WETTON / DOWNES “Icon”, the album that marked the reunion between Geoff Downes and John Wetton.

This edition will see the addition of 5 bonus tracks: Heat of the Moment 05; Paradox/ Let Me Go (different version); The Smile Has Left Your Eyes 05; In The End (different version); There In Your Bed (which originally appeared on the “Heat of the Moment 05” EP).

SEVENTH KEY “The Raging Fire”, the band’s second album. From a studio project SEVENTH KEY evolved in a more stable unit which saw Greer and Slamer joined by Terry Brock and Jamie Thompson. Defined as “A brilliant album!” by Melodicrock.com at the time of the release, this reissue comes with one bonus track “Love Train”. Details and samples available on www.frontiers.it/album/4743/

ALLEN / LANDE
Frontiers Records informs that the release of ALLEN / LANDE third album “The Showdown”, originally planned for September, is postponed to November 2010. We apologize with the fans for the unexpected delay.
Some very positive press results are blessing the return of ex HAREM SCAREM singer Harry Hess fronting FIRST SIGNAL, the new project produced by Dennis Ward of PINK CREAM 69. Some of the most remarkable ones include:
“FIRST SIGNAL is a well-constructed and melodic-as-hell album that welcomes Harry Hess and melodic rock fans with open arms.” Rockeyez
“If you dig Melodic Rock and the old Harem Scarem stuff then this album is something you will enjoy.” Welovemetal.com
“For die hard fans of Harem Scarem is First Signal featuring Harry Hess a good news show, its finger liking good” Furyrocks.com
“Simply put, First Signal is one of the contenders for being one of the best melodic rock albums of 2010”. Ytsejam.com

THE MURDER OF MY SWEET
The very well known Japanese actor/singer Anna Tsuchiya will use the original THE MURDER OF MY SWEET song “Follow The Rain” (titled “Shout In The Rain” in her version) as the lead off single from her third album released in Japan on Avex. The song in this new version can be enjoyed in this attractive videoclip
It’s very rare that a Japanese artist decides to cut a single with an already available song – but Avex and Anna T loved the track very much and the band feels honoured by their choice. THE MURDER OF MY SWEET are scheduled to appear live at the forthcoming Raismes Festival in France on September 11th.
