This month with news from: Black Majesty, DeVicious, Eunomia, Free From Sin, Lioncage, Once, Secret Rule, Squealer & The Radio Sun.



New album “II” available from July 20th, 2018!

One of our current highlight albums in PR is the new release from Swedish 80’s Hard Rock band FREE FROM SIN which is simply titled “II”.


The band has added new band members to the line-up which resulted in a much darker & heavier sounding release in comparison to the first one. Free From Sin is again going back to basics, with a classical 5 piece line-up, with hammond organ, guitar, bass & drums together with aggressively vivid vocals and now is featuring Per Englund (ex-Blacksmith, vocals), Patrik Lämborg (guitars), Fredrik Strömberg (keyboards), Ulf Kronsell (bass) and Paul Ekdahl (drums).

With strong influences from Deep Purple, Judas Priest, Rainbow, Iron Maiden etc., Free From Sin is again merging these ingredients in riff- based songs together with a modern sound. “II” was again produced by Mankan Sedenberg with Free From Sin at Pama Studios, Sweden.

Line-up: Per Englund (vocals), Patrik Lämborg (guitars), Fredrik Strömberg (keyboards), Ulf Kronsell (bass), Paul Ekdahl (drums)

The Radio Sun have worked very hard to build up their following by touring all over the world in support of each and every release. Performances in Japan, Europe, United States, United Kingdom and their home country Australia has showed the band's ability to rise. The Radio Sun are the first band to ever play Hard Rock Hell AOR Fest U.K four times in a row, whilst also having played at Melodic Rock Fest on four different occasions.


The four piece group is fronted by the charismatic Jason Old on lead vocals, guitar slinger Stevie Janevski, bassist Anthony Wong & drummer Gilbert Annese. With all four members singing backing vocals, the boys delve into layered vocal harmonies reminiscent of the classics - Queen, The Sweet & Def Leppard. This is not to say that they don't have their own sound. The Radio Sun have great unique hooks in their songs. The new album is another progression for the band, with songs like 'Hold On Tight' and 'Miss Wonderful' grooving like never before. 'As Long As You Want Me' and 'Five Years After' are both melodic bliss, boosted by a great production by Paul Laine (solo, The Defiants) and mastering by Bruno Ravel (Danger Danger, The Defiants).

The Radio Sun is feel good music and sounds just as strong acoustic or electric. Last year the boys performed acoustic shows in Japan and this year saw The Radio Sun invited to play the prestigious Sweden Rock Festival.


Currently in promotion: “Beautiful Strange” (in Europe only)
