GREAT WHITE To Release 'Full Circle' Album In June

Veteran rockers GREAT WHITE will release their new album, "Full Circle", on June 2. The effort sees the band re-teaming with its original producer, Michael Wagener. It's an honorable nod to their first EP, "Out Of The Night" (Aegean Records, 1983) and debut self-titled full-length record (EMI, 1984). Wagener, is, of course, the legendary producer behind ALICE COOPER, MEGADETH, METALLICA, OZZY OSBOURNE and a slew of other rock gods.

"Full Circle" was recorded in January and February 2017 at Wagener's Nashville-based WireWorld Studio. The album's packaging includes a must-have companion DVD called "Making Of Full Circle". Rockslide Entertainment (produced by Todd Sadowski) captured the band developing the songs in the studio — a never-before-seen band access.

Much like 2012's "Elation" (Frontiers) the core songwriting team of Mark Kendall, Michael Lardie and Terry Ilous worked heavily alongside Audie Desbrow and Scott Snyder. The first single, "Big Time", is a sharp, cutting track.

In total, the ten songs on "Full Circle" range from the gut-punching "Give It Up" to the bass-heavy "Cry Of A Nation", the easily embraced, more acoustic "Let Me In" to the dynamic "This Is The Life".

"We can't thank our fans enough for being there with us over all of these decades," Kendall said. "It sounds insane to say decades, and when you think about it, that's how long it's been since we worked with Michael Wagener. Being excited in the studio with him is an understatement — he's a driving force and a legend behind the soundboard."

"GREAT WHITE is fueled by performing live – we love that energy that you can't find in the studio," Lardie said. "But, when you do get us working on a new record, there's a bond that is forged — it's almost like alchemy… it's years of stories, heartache, momentum and love that we put to track."

"Full Circle" track listing:

01. I'm Alright
02. Movin' On
03. This Is The Life
04. Let Me In
05. Moonshine
06. Cry Of A Nation
07. Give It Up
08. Big Time
09. Never Let You Down
10. I've Got Your Back

This version of GREAT WHITE is not to be confused with JACK RUSSELL'S GREAT WHITE, which features original GREAT WHITE singer Jack Russell alongside Robby Lochner (FIGHT) on guitar, Dan McNay on bass, Tony Montana on guitar and Dicki Fliszar on drums.

GREAT WHITE released a live album, "30 Years - Live From The Sunset Strip", in February 2013 via Frontiers.
