DE LA CRUZ
Frontiers Records is pleased to announce the signing of Australian band DE LA CRUZ for the release of their forthcoming debut album which will be entitled "Street Level".
Described by Geoff Barton of Classic Rock Magazine: "like a Pomptastic, Hyper-active Leppard!", DE LA CRUZ debuted with a self financed 6 songs EP which caused a stir in the Hard Rock scene Worldwide.
Founded in 2011 after Gold Coast guitarist Casey Jones met with Auckland-born singer Roxxi Catalano, the guys immediately had the vision to start an 80s style rock band. Casey knew the best musicians to complete their lineup, Lacey Lane on drums, Grant Daniell on bass and the second guitarist Rory Joy.
DE LA CRUZ came to the attention of Frontiers Records in the winter of 2012 and they finally decided to join forces. Frontiers will release the band's first full length album entitled "Street Level" in early 2013. In the meanwhile all fans of classic Leppard, Skid Row, Kiss and Motley Crue should immediately check out the new album teaser following this link: www.youtube.com/watch?v=YHvG3-UkCAA&feature=plcp

NEAL SCHON continues on his Journey with the release of “The Calling”; new solo album out now “The Calling” video makes worldwide premiere on CBS’ the insider
Iconic rock guitarist Neal Schon has a lot to celebrate! Schon’s highly-acclaimed new solo album THE CALLING hits streets worldwide today via Frontiers Records. The video for the title track just premiered on CBS’ The Insider and can be viewed here. Neal once again teamed up with Dan Barnett (Journey: Live In Manila) to co-produce the video. Filmed entirely in San Francisco and Marin County, “The Calling” video also features Schon’s fiancée, Michaele Salahi (the couple just became engaged when Schon popped the question on stage during a Journey concert). The video can be purchased at iTunes, while the full album can be purchased at iTunes here and Amazon here.
THE CALLING has been receiving rave reviews from the international media, with the US’ Guitar Player declaring, “It’s a thrilling, edgy, ballsy, inspiring, and beautiful work that sounds as purposely constructed as a symphony piece. Less-blessed composers and guitarists can now take a moment to cry…” and the UK’s Classic Rock proclaiming, “…a musical masterclass.” THE CALLING is produced by, and features, Neal Schon on all guitars and bass, and reunites Schon with former Journey bandmate, Steve Smith, who lends his virtuoso drum talents to all 12 tracks on the new album. In addition, Grammy® Award-winning special guest Jan Hammer (Jeff Beck, Mahavishnu Orchestra,) recorded Moog synthesizer solos on two tracks - “Fifty Six (56)” and “Tumbleweeds” and Igor Len, an accomplished classical, jazz and film composer who has previously collaborated with Schon, is featured on acoustic piano throughout the album. Recorded at Berkeley’s famed Fantasy Studios during a break from Journey’s busy touring schedule, Neal completed the album from start to finish in just four days.
Neal Schon has earned 19 Top 40 singles and 25 gold and platinum albums, was awarded the prestigious “Legend Of Live Award” at the 2011 Billboard Touring Awards, and received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2005. As the only member to record on all of Journey’s albums, Schon continues to lead the band today in its latest incarnation. In demand as one of the leading guitarists of his generation, Schon uses custom PRS Neal Schon LTD Private Stock guitars made especially for Neal by Paul Reed Smith.
