OSUKARU To Issue Two New Releases By The End Of May; Details Revealed
Swedish melodic rock outfit OSUKARU
will return with not only one, but
two releases by the end of May this year; the new album Triumphant, and a
special EP called Covered Up.
Triumphant is the band's second full album, but the fourth release
in total, and it features the brand new lineup including Oz Osukaru
(guitars, keyboards), Fredrik Werner
(lead vocals, guitars), Cecilia
(lead vocals), Jens Björk
(saxophone), Adrian Lopez
keyboards), Axel Ryberg
(drums) and co-founder Ryan Coyle
"To me, this version of Osukaru is more like a new band, a reboot so
to speak, and in a way Triumphant is like a debut album", Oz says.
"However, that doesn't mean that I'm not proud of our previous releases,
because I really am. But to make Osukaru grow I felt that it was time
for a change."
Triumphant will include a total of 14 tracks with titles like 'Walk
In Balance', 'Triumphant', 'Prisoner Of The Night', 'Believe'
Play With Fire'
and a song called 'Mafia Rules',
featuring Erik Heikne
(MISS BEHAVIOUR) on lead guitars.
As if this wasn't enough, a special EP, titled Covered Up, will be
released the very same day, featuring five cover songs getting the full
Osukaru treatment. This EP is strictly limited to 500 numbered copies
and you can only get it as a bonus if you order Triumphant directly from
the band or their label City of Lights Records.
Covered Up will be included with the album as a free gift to their
fans and the songs featured on the disc are 'Who Cries Now'
CHILD), 'Tough Times Don't Last'
(BAD ENGLISH), 'Midnight Blue'
GRAMM), 'Waiting For Love'
(ALIAS) and a rock version of 'Hair'
GAGA) featuring the pop singer Jessica Frost on lead vocals. Jessica
Frost is also the cover model for both Triumphant and Covered Up, and
the artwork is, as always, created by Oz Osukaru himself.
