NASA Joins Forces with Alan Parsons to Celebrate Apollo 11’s 50th Anniversary

It was July 20th, 1969. Much of the world was huddled around archaic black and white television sets, mesmerized by mankind’s first steps on another world. NASA – National Aeronautics and Space Administration‘s Apollo 11 mission had safely delivered American astronauts Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin to the surface of the moon and back. Meanwhile, that same month, a young 20-year-old British recording engineer named Alan Parsons was helping The Beatles put the finishing touches to what would become their penultimate release, Abbey Road.

From there, Alan would go on to become one of the most successful Producer/Engineers of all time, recording such world-class acts as Paul McCartney’s Wings, Pink Floyd, The Hollies (Official), Ambrosia, Al Stewart, and countless others before forming his own multi-platinum vehicle, The Alan Parsons Project.

A lot has changed in the last 50 years. The Apollo program is no longer active and the Beatles are no more, yet Parsons remains busier than ever.

After 13 nominations, Parsons finally won a Grammy this year for his classic album “Eye in the Sky: 35th Anniversary Immersive Edition”. This year also marked the release of Alan’s first album of new material in 15 years called #TheSecret. Just last month, the Alan Parsons Live Project teamed up with the world-renowned Israel Philharmonic – התזמורת הפילהרמונית הישראלית Orchestra for a pair of shows at Charles Bronfman Auditorium in Tel Aviv. The historic performances were captured on video by the producing & directing team of Trinity Houston and David Minasianand form the basis for Parsons’ latest audio/visual exploration #OneNoteSymphony.

Co-written by Parsons and fellow bandmates Todd Cooper (Sax & Vocals) and Tom Brooksmusic (Keyboards & Orchestral Arrangements), “One Note Symphony” tells of the universal sound the Earth makes as it travels through space. The video features the Alan Parsons Live Project band (which also includes Pj OlssonJeffKollmanDan TraceyGuy Erez, and Danny Thompson) performing alongside the Israel Philharmonic. This powerful track is further enhanced by breathtaking visuals taken from Writer/Director Bobby Bala’s upcoming sci-fi film The Shipment along with vintage Apollo footage provided by NASA.

Which of course brings this story full circle. The Alan Parsons Live Project has been selected to perform at the Cocoa Riverfront Park in Cocoa, FL this Saturday, July 13th in celebration of the #Apollo11 lunar landing. Rick Armstrong, the son of the first man to set foot on the surface of the moon is scheduled to perform as well with his band Edison’s Children. As Parsons himself has stated, this show will indeed “be one for the books.”

Join us on 07/13/2019, as this will be a unique and momentous event celebrating the 50th Anniversary of Apollo 11. With special guests among us, notably Rick Armstrong – son of the first man to walk the moon, this will indeed be one for the books.

New Kickstarter Campaign started offering rare Nektar memorabilia!

Nektar: The Legendary Rock Band are recording a new album! This is the first new studio album made in the United States since 1977!!

We put the old band back together to CELEBRATE the 50th ANNIVERSARY of NEKTAR!

The music for our new album “The Other Side” comes from the 1978 era when we were writing in Mo’s basement in Chatham, New Jersey. This music was put on pause for the last 40 YEARS and it’s now time to release it with new input and fresh ideas.

Frontiers Music Srl is pleased to announce the signing of BLUE ÖYSTER CULT!

For over four decades, Blue Oyster Cult has been thrilling fans of intelligent hard rock worldwide with powerful albums loaded with classic songs. Indeed, the Long Island, NY-­‐based band is revered within the hard rock and heavy metal scene for its pioneering work. BLUE ÖYSTER CULT occupies a unique place in rock history because it’s one of very few hard rock/heavy metal bands to earn both genuine mainstream critical acclaim as well as commercial success. Now they have partnered up with Frontiers Music Srl to continue their amazing journey!

