Midnite City - Midnite City (2017)



Release: 20 October 2017

MIDNITE CITY were formed in January 2017 by current Tigertailz front-man (and former Vega, Steevi Jaimz and Teenage Casket Company member and songwriter) Rob Wylde.

Armed with an album's worth of material written under the working title of MIDNITE CITY, Wylde approached friend Pete Newdeck (Newman/ Eden's Curse, Blood Red Saints) to produce three songs forhim to shop to record labels.

Wylde sang, played guitar and bass on the recordings whilst Newdeck played drums, provided backing vocals and took care of the production. Wylde also brought in newcomer guitarist Miles Meakin who played  guitar solos on the recordings and former band mate James Martin (Vega) who laid down keyboards on the tracks. After being mixed by Newdeck, the songs were sent to Harry Hess (Harem Scarem) who mastered them at his studio in Canada.

The songs 'Nothing's Like Losing You', 'Summer Of Our Lives' and 'Think About You' were then sent out to labels and garnered considerable interest across the board, resulting in a deal being inked with German label AOR Heaven.

With a record deal in place, Newdeck officially joined the band as drummer in the Spring of 2017, alongside Miles Meakin on guitar and Shawn Charvette on keyboards.With the line up now in place, the band began work on their debut album at PNP Productions in Tewkesbury UK, completing the recordings in June 2017.






With a sound that the band describes as 'Timeless, melodic rock/ hair metal', MIDNITE CITY cover all bases when it comes to this much loved genre of music. From ultimate feel good, party rock anthems, to brooding melodic rock monsters, to spine tingling power ballads, they are all here in abundance, and then some.

With an album release being planned for October20th,  2017, MIDNITE CITY will be taking their explosive live show out on the road throughout the UK, Europe and the USA in late 2017/ 2018.

Code Red - Incendiary (2017)



Lead singer Ulrick Lönnqvist initially started out with the band Sahara who released a self-titled album in 2001 on AOR Heaven. Since then he has mainly been working as a song-writer and co-writer for different bands all around Sweden, i.e. with Hal Marabel (Bad Habit), Morgan Jensen (Swedish Erotica), Jake E (Amaranthe), Michael Palace (Palace) and Andreas Gullstrand (Creye) to name a few. So the seed to the new project and band CODE RED was planted many years ago in fact, when colleagues and partners became close friends.

During 2016 while Lönnqvist was co-writing songs for the new albums with Jim Jidhed, Creye, Mad Invasion and Find Me, producer Daniel Flores (The Murder Of My Sweet, Find Me) approached to him and suggested that he really should record an album of his own. It was never Lönnqvist's ambition to be a solo artist, but Flores convinced him and wanted to produce the album. The singer teamed up with co-writers Morgan Jensen (Swedish Erotica) and Michael Palace (Palace, Big Time), and along with lead guitarist Oscar Bromvall (Palace, Erika) and keyboard player Kaspar Dahlqvist (Shadowquest, Dionysus) the line-up was complete. CODE RED was born.
 

 


It felt like a natural step to approach Georg Siegl at AOR Heaven, and he believed in the songs and CODE RED right from the start. The band recorded their debut album during the spring of 2017 at Sound vs. Science in Stockholm under the direction of producer Daniel Flores and Ulrick Lönnqvist. It was a pure labor of love, resulting in the melodic rock album titled “Incendiary”.

CHILDRENN - International Exit (2017)


Release: 20 October 2017

CHILDRENN are back, International Exit is their second album, produced by Randall Dunn.

“A musical venture into the dim depths of mankind and the fear mongering of modern day politics”.

CHILDRENN who consist of members who have played with well-known Danish acts such as Sort Sol, Psyched Up Janis, Kloster, and Baby Woodrose followed up their debut album, working with one of the most respected producers in modern alternative music, Randall Dunn.
Dunn has produced albums for such diverse acts as SunnO))), Earth, Wolves In The Throne Room, Six Organs Of Admittance, and Marissa Nadler .

After mixing CHILDRENN’s first album, this time, Randall Dunn flew to Copenhagen and recorded and produced the album in full, at Black Tornado Studios, Copenhagen, mixing it at Avast! Studios, Seattle.

The result is 10 tracks of fiery and glum rock music with influences from 70’s psychedelic rock, kraut rock, black metal, 60’s folk and so much more.

The lyrics, are inspired by the current state of the world, seemingly going down the drain, which is
also reflected in the almost apocalyptic title: “International Exit”.




Vocalist and lyricist Jakob Brixen explains:

“When we wrote the songs for International Exit, Manoj and I were both filled with a mood of demise, which I think emanated from some tendencies and scaremongering in the current zeitgeist that has affected us a lot.
A feeling that everything could fall apart around us. A feeling of anxiety on a personal level and on a political and global level. This is also reflected in the lyrics that revolve around an underlying theme of collapse with elements of decadence, profane madness, self-destruction, denial, anger, deep darkness and longing for deliverance.”


Their debut album “Animale” was released in 2016, and was critically acclaimed, internationally and domestically.  The band has performed at festivals such as Roskilde, Northside and Copenhagen Psych Festival in addition to a bunch of more intimate live shows.

CHILDRENN also performed at the Danish showcase: Spot Festival, where Rolling Stone Magazine legend David Fricke watched their blistering show and had them on his personal top 5 for that festival.

“International Exit” will be released on Mighty Music on October 20th 2017 on CD, LP and digital
