Stan Bush releases new ‘Warrior’ EP and featured in new computer game Shadow Warrior 2

Flying Wild Hog, Devolver Digital, Laced Records and rock legend Stan Bush have announced the Warrior EP, a limited edition four-track vinyl record with music from and inspired by the upcoming first-person slasher Shadow Warrior 2. The limited edition gold vinyl and standard vinyl are available to pre-order now for $60/€54/£46 from Laced Records [lacedrecords.com] and includes a downloadable Steam code for Shadow Warrior 2 Deluxe delivered on the game’s October 13th launch day.

The Warrior EP contains Warrior, an original track for Shadow Warrior 2 by Stan Bush, alongside classic rock anthems The Touch, Never Surrender, and The Touch (Lo Wang Hijack), a remastered duet between Stan Bush and the protagonist of Shadow Warrior, Lo Wang. The limited edition set comes with a Steam code to download Shadow Warrior 2 Deluxe that includes the game, the digital soundtrack, the Razorback katana, and the Solid Gold DLC pack. The Warrior EP is printed on luscious 180-gram vinyl with a special screen-printed reverse and presented inside a premium card sleeve designed by noted Polish comic artist Michal Sledzinski.

Worldwide icon of melodic rock Stan Bush is best known for his song “The Touch,” made famous by Transformers: The Movie (1986) and appearing in the memorable opening cinematic of the 2013 Shadow Warrior reboot by Flying Wild Hog and Devolver Digital. As a vocalist, Stan has sung on albums by renowned artists such as Alice Cooper and Jefferson Starship, and has worked with iconic top producers (Georgio Moroder, Mick Jones, Peter Frampton, Paul Stanley, Ron Nevison, Richie Zito,) in addition to lending his voice to national and international advertising campaigns for Toyota, Coors, Mazda, Budweiser, Hertz and more.

Shadow Warrior 2 is the stunning evolution of Flying Wild Hog’s offbeat first-person shooter following the further misadventures of former corporate shogun Lo Wang. Now surviving as a reclusive mercenary on the edge of a corrupted world, the formidable warrior must again wield a devastating combination of guns, blades, magic and wit to strike down the demonic legions overwhelming the world he inadvertently corrupted.

Battle alongside allies online in four-player co-op or go it alone in this inventive sequel to the best-selling remake from 2013. Complete outrageous missions, collect powerful new armor, arcane relics of legend and choose from an array of masterfully designed weaponry – including a katana chainsaw that allows you to carve up your enemies in real-time. Finesse is the name of the game when it comes to dynamic dismemberment.

The Warrior EP is available for preorder now and shipping out in November with game keys being delivered on October 13. Shadow Warrior 2 is set to launch on PC October 13 and is available now for preorder on Steam, GOG, and Humble with up to 20% off for Shadow Warrior owners.

Rock Wolves (Voss/Rarebell/Hinz) release self titled debut album in October

Rock-Wolves
Rock Wolves, the cracking new band founded by Herman Rarebell, Michael Voss and Stephan ‘Gudze’ Hinz, three of the most renowned and accomplished German rock musicians to have emerged in the last 40 years, have signed to Steamhammer / SPV to release their hard driving, melody drenched, utterly uplifting hook – laden self-titled debut album on October 28th.

‘Rock Wolves’, which will be available as an embossed DigiPak CD (with poster), 180 gram dirty white vinyl LP (with CD in a paper sleeve) and download, contains eleven excellently executed, joyous, timeless classic rock compositions.

The idea to start Rock Wolves was conceived in Autumn 2015, during a tour by Michael Schenker’s current band, Temple Of Rock, which Rarebell and Voss have been members of for the last five years. As drummer and songwriter in Scorpions, Herman Rarebell was significantly involved in eight of their studio albums between 1977 and 1996, including all-time classics such as ‘Lovedrive’, ‘Blackout’ and ‘Love At First Sting’. Guitarist / vocalist Michael Voss first caused a stir in the 1980’s with groups such as Mad Max and Casanove, and his role in Temple Of Rock is not only that of a frontman, but also that of a songwriter and producer.

When Schenker announced that he wanted to cut down on concerts in the coming months, an opportunity opened for Rarebell and Voss to start a new band together. They soon found the perfect bassist in Stephan “Gudze” Hinz, a founder member of H-Blockx and hence a representative of the 1990s rock generation. So here we have three illustrious musicians from three decades, and three artistic careers with similar but by no means congruent influences.

The band’s almost boundless musical enthusiasm is reflected throughout this diverse, stunning debut – patently the work of supremely capable and inspired, virtuoso musicians gelling instinctively. Never is this more evident than on the exuberant single ‘Rock For The Nations’, a powerful track with a painful yet upbeat message; “Instead of delivering tanks and arms all over the world, Germany should concentrate on exporting good rock music,” explains Rarebell. Similarly, the shuffle-groove driven ‘Surrounded By Fools’ warns against unscrupulous politicians; “Let’s not be dazzled by their colourful election campaigns. Those politicians can easily end up bringing war to their countries” states Herman.

Less controversial tracks include thoroughbred rocker ‘I Need Your Love’, glorious, strikingly contemporary ballad ‘Nothing’s Gonna Bring Me Down’, and ‘What About Love’, a cover of Jim Vallance’s song which Heart topped the US Billboard charts with for 28 weeks in 1985. “Our new version has been given the blessing by Jim Vallance himself. His only comment was: ‘Your version is even better than my original, so go for it’,” remembers Rarebell.

The bar may be pretty high for an act with such a talented line-up, but Rock Wolves have, exceeding all expectations, way more than stepped up to the plate with their astonishingly accomplished debut.
