Little River Band's long awaited studio return

Frontiers Records is set to release Cuts Like A Diamond, the new album by Little River Band, in Europe on Aug. 24 and the U.S. on Aug. 27. It marks their first new studio material in a decade.
Fronted by 30+ year LRB veteran Wayne Nelson (lead vocals/bass), the current line up is: Richard Herring and Greg Hind (guitars/vocals), Chris Marion (
keyboards/vocals) and Ryan Ricks (drums).

The first single "The Lost And The Lonely" came out last month was released in July 2013. See the video here:

Of the group's new alliance with Frontiers, Nelson says, "Frontiers approached us 2012 to say they wanted to expand their catalog and they wanted a CD of new material from Little River Band...we knew we had to embrace the new LRB and the more contemporary sound we had been moving into. In the end, I think we accomplished both. We are very excited. From start to finish, we know this is a quality project."

Little River Band was formed in 1975 in Australia. From 1976 through the early 90s,
with original lead vocalist Glenn Shorrock, John Farnham and others, they enjoyed such American pop and adult contemporary radio hits as "It's a Long Way There," "Help Is on Its Way," "Happy Anniversary," "Reminiscing," "Lady," "Lonesome Loser," "Cool Change," "The Night Owls" and "Take It Easy on Me." They have sold over 30 million albums worldwide.
