Today, Edged Circle Productions announces June 26th as the international release date for Queenmaker's debut single, Under the Kiss, on 7" vinyl format. The record will be available on pink vinyl and cokebottle green vinyl, as well as on all digital platforms.
Hailing from Sweden, Queenmaker are a brand-new band creating an electrifying present by mining hard rock's past. The band features Jennie Väänänen on vocals and Rob Nasty handling all instruments, and together do they authentically herald the heavenward thrust and nighttime silk of classic Vixen, Lita Ford, Def Leppard, and Robin Beck - essentially, that gauzy 'n' grandiose Technicolor metal-lite of the mid/late '80s. And make no mistake that this is some ironic pastiche or campy put-on: Queenmaker are 100% about it, and they've got some new anthems for you!
A two-song release, with the harder-rocking "Under the Kiss" on the A-side and the shimmering "Hold on to Love" on the flip, Queenmaker's Under the Kiss is a swift 'n' decisive debut ready for repeat plays. And so far, the public has spoken about its support of the duo: already, "Hold on to Love" has racked up 16K monthly plays on Spotify...and counting! So get on the Queenmaker bandwagon NOW and get Under the Kiss!
In the meantime, hear "Hold on to Love" HERE at Edged Circle's Bandcamp, where both editions of the vinyl can be preordered. Cover and tracklisting are as follows:
