For Immediate Release:
Former Helloween Vocalist Michael Kiske Returns to Rock with SUPARED!
Debut album in stores February 25th!
Michael Kiske is no stranger to the rock community. Having fronted Germany's Helloween for their most memorable releases (Keeper Of The Seven Keys, Parts I & II), his voice launched the band to legendary status, while setting the standard by which all power/melodic vocalists are judged. Since his departure from the influential outfit, Kiske has broadened his scope as a performer & as a solo artist with 2 releases (Instant Clarit in 1996 and R.T.S. in 1999), which achieved critical acclaim in Europe & Japan. The 21st Century has arrived, and Michael was drawn to return to rock, not as a solo artist, but with a full band. On February 25th, 2003, Michael's new band SUPARED is primed to release its self-titled debut to the world through Noise/Sanctuary Records!
"You can play pop music as a solo artist, but Rock is best written in a band environment. Rock 'n Roll comes alive and gets to be real by the amalgamation of different characters of band members," admits Kiske. While not reliving his past or rehashing old material, Kiske advances forward with a fresh perspective on decent rock 'n roll music. “It's important for me, when I buy a record, that is always has some kind of surprise in store. [SupaRed] is a modern record where every song holds something different from the one before," he adds.
Surprises abound, SupaRed has its share of eclectic atmospheres, be it the driving opener "Reconsider," the brilliant, melodic rock ballad "Ride On," the lively, quick "Hey," or the catchy pop-rocker "A Bit Of Her". Kiske continues, "Music has to move deeply, arouse enthusiasm, shock, excite and emotionally seize the listener."
Thus 2003 will kick off with a rock highlight many have anticipated, and SupaRed is guaranteed to fulfill many a music fan's demands.
