Place Vendome Announces "Close To The Sun" Album

Frontiers Music Srl is excited to announce the release of the brand new Place Vendome album, “Close to the Sun” on February 24th, 2017.

One of the most popular projects put together over the years by Frontiers' President Serafino Perugino, Place Vendome was an idea sparked during a phone conversation between Serafino and former Helloween singer Michael Kiske, where they discussed their common passion for several melodic rock giants of the 80’s. The Hamburg singer agreed to be part of a studio project where he would sign songs written especially for him by various writers with an AOR/melodic rock flavor.

The amazing reception of the first Place Vendome album released in 2005 planted the seeds for a second recording, “Streets of Fire," which was recorded during 2008 and for a third album, “Thunder in the Distance,” which was released in 2013. Being a project so close to Kiske’s heart, it was agreed during 2016 that work on a new album would start with his Unisonic (official) bandmate Dennis Ward at the production helm, as usual. More...

New Place Vendome Album Close To Completion

Frontiers Records announced that the new Place Vendome - the band featuring Michael Kiske (ex-Helloween) - album is close to completion. The title of this new recording will be "Thunder In The Distance" and like all the previous releases, sees singer Kiske singing on tracks produced and mixed by Dennis Ward (Pink Cream 69), which were written especially for the album by different writers including: Magnus Karlsson (Primal Fear), Timo Tolkki (ex Stratovarius), Alessandro Del Vecchio (Hardline), Tommy Denander (Radioactive), Sören Kronqvist (Sunstorm, Issa), Andrea Cantarelli (Labyrinth, A Perfect Day) and Brett Jones under the supervision of executive producer Serafino Perugino.

Some of the new song titles include "My Heart Is Dying," "Fragile Ground," "Break Out," "Maybe Tomorrow," "Power of Music," "Lost in Paradise," "Hold Your Love," "It Can' Rain Forever" and the title track, among others. Style wise it will be the logical progression, where the previous album "Streets of Fire" left off with highly melodic rock anthems, some power ballads and some interesting twists.

Frontiers plans the worldwide release of the album in early November - more details to be released shortly.
