German hard rock singer Michael Kiske (UNISONIC, PLACE VENDOME, HELLOWEEN, AVANTASIA) was interviewed for the latest installment of "MSRcast". Listen in as Kiske discusses all of his projects, including his solo work, AVANTASIA, KISKE-SOMERVILLE, UNISONIC, his work with Timo Tolkki, and yes, even HELLOWEEN.
PLACE VENDOME's third album, "Thunder In The Distance", was released on November 1 in Europe and November 5 in North America via Frontiers Records.
PLACE VENDOME is the melodic rock project featuring Kiske on all lead vocals and production from Dennis Ward (PINK CREAM 69).
PLACE VENDOME started in 2004 when Kiske, following a self-imposed exile from the rock and metal scene which lasted a few years after his departure from HELLOWEEN and solo career, accepted an offer in 2004 to be part of a melodic rock-oriented concept put together by Frontiers Records president Serafino Perugino.
UNISONIC, the band featuring Kiske and GAMMA RAY/ex-HELLOWEEN guitarist/vocalist Kai Hansen alongside guitarist Mandy Meyer (ASIA, GOTTHARD and KROKUS), bassist Dennis Ward and drummer Kosta Zafiriou (both of Germany's PINK CREAM 69), is working on ideas for its second full-length album, to be released in 2014.
UNISONIC's self-titled debut studio CD was released in North America on May 22, 2012 via Eagle Rock imprint Armoury Records.
