ONLY GENUINE THOROUGHBRED MUSICIANS WITH SUBSTANTIAL CREATIVE TALENT SUCCEED IN STAYING AT THE TOP OF THEIR GAME AS LONG AS Axel Rudi Pell HAS. For more than thirty years, the guitarist and songwriter from Bochum, Germany, has released new albums at regular intervals with his ARP band. Reactions from fans and media alike have been consistently positive while impressive record sales, high chart positions and ever-increasing audience numbers at his concerts and tours say it all. From 15 April 2022, Pell's latest studio offering LOST XXIII - his 21st to date - will be available as a digipak, CD, double vinyl album and for digital download, as usual on Steamhammer/SPV. To make the wait more bearable for his fans, the first lead single 'Survive' (including video clip) will be released on 18 February 2022. LOST XXIII is a very special album in Pell's longstanding career, extremely varied, consisting of ten deeply melodic hard rock songs (plus intro) in typical ARP style, as well as a number of fast-paced highlights and surprising compositions. Among the focal points is the title track with it's chorus featuring Arabic scales - as Pell explains "a longer, epic track that's pretty characteristic of me"
