From Frontiers:

BREAKING NEWS: On December 6, 2019, we will release the debut album from Lovekillers, which features Tony Harnell (Starbreaker, ex-TNT) on lead vocals. What does it sound like? Lovekillers sees Harnell deliver soaring vocals and the hard rock sound reminiscent of the widely heralded '80s TNT albums. Written by Harnell, producerAlessandro Del Vecchio and writers like Nigel Bailey, Pete Alpenborg, Marco Sivo, & Jonas Hornqvist, melodic hard rock doesn’t get any better than this!

More details, first single, and pre-orders to be announced later this year.

Know nothing about this before seeing this thread, but I'll put it out there - I reckon this one might just be a really pleasant surprise. I bet it belts the balls off the Starbreaker album.

More info from Frontiers:

Frontiers Music Srl is pleased to announce the new melodic rock project, LOVEKILLERS feat. TONY HARNELL, which is due out on December 6, 2019. 

Well known for being the vocalist of TNT’s classic line-up, Tony Harnell is an accomplished musician and songwriter who has also worked with such bands as Starbreaker and Westworld, while also performing as a solo artist. Harnell's vocals are unique entity in the melodic hard rock and rock worlds and Lovekillers marks a return to a sound reminiscent of classic '80s melodic hard rock. The album is an over-the-top and straight ahead tribute to that classic '80s sound, bringing it back with a passion and the amazing vocal register that only Harnell can deliver.

“I think Lovekillers is a different beast compared to many of the things I worked on in the past,” says Tony. “It has a lighter, more American and very melodic feel. It was a very comfortable territory, artistically, singing those songs. Sometimes, I also worked to tweak some lyrics and melodies here and there and on a couple of songs I worked harder to rewrite them, but I think the end result speaks for itself.”

On this album, Tony collaborated with in-demand Frontiers in-house producer Alessandro Del Vecchio (Hardline, JORN, Revolution Saints) and the end result is a a glossy, polished record with top-notch production. Besides Del Vecchio and Harnell, songwriters on the album include Nigel Bailey, Pete Alpenborg, Marco Sivo, and Jonas Hornqvist.

Tony Harnell recently became the first American to be inducted into Norway's prestigious Rockheim Hall of Fame. He was inducted along with TNT and the ceremony will be televised nationally in Norway later this year. 

For melodic rock fans, Lovekillers feat. Tony Harnell is a can't miss!

That is glorious. And how we need to be hearing Tony Harnell. I can't even really think back to the last great album he's been on. :( Would it be the last Westworld album? I don't know, but it shouldn't be so long. Cannot wait to hear this one.

Nope, it's glorious. ;)

I was surprised you were interested at all as I thought you were quite a large non-fan of this guy. :)

I, however, am a massive fan and nothing makes my ears happier than to hear him finally do something good again.

I liked more than 10. I could probably get 10 I love off My Religion alone!

No one else has mentioned this so I will....... that is one of the worst album covers and band logos I have ever seen in my life. Why the fuck does Frontiers continue to have such shit artwork?? Looks like someone dig it with a red crayon. F-U-G-L-Y!

Are you talking about schlongs? No one matches my 2.5 inch anaconda. 

I'll wait for a full album until I compare this to Harnell-fronted TNT, but I will say with 100% conviction that this album will be better than any TNT album without Harnell. Light years better.

    • Killer tune, but a pretty shit clip if truth be told.  I feel a bit sorry for this band/album. They've released a good product which has been pretty harshly assessed based on it not meeting some very high expectations. But there's still some awesome stuff on this thing. 
    • Go listen to your symphonic power metal with all the lyrical interest of an anal wart. This thread is for people who appreciate brilliance and lesbians who wink at Karpetface suggestively.  You slouchy creep.
    • Nice. Some brilliant stuff on that album. 
    • Very interesting little piece was that. It's funny that where he thinks he "upped his game" is where all his fans here lost interest - around the time of 'Sycamore Meadows' and beyond.  Hearing him do 'Don't Move' reminded me again how awesome that song and album is.  Pretty crazy when you see exactly who he has written with/for and produced. No doubt that sets a dude up for life, and then several more lives if desired.  Seeing that documentary, though, you know there is not even a glimmer of hope that he would ever go back to doing anything that we would ever enjoy again (though I did like a couple of songs off the last album). But hey, when you're that successful, I guess you do what you feel like doing and he's obviously just doing whatever he's drawn to at any given time and it's impossible to be critical of someone for doing that. Seeing his explanation for 'Afraid Of Ghosts' makes me want to love that album. It may even make me revisit it. Very grounded dude in a luxurious position of really being able to do whatever he wants, musically, with no obligation other than to record what he's passionate about. 
    • Recycled track off the 'Bring It' album. Interesting. That's the biggest shame of all this - that I actually enjoy this guy's music and would love to hear more... but wow, what a fuck up.
    • Awesome, thanks. An hour long is going to require some work, but I'm keen to see it. Thanks for that. 
    • Cool. I get a little tingle in my heart when these guys can put aside whatever crap went in on the past and get back together to remember the good times and what the accomplished together. Something sweet and sexy about it. I'd be surprised if they produced a good new album, but I'd love it if they actually did it. 
    • Very true. Especially this time of the year with Christmas and New year just around the corner, we need to be extra careful because here in my state, night carnivals n concerts are everyday events and thousands throng to these places, eat, get drunk and hit the roads. So if you re unlucky you might end up with a bad experience. Anyway speaking of which, one dent and one scratch in my car in two months lol. It's really annoying.
