Night Ranger are busy in the studio working on a follow-up to 2007’s Hole In The Sun. The style was described to me by frontman Jack Blades as “more classic sounding”, which I am sure will please all fans of the band – new or old. The band line-up is the same one that has been touring together since 2008 – Jack Blades, Kelly Keagy, Brad Gillis, Joel Hoekstra and Christian Cullen. It is their first time in the studio together. The new album will be out in the middle of this year. An announcement about U.S. tour dates will be coming soon. The band plans to tour with Journey in Europe, with some dates including Foreigner and Kansas on the bill, followed by dates with Journey in Puerto Rico and Mexico.

 A picture of Brad Gillis was tweeted last Wednesday by Kelly – “laying down guitars on the new Night Ranger cd”
