Bite The Bullet release in Europe

Frontiers Records is particularly pleased to announce the come back release from STREET LEGAL “Bite The Bullet” due for release in Europe on March 13th 2009.

STREET LEGAL name came to prominence for the first time during the year 2000 when the band’s debut “Thunderdome” was released with strong critical acclaim in Europe on Frontiers Records. The band did already build a a solid reputation with some great live shows in their home country Norway, particularly their first show in May 99 as support of W.A.S.P. gathered such comments as: - «Iron Maiden threatened Kiss in 1980, Clawfinger showed muscle before Anthrax in 1990, Skunk Anansie blew away Therapy? in 1995. In 1999 Street Legal outplayed W.A.S.P.» - Stig Myhre (Nettpuls). “Street Legal should be the next Norwegian act to make a remarkable impact on an international level” - Jan Dahle (Scream). After the release of “Thuderdome”, STREET LEGAL performed some killer shows at the Sweden Rock Festival and at the Gods Festivalin the UK.

Soundwise, these Norwegian rockers have been often compared to THIN LIZZY, WHITESNAKE and BLUE MURDER. “Classic rock with a strong blues foundation, still very harmony driven”, comments bass player and singer Bjorn Boge, when asked to describe the sound of the band to the uninitiated. “A lot of influences from the past: Westcoast Music, Metal, Hard Rock from the late 70´s. Always with focus on the song. Lyrics are also important. Chuck Frazier, my buddy in the lyric department is the major force behind this”.

After a long hiatus and some line-up changes, STREET LEGAL are now back to Rock with a superb new album that takes from where the previous has left. Bjorn explains: “This record marks the introduction of my brother Oystein as the drummer in the band and also brings a more straightforward rock’n roll approach than “Thunderdome”. For the time being we decided to stick with just the two of us. We know a lot of great guitar players, so the live lineup will be as strong as ever”. With Bjorn and his brother Oystein on drums, featured on the album there are Tore Ostby (ex ARK, Conception) and Rolf Bjorseth playing guitars.

Bjorn concludes: “It’s been a long and bumpy ride the last nine years for Street Legal. Since Thunderdome we went through heaven and hell: tourbus accident, personal disasters, depressions, divorces… The only problem we didn’t have was drugs! “Bite the bullet” was so hard to make, that we sometimes felt it was better to quit and call it a day. But we didn’t. And today I am very proud of what came out of this process. Street Legal will kick serious ass again. Looking forward to see you on the road!”

Final tracklisting of “Bite the Bullet” includes:
Loading Up; Somebody Up There Likes Me; Unconditional Love; Warriors of Gengis Khan; Shadow In My Heart; Bite The Bullet; Starship Trooper; Trapped; The Battle of Kringen; Maniac; Silent Tear.

Re. Something from the past…

A little sidestep here. Bjorn playing the blues with the grand old men of Texas Twisters. This is a live recording of the classic Roadhouse blues. The show is from a small club,- right outside Oslo-Norway.

Something from the past!

Bonus track is finished

Bonus track for the Japanese editon is finished. A version of the classic song “I don´t wanna wait anymore” by The Tubes. The album “The completion backward principle” is a real all time classic. Check it out!

Bonus track coming up!

FRONTIERS RECORDS NEWS - THE RETURN OF STREET LEGAL

Frontiers Records is pleased to announce the return of Street Legal. The band is now formed by main man Bjorn Boge on bass and vocals (ex DaVinci) and his brother Oystein on drums has completed the production of the long awaited second album entitled Bite The Bullet with Tore Ostby (ex ARK, Conception) and Rolf Bjorseth on guitars.

Street Legal released their successful debut album Thunderdome in the year 2000, gathering excellent responses from fans and critics. Especially renowned for their outstanding live shows, Street Legal also appeared at the Sweden Rock Festival in June and at The Gods Festival in the UK in November 2000. Their music has been often compared to Thin Lizzy, Whitesnake and Blue Murder: a sound deeply rooted in the late 70’s, but clearly present in our day and age.

“Bite the bullet” is a true piece of Classic Rock” says singer and bassist Bjorn Boge“Groovy. Bluesy. Very melodic. And: Lots of cool guitar stuff ! More “organic” than “Thunderdome” soundwise, but with lots of energy and passion. It’s great to be back on track with Frontiers. The home of melodic rock. Looking forward to spread the word around. The boys are back in town!”

Bite The Bullet was produced by Bjorn Boge and mixed and mastered by Tommy Newton (Helloween, Victory, UFO). Frontiers looks set to release the album in early 2009 with more details to be released at later stage.
