Frontiers Records will release bluesy hard rockers BURNING RAIN’s third studio album, Epic Obsession, on May 17th in Europe and May 21st in North America.
Burning Rain was founded by current WHITESNAKE axeman Doug Aldrich together with singer Keith St. John (ex-MONTROSE). The lineup for the new album is rounded out by Sean McNabb on bass (ex-QUIET RIOT, DOKKEN, HOUSE OF LORDS) and Mat Starr on drums (ACE FREHLEY).
Epic Obsession comes after a long hiatus from the release of the band’s second album, Pleasure To Burn, in 2000.
Of Epic Obsession, Aldrich commented, “I think we have a good batch of songs that will stand up. It’s a melodic blues rock approach to the band’s sound. It’s really the only thing I have done outside of Whitenake in the last ten years.”
Frontiers Records will be also be releasing on the same date reissues of the long out-of-print first two albums from Burning Rain, the self-titled debut (released in 1999) and the aforementioned Pleasure To Burn. Both albums will be repackaged and remastered and will contain two added bonus tracks to each respective album.
