New music…ANIMAL DRIVE

Frontiers has had an ongoing successful working relationship with the one and only Jeff Scott Soto for many years now, so when JSS put a band in front of them and told them they HAD TO HEAR IT, they turned up the volume, leaned back, and awaited what would soon wash over their ears. What immediately stood out was the way the singer had such a commanding presence of the hard rock songs that were being performed. So, a conversation was started and a deal has been struck. Frontiers Music Srl is now very pleased to introduce the world to ANIMAL DRIVE, a young and driven hard rock band founded in Zagreb, Croatia in 2012 by singer Dino Jelusic, who is the primary writer and driving force behind the band’s sound. Dino was chosen by the late, great Paul O’Neill to tour as a featured vocalist on Trans-Siberian Orchestra’s most recent U.S. tour, which is how he crossed paths with Soto and which would ultimately lead to them becoming labelmates.

ANIMAL DRIVE’s line-up is completed by guitarists Ivan Keller and Alen Luke (who unleash a ferocious twin guitar attack on the listener), Damjan Milekovic on bass, and Adrian Boric on drums. Influenced by legendary bands such as Whitesnake and Skid Row with progressive rock and metal elements from Dream Theater thrown in the mix, Animal Drive take their listeners on a wild ride of hard rock bombast.

Dino says: “I am more than delighted and excited to be part of Frontiers’ machine, the label that Animal Drive’s music can relate to in so many aspects, from classic rock, progressive metal, heavy metal, hard rock… Our music contains everything that Frontiers holds right now, and some of the bands that are our biggest influences are signed to the label, which makes us even more excited. Can’t wait to share material we have been working on for almost a year now, and can’t wait to kick ass!”

The band’s debut album is expected to be released in late 2017/ early 2018 with a tour in support of the release to follow.

NAZARETH sign with Frontiers for new album due 2018

Frontiers Music Srl is excited to announce the signing of legendary rockers NAZARETH to the label for the release of a brand new studio album in 2018!

nazareth

The current line-up of the band consists of Jimmy Murrison (longest serving guitarist in the band’s history), Lee Agnew (drummer since Darrel Sweet’s death in 1999), Pete Agnew (founding member, on bass) and new singer Carl Sentance (who joined the band in 2015 after Dan McCafferty had to retire due to illness).

Pete Agnew says, “with Carl as our brand new singer and Frontiers as our brand new record company, the buzz surrounding us right now is the same as it was when we went in to record our very first album. Can’t wait for the sparks to fly!“

Originally coming together as The Shadettes in 1968 in Dunfermline, Scotland, the entity known as Nazareth came together in spring 1970 and released their eponymous debut album in 1971. The band came to prominence after the release of the Roger Glover (Deep Purple, Rainbow) produced “Razamanaz” in 1973. Two more successful releases, “Loud ‘n’ Proud” and Rampant, followed before the release of “Hair of the Dog” in 1975, which was an unqualified success. The title track was a staple of ’70s rock radio and the ballad “Love Hurts” is a worldwide hit.

Nazareth mantained a solid sales history during the ’80s, particularly in Germany, where “Dream On” became a hit single. A tribute of note to the band came in 1993 when Guns N’ Roses covered “Hair of the Dog” on their “The Spaghetti Incident?” album.

To date, Nazareth has recorded 23 studio albums, earning them platinum, gold, and silver awards around the world. Their latest release, “Rock n’ Roll Telephone” was released in 2014 and generally hailed by music critics as another masterpiece in a long line of them from the band.

Frontiers is honored to be part of this legendary band’s rock ‘n roll legacy and looks forward to releasing another great slice of classic hard rock from Nazareth!

MASON HILL sign with Frontiers

Another good signing by Frontiers, as Mason Hill sound impressive and will sit nicely with fellow label mates Inglorious and Big Foot. Some good classic hard rock bands in the UK right now with the aforementioned bands plus Bad Touch and the more bluesy Albany Down & Broken Witt Rebels,

Frontiers Music Srl is excited to announce the signing of Glasgow based hard rockers Mason Hill for a multi album deal!

The band are truly a hot property right now! From winning the Highway To Hell UK battle of the bands competition, appearing at Ramblin’ Man Fair, Hard Rock Hell and supporting Inglorious – this is a group very much in demand! Speaking of Inglorious, Mason Hill will open for them at their Inglorious “II” album release show at Islington Assembly Rooms next Friday, May 19th. This will be Mason Hill’s first appearance in London.
The Scottish quintet’s blend of classic meets modern hard rock results in a batch of uncompromising riffs accompanied by anthemic sing along choruses and stadium friendly ballads. Their high energy live shows impress wherever they play, and they display the swagger and confidence of a band that has being doing it for decades.
The band was originally formed in 2013 by two school friends, vocalist/guitarist Scott Taylor and lead guitarist James Bird, with drummer Craig McFetridge being the first to join the ranks. After a few personnel changes, bassist Matthew Ward settled into the role in 2015, with guitarist Marc Montgomery completing the current line-up in 2016 – allowing Taylor to concentrate solely on vocals.
Mason Hill spent the next few years “learning their craft” on stages up and down the UK touring circuit. This included some high profile shows supporting the likes of Graham Bonnet (ex Rainbow), Snakecharmer (feat. ex-Whitesnake, Thunder, & Wishbone Ash members), Toseland and Marco Mendoza (Whitesnake, Thin Lizzy, Ted Nugent, Dead Daisies).
In December 2015, the band released their debut E.P, the self titled ‘Mason Hill’, featuring four tracks that highlighted exactly why this band are turning heads – outstanding songs that demonstrate a maturity far beyond their years. Recorded at The Foundry Music Lab with Sandy Jones (Wet Wet Wet) in the producer’s chair, the E.P has been critically acclaimed amongst the music press and fans alike.
The band says, “We are so happy to announce this record deal with Frontiers and we can’t wait to share in the opportunities that it will present us. We are absolutely thrilled to be hitting the studio later in the year to begin recording our debut album.”
You can get a taste of the band via this live video of “Out Of Reach”:
And via the single “Now You See Me”:
Expect the new album to be available in the first half of 2018!

