The Swedish/American melodic hard rock supergroup W.E.T., which features vocalist Jeff Scott Soto (SONS OF APOLLO, TRANS-SIBERIAN ORCHESTRA, TALISMAN), guitarist/vocalist Erik Martensson (ECLIPSE, NORDIC UNION, AMMUNITION) and guitarist Robert Säll (WORK OF ART), will release its third studio album, “Earthrage”, on March 23 via Frontiers Records Srl. The first single from the album, “Watch The Fire”, can be streamed below.
W.E.T. — whose moniker is an acronym of the names of the acts that the group’s core members are best known for (WORK OF ART, ECLIPSE, TALISMAN) — released its acclaimed self-titled debut album in 2009. The band’s sophomore effort, “Rise Up”, surfaced in 2013, followed by the live CD/DVD “One Live – In Stockholm” in 2014.
Now, the group — which also features drummer Robban Bäck (MUSTASCH) and guitarist Magnus Henriksson (ECLIPSE) — returns with an album that label owner Serafino Perugino claims is “by far one of the best records in Frontiers‘s history.”
“Earthrage” track listing:
01. Watch The Fire
03. Kings On Thunder Road
04. Elegantly Wasted
07. Calling Out Your Name
08. Heart Is On The Line
09. I Don’t Wanna Play That Game
10. The Burning Pain Of Love
11. The Never-Ending Retraceable Dream
A music video for “Watch The Fire” will premiere in the coming weeks.
Soto told 100 Percent Rock Magazine last month that W.E.T. is “a project. It’s not a band in the sense of touring and we get together and do the things that bands do. That’s why we only have a handful of dates under our belts to date. We’ve never actually done a tour together, because it’s three completely different bands that are just so busy all the time. And Erik is as bad as I am — Erik Mårtensson. He’s in several bands and he’s always producing and writing and jumping from one to the next. We’ve never tried to actually follow up as a band.”
