Winger's New Album, "Karma," Details and Tour Dates Revealed

Frontiers Records has announced the official release date of WINGER’s fifth studio album entitled “Karma” as October 16th in Europe and October 27th in the USA.

WINGER reunited after more than a decade in 2006 for the release of the successful come back album entitled “IV,” dealing with the concept of the military life and what it was like to be a soldier, from a soldier’s perspective, leaving politics at the door. “After Winger IV we toured the United States, Europe, Australia and Japan during which made a live record” says Kip Winger. “When the chance came up to do a new Winger record, I envisioned a upbeat totally rocking record that was a cross between the 1st Winger album and Pull. So Reb and I sat down and wrote all the music in a month or so. I worked for 6 months to finish it in the classic Winger style”.

The title itself “Karma” represents Winger completing its full musical circle as Kip Winger explains “We were discussing the very interesting path the band has had and we have all been through so much together. So we went for “Karma” as this is a word that truly sums up the experience of being in the band.”

“Usually Winger fans don’t 'expect' anything because they know we do what we feel like doing artistically,” explains Kip. “It is not a commercially driven band. I can say that the songs are very upbeat”. Reb Beach adds: “It's a very up-tempo riff driven rocking record. It has the elements of vintage Winger from ‘89 but has the blood, sweat and tears of years 20 years of writing, recording and touring!”

“Karma” will be released with the first pressing in limited digipak edition and includes the following songs:

Deal With The Devil
Stone Cold Killer
Big World Away
Come A Little Closer
Pull Me Under
Supernova
Always Within Me
Feeding Frenzy
After All This Time
Witness
First Ending (Bonus Track)

Also included there will be an Electronic Press Kit, with footage filmed in the studio during the recording sessions, that is playable on all computers as an interactive bonus.
