BMG are proud to announce the worldwide release of the debut album Smith/Kotzen by Adrian Smith and Richie Kotzen on March 26.

Taking My Chances & Scars
 
Check it out here smith-kotzen.lnk.to/albumPR


Adrian says of the song, “It’s a really cool sort of driving track, one of the heavier ones on the album and we’re excited to get it out there ahead of the album release. We’ve both been thrilled by the reaction to our music so far and are very much looking forward to meeting up again as soon as we can, to write some more songs together.”  



Richie adds, “Running was the first song Adrian and I worked on.  Adrian came in with that heavy verse riff which lead me to conjuring up what lives as our chorus to the composition.  Running is surely one of my top three favourites on the Smith/Kotzen album and I really look forward to playing this one live”. 

As well as the duo co-writing, co-producing and sharing guitars and vocals, Richie also plays bass and drums on the track. 

With the two previous singles Taking My Chances and cars having been enthusiastically welcomed by fans and media alike, Running is the perfect final choice ahead of the eponymous album release on March 26 to showcase the astonishing breadth of talent and musical diversity between this unique pairing of two of rock’s most respected artists.

The Wisdom of Mountains contrasts the seemingly unbearable storm of emotions that follow loss, grief and betrayal with the serenity and stillness of mountain landscapes. Intrøspect explore new sounds in Wisdom through the blending of complex string arrangements with reverb-laden clean guitars, topped with vocalist Felicity Jayne’s sonorous voice to create ethereal soundscapes not often explored in heavier genres.

The bands drummer, Hugo Rumore comments, “The recording process for The Wisdom of Mountains with Chris (Blancato) was interesting, because he saw a lot of potential for the song – and we spent a long time workshopping to really define the parts and make sure that the drums were really supporting the song in the best way that they could. We spent a lot of time on small details, which really completes the song, in my opinion!!

Pre orders for Midnight Sun are available now

THE VINTAGE CARAVAN Blend Prog & Blues Rock On New Single ‘Crystalized’, New Album ‘Monuments’ out 16 April

Published

on

Icelandic modern prog/psych trio THE VINTAGE CARAVAN have unveiled their second single, “Crystallized”, cut from their upcoming album, Monuments, out April 16, 2021 via Napalm Records. 

Those who have not hopped THE VINTAGE CARAVAN train yet will be convinced with “Crystallized”: the nearly six-minute joyride is injected with blues, prog rock and even funk-inspired elements, showcasing the band’s palpable, dynamic talent and mastery of varying inspired influences of the past while maintaining a fresh approach.

Talent for crafting swirling, grooving sonic journeys aside, the peculiar “Crystallized” music video truly showcases that these youngbloods are anything but one note. Displaying their noteworthy knack for slow-build humor, the video depicts the band waking up under very bizarre circumstances, eventually trying to find their way back home. On the flipside, the video provides a bold commentary on technology gone wrong. Watch this one ‘til the end!

THE VINTAGE CARAVAN vocalist/guitarist Óskar on the new single “Crystallized”:

“‘Crystallized’’ is the second single and second track on Monuments. Lyrically, the song is about a man travelling alone in a car through a blizzard in Iceland during a red weather warning. Eventually he loses his way and leaves the car and walks out into the unknown and disappears. Unfortunately, these lyrics were inspired by the many people who travelled our dangerous and unpredictable island and did not make it, so this is a warning song of sorts.”

Óskar adds:

“We don’t take ourselves too seriously when it comes to videos. We take the music very seriously, but we like funny music videos. Our friends from the rock band Volcanova make a special appearance at the end of the video, they are great! We buried ourselves in the black desert sand for a few hours for your pleasure. Enjoy!”

Step into the rabbit hole and watch/listen to the new single “Crystallized

With their new studio-album Monuments and its captivating, stellar arrangements, these rising stars definitely know how to put their very own stamp on the retro rock wave!
