TWO NEW CATALOGUE TITLES ALSO AVAILABLE IN CELEBRATION OF 20TH ANNIVERSARY OF MULTI-PLATINUM DEBUT “AFTER THE RAIN”
(New York, NY) – Lovers of melodic songwriting and sweet sibling harmonies rejoice! On February 15th, the Frontiers Records label will release not only a brand new Nelson album, LIGHTNING STRIKES TWICE, but also two rare classic catalogue offerings: BEFORE THE RAIN and PERFECT STORM – AFTER THE RAIN WORLD TOUR 1991 in North America. New album LIGHTNING STRIKES TWICE finds twin rockers and frontmen Matthew and Gunnar Nelson seamlessly picking up where they left off with their multi-platinum debut AFTER THE RAIN. AFTER THE RAIN sold nearly 7 million albums worldwide and featured the #1 smash hit single, “(Can’t Live Without Your) Love And Affection.”
Gunnar Nelson commented, “This is by far the best Nelson record ever made. Ever. Was it worth its 20 years in the making? Check it out and decide for yourself – but I know for me on every level it was.” Matthew Nelson added, “We set out to make a brand new classic rock record – and the critics in Europe have assured us that our mission’s accomplished.”
Recently released in Europe and the United Kingdom, LIGHTNING STRIKES TWICE has been receiving critical acclaim from press and fans alike. Metal Hammer Germany avowed, “The two blonds have done the almost impossible: a comeback sequel as strong as Meatloaf’s BAT OUT OF HELL II”, while Classic Rock referred to the album as “absolutely and unexpectedly awesome!” The first single from the album is “You’re All I Need Tonight.” Please see below for a link to the brand new video for the single. The complete LIGHTNING STRIKES TWICE track listing can also be found below. The new Nelson CD album sequel LIGHTNING STRIKES TWICE will be available for purchase in North America on February 15th, 2011 on iTunes, Amazon.com and through retail stores nationwide from Frontiers Records-EMI-Stone Canyon Records.
BEFORE THE RAIN features the collection of songs that secured Nelson their recording deal with Geffen Records, the original demonstration recordings that caught the attention of A&R legend John Kalodner in late 1989. The album documents the story of the Nelson twins and their five year musical journey leading up to their multi-platinum debut. PERFECT STORM – AFTER THE RAIN WORLD TOUR 1991 is a live concert album; these audio recordings are all that remain to document the height of Nelsonmania for posterity.
The name Nelson has always been synonymous with entertainment in America. Matthew and Gunnar follow grandfather Ozzie Nelson’s vision of embracing connecting with people and audiences through all forms of media. In addition to their musical career, the twins have been featured as hosts on such national television outlets as VH1 and E!.
