brainchild of Swedish musician Michael Palace, will release their second album,
"Binary Music" on December 7, 2018.
The band has
released the first taste of music from the album in the form of single "To Have
And To Hold”.
Palace is a Swedish melodic rock band founded by lead singer and
multi-instrumentalist Michael Palace. Heavily influenced by 80’s imagery and
sounds, Palace delivers a massive melodic rock/AOR sound unlike you’ve ever
heard before. With layers of keyboards, Palace deliver a heavier sound than most
in the genre, with guitars a dominating feature. Swirling keyboards, layers of
guitars, and fast moving 80’s themed melodic hard rock is what is on offer on
“Binary Music”. After the very warm reception of the debut album, ”Master Of The
Universe”, Michael was very excited to get to work on the follow up and face the
challenges that came with it. ”I wanted to make an album that will give the fans
even more of what they enjoyed the last time around, all the while staying
creative and not shying away from new musical ideas,” he says.
Michael Palace began working with Frontiers as a songwriter and guitar
player for First Signal (featuring Harry Hess of Harem Scarem fame), Cry of Dawn
(with Goran Edman), Kryptonite (featuring Jakob Samuel of The Poodles), and Toby
Hitchcock. The successful collaborations led to a worldwide record deal with
Frontiers for his own musical output. Then the subsequent success of ”Master Of
The Universe” opened up even more opportunities for Michael to grow as a
musician outside of Palace, appearing on many releases as a guitar player,
songwriter, and at times, producer. Despite his young age, Michael Palace has
accumulated a wealth of experience playing live and recording in the studio with
several different acts in addition to the aforementioned acts and including Code
Red, Jim Jidhed, Erika, Hank Erix, Find Me (Featuring Robbie LeBlanc) and Big
Time to name a few. ”Since the release of the first album, I’ve had the chance
to be involved in a lot of cool musical projects and made more music in two
years than I’ve made in my whole life. It has been a fantastic learning
experience and I’ve brought a lot of that new gained knowledge into the making
of ”Binary Music”. I produced the new album with the guidance from my good
friend and mentor Daniel Flores (Find Me, First Signal, The Murder Of My Sweet),
and I can’t wait to produce more albums in the future,” Michael explains.
