Tunnel™ is album-oriented rock! It used to be the case that you listened to an album by your favorite artist from front to back because every song was great. Everything from the sequence of the songs to the cover art gave you an insight into the artists' vision. In these days of cherry-picking singles from artists not focused on a cohesive, thematic collection of songs, Tunnel™ brings back the musical style that made rock great. If you liked the classic albums of Led Zeppelin, Montrose, AC/DC and Van Halen, you'll probably like the direction Tunnel™ is headed - strong hooks, great melodies, song-oriented and well-played. C'mon along, we're just getting started... Dave Henzerling (King Kobra, Keel, Big Cock, Lizzy Borden) met vocalist Scott Hammons in late 2008 while they were both playing shows with the band Icon. In early 2009, they got together to work on new material for an as-yet-unnamed project and the chemistry just clicked. Dave had already laid down basic tracks with Los Angeles drummer Ryan Hoyle (Collective Soul) and together with Scott on lead vocals, they completed a collection of eight songs by the end of the hot Arizona summer. Produced by Dave Henzerling, Tunnel also enlisted world-renown background singer Marc LaFrance (Bon Jovi, Motley Crue, Bryan Adams) as well as 'Guitar Hero' Steve Ouimette (Guitar Hero III, Rock Revolution) for help with one of the song's orchestral arrangements. The CD was mixed by Chuck Alkazian (Pop Evil, Saving Abel) at Pearl Sound Studios in Canton, MI and mastered by Justin Shturtz at Sterling Sound in New York.
