Stone Says: I am absolutely psyched outta my skull to hear this new STYX studio album! STYX forever! Whoa! I can care in the least that Dennis DeYoung is not with STYX anymore. No offense to Dennis DeYoung at all; he’s been doing his own gig for years now very successfully. For God’s sake, those that complain about Dennis DeYoung no longer being with STYX: GET OVER IT. Take some EX-LAX. That’s life.

It’s been how many years now that STYX has survived (very well) without Dennis DeYoung? KISS has survived without Ace Frehley and Peter Criss. It’s the way the Rock ‘N’ Roll world turns. ‘Nuff said. Metal Be Thy Name. – Stone

PRIDE OF LIONS – New Studio Album “Fearless” Releases On January 27th, 2017, via Frontiers Music SRL

BREAKING NEWS: Frontiers Music Srl is pleased to announce the release of the highly anticipated new studio album from PRIDE OF LIONS, FEARLESS, on January 27, 2017.

When Frontiers released Pride Of Lions’ groundbreaking first album in 2003, many people asked, “Is this one of those project bands that do one or two albums and then disappear – or a real band with staying power?”

Now, in the year 2017 the answer to that question will be very clear as the band release their FIFTH studio album, FEARLESS! Additionally, their best-selling “Live In Belgium” album and video proves to the world that Jim Peterik and Toby Hitchcock and the powerful Pride Of Lions band is not just a studio concoction, but a live force to be reckoned with, headlining shows in America and Europe.

“We are always trying to top ourselves,” states singer/ songwriter/ guitarist Jim Peterik. “This time I went back and listened closely to all the previous albums to hear the strongest assets of each record: what was working and what could be improved. I went into writing the FEARLESS material keeping that in mind. I feel it sticks closer to the template we set with our first release, yet goes to new places musically as well like using a Kansas style fiddle played by Andrew Ohlrich – on the video/single “All I See is You”.”

The songs and performances on FEARLESS are…well… truly fearless. The title track blazes from the speakers gaining steam with every chorus. “Take the highest ground – stand and fight- you gotta be harder – you gotta be tougher – you gotta be – fearless!” This could be the new battle cry for Rocky Balboa or any common man needing to make a difference in the world.

“When I got together with Jim in Chicago to record, things just caught fire,” enthuses Toby. “I sang 12 vocals in two days! That’s how inspired I was with the new material.”

“Toby hit new heights on this one,” raves Jim. “I was sitting behind the recording console with Larry Millas just one big goose bump as Toby glided from hard rockers like “Rising Up”, classic melodic rock like “All I See Is You” to a heartfelt ode to timeless love – “Everlasting Love.”

Future classics include “The Tell”, where the main character is giving off signals she may not even realize to the mesmerizing magic of “Silent Music” (“I can’t help it if I talk funny – I can’t express the way I feel in spoken words – hold on”) to the mysterious “Freedom of the Night”. That last one was written with former Jimi Jamison keyboardist Hal Butler and the lyric, chord changes and melody seem to channel what Jimi might now be singing if his life had not been tragically cut short.

“The last track is one of my faves,” states Toby Hitchcock. “I think we all can relate to the often painful process of figuring out just who we are and how we fit on this planet. “Unmasking the Mystery” is not something that happens all at once – it happens over time and on our last day we still won’t have all the answers.”

The album will be supported by live dates – in the States and abroad with the first show on January 28th as a part of Jim Peterik’s World Stage at Wentz Hall in Naperville, Illinois.

In early 2017, expect the premiere of the music video for “All I See Is You” directed by Greg Bizzarro. Greg has directed every POL video thus far, as well as the popular “Cold Blooded” video by Peterik / Scherer which starred Leann Marie of “I Can’t Hold Back” video fame.

So crank it up! The louder the better, after all “You gotta be fearless!!!”
