PAT TRAVERS BAND To Release 'Can Do' In July

Frontiers Records will release PAT TRAVERS BAND's new album, "Can Do", on July 5 in Europe and July 9 in North America.

Toronto-born Pat Travers has delivered one tasty release after another in his over 37 years career in music. From the powerhouse, rockin' '70s sound of such albums as "Heat In The Street" and "Makin' Magic" to the classy melodic Eighties rock before a blues period in the Nineties, Pat has always kept a high standard for his musical output.

"When I was contacted by Frontiers to record a new original studio album, they asked me if I could create some music reminiscent of my earlier albums that were done in the U.K. and South Florida in the late '70's and early '80s," says Pat. "What made those records different was that I was allowed the luxury of spending some time in the studio without any outside influences and that's when I could get really creative. Frontiers Records let me have the time I needed to work on the songs and production. Also, the beginning of 2012 was a particularly creative period for me and I believe I have written some of my best material ever for 'Can Do'."

Since the second decade of the Millennium dawned, Pat and his band show no sign of letting up. The proof of the future are safe in the eight hands of Mr. Travers, second guitarist Kirk McKim, bassist Rodney O'Quinn and longtime sticksman Sandy Gennaro.

"We had a fantastic collaboration and I felt very comfortable when tracking the new music," says Pat. "I really feel that the sound and production and also the quality of the songs and performances make this what I think my fans are going to call 'a classic Pat Travers record.'"
