The following message was posted in part on Autograph‘s Facebook page earlier today:

“On January 31, 2022, Frontiers Music Srl made an announcement welcoming the legendary ’80s hard rockers Autograph to the label’s roster. The band, at the time, featuring vocalist Simon Daniels, guitarist Jimi Bell, bassist Randy Rand, and drummer Marc Wieland, were close to wrapping up work on their brand new studio album “Beyond,” which the label had slated for release later in the year. Just past mid-April 2022, Randy delivered the final masters and artwork for “Beyond” and was sorting out plans for the release with the label when he received some news about his health. And then, shockingly, just a few days later, on April 26, 2022, Randy Rand, a founding member of the band, passed away. Before his untimely passing, he shared with his bandmates that if something was to happen to him before the release plans were finalized, he wanted them to release “Beyond“, his last recorded work.

And so, with bittersweet emotions, Frontiers Music Srl announces the forthcoming release of Autograph‘s new studio album, “Beyond“, the last album to feature founding member and bassist Randy Rand, on November 18, 2022. A new single and music video, ‘This Ain’t The Place I Wanna Be’ is out now.”

Sleaze Roxx recently interviewed Daniels, Wieland and Bell. In terms of the recording process for Beyond, Bell indicated: “The four of us all contributed to the writing process in our own ways. Simon and I have been creating and writing songs for as long as we have been musicians. We immediately sensed where the band’s potential was and already had ideas for new music. I had a special connection with Randy. I remember sending him over a couple of musical ideas for and let’s say, he was immediately blown away. Simon brought in his “A” game and contributed a few songs he had already written and then collaborated with me on the others. With Marc’s expert production contributions and finishing touches, we had something we were all very proud of. Randy’s thunderous bass can be heard all over this album. The collaboration was a fun process for us. Included are the signature melodies, big choruses, anthems and riffs. Randy was like a kid in a candy store… He couldn’t wait for the release. We dedicate this album ‘Beyond’ to Randy. May his legacy and music reach the fans near and afar and live forever. We know all will love it!”
