January 18, 2011

Eagle Rock Entertainment will deliver to the masses Russia's premiere rock band PUSHKING. Their CD, "The World As We Love It", will hit the shelves on February 1. [MSRP $13.98]

This new album is a 19-track celebration, composed of re-recorded selections from PUSHKING's catalogue featuring some very special guests. Paul Stanley (KISS),Billy F. Gibbons (ZZ TOP),Alice Cooper, Steve Vai, Glenn Hughes (DEEP PURPLE),Joe Lynn Turner (RAINBOW),Keri Kelli (ALICE COOPER),Steve Stevens (BILLY IDOL),and Nuno Bettencourt (EXTREME) are just some of the elite rock alumni who RSVP'd for this musical party.

Produced by Fabrizio Grossi (GLENN HUGHES, ALICE COOPER, DAVE NAVARRO, TOTO),"The World As We Love It" is a superior series of shifting moods, showcasing PUSHKING's versatile musical prowess. Loaded with soaring harmonics, sky-scaling solos, and just the right amount of grit, the band's genre-straddling sound is a marriage of solid hard rock and classic Eastern European heritage.

Formed in 1994, PUSHKING is the culmination of vocalist/main songwriter Konstantin "Koha" Shustarev, guitarists Nikolai Yegerev and Dmitry Losev, bassist Valeriy Sadakov, keyboardist Vicktor Drobysh, and drummer Andrey Kruglov. The chemistry within this band has resulted in a potent brand of rock music, which has preserved through their 15-year career and only gets better. "It was a gas singin' on their record", states Glenn Hughes. "Take it from me, it's the real deal!!"
