One Desire - Midnight Empire

Recommended Posts

From FB:

Hi everyone!

A little bit bigger update here:
After being locked away in the studio darkness for the past year here’s finally a sign of life. We have just started the final sprint to completion of the album and finally the songs and lyrics are coming together the way we like it from start to finish on tape. The sound and material is gonna be killer beast. Damn.. If I would resemble this album in racing terms it would probably be something like “Super car speed all the way with 2 gas stops in between”. Haha 

Yes most of it is up-tempo, a lot of riffs combined with beautiful vox melodies and some guitar fire in between. We can’t wait for you to hear this and I have promised Frontiers Records to give away some sound samples soon before starting the mixes.

So what’s next.. The whole picture is basically painted, still however bits and pieces here and there. A couple lyrics we gotta finish with Andre, 2-3 guitar solos, 3-4 background vox packages and some keys here and there before this puzzle is complete. The big strokes are done and we are now adding the last colors and touches to this beast. Final mixing and mastering during October / November.

Upcoming month we will start planning art work, upcoming video rec dates, album track list, dates for singles and album release etc. Big tour for 2020 locked. We will play a lot next year and we are putting in lots of effort in the live thing so the shows will get something new and fresh for our second album.. I could go on but I will let the music do the talking.

I promise to post some fun behind the scenes footage from making of the album. Soon folks, soon..

Meanwhile come see us in Hamburg next weekend on Friday. We will have a really good time with all the other cool bands and the fans. 
One Desire Show Time 18:30.

With love from Finland
Jimmy & all the guys in One Desire

 

Wow! Look at those artists.

Nice festival lineup!

I'm guessing the new album will be a winter-spring 2020 release, not a 2019 release?

 'Midnight Empire' to be released early next year.

From FB:

Announcement!

One Desire New Album and European Tour 2020!

The new album is called “Midnight Empire”. It’s a bomb and it drops first quarter of 2020. We have been working really hard the whole year and the mixes are next to done. Midnight Empire will be mastered in 2 weeks. We love it and we think it’s the perfect follow up to the debut.

One Desire is heading out on a big European Tour in 2020 starting March 6th (UK) London. We are joining our friends in The Night Flight Orchestra and it will be an awesome spectacle.

More info to be followed.. Stay tuned!

Happy Independence Day Finland!

That second clip sounds absolutely awesome.

Despite all the big name albums being released this year this is definitely the dark horse.

Not gonna lie, I had never heard of these guys before but YouTube recommened Hurt to me a couple of weeks ago, and I was interested enough to order the debut CD. Got it on Friday, and have been alternating between this and Passion for two days now.

Have gone from never having heard of them to looking forward to the new album in a matter of days. Such an amazing debut album.

    • Everyone's heard Maiden's cover of the Skyhoos song women In Uniform. Came across this one of Horror Movie, which is also pretty cool.    
    • From Frontiers: Stardust, a Hungarian melodic rock/AOR band, will release their much anticipated debut full-length on October 9, 2020. One of the hottest new AOR bands to come out of the underground European scene, Stardust's independently released self-titled debut EP stirred up quite a buzz in the underground melodic rock scene. The band were put to the attention of Frontiers' staff during one of the Frontiers Rock Festivals. Impressed with the band's melodic rock stylings on their debut EP, Frontiers moved swiftly to sign the band to the roster. Of the band's sound, vocalist Adam Stewart says, "We love Def Leppard, Winger, Journey and all the 80's stuff..So, we took those influences and mixed it in with our own 'Stardust' way of doing things. " Of notable mention is that none other than the mighty Mark Spiro (Bad English, House of Lords, Giant) and Swedish guitar hero Tommy Denander helped the guys with songwriting and production for their debut album. "One day I got a note from Mark Spiro! He wrote, 'Hey man, I found a good song that you would really love, what do you think?' I immediately listened to the song and it blew my mind! '2nd Hand Love' is a typical Spiro song with a magical atmosphere and a catchy chorus. I jumped right on it and made a new, modern kinda musical arrangement for the song. A riff centered verse, a bluesy chorus and a brand new intro part," explains Stewart of first single, '2nd Hand Love'. “Our first EP got really good feedback from the fans, not only from Hungary, but from around the world,” says Stewart. “I am certain that our debut album will be enjoyed by even more melodic rock fans thanks to our new cooperation with Frontiers. Stardust plays AOR/Melodic Rock with catchy melodies and lyrics, so Frontiers is truly a perfect home for us!" Founded by two friends, Adam Stewart (lead vocals) and Tim Keeley (drums) in 2015, the band is rounded out by Facey (lead guitar and vocals), Dave Legrand (keyboard), and Ben Martin (bass and vocals). The group's style is an amalgam of the classic melodic hard rock and AOR genres, with hooky choruses, beautiful keyboards, vocal harmonies, and loud guitars in the style of their favorite mid-80's bands, bringing to life this well beloved music in the 21st century. Stardust is the latest in a long line of amazing AOR/Melodic Rock signings for the label, so be sure to stay tuned as they are truly a rising star in the melodic rock scene. Line-up: Adam Stewart - Vocals, rhythm guitars Ben Martin - Bass Dave Legrand - Keyboards Facey - Guitars Tim Keeley - Drums   Tracklist: 1. Runaway 2. Heartbreaker 3. Bullet To My Heart 4. Perfect Obsession 5. 2nd Hand Love 6. Shout It Out 7. Can’t Stop Loving You 8. Eye To Eye 9. Hey Mother 10. Blue Jeans Eyes (Bonus Track) 11. The River Is Rollin’

    • Why is it that I picture Cody walking around his neighborhood in a trench coat and gumboots? Speaking of pictures, did you not have your phone with you? You really dropped the ball on that one mate. The next time this occurs I expect full video footage accompanied by a "meet the cast" video extra.  Don't let us down again! You're better than that.  
    • I would've watched I would've asked to join the fun as well...
    • Of course you'd watch any anyone who says otherwise is being untruthful.  Out of curiosity, did you romanticise yourself as you watched? 
    • Agree about Nirvana (liking them, that is).
    • Always liked Nirvana even though most people on this forum blame them for the grunge wave.....also I don't mind occasionally listening to Johnny Cash and Gordon Lightfoot....
