BANGALORE CHOIR CANCELS ROCKLAHOMA APPEARANCE:
June 5, 2008
Due to serious family medical complications with some members of Bangalore Choir, the band has been forced to cancel. Vocalist David Reece will still perform with his Swedish rock band Gypsy Rose.
Lance King of Nightmare Records got word that David Reece was coming out of retirement and contacted his management about playing on their TRI-LABEL STAGE at this years ROCKLAHOMA. Originally David was working to bring his old band BANGALORE CHORE back to life, but that was not yet meant to be. It must be the year of the Gypsy.
David now will play with GYPSY ROSE at this years ROCKLAHOMA on our Tri-Label stage (2ND STAGE SOUTH). With somewhat of a jaded career under their belts since their formation back in 1981. The band signed a deal in 1984 that never saw light of day and then again in 1989 the band hit another brick wall, and so the name of Gypsy Rose was destined to be washed away in the anodes of music history. That was until 2004 when the band decided give it one more try, and finally the band’s self-titled debut release saw the light of day and received some favourable reviews.
It’s now 2008 and the band is back and this time the band means business, as they have enlisted the vocal talents of David Reece (ex-Accept/Bangalore Choir) fame to put his vast vocals to the Swedes Melodic Masterpiece.
After several years under the radar on a ranch in Montana, lead vocalist David Reece was contacted by Escape Records in 2007 to see what the chances would be for him to go to Sweden to sing on Swedish band Gypsy Rose’s next release. Soon after that David found himself in the studio for the next year recording and writing for the new GYPSY ROSE CD “Another World” to be released worldwide June 20th, 2008
With the opening track ‘Final Call’ on the new release setting the standard for the rest of the album, with its crunching guitar sound and Reece’s powerful melodic tones that communicate the whole Gypsy Rose sound to life. Reece really shows what a talent he is as he brings his full range to the brilliant song ‘Nothing Really Matters’, with Martin Kronlund’s sterling guitar work unifying with Reece to produce one of the best tracks of the album.
Kronlund’s production is second to none and he has not only brought out the best in the bands sound, but also the best in Reece who is just remarkable throughout. Reece again showing us what we’ve been missing with another great vocal performance. Kronlund has found a winning formula and long may it continue.
Set to hit the stage on July 13th 2008, in Pryor, Oklahoma on the 2ND Stage North, Reece is BACK more powerful then ever. David’s voice prowess has added a new melodic dimension to the sound and his feats are matched by the peerless instrumental performances of the founding members.
