MARCO MENDOZA To Release 'Viva La Rock' Solo Album

September 19, 2017

Marco Mendoza has signed wordwide record deal with Mighty Music. He is currently in Denmark recording his long-awaited new solo album, "Viva La Rock", with producer and guitar player Søren Andersen (Glenn Hughes, Mike Tramp).

The new disc will be the first solo album in eight years from Mendoza, whose last effort, "Casa Mendoza", came out in 2010 via Mascot Records.

"Viva La Rock" is a tour de force of ten soulful, hard-rocking songs inspired by Mendoza's roots from the seventies through the bands he has been involved with in recent years, including WHITESNAKE, THIN LIZZY, Ted Nugent and THE DEAD DAISIES.

Mexican/American-born Mendoza is mostly known for his bass playing, but on "Viva La Rock", he will underline how gifted a singer he is and has always been. Like fellow bass man Glenn Hughes, the voice of Mendoza has only grown stronger with age.

"Viva La Rock" recording lineup:

Marco Mendoza - Vocals, Bass
Søren Andersen - Guitars
Morten Hellborn - Drums

Says Marco: "I'm so jazzed to annonce that I will work with Mighty Music and my talented, good friend Søren Andersen on a worldwide album release. Very exciting and creative times for me."

Adds Michael H. Andersen, CEO of Mighty Music: "So proud to welcome Marco Mendoza to our label. Marco is one of those musicians from the glorious days of rock 'n' roll who's still got the voice, the stage presence and the ability to write songs."

"Viva La Rock" will be released in early 2018 and will be followed by an extensive tour.

This week, Mendoza will be heading on a threee-week solo European tour with Michael McCrystal (TYGERS OF PAN TANG) and John Macaluso (Yngwie Malmsteen).
