Harem Scarem 13

Frontiers Music Srl is pleased to announce the release dates set for the anticipated new album from Canadian rockers HAREM SCAREM entitled “13” on December 5th in Europe an and in North America on December 9th.


Coming back - after a long hiatus – “Thirteen” is, arguably, the band’s 13th original studio album, a release that was decided by after the band's return in 2013 with the release of "Mood Swings II": the re-recorded version of their career defining album "Mood Swings", originally released in 1993. Harem Scarem embarked on an international tour and reconnected with all the fans. They were actually very pleasantly surprised about the level of interest in the band and decided to move forward.


"It’s been 6 years since our last studio album and we’re feeling rejuvenated and couldn’t be more excited about the new tunes!" tells singer Harry Hess and with juices of inspiration flowing it could not have been easier to give birth to a strong musical statement such as "Thirteen".

The new album encompasses everything that the fans would expect from Harem Scarem: very addictive guitar riffs and choruses from heaven with big over the top hooks. A definite and true return to the sound that put Harem Scarem on the map over 20 years ago.

With 12 top 40 hits around the world and sales well over a million records in 43 countries, 2015 will see the Harem Scarem touring the world in support of their 13th studio album “Thirteen“!

You can check Harem Scarem’s new songs via this Youtube trailer: http://youtu.be/xFlWfBfAfkM

“Thirteen” tracklisting includes:
Garden of Eden; Live It; Early Warning Signs; The Midnight Hours; Whatever It Takes; Saints and Sinners; All I Need; Troubled Times; Never Say Never; Stardust; Garden of Eden (Acoustic Version – bonus track)

Crazy Lixx Coming Soon! 

Frontiers Music Srl is pleased to announce the release of the hotly anticipated fourth studio album from CRAZY LIXX. The self-titled album will be released on November 7th in Europe and November 11th in North America.

Just like every Rock band does at some point in their career, CRAZY LIXX thought it was the right time to release their Self-Titled album: the kind of album that really does the band’s name justice and that shows everyone what the band and their music is really all about. This is that album for Sweden’s CRAZY LIXX!


Says lead singer and producer Danny Rexon, “We were discussing possible titles for the album and we didn’t really feel like any of the suggestions were quite right. Then I came up with the idea of a making it a self-titled album and we all agreed this was the right time for one. You know, bearing the very name of the band, a self-titled album does have a lot to live up to, but we all felt that this album has what it takes to represent the band as a whole, both in terms of the songs, the sound and the performance.”

With their new album, CRAZY LIXX show their growth as a band by sinking their teeth into 11 anthemic rock songs that will satisfy both the hardcore Lixx fans, as well as all fans of melodic hard rock and hair metal in general. By combining the strategies of recording and producing the album themselves along with utilizing the mixing skills of the great Chris Laney, the band has once again returned to the bombastic sound of CRAZY LIXX’s earlier work while at the same time adding the improved song-writing and musicianship of today’s CRAZY LIXX.

“We learnt a lot through the years, especially when it comes to the recording process and we put all that knowledge and experience to use on this album. We used many different studio settings to record different parts of the album and did not rush the recording, but made sure everything was as good as it could get. At the same time we did not want to be too nitpicking with details, I mean we’re still in the business of rock n’ roll, right?”, adds guitarist and co-producer of the album Andy Zata.

In addition to returning to the old CRAZY LIXX sound, the band has also re-recorded fan favorite “Heroes are Forever” which was originally on the band’s first, now out of print album. “It’s this one song, that was our first single back in around 2006, that we’ve played on almost every live show we’ve done since then, but when we started to think about it, it was a song that a lot of our fans had no chance to ever listen to. The first album, ‘Loud Minority’, was released on a minor independent label, in a limited printing which has long since sold out, and it isn’t available digitally either. Still we felt that the track was one of those songs that had a really fundamental CRAZY LIXX vibe to it, so we decided to record it again and give the fans a nice treat. If you ask me, it came out way better this second time around,” says drummer Joél Cirera.

