Norwegian/Spanish hard rockers TNT have released a short teaser video for their upcoming studio album, "XIII", which is due on June 8 via Frontiers Music Srl. The 20-second clip includes a first taste of the song "Get Ready For Some Hard Rock", which is featured on the disc. The full track is expected to be made avaiable later this week.
Spanish singer Baol Bardot Bulsara made his live debut with TNT last November at the Oslo Spektrum on Oslo, Norway, where the band performed as the support act for the SCORPIONS.
TNT said in a statement: "This will be a new chapter for TNT and we wish Baol Bardot Bulsara welcome as our new singer. We look forward to a new year with gigs and a new album coming up soon!"
Baol stated in a video message: "I'm very happy and very grateful to be here, to be a part of the TNT family now. This is a dream come true for me, actually, because I've been a fan of TNT since my teens. You could say I grew up listening to the band. So this is kind of a strange karma for me, you know. I just wanted to tell you that I'm here to continue with the legacy and hopefully see you all in the near future touring and having fun together."

TNT announced in October that it was once again parting ways with American vocalist Tony Harnell.
Harnell rejoined TNT in May 2016, less than a year and a half after his previous departure from the group.
At the time of Harnell's latest exit from TNT, the band was said to be working on a new studio album for a 2018 release via Frontiers Music Srl.
Harnell previously quit TNT in January 2015 after a 15-month stint with the band.
British singer Tony Mills appeared on three studio albums from TNT: 2007's "The New Territory", 2008's"Atlantis" and 2010's "A Farewell To Arms".
