BURNING RAIN Feat. DOUG ALDRICH, KEITH ST. JOHN, BRAD LANG, BLAS ELIAS: Video Of 'Face The Music' Record-Release Concert

BURNING RAIN, the hard rock band founded by guitarist extraordinaire Doug Aldrich (REVOLUTION SAINTS, THE DEAD DAISIES, WHITESNAKE, DIO) and vocalist Keith St. John (MONTROSE, KINGDOM COME), played a record-release show for its fourth studio album, "Face The Music", on March 29 at Count's Vamp'd in Las Vegas, Navada. Fan-filmed video footage of the concert can be seen below.

"Face The Music" came out on March 22 via Frontiers Music Srl.

BURNING RAIN was established in 1998 by Aldrich and St. John. After meeting through mutual friends, Aldrich and St. John commenced work on what would eventually become their self-titled debut album. The 1999 record established BURNING RAIN as a hungry-yet-seasoned group of musicians. Although the album was limited in its release, it did receive rave reviews from fans and critics alike for their take on heavy, bluesy hard rock. The following year, BURNING RAIN released the follow-up, "Pleasure To Burn", which showed a matured Aldrich-St. John collaboration that gained even higher praise than the first album.

In 2001, Aldrich joined DIO and later departed in 2003 as he was approached by David Coverdale to join a newly reformed WHITESNAKE, while St. John joined forces with guitar legend Ronnie Montrose. While still in WHITESNAKE, Aldrich started working on new BURNING RAIN music, which saw the light of day in 2013 as the album "Epic Obsession". Their third release was again met with enthusiams from fans and critics alike. Aldrich would later leave WHITESNAKE and join THE DEAD DAISIES and REVOLUTION SAINTS, which left BURNING RAIN on an extended hiatus.

"Face The Music" is a blues-driven hard rock record which is truly a tour de force. With a renewed lineup featuring Blas Elias (SLAUGHTER) on drums and Brad Lang (Y&T) on bass, the album evokes the sound of the classic '70s hard rock scene, but also stays true to the BURNING RAIN sound.
