UK’s modern hard rocker TAINTED NATION has posted a new song online titled “Loser” which the band co-wrote with Max Martin & Alexander Kronlund. The band’s debut album, F.E.A.R., will be released on January 25th, 2013 via Massacre Records. The song “Loser” can be streamed using the YouTube player below.
The new song is a reworked version of the song “Bimbo“, originally written by Max Martin (BACKSTREET BOYS, BRITNEY SPEARS, KELLY CLARKSON, PINK), Alexander Kronlund and Per Aldeheim for the Swedish pop-rock band LAMBRETTA. “Bimbo” reached position No. 2 on the Swedish singles chart in 2001.
The group, which recently signed with Massacre Records and a worldwide management deal with Germany’s Rock N Growl Management, consists of the following musicians:
Pete Newdeck – Vocals (EDEN’S CURSE, GRIM REAPER, KILLERS, STEVE GRIMMETT)
Pontus Egberg – Bass (THE POODLES, LIONS SHARE, ZAN CLAN)
Ian Nash – Guitar (Steve Grimmett, LIONSHEART)
Mark Cross – Drums (FIREWIND, OUTLOUD, HELLOWEEN, KINGDOM COME)
Tainted Nations‘ music can be described as a commercial, modern and powerful sounding rock mix.
A sample of the song ‘Dare You‘ can be streamed below:
Pete Newdeck, UK based drummer, singer and song writer, who is mostly known for his work with Eden’s Curse and bands like Grim Reaper, Killers and Steve Grimmett, started writing songs with band mate and friend Ian Nash, also Steve Grimmett’s guitar player in 2009.
Being on tour with Eden’s Curse supporting Scandinavian band STRATOVARIUS and Firewind in May 2009 on their UK tour, Pete and Mark Cross, drummer of Firewind at the time, also Outloud, ex-Helloween, Kingdom Come), became close friends and talked about the idea of forming a new band, only this time with Newdeck as the lead singer.
Newdeck’s vocal abilities were truly convincing and in spring 2010 Pontus Egberg, bass player of Sweden’s rock sensations The Poodles, completed the lineup.
Newdeck, Nash, Cross and Egberg, recorded their debut album in the UK and mixed and mastered it in Germany under the supervision of Dennis Ward, producer of many successful international artists and Tainted Nation was brought to life.
