Multi-platinum band BOSTON is celebrating the holiday season with the release of a rocking twist on a Christmas classic titled “God Rest Ye Metal Gentlemen.” This festive song, produced by BOSTON mastermind Tom Scholz, is available today on iTunes at http://smarturl.it/BostonGodRestYe and features Kimberley Dahme on bass and lead vocal, Gary Pihl and Scholz on vocals and guitars, along with Tom Hambridge on drums. Fans can visit the band’s Facebook page, facebook.com/bandboston, for more information and how to listen to a stream of the track.
Scholz said about the song, “This was my chance to BOSTON-ize one of my favorite Christmas carols. I had so much fun with this one, I think I’ll have to try a few more.”
BOSTON is currently conquering the airwaves as “Heaven On Earth,“ the lead single from the newly released Life, Love & Hope, climbs Mediabase’s Classic Rock chart. Written and produced by Scholz, “Heaven On Earth” features David Victor on vocals with special guest Louis St. August.
More than a decade in the making, the highly anticipated new album Life, Love & Hope was released on December 3 in the U.S. and Canada and is available now for purchase at Amazon and iTunes. The collection of brand new tracks, recorded at Scholz’s very own Hideaway Studio II, was produced, arranged, and engineered by Scholz and is BOSTON’s first release since 2002’s Corporate America. In addition to Brad Delp and Victor, current BOSTON singer Tommy DeCarlo, Kimberley Dahme and Scholz himself, contribute vocals on the new album. Diverse yet cohesive, the long-awaited album has something for everyone and will fulfill the expectations of existing fans, while exposing a new generation to one of rock and roll’s great acts. Albums purchased at Best Buy will contain a bonus track titled “Te Quiero Mia.”
BOSTON burst onto the music scene with their eponymous best-selling debut album in 1976, and never looked back. With over 17 million copies sold, BOSTON generated hits such as “More Than a Feeling,” “Peace of Mind,” and “Smokin’,” rock staples that are still in heavy rotation today. Their second effort, Don’t Look Back was another chart-topper that confirmed their place in rock history, followed by Third Stage, which hit #1 on the charts, with the top single of 1986, “Amanda.” With over 31 million albums sold to date, BOSTON’s music has stood the test of time, as evidenced by live BOSTON audiences that span generations.
