From Frontiers:

Frontiers Music Srl is pleased to announce the signing of the Swedish melodic rock combo RIAN to a multi-album deal! The first release will be the band's sophomore album, “Twenty-Three,” which is currently taking shape under the direction of producer Daniel Flores (Find Me, The Murder Of My Sweet).

The new songs were written during 2018-2020 and based on melodies and lyrics written by vocalist/guitarist Richard Andermyr. The initial ideas from Richard were crafted into songs that the band arranged together: first with Richard and drummer Jan Johannsson and later on with the full band.

RIAN released their debut album “Out Of The Darkness” in July 2017, which was well received by fans and melodic rock media alike. The band made its live debut during 2018, which began the process of the band becoming more and more of a live unit. Add the amazing lead guitars of Tobias Jakobsson into the mix with the band and you have the cocktail that makes up the RIAN 2.0 sound.

"We are really pleased to sign with Frontiers Music Srl. Since our first contact, the label has been nothing but helpful. We feel right at home with the support we’ve received so far and look forward to using this relationship to enable us to provide our fans with a steady supply of quality music for the years to come. Our sound can, in the easiest way, be explained as a modern version of classic melodic rock music, the way it was produced in the second half of the 80’s. The sound is American, but the melodies and chord progressions have very strong Swedish roots. Influences such as Bon Jovi, Dokken, Europe, Queensryche, Survivor, and Winger can be heard in the sound. Also, more modern vibes the likes of Alter Bridge have a presence in our music,” explains Richard Andermyr.

Keep an eye out for RIAN’s return in the coming months!

Band Members: 
Richard Andermyr: Vocals, Guitar
Jan Johansson: Drums
Jonas Melin: Bass
Tobias Jakobsson: Lead Guitar

The debut was solid.  With a tour under their belt and addition of a new guitarist I'm interested in hearing what the new album will sound like.  Flores usually does a nice job with production but his involvement could be a mixed blessing.  Some of the albums he's worked on recently have started sounding a bit too similar, in my opinion.

I like the song but I feel like the chorus doesn't quite match the intro to the song.  The intro has a much heavier sound and kinda sets the expectation of a different song than we end up getting.  Still like it and definitely can't wait to hear the album.  The first one was really good.

Good, super consistent album. These guys remind me a lot of The Radio Sun. Not identical in style or anything, but they have a formula and stick to it throughout the album without really belting out a clear cut album highlight, but also not producing anything poor either. Solid.
