Artist: 
Monday, March 23, 2015
Categories: 
MelodicRock Records is very excited to announce another great addition to our roster of releases.
 
Dutch melodic rock/AOR band TERRA NOVA are set to deliver their pomptastic new album 'Reinvent Yourself' on March 23.
 
Pre-orders will be available Monday along with the other two new label signings TONK and EMPIRES OF EDEN.
 
Right now, please check out 3 tracks from 'Reinvent Yourself', showcasing the band's instantly likable unique AOR style.
 
 
 
Reinvent Yourself is the 6th studio album of the Dutch band Terra Nova. In 1996 their highly acclaimed debut album Livin´ It Up was launched. After that the albums Break Away in 1997 and Make My Day in 1999 followed.
 
After the first three albums the band had to split up due to a conflict with their Dutch record company.
Fred, Ron and Gesuino continued under the name Aquila and released two albums: Say Yeah 2001 and Man With A Mission 2004.
 
In 2004 the band was free from their contractual obligations towards their Dutch record company and signed a record deal with Frontiers Records.
 
The first album after their break was Escape released 2005 followed by the album Come Alive 2010.
 
In 2007 Fred, Ron, Gesuino and two woman: Esther Brouns and Anita Craenmehr got together as Two Of A Kind and released a superb album Two Of A Kind.
 
End of 2013 the Reinvent Yourself album was written by Fred and recorded and mixed during 2014. During 2014 the band and their record label Frontiers had different views on which direction the album should take. This resulted in Terra Nova moving on with their album without a record company.
 
In 2015 Terra Nova was signed by Melodic Rock Records for the world and King Records for Japan.
 
The album Reinvent Yourself is about trying to improve yourself over and over again. It´s a process of finding a better version of yourself . Trying to take it to the highest level.

Categories: 
TONK "Ruby Voodoo" is set for release on MelodicRock Records MARCH 9. Stay tuned for soundbytes and pre-order links.
 
Please welcome Aussie hard rockers TONK to the MelodicRock Records family. 
TONK have recorded a fantastic old-school hard rock record with famed producer Nick Didier (Velvet Revolver, Stone Temple Pilots, RATM, Pearl Jam, Bruce Springsteen). It sounds authentic, because it is authentic!
 
Check out 2 preview tracks right now: www.melodicrock.com/audio/MRR%20-%20Mystery%20Signing.mp3
 
TONK hail from Canberra Australia. And like the Aussie legends before them, this hard-rock quintet just want to have a great time delivering their own brand of hard gritty tunes... 
Screaming vocals, ripping guitars and bombastic drums leave nothing left for the faint hearted.

You'll love the experience of course, whether it's your first time or you are a longstanding Tonkist, wherever you come across them, when Jinks, Steve, Ben, Matt and Mikey get in a room together, hard rockin' sparks fly!!!
The music of Tonk may be of the classic ilk, but its unapologetic affection for old-school rock makes it infectious.

Tonk's debut album, Sister Switchblade was released on November 2007 to worldwide critical acclaim,
scoring the band world-wide radio airplay, a distribution deal with Modern Music/SONY BMG, a US licensing deal (Undercover Tracks), 
TV syncs and countless articles in local and international online and print media.

In September 2012, Tonk were invited and accepted to be included on a French Aussie compilation CD 'Rock Des Antipodes' by French label Bad Reputation.
Coming in at track 5, alongside the likes of Baby Animals, Jet, The Vines, Airbourne, Masters Apprentices, Dallas Crane and others.
Tonk were also involved in an international furore when it was found that FOX networks 'How I Met Your Mother' 
TV series had recorded and used their song 'Golden Girl' without permission on two separate occasions prompting the band to pursue remuneration and correction of the aired broadcast sheets. 

www.abc.net.au/news/2012-03-15/how-fox-stole-our-song2c-aussie-band-tells/3892612
 
Tonk have toured and played alongside: Airbourne, Helmet (USA), The Screaming Jets, Jimmy Barnes, The Casanovas, Shihad, The Poor, Grinspoon, The Angels, Gyroscope, MM9, Karnivool, COG, Sunset Riot, Dead Letter Circus, The Butterfly Effect, Mammal, Full Scale, Hell City Glamours, The Red Coats, INK, King of the North and Karnivool to name drop a few.
 
In October 2014 we headed up to Studios 301 in Byron Bay to record our 2nd album "Ruby Voodoo" with the honourable Nick Didia (Velvet Revolver, Stone Temple Pilots, RATM, Pearl Jam, Bruce Springsteen, etc).
Much like our rock forefathers before us, we tracked the album live using little digital trickery (no click track or auto-tune, etc) adding vocals and guitar noodlery afterwards.
The album is slated for release March 9, 2015... And we can't wait for it to land!

Dario was born in Palermo, Italy in 1979. He learned to play guitar at the age of 6 years studying classical guitar and music theory at "Vincenzo Bellini" conservatory in Palermo. During the high school years he formed, with his brothers Max and Alex, his first hard rock band called Dragon’s Breath. In 1997, Dario joined some great bands as Cherry BombzSqueezy Boyz and Empty Roads.
 
At the same time, he began to study singing, improving his skills thanks to some stages with Elizabeth Sabine [singing-master of Axl Rose, Dave Mustaine, Ron Keel etc.]. In 1998 he joined the well-known power metal band Thy Majestie as lead singer, adapting his voice to the heavier sound of the band.
The original and clear voice of Dario gave to the music of Thy Majestie a melodic feeling melted with the power of heavy metal.  After two albums ["The Lasting Power" and "Hastings 1066"] and one EP ["Echoes of War"], Dario left the band in October 2003 in order to dedicate all his energies to his new project Platens where he played all the instruments.
 
This new musical adventure saw the light of day on Frontiers Records whose president and A&R director, Serafino Perugino, heard the first demos and was enthusiast with what he heard. The debut album “Between Two Horizons” was released in 2004 and featured a driving melodic hard rock approach very close to the sound of such bands as Fair Warning, Terra Nova and Grand Illusion
Between 2005 and 2014 Dario has been very busy in his activity as producer, composer and songwriter. He worked with many Italian talented singers and musicians like Katia Miceli (X-Factor 2009 and winner of “Cantagiro 2008”, one of the most important Italian festival), Gianni Bella, Giuseppe Finocchiaro, Lorencè Brahem, Pio Fanale, Riccardo Favara and he took part to some international musical projects (Charming Grace, Caravellus).

At the same time he started the work on his new band called Violet Sun with his brother Alex on drum and the talented singer Alessandra Amata. Together they recorded and produced the debut album “Loneliness In Supremacy “was released in 2010 on Melodic Rock Records.