Newest and youngest member, bassist Jens Sjöholm adds: “Being my first album release with Crazy Lixx I don’t really have any special expectations, but hearing the final result and seeing how fired up the guys are about it makes me look forward to seeing the reactions of the fans and media.”


With the addition of Jens Sjöholm and the return of original drummer Joél Cirera, CRAZY LIXX Mk III proved to be the best lineup to date, both in concert and on record. “I think the fans will really enjoy what we’ve got in store for them with this album. Killer songs, great sound and memorable hooks combined with a bit of the twin guitar action and riff-based approach that we added to the sound on our last album,” says guitarist Edd Liam.

“It’s really a bit of a do or die, no guts, no glory situation – after all, you only get one chance to do a self titled album, so make sure you do it good,” concludes Danny Rexon.

“Crazy Lixx” tracklisting: Hell Raising Women; Sound Of The Loud Minority; Outlaw; Girls Of The 80’s; I Missed The Mark; All Looks, No Hooks; Ain’t No Rest In Rock N’ Roll; Call To Action; Heroes Are Forever; Psycho City; Wrecking Ball Crew.

Bailey - Long Way Down

Frontiers Music srl set to release debut album from Three Lions frontman Bailey, entitled “Long Way Down”

Frontiers Music Srl is pleased to announce the release of the debut album from Bailey entitled “Long Way Down” on December 5th in Europe and December 9th in North America.


BAILEY is the new solo project masterminded by THREE LIONS frontman Nigel Bailey. Although a relatively new name on the scene, Nigel has a vast experience as both a songwriter and performer. His deal with Frontiers served to bring to light his shining talent both as a powerful vocalist and also as a songwriter. Brand new compositions along with some material written over the years have been combined to complete an exciting solo debut. “I wrote the bulk of the album songs between 2011 and mid 2012” says Nigel. “The plan was to write songs with no particular influences in mind. I have always loved rock music and wrote songs as they came to me. I didn’t have a particular style in mind which is reflected in the various styles on the record.”


With some similarities to THREE LIONS in terms of influences, BAILEY is slightly heavier and more varied in its approach whilst still maintaining the edge and the trademark melodies of Classic British Hard Rock tradition. “If pushed, I would say that In The Name Of The King, Long Way Down and Stay are my personal favourites and show the variety in my writing and vocal style” tells Nigel. This record will be a surprise for many and an absolute must for all British Melodic Hard Rock fans!

You can have a glimpse of BAILEY’s debut album by viewing the EPK via this link: youtu.be/DIW83Q5w71w

BAILEY will also have a debut live FREE show on December 4th at The Coniston live music venue in Bradford, UK. Nigel will be performing songs from the album as well as some surprises along with his bandmates and special friends!

“Long Way Down” tracklisting includes: Feed The Flames; In The Name Of The King; Dirty Little Secret; Bad Reputation; Stay; Somewhere In Oslo; Long Way Down; Spend The Night; Love Falls Down; Ticket To Yesterday; Dirty Angel.

Steamhammer / SPV - press release - Nitrogods to release new video

German no bullshit Rock n Rollers NITROGODS are releasing a brand new video for the title track of the upcoming album.  "Rats and Rumours" can be seen here: http://youtu.be/TgZnd2CJOz0


October 20, 2014 will see the release of the second NITROGODS album. The new album "Rats and Rumours" will be available in 3 different configurations: + Jewelcase CD with 13 tracks + LTD. edition digipak CD with 15 tracks (1 live song + 1 acoustic version as bonus) This format will also contain a DVD with a full live show of the band (duration ca. 45 minutes) + LTD. edition vinyl version, 180 gr., gatefold sleeve, double sided poster includes the 15 track CD version of the album!

