Frontiers Records is pleased to announce the release of the new exciting ANDRE ANDERSEN / PAUL LAINE / DAVID READMAN “III” project on March 24th 2006.

The project had its inception from the great esteem that both Andre Andersen – keyboard maestro and mainman of ROYAL HUNT – and Paul Laine – formerly singer of DANGER DANGER – had one for each other.

Andre therefore started to write “straight rock tunes”. In a way, according to the ivory-tinkler “it was a challenge to push these songs in a 3,5 – 4 minutes frames, ditching those longer instrumental passages, elaborate intros and such. But it was fun nevertheless” adding then, “The whole sound landscape is pretty much “in your face”, every player did a great job so the main point of this album – no thrills, pure rock – came across as planned”.

After the first recording sessions Andre felt the desire to expand the project to another powerful and strong vocalist he had the chance to admire for some time, that is to say PINK CREAM 69 shouter David Readman. He liked a lot the demos that Andre prepared for the project and in a few weeks the record was completed.

“Both singers are great” says Andre, “and even if I crafted the songs particularly for their vocal styles, they made my job a lot easier”.

The full tracklisting includes ten tracks of straight ahead melodic hard rock that will encompass a large number of fans – from the ROYAL HUNT and PINK CREAM 69 to the DANGER DANGER harder-edged fanbase.
