BREAKING NEWS: In celebration of the band’s 25th Anniversary, Frontiers Music Srl is pleased to announce the release of TYKETTO‘s brand new album “Reach” on October 14th.

After five years of relentless touring that included playing on some of the most prestigious stages on the planet, Tyketto (The Official) took their revitalized energy in to the studio in the spring of 2016. The sessions took place at the legendary Rockfield Studios in Wales (Queen, RUSH, Oasis). Musically the band is truly at the top of their game, with their muscular brand of Melodic Rock delivered with the finest arrangements and awesome performances.

Lead vocalist Danny Vaughn comments, “Although we only had planned on recording ten songs for REACH, we were so pleased with everything, we decided to keep all twelve songs on the record. We unanimously decided on REACH as the title of the album, as it defines who this band is in 2016. We have a new energy, some incredible new members, and a fresh outlook toward the future. All of us have pushed each other beyond our limits to make what we feel is a pinnacle record in our catalog.”

Drummer and founding member Michael Clayton Arbeeny adds, “Many bands who have been out as long as we have felt they need to fit into a preconceived notion of what their fans expect to hear. Following in the footsteps of icons such as Queen, Led Zeppelin, and Prince, we have decided to expand our musical boundaries and introduce our friends around the world to Tyketto 2016. Rest assured that all the songs on REACH still carry the trademark melodies and choruses our fans have grown to love over the decades. The band is feeling stronger and performing better than ever and we can’t wait to share this music with the world.”

In addition to Vaughn and Arbeeny, the unstoppable 2016 lineup includes Chris Green (guitars and vocals), Ged Rylands (keyboards and vocals) and Chris Childs (bass).

A video for the title track, “Reach,” will be released soon. An 11 country tour to support the album commences in October. Dates are below.

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!!”

Thane Farace - injured - April 24 - 2016 - Rabid Assassin - #MO99099ILMFM

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. Upon filing, he found out that his Short Term Disability was never renewed for 2016.

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.
