Frontiers Records is pleased to announce the release of the new VERTIGO album simply entitled “2” on June 9th 2006.
VERTIGO is the studio project featuring former TOTO singer Joseph Williams in a melodic rock mood, together with famed bass player and producer Fabrizio Grossi (Glenn Hughes, House of Lords, Starbreaker, Danny Vaughn, Starship etc.).
Williams’ return on the market in 2003 with VERTIGO’s first chapter - featuring a sound style based on classic melodic rock - was greeted with much commercial and critical acclaim. It was therefore a natural step for everyone involved to make soon plans for a follow up release.
In the meanwhile Joseph found the opportunity to work again with TOTO and his lead vocals shine in the latest single “Bottom of Your Soul” off of the very successful “Falling In Between” album released worldwide on Frontiers Records.
On VERTIGO “2”, Joseph and Fabrizio are joined by world class players such as Alex Masi on guitars, Virgil Donati (SOUL SIRKUS, RING OF FIRE) on drums and Jason Scheff (CHICAGO, background vocals on “Hold Me”).
Joseph this time did also contribute to the songwriting co-writing with producer and long-time associate Joey Carbone the mega-AOR uptempo “I Want To Live Forever”. Some other songs were eventually selected through some of Joseph most contemporary influences and preferences.
The resulting record, is another threat for the melodic rock fans and a real must for all lovers of the sound of Toto and of course for all those who have enjoyed VERTIGO’s chapter one.
Final tracklisting is as follows:
In The Blink Of An Eye; All For You; Hold Me; Part Of Me; Holy; I Wanna Live Forever; Save It All Alone; Picking Up The Pieces; Together (Good-Bye So Long); There’s A Reason.
Release date is scheduled on Frontiers Records in Europe on June the 9th with release in the USA on Locomotive and Japan on King Recor
