Hailed by the international metal scene for their 2011 debut Man Or Machine (Sonic Attack Records) and for their celebrated appearances at various European festivals, ALPHA TIGER has quickly become one of Germany’s hottest heavy metal newcomers. Due to epic compositions, catchy hooks and Stephan Dietrich’s powerful vocals (which are reminiscent of QUEENSRYCHE’s Geoff Tate and HELLOWEEN’s Michael Kiske in their heyday), the band succeeded in living up to the positive feedback and is now ready to unleash their new album, Beneath The Surface!
All lyrical topics on Beneath The Surface are represented in the stunning cover artwork, which was created by Hungarian designer Peter Tikos (who also worked with the band on the Man Or Machine cover). Beneath The Surface was recorded this past summer at Berlin’s Musicflash studio, engineered by Mirco Godi Hildmann, and mixed and mastered by Andreas Hilbert. See below for the worldwide release dates for the album:

For almost 40 years now KROKUS has stood for high-quality, honest-to-goodness, hand-made power rock. No other Swiss rock band sells albums and its back catalogue worldwide like KROKUS. The band has already sold over 14 million records, toured the world and received gold and platinum record awards including the USA and Canada. The milestones in their rock career are dotted around the world: from Australia and the USA to Mexico, Russia, Japan and China
But it hasn’t all been one long “high”: death, sickness and internal strife have pushed the band to the brink of collapse. The story of KROKUS is like no other. Dotted with highs and lows, sell-out stadium concerts and sweaty club gigs, these five musketeers of rock have outlasted trends and survived treacherous US managers, tough splits, bad deals, shady lawyers, drugs, awful fast food, endless bus trips, disco, grunge, grotesque record companies and double-dealing advisors.
Today they are back in their classic line-up plus Mandy Meyer and are stronger than ever on their new album “DIRTY DYNAMITE”. Guest musician Kosta Zafiriou plays drums on the entire album. The band spent a whole two years working on the new album under the watchful eye of bassist and original founder Chris Von Rohr. “We didn’t spend all that time on golf courses or tennis courts. No, we just wanted to make the best album yet, the magnum opus of the new KROKUS era” says the hit producer. Guitarist Mark Kohler has this to add: “This is not just another KROKUS” album. I think we have definitely passed another rock milestone with this record”.
To reach this goal, no expense was spared. The band booked into the legendary Abbey Road Studios in London. KROKUS went back to their roots, back to where it all began with the Stones, the Beatles, the Free, the Who and the Bluesbreakers. Back to where the band headlined concerts in the Hammersmith Odeon, celebrating their first international success. “The atmosphere there is very special and we wanted to make the most of that”, says vocalist Marc Storace. Guitarist Fernando Von Arb is quick to add: “With DIRTY DYNAMITE we have recorded the urgently needed dirty kind of rock that no one plays in this country”.

Standby Records President Neil Sheehan developed the rollout for the single, “Here With You’ seems like the perfect way for Standby Records to kick off the summer! Its addictive hook and passionate lyrics will certainly get stuck in anyone’s head, while its message just oozes the vibe of a typical budding summertime relationship. What better way could we find than to introduce Star City Meltdown to the masses than to offer this excellent song to fans for free? What better way is there to introduce the latest band to our Rock N’ Roll 2.0 movement? Click the link, and Star City Meltdown will be ‘Here With You’.”
Reuniting for round two with former Creed bassist/producer Brett Hestla (Dark New Day, Framing Hanley, Tantric), Razorblades and Hand Grenades is the follow-up to the group’s 2009 release Stick In the Eye which featured the hit single “Ready or Not”.
Star City Meltdown is comprised of singer Brad Dills, guitarist/vocalist Lukas Patterson, bassist Cody Cupp, drummer Dean Andrews Jr. and guitarist Chris Stewart, whom as one of the original members in Black Veil Brides, co-wrote the smash hit “Knives and Pens” which has garnered over 40 million views on You Tube.

“END TO THE LIES”
FIRST MUSIC HEARD FROM THE GROUNDBREAKING BAND’S FIRST STUDIO ALBUM IN EIGHT YEARS
ALBUM SET TO BE RELEASED AUGUST 2011 ON CAPITOL RECORDS
JANE’S ADDICTION yesterday (April 7) gave their fans the chance to be the first to hear music from THE GREAT ESCAPE ARTIST, their first new studio album in eight years.
The band’s singer Perry Farrell, guitarist Dave Navarro and drummer Stephen Perkins are giving away a free download of the final mix of ”End To The Lies” exclusively at their website: www.janesaddiction.com. THE GREAT ESCAPE ARTIST will be released this August on Capitol Records (exact date TBA).
An early, unfinished version of “End To The Lies” leaked last Wednesday (March 30) in Chile when Farrell made an appearance on the “La Ley D Rock” program on the Chilean radio station Radio Futuro, after which the song became an instant viral sensation.
JANE’S ADDICTION were in Chile as one of the headliners of the inaugural Lollapalooza Chile, which took place last weekend (April 2-3) in Santiago’s O’Higgins Park. See band photos below and this New York Times story:
For THE GREAT ESCAPE ARTIST, JANE’S ADDICTION are working with producer Rich Costey (Muse, Franz Ferdinand, Interpol), with TV on the Radio‘s Dave Sitek on the team. Sitek, best known for his production work on TV on the Radio, Yeah Yeah Yeahs and the Foals, is writing, programming, and playing bass on the album. The band, with Chris Cheney on bass, will be touring throughout 2011 (see preliminary dates below).
Forming in 1985 in L.A., JANE’S ADDICTION as been firmly embedded in the collective pop culture consciousness for 25 years now. Perry Farrell stands out as one of music’s most forward-thinking and enigmatic frontmen. Dave Navarro remains a veritable guitar god. Drummer Stephen Perkins’ tribal stomp has also influenced a generation of percussionists. The hugely influential Los Angeles-based band has sold in excess of seven million records in the U.S. alone. When lead singer Perry Farrell created the traveling Lollapalooza festival, it galvanized the alternative rock movement and brought it to a whole new level.
JANE’S ADDICTION have written the rule book for alternative music and culture through a combination of genre-defying classic songs and a cinematic live experience. Great bands break rules, but legends write their own.
See below for a handful of current JANE’S ADDICTION tour dates:
04/08 México, DF – Foro Sol
04/30 Dallas, TX – Edgefest
05/01 Houston, TX – Buzzfest
