(New York, NY â€“ February 26th, 2014) â€“ One of the most misunderstood hard rock bands to come out of the 80â€™s is returning with their first new album in 5 years. Winger is releasing Better Days Cominâ€™ in North America on April 22nd via Frontiers Records. The notorious band comprised of members Kip Winger on vocals/bass, Reb Beach on guitar, John Roth on guitar and Rod Morgenstein on drums, are back with their latest album.
The album is available for 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 â€œAnother Beautiful Dayâ€ and a DVD including a Making of the Album documentary as well as videos for the first single â€œRat Raceâ€ and title track â€œBetter Days Comin’.â€ An iTunes pre-order will be available soon. The band has always been known for their incredible musicianship and the trend continues on Better Days Cominâ€™.
“On Better Days Cominâ€™ we drew from our past to elaborate on our future. The band is stronger than ever and very excited about the music on this record,â€ explains front man Kip Winger. â€œWe feel this album exemplifies the true sound of the band in every way.”
From the opening riff of album opener â€œMidnight Driver of a Love Machineâ€ to the final outro lick of â€œOut Of This World,â€ it is clear Winger is back and better than ever. Hard rocking songs like â€œQueen Babylon,â€ progressive rock movements like â€œTin Soldier,â€ and touching ballads like â€œEver Wonderâ€ show the bandâ€™s diversity while always centering on great songs. The debut single from Better Days Cominâ€™ is the adrenaline fueled rocker â€œRat Raceâ€ that showcases some of the bandâ€™s best work of their 25 year career.

Winger formed in the late 1980â€™s and soared to immediate success with their 1988 self-titled release. The album spawned the hit singles â€œSeventeenâ€ and â€œHeaded For A Heartbreakâ€ 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 â€œCanâ€™t Get Enuffâ€ and â€œMiles Away.â€ The change in musical climate of the mid-90â€™s, compounded with unprovoked ridicule on MTVâ€™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 Wingerâ€™s powerful vocals and the bandâ€™s incredible songwriting.
