One of the UK’s top melodic rock bands will release their new album “Siren” through AOR Heaven on July 19th
Since 1998 melodic rock artist Newman have been producing consistently high quality albums filled with hook laden songs and thought provoking lyrics.
Now, after a break of 2 years, following a studio upgrade and relocation, Newman return with their 10th Studio album and once again the collaboration with AOR Heaven continues.
“Siren” is a rock album through and through, taking influences from the whole of Newman’s career to date. Powerful song writing backed by a powerful production. Driving guitars feature with the strength of hooks and chorus’s that this artist is renowned for.
This time around, as with the last few studio albums, Steve is joined by the highly talented session drummer Rob McEwen, but has also brought in a few familiar guests to enhance the sound and songwriting process. From the Newman live band, guitarist Shaun Bessant guests on “When It Comes To Love” and guitarist Robert Säll (Work Of Art, W.E.T.) guests on “Feel Her Again”. In the songwriting department, Steve has joined forces with Pete Newdeck (Eden’s Curse, Tainted Nation) for the songs “Some Kind Of Wonderful” and “Waiting For The Day”. Steve’s long time friend, who also appeared on 1999’s “One Step Closer” album, Nick Workman (Vega, Kick) co-writes on the uplifting “When It Comes To Love”. Both Pete and Nick also contribute backing vocals.
