I know Chris the drummer died in 1994. Not sure if the other two guys are involved or not.

New/old single "Bad Moon" will be released soon. It appeared on McQueen Street "2" disc.

Sad. Do you know how he died?

From Wiki:

After struggling with drug addiction and the long and taxing process of recovery, Derek's brother and former drummer Chris Welsh passed away in 1994 due to a viral illness.

Jeez, sounds like a rough few years. I can't even remember if I knew they were brothers.

So have the re-recorded this or are they just releasing a single 17 years late?

I was under the impression they remixed them and were re-releasing them.

Wow! Last I heard the singer was in a coma from a serious head injury on a tennis court. Glad to hear he's back in action. Didn't know his brother had passed away either. Looking forward to their 3rd release.

 

Anyone know where I can find a bonafide edition of McQueen Street 2 on cd? The one released by the band not the Russian boot.

That's a good continuation of form after a long absence. Way to hold onto their style. 

It's a cool song but I hope a future release would have a fuller, ballsier sound (particularly those drums) that we have become accustomed to from these guys.

So are they re-releasing their second album with additional tracks?  If I remember, that second one was just sold as a cd-r (at least that's what mine was when I bought it). I would love to get an updated copy of it and maybe better sound with some new tracks.

    • First, I'm just impressed you found a video where you can actually hear Lzzy; everything I'd seen the last 2 days was terrible sound quality. With that said, she sounds fine. Not gonna make anyone forget Sebastian, or Erik for that matter, but she'll do a good job filling in 👍
    • Was this release on an EP CD?

    • From Escape Music: KEYS has just completed their second album, “The Grand Seduction”.   This all-keyboard band is the brainchild of singer Jake E (Cyhra, Amaranthe and others) and keyboardist Mark Mangold (Touch, Drive, She Said, Michael Bolton, Cher, Paul Rogers and others) with Emanuel Bagge (Sweden’s Got Talent Finalist) on additional vocals and keys, Irwan Fabrien (noted keyboard guitar sound designer) with help of drum gurus Alex Landenburg (Kamelot, Cyhra and others).   Featuring live performances with three keyboardists and a huge battery of keyboards, this ambitious band brings keyboard and instrumental prowess to new heights while playing songs that run the gamut from scathing progressive melodic forays to catchy and melodic rock anthems …and Jake’s award-winning voice (Burrn Vocalist of the year 2020).   Previous KEYS album also featured guest keyboard additions by Charlie Calv of Angel and others.   Though songs are first and foremost, this band shows the versatility of keyboards in this day and age.  These artfully crafted songs are ripe with scathing synth, organ and “guitar” pyrotechnics, dazzling time signatures and drumming, bombastic choruses and “guitar” riffs (played on keyboards with the now available plug in’s that perfectly emulate guitars).  As Mark and Jake are first and foremost award winning songwriters, they never lose sight of the composition and melodies, though couched in the very signature and hard to pigeon hole sound (isn’t that the whole point?) of this band and Jake's 4 octave vocal range.   Release Date: 19th July 2024 CD Catalogue No: ESM389   CD Track List: 1. THE GRAND SEDUCTION 9:02 2. ALL I NEED  6:49 3. SHINING SAILS  5:51 4. SWITCHBLADE  6:02 5. VORTEX   4:06 6. SKIN AND BONES  6:42 7. TURN TO DUST    4:42 8. CRAZY TOWN   7:43 9. THOUGHT WE HAD FOREVER  6:04 10. THE WORLD IS OURS (Curse the Lies)   4:02   Vinyl Track List: Side A 1. THE GRAND SEDUCTION 6:47 2. ALL I NEED 6:49 3. SHINING SAILS 5:51 4. VORTEX 4:06   Side B 1. SWITCHBLADE 6:02 2. SKIN AND BONES 6:42 3. TURN TO DUST 4:42 4. CRAZY TOWN 7:43   PRODUCED BY MARK MANGOLD AND JAKE E MIXED BY MARK MANGOLD MASTERED BY MAOR APPELBAUM
