Tony MacAlpine: nuovo album in arrivo a Settembre

Tony MacAlpine ha annunciato l’uscita di un nuovo disco, il primo dopo l’operazione subita per un tumore all’intestino.

L’album si intitolerà “Death of Roses” e verrà pubblicato il prossimo 1 Settembre per SunDog Records in formato CD, digitale e in una speciale versione 24-bit WAV scaricabile direttamente dal sito ufficiale dell’artista.
“Death Of Roses” comprenderà 7 brani e vedrà la partecipazione del batterista Gergo Borlai (Scott Henderson, Gary Willis, Hiram Bullock) e del bassista Pete Griffin (Generation Axe Tour, Giraffe Tongue Orchestra, Zappa Plays Zappa), che avevano già collaborato con MacAlpine nel suo precedente disco “Concrete Gardens”.

Il primo singolo estratto, intitolato “Chrome Castles”, è ora disponibile online:

On September 1, Tony MacAlpine will release his brand new album "Death of Roses" (SunDog Records) – his first album since his battle with cancer. The album will be available digitally through major online stores, plus available on CD, high quality download, and a special 24-bit WAV edition directly from Tony’s website at, or at the merch table on Tony's upcoming tour!The 7-track album is the first in a projected 2-part release. "Death of Roses" continues Tony’s on-going evolution with hook-laden melodies, breathtaking solos, complex rhythms and crushing 7 and 8-string guitar riffs, complemented by his own equally exceptional keyboards. This is built atop a formidable rhythmic foundation laid down by Hungarian drum sensation Gergo Borlai (Scott Henderson, Gary Willis, Hiram Bullock), and returning champ Pete Griffin – Bassist ( Generation Axe Tour, Giraffe Tongue Orchestra, Zappa Plays Zappa) who also played on Tony’s previous album "Concrete Gardens." Says Tony of the band: “Pete is one of my favorite bass players and his contribution to Death of Roses is as rock-solid as it is intricate. Through Pete’s recommendation I was thrilled to discover Gergo’s playing. He really blew me away with his work on the album. He’s unquestionably innovative and I look forward to getting even deeper with these guys on tour.”“With 'Death of Roses' I really focused on composition and layering,” says MacAlpine. “When I was sick and in treatment I found myself unable to play, and the chemo gave me tremors in my hands and arms. The seeds of this record were planted during my recovery, when I started building the compositions in my head. Fortunately, with healing and practice my faculties returned with a vengeance, and I set about recording this album, and its forthcoming companion.”During his illness in late 2015, his fellow musicians banded together for “A Benefit for Tony MacAlpine” at the Wiltern Theater in Los Angeles, featuring performances from Steve Vai, Mike Portnoy, Billy Sheehan, Derek Sherinian, John 5, Zakk Wylde, PAUL GILBERT, Nuno Bettencourt, Tom Morello, Richie Kotzen, and hosted by Eddie Trunk. The show also combined with an auction featuring items donated from a who’s who of rock royalty. “The outpouring of support I received from my fellow musicians and crew, fans, endorsements, and the music community at large was overwhelming and it moved me greatly. It served as a huge inspiration for me to get back in the saddle. This album is possible because of their help, and I dedicate it to them.”"Death of Roses" was mixed by LA-based Brazilian producer and engineer Adair Daufembach, and mastered by Seva David Louis Ball. “Adair and Seva both did really great work on my last album "Concrete Gardens," and they’ve outdone themselves again on Death of Roses.”As with any true artist, Tony remains driven by the desire to discover new ways to express himself through the music. “I’ve been releasing music for the last 3 decades, and in light of my recovery from recent health issues, I feel re-energized. I have so much more to say as a musician, and I hope you’ll join me for the ride.”Don't miss Tony's upcoming North American tour!
