JOE BOUCHARD – Sells Out First Pressing Of ‘Strange Legends’, Second Pressing With Alternate Artwork To Come

PRESS RELEASE:

JOE BOUCHARD, FORMER MEMBER OF BLUE OYSTER CULT SELLS OUT OF FIRST PRESSING OF “STRANGE LEGENDS”. ROCKHEART RECORDS/DEKO ENTERTAINMENT RELEASE SECOND PRESSING WITH ALTERNATE ARTWORK.

Joe Bouchard is best known as a founding member of Blue Öyster Cult. The original line-up sold millions of albums for Columbia Records, with such classic songs as “(Don’t Fear) The Reaper” and the #1 hit on the Billboard Mainstream Rock chart “Burning For You”. Contributing to songwriting, and lead vocals on some of their greatest songs, such as “Hot Rails To Hell”.

Joe released his sixth solo album “Strange Legends” on July 31st though he and his brother’s (Albert Bouchard) new imprint RockHeart Records / Deko Entertainment (ADA/Warner Music Group). The album has been receiving a tremendous response around the globe and has sold out of its initial pressing.

When Deko Entertainment decided to do a repressing, they wanted to do something a little bit different to commemorate this accomplishment by issuing a slightly different version. Joe comments, “I am overwhelmed by the response to my album Strange Legends.  I knew it was good, but the fan reactions from all over the world have been tremendous.  After years of sweat and effort doing my solo albums, this one has really risen above the pack. With this second pressing of Strange Legends we have varied the artwork on the tray holder. My artist, Logan Cummings, created 11 different thumbnails for each song on the album.  The first edition had the frogman that was the art for Bottom for the Bottomless.  The second edition has the sailboat which is the art for Strangely in Love, one of my personal favorites. The team at Deko Entertainment have gone the extra mile with promotions, and it’s been an incredible ride.  Hope to play these new songs in person as soon as touring returns.”

Bouchard’s manager, Jeff Keller, added, “we have been so pleased with the fan and critic response for this album. I feel that it is Joe’s best solo work to date, and the people are loving it”.

Joe has also recorded a series of videos giving you a song by song look at “Strange Legends”, stop by and check out “The Stories Behind the Songs” on the Deko Entertainment YouTube channel.

NERGARD – Under Fire (SHY tribute) single released….

Norwegian all-star melodic metal act NERGARD is taking a break from recording the upcoming third album to pay tribute to the late Tony Mills (Shy, TNT). Mills, who sadly passed away on September 18, 2019 after battling cancer, was a legend in the melodic rock scene.


“I wanted to pay tribute to my friend Tony who was a great inspiration to me and an essential part of the Nergard camp during the early years,” says band leader Andreas Nergård. “I miss his unique songwriting skills, incredible voice and warmhearted personality. I wanted to celebrate his great career by covering one of the songs from Shy. I chose one of the deep cuts from the album Excess All Areas, called ‘Under Fire.’ The
song fits Nergard immensely and I am really proud of the version we did.”
For this tribute Andreas enlisted some top-notch vocalists; Nils K. Rue from Pagan’s Mind and Mathias Molund Indergård from Mindtech. Andi Kravljaca (Aeon Zen, Thaurorod) made his guitar debut with Nergard, handling both rhythm and lead guitars. Joining him on lead guitar is Stig Nergård (Tellus Requiem). The bass was handled by Victor Borge, who played with Tony Mills in TNT. Choir arrangements were made by David Åkesson (Qauentice) while Andreas himself handled the drums as always.
“I am so happy to have enlisted all these great musicians to join me in this tribute to the great Tony Mills,” Andreas comments. “All proceeds will go to Tony’s Children’s Cancer Cause. Tony said that no child should have to suffer like he did and I wholeheartedly support this cause.”
