New Single “The Lost and the Lonely” set for release on July 8th

Nashville, TN (June 24, 2013) – Legendary hit-makers LITTLE RIVER BAND are gearing up for their latest album release of AOR masters Cuts Like A Diamond for Frontiers Records on August 24th in Europe and August 27th in North America.   The group will be releasing a digital only single “The Lost and the Lonely,” on July 8th.

Formed originally in Melbourne, Australia in 1975, LITTLE RIVER BAND started enjoying their success in their home country before becoming radio staples in the United States with good songwriting, powerful vocals, and guitar harmonies. They immediately claimed their place as one of the great vocal bands of the ‘70s…and the ‘80s.

Lead singer and bassist Wayne Nelson says “The songs that appear on the album were either written by the band, or submitted to us by other songwriters from the US and Europe. We worked closely with label President/A&R Manager, Serafino Perugino, to choose songs that reflect the style and heart of LRB in it’s 38th year. That process took a little more time than usual, but the end result was well worth the effort. Once chosen, we tailored all the songs into the traditional LITTLE RIVER BAND mold...smooth AOR arrangements with lots of vocals and guitar harmonies. Picking a single for radio with all these good songs to choose from will be difficult…in a good way!”

Through the years LRB has thrived as a highly respected and constantly in-demand outfit, going about their craft with a dedication to excellence and professionalism that few, if any, can match.  The Little River Band nowadays is stronger than ever: there is a new element of youthfulness and vitality, anchored by leader and consummate lead vocalist / bass guitarist Wayne Nelson, who began his LRB career in 1980. Other current LRB members include Rich Herring and Greg Hind on guitars, Chris Marion on keyboards and Ryan Ricks on drums.

LITTLE RIVER BAND is considered to be one of Australia's most significant bands selling more than 30 million albums worldwide.  LRB also set a record for having Top 10 hits in six consecutive years…the first band to achieve that mark. According to BMI, their smash song “Reminiscing” has garnered status with over 5 million airplays while another hit “Lady” is close behind with over 4 million airplays.  In 2004, LITTLE RIVER BAND was inducted into the Australian Recording Industry Association (ARIA) Hall of Fame.

The Lost And The Lonely
Forever You Forever Me
