Frontiers Records is excited to announce the signing of WHITE LION for their first studio album in 16 years entitled “Return of The Pride”.
White Lion left its mark in the late 80’s with a series of hit singles and videos that defined the MTV generation, thanks to the likes of “Wait”, “When The Children Cry”, “Tell Me”, “Broken Heart” and “Little Fighter”. But equally so, the band was also recognized for its signature album tracks that transcended socio-political themes such as “Lady Of The Valley”, “Cry For Freedom”, “Lights N Thunder” and “Warsong”.
White Lion disbanded in 1991 and their members moved on to their own paths. In 2003 singer Mike Tramp built again the band around the talents of Jamie Law on guitar, Claus Langeskov on bass, Henning Wanner on keyboards and Troy Patrick Farrell on drums. This line-up appeared with much acclaim in such Festivals as Bang Your Head, Gods Of Metal, Sweden Rock and Rocklahoma.
And if these stand out live performances aren’t testimony enough, then the new album will surely once again assert White Lion as a legitimate musical force. The first White Lion studio record in over 16 years was recorded during 2007 in both Australia and Copenhagen and is entitled “Return of the Pride”. According to singer Mike Tramp this title could be interpreted in two ways “In a musical sense we have taken a step back in time, rather than a step forward in time. Over the course of this album lyrically and musically many concepts and themes have been explored, maybe “Return Of The Pride” means something entirely different”.
Produced by Mike Tramp and Claus Langeskov, White Lion features now a truly international line-up of musicians handpicked by Mike himself, the band will hit the road again in the summer of 2008. “We are not interested in fixing what isn’t broke. Our mission is simple, to bring the classic sound of White Lion to the people across the world that still live for that music” says Tramp stating that the band’s new album will be “classic rock in its truest form and a representation of the musical influences that have attached themselves over time”.
“Return of The Pride” will be released in Europe on Frontiers Records on March 14th 2008 with release in Japan to happen on King Records. More details about the album will be released at a later stage.
