June 19, 2015, 6 years ago
Now Or Never, the debut album from Benedictum singer Veronica Freeman's solo project, The V, will be released on July 3rd in Europe and July 10th in North America. The V marks a major step out of Veronica's comfort zone, since it delves into a definite melodic hard rock vibe. The new track “Line In The Sand” can be heard below:
An impressive array of talent has stepped up to assist The V in creating her solo project on many levels. The list includes Pete Wells, Aric Avina and Rikard Stjernquist of Benedictum, Michael Sweet (Stryper), Garry Bordonaro (The Rods), Jeff Pilson (Dokken, Foreigner), Mike LePond (Symphony X), Tony Martin (Black Sabbath), Leather Leone (Chastain), Jerry Dixon (Warrant), Jim Durkin (Dark Angel), Mick Tucker (Tank), Jordan Ziff (Age Of Evil), Derek Kerswill (Unearth, Kingdom Of Sorrow), Peter Tentindo (Venus Mars Project), John Herrera, Ryan Greene, Kenny Lewis, Meliesa McDonell, Michael Harris , Mel Brown and John O'Boyle.
Veronica comments: "I had a lot of input and encouragement from Frontiers to try and stretch myself with different musical styles and approaches. It was great to be able to work with Pete Wells writing some of these songs too. So it was a no-brainer to accept their proposal for a solo album. I am a bit nervous and beyond excited!"
Says Frontiers: "Be prepared! If you thought Veronica was just a heavy metal amazon, you're going to be proven dead wrong! This is a massive melodic hard rock record with some great lead vocals which show a lot of the original influences that brought The V to be one of the most well know and recognized voices in the current metal scene!"
Now Or Never was produced by John Herrera except for the song "King For A Day", which was produced by Kenny Lewis, and "Love Should Be To Blame" and "Again", which were produced by Michael Sweet.
