PRETTY MAIDS To Release New Album in March
The band released Pandemonium in 2010 and then celebrated their 30th anniversary with the video for the track “It Comes Alive (Maid in Switzerland)”.
Regarding the success of Pandemonium vocalist Ronnie Atkins states:
“We knew it was going to be a tough one to follow. I remember back in the day when we had to follow-up albums like ‘Future World’, we tried more or less to copy the songs from the previous album to keep the same kind of balance. But this time we just wrote what came natural to us and that’s what became Motherland.”
Regarding the new album Motherland and working with producer Jacob Hansen, Ronnie states:
“Jacob was a natural choice since we had a great experience with him producing the Pandemonium album. The recordings went smooth to begin with, but then we had to start touring again during the weekends and this created some stress. Though I really feel strongly about Motherland. In my view, it has all the ingredients of a good Pretty Maids album, maybe even more melodic than Pandemonium and absolutely, as far as I’m concerned a worthy follow-up.”
