MIDNITE CITY announce new single “Crawlin’ In The Dirt”; release date for single & video set to January 22nd, 2021!
 
Since bursting out onto the scene with a vengeance in 2017, MIDNITE CITY have taken on the world and hustled themselves to the top of the pile to be crowned the true kings of Hair Metal.
 
Following on from the release of their sophomore album 'There Goes The Neighbourhood' in late 2018 (which was voted 5th best Melodic Rock album of the year in Classic Rock magazine and also made the list of the best albums of the past 35 year history of Japan's Burrn! magazine) the band have gone from strength to strength and proven to be one hell of a force to be reckoned with in the live arena.
 
MIDNITE CITY have headlined two consecutive UK tours, played shows all over Europe, Australia and also played two sold out shows in Japan and continue to dazzle a legion of growing and devoted fans around the world with their high energy, feel good, party rock.
 
Hot on the heels of two highly acclaimed albums, MIDNITE CITY return in 2021 with their highly anticipated third album “Itch You Can’t Scratch” on May 28th. With new label Roulette Media in tow, as well as new management and booking agent, the band are back looking and sounding better than ever with a new array of songs that will melt your face, so strap yourselves in for the ride of your life. It’s all about the good times!
+++++
MIDNITE CITY will release three singles from the album in advance. The first advance track, “Crawlin’ In The Dirt”, will be released on January 22nd and accompanied by a video. The band says about this track: “'Crawlin' In The Dirt' shows a tougher, edgier side to the band not seen or heard before. Midnite City kicks the doors off 2021 with a vengeance!'.
 
We will handle the PR for all three singles and the album world-wide except for the UK. “Crawlin’ In The Dirt” will be submitted to media via Haulix on January 22nd, 2021.

Sweet can't wait for this. As for the tour dates in May, that's not gonna happen.

Not a chance. 

Release date is my brother's birthday - I swear a very prolific band had the same release date either last year or the year before... I possibly thought it was Midnite City? Who knows. But yeah, couldn't be looking forward to it more.

Really strong lead single. Nice uptempo rocker with a more harder, edgier vibe. Production has gone up a notch too. Sounds like they have upped their game for this release - looking forward to hearing more.

That was down to problems with AOR Heaven... they apparently fell out with them which is why the new label.

From what I have seen with Collateral is pretty much a start up company, so my guess is the only way to really get their stuff is probably through their own website. Distribution is probably half arsed right now.

pretty good but not in the same league as WET or Creye imo 

It sounds ok but it's kinda minor league compared to WET and Creye (first spin through last night and I love it!).

