(Freeman) Resurrection Kings, the new group featuring Craig Goldy (Dio), Vinny Appice (Black Sabbath, Dio), Sean McNabb (Lynch Mob, Dokken) and Chas West (Lynch Mob) have released a new video.
The new video clip is for the song "Who Did You Run To," which is one of the tracks that appears on the band's forthcoming self-titled debut album. The album is set to be released by Frontiers on January 29th but fans can get an early taste via the new video here.
We were sent the following background information on how the group came together: Everything started with a set of demos former Dio and Giuffria guitar player, Craig Goldy recorded with singer Chas West, a guy with an unbelievable set of pipes, who has worked with such bands as the Jason Bonham Band, Foreigner, Lynch Mob, Tribe Of Gypsies, and 3 Legged Dogg.
"It all started five years ago when Craig Goldy asked me to write together," says Chas. Out of those demo sessions, the song "Livin' Out Loud" strongly impressed Frontiers' President, Serafino Perugino. He then asked Craig to build up a project/band around that musical concept. He also suggested Sean McNabb for bass (Lynch Mob, Dokken , Quiet Riot ), while Craig brought in later former DIO band mate Vinny Appice on drums. "Serafino wanted to make an album with famous musicians from the 80's and I was flabbergasted when he asked me to participate" says Craig Goldy. "We've all known each other for a long time and it was a pleasure to work with everyone - my God with Chas, Sean and Vinny that's a killer line-up!"
Frontiers in-house writer and producer Alessandro Del Vecchio (Revolution Saints, Hardline, Rated X) offered his services to the band and wrote (or co-wrote with Goldy) a few tracks to round out the material that was available. "He is a great songwriter, producer, musician and singer," says Goldy. "Some of the demo versions already had vocals and everything else, so all we did was learn the songs and then did them our way. When Sean and Vinny got a hold of these songs they really came alive and gave me automatic inspiration to write and perform on top of what was already written".
