AOR Heaven to Reissue FRONTLINE’s The State of Rock in April
FRONTLINE from Nürnberg, Germany was one of the pioneers of the German hard rock scene. Founded in 1989 by Robert Böbel (guitars, keyboards; EVIDENCE ONE, PHANTOM V), Stephan Kämmerer (vocals), Thomas Riess (bass) und Stephan Bayerlein (drums), their debut album The State Of Rock finally hit the stores in 1994 – a true classic which until today still is regarded as the finest album of the band by many. This record also meant the breakthrough for the guys in Japan where they reached # 10 in the rock sales charts. Straightly after the release, FRONTLINE went on tour in Europe and had the honour to open for various great acts such as GOTTHARD, CRASH TEST DUMMIES, BONFIRE, TYKETTO and CASANOVA.
On April 27th, 2018, AOR Heaven will reissue the rare and out of print album The State Of Rock with two bonus tracks as a limited edition of 1000 copies. The album was remastered by guitarist Robby Böbel.
