Frontiers News:



Frontiers Records is pleased to announce details on the highly anticipated new studio album from Joe Lynn Turner “The Usual Suspects”.   The tracklisting will feature the following songs (not final order):   All Alone, Devil's Door, Really Loved, Rest of My Life, Unfinished Business, Blood Money (exclusive bonus track for Europe); Into the Fire

Jacknife; Ball and Chain; Live and Love Again; Power of Love.


The album was produced by Bob Held and Joe Lynn Turner and will feature a host of well known faces (hence the album title “The Usual Suspects” because many of his favorite friends/musicians wrote songs for and play on it) such as: Al Pitrelli (Megadeth, Savatage) and Karl Cochran (Ace Frehley) on guitar, David Z on bass, John O’Reilly on drums, Paul Morris and Andy Burton on keyboards with Nancy Bender helping out with some background vocals.   Joe Lynn has recently stated in an interview with Canadian magazine BW & BK: “I hope you like the new CD, because I really put a lot of heart and soul into it”. “It's a return to sort of Rainbow melodic rock” continues Joe, “I took the time to dress up the choruses. So I have to say it's more hard rock but melodic, very melodic as I wanted a return to something that was part of me, part of my past. I have to say that it's shades of Rainbow in many areas. Because Rainbow really was a very hard melodic band”. 




Thunder new single “I Love You More Than Rock 'N' Roll” has entered the UK single charts at no. 27, becoming the bands 17th top 40 hit!!!!!
