LIONHEART Feat. Ex-IRON MAIDEN Guitarist DENNIS STRATTON: New Album Due In Early 2020

LIONHEART Feat. Ex-IRON MAIDEN Guitarist DENNIS STRATTON: New Album Due In Early 2020

Metalville Records has announced the signing of the veteran British hard rock band LIONHEART. The group is currently working on new material, and a fresh studio album, tentatively titled “Reality Of Miracles”, will be released during the spring of 2020.

LIONHEART was formed in 1980 by Stratton along with guitarist and keyboardist Steve Mann and bassist Rocky Newton, both of whom were later to play with MSG. Mann is also playing in the current lineup of MICHAEL SCHENKER FEST. The LIONHEART lineup is completed by original drummer Clive Edwards (ex-UFO) and undoubtedly one of the best singers in the U.K. at the moment, Lee Small (ex-SHY). During the 1980s, they toured constantly, selling out the infamous Marquee club in London on repeated occasions, and completing tours with WHITESNAKE and DEF LEPPARD. They also played at the legendary Reading Festival in 1981.

In 2017, LIONHEART released its first studio album since the classic “Hot Tonight” record from 1984. Titled “Second Nature”, it was hailed by the critics as a triumphant return for the band, and LIONHEART has now headed back into the studio to record a follow-up album.

“We have about 10 songs on the go at the moment,” Stratton said last fall, “and they are just sounding fantastic. We can’t wait to bring this out.”

LIONHEART is:

Lee Small (lead vocals)
Dennis Stratton (lead guitar, backing vocals)
Steve Mann (lead guitar, keyboards, backing vocals)
Rocky Newton (bass, backing vocals)
Clive Edwards (drums)

Last year, LIONHEART released a Christmas single called “Mary Did You Know”.

CYNIC's PAUL MASVIDAL Releases New EP, 'Hand To Mouth' Video

CYNIC's PAUL MASVIDAL Releases New EP, 'Hand To Mouth' Video

MASVIDAL, the solo project of songwriter and guitarist Paul Masvidal (CYNIC, DEATH, AEON SPOKE), has returned with “Human”, the second EP installment of his “Mythical Human Vessel” acoustic trilogy on AWAL. Paul has also made available a video for the track “Hand To Mouth” created by New York City experimental artists Greymar.

After an acclaimed career as the songwriter and guitar player for the influential progressive groups CYNIC and DEATH (whose fourth album earned a spot among Rolling Stone‘s “The 100 Greatest Metal Albums of All Time”), he now delivers his first solo effort under the moniker MASVIDAL. Produced by three-time Grammy winner Warren Riker (LAURYN HILL, FUGEES, SANTANA), “Mythical Human Vessel” is a departure from what his legions of fans have heard from him before. Ben Ratliff of The New York Times described Masvidal as one who “can expand his own sense of calm into an aggressive, extravagant art.” In this offering, Masvidal continues to channel music that is quietly powerful.

Drawing on influences from musicians John Lennon, Brian Eno, Chet Baker, Russill Paul and Elliott Smith to visual artists Mark Rothko, Ai Weiwei, Hilma af Klimt, the songs embrace concise forms and catchy melodies in spite of their often-painful subject matters of loss, depression, and heartache. In Masvidal‘s view, pain is not something to be feared but embraced as inevitable and, ultimately, a doorway.

Beyond Paul‘s ethereal aesthetic and progressive point of view, each song on the EP uses “isochronic tones” designed by Dr. Stephane Pigeon, creator of the Brian Eno-celebrated web site MyNoise. The tones are a groundbreaking type of sound therapy for increasing serotonin, alleviating depression and stress, improving focus, and aiding in restful sleep.

Major kudos to mixer/producer Warren Riker, who transported this intimate collection of material into another dimension. Everything sounds open, airy, and warm, thanks to Riker‘s gifted ears.

“Human” follows the spring 2019 release “Mythical” as the second part of Masvidal‘s conceptual trilogy. All three records will eventually be packaged together and released as the “Mythical Human Vessel” box set around summer 2020 along with an active touring schedule and an eventual immersive dome show.

“Human” track listing:

01. Beggars
02. Hand To Mouth
03. The Spaces
04. Come Come
05. Warrior Of The Universe
06. Human

Watch DOKKEN Perform In Agoura Hills

Watch DOKKEN Perform In Agoura Hills

Fan-filmed video footage of DOKKEN‘s October 12 performance at The Canyon in Agoura Hills, California can be seen below.

As with all of DOKKEN‘s recent gigs, DOKKEN‘s longtime member “Wild” Mick Brown did not perform with his bandmates in Agoura Hills.

Don Dokken recently told “The Classic Metal Show” that Mick was “done” playing drums. “He’s retiring, basically,” he said.

“People don’t realize, if anybody in the band — guitar player, singer, bass player… Singers lose their voice; bass players, whatever, get carpal tunnel, but a drummer, he’s got the hardest gig in the band,” Don explained. “And I told Mick years ago — years ago I told Mick — I said, ‘Mick, you need to take it easy on the drums. You hit too hard. You’re like John Bonham.’ Anybody who’s seen Mick knows he beats the hell out of those drums. And I said, ‘Mick, just take it easy and just hit ’em softer and don’t kill yourself.’ And he said, ‘I don’t know how to play the drums any other way. I go out there and I just go for it and pound the drums as hard as I can. I don’t know how to play like a jazz drummer. I’m a rock drummer.'”

DOKKEN is currently working on material on a new studio album, tentatively due in 2020 via Silver Lining Music, the label owned by Thomas Jensen, one of the founders of Germany’s Wacken Open Air festival. It will mark the group’s first disc since 2012’s “Broken Bones”.
