Swedish Hard Rock-band Starmen have released the first single and video for their song “Radioactive” from their fourth album, Starmenized. This starts the countdown to the album release via Melodic Passion Records and Sound Pollution on September 8, 2023. Their third album By the Grace of Rock ‘n’ Roll in 2021.
In a similar style to Rock heroes from the 1970s and 1980s, the band goes “all the way in terms of image” with full make-up and accompanying stage clothes, wherein each member has their own color. However, Starmen write their own songs and “are not afraid to bring the music of previous decades into the present.”
Frontman and album Producer Kristian Hermanson comments on the new single and album:
It feels great to finally be able to release this first single from the album. We will offer a real hit cavalcade with melodious hard rock, which we hope will reach even further than what we have done before.
The album has a “graphic theme” that consistently revolves around superheroes and Rock stars in a retro comic book style. The band is also preparing to follow up the album with live performance.
