Music, what else

music baby….


JON OLIVA’S PAIN, the band led by SAVATAGE mastermind Jon Oliva, has inked a deal with AFM Records. September 2006 will see the release of the group’s second record, entitled “Maniacal Renderings”. Look for a five-song EP release on June 23 which will include three new songs from the upcoming CD and two live SAVATAGE songs from the 2004-2005 “‘Tage Mahal Tour”.

JON OLIVA’S PAIN‘s new album, tentatively titled “Maniacal Renderings”, was once again recorded at Audio Lab Studios in Tampa, Florida and is described in a press release as “a more progressive, complex and dramatic edge without sacrificing any of the song writing quality that fans have come to expect during Oliva‘s 25-year career.”

JON OLIVA’S PAIN will deliver a small dose of the new CD during their tour and festival gigs in April when both the press and a few lucky fans will have the chance to meet the band and listen to some new songs backstage. Prior to the release in September, JON OLIVA’S PAIN will return for the summer festival run in Europe as well as a co-headlining tour scheduled for November-December 2006.

Commented Oliva on the new deal: “AFM was the obvious choice for us. Complete dedication to their bands, in both support and marketing, is the reason we have made this critical move. The next record for JON OLIVA’S PAIN is taking on a new and more intense direction. We needed a label that not only understood what we are trying to do, but embraced it with genuine excitement. Knowing that your record company is really pumped about the new music helps to drive the recording process to a whole new level of intensity….We’re going to push every button possible!”
