January 13, 2017
Frontiers Music Srl will release "Don't Let Up", the new studio album from NIGHT RANGER, on March 24. The disc will be available in both a standard edition and a deluxe edition (featuring bonus track and bonus DVD — physical format only).
The song "Somehow Someway", taken from "Don't Let Up", can be streamed below.
Says NIGHT RANGER bassist and vocalist Jack Blades: "'Somehow Someway' is all NIGHT RANGER. It not only captures the spirit of our live shows but also is the essence of who we are and who we have been for the last 35 years — a kick-ass American rock and roll band… Case closed."
Adds NIGHT RANGER drummer and vocalist Kelly Keagy: "The song 'Somehow Someway' is an up-tempo rocker with an infectious, big guitar lick. Take caution while you're driving in your car, you may find yourself going WAY over the speed limit. Check it out!"
States NIGHT RANGER guitarist Brad Gillis: "Our new single, 'Somehow Someway', is a rockin' barnburner up to the standards of our first single, 'Don't Tell Me You Love Me'. This could be a great song to perform live and add to our setlist....Enjoy!!"
NIGHT RANGER truly epitomizes the sound of the '80s, while at the same time transcending it. Since their reunion in 1996, they have brought their guitar heavy, melodic brand of hard rock into the 21st century with their unparalleled talent, energy, and creativity.
The new album, "Don't Let Up" was self-produced by the band.
"The 'Don't Let Up' album is the result of five musicians living and breathing rock 'n roll 24 hours a day. 35 years on and NIGHT RANGER is once again ready to let the fans know 'it's only rock and roll, but I like it,'" says Blades of the new album.
Keagy adds: "Working on the material for the new album "Don't Let Up" was a great experience once again. I always look forward to creating music with Brad, Eric, Keri, and Jack. I'm really looking forward to playing some of this material for the fans. It rocks!"
States Gillis: "I'm looking forward to the new NIGHT RANGER studio effort 'Don't Let Up' as it's always a pleasure releasing new material to keep the bands creative flow. As typical for NIGHT RANGER, we have all the elements that made us popular in the first place, including twin-lead-vocal tradeoffs with Jack and Kelly and dual guitar harmonies and solos with my new partner in crime, Keri Kelli. We've stacked the deck again with up tempo driving rock songs, mid tempo tunes and a few acoustic ballad tracks. We're hoping this new album will be added to your existing NIGHT RANGER catalog!!!"
With more than 17 million albums sold worldwide, over 3000 live shows performed, and more than 1 billion in radio audience, NIGHT RANGER has both epitomized and transcended the arena rock sound and style of that era and beyond.
