BOSTON founder Tom Scholz has received PETA’s Compassionate Action Award for being a founding member of PETA and for inspiring others to extend their compassion to all living beings.

The award was presented on October 6th at an event held at Lesley University in Cambridge to a packed room of over 150 guests following a special address by PETA President and cofounder, Ingrid Newkirk. Entitled The Naked Truth, Ms. Newkirk spoke about the animal rights movement—and how it must reach beyond pelts and "pets" to persuade people to view all animals as fellow citizens worthy of respect.

"On behalf of PETA and music fans alike, a sincere thanks to Tom for his involvement—the animals are lucky to have such a true friend like himself!"

According to Music Tap, Frontiers Records will release the sixth album from Boston called, Life, Love & Hope on December 3rd

In typical Boston fashion, the anxiously-awaited new studio effort is the first since 2002's Corporate America.

In 2011 Boston reported from the studio: "The lead vocals for Boston's soon to be released studio album include Brad Delp's singing on many songs, along with several excellent performances by our other three lead vocalists. The album reflects an intentional effort by principal songwriter and producer Tom Scholz to capture the recognizable sound and energy of his original releases, combined with the musical sophistication expected from exceptional players and vocalists all performing within the traditional framework of the well known Boston sound."

Boston 2013 features leader/guitarist Tom Scholz, guitarists Gary Pihl and David Victor, singer Tommy DeCarlo, bassist Tracy Ferrie and drummer Curly Smith.
