WildeStarr To Release New Album "Beyond The Rain"

WildeStarr - featuring the combined talents of 3 of the most dynamic musicians in heavy metal today: Dave Starr (Vicious Rumors, Chastain) on all guitars & bass, London Wilde on vocals (who many regard as highly as Rob Halford, Dio, and Geoff Tate), and power house Josh Foster on drums - are geared up to release the new album "Beyond the Rain" via Scarlet Records on December 8th.

Through three studio albums ("Arrival," in 2010; "A Tell Tale Heart," in 2012; and now with "Beyond The Rain," in 2017), WildeStarr has established itself as the master of its craft with melodic and aggressive metal full of drama, and conveyed via a huge wall of sound. Husband and wife team Dave Starr and London Wilde have been friends for 30 years, and married for over 15 now. This makes the songwriting and chemistry very special and unique in the world of heavy metal.

"Beyond The Rain" takes the listener on a harrowing ride and emotional roller coaster. Some might think its a concept album, but its actually much more than that. The songs are London Wilde's lyrical expression of pain, torment, hope, and love based on the real life tragic suicide of her brother Gary in 2012. Gary was a gifted musician who suffered the sad pitfalls of many others who pickup the guitar and dream of success in the music biz. After his death, Gary essentially became a not so silent fourth member of the band, and his presence and spirit was deeply felt throughout the songwriting and recording process.

The track listing is:

1. Metamorphose
2. Beyond The Rain
3. Pressing The Wires
4. Double Red
5. Down Cold
6. Rage And Water
7. Crimson Fifths
8. Undersold
9. From Shadow
10. When The Night Falls More...
