TNT Comment On Reunion, Upcoming Plans

Reunited hard rockers TNT, whose recently-released "Best Of" collection, titled "The Big Bang — The Essential Collection" (Universal), was just certified gold in Norway, have commented on the band's reformation and upcoming album, tentatively due in September through MTM Music.

Tony Harnell (vocals): "It feels great to be back writing with Ronni and recording with the guys again. we have a great new spirit in the band which is evident in the new songs which I feel are our strongest ever. We have a great management team in place now and an excellent label in Europe. I couldn't be more positive about the future."

Ronnie Le Tekrö (guitar): "It`s been such a great experience for me to be able to play with the original line-up again. Based on the reviews in Norway, it seems like we're producing our best stuff so far. Me and Tony have been working very close on music and lyrics for the entire album and we feel we`re getting better and better as songwriters / performers. Can't wait to be on tour this year. TNT kicks!"

Morty Black (bass): "We are in the middle of the recording prosess right now, so it's a bit hard to say anything about the songs right now. I've mainly heard bass and the drums and a cue guitar so far, and that sounds GREAT -) The reformation of the band seems to me as a natural thing to do, especially now when the whole 80's era is shining again! This is after all the 80's lineup, and [drummer] Diesel [was] a strong contributor to the classic TNT sound we had since the early beginning! It feels natural to be together again, and I hope we can tour a lot in Germany this time around!! It's like putting on the old favorite shoes again :) There's sooo much more to experience all around the world, so I'm looking forward to do some gigs out there again!!!"
