EUROPE Announce “Walk The Earth” Album, out October 20, 2017

July 29th, 2017
by EvilG
EUROPE "Walk The Earth"

EUROPE “Walk The Earth”

EUROPE are pleased to announce the release of a new studio album, Walk The Earth, out October 20, 2017.

If EUROPE’s 2015 album, War Of Kings, was the album that made the rock world realize what a formidable act EUROPE had become, then Walk The Earth is the album that is set to establish the band as one of the most exciting contemporary rock acts of current times.

The new album Walk The Earth will feature original artwork by famed Los Angeles artist Mike Sportes of Filth Mart.

“We were in the studio a few days into recording and Dave (Cobb, Producer) comes in wearing this very cool t-shirt with one of Mike’s designs on it. Immediately, we knew we had to check Mike’s other work and have him come up with an exclusive design for us based on the vibe of the album. We are very proud to have his amazing artwork as the Walk The Earth album cover!’ – Joey Tempest on the appointment of Mike Sportes to do the cover.

Walk The Earth track listing:
1. Walk The Earth
2. The Siege
3. Kingdom United
4. Pictures
5. Election Day
6. Wolves
7. GTO
8. Haze
9. Whenever You’re Ready
10. Turn To Dust

From the anthemic sound of the opening track, “Walk The Earth”, to the heavy vibe that is “Haze”, from the instant melody of “Election Day”, to the lyrical content of “Kingdom United”, Walk The Earth is the album that should see EUROPE rightly acclaimed as a band at the height of their powers. The wonderful melodies and depth of Joey Tempest’s vocals along with a powerhouse rhythm section and the guitar playing of John Norum, one of the great underrated guitarists. Norum’s guitar playing shines across the record. This is an album that is big in its scope and sound. Much like previous album War Of Kings, Walk The Earth is an album that has instant appeal but is also an album that needs to be lived with, in order to uncover its depth. The album was recorded at famed Abbey Road Studios in London with Grammy winning producer Dave Cobb (Rival Sons, Shooter Jennings, Jason Isbell, Chris Stapleton).

Late 2016 saw EUROPE perform a series of “The Final Countdown Anniversary Shows” across Europe – culminating in a show at The Roundhouse in London. The show has been immortalized in a July 2017 DVD release, The Final Countdown 30th Anniversary Show – Live at the Roundhouse. Preceding the landmark event, fans were also treated to a live performance of EUROPE’s last album, 2015’s War of Kings, a release which re-established EUROPE as one of the top rock bands in the world.

Since forming in 1979, EUROPE have sold over 25 million albums, toured across the world and become one of the greats of modern rock music. The bands all conquering The Final Countdown album has alone sold over 15 million copies worldwide and the single of the same name was #1 in 25 countries.

EUROPE will tour with Deep Purple in late 2017. Full dates are below:

Fri 17th Nov 2017 Barclaycard Arena, Birmingham UK
Sat 18th Nov Manchester Arena, Manchester UK
Mon 20th Nov Motorpoint Arena, Cardiff UK
Wed 22nd Nov The SSE Hydro, Glasgow UK
Thurs 23rd Nov The o2 Arena, London UK

For tickets see http://europetheband.com.

European tour dates for November and December will be announced imminently.

SWEET & LYNCH To Release “Unified” November 10th

July 28th, 2017
by Celtic Bob

 

Frontiers Music Srl is pleased to announce the release of the second album from SWEET & LYNCH, “Unified”. The highly anticipated follow up to the band’s Billboard charting debut, “Only to Rise” will be available on November 10th. Today, the first single,”Promised Land” from the album can be heard HERE.

Order the album here: http://radi.al/Unified or at the links below
Frontiers: http://www.frontiers.shop
Amazon: http://radi.al/UnifiedAmazon
iTunes: http://radi.al/UnifiediTunes
Google Play: http://radi.al/UnifiedGooglePlay

All digital pre-orders come with an instant download of “Promised Land.”

