Frontiers Records is pleased to announce the release of the highly anticipated STARBREAKER second album “Love’s Dying Wish” on August 1st 2008.
Starbreaker’s self-titled debut album caused a stir in the Hard Rock world, upon its release in spring 2005. Featuring world renowned musicians such as singer Tony Harnell (TNT, Westworld, Morning Wood), guitaristMagnus Karlsson (Allen / Lande, Primal Fear), bassist/producer Fabrizio Grossi(Glenn Hughes, House of Lords) andJohn Macaluso (Malmsteen, TNT, Ark) on drums, the record garnered enormous acclaim and was featured as the cover story on the prestigious “Rock It” magazine in Germany, with fantastic reviews World wide.
Following Harnell’s departure from TNT in 2006, Tony took a little time off the business to spend time with his family and write songs. In late 2007 he flew to Sweden to write the bulk of the songs for the new album with Karlsson and started the recording of the new songs at the end of the year. The highly anticipated brand new CD is entitled “Love’s Dying Wish” and is a true Hard Rock/Metal masterpiece. The album was written and produced by Harnell and Karlsson and was mixed by respected producer Tommy Hansen(TNT, Jorn, Pretty Maids, Helloween).
New bassist Jonni Lightfoot (a touring and recording veteran with extensive credits to his name) replaced Grossi in the line up. He has added a tasteful but aggressive touch to this magnificent piece of work and compliments Macaluso’s flashy drumming perfectly.
“Love’s Dying Wish” is a very special album that progresses from where the Starbreaker debut left off. With a fresh diversity that spans from pounding metal, to deep moody passages wrapped in a dark and beautifully melodic package. The stunning talents of Harnell and Karlsson are on display in spades with electrifying performances and stellar song writing. These two have truly developed a unique and timeless sound together. Simply brilliant, “Love’s Dying Wish” is going to blow away both old and new fans.
“Love’s Dying Wish” final tracklisting will include: End Of Alone (which can be streamed in its entirety on www.myspace.com/tonyharnellonline); Evaporate; Love’s Dying Wish; Unknown Superstar; Hide; Building A Wall; Beautiful Disaster; Live Your Life; Hello, Are You Listening?; Changes Me; The Day Belongs To Us; This Close.
