Pink Cream 69 celebrate their 30th anniversary with another album release of “Headstrong” via Frontiers on November 10th. The album was produced as usual by the band’s bassist, Dennis Ward, while there is also a live recording included on a show the band played in Ludwigsburg in 2013. Pink Cream 69 were formed in 1987 by Andi Deris, Alfredd Koffler and Kosta Zafiriou with the singer departing in 1994 and being replaced by David Readman. “Since the release of ‘Ceremonial’, it became evident to us that we had to take a step back to be able to make two steps forward, so we made a ‘master plan’: to resurrect our earliest form of songwriting incorporating these riffs and melodies, reducing the amount of keyboards and keeping the production to a minimum of sonic layers in order to be as true as possible to our sound — the sound of fat and crunchy guitars. I feel that the new ‘Headstrong’ album is a high-energy recording that redeems us as the powerful rock ‘n’ roll band we used to be. After weeks of cross checking the production, listening to the CD in my car, I take great pride in saying ‘mission accomplished.’ We look so very forward to presenting our new baby”, comments Dennis Ward.
