Jack Blades Premieres “Back in The Game” Video
February 22, 2012
Jack Blades fans worldwide can log on to Hannity.com right now to witness the worldwide premiere of the video for “Back In The Game”. The song is the first single from Jack Blades’ forthcoming album ‘Rock N’ Roll Ride’.
The video imparts a strong patriotic message of the debt of gratitude owed to the military of this nation. Blades, a longtime fan of talk show host Sean Hannity, recently appeared on the “Hannity” television show and an instant bond was established melding the political world with the rock music world. Jack Blades commented, “Sean’s a great guy but he needs work on his onstage rock moves… I’m just the guy to teach him!”
‘Rock N’ Roll Ride’ is due out on March 23rd in Europe and March 27th in North America via Frontiers Records and features contributions from Blades’ Night Ranger bandmates Brad Gillis, Kelly Keagy, Joel Hoekstra and Eric Levy, as well as a special guest appearance by Cheap Trick’s Robin Zander.
The new record marks Blades’ second solo release for the label. Hot off the heels of Night Ranger’s celebrated 2011 CD ‘Somewhere In California’ and a massive North American tour with Night Ranger as support for Journey and Foreigner last year, Blades shows no signs of slowing down with his buoyant new album. Of the new offering, Blades commented, “‘Rock N’ Roll Ride’ is an extension of what my music has been for the last 30 years. It has been quite a rock n’ roll ride and I decided to lay it all down on a record!”
Jack Blades is a frontman, lead singer, bassist, songwriter, and producer as well as a founding member of the highly-successful arena rock band Night Ranger and supergroup Damn Yankees (along with Ted Nugent and Tommy Shaw from Styx) and the highly-regarded Shaw/Blades. Throughout his remarkable career Blades has sold over 25 million albums, performed in front of millions of fans worldwide and collaborated with some of rock’s most legendary artists.
With a career spanning three decades, Blades has recorded with, penned songs and produced albums for some of the music industry’s biggest names including Aerosmith, Cher, Ringo Star, Alice Cooper, Roger Daltrey, Journey, Ozzy Osbourne, Styx, Ted Nugent, Motley Crue and Vince Neil. His music has been featured in movies such as Armageddon, Boogie Nights, Tommy Boy, television shows such as “South Park” and “American Dad,” the hit Broadway musical (and soon-to-be released major motion picture) Rock of Ages and the wildly successful videogame series “Rock Band” and “Guitar Hero”.
With Blades’ songwriting, driving guitars, stage antics and on the strength of Night Ranger’s songs “Don’t Tell Me You Love Me,” “Rock in America,” “Sister Christian,” “When You Close Your Eyes,” and “Sentimental Street”, along with the Damn Yankees hits “High Enough” and “Coming of Age”, Blades’ legacy continues to inspire generations while still being written.
