As previously reported here at Stargazed Magazine, Night Ranger are gearing up for a new studio album on Frontiers Music Srl. Their 12th studio album, “ATBPO” (And The Band Played On) will be out on August 6, 2021. It will be available on CD and Vinyl (several limited edition, color vinyl versions), as well as digitally across all streaming platforms.

A first taste of the album is now available through the video for “Breakout”:

The band began writing the album in early 2020, amid the onset of the global pandemic. After narrowing down the song selection and tightening them up to their well-known rock ‘n roll sound, the band hit the studio, although separately, due to the times we are in. “The process was strange but the outcome rocks”, says Jack Blades.

“It’s been a crazy but fun task trying to write and finish this new record in a Covid situation. A few zoom video gatherings got us started. With everybody in the band having their own home studios, we were all able to elaborate and add our own textures to each song. As a Vintage Guitar Collector, I was able to add some great classic sounds to rhythm and solos using my 57 Strat and 52 Goldtop! I hope everyone enjoys the record!” – Brad Gillis
