URIAH HEEP RETURN WITH OUTSIDER ALBUM

URIAH HEEP RETURNS WITH POWERFUL NEW RELEASE: OUTSIDER   Uriah Heep, one of the pivotal hard rock groups to emerge from England in the late 1960s returns with Outsider, its 24th studio album, and the first since 2011s critically acclaimed Into the Wild album. Outsider will be released on June 6th in Europe, June 9th in the UK and June 10th in North America on Frontiers Records.   We are very proud of our history says founder/guitarist Mick Box, but it is equally important to keep producing new material. This new album, Outsider, is very much a rock album in true 'Heep' style. It shows that we still have the same passion and energy for our music that we have always had.

SUNSTRIKE - Rock Your World

SunStrike: A glare in the road that can temporarily blind drivers. But SunStrike will blind you with catchy melodies and big choruses! The band was formed by guitarist Joachim Nordlund and the drummer Johan Lindstedt together with singer Christian Hedgren (Twilight Force, The Theander Expression) by the fall of 2012. You also find Joachim and Johan in the Swedish metal act Astral Doors. Right from the start the three guys had a very clear image in how the music should sound like: pure melodic hard rock was on the agenda! When only a handful of songs were written they felt that the songs needed the touch of a real keyboard player. Up until then Joachim had done the keyboard parts on one or two songs.

WINGER - Better Days Comin' (Showcase)

DVD (*): Making of the Album; Videoclip 1 / Videoclip 2 (*) Available only on the Deluxe Edition

“Better Days Comin’” is the anticipated WINGER brand new studio album!

Once again the band offers an exciting mixture of the melodic and commercial approach of the first 2 albums, which catapulted Winger in the Hair Metal stardom with the more technical and almost Progressive feel of such album as “Pull” or “IV”. The logic follow up to the critically acclaimed “Karma” which was hailed as one of the band’s highlight releases ever.

“Better Days Comin’” is an amazing new record where the four band members: Kip Winger (ex Alice Cooper), Reb Beach (Whitesnake), Rod Morgenstein (Dixie Dregs, Steve Morse) and John Roth (Starship, Giant) shine with an incredible instrumental and vocal prowess at the service of superb Hard Rock songs but with an uncanny sense of melody.

Look out for WINGER tour dates in the spring and summer in support of the new album!

Herbie Herbert: One Man's Journey

Herbie Herbert is one of the music industries most colorful characters. For a period of time he was the #1 manager in the business, taking Journey – a band he put together with Neal Schon – to become a multi-Platinum selling stadium act. And in taking the band to the stadiums, he also helped pioneer the way we watch bands in such settings. The video screens and high-tech productions that dominate tours today were developed by Herbie and the company he and Neal remain partners in – Nocturne – who are today behind tours by U2, Madonna, Metallica, Def Leppard and of course, Journey. Herbie also broke Swedish hard rock act Europe in America, not to mention taking Mr. Big, Roxette and Steve Miller Band to more Platinum sales and sold out worldwide tours. He is vocal in his opinions and calls it like he sees it, which doesn't always please some folks on the receiving end.
