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.

TYKETTO – Triumphs With Comeback Album “DIG IN DEEP”

Posted in classic rock, Hard Rock, hard rock albums, heavy metal news, melodic hard rock, melodic rock, Music, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , , on April 11, 2012 by Metal Odyssey

TYKETTO – While staying relevant in recent time by performing in some of the worlds most notable Heavy Rock Festivals (Sweden Rock Festival, Download, Firefest and Hard Rock Hell to name a few) TYKETTO realized their fans were still out there and a new studio album was in order. Nearly two decades since their last studio album (1995’s ShineDig In Deep will be released on April 20th (Europe) and April 24th (North America) via Frontiers Records.

What’s that I hear? As I stopped writing this review, I peered out my office window to see what all the hoopla was outside. I noticed AOR, Melodic Rock, Hard Rock and Classic Rock fans dancing in the street, with their arms stretched out to the sun-filled sky. Yes, TYKETTO is back baby… and the Melodic Rockin’ ride you’ll hear on Dig In Deep is an exclamation point on this band’s musical career. When any 80’s or 90’s Heavy Rock band wants to make a comeback again, they should be required to listen to Dig In Deep.

Are you looking for that new Hard Rock album that seamlessly flows from one song to the next, while never letting up on the ROCK that makes your soul ROLL? Dig In Deep. Have you been yearning to hear real Hard Rock vocals once again, you know, that are not sugar-coated with the carbon-copy and computer enhanced Modern Hard Rock tones? Hello, Danny Vaughn.

Let’s talk guitar. Hard Rock guitar that’s both melodic and riff-tastic. Did I mention uncontrollably memorable too? Step in, Brooke St. James. Trust me my Hard Rock brethren… TYKETTO is back, baby. Sound the Hard Rock bells of glory, tell your children this story and open the flood gates to AOR & Melodic Hard Rock euphoria, cause TYKETTO has conquered the status quo and kicked the shit out of the Melodic Hard Rock doldrums with Dig In Deep.

Rhythm section? Jimi Kennedy (bass & backing vocals) and Michael Clayton (drums) are the thunderbolt and drumfire, respectively, on this amazingly habit-forming album of melodically driven songs. Hey, I just realized, there is a band out there that does give a shit about creating the complete album of songs still. They call themselves TYKETTO, by the way. Lead single? Screw that. Try this on for size: lead album. It’s called Dig In Deep.

By the time I caught my breath, after God knows how many listen throughs of Dig In Deep I joyously endured, the realization that TYKETTO has written and recorded once again, resulting in these eleven songs, made me feel like I’ve been beamed up to Happyville U.S.A. where the beers are always free and mp3’s don’t exist. A candidate for Comeback Album Of The Year”. Hard Rock as my witness and Metal be thy name.

What’s my favorite song on Dig In Deep? It isn’t This Is How We Say Goodbye. Ballads still suck most of the time in Stone’s world. This ballad doesn’t close out Dig In Deep on a high note. Nonetheless, a finely written song that will probably make someone cry out there. Whaaaaaa! The title track, Faithless and Sound Off are my three choice-cuts on this album of choice cuts… and this new TYKETTO album has (minus that last ballad) thoroughly ROCKED MY ASS OFF.

Excuse me now… as I head out to the street to join in with the hoopla…

DIG IN DEEP – Track Listing:


Love To Love

Here’s Hoping It Hurts

Battle Lines

The Fight Left In Me

Let This One Slide

This Is How We Say Goodbye
