‘Mad Max’ Signs With ‘SPV/Steamhammer’ [New Album To Be Released March 2012]


25 years after the release of the legendary Night Of Passion album, German hard rock band Mad Max returns with the original lineup —Michael Voss (lead vocals, lead guitars), Jürgen Breforth (rhythm guitars), Roland Bergmann (bass, vocals) and Axel Kruse (drums) — and a new studio album, Another Night Of Passion, due at the end of March 2012 via SPV/Steamhammer.

The CD was recorded at the Kidroom Studio, which is owned by Michael Voss and where albums from Michael SchenkerVengeance and Gary Barden were previously produced. The cover artwork was designed by the Belgian artist Eric Philippe (Rhapsody, TNT) and the photos were taken by the famous German photographer Martin Huch.

Commented Olly Hahn, A&R representative at Steamhammer: “I saw the band back in 1987 where they supported Stryper and they blew me away.

Night Of Passion is a hard rock gem and I’m sure that also Another Night Of Passion will not disappoint any fan who likes classic melodic hard rock.”

Added Mad Max guitarist Jürgen Breforth: “Exactly 27 years ago we were close to sign a deal with SPV/Steamhammer and I’m totally glad that we could fix this now in 2011. With SPV on our side, the new studio album and the original lineup we are ready to burn the stage again!”

Mad Max will support Axel Rudi Pell on a European tour in April/May 2012.

Mad Max has released nine studio albums since 1982 and toured Europe with such bands as Deep Purple, Alice Cooper, Uriah Heep, Stryper, Yngwie Malmsteen and Pretty Maids.
