STYX & Foreigner “The Soundtrack Of Summer” Tour Companion Album Out May 6 Exc. At Walmart

Includes New Interpretation Of “Hotel California,” Along With Tourmate DON FELDER






April 23, 2014 – Responsible for some of Rock’s most indelible summer anthems, legendary groups FOREIGNER and STYX will release THE SOUNDTRACK OF SUMMER on May 6 to coincide with their highly anticipated tour of the same name, which also features very special guest DON FELDER, former guitarist of The Eagles.  The album, which features 16 classics by both bands, will be available exclusively at Walmart. Pre-orders are available on Walmart’s website.

THE SOUNDTRACK OF SUMMER package includes FOREIGNER hits “Cold As Ice,” “Juke Box Hero” and “I Want To  Know What Love Is,” and STYX hits “The Grand Illusion,” “Blue Collar Man” and “Renegade” (see below for a complete track listing).  The collection finishes with the spectacular highlight, a brand new interpretation of one of Classic Rock’s most successful songs ever, “Hotel California.”  Original songwriter DON FELDER teamed up with STYX and FOREIGNER for this very special collaboration, as well as a stunning new version of FOREIGNER’s massive hit, “I Want To Know What Love Is,” which will only be available as a limited edition vinyl disc and on iTunes.

Fans can check out an exclusive stream of “Hotel California” on USA Today’s website, which went live earlier today.

STYX is one of the most beloved rock bands on the planet, with more than 30 million records sold in North America alone.  Spawned from a Chicago basement in the early ‘70s, STYX would eventually transform into the virtual arena rock prototype by the late ’70s and early ’80s, due to a fondness for big rockers and soaring power ballads.  Over the course of their 38-year career they’ve released 15 studio albums, six best-of compilations and four live albums, garnering eight Top Ten singles.  Tommy Shaw, James “JY” Young, Chuck Panozzo, Lawrence Gowan, Ricky Phillips and Todd Sucherman have been together longer than any other lineup in the band’s 40-year existence.

With ten multi-platinum albums and sixteen Top 30 hits, FOREIGNER is universally hailed as one of the most popular rock acts in the world with a formidable musical arsenal that continues to propel sold-out tours and album sales, now exceeding 75 million. Responsible for some of rock and roll’s most enduring anthems, FOREIGNER continues to rock the charts more than thirty years into the game, Foreigner is led by founding member Mick Jones (guitar), and Kelly Hansen (lead vocals), Jeff Pilson (bass, vocals), Michael Bluestein (keyboards), Tom Gimbel (rhythm guitar, sax, vocals), Bruce Watson (guitar) and Chris Frazier (drums).

DON FELDER–former guitarist of the Eagles, New York Times best-selling author and four-time Grammy® Award winner—released his second solo album (and first since 1983), “Road To Forever” in October 9, 2012 and has been on tour throughout the U.S. ever since.  The album has recently been re-released with four additional songs, “Road To Forever: Extended Edition,” on March 4 via INGrooves Music Group.  The album’s latest single, “You Don’t Have Me,” is currently bulleted at #3 on the Mediabase Classic Rock chart.  “Road To Forever” originally debuted on Billboard’s “Heatseekers” chart at #27.  “Girls In Black,” the album’s first single, reached the Top 30 on the Mediabase Rock chart while the second single, “Wash Away,” co-written by FELDER and STYX’s Tommy Shaw and featuring Shaw’s signature vocal sound, quickly jumped to #4 on the Mediabase Classic Rock chart.
