Europe’s leading melodic rock & AOR label, Frontiers Records is celebrating TWO nominations in the ‘Best Album of the Year 2011’ category of this year’s prestigious Classic Rock Magazine Roll of Honor Awards.
Journey are one of the post popular American Rock bands of all time, and this year released their album, ‘Eclipse’ on Frontiers Records to critical acclaim. With 12 brand new studio tracks, produced by Kevin Shirley (Aerosmith, Led Zeppelin, Iron Maiden), co-produced by Neal Schon & Jonathan Cain and mixed by David Kalmusky, founding member & lead guitarist Neal Schon says, “I’m in love with this record, which I haven’t said about one of our albums for a long time, it’s a rock record & it sounds amazing”.

Since their formation in 1973, Journey has earned 19 Top 40 singles and 25 gold and platinum albums. The band’s Greatest Hits album is certified 15 times platinum, bringing Journey into the elite club of Diamond-certified album holders. The group also received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame – but will they be adding a Classic Rock award to their arsenal of accolades?
Whitesnake, the legendary rock’n’roll legacy founded by renowned singer/songwriter David Coverdale this year released their 11th studio album, ‘Forevermore’ – via Frontiers Records.
David Coverdale describes the new album as “a perfect blend of all the good elements we enjoy in Whitesnake; hard rock, rhythm & blues, soul and strong melodies. I feel it embraces a consolidated musical history of the band that we have rarely achieved before, but without borrowing from the past. It’s a goon ‘un, one of our best. We are honoured, once again, to be nominated for this prestigious award”
Formed in 1977 Whitesnake carry a rightful reputation as one of the world’s leading rock’n’roll bands. Coverdale’s blues roots, combined with a passion for rock’ n’ roll, have shaped a sound that spawned a multi-platinum album in 1987, two top 10 hits & two number one singles. With over 100 Million records sold worldwide the bands ever-loyal legion of fans will be no doubt be voting for these perennial rock favorites!
Serafino Perugino, President and A&R Director of Frontiers Records is delighted by news of the nominations, “Whitesnake and Journey showed they can still come up with outstanding music that sounds fresh & exciting in this day & age. We are honoured & enthused that these two bands have been put forward for the Best Album of 2011 Award by Classic Rock magazine and we hope their fans will vote and support these nominations”
