AFM Records is proud to announce the signing of Canadian Rock act DANKO JONES to a worldwide deal (except Canada). After having reached their highest chart positions to date in a handful of territories with their previous album Fire Music and having been awarded Gold & Platinum singles in Sweden, Danko return with their new masterpiece, Wild Cat, once again produced by Juno Award winning producer Eric Ratz.
 Wild Cat is due for release on March 3rd worldwide through eOne in Canada and AFM Records/Bad Taste Records in the rest of the world.

With Fire Music (2015), the predecessor to Wild Cat, Danko reached their highest chart positions to date in Germany, the Netherlands, Austria and Finland and also charted in another handful of key territories. The first single ”Do You Wanna Rock” peaked at #5 on the Active Rock radio charts in Canada, making it their highest charting single in Canada in their career. The song also received massive airplay around the globe.
 Danko Jones have never felt more vibrant or hungry than they are on Wild Cat. The 11-track album is a raw representation of the band’s collective musical history and influences, and without a doubt their most solid album yet.

Celebrating 20 years in the rock n’roll game in 2016, Danko Jones have an impressive resume to show for the past two decades. In addition to sold out headline tours across Canada and the European continent they have also toured the US, Brazil, Japan, Australia and South Africa and done extensive collaborations with a vast number of great artists. The Canadian trio has spent months on the road with Guns N Roses, Motörhead and Volbeat and opened up for The Rolling Stones and Ozzy. Danko was recently featured as a guest vocalist on the Volbeat track “Black Rose”, one of the most streamed songs on their latest album and he also joined Mike McCready (Pearl Jam), Duff McKagan (GNR), and Barrett Martin (Screaming Trees) for a session with The Levee Walkers where he sang on two tracks.

The Wild Cat World Tour starts off with two shows in Finland in February and a series of shows in Europe in March and April. A Canadian tour and more European dates will be announced shortly, with other territories to follow.

“One of the most ridiculously entertaining and exciting live bands on the planet. Danko himself is a priapic whirlwind of charisma, riffs and lascivious charm.”

Frontiers Music Srl Signs THE NIGHTS – Melodic Rock Band From Finland

Posted in classic rock, Hard Rock, Music, news, rock music, world news with tags , , , , on November 24, 2016 by Metal Odyssey

the-nights-2016-publicity-pic-frontiers-srl-mo99ilmfso333

Frontiers Music Srl is pleased to announce the signing of an extremely promising Melodic Rock band from Finland, THE NIGHTS.

THE NIGHTS was formed in the summer of 2015 by Sami Hyde (vocals) and Ilkka Wirtanen (guitar). Both Sami and Ilkka have successful careers in music, in Finland and abroad. Sami has been a singer for many acts and projects, including the Tony Mills Band (SHY, TNT) in 2008 which also included Geoff Nichols (Black Sabbath) on keyboards and Neil Hibbs (SHY) on guitar. He has also written songs for many artists, including The Magnificent (“If It Takes All Night”, “Lost”, and “Drive”).

Ilkka Wirtanen is best known for his work as a producer with international acts like glam metal band Reckless Love, for whom he has produced four albums and co-written many of their popular songs, including “Hot” and “Night On Fire”. He has also produced several other rock bands (Baton Rogue Morgue, Hellcity Punks) and worked as a mixer for international acts (S.E.X. Department).

THE NIGHTS was formed because Sami and Ilkka felt a common need to write songs that “make you feel good and also give tribute to our everlasting heroes in music, for example TNT and Yngwie Malmsteen.” Frontiers interest was piqued by their songs featuring a superb mixture of classic pop melodies and modern melodic rock/metal production and the band was signed!

A fireworks of songs, sounds and party – all three bands will rock fans into the Hard Rock Nirvana”. And GOTTHARD’s Leo Leoni adds: ” We are thrilled and look forward to this historic event – it will be a unique summit meeting with Swiss hard rock at it’s best!”
