ROXY BLUE Sign Up For New 2019 Album

FRONTIERS ANNOUNCES SIGNING OF MEMPHIS HARD ROCK LEGENDS ROXY BLUE, NEW STUDIO ALBUM COMING IN 2019
 
Frontiers is thrilled to welcome Memphis, TN hard rockers Roxy Blue to the family! Their legendary debut album, "Want Some" is a classic of the early '90s hard rock scene that had continued on from the '80s heyday. The band is currently busy writing and recording a brand new studio album that will be released in 2019.
 
Original members Todd Poole (vocals), Josh Weil (bass), and Scotty Trammell (drums) are joined by new guitarist, Jeff Caughron. (Original guitarist Sid "Boogie" Fletcher has left the music business for a successful career in dentistry.)
 
Vocalist Todd Poole says, "Roxy Blue fans can expect an explosive new album! I think the new record is definitely a different sound than the 1992 version of Roxy Blue, but not unrecognizable. The new record is much heavier, but still has some cool ballads and hints of early Roxy in there. I feel that it's a well balanced record."
 
Poole continues, "I have been writing songs for years for different projects I've been in, but when Frontiers called, I knew it was an opportunity to take a fresh approach to a new Roxy Blue sound. The excitement of having a new record deal actually inspired me to write the songs for the upcoming record from scratch."
 
On the band's legacy, Poole says for ""Want Some" to be recognized as one of the finest moments in the latter hard rock days is an honor. Especially being that there were so many good bands out at the time. We were just so proud to be a part of a great rock era."
 
Formed in Memphis, TN in late 1989 by Todd Poole (vocals/ guitar), Sid Fletcher (guitar), Josh Weil (bass), and Scott Trammell (drums), Roxy Blue started out playing original music from the get go, with their sights set on putting their music in front of a national and then global audience. Knowing that their dreams were not going to come easy, the guys put their all into step one of their journey, which was to get started playing every gig they could get and opening for every band they could, to get themselves noticed in the local Memphis music scene. Crammed in together in a studio apartment above Cotton Row Studios, the guys were constantly writing and recording new songs and living a 24 hour rock 'n roll life style miles and miles away for the Sunset Strip of Los Angeles. Quickly earning a name for themselves within the local Memphis music scene and selling out club shows, they soon created a buzz in the music industry. But, it wasn't until one night while playing a local bar they were approached by Jani Lane, the vocalist of Warrant, that things really started to take off. Jani loved what he heard and wanted to help get Roxy Blue's career launched. Soon after, the labels started calling and eventually Geffen Records' legendary A&R guru Tom Zutaut (Motley Crue, Guns N Roses, Tesla) flew the band to Los Angeles to sign them. The next step was to find the right producer to record the band's debut album. Mike Clink, who had produced Guns 'N Roses milestone "Appetite For Destruction" and, at the time, was finishing up on GnR's "Use Your Illusion" l and ll albums, was ultimately chose for the job. Clink and Roxy Bluewere a perfect match and the result was the 1992 release of WANT SOME. Now, 25 years later Roxy Blue is still going strong.
 
And a fun fact for fans of the Frontiers' label, Roxy Blue vocalist Todd Poole is the son-in-law of the late, great Jimi Jamison who Frontiers had a great, long standing working relationship with.

MAD MAX Turn '35' On August 10

Artist: 
Friday, August 10, 2018
Categories: 
MAD MAX
- New album 35 out August 10 -
- First single and video today -
 
The first single ‘Beat Of The Heart’ stands out among the eleven songs on the forthcoming album 35 for a number of reasons. One the one hand the track could be described as the 2018 successor of Mad Max’s most important hit ‘Night Of Passion’, and on the other hand the band members have made their longstanding dream come true with the video that supports the song. “For once in the history of Mad Max, we wanted to shoot a video that has the look and the cinematic quality of a real little motion picture. Thanks to the support of our sponsor Hubert Teichmann, we got that opportunity at last.”
 
