Alex Band, the lead singer of The Calling, returns with a new single “Tonight” from his Solo Debut We’ve All Been There which will be released on June 29th.
The inspiring sound of Alex Band’s powerful, emotionally charged voice is immediately recognizable to millions of music lovers, thanks to his former band The Calling’s modern-day classics like “Adrienne,” “Our Lives” and the chart-topping hit “Wherever You Will Go,” which Billboard recently named the #1 Adult Pop Song of the Decade. We’ve All Been There, Band’s solo debut (released June 29th on his own AMB label through EMI), contains the first new material fans have heard from Alex in half a decade. “I’ve lived with these songs for years,” says Band, “and the whole point is to share them with everybody now.”
The torrid first single, “Tonight,” is already in the top 40 on the Hot AC charts, where Band remained a core artist during his years of silence – years that were spent writing and recording the record. The track has also been used in the CW series The Vampire Diaries and can be heard in the TV campaign for this summer’s World Cup. The striking video, directed by TV veteran David Barrett (The Vampire Diaries, CSI: NY, NCIS: Los Angeles), along with the production crew from the Twilight film series, features Band doing his own stunts, including jumping—or more accurately flying—off the top of a cliff. Check out the video that Band describes as “a supernatural love story”, below.
