ALTA REIGN Feat. TRANS-SIBERIAN ORCHESTRA / SAVATAGE Drummer JEFF PLATE Streaming New Song "Thin Red Line"; Static Video
December 18, 2020, a year ago
Alta Reign, featuring Trans-Siberian Orchestra/Savatage drummer Jeff Plate, are streaming the new song, "Thin Red Line", from their debut album Mother’s Day, out January 8 via Rat Pak Records. Find a static video for the song below.
Jeff Plate joined forces with TSO keyboardist Jane Mangini, along with Tommy Cook (guitars/lead vocals), Collin Holloway (guitars/lead vocals), Kevin McCarthy (bass, vocals) and Zach Hamilton (keyboards, guitars/vocals) to form the band and record the songs for the debut album.
Mother’s Day is the reflection of dedication as the initial idea spawned 30 years ago and ended in 2020 before locking in the 2021 release date. The album is available for pre-order at RatPakRecords.com and iTunes.
From the album's opening riffs of “Shine”, to the majestic "Mother's Day", the reflective mood of "Always", and the mindful closer “Rise,” Alta Reign has created something very different and original. Drawing from his history, his influences and his heroes, Plate has combined melodic, progressive, hard rock and straight up metal to create a unique landscape for the listener. Other TSO brethren make an appearance on Mother’s Day as guitarist Joel Hoekstra can be heard on the title track and guitarist Chris Caffery shows up on “Rise.” Songs like “Thin Red Line,” the frenetic instrumental “ESC (Escape)” and “Let’s Go! (I’m In Charge Now)” present every indication that the talent of these musicians is limitless.
