SAXON Guitarist, Ex-DORO Keyboardist Launch THE CARDS; Debut Album Due In January

December 11, 2018

THE CARDS, a brand new blues/rock trio featuring British guitarist Paul Quinn (SAXON),American singer and bassist Harrison Young (ex-DORO, ex-U.D.O.) and Dutchman Koen Herfst (ex-DEW-SCENTED, ex-I CHAOS) on drums, will release its self-titled debut album on January 18, 2019. The disc mixed and mastered by Dan Swanö and features cover artwork by Dutch artist Sophia Den Breems.

After meeting backstage at a German metal festival, Paul and Harrison bonded over a shared set of musical influences which became apparent in their early songwriting process. With the addition of drummer Koen, they find themselves branching out into new territory beyond the metal world with the creation of this album.

From classic blues stompers to full on rock and roll burners, this album leaves no territory unchartered.

Says Young: "This album was born out of friendship and camaraderie over the music making process, but it has become so much more."

01. No Soul
02. Bandit On The Run
03. Rock & Roll Rocketship
04. The Process
05. Pitfalls
06. Ride The Freight Train
