Snakes In Paradise - promo live band pic - 2016 - #MO99977ILMF

Frontiers Music Srl is pleased to announce the signing of SNAKES IN PARADISE to the label for the release of a new album in early 2017!

Snakes In Paradise are a Stockholm based band which melds a powerful mixture of influences of 70’s era British Hard Rock with American AOR and a blues-y singer who really sings from the soul with five amazing musicians and world-class production!

With three original studio albums under their belt released at the end of the 90’s and early 00’s, the band has recently reunited, playing live at the Rockweekend Festival in Stockholm last February, and now they are ready to unleash a brand new album!

“And it was until this day, that the rumors became true… There will be a new SNAKES IN PARADISE album,” says singer Stefan Berggren. ”With our old albums taking a life of their own we have to thank all the fans and people who made it happen. Guess the hard work paid off in the end. And for the first time we are all in alignment with the right time to release it, with record label Frontiers Music Srl. And we believe it is the right label for our music. The new record will be in the shops in the beginning 2017. Stay tuned!!”

Dealing with the aftermath of his accident, Thane, a telecommunications subcontractor, has health insurance but due to his extensive injuries Thane is out of work for an extended period of time and needed to file for Short Term Disability.

Channeling Traditional Heavy Metal leads into their classic early Punk Rock approach, ZEX‘s Fight For Yourself drops ten insatiably infectious and fully unruly anthems, the album recorded at Meatlocker Studio with Paul Yogi Granger in Ottawa and mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege in Portland. With a solid fan base and buzz already going for them due to heavy widespread touring and a diehard worth ethic, the band independently released Fight For Yourself in Canada, which caught the attention of Magic Bullet Records, who officially re-released Fight For Yourself with proper distribution to the international masses.

Fight For Yourself is available worldwide through Magic Bullet Records on CD, LP, and digital download; physical copies can be obtained HERE, and the digital HERE.

WHITFORD/ST. HOLMES: BRAD WHITFORD & DEREK ST. HOLMES – ANNOUNCE NEW STUDIO ALBUM ‘REUNION’ AVAILABLE EVERYWHERE JUNE 3RD via MAILBOAT RECORDS

Fiery First Track “Shapes” To Be Released May 9th

U.S. TOUR WITH WHITESNAKE THIS SUMMER

Stops include, Dallas, Houston, Detroit, Philadelphia, NYC and beyond

_________________________

(Los Angeles, CA – April 12, 2016) The dynamic duo of Whitford/St. Holmes are ready to reunite and reclaim the rock magic they first produced over thirty years ago! Featuring Aerosmith guitarist, Brad Whitford and Ted Nugent vocalist/guitarist, Derek St. Holmes, the duo of Whitford/St. Holmes is back together and ready to release their exciting new studio album this June, with a nationwide tour immediately following.

It was 1981 when Whitford, who had left Aerosmith, first teamed up with Derek St. Holmes to release their self-titled debut. Tracks like “Sharpshooter” and “Whisky Woman” carried on the stadium rock n roll style that made them famous. The album received critical acclaim and they did a successful round of tour dates before returning to their respective bands and shelving the duo. Until now!

Recently, the two friends found themselves living in the same town on the outskirts of Nashville. While working on some catch up time, they decided to revamp their collaboration. After writing a number of songs, the duo recruited bassist Chopper Anderson, keyboardist Buck Johnson and on drums, Tesla’s Troy Luccketta to record the album. Self-produced by Whitford and St. Holmes, the album was recorded at The Castle Studios in Franklin, TN.

Whitford and St. Holmes, who have collectively been part of 10s of millions of record sales as part of Aerosmith and Ted Nugent, know the true purpose of their art. “It’s hard to believe we first jammed over 30 years ago,” states Brad Whitford. Derek St. Holmes adds,“ We are excited for this record to get out there, we want to share it with our friends, all those hardcore rock ‘n’ roll fans… Like our fans and good Whiskey we all seem to get better with age. These new cuts are bold, brassy and ballsy we can’t wait to play them live.”

The band will head out on tour this June with Whitesnake. The tour launches on June 3rd in Dallas and continues on through Texas, Indianapolis, Ohio, Detroit, Boston and more. This leg of the tour will conclude on July 1st with a headline show. More Whitford/St. Holmes headline shows are expected to be announced shortly.
