GREAT WHITE’s “Hard to Say Goodbye” is now No. 8 on the classic rock radio Mediabase chart. The third single from Elation last charted at No. 10 and is expected to continue its climb, with news that the video has just been picked up by MTV.com.
GREAT WHITE released Elation (the band’s 12th studio record) from Frontiers Records in May 2012. Elation thrives on GREAT WHITE’s signature grit and blues-hued sound, only marked with a new synergy.
“The validation from our fans and the radio community has been phenomenal,” said GREAT WHITE founder Mark Kendall. “The energy on this record has been building higher and higher. This is the GREAT WHITE sound and I couldn’t be prouder to be a part of this amazing experience.”
