MAD MAX: New Album Details Revealed

25 years after the release of the legendary "Night Of Passion" album, German hard rock band MAD MAX returns with the original lineup — Michael Voss (lead vocals, lead guitars), Jürgen Breforth (rhythm guitars), Roland Bergmann (bass, vocals) and Axel Kruse (drums) — and a new studio album, "Another Night Of Passion", due on March 23, 2012 (three days later in Europe) via SPV/Steamhammer. The CD was recorded at the Kidroom Studio, which is owned by Michael Voss and where albums from Michael Schenker, VENGEANCE and Gary Barden were previously produced. The cover artwork was designed by the Belgian artist Eric Philippe (RHAPSODY, TNT) and the photos were taken by the famous German photographer Martin Huch.

"The new record could have been a direct [follow-up] to 'Night Of Passion' in terms of its stylistic direction — no ballads, no keyboards, just purebred rock songs – naturally in a contemporary sonic guise," explains MAD MAX guitarist Jürgen Breforth, who recorded the new CD with vocalist Michael Voss, bassist Roland Bergmann and drummer Axel Kruse.

"Another Night Of Passion" will be made available as a jewel case featuring eleven songs, and in a limited-edition digipak, containing the bonus CD "Official Bootleg - Live In Berlin".
