After the release of their 2014 self-titled debut album, it is now time for Adrenaline Rush to release their follow-up. The new album “Soul Survivor” and single “Love Like Poison” is out now.
This time, the blond bombshell vocalist Tåve Wanning mainly collaborated with Fredrik Folkare (of Firespawn and Unleashed), who brought fresh influences to the table that fit well with Tåve’s ideas. The music has evolved and grown beyond what appeared on the debut. It is still melodic and definitely has an 80’s flavor, but also is a bit more complex, darker, and heavier than the previous album. The production is edgier and the guitar work once again pristine. Erik Mårtensson (of Eclipse) was once again involved as a sounding board, co-writing a song and mastering the finished tracks.
“I didn’t want to make another album just like the first one,” Tåve says. “I’ve grown since we recorded the first, I am in a different place. And I feel the album reflects that. The new tracks really complement the old instead of replacing them; they add a new dimension and gives us a broader spectrum of songs to choose from when playing live.”
The band has also seen some changes. Former members Ludvig and Soufian left the band to focus on other endeavors and have been replaced by Sam Soderlindh (lead guitar) and Joel Fox (bass). Sam is a new face to most, a young guitarist with fast fingers and a lot of potential. Joel, on the other hand, has been around for a while in bands like Dynazty and Siniestro.
The band is set to perform a few club gigs in Sweden, before appearing at the 4th Frontiers Rock Festival in Milano, Italy, on April 30.
“Hope to see you at a gig. Until then… enjoy the Rush!”
