In the video for “The One That You Hated,” former Guns N’ Roses drummer Steven Adler takes on destructive relationships with his new band. “The lyrics are about two people that are no good for each other, but for whatever reason won’t break up,” says frontman Jacob Bunton. “Maybe it’s the sex, maybe it’s the convenience, maybe they’re just scared to move on and start over, but a lot of people seem to be attracted to the people that they hate. Love and hate are intimately linked within the human brain.”
Although it’s an early Adler track, “Hated” was one of the last songs the band recorded for their album. “One night Slash was at the studio and we played him a couple of the songs,” reveals Bunton. “When this song started playing, he was grinning ear to ear, so we knew either it’s a kick-ass song or it’s so bad we’re making him laugh.”
For Adler, the new project is an invigoration, a fresh breath of creativity. “I love the music we’re creating!” he says. “I haven’t been this excited about my band since the GN’R days.” “Hated” is the first single off the band’s debut album, Adler. No release date has been set.
Check out the new video clip “Looking For Love” from ISSA. Issa’s new album, The Storm will be released October 14th in North America, and October 18th in Europe!
Frontiers Records is pleased to announce the worldwide release of the second ISSA album entitled “The Storm” on October 14th in Europe and October 18th in North America.
Since her debut “Sign of Angels”, the Norwegian Rock Diva has often been compared to such music stars as Celine Dion, Avril Lavigne and Amy Lee (Evanescence). Issa however has created her own style and approach to Melodic Rock, by mixing her peculiar and unique melodic sensibility with a rocking attitude which is unseen in today’s Pop singers.
Not metal and certainly not easy listening Pop, Issa’s music has everything and more to appeal to the vast masses: real rock with a commercial sheen.
Unlike the debut self-titled album, the “The Storm” has Issa taking a shot at songwriting and together with the Martin brothers (Vega, House of Lords, Khymera, Sunstorm), she offers up tracks on the new album like “Invincible”, “We’re on Fire” and “The Storm”, the album’s title track. Issa explains “The songs I wrote on this album show more of my personality and direction. Some of them have been written straight from my life and it’s exciting for me to finally show some of my own work for the first time. I knew Tom and James Martin through the last album on which they wrote some fantastic tunes. We’ve worked together a lot since then and these songs are very personal to me. “Invincible” especially is a song that I feel very close to.”
Songwriting contributions also came from Robert Säll (Work of Art), Randy Goodrum (Steve Lukather, Toto, Steve Perry), Daniel Palmqvist, Johannes Stole (Xorigin), Daniel Flores, Sören Kronqvist (Crash the System, Sunstorm), Chris Laney, Magnus Karlsson (Place Vendome) and more !
“The Storm” shows a different side of me” continues Issa. “I’ve had the most life changing year of my life and this also reflects on the new album in many ways. It’s a more honest performance from me and I think every song captures a feeling or something we all can relate too: everything from the fun times to the deeper side of us. I think its so important to have an album that can touch more than one feeling.”
Produced by Daniel Flores, “The Storm” shows that Issa is a solid Rock Music star and a true uprising Rock diva, who is set to alight hearts and minds of Melodic Rock fans for the years to come !
“The Storm” includes the following tracks:
Looking For Love; Please Hold On; Take A Stand; Invincible; Two Hearts; Black Clouds; You’re Making Me; Gonna Stand By You; We’re On Fire; Too Late For Love; What Does It Take; The Storm. Includes bonus videoclip: Looking For Love.
