Frontiers Records will release "Ceremonial", the new album from German/British melodic hard rockers PINK CREAM 69, on January 25 in Europe and January 22 in North America. Marquee Avalon will release the record for the Asian market on the 23rd of January. The cover artwork was created by Kai Brockschmidt (PRETTY MAIDS, ROYAL HUNT).
"Ceremonial" is PINK CREAM 69's first album with their new drummer, Chris Schmidt. Recorded partially at Hofa Studios and mixed at Dennis Ward's private studio - The TrakShak.
"The songs had to be 100% ready and we took all the necessary time," states bass player and producer Dennis Ward. "This gaves us the possibility to experiment and to achieve the best possible result."
"We deliberately called the album "Ceremonial" because we feel it's kind of a celebration of music styles we all grew up with, regardless of what PINK CREAM 69 has done in the past", continues Ward.
"There were various projects that I was involved in over the last couple of years", adds singer David Readman. "But the work on 'Ceremonial' felt like coming home. A real relief."
