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)

Kurt Reed – Bass Guitar, Background Vocals

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.
