Changes? Yeah, theyÆve had æem. Fallen off the path? Guilty. Slowed down? No way. Never. Full Circle, the new album from Grammy nominated, multiplatinum recording artists, Great White, teams up the rock and roll band once again with its original producer, Michael Wagener. ItÆs an honorable nod to their first EP Out of the Night (Aegean Records, 1983) and debut self-titled full-length record (EMI,1984). Wagener, is of course the legendary producer behind the iconic Alice Cooper, Megadeath, Metallica, Ozzy Osbourne and a slew of other rock gods. Full CircleÆs chemistry is palpable û WagenerÆs influence is immediately feltàbut take note, this is not one-and-done swan song for a band that has churned out chromium-laced hard rock since the early æ80s.
No, this is far from the word æfinished.Æ ItÆs back to work and back to where it starts û one song at a time.
Recorded at WagenerÆs Nashville-based WireWorld Studio, Great White spent the majority of January and February 2017 sequestered in Music City. Set for worldwide release, June 2, Full CircleÆs packaging includes a must-have companion DVD called "Making of Full Circle." Rockslide Entertainment (produced by Todd Sadowski) captured the band developing the songs in the studio û a never-before-seen band access. The footage is just another look at how Great White works together, puts egos aside for the love of their fans.
Much like 2012Æs Elation (Frontiers Records) the core song writing team of Mark Kendall, Michael Lardie and Terry Ilous worked heavily alongside Audie Desbrow and Scott Snyder. The first single, "Big Time" is a sharp, cutting track. Their swagger and gladiator attitude is first-hand knowledge, and the listener is galvanized.
In total, the 10 tracks on Full Circle range from the gut-punching "Give It Up," to the bass-heavy "Cry Of A Nation," the easily-embraced, more acoustic "Let Me In," to the dynamic "This Is The Life." Full Circle is overflowing with start-to-finish, balls to the wall, classic Great White triumphs.
"We canÆt thank our fans enough for being there with us over all of these decades," Kendall said. "It sounds insane to say decades, and when you think about it, thatÆs how long itÆs been since we worked with Michael Wagener. Being excited in the studio with him is an understatement û heÆs a driving force and a legend behind the soundboard."
"Great White is fueled by performing live û we love that energy that you canÆt find in the studio," Lardie said. "But, when you do get us working on a new record, thereÆs a bond that is forged û itÆs almost like alchemyàitÆs years of stories, heartache, momentum and love that we put to track."
Great White is Kendall (guitar), Lardie (guitar, keyboards), Desbrow (drums), Snyder (bass), and Ilous (vocals). Since 1982, the Great White sound has captivated audiences worldwide with crushing blues-based guitar riffs and swagger that invokes an emotional high for anyone that listens. The bandÆs core writing team of Lardie and Kendall forged numerous hits over the years, and when Desbrow joined in Æ85, the grooves hooked an amazing stride.
For nearly a decade, Snyder has merged his unforgiving rhythm to DesbrowÆs relentless percussion. And, in 2011, IlousÆ feverish energy and far-stretching vocals melted perfectly into the Great White mold. Kendall calls Ilous "the most consistent singer IÆve ever shared the stage with and a great all-around musician."
Best known for their Grammy nominated Best Hard Rock Performance hit, "Once Bitten, Twice Shy," Great White has sold over 10 million albums worldwide, has six Top 100 Billboard hits, nine Top 200 Billboard albums, two platinum albums, and clocked the top of MTV video four times.
To experience their hits live in concertù"Rock Me," "Mista Bone," "Save Your Love," "House of Broken Love," and "Lady Red Light"ùis to ride an emotional wave of sultry connections, arousing lyrics, and an all-out marathon of hard-hitting orchestrations.
Great White continues to tour worldwide and in the last two years logged nearly 200 dates in several states and countries. The band celebrated numerous milestones that included several sold-out performances, a return to the Zurich, SwitzerlandÆs Rock Im Tal Festival, and for the first time ever, a handful of intimate, acoustic performances.
They returned to the classic rock radio charts with "Complicated" off of 2012Æs Elation. The bandÆs 12th studio album, Elation, garnered high marks from numerous rock journalists behind the pesky "Something For You," the cheeky "Shotgun WillieÆs," and the emotional, Top 10 classic rock radio entry, "Hard To Say Goodbye."
George Lynch came to fame in the 1980s through his work as the lead guitarist in the band Dokken. Dokken had a string of successful Platinum albums including "Under Lock and Key" and "Back For The Attack," both of which featured Lynch's inventive and intricate guitar work, including his signature instrumental track "Mr. Scary."
Lynch Mob was formed in 1989, from the ashes of GeorgeÆs former band, Dokken. The band original line-up also featured Dokken's drummer, Mick Brown. The first Lynch Mob album was released in 1990, titled Wicked Sensation peaking at #46 on the US Charts. Subsequent releases included Lynch Mob (1992) US #56, Syzygy 1995, Smoke This (1999), Revolution (2003), Smoke And Mirrors (2009), Sound Mountain Sessions (2012), Unplugged- Live from Sugar Hill Studio (2013), Sun Ted Sun (2013), Rebel (2015), & the latest record The Brotherhood (2017).
