STATION Debut New Song 'A Matter Of Time'; Album Out Nov 1

 
New York-based melodic rock band Station will independently release its third studio album, Stained Glass, on Station Music on Nov. 1.
The unsigned band — comprising singer Patrick Kearney, guitarist/keyboardist Chris Lane, bassist Emi Asta and drummer Tony Baptist — saw its sophomore album, More Than the Moon, land on Billboard’s Heatseekers Albums chart and has opened for the likes of Pat Benatar, Poison’s Bret Michaels, Motley Crue’s Vince Neil and Stryper.
Lead single “A Matter of Time” deals with romanticizing goals in life, such as meeting the right person at the right time. Musically, it has a “bluesy rock aesthetic,” according to Kearney. And as the first track on the album, he sees it as a gateway song for listeners who may not be familiar with Station.
“It’s a great kickoff point because it’s very middle of the road in terms of our sound,” he says. “Anyone listening to it for the first time will be like, ‘Okay, I get it — this is a rock band that’s rockin’.”
As for the song’s meaning, he adds, “It’s about not being able to recognize authenticity because you have had a fantasy for so long. In the video [for the song], we personified the fantasy as this really attractive girl, something that you chased after, but you romanticized it. So when reality kicks in, it’s kind of like, ‘Wait a minute, I can’t tell if this is real or not.’ ”

ABOUT STATION:
Rock is Dead. It's a cliche that's been around since before the days of disco, and gets proven wrong again and again. The way New York quartet STATION see it, melodic hard rock has never died, and they're not looking to save it, just drag it back to the forefront where it belongs. Driving hooks, choruses you'll be singing long after hearing them and a work ethic as strong as their riffs have been the band's calling card since their formation in 2011.
 
Co-founded by guitarist Chris Lane and vocalist Patrick Kearney, STATION are based in New York City, but have toured the country, having played Rocklahoma three times, as well as the M3 Festival, Musikfest and hundreds of shows to the Mississippi and beyond. The band, which also includes Emi Asta and Tony Baptist, have shared the stage with the likes of Y&T, Pat Benatar, Lynch Mob, and Dio's Disciples while making fans wherever they play courtesy of their high-energy stage show and the music they write.

Finally proof that not all new artists playing classic 80s hard rock come from Sweden! The USA used to be the hotbed of the genre, delivering platinum selling band after band. Then it all dried up and the great Scandi take-over began.
But New York rockers Station won’t be denied their place in history!
This high energy outfit deliver their debut album in 2015, boasting a sound born out of 80s American rock – think Sunset Strip.
In fact, this album could be one of those gems, previously lost in a vault somewhere for 20 years, but no, it’s all new and sounds great.
Better even that the guys nail some really catchy tunes.
 
I Don’t Want To Know Your Name is a perfect anthemic Winger/Slaughter screamer to open the album; Everything is deep in harmonies and a catchy chorus and big riffs; Dressed To Kill actually has a Kiss vibe to it despite no direct connection to the title; its high energy, face paced, hard rocking fun.
The tempo stops briefly for one of the great anthemic ballads of recent years. Are You Sleeping Alone is a masterpiece for fans of the high-sentiment 80s rock genre.
The brilliant, very melodic and somewhat moody True Believer kicks the pace into the highest gear yet; With Me Tonight is another mid-tempo moody number; More Than Enough reminds me of the Bulletboys; Waiting For You is another solid ballad; Never Say Never takes the high notes over the top and I Can’t Live Without You is the most circumspect numbers included here.

There are 15 tracks included – great value for money – but this is also the one downside to the album. It’s pretty long already with most tracks in the 4 and 5 minute range, so to have 15 included for 71 minutes of music is probably 3 tracks too many. I’d have preferred this to be a 55 minute album and be left wanting more.
But, you can always skip or edit a playlist to your liking and the basic fact is there are at least 10 cracking hard rock tunes on here that warrant high praise and have been on high rotation with me for some time now.
