EVERGREY are currently working on new music. More to be announced soon.

VALENTINE: RELEASES SECOND SINGLE FROM UPCOMING ‘DEMOS FROM THE ATTIC’ ALBUM

New York City cult AOR heroes VALENTINE have released their new single, “Heart of the City” as a precursor to their upcoming Demos From the Attic collection, which is scheduled for the end of July through 20th Century Music / Vanity Music Group.  

Recorded in the early 90’s and intended to be included on the follow up to their Giant Records debut, the single, along with a plethora of other demos were stored away, seemingly forever until 20th Century kept approaching them about “any released material they may have.”  Persistence pays off.  Both guitarist, Adam Holland and bassist, Gerard Zappa suddenly remembered that they actually did have unreleased demos stored away in attics.  

Adam Holland states “We all feel very good about it. It turns out we found gems instead of skeletons! We are proud of all of the many chapters of this band’s life as both Valentine and Open Skyz. This is Valentine’s second album if it would have come out in the 80s. It would have been an awesome sophomore album and it’s pretty cool to listen to these now. The whole process has been a lot of fun.”

Guests on Band Forever thus far include: 

Gerard Zappa and Craig Pullman of Valentine
Joey Cassata of Zo2 and Zrock 
Keith Douglass of Tora Tora
Reggie Wu of Heaven’s Edge
Michael Staertow of Lou Gramm / Slaughter
Rob Hoffman of In The Pink and manager of Extreme and Ratt

DREAM DROP – Released 4th single & video from the upcoming album…

The trans genre group Dream Drop have released the single Reckless Demon Youth which is the 4th one from their upcoming album to be released later this year. 
“Reckless Demon Youth is basically about calming down. It’s about wanting to end a destructive lifestyle and reaching out for help. I think as musicians we are often drawn into the cliché of the ‘broken artist’ and it might be because sad people are drawn to music as opposed to music drawing people into sadness but regardless we have to fight it. The term ‘Demon Youth’ is taken from the lyrics of Juice Wrld’s song ‘Legends’ which talks about the lost lives of musicians who couldn’t stop.” //Dream Drop

Bio:

Dream Drop is a trans-genre band from Gothenburg, Sweden that thinks band bios are cringe and that bands should never talk themselves up as much as most of them do. Listen to the music and make up your own mind about what they’re like.
