Rock Temple, the new international mail order dedicated to rock and metal music fans, in collaboration with Rocker Sound Agency & Burning Minds Music Group, is proud to announce the first official edition of its “Rock Temple Festival”, an event that promises to become a brilliant annual kermesse for all the passionate supporters of this kind of music. This edition coincides with the first official italian gig ever of one of the most beloved AOR bands… BOULEVARD! After two cult AOR releases in the late eighties, “BLVD” (1988) and “Into the Street” (1990), which gave them big exposure in their homecountry, Boulevard sadly dissolved in 1991, but finally reunited in 2014 starting to write new songs for their awaited studio come-back. The result is included in “Luminescence”, an unquestionable masterpiece of up to date melodic rock music, which is getting oustanding feedbacks from fans and critics, being already included in most of the “Top Album” lists of 2017.
ALDARIA released a new single track called “When The Time Has Come”. 100% of all income of this single will be donated to Cancer Research.
ALDARIA’s mastermind Frode Hovd comments: “This is a very important cause for me, as I lost my mother to this horrible disease in 2010.
