Australian hard rockers HANSEL will release their new album, “69 Minutes … with Hansel!” on June 15, 2015 via Prime EON Media on CD. HANSEL‘s “69 minutes … with Hansel” is a culmination of the album “Never Say Die” &their 2 hard to find EPs, “Mission To Rock” & “Fluorescent Blue Lights” that collects all the 20 roaring tracks that the band has recorded up to this point from way back when it all started back in 2008, somewhere down under.
 
HANSEL are five dudes bound by an oath of Rock ‘n’ Roll. They roam the wastelands of standard, boring, paper dry, modern Brit pop bands, leaving them in their wake with their big hair, big anthem, hard hitting, glam rock style.
Track listing:
01. Murder 101
02. Mission To Rock
03. Shot Down For Love
04. Wildcat
05. I Don’t Need Saving (All I Need Is Rock ‘n’ Roll)
06. Eruption
07. Rock City
08. On The Run
09. Wild Tonight
10. Rocket-ship Of Love
11. Between A Rock And A Hard Place
12. Vampire
13. Murder 101
14. 1-800-Pleasure-town
15. The Whole Nine Yards
16. Hansel Says It’s Time To Rock
17. Fluorescent Blue Lights
18. Running On Adrenaline
19. Stop
20. Sweet Desperation
 
HANSEL BRINGS THE GLORY DAYS OF 80′S GLAM ROCK AND METAL FORWARD TO A NEW CENTURY.” – CRAIG HARTRANFT, DANGERDOG.COM
“THE MUSIC SPEAKS FOR ITSELF … GLAM-TASTIC” – SKID, SLEAZEROXX.COM
HANSEL are:
Snake – Drums
Thruster Jones – Rhythm Guitar, Harmonies
Jett Jones – Vocals
Ezi Fingers – Bass
Grind – Lead Guitar
Mindlessly pouring propane onto the flame, HANSEL reignites the fire of rock inside. Hair and metal are combined in a blaze of arena rock glory as the snakeskin clad Novacastrian dudes hit the stage. Like love children of the gods of rock they toy with the sound of a golden age and set it loose upon the world again. Now with a modern edge that’s as sharp as Orion’s sword HANSEL return to bring hair metal back to it’s rightful place your soul.
Glowing like a beacon in the cold dark night. HANSEL is just so hot rite now.

Introducing German All-Star Project SUPREMACY

Artist: 
Thursday, April 30, 2015
Categories: 

MELODIC HARD ROCK IS BACK TO GERMANY - WELCOME SUPREMACY!
 
Do you remember when German bands cranked out true, classic Melodic Rock / Hard Rock albums regularly? When, right after masterpieces by the likes of  the SCORPIONS, releases like BONFIRE's "Point Blank" or "Fireworks", FRONTLINE's "Heroes", CASANOVA and JADED HEART's debut albums used to be played all the time on your stereo? Well....now is the time for the Classic German Hard Rock sound, comprised of steel guitar riffs and super melodic hooks, to make a major come back. The new band's name says it all....SUPREMACY. This band marks the return of the amazing alliance between singer Claus Lessmann (ex-BONFIRE) with Michael Voss (CASANOVA, MAD MAX) plus Robby Boebel (ex FRONTLINE, EVIDENCE ONE) on guitar, Axel Kruse (ex-JADED HEART) on drums and former SCORPIONS bass player Francis Buchholz.

The guys are currently working on some extremely promising demo material and have inked a recording contract with Frontiers Music Srl for a release of their debut album in late 2015 / early 2016.

Michael Voss says: "It's a honor to work with all these gifted musicians on a full length album! After 25 years, to join forces with the fantastic Claus Lessmann takes me back into the 80's heyday times playing in Bonfire. We'll keep that spirit alive and moreover revive it. Thanks to Serafino and Frontiers for believing!"

Claus Lessmann adds: "I am really looking forward to writing, recording and rocking with all the guys of Supremacy. We all have so much to give and it really means a lot to me to work together with those talented musicians. It will also bring back the good old days of Rock'n'Roll when my good old friend Michael Voss was on my side all across Europe back at the "Point Blank" days. A big Grazie to Serafino, Mario and all at Frontiers for their belief and for givin' us one more reason to rock! Every little note of our songs will be a piece of our heart."

NEAL SCHON Debuts New Solo Track & Talks To Billboard

Artist: 
Tuesday, June 23, 2015
Categories: 
 
From Billboard.com today - you can hear a new NEAL SCHON solo track from his upcoming solo album Vortex.
 
He's touring with Journey, finishing up a Santana reunion project and has a new solo album coming out. Look up "busy" in the dictionary and you'll likely find a photo of Neal Schon.
"I'm really busting ass this next year and this year," Schon tells Billboard. "I'm so busy I don't have a free day. I barely have a day off 'cause I bit off so much. But now that I'm in it, I'm not willing to go, 'Y'know what, man? I'm tired.' I'm a little fried, but everybody goes, 'You look great.' I'm feeling good and health-wise I'm really good, so I'm just gonna do it." The two-disc Vortex, whose title comes from a recent nickname for Schon bestowed by Carlos Santana, reunites Schon with early '80s collaborator Jan Hammer, after the keyboardist dropped in on 2011's The Calling. "I had sent Jan a couple tracks to play on for (The Calling) and I hadn't worked with him since the '80s, so we rekindled our friendship and renewed everything," Schon says. "For this album I went to him ahead of time and said, 'I'd love for you top-lay on this record but I'd love you to stretch out more and I'm gonna leave some open space,' and he said, 'Great.' He worked on it in his own studio and just killed it, man."
and on JOURNEY....
Schon plans to give Vortex a live airing during the Les Paul 100th birthday tribute concert on June 9 at the Hard Rock Cafe in New York. He has designs to do a solo tour as well but will have to fit those between his other endeavors. Journey begins its nine-show residency on Wednesday night (April 29) at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, which Schon predicts will be "really great. We're gonna be mixing up the set, so we won't be playing the same thing every show. We've rehearsed a lot of stuff that we didn't play in our tour last year, but we'll have time to rehearse even more." All nine shows will be recorded and filmed, according to Schon, and he also hopes that during downtime Journey will start working on new material. "I've been trying to get things going," Schon reports. "I have a few ideas, just everybody's been in different places and we haven't gotten together yet. But we could probably put together a couple songs while we're rehearsing in Vegas, maybe get 'em in movies or play some new stuff live. That'd be fun."

Vortex is out June 23 via Mascot Records.
