STARGAZERY, the Finnish hard rock band fronted by the ex-MICHAEL SCHENKER GROUP vocalist Jari Tiura, has inked a deal with Pure Legend Records, the new sublabel of Pure Steel Records. The group's debut album, "Eye On The Sky", will be released in the first quarter of 2011. The CD was recorded and mixed at the HellGate and Reindeer Horns studios in Oulu, Finland and was mastered at the Bazement Studios. The cover artwork was created by Felipe Machado, who has previously worked with AXEL RUDI PELL, BLIND GUARDIAN, ICED EARTH and BLAZE BAYLEY.
Commented the band: "We all are very excited and happy to sign to Germany's Pure Legend Records, an specialized sublabel of the well-known Pure Steel Records. We've seen that the label has been raising their profile year after year and we are really looking forward to work with them in the future."
Added Pure Legend Records: "It's a dream to release such a gem as first release. STARGAZERY are playing exactly the honest kind of music we want to support with Pure Legend Records. Anything (instruments, compositions and sound) can only be called excellent. You hear and practically feel the professionalism of the individual musicians. A perfect album in this genre!"
