Danger Danger reunion with drummer Steve West playing in The Defiants with Ravel, Laine & Marcello
With Danger Danger with singer Ted Poley seemingly being very far away from releasing a new studio album, it appears that another version of Danger Danger will be recording a new studio album under the name of The Defiants.
The Defiants, which already featured current Danger Danger bassist Bruno Ravel and guitarist Rob Marcello along with ex-Danger Danger lead vocalist Paul Laine have now recruited Danger Danger‘s long-time drummer Steve West to play drums on the group’s sophomore album. According to Wikipedia, Ravel, Marcello, Laine and West played together as Danger Danger back in 2003 and 2004.
The following message was posted on The Defiants‘ Facebook page earlier yesterday:
“Laaaaadies and gents… you ain’t seen nuthin’ yet!
Bashing the drums on the new Defiants record… The one, the only, #SteveWest!! Setting up, getting sounds…Drums tracks will be done in a few days. We’re pumped!! DCity Studios Paul Laine Rob Marcello#hrsoli Danger Danger #Zokusho Frontiers Music srl #BrunoRavel“
The Defiants‘ debut self-titled album finished at #2 on the Sleaze Roxx Readers’ Top 20 Albums of 2016 to which Sleaze Roxx stated: “If we can’t get a new Danger Danger album, what would be the next best thing? How about a debut album from a new group called The Defiants consisting of two current Danger Danger band members (bassist Bruno Ravel and guitarist Rob Marcello) along with former Danger Danger lead vocalist Paul Laine? The Defiants‘ self-titled debut album is a pure 100% melodic rock record that obviously resonated with Sleaze Roxx readers given that it was very close to snagging the number one spot. One of the hardest things for bands that sold a lot of records back in the ’80s and early ’90s is coming up with new material that measures up to previous albums that fans still revere to this day. Rather than face the ghosts of the past, it makes sense for artists such as Ravel and current Danger Danger frontman Ted Poley (with his new project Tokyo Motor Fist) to form new groups and continue to release music in the same vein. The Defiants‘ self-titled debut album is proof positive that you can branch out from your past and still successfully come up with music that resonates with fans. Probably the best news for lovers of The Defiants‘ debut album is that the band is apparently planning a sophomore album with new ideas supposedly getting exchanged in the early part of 2017.”
