REB BEACH Expects Writing Sessions For New WINGER Album To Go Very Quickly

WINGER guitarist Reb Beach has confirmed to the "BREWtally Speaking Podcast" that there are tentative plans for the band to work on new material next month. The disc will be the follow-up to "Better Days Comin'", which came out in 2014.

"In August, I'll go to [WINGER frontman] Kip's [Winger] house and hang out with Kip," Reb said (hear audio below). "And we're gonna hit the 10 a.m. in the studio until 7 p.m. every day and write an album. The last time, we wrote it in two weeks. And the time before that, we did it in 10 days. On [2009's] 'Karma', we wrote 10 songs in 10 days, and we wrote it front to back. So, on the first day, we wrote what we knew was gonna be the first song on the record. And then we said, 'Okay, what do we want to be the second song on the record?' And [we] just kind of already knew what the lineup was gonna be."

In addition to WINGER, Beach has toured and recorded with DOKKEN, NIGHT RANGER and ALICE COOPER. Since 2002, his main focus has been WHITESNAKE.

WINGER formed in the late 1980s and soared to immediate success with its 1988 self-titled release. The album spawned the hit singles "Seventeen" and "Headed For A Heartbreak" and achieved platinum sales status. "Winger" also stayed on The Billboard 200 chart for over 60 weeks where it peaked at #21. Their next album, "In The Heart Of The Young", also achieved platinum status behind the singles "Can't Get Enuff" and "Miles Away". The change in musical climate of the mid-'90s, compounded with unprovoked ridicule on MTV's popular "Beavis And Butt-Head" show, led the band to go on hiatus in 1994. In 2001, WINGER reunited and has not looked back since.

Kip also earned a 2016 Grammy nomination for the classical album "C.F. Kip Winger: Conversations With Nijinsky", recorded with the San Francisco Ballet Orchestra.
