Following the tremendous response to their 2010 self-titled EP, the San Francisco Bay-Area bad boys of rock ‘n’ roll MIDNIGHT CHASER return with a full-length album, “Rough And Tough”. A raw and rough romp through nine tracks of adrenaline-fueled hard rock and heavy metal with influences ranging from ’70s JUDAS PRIEST, MOTÖRHEAD and DEEP PURPLE to the harder edge of ZZ TOPand even the New Wave Of British Heavy Metal.
“Rough And Tough” track listing:
01. Awesome Party
02. Out on Your Shield
03. Rough and Tough
04. Swords for Hire
09. Who Dares Wins
“Rough And Tough” is available for streaming in its entirety at this location.
MIDNIGHT CHASER was originally conceived of by guitarist Stephen Lauck and bassist “Texas” Josh Hunt while both still lived in Pittsburgh, the Rust Belt of Pennsylvania. However it wasn’t until both rockers found themselves relocated to the fog-cloaked Bay Area of California that MIDNIGHT CHASER began to take shape.
First recruiting the steam hammer drumming skills of Brandon Thomas, the pair immediately knew that they had found the missing piece of their rhythm section that they had been searching for. All that was lacking now was a voice that could suitably realize their ambitions. Unsatisfied with the pool of vocal talent in their new surroundings they imported fellow Pittsburgh native Scott Atwood in order to complete the original lineup of MIDNIGHT CHASER.
