GREAT WHITE ENTERS TOP 10 CLASSIC ROCK RADIO CHART
Multi-platinum recording artists, GREAT WHITE announced today that the band’s third single off of Elation, “Hard to Say Goodbye,” has reached No. 10 on the classic rock radio Mediabase chart. The heartfelt single has tugged the heartstrings of audiences, especially the military.
GREAT WHITE released Elation (the band’s 12th studio record) from Frontiers Records in May 2012. Elation thrives on GREAT WHITE’s signature grit and blues-hued sound, only marked with a new synergy.
“’Hard To Say Goodbye’ and ‘Promised Land’ should be staples on Nashville radio this summer,” wrote Brave Words & Bloody Knuckles’ Mitch Lafon.
“Great to see them back and rockin’ better than ever,” said ‘Hitman’, program director for KQXX FM (McAllen/Brownsville, Texas).
“’Hard to Say Goodbye’ from GREAT WHITE brings a great band back to radio, it’s a huge phone request with our ladies,” said Max Volume of KOZZ FM (Reno, Nev.).

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
GREAT WHITE to celebrate the band’s XXXth Anniversary with the release of a new live album out in February on Frontiers
Frontiers Records is pleased to announce the release of GREAT WHITE’s celebrative live album « 30 Years – Live From the Sunset Strip » on February 22nd in Europe and February 26th in North America.
To mark its 30th Anniversary LIVE on March 22, 2012, GREAT WHITE celebrated the only logical way – on stage. In a nod to its early days, GREAT WHITE returned to the infamous Sunset Strip, where a storied past of music’s biggest fans are fused into the walls of the Key Club. GREAT WHITE delivered its entire repertoire to a packed house, pining for the band’s raw energy and cheering its illustrious history track after track.
The Southern California blues hard rock band debuted with a Don Dokken / Michael Wagener produced EP in 1983 and later on were signed by EMI for 1984’s self-titled debut album. Since then GREAT WHITE has achieved worldwide success, encompassing sales of over six million records. They received a Grammy nomination for Best Hard Rock Performance for the song "Once Bitten, Twice Shy" and earned a double platinum certification for the album “…Twice Shy”.
It’s the soulful, blues-based signature sound that turned songs like "Face The Day", "Rock Me" and "Save Your Love" into international hits. The late 80's were boom years for the band, marked by non-stop touring with some of the biggest bands of the era including stints in Europe and Japan. GREAT WHITE recorded two more albums for Capitol — “Hooked”, which was certified gold and “Psycho City”.
With a line up featuring Co- Founder Mark Kendall, Audie Desbrow, Michael Lardie Scott Snyder and new singer Terry Ilous (former XYZ), a natural frontman blessed with bluesy-heritage rock tone, Ilous fits the band like a glove. GREAT WHITE’s biting guitar riffs, contagious rhythm section and newfound energy is ready to honor its past and create the next chapter. 30th Anniversary Live is just one night – but the music is timeless.
« 30 Years – Live From the Sunset Strip » tracklisting includes:
Desert Moon; Lady Red Light; Face The Day; House Of Broken Love; Save Your Love; Mista Bone; The Big Goodbye; Back To The Rhythm; Rock Me; Can’t Shake It; Once Bitten Twice Shy.
