Formed 2009 in London is the hard rock-influenced A New Tomorrow, who released their debut album Universe at the beginning of December. Created by vocalist/guitarist Alessio Garavello and bassist Andrea Lonardi, they were later joined by Tim Hall on drums and Michael Kew on guitars.
These melodic hard rockers have been honing their skills since with influences of heavy hitters Alter Bridge, Foo Fighters and Green Day. This tells me exactly what to expect from this four-piece of melodic riffs, lively lyrics and funky drum beats.
Opener “I Wanna Live” gives a nod to Alter Bridge with high guitar spots and Garavello’s encouraging vocals have a Myles Kennedy feel. Their melodic rock is an easy listen, especially with “Golden Sands” and with “Ignition” the band bring high tempo beats and have the capacity to be a band your pal will happily come with you to see live.
Tim Hall’s drumming throughout is ear-catching and mixes well with others and in “Mother Earth Is Calling” Tim builds the tension at the beginning before the riffs arrive with theatre vocals. Their catchy rock style has a place in every collection and with their years of travelling and creating they engage with this record to their fans. “Stepping Into the Wild” is an acoustic ballad as with “Home”, the latter kicks into another gear around the two to three-minute mark as Alessio Garavello’s vocals get louder and heavier and we are not in acoustic territory anymore, Dorothy!
Eleven tunes of melodic, uplifting classic rock material, a sound reminiscent of Myles Kennedy and his crew, heavy riffs, outstanding flow on the skins with strong vocals from the creator of this band. It will be interesting to see these guys live.
