Former Yngwie Malmsteen/Axel Rudi Pell and current Trans-Siberian Orchestra live vocalist Jeff Scott Soto posted a new video trailer for the new solo LP "Damage Control." The album will be released on March 23, 2012 (EU) and on March 27, 2012 (North America).
Soto had the following comments on the album: “I feel Damage Control is more of a return to what my fans would expect to hear from me. It’s a perfect blend of my first two solo albums with Frontiers Records; Prism and Lost in the Translation, but also mixes in some of my favorite moments of my past bands such as Talisman and Soul SirkUS. It is heavy, AOR, hard rock with loads of great riffs and melodies.”
“Damage Control” was recorded in the fall of 2011 and was co-written with former and current band mates together with many guests including Jamie Borger and Nalley Påhlsson (Treat), Casey Grillo (Kamelot), Joel Hoekstra (Night Ranger) and Y&T founding member/guitarist/vocalist Dave Meniketti.
Jeff commented on how the appearance of Meniketti came about: “Y&T drummer Mike Vanderhule played drums on a track and suggested I bring Dave on but, as he is a long time friend and one on the ‘wish list’ of people I would have loved to have, I didn’t want to get an excuse that he was too busy or not interested, to my surprise I got neither... he was willing to do it and I was not only grateful but beyond pleased to work with another musical hero!”
