Tåve and Erik Mårtensson (of Eclipse and W.E.T.) together in 2012 joined forces and began the process of recording which would become the first album for Adrenaline Rush.

The guys were hand-picked from bands around Stockholm, all having different backgrounds but each an important piece of the puzzle.

Adrenaline Rush's self titled album will be released Aug.22 in Europe and Aug.26 in North America, this is their debut album. It was recorded and written with the direction of producer Erik Mårtensson (Eclipse, W.E.T.) and there are 11 full of energy, live - oriented tracks with strong melody, and some pretty powerful guitar riffs, and some very interesting arrangements.  

What will catch your eye first about this band is the beautiful and talented  Tåve Wanning (formerly part of platinum selling Teen - Pop duo Peaches), the band promises to crank up the international rock scene with a lethal dose of heavy guitar, infectious hooks, and just pure Rock n' Roll. If you take a step back to say 1980ish, this should appeal to you, especially if you are a fan of that era, and like Danger Danger, Vixen, Motley Crue, Dokken, Warrant, Treat and Crazy Lixx.

I loved that era myself and they nailed it, great vocals captured the sound, and what you are going to get is a full blown party album, full of head banging, foot stomping, hand drumming, crank it loud, feel good music. Word of warning, play it in your car/truck or whatever, easy on the gas, otherwise you might find yourself with a speeding ticket.

The band has it all put together in a great package. Hopefully they will come to a town near you so that you can witness their talent.
