Winger Premiere “Better Days Comin” Video
September 17, 2014
Winger have released a video for “Better Days Comin'”, the title track from their 2014 album of the same name. This is the fourth video from the new album — following “Rat Race”, “Midnight Driver Of A Love Machine”, and “Tin Soldier” — and promises not to be the last.
‘Better Days Comin’ was released in April through Frontiers Records. “Better Days Comin’ fits well alongside the classic Winger discography,” said Sleaze Roxx. “It’s not an album full of filler, like so many bands have released over the last 15 years or so, instead all the songs are very well written and most could be successful singles. 2013 was the best year for hard rock and metal in a very long time, and Better Days Comin’ continues that trend of great music being released by the legends from the ’80s. It’s a sign of great things to come, and proof that indeed, better days ARE coming for all of us hard rock and heavy metal fans!”
Winger has always been known for their incredible musicianship and the trend continues on ‘Better Days Comin’. “On Better Days Comin’ we drew from our past to elaborate on our future. The band is stronger than ever and very excited about the music on this record,” explained front man Kip Winger. “We feel this album exemplifies the true sound of the band in every way.”
From the opening riff of album opener “Midnight Driver Of A Love Machine” to the final outro lick of “Out Of This World”, it is clear Winger is back and better than ever. Hard rocking songs like “Queen Babylon”, progressive rock movements like “Tin Soldier”, and touching ballads like “Ever Wonder” show the band’s diversity while always centering on great songs. The debut single from ‘Better Days Comin’ is the adrenaline fueled rocker “Rat Race” that showcases some of the band’s best work of their 25 year career.
Winger formed in the late 1980’s and soared to immediate success with their 1988 self-titled release. The album spawned the hit singles “Seventeen” and “Headed For A Heartbreak” and achieved platinum sales status. Winger also stayed on the Billboard Top 200 chart for over 60 weeks where it peaked at #21. Their next album, ‘In The Heart Of The Young’, also achieved platinum status behind the singles “Can’t Get Enuff” and “Miles Away”. The change in musical climate of the mid ’90s, compounded with unprovoked ridicule on MTV’s popular Beavis and Butthead, led the band to go on hiatus in 1994. In 2001, the band reunited and have not looked back since. Winger has made a name for themselves with relentless touring, while winning back fans and critics alike because of their exceptional musicianship, Kip Winger’s powerful vocals and the band’s incredible songwriting.
