WINGER RELEASE VIDEO FOR DEBUT SINGLE “RAT RACE”
Latest Album Better Days Comin’ Available in
North America on April 22nd Via Frontiers Records
iTunes Pre-Order Available at http://smarturl.it/WingerDeluxe
(New York, NY – March 5th, 2014) –Winger returns this week with the first video from their upcoming Frontiers Records release Better Days Comin’. “Rat Race” is the debut single from the album being released in North America on April 22nd. The video for the song can be seen right here:
The video was also featured on the home page of Ultimate Classic Rock. The high-energy song and video alternates between black and white performance footage and color montages of life’s daily rat race. “Rat Race” was filmed in Nashville, TN and directed by Jason Green.
“In this day and age, how quick you think, hard you try,no matter how fast you run, someone is always gaining on you” states front man Kip Winger. “We wanted to make sure the video visually represented that.”
Better Days Comin’ is available for digital download via iTunes at http://smarturl.it/WingerDeluxe. Fans that pre-order the album will receive an instant download of the first single “Rat Race.” The album is also available for physical pre-order on Amazon.com in a standard (http://smarturl.it/WNGR_AmzCD) and deluxe configuration (http://smarturl.it/WNGR_AmzDLX). The deluxe edition comes in a glossy digipak and includes the bonus track “Another Beautiful Day” and a DVD including a Making of the Album documentary as well as the videos for “Rat Race” and title track “Better Days Comin’.” Fans can also order exclusive bundles, autographed items and more from the band’s webstore at http://bit.ly/1hJLPYw.
From the opening riff of album opener “Midnight Driver of a Love Machine” to the final outro lick of “Out Of This World,” it is clear Winger is back and better than ever. Hard rocking songs like “Queen Babylon,” progressive rock movements like “Tin Soldier,” and touching ballads like “Ever Wonder” show the band’s diversity while always centering on great songs. The band has always been known for their incredible musicianship and the trend continues on Better Days Comin’.
Winger formed in the late 1980’s and soared to immediate success with their 1988 self-titled release. The album spawned the hit singles “Seventeen” and “Headed For A Heartbreak” and achieved platinum sales status. Winger also stayed on the Billboard Top 200 chart for over 60 weeks where it peaked at #21. Their next album, In The Heart Of The Young, also achieved platinum status behind the singles “Can’t Get Enuff” and “Miles Away.” The change in musical climate of the mid-90’s, compounded with unprovoked ridicule on MTV’s popular Beavis and Butthead, led the band to go on hiatus in 1994. In 2001, the band reunited and have not looked back since. Winger has made a name for themselves with relentless touring, while winning back fans and critics alike because of their exceptional musicianship, Kip Winger’s powerful vocals and the band’s incredible songwriting.
Winger is comprised of Kip Winger on vocals/bass, Reb Beach on guitar, John Roth on guitar and Rod Morgenstein on drums.

February 28, 2014 - Ryle’s “Deathelectro” Remix is a high energy 128bpm brutal bashing, designed to annihilate dance floors. Reminiscent of top tier EDM acts like Knife Party and Far Too Loud, Ryle showcases his ability capture the essence of an original track, and then smash it to bits by switching styles and mashing genres. His remix is filled with surgical synth work, hyper-edits and glitch cuts, and speaking speaker shaking bass sounds.
Darksiderz flips the cut for a full on 150bpm hardstyle stomp through the underground sound of hard dance. Ready to take your head off with its screeching synths, punishing percussion, and unorthodox use of melodic elements that drive the track forward with unstoppable momentum.
