1980's Hit-Makers The Romantics Celebrate 40th Anniversary With Release of New Singles
1980's music legends The Romantics, (featuring Wally Palmar, Mike Skill, Rich Cole and Brad Elvis), best known for their mega hit singles "What I Like About You" and "Talking In Your Sleep," are releasing two new singles and touring the US in celebration of their 40th Anniversary!The Romantics have been busy in the studio recording new music since 2015. The first two songs released that year was an original song titled "Coming Back Home" and a first time holiday recording for the band - a rock and roll rendition of the holiday favorite "Deck The Halls." 2016 ushered in two more releases - remakes of some of the band's favorite songs, "Daydream Believer" and "We Gotta Get Out Of This Place." For 2017, much to the excitement of Romantics fans worldwide, the band released two new singles on June 16th - "Hush" and "I Fought The Law." These releases will be available to fans first as digital downloads, before CD and Vinyl versions will also be made available. A full original album by The Romantics will be released soon.
The Romantics are still touring and currently feature 3 original band members on the front line up, Rich Cole, Wally Palmar and Mike Skill. Drummer Brad Elvis joined The Romantics in 2004 and has been the longest seated drummer with the band, fondly earning him the tag line as the band's "2nd original drummer." Rich Cole rejoined the band in 2010, (after leaving in the 1980's) reviving the band's 3-part harmony allowing The Romantics to perform songs from their first two albums live for the first time since his departure.
