C.O.P To Declare The 'State of Rock' via AOR Heaven Sept 25

Artist: 
Friday, September 25, 2015
Categories: 

AOR Heaven’s upcoming September 25 release is from C.O.P, feat. 3 members of the amazing AOR band Grand Illusion.
 
[]
 
Most great rock music can be boiled down into a three letter word, be it G ’N R, R’n’R, AOR or as in this case - C.O.P. From Sweden, arguably the best breeding ground of modern melodic rock, come this three piece of heralded and experienced AOR-sters, including one of the genre’s top singers, a guitar hero and producer extraordinaire and a song writing drummer.

Frontman Peter Sundell has graced a number of highly revered albums over the years. His work with Grand Illusion, Decoy and recently, Starlight Brigade, has made AOR fans all over the world drewl, in awe over his high pitched and powerful voice. As the singer of C.O.P he has finally taken the step forward as one of the true masters of melodic rock singing.

Peter’s younger brother Christian was also part of the Grand Illusion family and although he’s capable on most instruments, he has never revealed what an excellent songwriter he is. Until now, that is. It’s his songs and vision that marks the foundation of C.O.P, and it is his knack for writing instant, catchy, earworm worthy hooks that will surely make these boys a revelation to AOR fans all over the world.

The third and last part of the C.O.P equation consists of Peter and Christian’s long lost little brother Ola af Trampe, an extremely talented guitarist, producer and songwriter, also of Grand Illusion, Code and The Killbilly 5’ers fame. Without Ola, there would quite frankly be no C.O.P (and C.P would be a silly name for a band, wouldn’t it).

C.O.P are the new blue bloods of melodic rock, with their arresting songs, smash and grab choruses and captivating musicianship and they are here to show you what the State of Rock is like in 2015. “State Of Rock” is the name of their first album. The CD was mixed and record by Ola af Trampe at ChrisStudio, Nässjö, Sweden and Studio 165, Växjö, Sweden and mastered by Frank Rosato, Woodcliff Studios, Los Angeles, U.S.A.

Enough with the law enforcement metaphors, already just listen to the music it’s guaranteed to blow your mind and, quite possibly make you want to rock the fuck out. 
 
Line-up: Peter Sundell - Lead and Backing vocals, Ola af Trampe - Guitar, Bass, Christian Sundell - Keyboard, Drums
 
Tracklist: 1. Loner, 2. I want the world to know, 3. Nightmare, 4. Without you, 5. On the run, 6. In my dreams, 7. She’s gone, 8. In the night, 9. Broken Heart, 10. Darkness

BRYAN ADAMS Announces 'I Get Up' Album & 'You Belong To Me' Single

Artist: 
Friday, October 16, 2015
Categories: 
 
LOS ANGELES, Aug. 10, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Multi-platinum recording artist Bryan Adams is set to release his thirteenth studio album, Get Up (UMe), on October 16. Produced by famed ELO frontman Jeff Lynne and co-written with his long-time collaborator Jim Vallance, the album features nine new songs and four acoustic versions, tracklisting below.  Get Up is available for pre-order now via all digital partners and includes instant-grat track "You Belong To Me," followed by lead track "Brand New Day" available September 7, and the final early download, "Don't Even Try" prior to street date.  Preorder link: http://smarturl.it/BryanAdamsGetUp.
 
A performance clip will be released to accompany the first download "You Belong To Me," and  fans can look forward to the official music video for "Brand New Day" directed by Adams featuring BAFTA Award-winning actress, Helena Bonham Carter, and musician Theo Hutchcraft from acclaimed synth-pop duo Hurts. 
 
Get Up is a solid collection of beautifully-crafted rock songs, from the fast and furious up-tempo tracks such as lead song "Brand New Day," "You Belong To Me" and "Thunderbolt," to the gentler songs such as "Don't Even Try" and "We Did It All," plus the alternative Adams-produced acoustic versions, highlighting Adams' unique voice and depth.. 
 
Get Up is a body of work that Adams is truly proud of and with multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, producer Jeff Lynne - whose credits include The Beatles, Paul McCartney, Randy Newman and Tom Petty, as well as being the co-founder, producer and member of the Traveling Wilburys - at the helm shaping the record, Get Up will sit nicely alongside Adams' earlier classics.
 