“We are delighted to be able to bring back the iconic BLUE ÖYSTER CULT with the release of a wealth of musical material that will certainly please all the fans. Hard Rock music would not be what is now without BÖC and Frontiers is their natural “home”. We look forward to a long and fruitful cooperation!” – Serafino Perugino, Frontiers Records President.

“It’s been a long time since BÖC’s last studio album. Our biggest question from fans is ‘when are we going to do some new music?’ So we are ready to take this journey again. Recording with Danny, Richie and Jules should be a great experience as we’ve been touring together for years and Buck and I are looking forward to including them in the creative and recording process, say Eric Bloom.

“The current band is GREAT and has never been recorded other than the live concerts, so we feel now is the time for new songs to be written and recorded. About half of the songs for the new record exist and the rest will be finished during the process,” adds Buck Dharma.

A new studio album is expected to be released from the band in 2020. Fans can also expect to see remastered reissues (some with updated artwork) of four classic BÖC releases including:

1. Cult Classic (originally released in 1994) 
2. Heaven Forbid (originally released in 1998) [Not available for North / South America]
3. Curse of the Hidden Mirror originally released in 2001) [Not available for North / South America]
4. A Long Day’s Night (Live CD/DVD and Blu Ray) originally released in 2002 – Blu Ray version to be released for the first time)

Additionally, in 2020 the band will present five new live releases which include:

1. Live show from the iHeart Radio Theater 2012 (40th Anniversary).
2. Live show from Hard Rock Casino Cleveland 2014 
3. Live show from Rock of Ages Festival in Germany 2016  
4. 40th Anniversary of “Agents of Fortune” shot in L.A. in April 2017 [ “Agents of Fortune” album played front to back]
5. BӦC 45th Anniversary show Live in London June 17th 2017) [includes BÖC first album played in its entirety back to back]

BÖC is often cited as a major influence by other acts such as Metallica, and BÖC was listed in VH1’s countdown of the greatest hard rock bands of all time.

Upon the release of BÖC’s self-­‐titled debut album in 1972, the band was praised for its catchy-­‐yet-­‐heavy music and lyrics that could be provocative, terrifying, funny or ambiguous, often all in the same song. BÖC’s canon includes three stone-­‐cold classic songs that will waft through the cosmos long after the sun has burned out: The truly haunting “(Don’t Fear) The Reaper” from 1976’s Agents of Fortune, the pummeling “Godzilla” from 1977’s Spectres and the hypnotically melodic “Burnin’ for You” from1981’s Fire of Unknown Origin. Other notable BÖC songs include “Cities on Flame with Rock and Roll,” “Then Came the Last Days of May,” “I Love the Night,” “In Thee,””Veteran of the Psychic Wars,” “Dominance and Submission,” “Astronomy,” “Black Blade” and “Shooting Shark.”

The intense creative vision of BÖC’s original core duo of vocalist/lead guitarist Donald “Buck Dharma” Roeser, and vocalist/rhythm guitarist Eric Bloom are complemented by Richie Castellano on guitar and keyboards, and the longtime rhythm section of bass guitarist Danny Miranda, and drummer Jules Radino.

IQ proudly present their upcoming new album: RESISTANCE

Like the last album, The Road of Bones, there will be two discs: one with the official album and one with even more cracking new songs, two of them of + 20 mins length.

“This has been an interesting album to work on – years of talking about it and putting down all the different ideas in demo form, and then a frantic period of trying to finish it for the scheduled release date.

It would have been quite easy to put out ‘The Road of Bones Part 2’ but it felt a bit different this time and we just let the music dictate to us the kind of album it should be.

Again we had so much stuff kicking around when we were putting the running order together that we decided to do a second disc with the tunes that didn’t quite gel with the atmosphere of disc one. We did this before with The Road Of Bones and it proved to be really popular. We’re now coming round to thinking that the material on disc two is so strong that we should maybe make it an official double album. I have to say its quite liberating writing for an extended-release – the extra time allows you to give the music room to breathe and evolve which feels more organic, at least in my head it does. As a result, there are two 20 minute tracks on the second disc”.
