Drum legend John Macaluso (TNT, ARK, YNGWIE MALMSTEEN, JAMES LABRIE, STARBREAKER) will release his new album, entitled "John Macaluso & Union Radio - The Radio Waves Goodbye", on May 25 via Lion Music. Guest musicians on the CD include James LaBrie (DREAM THEATER), keyboardist Vitalij Kuprij, singer Mike DiMeo (MASTERPLAN, ex-RIOT) and guitarists Chris Caffery (SAVATAGE, TRANS-SIBERIAN ORCHESTRA), Alex Masi and Marco Sfogli (JAMES LABRIE).Macaluso previously stated about the LP: "This album to me is an influence of PINK FLOYD and BLACK SABBATH to me, with drumming twice the speed. I have spent a year and a half working on it, gathering all my best friends in the music world together. I wrote music and lyrics for my band ARK, but this is the first time where I am writing words, music, and vocal melodies. It is my baby and has come out better than ever expected because all the friends on the record have kicked and performed incredibly on it. I have 12 songs and a drum solo on it. There is a drumming influence of my drumming idol Terry Bozzio of course, mixed with moody Nick Mason styles and a heavy techno drum and bass vibe. This type of drumming with FLOYD-type vibes makes for something I personally have never heard before."