"It came together quite organically," recalls Adams, "song by song, working with Jeff producing over the past couple of years whenever he had time. It was a great partnership as it gave me plenty of time to write the songs, most of which are a collaboration with Jim Vallance. We all worked primarily over the internet from Canada, Europe and LA, sending demos and parts of songs until we got it right."
 
"I've always been a big fan of Bryan so getting to work with him was a great pleasure," says Jeff  Lynne.  "Bryan would send me a demo across the internet, then I would play most of the instruments to make a finished backing track and send it back to him in England. There he would put the lead vocal on to the song and send it back to me in California, 5,400 miles apart! And it's turned out to be a rockin' album!"
"There is a carefree feeling about this album," adds Adams,"and in many ways it is the album I wish I'd been able to make 25 years ago."
 
Adams continues to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of his critically-acclaimed album Reckless last year, with a sold-out global headlining tour – upcoming North American dates below. This summer, Adams will be co-headlining with Rod Stewart at BBC Radio 2 Live in Hyde Park Festival on September 13.

MARTINA EDOFF Set To Conquer The Usa With Epica Support Tour And Solo Debut

Artist: 
Friday, October 16, 2015
 
Having previously worked with a variety of artists (Dr. Alban, E-Type, the Poodles, etc.), singer Martina Edoff is ready to return to where her original musical love - classic hard rock - with the release of her solo debut, 'Unity' on October 16 via Into Records (distributed by Cargo Records), and will embark on a US tour from September 18 through October 3 on a bill that will feature headliners Epica, as well as Eluveitie and the Agonist. Follow this YouTube link to view a tour trailer:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tBFDFGztgG4&feature=youtu.be

'Unity' was recorded at the legendary Bohus Sound Studios in Sweden, whose long list of clients since the start 35 years ago includes both ABBA and Status Quo (who recorded their hit album and best-selling single ”Rockin’ All Over The World” in the same studio). Martina’s producer and sound engineer, Tobias Lindell, has previously recorded, mixed, and produced bands such as Europe, Mustasch, and Hardcore Superstar at Bohus Sound.

Martina describes the material on 'Unity' as "uptempo rock," but several ballads help even things out.

Standout tracks (and their creative inspiration) include:

Unity
"It´s a wake up call for those who only seek satisfaction in the material world. The true wealthiness begins from the inside of ourselves."

Never Let You Down
"A proposal to someone who has been through bad relationship experiences."

World Has Gone Mad [music video can be viewed here - https://youtu.be/yCKh8WuMoEM]
"Today in the western world we spend more time in front of a screen than we spend time in nature or with loved ones. Life passes by quickly without really noticing it. If we don’t open our eyes to the real world we might miss what really happens."

Spirit of Light
"To all the young ones out there who has their lives in front of them. How valuable they are and to tell them how fantastic they are."

I am Mining
"Ones that seek shall find. Its about to find whatever you are searching for and never give up even if it seems impossible."

Love Keeps Turning Away
"The game of love. Even if you fail you got to try it again."

Moment of Truth
"It´s about being in a relationship where the truth came out about lies and betrayals."

This Love is Crazy
"Someone is playing with your emotions and you realize you gotta get out of it."

Argentina-based fans will get an opportunity to catch a performance by not only Martina, but also by Tarja Turunen as special guest support, at their show in Argentina on the November 14, at Estadio Malvinas Argentinas: www.facebook.com/events/571897269616254

For more than three decades, Nalle Påhlsson has been one of Sweden's leading rock bassists, providing reliable backing vocals along the way. September sees the release of Nalle Påhlsson's Royal Mess. An album where Nalle finally steps out as a lead singer, songwriter and versatile musician (providing rhythm guitars and keyboards, as well as bass).
 
Inspired by his oldest brother's record collection, Nalle started playing guitar at an early age. At 10, he joined his first band, switching to bass guitar the following year.
 
"Playing the bass reflects my personality. If I was a housebuilder I'd be into cement, working on the foundation. I feel just as at home playing the rhythm guitar, which has a similar role", Nalle smiles.
 
His early influences – Deep Purple, Kiss, The Sweet, Kansas – instilled the rock'n'roll dream, and the success of the band Europe proved that it was possible for Swedes his own age to make it.
Soon, Nalle was a sought-after bass player, touring and/or recording with some of Scandinavia's biggest names (Mikael Rickfors, Mats Ronander, Pugh Rogefeldt, Sanne Salomonsen, Easy Action and many others). He also formed what may have been Sweden's first tribute band, AB/CD. Not only did they play impeccable AC/DC covers; Nalle (who, being the rhythm guitarist, naturally called himself Nalcolm) also wrote new material in the style of the Australian rockers. AB/CD released one EP and two albums. The first album shifted 30,000 units, outselling some of Sweden's most hyped rock bands in the process.
 
