Press release:

Legendary hard rockers Night Ranger are set to release their 12th studio album, "ATBPO” on August 6, 2021 via Frontiers Music Srl. "ATBPO" stands for And The Band Played On, an ode to making music during the covid era. It will be available on CD and Vinyl (several limited edition, color vinyl versions), as well as digitally across all streaming platforms.

The band began writing the album in early 2020, amid the onset of the global pandemic. After narrowing down the song selection and tightening them up to their well-known rock ‘n roll sound, the band hit the studio, although separately, due to the times we are in. Throughout "ATBPO", we hear Night Ranger continuing their hot streak that kicked off with 2011's "Somewhere In California". Ten years on, and two highly acclaimed albums later, "High Road" and "Don't Let Up", the band's latest studio work shows them still burning with that high octane hard rock energy they are known for. Night Ranger has always had a knack for killer melodies, intricate instrumentation, and captivating lyrics; "ATBPO" delivers all of that and more.

Having sold over 17 million albums worldwide, performed across more than 4000 stages, and enjoyed a radio audience that exceeds 1 billion, Night Ranger has both epitomized and transcended the arena rock sound and style well beyond that era. With multiple songs having a significant impact on popular culture, Night Ranger continues to grow their fanbase. The band is proof that powerful songs alongside incredibly talented musicians is the perfect formula for continued success. 

Night Ranger is Jack Blades (bass, vocals), Kelly Keagy (drums, vocals), Brad Gillis (lead & rhythm guitars), Eric Levy (keyboards), and Keri Kelli (lead & rhythm guitars).

I didn't care much for the first single but I dig this tune.  Cool groove and catchier than that first tune IMO.

Three pretty average songs, to be fair, but they always sound nice and it'll be worth a listen. Anyone still find themselves struggling to compute that a member of Big Bang Babies is now a member of Night Ranger?

Keri, the member you talking about, has been few bands e.g. Alice Cooper's touring band and Shameless

Bar a couple of fillers, a great album.  Sounds like NR to my ears

I was actually really disappointed with it. Can't be bothered to dig deep at the moment, but there was one riff-heavy tune that was pretty cool and the rest didn't do much for me at all.

I agree while it is better than expected , it is still rather average to my ears...