 

INFO:

In times of increasing digital anonymity and alleged germfree perfection, the rock’n’roll trio Nitrogods from Hanover and Stuttgart has opted for the second time in succession for a more arduous but in the long term artistically more satisfying path. Mind you, their songs don’t fulfil such criteria as absolute tonal purity, musical integrity and clinical sterility – quite the opposite: their second studio recording Rats And Rumours was consciously recorded in a studio featuring analogue technology, in which phenomena such as having to change reels and regularly clean recording heads are part and parcel of the day-to-day routine: “That’s first and foremost a question of attitude and of course fun, because we’re die-hard vintage fans and really enjoyed every single second we spent recording on a venerable 24-track recorder,” guitarist Henny Wolter explains. “Of course this kind of production is much more complex and laborious because you can’t just move whole passages around using the copy & paste function, you really have to be able to play the whole song. Every time you mess up, you have to start all over again. And that’s what makes this kind of production such an exciting challenge, and what you get at the end of the day is real rock’n’roll sound.”

 

No doubt about it: the recording procedure and band philosophy on Rats And Rumours suit Nitrogods down to a tee. Henny Wolter, vocalist/bassist Oimel Larcher and drummer Klaus Sperling recorded more than a dozen new songs at the Echolane Studios in Bergen-Hohne, some of which their fans already know from their gigs. Wolter: “We started writing new material directly after the release of our debut album two and a half years ago. That’s why we’ve been able to put numbers such as ‘Back Home’, ‘Nitrogods’ and ‘Whiskey Supernova’ through their paces in front of an audience.” He is referring to a total of 13 tracks which continue the stylistic directives of Nitrogods’ debut album, but sound much more diverse and audibly more multi-layered. The song ‘Automobile’, for example, explores the subset of metal and rockabilly even more extensively, and ‘Nitrogods’ is also marked by that raw rock’n’rockabilly feel. Wolter refers to ‘Ramblin’ Broke’ as a “blues escapee”: “The song has basically nothing to do with heavy metal but could easily have been recorded by John Fogerty or Creedence Clearwater Revival.”

 

THREE MEN ARE ENOUGH

Nitrogods are: Henny Wolter (guitar, vocals) - Claus 'Oimel' Larcher (Bass, main vocals) - Klaus Sperling (Drums)

Hell In The Club - Devil On My Shoulder

Hell In The Club have signed a deal with Scarlet Records for the release of their new album ‘Devil On My Shoulder’. The band includes members of acclaimed acts such as Elvenking, Death SS and Secret Sphere, but their music stands out as something totally different: they mix classic hard rock and modern sounds, heavy metal and party songs, fifties rock’n’roll and anything in between. ‘Devil On My Shoulder’ is a powerful, exciting album that displays strong songwriting capabilities, top notch musicianship and meaningful lyrics (one song is based on Daniel Pennac’s ‘La Saga Malausséne), in the vein of the great heavy/rock albums of our times. ‘Devil On My Shoulder’ was produced by Simone Mularoni (DGM, Empyrios) at Domination Studios in San Marino, Italy. 

 

Triosphere: 'The Heart Of The Matter' coming in November!

Norway’s best female-fronted metal band, TRIOSPHERE, has completed work on their new album. Almost four and a half years after “The Road Less Travelled” and following European tours with Kamelot, Sonata Arctica and Crimson Glory, TRIOSPHERE’s highly-anticipated new album “The Heart Of The Matter” will finally be released on November 7th.

RATED X RELEASES FIRST VIDEO: THIS IS WHO I AM

Debut Album From New All Star Hard Rock Band With Vocalist Joe Lynn Turner; Drummer Carmine Appice;

Bassist Tony Franklin and Guitarist Karl Cochran Due For Release November 10th on Frontiers Music Srl.

 

Frontiers Music Srl, the Italian-based label known for embracing new music from legendary Rock artists, has released the first video by its newest acclaimed band: RATED X. Entitled “This Is Who I Am,” the song is taken from the band’s self-titled debut set for release in the EU on November 7th and in North America on November 10th.

