STATEMENT FROM PRODUCER, DANIEL FLORES:
"FIND ME album nr 4 is done and on its way to the label then to the record press.
I really want to thank the band on this album:
Jonny Trobro, Michael Palace, Rolf Staffan Pilotti, the amazing voice and my friend Robbie LaBlanc and of course our silent but very vocal and important member Serafino Perugino for all the hard work on this release!
But there is one person I really want to thank and that one person is Alessandro Del Vecchio he is responsible for writing 10 amazing songs on this record. He will be featured heavily on my next work too... 🙂
Yes, he likes to play!!! and is pretty lucky too!
There is still one more BIG, bbbbBIG surprise on the album, featuring one of the best song writers and Keyboard players on earth atm, but I'll let the press team release have that one! 😉
Cheers guys! Now back to work on FIRST SIGNAL album nr 4. :-))))"

Can't say I'm thrilled that ADV is involved but whatever.  Just glad we're getting a new album - and that a new First Signal album is in the works.

Honestly, how many fucking songs can one man write, this is getting old already! For me, every album he writes has 2 to 3 good songs on it(I'm being generous), that's fucked up. Back in the day the best song writers didn't write whole albums, they wrote a few songs for an artists album. Desmond Child, Diane Warren, etc. He is not a very good song writer in my opinion. And his organ/keyboard sound on every bands album is so old!

I don't like his songwriting at all. It wants to be melodic and catchy but I can't remember one chorus though they all sound the same. Not hooky at all, just very forced. 

And I am annoyed that in every frontiers press release Serafino Perugino is mentioned. No other label mentions it's president that often.

Getting a bit sick of Frontiers. They often churn out a dozen albums in a row with the same people on them or writing them under different band names. What, do they have quotas on how many albums they have to release each month? Do they think they are the new Motown? Only difference is Motown had quality control and released singles, not albums.

I have to respect for Frontiers as a label because they are helping keep our music type alive and have been for a while,so cudos for that, but they don't have to have their people with their hands all over every project,just take a step back every so often.

Exactly!    I really do love Frontiers and what they have done for our genre,  but ADV is way to involved in just about EVERY album.

Well I feel bad for my rant now. But  I do buy a lot of Frontiers product. So I feel I am supporting them anyway 😬

Just the higher-ups massaging their own egos. I agree, it's pretty cringey.

I don't feel quite as strongly as the rest of you.  This is inoffensive pablum, a throwaway song that doesn't change my interest in the upcoming album.  But, yeah, definitely not a Christmas classic.

The problem is the vast majority of ADV projects have like 7-8 songs like this per release. Albums shouldn't consist entirely of inoffensive pablum or throwaway songs.

Still holding out hope that the rest of the album will be good but given the recent history of the songwriter(s), I'm not excited about it at all.

The Album Killer resembles that remark!

New album 'Lightning In A Bottle' out March 11.

From Frontiers:

Frontiers Music Srl is thrilled to announce a fourth album, "Lightning In A Bottle" from the popular melodic rock group FIND ME. Vocalist Robbie LaBlanc and drummer/producer Daniel Flores will release their new album on March 11, 2022. 

A delightful and massive melodic rock album, "Lightning In A Bottle" is chock full of mighty anthemic AOR songs featuring Robbie’s soaring vocals backed by amazing performances from Flores and his band. Sonically, this album touches on both the classic Melodic Rock/AOR style, while also showing influences from the new guard of the genre.  

Find Me is an ongoing collaboration between Swedish musician, songwriter, and producer Daniel Flores (The Murder Of My Sweet) and singer Robbie LaBlanc (Blanc Faces, ex-Fury) that was put together by Frontiers President, Serafino Perugino with a vision to unleash another AOR behemoth. Their partnership has yielded three absolute melodic rock gems in a row and "Lightning In A Bottle" will certainly be no exception.

"I really want to thank the band on this album, Jonny Trobro, Michael Palace (guitar), Rolf Staffan Pilotti, and the amazing voice, my friend, Robbie LaBlanc and, of course, our silent, but very vocal and important member, Serafino Perugino, for all the hard work on this release! But there is one person I really want to thank and that is Alessandro Del Vecchio, who is responsible for writing 10 amazing songs on this record. He will be featured heavily on my next work too. Yes, he likes to play!!! And is pretty lucky too! There is still one more BIG, BBBBBBBIG surprise on the album, featuring one of the best songwriters and keyboard players on earth at the moment, but I'll let the press team have that one..." says Daniel Flores.

