Since a child, I have lived and breathed music, but never had the actual chance to live my dream of writing about all things music. Now I can! Hope you enjoy my ramblings about music!

Ultravox is back - 28 year later
Ultravox back in the day...
New wave band Ultravox, who had a massive hit with their 1980 timeless and atmospheric hit Vienna, is to release their first studio album in 28 years, reports music.news.com. Following on from the sold-out Return To Eden reformation shows in 2009, the classic Ultravox line-up has recorded a 12-track collection of brand new songs which will be released on 28 May. Dramatic, passionate and truly epic in scale and sound, 'Brilliant' is not only a prescient reminder of how great this reborn band are, but an exciting and vital addition to an extraordinary catalogue of music which today sounds more current and influential than ever. Emerging from the new wave and electro scenes of the late 70's, Ultravox fashioned a form of electronic rock music that was uniquely powerful and delivered massive hits though the 1980's such as 'Hymn', 'Dancing With Tears In My Eyes', 'The Voice', 'Reap The Wild Wind', 'Love's Great Adventure', 'We Came To Dance'.
