The new album is due for release this coming November 2013 in Europe and Asia, and mid-January 2014 in North America. More...
Now Or Never was formed in 2012 when ex-Pretty Maids guitarist Ricky Marx hooked up with drummer Fabian Ranzoni. Quickly after, they were joined by long time friends, vocalist Jo Amore (Nightmare) and former Pretty Maids bassist Kenn Jackson. The band entered into Peek Studios in Southern France with producer Pat Liotard to record the debut self-titled release.
The band's sound is an exciting convergence of hard rock and metal with a modern kick - complete with power, energy and mature songwriting. The mix of the album was finished just days ago and Metal Underground is the first to present the world with the exclusive premiere of the new track "Reach Out (For The Sky)."
Marx provided some detail on the song: "The song is about life and how you live on a daily basis, where nothing comes on a plate. You need to work it out on your own to make things happen. I wrote part of it in Denmark when I was at Kenn's place (after a 'mega liquid' night) and the rest at Jo's place while we were working on the vocal melodies. Ranzo wrote most of the lyrics on the album, and I wrote the rest, like 'Brothers' and 'Something's Missing' (song and lyrics were written in half a day at Joe's with an acoustic guitar)."
Marx also commented on the band: "The important thing in this band is that there is great cohesion and everyone is always a good mood. There are no egos, and that is very important for me. We've all been there already, recorded, played everywhere and I tell u, it is so nice to play and enjoy real friendships!"
He went on to talk about working with producer Pat Liotard: "Working with Pat was amazing, creative, nice....he is a good musician and pro. I think we managed to get something new out of Jo [Amore] and a good overall musical print. We where big during the 80's and 90's for some of us...some still now and we are so willing to give a full blast!" More...