Nalle continued to work as a freelance musician, as well as being a member of bands like Treat, Last Autumn's Dream, Vindictiv and Therion.
 
"I always tried to create bass lines that added something to the music, and made it more interesting and varied".
 
His efforts did not go unnoticed: in 2010, he was voted Bass Player of the Year on MelodicRock.com
 
But there was always a sense of unfinished business. He had his own album to make. And now it's finally here.
 
Royal Mess reflects a big part of Nalle's musical tastes. Crunchy riffs, high energy playing, and catchy melodies. Timeless and melodic hard rock/AOR, as opposed to metal. Elements of prog can be detected, too, but he has chosen to save most of that side for another time.
 
It would be hard to pick out specific highlights from such a strong collection of quality songs. Most of them convey a life-affirming feeling. Nalle has had his share of bad relationships and self-destructive behaviour. Four years sober, he has used his time well, playing sessions and touring the world as Therion's bass player, while making this album.
 
"I have spent a lot of time being drunk or hungover in my day. The drinking increased around 2008, and one day I had just had enough. I realized that not only did I hurt myself, but also the ones I care about the most: my kids, my mother, my brothers and my friends. I decided to look for help. Ever since then, my whole life has become more enjoyable".
Most of the album's lyrics describe this journey.
"I hope that the songs inspire others who find themselves in similar situations to make a change, and take control of their own destiny. It's never too late."
 
The album was produced and arranged by Nalle himself, and mixed by renowned producer/musician/songwriter/artist, Chris Laney, who provided the already big and bold material with his trademark "in your face" attitude, and a slightly more modern twist.
 
The list of musicians credited on the album reads like a who's who of the Swedish hard rock community. How about Kee Marcello (Easy Action/Europe), Love Magnusson (Dynazty), Pontus Norgren (Hammerfall), Micke Hujanen (AB/CD), Stefan Lindholm (Vindictiv), Henrik Bergqvist (The Poodles), and Kristian Niemann (Therion) – and that's just the solo guitarists. It seems that everyone who knows Nalle wanted to help put him in the spotlight by lending their talents to the album. However, it's Nalle's vocals, rhythm guitar, bass and songwriting that is the core of the album's sound and style. The question remains: Why on earth hasn't he sung lead before?
 
"A lot of people who have heard the album have wondered why I have waited so long to do it. I guess it's a question of self confidence. People also seem to find it refreshing that I have made a classic hard rock album that reminds them of the Seventies and Eighties. But this is quite simply the kind of music I grew up listening to. I guess the only target group I had in mind was me!" Nalle laughs.
 
Nalle Påhlsson's Royal Mess is a personal and musical victory. 
Put it on, crank it up, and you will soon know why.

FOREIGNER Set For Yet Another Live Acoustic Release

Artist: 
Release Year: 
2015
Categories: 
Foreigner Set to Perform & Record First Live Acoustic Album 'The Hits Unplugged and Live' at Charity Event on 8/24
 
July 29, 2015 – Foreigner--Mick Jones (lead guitar), Kelly Hansen (lead vocals), Jeff Pilson (bass, vocals), Michael Bluestein (keyboards), Tom Gimbel (rhythm guitar, sax, vocals), Bruce Watson (guitar) and Chris Frazier (drums) -- is universally hailed as one of the world’s most popular rock acts with a formidable arsenal of hit songs that continue to propel sold-out tours and album chart action. Now they will perform and record their forthcoming album, “The Hits Unplugged and Live,” at a private event benefitting JDRF (formally known as Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation) on August 24th at The Ford Motor Company Conference and Event Center in Dearborn, Michigan. Limited tickets to this event are available by contacting [email protected] or 313-248-1655. Foreigner is donating their performance that evening, and their royalties from the record to JDRF, a charity close to the band’s heart. This new collection of never-before heard live acoustic recordings will be available on Sony in early 2016.
 
