King Of Hearts


There were several dialogues between Tommy Funderburk and Bruce Gaitsch to reunite the legendary duo and make another album from 2010’s and sometimes we heard that they started to write a new material together, but it was never materialised. Tommy commented that the duo wrote 19 new materials for this reunited project. After some really disappointing experiences with traditional labels, they teamed up with a crowd funding company kulaBrands, that funded their studio and production time, allowing the band to record the basic tracks for the new album in January 2019. Unfortunately Bruce Gaitsch suffered a severe stroke on 28th March 2019 during the making of this record. Fortunately reported that Bruce was healing and by intensive rehab made incredible progress of recovery. Due to the absence of Bruce, Tommy was obliged to finish the album with CJ Vanston. The final result is this.
In the meantime, the limited edition digipack CD with band members signature except Bruce were sent to some of 717 project fund backers early 2020, but some could not receive their promised rewards under COVID-19 difficulties etc. Having said that, an unreleased song “I Believe In You” mp3 with advanced 10 tracks mp3 were delivered to the fund backers in July 2019 before its official release.
