Frontiers Records is excited to announce the release of WIG WAM’s new album “Non Stop Rock and Roll” on January 29th in Europe (excluding Norway) and February 9th in the USA.
The Norwegian Glam Kings are finally back in the ring with their brand new album. Aptly titled “Non Stop Rock And Roll”, this new record shows all the elements that made up the monster reputation these guys are internationally known for: driving energy, unstoppable force and neverending fun !
“Non Stop Rock And Roll” is easily the band’s most complete album to date that offers 12 fresh sounding, breathtaking songs, that wears the guitars on it’s sleeves, still showing a more mature and less cheesy band.
The catchy hooklines and melodic Hard Rock anthems that WIG WAM are known for are still very much present, yet the feel of this album brings you right in front of the Marshall amps. Blowing your speakers with full blown Rock’n Roll this album is a Hard Rocking musical journey from the catchy opening track and first single “Do Ya Wanna Taste It” to the electrifying riff of “Walls Come Down”, from the Glam Rock happy going sing along anthem “C’mon Everybody” to the fast and furious title track. And hey, the boys also have the ability to set your girlfriend’s heart on fire with a couple of unique ballads for the ride. With three gifted songwriters – singer Glam, guitarist Teeny, bassist Flash – in the camp plus the rhythm machine drummer Sporty, “Non Stop Rock And Roll” shines, tweaks and pounds a full blooded rock’n roll album ought to.
Tracklisting: Do Ya Wanna Taste It; Walls Come Down; Wild One; C’mon Everybody; Man In the Moon; Still I’m Burning; All You Wanted; Non Stop Rock And Roll; From Here; Rocket Through My Heart; Chasing Rainbows; Gotta Get It On (*). (*) Bonus track for Europe & USA only available in the first edition in digipak
WIG WAM is finally ready to take you to the ultimate rock trip, and bring their wild live performances on the road in 2010.
As you can probably tell by the cover off this CD. Wig Wam is an 80’s parody band much like the Darkness and the Poodles.
The major difference here, they sound almost as good as their Big Hair peers.
There are lots of songs to like on this CD. Rock My Ride is a fun rocker. Gonna Get You Someday and Slave to Your Love could have been on a Bon Jovi CD. Dare Devil Heat and Kill My Rock N Roll reminds me a little of the Scorpions musically (but not lyrically) and are very upbeat. A R ‘N’ R Girl Like You starts off with this My Sharona guitar lick, but turns out to be a superior song. The closer Breaking All the Rules reminds of a mix between Bon Jovi and Savatage, if there could be such a thing.
I don’t know what it is about this CD that I like so much. The musical style comes across as sounding very familiar, but when I try to figure out which band they sound like exactly, I can’t put my finger on it . If you can get past the cheese factor here, you might like this disc.
