The LA-based outfit, A New Revenge, featuring an all-star line up of classic rock players, will release their debut album, ‘Enemies & Lovers’, on March 29 via Golden Robot Records.
So who is out for A New Revenge?
Featuring one of the finest voices in metal of all time, Tim ‘Ripper’ Owens (who’s voice is all over albums from Judas Priest, Iced Earth and Yngwie Malmsteen), one of the most versatile and name-checked guitarists in rock, Keri Kelli, (Slash’s Snake Pit, Alice Cooper, Vince Neil Band), Rudy Sarzo (who’s work with Ozzy Osbourne, Dio, Whitesnake and many more has earned him an almost revered status in heavy music), and long time Scorpions drummer James Kottak (also from Montrose, Warrant, Kingdom Come and more)
Guitarist Keri Kelli says, “Beginning the songwriting process we said ‘Let’s get together and come up with three or four original songs.’ Without any pressure, just creating as we went. Finally we got to the eleven songs we were all happy with. ‘Here’s To Us’ was the first song we wrote for this record. It came very fast and was pretty simple to write. Its basically an ode to hard rock fans the planet over.”
Regarding the album, Kelli says, “It’s been a long time coming but it’s completely finished mixed, mastered and all ready to go. We all really, really excited to finally unleash this on the hard rock community.”
The first music released from ‘Enemies & Lovers’ comes via single The Way.
The video features the band with their good friend Phil Soussan stepping up for Rudy Sarzo, who had to bow out at the last minute due to an unforseen scheduling conflict on shoot day.
