COLORVINE (formerly Tower City) Release ‘Radio Days’ Fan Video

US rock band COLORVINE (formerly TOWER CITY) have released a fan video for ‘Radio Days’, the track is taken from their new melodic rock album ‘Wake Up‘, which was released in Europe on July 5th, 2019 via CV Media Group/Cargo Records UK.

This isn’t the typical “come-back” story, though. Forget the band previously signed with Warner BrothersInterscope and Atlantic, and were managed by Don Arden (the music industry legend who worked with rock icons like Ozzy OsborneJerry Lee Lewis and Electric Light Orchestra). For the band today, it’s 100% about the music, and the way it’s meant to be experienced.

Tracklist:

1. Like A Rocket
2. Victory Song
3. Wake Up
4. Radio Days
5. Change In The Weather
6. Smoke
7. Happy Broken Heart
8. Be The One
9. Closer
10. Say You Love Me

The album was recorded and mixed by Colorvine at The Fenix Room. Mastered by Ken Love (DeGarmo & KeyGreg X VolzHoly SoldierSpock’s BeardNeal Morse) at Sweetwater Studios

The song ‘Radio Days‘ really states what this album is about. We want to bring people back to those days of turning up the radio and singing our favorite songs – even listening to an entire album like we used to!” said band co-founder Heath Saltis. Grammy-nominated band mates Heath and Larry Saltis describe the new album as “a true passion project and labor of love two years in the making.

With a focus on “giving the people what they want,” Colorvine proves they can still excite listeners with their own brand of melodic rock that mixes past and present; from Wake Up‘s first track to its last, the album blends multiple genres into a single harmonic tour de force. It’s a refreshing change, in the era of single digital downloads, to listen to an album carefully crafted for a beginning-to-end experience.

“They say that a change is as good as a rest,” writes music reviewer Dave Franklin, “but in the case of Colorvine, this rest seems to have brought them back both hungry, energized and brilliantly focused as songwriters.

Setting the pace for the rest of the album, Wake Up‘s first track “Like A Rocket” is the perfect opener to announce Colorvine‘s return with a chorus that invites the listener to join them as they “run and chase the music they love.” The album’s first single, “Victory Song,” features big harmonies, infectious drum beats, and in-your-face guitar chords that will have you pressing repeat as soon as the song finishes. This is a high-energy and highly relatable song that celebrates rising above life’s challenges. And the album’s title track “Wake Up” may very well have the widest appeal as it challenges listeners to find their own meaning within the lyrics.

Colorvine is:

Larry Saltis – Lead Vocals, Guitar (Tower City, New Monkees)
Heath Saltis – Drums, Percussion, Keyboards, Background Vocals (Tower City)
Kurt Reed – Bass Guitar, Background Vocals

We are digging the new Colorvine album…sounds like Tower City with a modern edge.” – Tom Martin of VEGA

Blatantly current and instantly relatable song lyrics with a solid rock foundation. Progressive and retro at the same time…I don’t know if I’m listening to the past or the present.” – Matthew Long of Aftermaster Audio Labs

Catch Colorvine on tour with Foreigner during the Summer 2019.

Upcoming Shows:

July 26 Akron OH Album Release Show

About Louise Swift

I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot! My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!' The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;) Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
