VANDENBERG return on May 29 with a new studio album titled 2020 via Mascot Records. The band and label present a new lyric video for “Freight Train,” which can be viewed here: https://youtu.be/hqrSfC-kej8. Adrian Vandenberg shares, “Like a Freight Train! This is a song about character, determination and perseverance, things we all need in challenging times like these. We got this!” Earlier this year, the band released a new version of their classic song ‘Burning Heart’ as well as new recording ‘Shadows of the Night’, both taken from their upcoming new album which was produced by Bob Marlette (Black Sabbath, Alice Cooper, Marilyn Manson, Rob Zombie).
Vandenberg. A name with an illustrious past. Led by master guitarist Adrian Vandenberg, the Dutch foursome released three quality albums during the early to mid-’80s, including the self-titled 1982 debut, which spawned the US hit single ‘Burning Heart’. The band toured the US, Japan and Europe playing with the likes of Ozzy Osbourne, KISS, Rush, Scorpions, Michael Schenker and more. He was a member of Whitesnake for 13 years at the height of their fame, contributing the solo on their #1 hit ‘Here I Go Again,’ was part of supergroup Manic Eden and more recently, Vandenberg’s Moonkings.
The guitarist pulled a masterstroke by bringing in Chilean born Ronnie Romero on vocals; who’s forged a formidable reputation over the past few years with Ritchie Blackmore’s Rainbow. The rhythm section for the new line-up features bassist Randy van der Elsen (of NWOBHM heroes Tank) and drummer Koen Herfst, (Epica and Doro). There are also two celebrated guests on the album, namely bassist Rudy Sarzo (Whitesnake, Ozzy Osbourne, Quiet Riot, Dio, Queensryche) and drummer Brian Tichy (Whitesnake, Ozzy Osbourne, Foreigner, Billy Idol).
“I believe the vibe we have with this turbocharged line-up is wonderful,” concludes Vandenberg. “We are not at all a nostalgia act, trying to recreate what happened all those years back. This is a brand new dynamic band with a name that has a legacy and I couldn’t be happier with the way it’s turned out.”
