80’s Rockers MAD ANTHONY Release “Party Heaven Hell Whatever!”

Hailing from San Francisco, California, MAD ANTHONY was hands down the BEST unsigned ROCK band of the mid-’80s packing MASSIVE grooves and KILLER hooks from stacks of Marshall amps. Eonian Records will release the band’s album “Party Heaven Hell Whatever!” on November 1st, 2021. Fans of 80’s glam and hair metal bands should absolutely love this album.

The Bay Area has remained an important musical epic center since the rise of the counterculture movement in the 1960s. From musical experimentation to thrash, San Francisco and its neighboring areas have produced some of the most important musical groups in the last handful of decades from the Grateful Dead, Journey, Metallica, Night Ranger, Sammy Hagar, Y & T, just to name a few.

MAD ANTHONY was also all about a huge party, good times, the prettiest ladies, and always ended the night by pulling the crowd onstage for ‘Big Ole Long Red Hot Rod!’ Club owners would lock their bars at 2 am and let the band party all night long …no holds barred! The crowds never left and only got bigger. MAD ANTHONY loved their fans and their primary goal was to give them the best show the Bay Area had to offer. Produced & recorded by Grammy-winning producer, mixing engineer, songwriter, and arranger STEVE FONTANO who recorded many industry giants, as well as numerous shredders from Mike Varney’s SHRAPNEL RECORDS such as Apocrypha, Jason Becker, Marty Friedman, Phantom Blue, Racer X, Richie Kotzen, Tony MacAlpine, Vicious Rumors, and Vinnie Moore just to name a few. Re-mixed and Re-mastered by engineer ROB BEATON which includes recording credits with Guns n’ Roses, Heathen, Sammy Hagar, The Sea Hags, Warrant, Y & T, and many, many more.

Founded in 2008, Eönian Records is an American Indie record label specializing in extremely rare and often never-released classic hard rock, as well as glam & heavy metal from the 1980s and 90s with keen attention to detail, high-quality re-mastering, and stellar packaging.

Eönian Records believes that great music never dies. Just because a lost recording resided in a state of dust and dormancy for the last quarter-century does not automatically mean it should be discarded like an expired condom. If you purchase an album bearing the Eönian Records logo, you can rest assured that it deserved to be released.