The aforementioned special guest is Vince DiCola who plays keyboards on a cover of 'Far From Over', a song by Frank Stallone from the "Staying Alive" soundtrack. Vince is actually a co-writer of the original along with Stallone.

Find Me's "Lightning In A Bottle" will no doubt be another unmissable album from Frontiers for the Melodic Rock/AOR crowd!

Tracks:

"Lightning In A Bottle" Tracklisting:

1. Survive

2. Far From Over (Feat. Vince Di Cola)

That song is OK. A step up from the Christmas one but would have been one of the weaker cuts on any of the first three Find Me albums.

I'm guessing the usual strong vocal performance from Robbie will be what carries this album if it's any good.

Again they praise Perugino in the press release (they all sound the same, even the quotes...) and Del Vecchio picked out 10 more out of his 17.487 demos... I can't hear it anymore.

 

BUT I really like the song somehow:blink: Must be the first ADV song that really catches me.

 

Has he always written the songs for Find me or who else did that before him?

    • Releases July 26. $47.08 at ImportCDs: https://www.importcds.com/dynamite-china-years-complete-recordings-1988-1993/5013929929920 8CD complete collection of recordings released by China Records. Featuring what most consider to be the classic line-up of The Dogs D'Amour; Jo 'Dog' Almeida on guitar, Steve James on bass, the onomatopoeic Bam on drums, and of course fronted by songwriter and singer, the inimitable Tyla. Propelled by the albums' three singles 'The Kid from Kensington', 'I Don't Want You to Go' and 'How Come It Never Rains' edging their way up the charts, when The Dogs D'Amour's genre-defining 1988 "debut" 'In The Dynamite Jet Saloon' (CD2) was released in 1988, it must have looked like the band was an overnight sensation. But this couldn't have been further from the truth. The Dogs D'Amour originally formed in 1983, and had already recorded two previous "debut" albums. First was 1984's now highly collectable 'The State We're In', for Finnish label Kumibeat. Further recordings were made in 1985 and 1986 for Watanabe Records in Japan, and it's the latter where this collection kicks off. 'The (Un)Authorised Bootleg Album' (CD1) was the record originally intended for Japan. The second set in this collection is the aforementioned In 'The Dynamite Jet Saloon' (CD2), bursting with classics. A highly prolific band in their earliest days, 'Errol Flynn' (re-titled 'King Of The Thieves' in the States) (CD3) was released in 1989 as was the extended mini-album, 'A Graveyard Of Empty Bottles Vol. 1' (CD4), a collection of acoustic songs that reached the UK Top 20. 1990 saw the release of '... Straight?!!' (CD5) featuring the singles 'Victims of Success', 'Empty World' and 'Back On The Juice'. Unfortunately, and in true rock 'n' roll tradition, the band split up on stage in Los Angeles in 1991. Thankfully the band regrouped for the self-explanatory '... More Unchartered Heights Of Disgrace' (CD6) in 1993. This eight CD collection is completed with no less than two discs of rarities, live tracks and B-sides with 'Singles, B-Sides & Rarities' (CD7) and 'Even More Singles, B-Sides & Rarities' (CD8), making this the most complete and comprehensive collection of the band's recordings for China.   - Disc 1 - 1 Firework Girl 2 Chains 3 Gold 4 Pourin' Out My Heart 5 Wait Until I'm Dead 6 How Do You Fall in Love Again? 7 Kiss This Joint 8 Heroine 9 Tales of Destruction 10 Dynamite Jet Saloon 11 Swingin' the Bottle - Disc 2 - 1 Debauchery 2 I Don't Want You to Go 3 How Come It Never Rains 4 Last Bandit 5 Medicine Man 6 Gonna Get It Right 7 Everything I Want 8 Heartbreak 9 Billy Two Rivers 10 Wait Until I'm Dead 11 Sometimes 12 The Kid from Kensington 13 The State I'm in - Disc 3 - 1 Drunk Like Me 2 Goddess from the Gutter 3 Hurricane 4 Satellite Kid 5 Errol Flynn 6 Planetary Pied Piper 7 Princess Valium 8 Dogs Hair 9 Trail of Tears 10 Ballad of Jack 11 The Prettiest Girl in the World 12 The Girl Behind the Glass 13 Things Seem to Go Wrong 14 Oooh!
