BOB SEGER Takes Aim On Dream 40 Years Ago With 'Live Bullet'

Artist: 

Dallas, TX - May 26, 2016.  North American syndicated Rock radio show and website InTheStudio: The Stories Behind History’s Greatest Rock Bands puts the crosshairs on the pivotal live album by Detroit journeyman rocker Bob Seger, who took aim on a dream and squeezed the trigger. With sales to date of over six million copies, Bob Seger and the Silver Bullet Band’s April 1976 double live album Live Bullet may be the biggest-selling album in history to have missed the Top 30 initially. Live Bullet sales took off after Bob Seger’s breakthrough Night Moves, his tenth album, skyrocketed later that same year.

1968’s “Ramblin‘ Gamblin‘ Man” hit single had been the “bullet” in the chamber, but during the ensuing seven years Seger added a clip full of songs including “Beautiful Loser”,” the rapid-fire rocker “Katmandu”, and the secret weapon “Turn the Page”. As Bob explains to InTheStudio host Redbeard, playing with live ammo those next several years was challenging to prove that Seger was not firing blanks .                              

“ After “Ramblin’ Gamblin’ Man” did rather well, the next seven years or so were a little dry, and I’ve always called those years, ‘Bob learns to make albums’, because that’s a whole different thing than making a hit single. I had to develop my writing because I was on the road constantly, where I really didn’t have much of a chance to write. We were doing like 250 nights a year... At some point I said to myself, ‘I really enjoy doing this. I really don’t want to have a what musicians call a ‘day gig’.”  - Bob Seger

STRATOVARIUS Release “Best Of” Album on earMUSIC

Artist: 
 
Stratovarius, one of the most influential, successful and enduring power metal bands in the world, release their long awaited “Best Of” album on May 27th on earMUSIC and Sony Music Entertainment.
 
What started in 1985 under the name Black Water left a trail of 16 studio albums, ten Top 5 chart positions in their native country Finland and more than 40 top chart positions around the globe. Their distinguished mix of fast progressive metal and a melodic approach made symphonic metal originators Stratovarius one of the top names in the world.
 
After a few bumpy steps and stones in the band’s line-up, Stratovarius’ song writing found its peak in their recent studio works “Elysium”, “Nemesis” and “Eternal”. All milestones in sound, creativity and song writing.
 
It happens rarely nowadays, especially in metal, that a band creates one magic song after the other. Stratovarius are surely one of the few exceptions, now presenting 29 hits and fan favourites (and there could have been more!) on their long awaited “Best Of” album, which is released as 2CD Standard Edition, 3CD Limited Edition, and Download.
 
Both CD editions are released in a high quality packaging with liner notes written by exceptional keyboardist Jens Johansson and rare picture material from the band’s private archive. The Limited edition also includes the exclusive 60 minute bonus CD “Live At Wacken 2015”.
 
As a special treat, the “Best Of” features the brand new song “Until The End Of Days” from the current band line up consisting of Timo Kotipelto, Jens Johansson, Mattias Kupainen, Lauri Porra and Rolf Pilve.
 
All hand-picked by the band and adding up to 2 ½ hours of pure Stratovarius bliss, the songs give metal fans and those to be, a great selection of the band’s impressive work, including classics such as “Black Diamond”, “Hunting High And Low” and “Speed Of Light” as well as more recent material such as the most streamed song in the band’s history “Unbreakable” and “Shine In The Dark” from their recent studio album “Eternal”.
 
All songs are remastered by the band’s long-time companion Mika Jussila of Finnvox Studios.
 
Jens Johansson explains: “It's been 20 years since the Episode album, we're all getting older but this stuff sounds as fresh as ever. Could it be that Stratovarius has discovered the fountain of Eternal Youth!? You may feel younger, but we can't actually (legally) promise you'll be younger after listening to this best-of album, but we can guarantee one thing: when you put it through your speakers, it will play Until the End of Days!!
To me it's a testament to the fact that paying attention to song writing and production was expensive, but so worth it. The songs, the sound and the performances really have stood the test of time.”
 
Timo Kotipelto adds: “Wow! 20 years in Stratovarius have passed at the speed of light! I still remember when I joined the band and was happy to do some power metal. And I am very happy to still be able to do it after all these years! This collection of songs is an excellent selections and a cool way to remember the history of the band from the past to the present! I hope you will enjoy it as much as we did while selecting the songs. Rock the Metal!”

TOBY JEPSON Returns As WAYWARD SONS in 2017

Artist: 
 
News from FRONTIERS RECORDS: Toby Jepson has been a busy man since the hugely successful Little Angels disbanded in 1994. His production wizardry has been in high demand, with acts such as The Virginmarys and The Answer calling on him to produce their albums. He has been instrumental in the rise of James Toseland's band, co-writing and producing two albums with the act who are a growing force on the live circuit and making serious waves in Europe and the US. Add to that several co-writing credits with Katie Melua and you have a great idea of the depth and quality of his songwriting. He has even managed to squeeze in a few solo EPs along the way to keep his faithful fanbase engaged and entertained.
 
Now we are delighted to announce that Toby Jepson is back doing what he is best known and loved for, and that his new band, WAYWARD SONS has signed to our lable, and will commence work on a new album imminently.
 
It is all about songs for Toby. He is not someone to do anything by halves, his heart and soul will be put into producing a record that will make him proud and that we are certain will be greeted with enthusiasm from his loyal fans and the wider rock audience across the world.
 
Let Toby sum it up himself: 'I feel I have unfinished business, stories still left to tell, points to make, noise to create, all of the above...besides, it wasn't a choice, more of a need. My intention is very simple. I want to write about what makes me tick; about what I believe in. Hopefully you will believe in it too. It will be warts and all'.
 
Expect the album in the first half of 2017. In the meantime, check out the band on Facebook here: https://www.facebook.com/waywardsonsbanduk/

LAND OF TALES Releases New Song "Debutant"

The new song is a great mix of typical Land of Tales sound with darker and heavier elements. I am extremely proud of the results. It's really great that people get to hear a different side to Land of Tales music. (Kristian)

Mixing took a quite long time, because there is so much going on in the tracks. We needed many trials and errors to get all things to work. It was challenging but rewarding (Palle)

You can find "Debutant" on Spotify, iTunes, Deezer, Google Play and Tidal.
