AOR CULT HERO JEFF CANNATA RESURRECTS THE ARC ANGEL MONIKER:te]Frontiers Records is pleased to announce the release of the return album from Arc Angel entitled Harlequins of Light on August 24 in Europe and August 27 in North America.
Arc Angel is a musical creature masterminded by none other than AOR cult hero Jeff Cannata,
who debuted under this moniker in 1982 on the Portrait/CBS label.
Produced with the assistance of legendary industry figures such as Tony
Bongiovi, Lennie Petze and Lance Quinn (Bon Jovi),�Arc Angel as an album
is - to date - still highly regarded among the melodic rock community.
Cannata later on started a solo career which spawned the critically
acclaimed albums "Images of Forever" (1988), "Watching the World" (1993) and the more recent "Tamorok" and "Mysterium Magnum", which display a more Progressive Rock edge.
During 2012 Cannata made contact with Frontiers, and decision was made to resurrect the Arc Angel moniker for a new release entitled �Harlequins of Light�.
The new record metaphorically builds a bridge between Cannata's
different musical eras: from the commercial and pompous Melodic Rock of
the early eighties, to the more Prog and Hi-tech musical material of his
most recent solo albums.
Jeff Cannata said: �It's interesting how your life comes full
circle. In 1970 my first real band, Jasper Wrath, also featured James
Christian on vocals. We had it all but then we split up. You live, you
learn. In 2011, after I started studying cinematography and script
writing, I got a call from James to shoot the new House of Lords video
�Someday When". A few months after, I get the chance to send Serafino my
new demos. We discuss a follow up Arc Angel record. I get the green
light. Traditionally, 5 years pass between Cannata CD's, this new
project was written and recorded in 6 months. No time to really think
about it and for some reason the songs just came. You can go on and on,
you never get it ALL. But that's why you keep coming back: to see if
maybe you can��
To add fuel to the fire, Jeff has re-recorded a classic song from his now rare album �Images of Forever� � �Fortune Teller� for a splendid new version for new and old fans' delight.
Believe it or not, Arc Angel are back and once again delivers a
mesmerizing package of music � and in doing so, keeps up his time
honoured tradition of releasing quality product to the melodic rock
"Harlequins of Light"�includes�the�following�songs: Harlequins
Of Light; As Far As The Eye Can See; War (Battle Wounds Of Life); Voice
Of� Illuminati; Through The Night; Amnesia (The Rest Of Your Life);
Fortune Teller 2; California Daze; Tonight� Forever; Get To You;
Diamonds And Gold; Legend Of The Mary Celeste.
