WEAPON - New Clear Power (2023) - full

NWOBHM band WEAPON, led by vocalist/front man Danny Hynes, were formed in 1980. Within 6 months they had signed a worldwide publishing deal with Virgin Music and opened for Motörhead on their 32 dates ‘Ace Up Your Sleeve’ UK tour. They released the double A-sided single ‘It’s A Mad Mad World’/‘Set The Stage Alight’ which reached number 2 in Sounds Magazine’s Top 20… but due to poor management the band split after a couple of years.
Fast forward to 2005… The original line-up was invited to play Headbangers Open Air festival in Germany to a rapturous reception. Since then the band would release three critically acclaimed albums, touring Europe extensively over the years rebuilding a loyal following.

2021 Danny decides to totally reinvent WEAPON and make it more powerful than before and to really embrace the “NWOBHM-label”. With his good friend Robert Majd (Metalite/Captain Black Beard) alongside him they begin writing songs for the next album. Although still receiving treatment for prostate cancer, long time Weapon-bassist Tony Forsythe records his bass parts for the entire album remotely in London. Meanwhile Robert recruits a bunch of Sweden’s finest musicians to record at Wing Studios, Stockholm.
The album, titled “New Clear Power“, also features guest appearance’s by Steve Mann (MSG/Lionheart) and Tino Troy (Praying Mantis) and will be released byt their new label Pride & Joy Music. Other musicians on the album include Oscar Bromvall (Palace), Magnus Ulfstedt (Ginevra), Marcus Johansson (Deathstars) and Mano Lewys.
