Forty Deuce

New band featuring Richie Kotzen!


FRONTIERS RECORDS proudly announces the worldwide release of FORTY DEUCE's debut album entitled "Nothing To Lose" on August 29th 2005 !

FORTY DEUCE's "don't let life pass you by" attitude is powerfully contagious in the most primitive sense. Forging a sound that duplicates their brazen lifestyle, loud fashion and multi-ethnic influences enables this group to bridge cross-cultural appeal.

The lineup includes monster guitar player and singer RICHIE KOTZEN (Mr. Big, Poison), TAKA, a Tokyo native on guitar, ARI (bass) and THR3E on drums.


FORTY DEUCE quickly rose in Los Angeles' club scene with their in-your-face, no-nonsense style of rock-n-roll. Performance after live performance, Forty Deuce's sold out live spectacles have fueled the quartet's reputation of being, as the Music Director of the legendary Phoenix rocker KUPD, Larry McFeelie, says: "a great f*****g band!"

Comments from the press and radios include:

"Amazing songs! Richie's voice is simply amazing."
- Guitar Player

"Taka, a Kyoto, Japan native, combines crunchy aggressive hooks with sophisticated melodies."
- Hits

"Ari delivers a thunderous low-end groove, with a melodious style and visceral power."
-LA Weekly

"Thr3e combines creative originality with the tremendous sound."
- All Access

"Ari and Thr3e lay down a pounding rhythm section that enables Richie to shine in the driver's seat, giving their music a fresh cutting edge sound."

The album shall also have an official release in Japan on King Records and USA to be announced shortly !
