BANGALORE CHOIR's DAVID REECE Interviewed By METAL EXPRESS RADIO (Audio)
Norway's Metal Express Radio recently conducted an interview with lead vocalist David Reece of the reunited melodic hard rock band BANGALORE CHOIR. You can now listen to the chat using the audio player below.
"Cadence", the new studio album from BANGALORE CHOIR, will be released on September 24 via Metal Heaven Records.
It has been 18 years since BANGALORE CHOIR's only release, "On Target", on Giant Records in 1992, which came out on the same day as NIRVANA's "Nevermind". Shortly after, BANGALORE CHOIR disbanded after being released from the label.
After several years under the radar on a ranch in Montana, Reece (ex-ACCEPT, DAREFORCE) was contacted by Escape Records in 2007 to see what the chances would be for him to go to Sweden to sing on Swedish band GYPSY ROSE's next release. Soon after that David found himself in the studio for the next year recording and writing for the new GYPSY ROSE CD, "Another World", which was released in June 2008.
While touring and doing the Sweden Rock Festival in June 2007 and opening for AEROSMITH in Europe, Reece regained his passion for music, deciding he wanted to put BANGALORE CHOIR back together. Reece reached out to guitarist Curt Mitchell and bassist Danny Greenberg and asked them if they would like to make a new record. Both of them eagerly accepted the challenge. Joining them on the new album are Hans in't Zandt on drums and guitarist Andy Susemihl of U.D.O. fame, who contributed to the songwriting process and did a masterful job on the CD's production.
Commented Reece: "We knew if we were to make a new record that in order for it to be viable we had to keep some of the old formula that worked so well in the past which we have done!
"The new record by BANGALORE CHOIR is called 'Cadence' — continuing with blistering guitars pounding rhythms and big, hooky choruses."

BANGALORE CHOIR will go on tour in Europe in early October, playing such shows as the H.E.A.T. Festival as well as the Firefest in England. They also plan to tour the Asian market and are in the process of scheduling U.S. dates.
