ASPHALT VALENTINE Announce Release Date & Details For'Twisted Road' Set For Release in 2020
HighVolMusic and Asphalt Valentine announce February 28, 2020 as the worldwide release date for the group’s new studio album, 'Twisted Road'.
About The Music
Vocalist Joe Flynt states: “The whole band is excited to be releasing another record. It's been 5 years or so since we did the "Into The Red'" E.P and a lot has changed with the band. We almost called it a day a while back but then I got a call from another band from the area to fill in on vocals. While I was out on the road with them my creative energy started to flow again. When I got back from the road, I was so fired up and ready to get back at it I called the guys up and we started to finish writing and recording "Twisted Road". It all came together pretty quickly once everyone was back in band mode. I feel like we’ve put together something really special, and I'm looking forward to hearing what the fans think about it. We're all so proud of this album. It’s definitely a big jump from our previous efforts and the material is so much stronger now.”
HVM CEO, Bill Chavis adds: “Joe called me about getting back in the game and asked if I would be interested in listening to some new material. I said sure, I've always love what AV has done. We released "Strip Rock Roll " back in 08/09 and its such a great record but the new material is just so much more. It's simply amazing and really really strong. 2020 is going to be an extremely exciting year for Asphalt Valentine. This third album is the going to take people by surprise. Mark my words, you will love this album!”
About Asphalt Valentine
Asphalt Valentine is based in Atlanta, GA and got its start in the early 2000's. They signed with Chavis Records now HighVolMusic and released their debut "Strip Rock Roll " in 2008.
The band toured the U.S. with Mama Kin from Sweden on the 'Summer of Sin Tour'. In 2013 the band self released their "Into The Red'" E.P" as well as released a video for the track
"Living Dreams'". In 2015 the band began working on what is now "Twisted Road" and released a video for the track "The Only" before going on hiatus. "The Only" was originally conceived when the band was approached by author/film maker/adventurist Joey Shonka to write some music for one of his documentary-style films "Shonka", a life long friend of vocalist Joe Flynt, specifically wanted something to accompany his latest movie about his years long journey across the entire Andes Mountains range in South America - a journey he did alone. "The Only" conveys the physical and emotional toll of isolation, endless perseverance, and the spiritual connection one must make within themselves to strive onward in one of the most formidable environments on planet Earth. The video contains footage of the recording sessions as well as clips from Shonka's latest self-shot movie "The Shonkadventure".
With renewed excitement and energy the band returned to work on the recordings and as previously announced, Asphalt Valentine signed with HighVolMusic in 2019 before putting the final touches on the album. "Twisted Road" was recorded at Dirty Little Secret Studios in Atlanta, GA and is self produced. Mixing is being handled by Andy Reilly (Asia, Praying Mantis, UFO) at Muse Productions also in Atlanta, GA. The first single and title track 'Twisted Road' hits radio this week and is being quarterbacked by Jody Best of Best Bet Promo.

About Revolution Saints
Revolution Saints have now completed their incredible third album, “Rise”. As with the first two well-received albums, Rev Saints (as the fans like to call them) are bringing back the classic melodic rock style that thrilled and delighted legions of fans in the ‘80s and ‘90s and still does today!
Inspiring, uplifting vocals, soaring melodies, and musicianship to die for is what you get in spades here. Simply put, it is completely badass.
Superbly handling drums and lead vocals is the one and only Deen Castronovo. Already renowned for his drum talents and backing vocals in Journey, Bad English, and more, Deen's excellent vocal talents are once again receiving a well-deserved spotlight on this release.
On bass, and co-lead vocals on a few tracks, Jack Blades is well known for his melodic, yet hard rocking approach to songwriting and playing via multiple classic albums by his main band Night Ranger, as well as with the Damn Yankees and the Shaw/Blades releases.
On guitar, Doug Aldrich lends his fiery guitar attack to round out this dream-come-true melodic rock band. Doug, who left Whitesnake after a fruitful 12 year run (including co-writing 2010’s critically acclaimed "Forevermore" release) and also of Burning Rain and formerly of DIO, has a deep pedigree and is one of today’s most respected rock guitarists.
You can tell by the name - and the names involved - that REVOLUTION SAINTS is not going to be your average rock 'n roll band. The project is the vision of Frontiers' President Serafino Perugino, who for years had hoped to work on a project where Deen would be the lead vocalist. Having previously worked with all three artists on different projects on Frontiers, having Deen, Jack and Doug on board together was a dream come true for Perugino. With production overseen by more and more in demand in-house Frontiers man, Alessandro Del Vecchio, the recording process took place in Milan and in Doug and Jack’s own studios in California and Seattle. Songwriting was handled by Del Vecchio, Aldrich, and Blades with contributions from fellow Frontiers recording artist Dan Rossall (of UK newcomers PASSION).
Of special note, the poignant ballad “Eyes Of A Child” was penned by Jack Blades and Tommy Shaw.
REVOLUTION SAINTS' music is played with a heart, soul, and spirit that shines through in the music.
These songs highlight the passion and enthusiasm of three of the best all-around rock ‘n roll musicians in the game today.
Truly, lovers of melodic rock have a new favorite album on their hands!
