ALIEN Sign With FRONTIERS RECORDS; New Album Due In The Fall

Frontiers Records have announced the signing of the freshly reunited Swedish band ALIEN for the release of their brand new album, entitled "Dark Eyes".

Comprising 11 tracks touching on the great themes of rock 'n' roll (love, loss, hope and despair), "Dark Eyes" revisits the classic ALIEN sound and adds over a decade more of writing and performing experience. The album will fulfill the dreams of lovers of Scandi-melodic rock and the classic hard rock sound.

Founding members guitarist Tony Borg and singer Jim Jidhed are excited to be on such a great label alongside great heroes like JOURNEY, STYX, SOUL SIRKUS and THUNDER.

"When our manager told us that Serafino at Frontiers had contacted her about us, we all had a good look at what they do," stated Tony. "Other labels had contacted us and other labels we approached, but we all kept talking about Frontiers and how friendly they all are. In the end it wasn't a hard decision at all. We just went with the old 'gut feeling' and it feels very right!"

"I am really excited about the new album," added Jim. "Both for working with Tony again, which is an absolute joyride, but also for the fact that we are playing a more traditional style rock 'n roll with touches of a classic ALIEN sound of the new millenium. And I do like that."

"It is a pure pleasure to be working together with Jim again," explained Tony. "Everyone has always told us that there is this special chemistry between us and they are right. We are working fantastically well together. Also Bernie (bass), Mats (keyboards) and Jan (drums) are all incredible musicians and have all the qualities an ALIEN band member should have."

"Our new CD sounds very close to what ALIEN sounded when it all started," concluded Borg. "We've gone back to our roots and what inspired us to become musicians when we wrote the songs for 'Dark Eyes'."

Sontitles set to appear on "Dark Eyes" include "Oh Sarah", "Riding With The Wind", "Sherylee" and "Wild One".

The album will be released worldwide on Frontiers Records in the fall of 2005 with a domestic release in Japan via Marquee/Avalon.
