TNT: New Album Title Announced

Norwegian/British hard rockers TNT have set "The New Territory" as the title of their new album, due in May in Japan via Marquee Avalon and June in Europe via MTM Music. The CD, which is currently being mixed in Bergen, Norway, is described by TNT singer Tony Mills (ex-SHY) as "very diverse, with radio friendly tracks as well as the heavier side of life, some swing and some atmospherics. . . [It] has all the diversities that I personally had hoped for, with the balls of TNT and the elegance of QUEEN and the post-perspective of various '70s production attitudes. 'Something Special' rocks from top to bottom with complicated backing arrangements and 'I Cant Go On With This Feeling' smacks of the same color and underlying power. The album [was] completed with the direction of the producer H.P. Gundersen, who to me seems like a modern-day Andy WarholGeorge Martin. A very talented guy who can seem to create unthinkable arrangements and follow them through to their completion with great ease. An important find."

Regarding his working relationship with guitarist Ronni Le Tekro, Mills recently said, "It is a different experience working with Ronni. I should really have been working with him many years ago. He really is an inspiration to be around and it's very rare that you can disagree with him on an artistic plane, because he is always one step ahead. That's very reassuring. I don't think anyone can question his ability as a guitarist; I constantly find myself on stage with my mouth wide open, just taking it in, just getting blown away, if you like. But he's always so engrossed, like the artist that he is, that he never notices that, I'm sure. It is a real honour to work on stage with him. And indeed that goes for all the guys. I dont tend to hang around the studio when Ronni is concentrating on guitar, because no one knows his focus better then he does, and he doesn't tend to bother when I'm doing vocals either. He pops in and brings me a beer, gives me a big smile and leaves me to it. Bless him."
