Frontiers Records is truly excited to announce the signing of DANGER DANGER for the release of a brand new studio album during 2008!
Formed in 1987 by Bruno Ravel and Steve West, and rounded out by Ted Poley, Andy Timmons and Kasey Smith, it didn’t take long for the band to be noticed by Epic Records’ Lennie Petze, the guy who had earlier discovered Boston, Cyndi Lauper and Aldo Nova, to name a few. Released in 1989, the self-titled release struck gold.
After releasing another amazingly successful album such as “Screw It” in 1991, D2 recorded a third disc for Sony entitled “Cockroach” which, due to legal wrangling, wouldn’t see the light of day until eight years later. Upon completion of the album, the band parted ways with lead singer Ted Poley. Needing a replacement, friend and former Elektra recording artist, Canadian Paul Laine stepped in, releasing “Dawn” as the band’s independent album in 1995. Two more successful studio albums came out later: “Four The Hard Way”, the band’s triumphant return to the original melodic rock roots, and “The Return Of The Great Gildersleeves”, both greeted with stellar reviews from critics and fans the world over, further helping cement the band’s reputation.
2004 saw the official return in the line-up of the original singer Ted Poley after an 11 year absence and this forthcoming album will be the band’s first studio effort with Ted since the “Cockroach” sessions! “”We are very excited to be recording with Ted again, as I know our fans are, as well”, says drummer Steve West who announces that “the new one will be a true Danger Danger record: a present for the fans who will surely be pleased”. DANGER DANGER line-up today includes also the other original member Bruno Ravel and guitarist Rob Marcello.
The band is looking forward to enter the studio, right after the special gig that DANGER DANGER will play in Ludwigsburg, Germany at the UNITED FORCES OF ROCK FESTIVAL next Sunday, September the 30th, where they will perform together with JOE LYNN TURNER, STAN BUSH, WHITE WOLF, SOUL DOCTOR, LAST AUTUMN’S DREAM and HUMAN ZOO.
“We’re looking to have the record finished by the end of the year and we’re also looking forward to meet all our European fans in Germany” concludes Steve West!
So be there and let’s all wait the new year to rock again with DANGER DANGER!
