Black Star Riders to release new studio album “Another State of Grace” on September 6th 2019

Nuclear Blast are delighted to announce the release of Black Star Riders new studio album “Another State of Grace” on September 6th, 2019.

The band will support the record with a full UK and Ireland tour in October 2019 with additional dates in other territories to be announced in the near future.

You can also get their new single “Another State of Grace”, here.

H.E.A.T to release “Live at Sweden Rock Festival” will be released on July 26th 2019

If there is one hard rock band you need to see live, H.E.A.T should make the top of your list.

Singer Erik Grönwall’s striking charisma paired with the powerful energy created by the band makes every H.E.A.T concert an extraordinary experience. This was also true for the performance at Sweden Rock festival on June 7th, 2018 which followed their highly acclaimed studio album “Into the Great Unknown” (2017) (which Classic Rock UK praised as “the most complete album of their career”).

Hardline - Life

Well, Hardline started pretty much as a band of the two Gioeli brothers and through the years has featured some fine musicians, including misters Castronovo & Schon best know from Journey, as well as Josh Ramos and Joey Tafola, among others. Still in recent years, the band has revolved around Johnny Gioeli, who was rather busy this past year and Alessandro Del Vecchio, a guy who writes, arranges and produces a ton of stuff for Frontiers, the label that Hardline belongs to.
 

Fortune - II

Fortune… a band that’s been a going concern since before I was born in the tail end of the seventies and a band that with its “definite” lineup would be responsible for one of the best, if not the best AOR/Melodic Rock albums of all time with their eponymous 1985 effort.
 
Now, knowing how good that album is, it’s almost impossible to top it, but I half expected the band to come close to how good they were. Obviously more than 30 years have passed since then but time, what is time?! Really…
 

Find Me

Hi Robbie – I’m glad to have you on Grande Rock. Congrats on “Angels in Blue”, I think it’s the best Find Me release so far! The album has also been chosen as the “Best of Month” on Grande Rock!
 
R: Thank you so much, it’s much, much appreciated!
