Zinatra - "This Song Is For You" (New Audio)

Zinatra was originally formed back in 1986. They released their debut album in 1988. After two albums, ‘Zinatra’ and ‘The Great Escape’, the band stopped in 1992 and each member went their own way. Fans always asked for a new recording ever since and now it just happened that Joss Mennen and Ron Lieberton met and decided to release a reunion single.
So especially for this reunion event we hope that you will like the single! It will be released on June 21th on all major streaming and download sites. ‘This song is for you’ is a recording of a song which only existed as a demo. It originates from the time when Ron and Kelly wrote new songs for the band. Joss, Gino and Ron are, for this special occasion, accompanied by Henk Lieberton and Ronald Jeurissen.
 
Credits:
This song is for you written by Ronald J. Lieberton / Kelly
vocals: Joss Mennen
guitars: Gino Rerimassie
keyboards: Ron Lieberton bass,

Inspired by the late 80’s rock scene with bands such as, Def Leppard, Europe, Motley Crue, Bon Jovi and GNR, Nitrate is the brainchild of Nick Hogg (guitars/keyboards) who after playing in a few bands in the early 2000’s decided after a long absence from the music scene to get back into song writing again. Needing help, Nick enlisted songwriter/musician Rob Wylde (Midnite City/Tigertailz/Teenage Casket Company) who was back living in Nottingham from the US and had the same musical influences. Rob was able to structure/produce the songs, sing on the demo’s whilst playing drums, bass and guitar. Whilst Nick also played guitar and keyboards.

A year on and with over an albums worth of material, a record contract was signed with MelodicRock Records. With Rob Wylde about to launch Midnite City, the hunt went on for a suitable vocalist to allow Rob the opportunity to focus on launching his new band. Andrew McNeice suggested a few vocalists and was keen to use an authentic 80’s singer, so Nick took the opportunity to contact Joss Mennen (Zinatra/Mennen) and asked if he would be interested in singing lead vocals on the album. (Zinatra’s ‘Great Escape’ being one of Nick’s favourite albums).

To complete the line-up, taking over mixing/drums and adding backing vocals to the album is Pete Newdeck (Midnite City, Eden’s Curse, Blood Red Saints, Newman).
 
After being mixed by Newdeck, the songs were sent to Harry Hess (Harem Scarem) who mastered them at his studio in Canada.
 
Nitrate isn’t a one-off project, Album 2 is already written with the same Hogg/Wylde writing partnership and will be coming your way in 2019.
 
And of course, for such a kick-ass album, we needed kick-ass artwork and Nello Del'Omo delivered big time!
