Neonfly hook up with acclaimed producer Dennis Ward on upcoming album

Neonfly-thumb

Neonfly are pleased to announce that they will be working with producer Dennis Ward (Unisonic, Pink Cream 69, Angra…) on their as yet untitled sophomore release, and follow up, to their critically lauded debut Outshine The Sun.

Dennis has been at the forefront of the metal scene since the late 80’s as the bass player and producer of the mighty Pink Cream 69, and more recently of Unisonic.

As well as his own bands, Dennis has produced albums for Angra, Krokus, Bob Catley, Sinner, Primal Fear, Vanden Plas, Axxis, Adagio, Robin Beck… the list goes on! His track record, needless to say, speaks for itself.

Production is set to start on April 1st at Hofa studios in Karlsdorf, Germany. Excitement is high within the band as to the new sonic possibilities presented by working with Dennis Ward. New musical horizons surely beckon and a major leap in the band’s profile is assured.

Guitarist and main songwriter Frederick Thunder comments: “The material we have for this album is the best we’ve ever written, I have no doubt about that. The arrangements are bigger & more bombastic, the riffs are killer, the songs are even more hook laden, and following extensive touring with heroes like Magnum and Freedom Call we feel our playing has reached fever pitch… we’re just more together and inspired as a band. With this record we want the fans to get some sense of the energy and ferocity we present in our live shows, whilst at the same time melting their brains with what we aim to be a massively ramped up orchestral scale to our sound”

“That’s why it was really important to choose the right producer for this album, to make sure that the scale of the production could match our ambitions, and Dennis is the right man for the job. We just can’t wait to get started, and I know once we do, we won’t want to stop!”

As previously announced however, the band will be taking a break in the production to fly back to the UK for their tour in support of Sonata Arctica.

Dates are as follows:

14th April – Nottingham Rescue Rooms

15th April – Manchester Club Academy

16th April – Birmingham HMV Institute | Library

17th April – London | The Garage 

Chapter two of the Neonfly story is about to commence, Neonfly look forward to presenting the fruits of their labours to the metal masses later in 2013.