Follow the band on Spotify: http://radi.al/UnifiedSpotify to be alerted when the album is released and to add “Promised Land” to your favorite playlists:

SWEET & LYNCH is centered around the talents of guitarist/vocalist Michael Sweet of heavy metal stalwarts STRYPER (ex-BOSTON) and iconic guitarist George Lynch (LYNCH MOB, KXM, ex-DOKKEN) along with bassist James Lomenzo (ex MEGADETH, WHITE LION, BLACK LABEL SOCIETY) and drummer Brian Tichy (The Dead Daisies, ex-WHITESNAKE). In addition to his vocal and guitar work, Michael Sweet handled all of the production duties on “Unified”

“George and I couldn’t be more excited about this album! We’ve worked very hard to bring you the best of both worlds – a throw back of the chart topping Stryper/Dokken days yet with a modern production that fits right in with anything out there now in the rock world today. We couldn’t be more proud than to be working with Brian Tichy and James LoMenzo again as they are the best rhythm section you’ll ever hear. If you liked SWEET & LYNCH I, you’re going to love ‘Unified’,” says Michael Sweet of the new album.

The combination of Sweet’s powerful, high-octane vocals, Lynch’s immediately recognizable guitar work, and Lomenzo and Tichy’s propulsive rhythm section make for an amazing musical combination. The album gives both Sweet and Lynch the opportunity to operate outside of the boundaries of their most well known work and really stretch their wings. Pummeling, traditional heavy metal combines with hook-laden melodic rock and traditional hard rock for a recipe that will satisfy the hungriest of rock fans!

“Unified” is an absolute must hear for fans of all of Michael Sweet and George Lynch’s previous work and of course for those who enjoyed the band’s excellent debut album!


Track Listing:
1. Promised Land
2. Walk
3. Afterlife
4. Make Your Mark
5. Tried & True
6. Unified
7. Find Your Way
8. Heart Of Fire
9. Bridge Of Broken Lies
10. Better Man
11. Live To Die

SWEET & LYNCH Lineup:
Michael Sweet – Lead Vocals, Guitars
George Lynch – Lead Guitars
James Lomenzo – Bass Guitar
Brian Tichy – Drums

PAGAN ALTAR To Release “The Room of Shadows”

July 25th, 2017
by Celtic Bob

Pagan Altar are one of the most complete and mystical bands to have emerged from the NWOBHM movement. Mixing 70’s proto-doom elements with English folk, hard rock and heavy metal, they wrote some of the most grandiose songs of the genre on the sinister “Volume 1” – and more recently, “Lords of Hypocrisy” and “Mythical and Magical” – influencing a whole generation of doom-obsessed fanatics.

Originally written thirteen years ago, “The Room of Shadows” has gone through various shapes until finally being completed two years after the tragic passing of their beloved frontman Terry Jones, who had been bravely battling cancer for a year prior. This album is not only Pagan Altar’s last record, it also Terry’s very last vocal performance, and picks up where Mythical and Magical left. Admirers of their previous works will be pleased to hear that this album is just as timeless, with its epic hard rocking riffs and enchanting, poetic macabre lyrics of olde. And thus closes the Pagan Altar legacy; which will be with us after forever…

New PRONG Out This Friday

July 25th, 2017
by Celtic Bob

The new PRONG-Album “Zero Days” is another monster of an album, another step towards refining the perfect PRONG-Sound and another album that lacks any filler or lacklustre moment.

Musically, it hits home from the first bars of the mighty opener “However It May End” to the last bars of the albums closing track “Wasting Of The Dawn”. Every track is it’s own emotional roller-coaster ride, chock-full of massive riffage, ironclad grooves and topped off by Victor’s ever-improving vocal delivery.

“Zero Days” was once again produced by Tommy Victor, with trusted collaborator Chris Collier as co-producer and engineer.