 

Fans who pre-order the album on iTunes here: http://geni.us/LDm, will receive an instant download of the song or it can be purchased as a digital single. RATED X was formed at the suggestion of, and under the guidance of Frontiers’ President Serafino Perugino, and consists of singer Joe Lynn Turner, the former lead vocalist for both Rainbow and Deep Purple and a solo artist in his own right; drum legend Carmine Appice, (Vanilla Fudge, Cactus, Ozzy Osbourne, Rod Stewart, Blue Murder, King Kobra and others); Appice’s former Blue Murder band-mate and bassist, Tony Franklin (best known for his work with The Firm, Jimmy Page, Paul Rodgers, David Gilmour, Kate Bush, and Whitesnake); and long-time Turner collaborator and former member of Ace Frehley’s band, guitarist Karl Cochran. Frontiers in-house producer, Alessandro del Vecchio, not only handled studio production but added keyboards on several tracks. Pat Regan (Mr. Big, Deep Purple, Gotthard, Kiss, Doro) mixed the album.

 

The band’s debut album, entitled Rated X, features all new songs built upon a classic Hard Rock foundation, with a distinctly contemporary edge. “This Is Who I Am,” with its solid bottom, soaring guitar riffs driven by Turner’s compelling vocals, is sure to please hard rock fans around the world.

 

Says Joe Lynn Turner: “It’s about a personal experience of mine and I think it relates to everyone. We all want to shine as individuals. Too many people were judging me and telling me how to look and how to act; basically it’s about rebellion.” “It has a really cool groove,” says Carmine Appice. “I love the hook and I love what it is saying.” Much of the album was recorded in different cities, using current recording technology, however, it never strays from a solid band sound. “The songs will stand by themselves,” says Karl Cochran.” They are strong songs.”

 

Adds Tony Franklin about the project: “There is a lot of talent in this band and we respect each other. Some of us in this band have known each other for 20 to 30 years. So, it didn’t feel like something that had just been put together randomly. It feels real.”

Heart  - Heart & Friends

Heart’s “Heart & Friends: Home for the Holidays” out in November on Frontiers

Sammy Hagar, Pat Monahan, Shawn Colvin and Richard Marx join heart for once-in-a-lifetime collaborations

HEART’s “Heart & Friends – Home for the Holidays” will be released as CD/DVD, Blu Ray and digital download on November 7th in Europe and November 10th in North America, it was announced today by Frontiers Music SRL.


Last December, HEART’s Ann and Nancy Wilson returned to their hometown of Seattle to stage a celebration of the season, gathering a few of their friends to join them in singing holiday classics, personal favorites and some of their own hits. Special guests Shawn Colvin, Sammy Hagar, Richard Marx and Pat Monahan from Train joined HEART for this unique concert which was taped on December 12th 2013 at the Benaroya Symphony Concert Hall in Seattle. The Wilson sisters performed an array of holiday songs originally written by Joni Mitchell, Harry Nilsson, Bob Dylan and Sammy Hagar in their Christmas set as well as some of HEART’s favorite songs. Colvin, Hagar, Marx and Monahan provided additional vocals on the tunes and/or sing duets with HEART.

“We had a great time putting on this show with special friends for the holidays. Warm moments and great music from all... and some saucy little elves too,” said Ann Wilson. “We have always held the holidays up as a wonderful whimsical time of year and celebrating it in our beloved home town with friends, songs and family was extremely magical,” added Nancy Wilson.


“Heart & Friends: Home For The Holidays” ended a prolific and award-winning year in 2013 for HEART, who have been enjoying a resurgence of popularity since 2010′s “Red Velvet Car”, which became the group’s first Top 10 album in 20 years. Many successful live shows and tours (including a 2011 tour with Def Leppard, and their 2013 “Heartbreaker” tour) have occurred with 2012 seeing the release of “Strange Euphoria”, a definitive career-spanning box set; the arrival of “Kicking and Dreaming: A Story of Heart, Soul, and Rock and Roll”, a best-selling autobiography; the announcement of Ann and Nancy Wilson’s HEART star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and the release of Fanatic, HEART’s 14th studio album.

Earlier this year, HEART released “Fanatic Live From Caesars Colosseum” on Frontiers Music SRL. In addition to their star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame HEART was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame last April.
