Shiraz Lane unleash video for track “Maniac Dance” as well as recap video from Monsters of Rock Cruise

Finnish rockers Shiraz Lane consisting of lead vocalist Hannes Kett, lead guitarist Jani Laine, rhythm guitarist Miki Kalske, bassist Joel Alex and drummer Ana Willman have unveiled a video for their track “Maniac Dance” from their studio album Forgotten Shades of Life, which was released back on August 12, 2022.

Shiraz Lane have also unveiled a recap video from their recent stint on the Monsters of Rock Cruise, which tookmplace from April 29th to May 4th, 2023.

The group describes its early days as follows: “The story of Shiraz Lane began in 2011 (Vantaa, Finland) as a group offive had an ambition to form a new generation rock band, through which it could channel its raging creativity and passion for music. After a couple of years of soul searching, the band started to blossom and reach its anticipated potential when the current desirable line-up was solidified in 2014. Shiraz Lane wreaks of creative variety, which resonates through their double-edged guitar sound (produced by lead guitarist Jani Laine and rhythm guitarist Miki Kalske), groovy-yet-solid ground-pounding (Ana Vilkkumaa, drums & Joel Alex, bass) and the unmistakably high-soaring melodies chanted by lead singer Hannes Kett. Despite their relative youth, they are already veterans of the circuit in their homeland and have developed a reputation for being uncompromising, loud, and most of all the genuine article. Although wearing inspiration and paying homage to their predecessors like Aerosmith and Guns N’ Roses, their sound and music is unique.

Shiraz Lane’s debut five-track-EP “Be The Slave Or Be The Change” was released in the spring of 2015. It was extremely well received by both public and the press and the single ”Mental Slavery” could even be described as an underground hit. Following this mini-record, the band released four music videos, toured the biggest national summer festivals and played in Toronto (Canada), Tokyo (Japan) & Wacken Open Air in Germany. In the autumn of 2015, Shiraz Lane embarked on an extensive national tour, playing the biggest clubs in Finland as a supporting act for Santa Cruz. The hype culminated with a worldwide record deal with Frontiers Music Srl, which was signed and sealed in September 2015.”
