Atlantic was the brainchild of guitarist and songwriter Simon Harrison.

Following a successful ghost-writing career and his bands Stranger and Wisht, Simon wanted to make an album in his favoured AOR/Melodic Rock genre. Heavily influenced by bands like Whitesnake, Journey, Bad English, FM and Dare he set about writing the songs that became the first album entitled ‘Power’. Atlantic was never supposed to be a long term band and following its worldwide release Simon moved on to other writing, recording, production and mix projects.

 In the late nineties Simon met Mark Grimmett. He recorded several songs with Mark over the following few years and they decided at some point they would make a record together. Fast forward to 2021 Mark was talking to Simon about writing and recording a new album.

Originally entitled the MGB Band, work started in the fall of 2021 … By early 2022 they had written a number of songs and they both felt they would best suit a new album under the Atlantic banner. Several members of Grim Reaper were recruited to give the Album an edge, whilst retaining the essential melodic rock/Aor feel that is Atlantic. Mark Pullin, Julian D.Hill and Ian Nash were duly recruited into the band along with keyboardist Gareth David Noon from Serpentine .. The lineup was to change later in the project with Simon and Tim Bristow taking over the keyboard role and the addition of Nick Burr and Andy Margrett on lead guitar. Work continued over the next year and finally the production was completed in late 2023. Mark Pullin stepped up to mix the album after some unforeseen issues at Simon’s studio and it was completed in March 2024. Escape Music had re released the original Power album and were absolutely the first choice to work with on the new album.

 Their new album “Another World” will be released exclusively by Escape Music, exciting times.


Sneakout Records & Burning Minds Music Group are pleased to announce the signing with My Darkest Red for the release of their debut album, scheduled after the summer.

My Darkest Red is a new dark'n'roll band founded by musicians from two early 2000s bands, Poisonheart and Dreamhunter. This new project features a powerful mix of classic hard'n'heavy, inspired by rock icons such as Alice Cooper, Ozzy Osbourne and Iron Maiden, combined with dark wave elements that recall the decadent atmospheres of The Sisters Of Mercy, HIM and The 69 Eyes; the lyrics draw from horror classics and the works of gothic authors. 

Further info about the official release date, final tracklist, album title and cover artwork will be revealed in the forthcoming weeks.

Fabio Perini: Lead & backing vocals, rhythm guitar
