?" BULLETBOYS tour dates: Dec. 30 - West Hollywood, CA @ Whisky a Go Go Apr. 19 - West Hollywood @ Rainbow Anniversary Party Jul. 25 - Beaver Dam, KY @ Rock The Dam Fest