New Studio Album “Inglorious II” 12th May 2017

“This band are actually glorious! Amazing singer, amazing band. The best British band I’ve seen since…I could say the Darkness, but I really mean Led Zeppelin.” – Legendary producer Kevin “Caveman” Shirley (Led Zeppelin, Aerosmith, Bon Jovi, Rush) who mixed “Inglorious II” https://youtu.be/FON64HTf0YM

“The future of rock and roll.” Paul Anthony, Planet Rock radio

Frontiers Music Srl are pleased to announce the release of the second Inglorious album, “Inglorious II”, on May 12, 2017! The band have also announced their new guitar player, who you can meet in the video below!

September 2016 saw Inglorious base themselves in Liverpool to work on the follow up to their 2016 eponymous debut album. Produced by the band and mixed by the legendary Kevin Shirley (Led Zeppelin, Aerosmith), this new album is set to further enhance the standing of this remarkable band. From the body blow riffs of “Read All About It,” to the beautiful melodies of upcoming first single “I Don’t Need Your Loving”, from the groove of “High Class Woman” to the classic feeling ballad “Making Me Pay”, this is an album that shows the bands influences stem from iconic rock and roll shrine of rock albums from the 1970s – many years before the band members were born – merged with a truly contemporary feel. Driving riffs and instant melodies all overlaid with the unique and powerful vocals of Nathan James.

Nathan James on “Inglorious II”: “It came together very organically after spending time touring together and felt great. We knew we were making an album this time too! We focused on getting our sounds just right so we could get into the studio and out in the least time possible. Between Adde’s flat in Malmö, Sweden and Colin’s family home in Somerset, England, this album came together quickly. We spent three weekends in Somerset, writing in a kind of 9-5 fashion, whereby we knew we were at work. Then after a lovely home cooked dinner we would relax, have a few beers and balance out our hard work, the environment is so important to be creative and we had it good!”

1. I Don’t Need Your Loving

2. Taking The Blame

3. Tell Me Why

Inglorious Announce New Studio Album For 2017

Inglorious Announce New Studio Album For 2017, Produced by Kevin Shirley (Led Zeppelin, Aerosmith, Bon Jovi).
UK Dates Scheduled For Nov & Dec 2016.“This band are actually glorious! Amazing singer, amazing band. The best British band I’ve seen since…I could say The Darkness, but I really mean Led Zeppelin.” – Legendary producer Kevin “Caveman” Shirley (Led Zeppelin, Aerosmith, Bon Jovi, RUSH)
2016 has been a stunning year for UK five-piece Inglorious. Their eponymous debut album was released through Frontiers Music in February. The album received widespread critical acclaim at press, multiple A lists at radio and a lauded performance on Vintage TV. The band are managed by QEDG (Yes (official), Original Asia) and booked by Steve Strange at X-Ray (live agent for Coldplay, Eminem and Queens of the Stone Age).The band have toured across the world, with numerous high profile shows across the UK and Europe – including a show stopping performances at Download Festival and Ramblin’ Man Fair, support to The Winery Dogs and The Dead Daisies, and culminating in support to Steel Panther’s European Arena tour in October 2016.

September 2016 saw the band base themselves in Liverpool and work on the follow up studio album with legendary producer Kevin Shirley www.cavemanproductions.com/biography.html
Set for release in 2017 on Frontiers Music Srl, the album is set to further push the rise of this remarkable band.

Formed in February 2014, the band is fronted by Nathan James, who made a name for himself having sung for the multi-platinum selling Trans-Siberian Orchestra, and Scorpions guitar legend Uli Jon Roth. Nathan was looking for like-minded musicians that desired to make incredible rock music in a very honest fashion. For the debut album, Nathan thought to himself, “Why are those classic albums so awesome?” He realised it was because “the musicians were recording in an organic way; they could track it live and capture amazing energy.”

The band is lineup completed by rhythm guitarist Wil Taylor, lead guitarist Andreas Eriksson, bassist Colin Parkinson, and drummer Phil Beaver. Wil, from the Northeast of England, is the youngest member of the band whose heroes include Mark Tremonti (Alter Bridge), Joe Satriani and Steve Lukather (Toto).

The same albums that have inspired generations of musicians and performers are noticeably evident when you listen to the Inglorious debut album. This is the music they were born to play together – inspired by bands in the classic rock genre as diverse as
Deep Purple, Led Zeppelin, Whitesnake/David Coverdale, Bad Company, Aerosmith, and The Rolling Stones, to name a few.

Good to see this talented young band go from strength to strength. Really looking forward to hearing more new music from this band…

After racking up a plethora of glowing reviews for this year’s self-titled debut album, British hard rockers INGLORIOUS recently stormed Download Festival and proved what others who had seen them play live before already knew: they put on an AMAZING live show

“After playing to what the crew said looked like 15,000 people, we were high as a kite. No feeling or buzz I have ever had in my life will compete with that immense feeling of pride and happiness,” says frontman Nathan James. And indeed the crowd definitely seemed to adore what the band offered. Download  highlights are set to air at 9pm local time on the 25th and 26th of June on Sky Arts in the UK, but a snippet of the band’s performance can be seen here prior to that: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HQY1wxn12l8
