Night Ranger, Journey And Whitesnake Members Team Up In Revolution Saints
November 23, 2014
Deen Castronovo, Jack Blades and Doug Aldrich — put these three rock titans together in a band and you have the exciting new supergroup Revolution Saints. The group will release their debut album through Frontiers Music on February 20th, 2015, with the US release to follow on February 24th.
Superbly handling drums and lead vocals is Deen Castronovo. Already renowned for his drum talents and backing vocals in Journey, Bad English and more, Castronovo’s excellent vocal talents are in the spotlight on this release. On bass, and co-lead vocals on a few tracks, is Jack Blades, well known for his melodic yet hard rocking approach to songwriting and playing via multiple classic albums by his main band Night Ranger as well as with the Damn Yankees and the Shaw/Blades releases. On guitar, Doug Aldrich was excited to lend his fiery blues guitar attack to such a unique and melodic band. Aldrich, who just left Whitesnake after a fruitful 12 year run (including co-writing 2010’s critically acclaimed ‘Forevermore’ release) and also of Burning Rain and formerly of Dio, has a deep pedigree and is one of today’s most respected guitarists.
You can tell by the name — and the names involved — that Revolution Saints isn’t your average rock ‘n roll band. The new album brings back the classic melodic rock style to where it should be — inspiring, uplifting vocals, soaring melodies and musicianship to die for. It’s completely badass.
The project is the vision of Frontiers’ President Serafino Perugino, who for years had hoped to work on a project where Castronovo would be the lead vocalist. Having previously worked with all three artists on different projects with Frontiers Music, having Castronovo, Blades and Aldrich on board together was a dream come true for Perugino.
With production overseen by in-house Frontiers man Alessandro Del Vecchio (who also contributed to the songwriting and played keyboards on the album), the recording process took place in Portland, Oregon during the summer of 2014.Revolution Saints’ music is played with a heart and soul and that highlights the passion and the enthusiasm of three of the best rock and all-around musicians in the game today. Truly, this will be a release that you cannot afford to miss. Lovers of melodic rock will fall in love all over again with Revolution Saints.
