    HONEYMOON SUITE,reunited and recording


    Frontiers Records is pleased to announce the signing of the recently reunited Honeymoon Suite, for the release of their forthcoming, yet untitled, studio album.
    In June 2007, the band officially announced the return of the line-up featuring all five original band members: Johnnie Dee on vocals, Derry Grehan on guitar, Ray Coburn on keyboards, Dave Betts on drums and Gary Lalonde on bass.
    The new album has been recorded during the cold Canadian winter and is currently in the mixing stages. Some of the new track titles are "The House", "Separate Lives", "That's All You Got", "Sunday Morning" and "Tired of Waitin' On You".
    "There are 8 straight ahead rockers and the other 4 are interesting mid-tempo type songs" says Derry Grehan, adding "this album goes back much more to the original HMS melodic hard-rock sound that the band had in the eighties. The songs have big melodic choruses and are thick with lots of guitar and keyboards. Johnnie is singing better than ever and I think fans will love this one. I am very excited". And so is the label, that is planning to release the new album within the end of the summer 2008.

    STARBREAKER,recording new album


    Tony Harnell (TNT, Westworld, Morning Wood), Magnus Karlsson (Allen / Lande and Primal Fear) and John Macaluso (Malmsteen, TNT, Ark) have wrapped up recording for the much-anticipated new Starbreaker CD entitled Love's Dying Wish. Written and produced by Harnell and Karlsson, the tracks have now been handed over to respected producer Tommy Hansen (TNT, Jorn) for mixing. Some of the titles include “Unknown Superstar”, “End Of Alone”, “Love's Dying Wish”, “Evaporate” and “Beautiful Disaster”.

    New bassist Jonni Lightfoot (a touring and recording veteran with extensive credits to his name) has added a tasteful aggressive touch to this magnificent piece of work and compliments Macaluso's flashy drumming perfectly. This is a very special album that leaps forward from where the Starbreaker debut left off. With a fresh diversity that spans from pounding metal, to deep moody passages wrapped in a dark and beautifully melodic package. Release expected this fall.
