I would describe it as Journey with balls. 

Yeah, I guess, compared to Journey.

Journey was one band that I was never really exposed to too much.
Maybe a bit before my time and/or didn't really get too much exposure in Aus.
Don't Stop Believin' is really the only song I can think of by them, and thet really only came through to me in the last 10 years or so.

Not sure if this is unique to me of if other Aussies can comment on how much/little Journey made it into Australia.

They were before my time, even as a young kid, but I never knew of them at all until I got into sites like this n' stuff. Never saw/heard them as a kid, though, and I also get the impression they never made much impression here. You just never hear any of their hits on the radio like you do random Poison, Whitesnake, Warrant etc.

Yeah, that's my take.
I mean we were exposed to a toone of US bands growing up, but for some reason Journey was never really there.
Styx would be another one, except for Babe

From Frontiers:

Revolution Saints will release their new album, "Rise" on January 24, 2020 on CD/LP/Digital. Pre-orders, including t-shirt bundles, available now! 

Stay tuned in the coming weeks for a music video for first single, 'When The Heartache Has Gone' and another single from the album.

More details on the album below.

Revolution Saints are returning with their third album!

Featuring none other than Deen Castronovo (The Dead Daisies, ex-Journey, Bad English), Doug Aldrich (The Dead Daisies, Burning Rain, ex-Whitesnake, DIO), and Jack Blades (Night Ranger), Revolution Saints have now completed their incredible third album, “Rise”. As with the first two well-received albums, Rev Saints (as the fans like to call them) are bringing back the classic melodic rock style that thrilled and delighted legions of fans in the ‘80s and ‘90s and still does today! Inspiring, uplifting vocals, soaring melodies, and musicianship to die for is what you get in spades here. Simply put, it is completely badass. Stream the first single, 'When The Heartache Has Gone' here: https://radi.al/Rise

Superbly handling drums and lead vocals is the one and only Deen Castronovo. Already renowned for his drum talents and backing vocals in Journey, Bad English, and more, Deen's excellent vocal talents are once again receiving a well-deserved spotlight on this release. On bass, and co-lead vocals on a few tracks, Jack Blades is well known for his melodic, yet hard rocking approach to songwriting and playing via multiple classic albums by his main band Night Ranger, as well as with the Damn Yankees and the Shaw/Blades releases. On guitar, Doug Aldrich lends his fiery guitar attack to round out this dream-come-true melodic rock band. Doug, who left Whitesnake after a fruitful 12 year run (including co-writing 2010’s critically acclaimed "Forevermore" release) and also of Burning Rain and formerly of DIO, has a deep pedigree and is one of today’s most respected rock guitarists.

You can tell by the name - and the names involved - that REVOLUTION SAINTS is not going to be your average rock 'n roll band. The project is the vision of Frontiers' President Serafino Perugino, who for years had hoped to work on a project where Deen would be the lead vocalist. Having previously worked with all three artists on different projects on Frontiers, having Deen, Jack and Doug on board together was a dream come true for Perugino.

With production overseen by more and more in demand in-house Frontiers man, Alessandro Del Vecchio, the recording process took place in Milan and in Doug and Jack’s own studios in California and Seattle. Songwriting was handled by Del Vecchio, Aldrich, and Blades with contributions from fellow Frontiers recording artist Dan Rossall (of UK newcomers PASSION). Of special note, the poignant ballad “Eyes Of A Child” was penned by Jack Blades and Tommy Shaw.

REVOLUTION SAINTS' music is played with a heart, soul, and spirit that shines through in the music. These songs highlight the passion and enthusiasm of three of the best all-around rock ‘n roll musicians in the game today.

Truly, lovers of melodic rock have a new favorite album on their hands.

The band’s last album, “Light In The Dark” (2017) entered the U.S. Billboard Charts in the Top 100 Current Albums, Top 30 Current Rock Albums, and Top 20 Independent Albums charts.

Is he really more and more in demand? Or is it simply signing with Frontiers means he is producing?

that's because in their prime 79-86 they barely toured outside of the US and so were not that well known (outside of the US obviously)

The weird thing is that I, and everyone had heard of them, but just weren't exposed to their music.

Kind of strange.

Yeah, you're right. I've always found that strange also, especially considering that Steve Perry's "Oh Sherrie" was always and still is a staple of commercial radio down here. It actually charted #5 Nationally here in the mid 80's (thank you Wikipedia).

