Here, in the halls of Rock is the New Roll, we are not typically fans of Frontiers Records and their record by numbers approach to recording their albums, but we may need to change our tune after spending some time with this song from Tommy DeCarlo. There is a serious mid ‘80s Boston, Foreigner, Journey vibe going on here that is very pleasing to our ears.
With a somewhat dubious relationship with Frontier Records, a label that brings old and new rockers together to put out formula-laden records releasing one and done albums that the bands rarely tour behind, may have hit on one this time. Featuring former members of Tom Petty, Rascall Flatts and Chicago the band Radio Generation is bringing back 80’s Rock in the Journey, Night Ranger, Whitesnake mold. Color our ears perked up.
We are not exactly sure that the world actually needs a new Bon Jovi record, especially now that Richie Sambora is no longer with the band, but on May 15th we will find out for sure.
It’s official, AOR, Album Oriented Rock is never a bad thing. After all who doesn’t love Night Ranger, Toto, and Journey. Here, the premier gate-keepers of the flame lay down their new single.
If you like Steve Perry era Journey then Revolution Saints is your Jam. Here is the latest video from their new record.
If you long for the glory days of Night Ranger, Def Leppard, and Journey, and let’s be honest, who doesn’t, then RevolutionSaints and this old-school video is definitely your jam.
A nice slice of AOR pie on Decarlo’s latest.
If you are a fan of 80’s AOR Rock in The mold of Night Ranger, Europe, or Foreigner, then this is your jam.
Sure, these guys would have been huge in the 80’s alongside Eddie Money, but to our ears they are pretty retro cool right now, in 2019.
The classic rock meets the Tran Siberian Orchestra operatic bombast of this group should come as no surprise as lead singer Nathan James was with the band for many years before the formation of Inglorious. The new record, Ride to Nowhere, should be one of the Rock records of the year.
