Reformed British melodic rockers STAMPEDE are giving away a free download of newly recorded studio track, "Shadows Of The Night", via their Facebook page.
STAMPEDE recently spent time in the studio recording a special remake of "Shadows Of The Night", a song which was an old favorite and always a mainstay of the band's live set.
Although originally recorded live, both for a BBC "In Concert" session and at Reading rock festival in 1982 for the live "Official Bootleg" album, up until now STAMPEDE had never recorded a studio version of the song.
"We wanted to do something to say a big thank you to our fans and to all the people that have supported us this year with the release of our new album 'A Sudden Impulse'," states vocalist Reuben Archer. "'Shadows Of The Night' has always been a real favorite of ours so we thought it would be great to do a studio version to give to our fans."
The band is about to kick off a series of live dates with U.S. rockers Y&T in support of STAMPEDE's new album, "A Sudden Impulse", released in May on Rock Candy Records.
One of the most respected hard rock acts during the early Eighties, STAMPEDE signed to Polydor Records and released two albums of impressive melodic rock to both critical and commercial acclaim, being compared to earthy British bands such as UFO and HUMBLE PIE.
Following regenerated interest brought about by Rock Candy Records' reissue of "Hurricane Town" in 2006, the songwriting partnership of Lead singer Reuben Archer and Laurence Archer decided to reform the band in 2009. Together with original bassist Colin Bond, new drummer Steve Graystone and the addition of a second guitarist in the form of Chris Clowsley, the band has crafted a worthy, if not superlative, long lost follow-up to their studio debut in the opinion of label manager Derek Oliver, who describes the new material as "lean, mean, tough-guy hard rock with all the soulful delivery of classic British steel led by Reuben's instantly identifiable vocal and Laurence's blistering plank spanking burnouts."