By way of explanation: Hubert Teichmann, among other things the owner of the private “Staudenbahn” railway line near Augsburg, has been a staunch patron of the arts for a number of years – again the term “idealism” comes to mind! – and supplied the financial means that enabled Mad Max to shoot a video clip in Berlin with a number of actors, among them leading man Vinzenz Kiefer (The Baader Meinhof Complex, the action/crime drama series Alarm für Cobra 11, Jason Bourne) and director/screenwriter Oliver Betke.
 
 
35 will be released as CD DigiPak version, limited vinyl version, download and stream on August 10th 2018 through SPV/Steamhammer. https://MadMax.lnk.to/35

Artist: 
 
'There's a new rock n roll thunder coming from the land down under, and it goes by the name CROSSON. Ten tracks of fist in the air rock n roll anthems.' Josh Smith – Hair Band Heaaven  April 2018
"5/5. Supurb.. I love it!!" Rockfarbror (Sweden) April 2018
 
'If you like the of idea of KISS and Motley Crue crossed with The Darkness and Steel Panther, you're gonna love CrossonXavier Russell - Classic Rock Magazine

'Crosson can best be described as a mix of Alice Cooper and KISS with a touch of Sweet and T Rex8.5/10 The Metal Factory (Switzerland) April 2018

 

 
Australian based Futuristic Theatrical Rock Warriors, CROSSON, have returned with their new album Invincible. Invincible is the follow up the bands critically acclaimed 2016 album Spreading The Rock N Roll Disease.
 
Once again mixed by legendary producer Duane Baron (Ozzy Osbourne, Motley Crue, Alice Cooper), and mastered by U.S mastering legend Dave Donnelly (Aerosmith, KISS, Whitesnake), Invincible delivers Crosson's own brand of uplifting catchy rock anthems with loud guitars, big harmonies and a blistering production. 
 
The opening track Rock Warriors is an anthemic tribute to all the bands and artists who laid the foundations for the genre and kept it alive and kicking for decades, whilst the first single Never Give Up is an inspirational and catchy as Chlamydia' track with a strong 80's Bon Jovi vibe that would even make Desmond Child tap his feet!
The album's big ballad Unconditional Love is a duet with renowned Finnish singer and actress Jessica Wolff, with the music video shot in Sydney and Croatia by award winning feature film and music video director Steve Ravic of Majestic Films (Doro, Manowar, Rhapsody).
 
Frontman Jason Crosson says of the album, 'Invincible is 10 notches up from where we left off with Spreading The Rock N Roll Disease. The song writing and production has leaped in great bounds and the album will have you shamelessly singing along to the catchy choruses while leaving your ears bleeding

SOTO - "Detonate" (Official Lyric Video)

Jeff Scott Soto/ SOTO News:
"The 1 year anniversary for probably the most horrible day of my life when SOTO bassist and one of my absolute brothers’ life was taken from us so abruptly…David Z's passing not only shocked all of us close to him, but the rest of the world mourned with us as reality set in that we would never see this incredible human being again!
The biggest compliment and tribute I and the band can pay to him is dropping a new SOTO track which David co-wrote with our own Edu Cominato in the back lounge of our tour bus while we traipsed around Europe on tour last Spring. His tracks on the demo were recorded so well we decided to lift his parts, finish the entire song around him and let you hear the final mark of his work that will also appear on the upcoming SOTO album we are currently writing.
The song is ‘Detonate’, which I wrote the lyrics about my own brother who was in a coma at that time…the words reflect someone in a lifeless shell/body still functioning enough to know they want to detonate, explode out of that body and come back to life.
With cooperation from the Z family, proceeds from the song once it is released for sale will all go to the David Z Foundation. Here are the details for those who would like to make their own contributions to this incredible person and cause.
We chose this day to honor our brother because we knew HE would get all the recognition for it that he deserves, today we praise you brother Dave, you are IMMENSELY missed, thought of EVERY DAY and now immortalized in song with us!"
