REVIEW : Drive At Night, Echoes Of An Era (Pride & Joy Music Release: 17 June 2022)

Drive at Night was formed in 2021 by the two long-time friends and band mates Joachim Nordlund and Johan Lindstedt from Astral Doors and SunStrike. During 2021, twelve songs were written and recorded in Joachim's studio in Borlänge, Sweden, and produced by Drive At Night. The cover artwork was designed by Blekkmark Design.  

CORNERSTONE: NEW SINGLE "PRIVATE EYES" OUT NOW!

And here it is: the new Cornerstone-Single "PRIVATE EYES"! The song hits home with some very personal and sensitive topics, surrounding being stalked. Michael, who wrote the lyrics and co-wrote the song, exclaims it's "a topic which troubled me for over a year. In the beginning I found it a bit strange, to get stalked by someone, and I even had some laughs about it. During this time, it caused bad dreams and sleepless nights. There was one point, at which I've got eight incoming phone calls within an hour from the person, plus an accumulation of messages overnight”. The track, in effect, spreads awareness on controversial events happening to men.

Produced once again with HARRY HESS, who recently won a Grammy for his work at ALEX CUBA's latest album (best Latin-Pop), a few radiostations already interviewed the band prior tot he release and played the track, but of course most of the promotion will happen within the next few weeks. There is also a video in the making, but due to Covid-19, half oft he band and half oft he film team had to stay in quarantine in the week oft he shot, so it will probably take a while, before it will be finished. Also Cornerstone's day has just 24 hours.... The song is available on Spotify, iTunes and the usual platforms!

DEVICIOUS - NEW SINGER & TOUR ANNOUNCEMENT!

DeVicious is proud to present new lead singer Baol Bardot Bulsara! You may have already recognized him as the singer of the famous Norwegian Hard Rock Band “TNT”!


Baol was born in Argentina 47 years ago, has been living in Spain since he was is a young child and also is a Spanish citizen.  


Band leader Alex Frey says: “We met Baol during the recordings of our “Black Heart” album where he delivered some outstanding backing vocals to our songs. The band fell in love with Baol’s voice when he sang for the Spanish band “Strangers” (see Video) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8YCcwEz1Y-0  “When it became clear to us that Antonio won’t be able to commit to our tour schedule anymore we spoke with Antonio before we started conversations with Baol. The process of him becoming our new lead singer was rather organic since the band and the singer clicked from the start.”

Baol’s work with TNT won’t be affected by his engagement with DeVicious.
"We can’t wait to bring this on the road and record new songs for you."
