Spread Eagle to release new album in 2019 via Frontiers Music Srl
Great news for Spread Eagle fans as the early ’90 hair metal rockers Spread Eagle will be releasing a new album more than 25 years after their last studio album. The group released two albums in the early ’90s via MCA/Universal Records — Spread Eagle (1990) and Open To The Public (1993).
The following message was posted on Frontiers Music Srl‘s Facebook page earlier today (with slight edits):
“Frontiers and Spread Eagle are very proud to announce that the band has signed to the label for the release of a new album in 2019. The band have started pre-production in the Music Building, located in New York City, which is the exact place where the songs for their debut album were rehearsed and written. Recording will take place at Studio E in Brooklyn, NY with Grammy Award winning engineer Tom Camuso.
“Spread Eagle are honored to be joining the Frontiers’ family. With Frontiers, we now have a very strong platform to spread the word on our style of rock. I promise our new album will be powerful because we, as brothers, truly believe in each other. Most of all, we want to do right by the fans who have been a tremendous source of inspiration to us,” says vocalist Ray West.
“We’re stoked to be recording again after all these years and working hard to make this album just as powerful and spirited as the previous Spread Eagle records,” says bassist and producer Rob De Luca. “It seems like I’ve lived nine lives since the last Spread Eagle record, so it’ll be great to add all those experiences into the mix on our new album. Frontiers seems to understand who we were and who we can be, so we’re very excited to be working with them!”
Spread Eagle is a welcome addition to the Frontiers’ family, where they will become yet another vital band from the ’80s/’90s rock scene to release amazing new music in the 21st century! Stay tuned for more information on the album as it becomes
available. In the meantime, keep up with the band on their website and Facebook.

Sleaze Roxx stated the following in its review of Spread Eagle‘s self-titled debut album: “Spread Eagle was originally released in 1990 (and later reissued in 2006), which was the beginning of the end for hair metal, so unfortunately this album never made much of an impact on the music industry and consequently never got much recognition. It was just one of the many albums of that time that got lost in the shuffle. You can still find the album online for a fair price though, and it is worth the money!”
