For some superstitious people Friday the 17th is an unlucky day, but not for THE STEVE FOGLIA SOCIETY who decided to tempt fate and release their new album (third in the studio after eight years) on this date. “Here & Now” comes out in digital version on all streaming platforms and in digipak version with special limited edition contents (pre-orders: email@example.com).
Apparently the number 17 is not only flanked by the release date; well 17 people have collaborated for this album (illustrators, photographers, musicians and technicians) and in the song “Do n’t Be Afraid” Steve returns to collaborate in the studio with his friend Roberto Bonazinga after 17 years. “Here & Now” is the first ZEN ROCK album in history, as the leader Steve wanted to blend the biting sounds of rock music with introspective themes influenced by oriental culture. A fusion that gave birth to nine songs that reflect on the meaning of life, on the present moment, on good and evil, on surrendering to the passing of time and much more.
The lyrics are writted by Steve, while the music was written by Daniele Arieta and Edoardo Tavanti as well as by the band leader.
The band is formed by Paolo Rossi on vocals, Daniele Arieta on guitar, Edoardo Tavanti on keyboards, Mario Pedone on bass and Steve Foglia on drums.
“Here & Now” to be released on June 17th was preceded a few days ago by the single “Angels & Demons” of which you can see the official video below.
The band has released two studio albums:
“Revenge” (in 2011 with the participation of Mike Vescera & Adam Bomb) and “Steve in Wonderland” (in 2014 with the participation of Blaze Bayley of Iron Maiden; record considered as best hard rock album of the year for the webzine IYEZINE) .
