Frontiers Music Srl is pleased to announce the signing of Dario Mollo’s CROSSBONES.
Best known for his partnerships in the The Cage with Tony Martin (ex-Black Sabbath) and Voodoo Hill with Glenn Hughes (Black Country Communion, Deep Purple, California Breed), Italian guitarist Dario Mollo began his career in 1981 with the band Crossbones. With them, he released his first studio album in 1989, which was produced by Kit Woolven (Thin Lizzy, Magnum and UFO, among others) before getting involved in the production side of things himself.
“This new project, “CrossBones” was created with the intent to pay homage to the band from where it all started,” says Dario. For the occasion, he brought back the drummer of the original lineup, Ezio Secomandi together with his regular collaborator Dario Patti on bass and keyboards.
The choice for the singer is Carl Sentance (Nazareth, Don Airey Band, Persian Risk, Krokus), who came at the suggestion of Don Airey of Deep Purple, during a recent visit to Dario’s home. “This album includes the best of all the experience I gathered in my career in music and in artistic production,” concludes Dario. The quality of the material he recorded is witness to that.
The album is planned for release towards the end of 2016, with tour dates to follow.
