Frontman extraordinaire/songwriter Gary Cherone, late of Extreme and Van Halen, is proud to announce the release of the sophomore album from Hurtsmile, his collaboration with brother/guitarist Mark Cherone.
It's a brotherly affair!
RETROGRENADE will be available in North America on October 7 via Cherone's own Slipkid Records.
Following up on the band's acclaimed self-titled debut in 2011, the fan-funded RETROGRENADE pays homage to almost every genre Cherone has excelled at in the past and is inspired by the classic rock records they grew up on.
"The strength of this record is that all the members of the band contributed to the songwriting process which resulted in a wonderfully creative diversity," said Cherone. "This second effort has been a natural progression and we've yet to repeat ourselves musically."
We're so down. Cherone can sing his arse off. We actually liked ONE of his songs when he fronted Van Halen for a nanosecond in the late '90s. Guess which one.
