One of the hottest new AOR bands to come out of the underground European scene, Stardust’s independently released self-titled debut EP stirred up quite a buzz in the underground melodic rock scene. The band was put to the attention of Frontiers’ staff during one of the Frontiers Rock Festivals.  Impressed with the band’s melodic rock stylings on their debut EP, Frontiers
moved swiftly to sign the band to the roster. Of the band’s sound, vocalist Adam Stewart says, “We love Def Leppard, Winger, Journey, and all the 80’s stuff…So, we took those influences and mixed it in with our own ‘Stardust’ way of doing things.”

Of notable mention is that none other than the mighty Mark Spiro (Bad
English, House of Lords, Giant) and Swedish guitar hero Tommy Denander
helped the guys with songwriting and production for their debut album.

“One day I got a note from Mark Spiro! He wrote, ‘Hey man, I found a good
song that you would really love, what do you think?’ I immediately listened
to the song and it blew my mind! ‘2nd Hand Love’ is a typical Spiro song
with a magical atmosphere and a catchy chorus. I jumped right on it and made
a new, modern kinda musical arrangement for the song. A riff centered verse,
a bluesy chorus and a brand new intro part,” explains Stewart of first
single, ‘2nd Hand Love’.

“Our first EP got really good feedback from the fans, not only from
Hungary, but from around the world,” says Stewart. “I am certain that our
debut album will be enjoyed by even more melodic rock fans thanks to our new
cooperation with Frontiers. Stardust plays AOR/Melodic Rock with catchy
melodies and lyrics, so Frontiers is truly a perfect home for us!”

Founded by two friends, Adam Stewart (lead vocals) and Tim Keeley (drums)
in 2015, the band is rounded out by Facey (lead guitar and vocals), Dave
Legrand (keyboard), and Ben Martin (bass and vocals). The group’s style is
an amalgam of the classic melodic hard rock and AOR genres, with hooky
choruses, beautiful keyboards, vocal harmonies, and loud guitars in the
style of their favorite mid-80’s bands, bringing to life this well-beloved
music in the 21st century.

Stardust is the latest in a long line of amazing AOR/Melodic Rock signings
for the label, so be sure to stay tuned as they are truly a rising star in
the melodic rock scene.