The evening’s one-hour set will feature some of rock’s best-known hits including “Feels Like The First Time,” “Cold As Ice,” “Hot Blooded,” “Juke Box Hero,” “Waiting For A Girl Like You,” and Foreigner’s iconic ballad, “I Want To Know What Love Is.” The show will be opened by an acapella performance by beloved Detroit student choir, Mosaic, who will also join Foreigner on stage for “I Want To Know What Love Is.” Guests will enjoy a strolling dinner that will feature select menu items curated by Foreigner frontman and celebrated foodie Kelly Hansen prior to the performance. Also taking place that night will be a charity event featuring significant Foreigner memorabilia.
 JDRF is the leading global organization focused on type 1 diabetes (T1D) research. JDRF’s goal is to progressively remove the impact of T1D from people’s lives until they achieve a world without T1D. JDRF collaborates with a wide spectrum of partners and is the only organization with the scientific resources, policy influence and a working plan to bring life-changing therapies from the lab to the community. As the largest charitable supporter of T1D research, JDRF has invested nearly $2B in research over the past 45 years and is sponsoring scientific research in 17 countries worldwide.
 
“We are so pleased to be collaborating with JDRF for such a meaningful program,” says Foreigner founder/lead guitarist, Mick Jones, Songwriters Hall Of Fame member who either wrote or co-wrote every Foreigner song. “Type 1 diabetes is a cause close to our heart, as our longtime tour manager’s daughter was diagnosed with T1D in 2003 when she was 4 years old. There is tremendous anticipation around our first ever live acoustic album, and we’re glad we could donate our performance fees and royalties to benefit such an important cause.”
 
“We are thrilled to have Ford Motor Company as a partner who brings opportunities like the iconic band Foreigner to help raise awareness for type 1 diabetes,” said Margo K. Lucero, JDRF’s senior vice president, corporate and international development. “JDRF's mission is to accelerate life-changing breakthroughs to cure, prevent and treat T1D and its complications, and we are so grateful to Ford and Foreigner for the support in helping us move closer to our goal to create a world without T1D.”
 
This is just one of the Mick Jones's philanthropic efforts, which also include a longtime partnership with The GRAMMY Foundation’s effort to support music in schools.  Foreigner invites a local high school to join them on stage at each concert they play, providing these choir’s the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to perform #1 hit “I Want To Know What Love Is” live with the band. Foreigner makes a direct donation to each school’s high school music program, as well as donating a portion of the evening’s CD sales to the GRAMMY Foundation. Over the years, Foreigner has raised well into the six-figures through this program, inviting more than 220 high school choirs to join the band on stage, allowing more than 6,000 students, teachers and parents to enjoy this life changing experience.
 
With ten multi-platinum albums and sixteen Top 30 hits, Foreigner has defied all odds of a heritage band with continued Billboard chart action and album sales, now exceeding 75 million. Foreigner has experienced a true renaissance in recent years, thanks in part to their legendary songs being featured in films like “Anchorman 2,” “Magic Mike” and “Orange Is The New Black,” with The New York Post’s “Page Six” recently noting “Foreigner is enjoying an unexpected renaissance with the millennial set.”

INNERWISH In Studio Recording New Album

Artist: 
Release Year: 
2015
Categories: 

The greek melodic metallers INNERWISH entered the studio on the 5th of August and began recording their fifth studio album, for an early 2016 release through Ulterium Records.
Drums are being tracked at Devasoundz Studios (of SEPTIC FLESH fame) in Athens, Greece, with Fotis Benardo (ex- SEPTIC FLESH drummer and current SIXFORNINE vocalist) handling the recordings.

The as-yet-untitled new album, is the first with the two newest members of the band, George Eikosipentakis on vocals and Fragiskos Samoilis on drums.

Regarding the musical direction of the new material, the band stated: “This time things worked a bit differently, still maintaining the basic core. New members, fresh ideas were blended to our music characteristics and we believe this is the more diverse album we have ever created. Yet powerful, melodic, heavy, lyrical and full of energy. All the INNERWISH elements are still here, but expanded in a way that came naturally through this long and difficult period, during which we were composing and trying to guarantee the best possible result. In the end though, we are proud with these new songs, the sound of INNERWISH of today and feel confident that you will love them too! Let’s roll the dice again”.
Songtitles set to appear on the album include “Broken”, “Zero Ground”, “Through My Eyes”, “Serenity”, “Roll The Dice” and “The Sins Of The Past”.

INNERWISH’s latest album, “No Turning Back”, was released in May 2010 via Ulterium Records.
