White Lion: Mike Tramp and the Rock ‘N’ Roll Circuz ‘Stand Your Ground’ Reissue – Colored VINYL/2-LP – 2022 – Soren Andersen
MIKE TRAMP AND THE ROCK ‘N’ ROLL CIRCUZ
“Stand Your Ground”
Coming from a “new” band experience with “Rock ’N’ Roll Circuz” (released in 2009), Mike Tramp, the infamous vocalist for acts such as White Lion and Freak of Nature, decided to repeat the formula in 2011 with his following record. “Stand Your Ground” was, thus, released under the moniker “Mike Tramp and The Rock ’N Roll Circuz”.
It was a plain rock album with the distinct Tramp songwriting. A collection of songs with memorable choruses, rock-solid composition and the in-depth lyrical messages. The album features Soren Andersen, guitar player who now serves his time in the Glenn Hughes band, as well as being a constant collaborator and producer of Tramp’s solo works. “Stand Your Ground” was recorded at Medley Studios with Andersen at helm as producer.
Now, for the first time EVER, “Stand Your Ground” gets a vinyl re-release on double LP, in two color variants (each limited to 300 copies). The album was remastered at Angioni Studios by Marco Angioni.
“It is always the true test; how good something is when you revisit it many years later. Would you change anything, should you have done it different or is it still as good and right as you remember. And yes, the fact is, it is that good. “Stand Your Ground”, is a great kickass rock album, and the bands performance is world class. I am truly proud of this album”.
“Stand Your Ground” will be re-released on digital, double LP (splatter magenta/black and splatter crystal/black/blue vinyls, each limited to 500 units) via Target Records on July 15, 2022 @ this location.
