Loverboy to settle Unfinished Business

Loverboy will release Unfinished Business, their first fully-new album in seven years, next month.

In 2012 the Canadian veterans launched _Rock n’Roll Revival _featuring nine re-recorded classics plus three new numbers. Its follow-up contains 10 previously unheard songs – although some of them are older than others. Come Undone was written 40 years ago, guitarist Paul Dean reports.

He explains how the record was named: “We put the song titles up and explained to the fans that this album was 40 years in the making. It was a fun thing; some of the titles they came up with were hilarious, but perhaps a little inappropriate for Walmart. No question – Unfinished Business was the one.”

Dean originally planned to give the album away free, and although that hasn’t happened, he says the release is still “to show our appreciation to the fans who have supported us all this time. Unfinished Business sounds pretty much complete to me – and it only took us 40 years!”

It’s available for pre-order on iTunes (opens in new tab) and lead track Countin’ The Nights is streaming on Loverboy’s Facebook page.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
