THE DEFIANTS - promo - 3-1-16 is excited to announce the release of THE DEFIANTS self-titled debut album on April 15, 2016.

THE DEFIANTS is a new band put together by , Bruno Ravel and Rob Marcello. Three fabulous musicians, all with ties to the great hard rock band .

Today the band unveils the first audio offering from their debut.  The song “Love and Bullets” can be streamed below.

The album is available for pre-order in digital formats HERE.  Digital pre-orders come with an instant grat track download of “Love and Bullets”.

Best known for being ’s front man for a 12 year stint from 1992-2004, which included 4 studio albums, is now coming back to work with his former bandmates Bruno Ravel and Rob Marcello, who are the other two pillars of THE DEFIANTS.

The guys got back together under suggestion of Frontiers’ President, Serafino Perugino, who really wanted to offer the fans a chance to hear some new music from these guys. The resulting album is an extremely exciting affair which is going to please not only D2 fans, but also all the ones who are into the classic sound from the glory days of rock in the ’80s and ’90s.

says “From the moment Bruno and I started writing together,we knew we had something special. It’s been my experience that when the writing process is effortless, you’ve trapped lightning in a bottle…within the first 2 1/2 months, we had close to 40 ideas up on the board. I think it surprised both of us how intuitive we were of each others ideas. I’m very proud of this record, and it feels good to let loose on an album of complete stadium rockers. Rob Marcello, I consider to be one of the biggest talents in the world of modern guitar players. I love how much he shines on this record, and from track to track, I couldn’t wait to hear what he had to say musically. On a personal note, it feels good to hit another musical and writing milestone with this album. It was very hard to choose the material for this record,and its exciting to know that there are still bullets left in the chamber that nobody has heard yet…”

Bruno Ravel adds “I’m so stoked for you all to hear this record! It was so much fun to create, and that feeling will be very evident once you give it a listen. Paul and Rob poured every bit of themselves into these tracks, and their performances were just ridiculous! Add that to the aggressive killer drum pounding that only my good buddy, Van Romaine could deliver, and you have what equals a bonafide rock ‘n’ roll roller coaster! Strap yourselves in folks! And get ready for the ride!”

THE DEFIANTS is a glorious return to the “in your face” melodic hard rock that won millions of fans back in the ’80s and ’90s and is currently enjoying a well deserved revival in the 21st century.

THE DEFIANTS are set to appear live at the Frontiers Rock Festival in Trezzo (Milano), Italy on April 24, 2016, where the band will perform classic tracks from Paul Laine’s solo career, some hits (of course) and songs off The Defiants debut!
