Frontiers Records has announced the signing of VEGA, the new U.K.-based melodic rock band featuring former KICK vocalist Nick Workman alongside the successful and respected songwriting partnership of Tom and James Martin (HOUSE OF LORDS, TED POLEY, KHYMERA, SUNSTORM) and drummer Dan Chantrey.

According to a press release, "VEGA are set to bring back the reputation of British melodic rock music with a strongly original sound approach that while obviously influenced by the genre’s greatest names (from BON JOVI to DEF LEPPARD and JOURNEY) adds a strong personal element that will definitely bring the band to the attention of a very wide audience."

VEGA's debut album, "Kiss Of Life", was recorded with producer John Greatwood (engineer for Tom Lord-Alge of QUEEN fame), with the band selecting a total of 12 songs out of a total of 25 that were written for the effort. Dennis Ward (PINK CREAM 69) stepped up to the plate to put the finishing touches on the album, having mastered it at his studio in Germany. The band also recently finished filming a video for the CD's title track, which will be launched as first single in the fall.

Commented Workman: "We are pleased and excited to be signed to Frontiers Records. We are very proud of this album and believe that it brings new vibe to the rock scene whilst maintaining the roots of all of the bands that have inspired us over the years!"

"Kiss Of Life" will be released before the end of the year.
