FOUR BY FATE (FEATURING FORMER MEMBERS OF ACE FREHELY’S COMET, PETER FRAMPTON, SKID ROW, TWISTED SISTER)
SET TO RELEASE DEBUT ALBUM
RELENTLESS OUT JUNE 3 VIA THE END RECORDS
“The passion and grooves are infectious on this record making Relentless one of this year’s most anticipated albums. Four By Fate is Fun For Fans.” – Mitch Lafon
New York, NY (April 14, 2016) – The seeds for the formation of FOUR BY FATE were planted some 30 years ago, when GRAMMY® Award winning bassist/producer John Regan encountered vocalist, guitarist, keyboardist, songwriter Tod Howarth (Ted Nugent, Cheap Trick, and Frehley’s Comet) while Howarth was on tour performing with Rock and Roll Hall of Famer’s Cheap Trick.
Howarth and Regan, whose robust resume includes touring with Ace Frehley’s Comet, Peter Frampton, Stephen Stills, and John Waite, as well as recording credits with the Rolling Stones, Mick Jagger, David Bowie, David Lee Roth, Robin Trower, and Billy Idol, were later joined by guitarist/songwriter Patrick James Gasperini (Pound, Flywheel) and former Skid Row drummer Rob Affuso. Together, their album Relentless will be released June 3, 2016 via The End Records.
Says the band, “We have traveled a long road that had more than its share of challenges…but we stayed the course, and that road has led us home. We are proud to announce our alliance with Andreas Katsambas and his brilliantly creative team at The End Records as our partners. Andreas is a visionary who shares our passion for music and independence, and to be a part of this family and its great roster of artists is very exciting. We are looking forward to bringing you our debut album Relentless this June.”
Adding further rock pedigree, other contributors to the FOUR BY FATE story include Stet Howland (drummer for WASP), Sean Kelly (guitarist for Helix and Nelly Furtado) and celebrated Twisted Sister drummer AJ Pero, who recorded six tracks on the album before his untimely passing in 2015. The drum tracks that Pero recorded for Relentless are thought to be his last recordings.