    • Tonight's the first time I've ever heard either of these songs... I dig 'em  This guy wrote "Maybe it Was Memphis" which was a huge hit for Pam Tillis years ago    
    • Damn I've been checking insurance costs for the BMW and Audi and it is ridiculous.....I'm thinking about going with a North American car.....may take a hard look at a new Mustang GT.....insurance for it is about half the cost of the other 2....at least those are the numbers I see online, reality may be different....
    • THE OFFSPRING – Let the Bad Times Roll (2021) April 12, 2021     from various sopurces: Working with mega producer Bob Rock (Metallica, Mötley Crüe, Bon Jovi) THE OFFSPRING are back next week with their new album ”Let The Bad Times Roll”: twelve tracks that are drenched with shades of their previous offerings, while delivering a vibrant modern sound that’s seen the title track ‘Let The Bad Times Roll’ elevated to high rotation on rock radio with its commercial polish, while keeping the attitude of the band intact. With ”Let The Bad Times Roll” The Offspring provide a refreshing soundtrack to your own personal apocalypse. Sugar-coating nothing with a satisfyingly merry acknowledgment that everything currently sucks, this is the perfect album to crank the volume on when you’re content just to watch the world burn for a day… Returning to their signature blend of jovial rock n’ pop-punky with a cheeky twist, the album kicks off without foreplay. “This Is Not Utopia,” a rhythmically palpitating opener led by power chords and gang chants, denounces modern-day America from being the Promised Land it monikers itself to be. It might seem a curious move from a band that doesn’t consider itself political, but it sets the tone perfectly for what follows. The title track and lead single, “Let the Bad Times Roll” is a near-perfect return to form. Its aggressive, guitar stabbing verses coupled with its poppy, acoustic-based chorus, and weighty lyrical undertones make it a perfect fit for the playlist to Satan’s spin class. And yet, the lazy fade-out that tags on to the end of the song is unforgivable, rendering its built-up momentum impotent. One of the most enjoyable things about ‘Let the Bad Times Roll’ is every member is clearly heard, feels completely present, and sounds wholly invested. Even on the reimagined Offspring milestone” Gone Away”, stripped back to a piano and vocal rendition with hints of strings that is as beautiful as it is haunting. A result in no small part due to another return from legendary producer, Bob Rock (Metallica, Motley Crue), who clearly knows what fans want to hear on a great Offspring record. Traits such as the dynamic duo of vocalist Dexter Holland and guitarist Noodles being a sonic force throughout. Especially evident on more moving numbers such as “Behind Your Walls,” which sees Holland cater to the verse with a seldom heard, lower register to his vocal delivery. Again with “Coming for You”, which is brought to life by drummer Pete Padara and newcomer Todd Morse on bass. Morse makes a great impression on this record, particularly on what is sure to become an instant Offspring classic, the satirically, and joyously depressing, “We Don’t Have Sex Anymore”. Led by a bass line that sounds like a nod to The Cure’s “Lovecats”, everything about this piece, from the horn section to the playful piano and painful, yet hilarious storytelling delivered by Holland, catapults this tale of sexless woe into the stratosphere. The album’s standout track, it achieves its own kind of happy ending, even if no one else does. Despite what it might initially allude to, ‘Let the Bad Times Roll’ is not the overtly political statement it might suggest itself be. The narrative is one of reflections, not criticisms, observations as opposed to opinions, while musically the energy, thankfully, is as dynamic as ever. A fun and entertaining shot for this lock down era. Tracklist: 01 – This Is Not Utopia 02 – Let The Bad Times Roll 03 – Behind Your Walls 04 – Army Of One 05 – Breaking These Bones 06 – Coming For You 07 – We Never Have Sex Anymore 08 – In The Hall Of The Mountain King 09 – The Opioid Diaries 10 – Hassan Chop 11 – Gone Away 12 – Lullaby Dexter Holland – lead and backing vocals, guitar Noodles – guitar Pete Parada – drums Todd Morse – bass guitar Bob Rock – producer, mixing, engineer   Pre order: www.target.com/p/the-offspring-let-the-bad-times-roll-target-exclusive-cd/-/A-82383162 theoffspring.concordrecords.com/products/the-offspring-let-the-bad-times-roll-cd/
    • I'd rather you go to the "I Love Geoff Tate" forum and post all you want there.  
    • Think I should post about Sweet Oblivion in the prog rock and metal section ? It’s difficult to categorize this great music !
    • People can do whatever they want with their own fiction, it's the people who subscribe to it that are weeding each other out, sadly some of us who dont, are also caught in the crossfire
    • I love the music. The vocals....... not so much. I agree musically it sounds like FarCry but a drastic change in vocal style. Maybe it will grow on me.
    • Never even knew this existed until today. Vinyl only release limited to 500 copies. Band was still in Canada at this time before moving to the US. Anyone ever heard this? April 12, 2021     Now very rare, this was a limited 500 copies – vinyl only – press via Precision Records. This was the time when the band rocked in their native Canada before moving to USA. Musically, they were much more raw, with a glam punky sleazy sound which was instantly adored by headbangers for their adrenaline charged, wasted tunes like “Nuclear Attack”, “I Do What I Want” and “Here Comes The Night”. Almost impossible to find vinyl. Tracklist: 01 – Here Comes The Night 02 – She’s So Pretty 03 – Everybody’s Gonna Have A Real Good Time 04 – I’ll Do What I Want 05 – Oh Love 06 – Nuclear Attack 07 – I Was Gonna Ron Sweetheart Collie – lead vocals Jeff Campbell – guitar, vocals Michael Lotimer – bass, vocals Peter Lotimer – drums, vocals   Out of print
