– New ballads album „The Ballads V“ out April 21st, 2017 –

– Digital single and video for „Love’s Holding On“ feat. Bonnie Tyler out March 31st, 2017 –

„The Ballads V“ will be released through SPV/Steamhammer as CD digipack (incl. poster), double gatefold purple vinyl, limited boxset (incl. CD digipack, powerbank, CD slim case single, sticker, photocard – Europe only), download and stream.

For the very first time we welcome a special guest star: Rock legend Bonnie Tyler has recorded a stunning duet with Johnny Gioeli, which is called „Love´s Holding On“. Bonnie Tyler only records songs she personally likes. So I wrote this tune just for her and she really loved it. She came to the studio and we recorded it. The result is amazing ! If I hadn’t been a fan already, I would have turned into one instantly.
Of course this is not the only brand new track. We recorded a cover version of Ed Sheeran’s „I See Fire“, which turns much harder in the end, so we added our typical flavour to it.
„On The Edge Of Our Time“ is the third new recorded song and it’s another classic ARP style ballad with a great hookline.
One of your and our Show favorites from the last tour was „The Line“ and we decided to include this blistering Live version on this album. It was recorded during our 2016 „Rock Of Ages“ Festival show.
