Surgeland Records, a division of Serge Entertainment Group LLC, has announced an unconventional release date of August 28th for “End of Ride Revisited” by rock band Paris Keeling. The release date falls on a Friday rather than the standard Tuesday release date protocol the larger labels follow. The 16-song set features songs previously released on the 2006 Paris Keeling CD “End of Ride” along with bonus tracks and remixes, and contains the renowned vocal talents of Kelly Keeling (Baton Rouge, Michael Schenker Group, Blue Murder, Carmine Appice’s Guitar Zeus, King Kobra, Trans-Siberian Orchestra, O’2L) and the lauded guitar and production work of Marty Paris (The Marty Paris Band, Permanent Reverse) along with several celebrity musicians. The collaboration between Paris and Keeling began several years ago with the culmination of their songwriting styles blossoming into melodic rock/pop political and relationship-based songs.
Numerous celebrity musicians were recruited for this CD including Carmine Appice, George Lynch, Don Dokken, Al Pitrelli, Shane Gaalaas, Erik Norlander, Nate Howell, and The Aevia Trio featuring Diane Cox, Maud Kelley, and Juli Roach, with the core band consisting of Rick van Benschoten, Matt Goeke, Gintas Janusonis, Marty Paris, and Kelly Keeling.
“This album has come together very nicely,” explains Sandy Serge, Surgeland Records’ president. “We decided to be a bit unconventional and opted for an end of week release, It goes well with the album title. Both the music, which features some of the most heralded musicians on the music scene today, and the artwork, are phenomenal. Our graphics designer Gary Kelley at Creative Ninjas did a superb job at developing our concept. We hope Paris Keeling friends and fans will be very pleased.”
