This would be Awesome, probably number one for me when it comes to a reunion wish list, just above Skid Row.

I can't see it happening, but as he says in the video, " Never say never".

I seem to recall Andrew talking about a mythical third album sitting, gathering dust somewhere. 

Whatever the case, it's good to hear positive rumblings.

Keep it in the past.

No one wants to hear from Ted anymore and the 3rd album is a turd :)

Sentimentality aside, I think you're right.

The third album will never happen. Quite a few tracks for it have showed their faces on various band members solo albums over the years already. Plus the only way it would get released is if the record label either releases it themselves (highly unlikely) or gives up the masters and rights to the songs (unlikely) or the band completely re-records them (once again, unlikely).

Funnily enough I was reading up on this a few days ago.

Shit, that would be awesome! I still remember the first time I heard their music. My parents were driving me home, and "High Enough" began playing on the radio. I remember thinking "damn, this is the most epic power ballad I've ever heard!"

I read somewhere once they got paid millions by the record company NOT to release the third album. Must have had a great contract. But seems like bad business from the company end whichever way you look at it.

Only 4 tracks

4 out of 11 tracks is still quite a few. If it was one or two, yeah that would not be many, but four is 36% of the songs that were supposed to be on it.

They got the advance, recorded the album, then the label dumped it as it was shite. So they kept the advance.

It's on YouTube, not sure where it originally aired, very well produced concert footage of DY, when they were openers for Bad Company. I was at that concert, man, they totally blew away BadCo. By far, the best opening act I've ever seen. I would love to see them reunite. I think Tommy, Jack and Michael can "manage" Uncle Ted.....like they did back in the day.

    • "Cry Baby Cry" by Aldo Nova  
    • Ah sweet, I've been meaning to look into audio file editors myself since the tracks aren't split correctly on some of the music I purchased digitally. Which editors do you use?
    • I think my favorite song by them is either Love Kills or Ecstasy
    • I know, right? I loved the song until I got to the part with the noise. I guess the noise was supposed to replicate an effect on the record where the noise wouldn't stop until you picked the needle up. While kind of neat on the record, I think the other versions of the album would've been better off without it.
    • Some guy created a video on YouTube saying Chez Kane should be the new singer, but she has shot that down as well.
    • New album 'Kings Of The Revolution' out June 14th.
    • I really should use one of my editing software to have an MP3 without it. I separated the two versions of Gone again by PC69 years ago, but for some reason never edited this. Should be able to cut most of that 3 mins and fade the song out.
    • From Lions Pride Music: Nightfox emerged from the musical landscape of Trondheim, Norway, as a dynamic fusion of synthwave origins morphing seamlessly into the hard-hitting realms of 1980s-inspired hard rock. Founded in 2012, the band initially embarked on a journey rooted in synthwave aesthetics before embracing the electrifying energy of hard rock around 2017.   Driven by a relentless passion for the roaring riffs and blazing guitar solos reminiscent of the golden era of rock, Nightfox found its true voice within the spirited soundscape of 80s rock. What began as a synthwave experiment organically evolved into a full-fledged hard rock powerhouse, propelled by the inherent inclination of their compositions towards rock's anthemic essence.   The band's evolution culminated in the creation of a diverse repertoire of instrumentals, laying the foundation for their debut EP slated for release in 2018. However, personal circumstances necessitated a postponement, prompting a pivotal realization within the band that vocals would elevate their sonic tapestry to new heights.   Between 2019 and 2020, Nightfox embarked on an intensive songwriting and recording spree, breathing life into their compositions through the addition of poignant lyrics and powerful vocals delivered by a seasoned hired singer. As the album "White Cobra" began to take shape, the band opted to release their songs sequentially, with the debut single "Ride the Sky Tonight" igniting a spark that caught the attention of Lions Pride Music record label.   With Lions Pride Music extending a record deal, Nightfox found themselves propelled into the limelight, abandoning their original release strategy in favor of a cohesive album experience. In June 2021, the world bore witness to the electrifying debut of "White Cobra," a sonic odyssey that garnered critical acclaim, widespread airplay, and sold-out pressings within months of its release. Buoyed by the success of their debut, Nightfox set their sights on the creation of their sophomore album, "Chrome Tiger," a testament to their unwavering commitment to the legacy they've forged. Scheduled for a worldwide release on August 30, 2024, "Chrome Tiger" promises to further solidify Nightfox's position as torchbearers of the hard rock resurgence, captivating audiences with their infectious energy and unbridled passion for the genre.   Nighfox is: Vocals: Felipe Del Valle Briceño All Instruments & Programming: Erik Winther
