David Hasselhoff Wants To "Open Your Eyes" To His New Music & Angel Have "Risen" With A New Album

Television and movie star David Hasselhoff returns with his first full-length music album in over two decades. The new release titled "Open Your Eyes" features thirteen cover songs sung by "The Hoff" with some very special guests like Todd Rundgren, Charlie Daniels and Steve Stevens. The set begins with his resurrection of The Lords of the New Church song "Open Your Eyes," which feels as relevant today as when it was originally recorded and released back in 1982. Hasselhoff's voice still sounds strong and smooth, as displayed in David Bowie's "Heroes" (which is sung half in English and half in German) and on the classic country hit "Rhinestone Cowboy," which also features a guest appearance from Charlie Daniels. Tracii Guns lends a hand on guitar to electrify the Whitesnake hit "Here I Go Again." It's great hearing "The Hoff" have fun singing The Archie's' classic "Sugar, Sugar," while his version of "Sweet Caroline" feel like a goth/pop single with the help of Ministry. David Hasselhoff then finishes off the album with the perfect "good-bye" song, "That's Life." Hasselhoff will be performing all over Germany during the month of October.

Legendary rockers Angel have also returned with their first album of new material in over a decade. The band started out in the mid-seventies, after being discovered by Kiss' Gene Simmons and developed a cult following before parting ways in 1981. Then in 1998, the band reformed to release the album "In The Beginning," which gave the band a renewed interest on the touring circuit. Their new album titled "Risen," is the first to feature founding members Frank DiMino and Punky Meadows, since their first run in the seventies.

The October 4th release of the album signals the beginning of a new chapter in the story of Angel, as they deliver fifteen brand new tracks that can once again stand the test of time. The new album begins with the powerful, guitar-driven rocker "Under The Gun," as the band sound just a fresh now as they did in 1975. Angel show no signs of fatigue, as displayed in the song "Slow Down," with its edgy, swift moving rhythm and stellar arena-built vocals. The seven-minute "1975" displays the bands softer, more progressive sound, before turning the volume up another notch for the hard rockers "We Were The Wild" and "Our Revolution." Angel close out their new album with the nostalgic pop/rock flow of "Tell Me Why" and a new, modern remake of their classic radio gem "Tower." Angel currently have a couple of album release shows lined-up at the moment in Las Vegas (October 3) and Hollywood, CA (October 4) with future dates to come.
