Winger Post First Teaser From Upcoming Studio Album
February 13, 2014
Winger are gearing up for the release of ‘Better Days Coming’ this April and have uploaded a short snippet of the song “Rat Race” to give fans a taste of the upcoming studio album. Winger have already shot five music videos for the release and plan on touring touring extensively worldwide in 2014 to promote the new CD.
‘Better Days Coming’ will be Winger’s sixth studio album and is the follow-up to 2009’s successful ‘Karma’ release, which placed second on the Sleaze Roxx Reader’s Poll that year.
Winger currently consists of singer/bassist Kip Winger, Whitesnake guitarist Reb Beach, drummer Rod Morgenstein and guitarist John Roth and just last year celebrated the 25th anniversary of their self-titled debut album.
Winger’s 1988 debut album achieved platinum status in the United States, and gold in Japan and Canada while sporting such hits as “Madalaine”, “Seventeen” and “Headed For A Heartbreak”. In 1990, the band was nominated for an American Music Award for “Best New Heavy Metal Band”. Shortly after, Winger released their second album ‘In The Heart Of The Young’, which went platinum in the U.S. and gold in Japan, and included the band’s biggest hit “Miles Away”, which hit #12 on the Billboard charts.
As with many other bands of this time, grunge took over and Winger went their separate ways in 1994. They reunited again in 2001 and completed several very successful tours. In 2006, they recorded their first studio album in over 13 years, ‘IV’, followed by ‘Karma’ three years later.
