New video for 'Stop The World' coming this Monday.

From Frontiers:

Frontiers Music Srl is pleased to present the upcoming release of “Different Worlds”, the debut album from Skills, on May 13, 2022. Skills features the eye-popping line-up of vocalist Renan Zonta (Electric Mob), guitarist Brad Gillis (Night Ranger, Ozzy Osbourne), bassist Billy Sheehan (Mr. Big, The Winery Dogs, Sons Of Apollo), and drummer David Huff (GIANT). 

SKILLS: "an ability to do an activity or job well, especially because you have practiced it"

In the perfect extension of the meaning of the word, SKILLS is an amazing new band put together from the vision of Frontiers President and A&R director Serafino Perugino. Cocky name for a band? Sure, but when said band features the eye-popping line-up of vocalist Renan Zonta, guitarist Brad Gillis, bassist Billy Sheehan, and drummer David Huff, then a little bravado is probably in order. Skills brings together the worlds of old and new in hard rock for a stunning debut album. As is everyone who has heard him sing, Perugino was blown away by the abilities of Brazilian singer Renan Zonta upon first hearing him. Knowing how much Renan loves classic '80s hard rock, Perugino thought it would be cool to pair him with some monster players from that era. After sharing clips and music of Renan with some of the most outstanding musicians from the era, all of whom agreed that Renan’s talent is undeniable, a new musical beast was born with Brad Gillis, Billy Sheehan, and David Huff joining the fold.

In Skills, you have a singer whose vocal range is stunning and can mix the extension and the power of the likes of Glenn Hughes and Sammy Hagar with the expression of Steven Tyler and some David Coverdale thrown in. Along with one of the world's most renowned, prolific bass players, a hugely respected, talented, and stunning guitar player, and an absolutely killer drummer, Skills is a force to be reckoned with. “Different Worlds” is an album which will appeal to the discerning ears of fans of classic ‘80s hard rock/melodic rock.  

So go ahead and crank up the volume and enjoy the 'skills' on display from these talented musicians from different eras of killer rock ‘n roll on "Different Worlds"!

I saw this other day. Had no idea Billy and Brad even knew each other. Hate the name of the band, the song is okay, IMO. The lady in the video is nice though. Oh yeah, why must Brad ALWAYS do that creepy sneer into the camera thing. I hate when he does this, and he does it a lot.

I appreciate this. I had no idea what the word meant, but now that I know I still hate the name. 

Do people just hang around the Frontiers headquarters and wait for enough musicians to show up to form a band? These projects are so random.

No, it's Frontiers proprietary software - its called The Random Artist Project Generator, brought to you by the Italian Musicians' Retirement Fund.

What??

So you're saying that bit about the band being "put together from the vision of Frontiers President and A&R director Serafino Perugino" is bullshit?

But that eye-popping line-up, though.

Serafino Perugino needs to stop having these less than amazing visions about who he can round up to sing that one song that ADV keeps writing over and over.  I would say the band name is more dumb than cocky.  The way that write up reads you would think the band consisted of  James Hetfield, Slash, Flea and Tommy Lee.

Now that would be a kick-ass band!!!

Paul McCartney on bass/vocals, Pete Townsend on guitars, Mick Jagger on vocals, Brian Eno on keyboards, Bill Bruford on drums. Bandname = Skills.

    • I must say this is easily one, if not my favorite thread. Got to love these 1 offs and oddities. Wish I cold have them all. Once I get my collection out of jail I may copy you and do a PNW version as sharing is caring.   Thanks for the efforts in this thread Russ much appreciated.
    • I adore those first 2 Kix records honestly, their discography is almost in order of favorites, literally with Midnight at 3 and Blow at 4, Hotwire 5 (but could bundle with Show business, but those first 4, minus Don't Close Your Eyes (that one never did much for me, OK song, but quite skippable) are quintessential. 
    • As much as I love Kix, their first 2 albums are not great. And "In God We Trust" was TRASH.
    • Kix (duh). S/T, Cool Kids, Midnight Dynamite, Blow My Fuse, Hotwire. They really can do no wrong. Kings X (double duh). Into the Silent Planet, Gretchen Goes to Nebraska, Faith, Hope, Love, Self Titled, DogMan, Ear Candy, etc... Enuff Z Nuff has at least 10 albums of worthy material, starting with the S/T, then Animals w/Human Intelligent, easily to and through 10, but easily could include Welcome To Blue Island and album 12 ? (question mark). Stryper. Yellow and Black Attack, Soldiers Under Command, To Hell W/the Devil, In God We Trust, and the EPIC Against The Law. Butch Walker/Floyds Funk Revival/Marvelous 3. Sure its a blend of names but mostly the same guys and from Creamy, to the 3 Marvie records to Butch's Left of Self Centered is a good run, and you could include the 2 Southgang records as that's still Butch, Jay and Slug and depending on how much appreciation you have for Butch you can go to present as he is brilliant.   I also think Metal Church, The Dwarves, Warrior Soul and Nelson fit the bill as well.   I am sure there are many more.
    • Oh wow, that song is awful.  
    • The Carpenters never bugged me but... A few years ago, my wife and I went to see Bill Medley in concert.  Well, actually, we went to see Christopher Cross but Medley was the opening act.  Anyway I digress... Medley performed "I've Had the Time of My Life" as you might expect.  And it was wonderful.  Except...the female duet parts were sung by his daughter.  THAT was a bit creepy.   FWIW, Medley was incredible.  Puts on a wonderful show and sounds amazing.  Then again, so was Christopher Cross.  All in all, a tremendous concert.
    • That version........well, let's just say it's not good.
