PERFECT PLAN to release the Brace For Impact album in October; Two streaming singles


Frontiers Music Srl announces the upcoming release of Perfect Plan’s third studio album, Brace For Impact, on October 14th. During their first two albums, All Rise and Time For A Miracle, the Swedes quickly established themselves as a new gold standard. not only in the Scandinavian melodic rock genre, but in the melodic rock genre as a whole. Brace For Impact is doing nothing to slow that momentum and fans should do exactly what the album title says in preparation for their latest installment.

Today, the band released not one, but two new singles for fans to preview the album. Watch the video for “Surrender” and listen to the track “If Love Walks In,” below. Pre-order/record Brace For Impact on CD/LP/Digital here.

Label partners Treat, Art Nation, Seventh Crystal, Wildness and Fans Of The Dark will also play. Tickets are now available and can be purchased here.

Asked about the musical direction of the album, singer Kent Hilli said: “Well, tough question…we didn’t think about it too much when we started writing because we want everything to come naturally to us. Everything what we focused on and wanted to do was to write really good melodic rock songs with great riffs and melodies. But I think we have more “rockers” on this album than before. It’s melodic rock in general, but maybe a bit harder than our previous albums But just like our second album, Time For A Miracle, we have a great mix between hard rock, melodic rock and AOR there -in it… and some songs even have prog rock elements and more blues elements mixed in too. And we only have one ballad on this album. Our goal when writing an album is that it feels like playing songs on a jukebox and i think and we succeeded with that on this album. Everything sounds like Perfect Plan 3.0, really! I think we definitely took everything up a notch from the songwriting and lyrics to the arrangements and the overall performance and sound. With the addition of the great Tobias Lindell doing the mixing…it all sounds really big and majestic I think!”

Sometimes the stars align and create a perfect balance of talent within a group. A band like Perfect Plan is the “perfect” example (pun intended): a superb singer, a well-oiled group of experienced musicians and a great songwriting talent with a knack for unforgettable melodies and catchy beats. . Add to that the right single released at the right time and Perfect Plan’s emergence as immediate rising stars on the melodic rock scene is no surprise. The song that ‘built’ their reputation is of course the awesome ‘In and Out of Love’, the debut single/video that launched the promotion for the band’s 2018 debut album All Rise, released on Frontiers in April 2018. band followed up their debut album with second album Time For A Miracle in 2020. Hyperbole aside, it was a big leap through Opting for a slightly heavier, more “in your face” sound, Perfect Plan has matured and created an exceptional balance of melodies and energy, with obvious references to the sound of the classics (think Foreigner, Survivor, The Storm, Giant, etc.) and Scandinavian AOR with a recognizable and personal touch.
