THE RETURN OF HARD CORE
11/13/17

Loverboy guitarist Paul Dean's debut solo album, Hard Core, is now available digitally for the first time. That's right folks; you can find it on Spotify and Apple Music, as well as iTunes, Google Play and more.

This is undoubtedly an exhilarating set, as evidenced by the album's first single, "Sword & Stone," which was written by Paul Stanley, Bruce Kulick and Desmond Child, and was originally intended for KISS' Crazy Nights album. Fun fact:  track "Under the Gun" even features a Jon Bon Jovi harmonica solo.

Keep in mind that the digital drop of Hard Core—originally released in 1989 via Columbia Records—serves as a precursor to long-awaited new material, which Dean has been working on and is nearly ready to introduce to the world.

Celebratory head-banging is encouraged.
