Frontiers Records is pleased to announce the release of the Self-Titled debut album from the US band ACTION on December 7th 2007 !
Originally formed in 1985, Action is a long-time concept devised by acclaimed guitarist / songwriter Chip of What Matters, Mars Hill and The Hitmen. The band also features the soaring vocals of other former Mars Hill member Jack Marques, Chris Sutherland, keyboardist Ruben Demello, Chris Longo (Project Broken, Dirty Deeds, Hysteria, Promises) with additional drums from Mark Duane (Trendkill, Paradox, Action, Touch, Krankenstein).
As founder and guitarist for the band Action during the mid to late 80’s, Chip shared the stage with Quiet Riot, Firehouse, Slaughter, Rough Cutt and Zebra among many others. As the musical landscape quickly changed in the early 90’s, Action split not to be heard from again until he collaborated with singer / songwriter Jack Marques a decade later.
Between bands and life itself, both Chip and Jack had each individually written and recorded a number of outstanding melodic rock tracks over the years which ranged from 80’s rock / metal to more modern adult oriented rock. Each had always been saving these unused gems for some future project; they just weren’t sure what it would be.
What is certain, these gems are fresh, melodic power rock – true to its 80’s roots while delivering a modern kick! Action is an infusion of Boston meets Journey with touches of Whitesnake and Def Leppard. With this mix, Action delivers what rock fans have been waiting a decade or more for – screaming melodic guitars, soaring vocals, catchy choruses and rockin’ beats.
Never feeling that Action was quite finished, in mid 2006, Chip approached friend and manager Ron Vining about getting the project off the ground again. In February 2007, Action were snapped up by Frontiers Records and the album was delivered a few months later, with an artwork courtesy of Richard Mace (Journey, Soul SirkUS, Jeff Scott Soto).
Album tracklisting will include the following songs:

Just in time for All Hallows Eve, comes the latest big screen adaptation from horror master Stephen King.
Writer Mike Enslin (John Cusack) is a writer about haunted place, and is a major disbeliever in ghosts as he has never seen one.
A mysterious postcard shows up, and warns him not to enter room 1408 at the Dolphin Hotel in New York City. Of course, sending a postcard like this to a ghost hunter of sorts is like giving candy to a baby. It is inevitable that he goes to the Dolphin to check out room 1408.
After much tried mass intervention from Hotel Manager, Gerald Olin (Samuel L. Jackson), Mike Enslin checks into 1408.
What happens behind the closed hotel door will amaze you, if not completely creep you out, and a few things that may even make you jump!. It is a good story, and one that fans of Stephen King’s the Shining will likely enjoy.
1408 is the perfect movie to turn out the lights, and prepare for a good scare. Definitely rent worthy, and for horror fans, a worthy purchase.
Rating: Out of 10
