Vocalist Robin McAuley (McAuley Schenker Group), guitarist Reb Beach (Winger, Whitesnake), bassist Jeff Pilson (Foreigner, The End Machine, ex-Dokken) and drummer Matt Starr (Ace Frehley, Mr. Big) have joined forces in Black Swan and created ‘Shake The World’, out on Friday 14th February, the title track of which is today's Video Of The Day. It's not only an aptly titled debut album of powerful Hard Rock that is not simply the sum of its parts, but it's also a powerful Rock ‘n Roll machine. Sparked by a conversation between Jeff Pilson and Frontiers, who were keen to hear a project that could not only showcase McAuley's vocal prowess but also have a mighty musical backbone behind him, the initial seed was planted and Pilson ran with it from there, recording the album in his LA studio. The final result sounds totally fresh and extremely heavy, albeit still intensely melodic. Consequently, ‘Shake the World’ is a killer slice of Melodic Hard Rock and Heavy Metal from these seasoned musicians and is essential listening!
