Frontiers Records and Rockit Factory Ltdannounce the signing of the freshly reunited Swedish band, Alien, for the release of their brand new album, ÂDark EyesÂ.
Comprising 11 tracks touching on the great themes of Rock and Roll: love, loss, hope and despair, ÂDark EyesÂ revisits the classic Alien sound and adds over a decade more of writing and performing experience. The album will fulfil the dreams of lovers of Scandi-melodic rock and the classic hard rock sound.
Founding members guitarist Tony Borg and singer Jim Jidhed are excited to be on Âsuch a great label alongside great heroes like Journey, Styx, Soul Sirkus, Thunder." Tony said "when our manager told us that Serafino at Frontiers had contacted her about us, we all had a good look at what they do. Other labels had contacted us and other labels we approached, but we all kept talking about Frontiers and how friendly they all are. In the end it wasn't a hard decision at all. We just went with the old "gut feeling" and it feels very right."
"I am really excited about the new albumÂ adds Jim. ÂBoth for working with Tony again, which is an absolute joy ride, but also for the fact that we are playing a more traditional style Rock 'n Roll with touches of a classic Alien sound of the new millenium. And I do like that."
"It is a pure pleasure to be working together with Jim againÂ explains Tony. ÂEveryone has always told us that there is this special chemistry between us and they are right. We are working fantastically well together. Also Bernie (bass), Mats (keyboards) and Jan (drums) are all incredible musicians and have all the qualities an Alien band member should haveÂ.
ÂOur new CD sounds very close to what Alien sounded when it all startedÂ concludes Borg, ÂWe've gone back to our roots and what inspired us to become musicians when we wrote the songs for Dark EyesÂ. Some of the songs to be included on ÂDark EyesÂ include ÂOh SarahÂ, ÂRiding With The WindÂ, ÂSheryleeÂ, ÂWild OneÂ.
The album shall be released worldwide on Frontiers Records in the fall of 2005 with a domestic release in Japan via Marquee/Avalon.
