REVOLUTION SAINTS, FEATURING DOUG ALDRICH, JACK BLADES AND DEEN CASTRONOVO, RELEASE VIDEO FOR “TURN BACK TIME” FROM THEIR SELF-TITLED DEBUT DUE FEBRUARY 24TH
Three icons of rock music are combining their talents for the creation of one of the most anticipated new projects of 2015. Revolution Saints is the newest power trio to arrive on the scene and features guitar skills by Doug Aldrich (Whitesnake), bass and co-lead vocals by Jack Blades (Night Ranger, Damn Yankees, Shaw/Blades) and drums and lead vocals by Deen Castronovo (Journey, Bad English). The band has just released the video for the song Turn Back Time from their self-titled debut that is being released in North America on February 24th via Frontiers Music SRL. Watch it below.
From the opening notes of Back On My Trail to the piano outro on the album-closer In The Name Of The Father (Fernando’s Song), it is clear Revolution Saints is a musical force to be reckoned with. Songs Locked Out Of Paradise, Dream On and Here Forever showcase the diversity that permeates throughout the entire album. Deen’s band mates from Journey also make an appearance on the album with guitarist Neal Schon showing up on Way To The Sun and vocalist Arnel Pineda singing on You’re Not Alone. The album’s 80’s vibe is reminiscent of some of the biggest hard rock tracks of the day, but with a modern feel, backed by top-level musicianship. The album is available for pre-order at Amazon in standard CD and deluxe edition with bonus DVD. Fans who order the album digitally via iTunes will receive an automatic download of Turn Back Time.
“It’s a fun record. It’s not safe. It is a musician’s record,” states Castronovo.
Revolution Saints have released an EPK discussing the new project that can be seen below.

I said this is on another site, and I will say it here. The vocals sound hollow and the guitars blasts directly over them, rendering the vocals useless. The music sounds great, but this needs to be an instrumental record if they are going to have the vocals drowned out by the guitar. I will not be buying this record unless this is fixed. It sounds the same way on every song except the ballad. I noticed the same thing on Journey’s last two LPs. Maybe that is the way Deen prefers is vocal performances. Aside from the Rubicon LPs, I have everything Jack Blades has ever recorded that I know is available. Night Ranger is my favorite band, bar none, and Jack Blades is a master song writer, so it pains to have to say no to purchasing this music.
Sounds contrived and although I like each as an individual, this doesn’t work for me..pretty much like every other one of these so-called supergroups. Years from now there will be a vh1 special on this time in hard rock/metal and they will discuss how many supergroups were formed from 2012-2014 and how it was some of these guys last chance at trying to make money while living on their past… And how many included George Lynch??? Those in this genre didn’t learn from the past…copying what everyone is doing may work for the first few that do it, but then it becomes a movement, aka HAIR METAL…there are many bands that were born during that “movement” and only a few survived and many great musicians have either been overlooked or never looked at because they were doing the same things and it got old…or their image overshadowed the music. Carmine Appice is another one who like Lynch will put his name on almost anything. Supergroups are usually not that super and although this isn’t terrible,it’s anything earth shattering like each has done with other groups.
