Revolution Saints is an American supergroup formed by Jack Blades of Night Ranger, Damn Yankees and Shaw Blades; Deen Castronovo of Journey, Ozzy Osbourne, Bad English and Hardline; and Doug Aldrich of Whitesnake, Dio, Lion, and Burning Rain.
Superbly handling drums and lead vocals is Deen Castronovo. Already renowned for his drum talents and backing vocals in Journey, Bad English and more, Deen's excellent vocal talents are in the spotlight on this release. On bass, and co-lead vocals on a few tracks, Jack Blades is well known for his melodic, yet hard rocking approach to songwriting and playing via multiple classic albums by his main band Night Ranger, as well as with the Damn Yankees and the Shaw/Blades releases. On guitar, Doug Aldrich was excited to lend his fiery blues guitar attack to such a unique and melodic band. Doug, who just left Whitesnake after a fruitful 12 year run (including co-writing 2010s critically acclaimed "Forevermore" release) and also of Burning Rain and formerly of DIO, has a deep pedigree and is one of today’s most respected guitarists.
You can tell by the name - and the names involved - that Revolution Saints is not going to be your average rock 'n roll band. The record brings back the classic melodic rock style to where it should be: inspiring, uplifting vocals, soaring melodies and musicianship to die for. Simply put, it is completely badass.
The project is the vision of Frontiers' President Serafino Perugino, who for years had hoped to work on a project where Deen would be the lead vocalist. Having previously worked with all three artists on different projects on Frontiers, having Deen, Jack and Doug on board together was a dream come true for Perugino.
With production overseen by in-house Frontiers man, Alessandro Del Vecchio (who also contributed to the songwriting and played keyboards on the album), the recording process took place in Portland, OR during the summer of 2014.

"Rise" is the third release of the band: produced again by Alessandro Del Vecchio, the recording process took place in Milan and in Doug and Jack’s own studios in California. Songwriting was handled by Del Vecchio, Aldrich and Blades with contributions from fellow Frontiers recording artist Dan Rossall (of Passion) and the poignant ballad “Eyes of a Child” who is hot off the pens of Jack Blades and Tommy Shaw.
