Frontiers Records has announced the signing of the British three-piece rock band called THREE LIONS. This new group consists of Vinny Burns (DARE, TEN, ASIA) on guitar, Greg Morgan (DARE, TEN) on drums and introduces the talents of Nigel Bailey on vocals and bass guitar.
THREE LIONS formed when Vinny, Greg and Nigel were introduced by Frontiers Records president Serafino Perugino to producer Alessandro Del Vecchio at Firefest in October 2012. The guys hit it off straight away and immediately set about writing new material for an album. The songs were written without an agenda and these songs were sent to Perugino for consideration, who loved the material and immediately commissioned an album. 12 songs were chosen, (two of which see the band collaborating with Del Vecchio) and recording commenced at The Viper Room and Coil Tap Studios in the U.K. and then at Ivory Tears Studio in Milan, Italy.
"We set out to write good songs, the only criteria was that all of us liked them," said Nigel Bailey. "Working with Vinny and Greg has been a blast and we were all determined to make the best album possible and are immensely proud of the songs that have made it onto the final record."
From the Eastern-influenced "Kathmandu", to the driving power of "Hellfire Highway" and "Twisted Soul", to the heartfelt ballads "Made For One Another" and "Don't Let Me Fall", this new album in the works promises to deliver passionate performances from the guys. Vinny's trademark guitar work is, as you would expect, filled with emotion and feel.
"I wanted to start with a blank canvas for the guitars," says Vinny. "This album allowed me to show a different side to my playing whilst retaining the familiar sound and feel fans of DARE and TEN will recognize."
"Working with Vinny again has been great fun and Nigel brings something new to the table," said Greg. "This is definitely a record made by a band, not just a studio project, and that really comes across in the songs. We had an instant connection as musicians but also as people and we cannot wait to get out and perform these songs live soon."
THREE LIONS WILL make its live debut supporting SNAKECHARMER at the Manchester Academy on Friday, June 21.
