The Gods of guitar-heavy AOR return....
Anticipated by the first single Somehow Someway, Don’t Let Up is the culmination of the band’s work to date and celebrates the band’s 35th anniversary with incredible melodic cuts and hard rocking numbers. Self produced by the band, Night Ranger‘s new album has everything the fans, both old and new, could ask for!
“The Don’t Let Up album is the result of five musicians living and breathing rock ‘n roll twenty four hours a day. Thirty five years on and Night Ranger is once again ready to let the fans know “It’s Only Rock and Roll, but I like it,” says bassist/co-vocalist Jack Blades of the new album.
Drummer/co-vocalist Kelly Keagy adds, “Working on the material for the new album Don’t Let Up was a great experience once again. I always look forward to creating music with Brad, Eric, Kerri, and Jack. I’m really looking forward to playing some of this material for the fans. It rocks!”
“I’m looking forward to the new Night Ranger studio effort Don’t Let Up as it’s always a pleasure releasing new material to keep the bands creative flow. As typical for NR, we have all the elements that made us popular in the first place, including twin lead vocal tradeoffs with Jack and Kelly and dual guitar harmonies and solos with my new partner in crime, Keri Kelli. We’ve stacked the deck again with up tempo driving rock songs, mid tempo tunes and a few acoustic ballad tracks. We’re hoping this new album will be added to your existing Night Ranger catalogue!” enthuses guitarist Brad Gillis.
With more than seventeen million albums sold worldwide and over three thousand live shows performed, Night Ranger has both epitomized and transcended the arena rock sound and style of that era and beyond.
