Dutch-born international band Vandenberg and Mascot Records / Mascot Label Group have premiered the lead video for “House on Fire” from the band’s upcoming new studio album titled Sin. It’s a party song with darker lyrics depicting a person who, frustrated by what other people in have in life, wants to burn things down.
Adrian Vandenberg shares about the album and track:
Like every other band or artist we were forced to ‘hold our horses’ when we found ourselves playing our part in one of those Hollywood ‘Outbreak’ style movies these past Covid years. Without having auditioned for a role. You’ll understand we were extremely eager to ‘break out of the stables’ with a loud bang, so we thought it’d be more than appropriate to ‘set the world on fire’ with this new track! House On Fire’!
Guitarist and namesake Adrian Vandenberg is joined by vocalist Mats Levén, drummer Koen Herfst, and bassist Randy van der Elsen on this new album Produced by Bob Marlette (Ozzy Osbourne, Alice Cooper, Rob Zombie).
For me, music is very much like a painting You have your ups, downs, lights, and shades. One song might make you want to jump on the table and party your brains out. Another song will inspire you to think. Either way, you’re thrown into a landscape, which my favorite albums still do to me. You could be in your car or at home with your headphones plugged into a soundsystem, and you’re in a different world.
Adrian Vandenberg had his own band, but was then sought out to join Whitesnake, where he played on the 1987 recording of the #1 hit “Here I Go Again,” on the 8x-platinum Whitesnake. He co-wrote the entirety of 1989’s platinum Slip of the Tongue and spent the ensuing tour sharing axe duties with none other than Steve Vai.
In addition to playing guitar on and cowriting Restless Heart from David Coverdale & Whitesnake, he performed hundreds of shows as part of the band for some twelve years. 2013 saw him launch Vandenberg’s MoonKings, releasing MoonKings (2014), MK II (2017), and Rugged and Unplugged (2018).
Vandenberg, as a band, returned with the comeback LP, 2020.
