American hard rock band TANGO DOWN posted some exciting news on their official Facebook page moments ago (July 23 10AM EST)! Here’s the message from their page:
Well, we got the green light from the powers that be to drop the first single from the upcoming BULLETPROOF. So ……put ’em up….put’em up…..PUT’Eeeeeem UP. For PUNCHING BAG!!!
It’s GO TIME!! Someone ring the bell!!! Tango Down is BACK, BIGGER, BADDER, and BULLETPROOF!!!
Long known to Decibel Geek staffers, Tango Down severely impressed Brian Ronald, Shawn “Animalize” Irwin and Rich “The Meister” Dillon with their performance at 2015’s Rock n Skull Festival. Here’s what The Meister wrote regarding that set: “Kivel Records artist Tango Down took over the “not that high off the ground” stage next. With Tango Down‘s 2012 Identity Crisis CD, a high one on Meister‘s preference list, and their 2014 Charming Devil CD accompanying us during our driving adventure to get here, thanks to Brian, all three of us were anxious for this one. The vocalist for those two discs had been David Reece, but with him moving on to front the German band Bonfire, who were initially one of the early roster dropouts for Rock n’ Skull 2015, Tango Down brought with them a new frontman. Wondering how this would go over as fans of Reece, we were instantly pleased to find out that Chas West would be leading the pack. You should know Chas from Bonham or Lynch Mob and he has a great set of pipes. Tango Down began with “Punching Bag” in a set that was loaded with backing vocal harmonies as bassist Axel Gessner and guitarist Scott Miller supported West. The Tango Down set didn’t include as much from Identity Crisis as I would have like, being nearly crushed upon looking at the setlist and seeing that “Crying to Me” was absent. But, in the end, it was OK as they took me out of my Identity Crisis comfort zone and got me hooked on more of their catalog. Tango Down are also set to issue a new album, Bulletproof, in early 2016. The setlist looked like this: “Punching Bag”, “Give Me a Reason”, “Bulletproof”, “Corners of My Mind”, “Carry On”, “I’m Done Loving You”, “Charming Devil”, “Change My World”, “Hearts Catch Fire”, with Lynch Mob’s “Wicked Sensation” to wrap up.”
Bulletproof was originally rumored to be releasing in April, but it seems that its’ issue is now in sight on the horizon. Watch here on Decibel Geek for updates on Tango Down and Bulletproof as we receive them.