    • From bravewords.com: New American super group Highway Sentinels have revealed release date and cover for their debut album The Waiting Fire, which will be released on CD and digital on July 22, 2022. Highway Sentinels consists of David Reece (vocals, Bangalore Choir, ex Accept), Steven Rosen (guitars); Jimmy Waldo – (keys, Alcatrazz); Donnie Van Stavern (bass, Riot V); Mark Zonder (drums, Fates Warning, Warlord)! Guests include Joe Satriani, Tracii Guns, Bumblefoot, Paul Gilbert, Mike Flyntz, Joe Stump, Herman Frank and more. Highway Sentinels is a project created by Steven Rosen and Jimmy Waldo. Steven, himself a legendary author, journalist and guitar enthusiast going back to the 1970s, be it traveling on a plane with Led Zeppelin or as a close friend of Eddie Van Halen; he has always been at the forefront of rock journalism and its surrounding culture. Jimmy Waldo, founding member of Alcatrazz and New England, as well as having performed and recorded with the likes of Quiet Riot, Vinnie Vincent, Blackthorne, Pretty Maids, WASP, Skull, The Scream and many more; Jimmy has an astounding resume and a catalog of recorded music few can rival. During the lockdowns of 2021 the two men set about recording a batch of songs that they had been working on for a number of years, some dating back even decades were brought into the mix. The right vocalist had to be found as the guys wanted one consistent singer throughout to tie it all together. And while there are a number of highly skilled guest guitarists on this record, the guys felt it important to also present this as a band-union so it not come across as yet another “chuck all these guys together and see what happens” type of project. Each guest soloist was chosen for the song, rather than “name value” alone. David Reece was this vocalist, his work with Accept, Bangalore Choir, Bonfire and as a solo artist speaks for itself… he was given complete freedom to write lyrics and vocal melodies. A couple of songs come from the past, “Afterlife” and “We Won’t Be Forgotten” come from Jimmy’s past with Blackthorne, and “Victim Of The Night” a song David had recorded with Bangalore Choir which never found its way onto the classic debut of that band. Mark Zonder on drums brings an enormous pedigree to the record, known worldwide as the longtime drummer of Fates Warning and Warlord as well as the newly launched A-Z band with Fates Warning vocalist Ray Alder it all made sense to have Mark Zonder be the featured drummer on this record. On bass we have Donnie Van Stavern, from the much loved metal legends Riot, Donnie’s involvement means that no one has to worry about the bottom end falling out of a song, or having to have the guitarist re-cut the bass parts in a backroom somewhere… Donnie only plays one way… and that is go for the throat full on metal.        
    • From Frontiers: Palace, the brainchild of Lithuanian born Swedish vocalist and multi-instrumentalist Michael Palace, returns with a fourth album, "One 4 The Road". Once again, Michael Palace handles all the instrumentation, songwriting, and production for the effort, which showcases his love for the imagery and sounds of the glorious ‘80s. "One 4 The Road" is an unabashedly massive AOR/Melodic Rock album, as has come to be expected from this gifted Swede's output under the Palace moniker. Palace's sound can best be described as a carefully curated blend of all the greatest arena rock, AOR, and hard rock from the 80’s delivered in a tight-knit package. Unforgettable choruses, virtuosic guitars, clever lyricism, and a true passion for the retro aesthetic...Palace tickles the nostalgia nerve, while maintaining a firm foothold in the now. Michael Palace first began collaborating with Frontiers as a songwriter and guitarist for First Signal, which of course features legendary Harem Scarem vocalist Harry Hess, Cry of Dawn featuring Goran Edman, Kryptonite featuring The Poodles vocalist Jakob Samuel, and Pride Of Lions vocalist Toby Hitchcock. Those successful (and musically delightful) collaborations led to a deal with Frontiers where Michael could deliver songs in his own vision without other musicians in mind under the name Palace. "One 4 The Road" is the fourth release by Michael's solo vehicle, which he has been releasing albums by bi-annually since 2016.  Michael Palace is best known for his namesake project, where he is responsible for every part of the production. Michael does it, not out of necessity, but rather a deep love for the entire craft, and frequently collaborates with a vast number of artists and musicians around the world. Michael Palace has honed his skills as a musician, songwriter, and studio whiz with several different acts over the years, including, but not limited to KENT HILLI (Perfect Plan), FANS OF THE DARK, THE MURDER OF MY SWEET, HOUSTON, FIND ME (featuring Robbie LaBlanc), FIRST SIGNAL (featuring Harry Hess), and more.  Fans of Palace’s previous three releases, “Master Of The Universe”, “Binary Music”, and "Rock and Roll Radio", will have no shortage of joy upon hearing the band’s latest entry into Michael Palace’s impressive and growing catalog.  Tracklisting: 1. Fifteen Minutes 2. Westbound 3. Too Old For This 4. Money Can Kill 5. The Driver 6. Time Crisis 7. Facing The Music 8. World Gone Mad 9. Living The Life 10. Cancel The Flight 11. Loneliest Night Line-Up: Michael Palace – All Instruments, Songwriting, & Production
    • Opinions vary but some of these bands have several top albums.... Bon Jovi - Slippery for me Dio - Dream Evil for me Dan Reed Network - Slam for me Reckless Love - Animal attraction for me Dare - Blood From Stone for me...but a coin toss House of Lords - Demons Down for me Lillian Axe - Love & War for me
    • Wow, nothing you can find on their debut, 'Once Bitten' or 'Twice Shy?' Some absolutely killer melodic hard rock on all three albums. As good as or better than many of their peers for those three albums, imo. Especially the debut.  1. I actually agree. Don't know three songs, but I assume there's probably about three decent ones on there. Album just never clicked with me at all.  2. Agreed 3. Disagree 4. Don't know, not interested 5. That is absolutely ridiculous, lol. Horrendous album after three class albums. Can't even put an imo in there because I feel that strongly about it. 6. Neither of them > Either of them.  
    • I think I'd agree with those, but as noted Giant is a coin flip. I really love both albums, but overall for me, it has to be 'Blood' by a small margin. Agree Agree again Good call, defo agree with this. Thought it was their best by far, personally. What about- Takara (only just) Ten Unruly Child Von Groove  
    • Another very close call, but IMO the debut just pips it.
