The Cars- Reunite and Release New Album and Tour sans Ric Ocasek Print E-mail
Wednesday, 15 March 2006
After 17 years the eighties rock’n’roll band "The Cars" are reuniting today as "The New Cars” to announce a brand new live album entitled "The New Cars: It's Alive". The album also features three new studio recordings written by original Cars band members Elliot Easton (guitar) and Greg Hawkes (keyboards) and new lead singer and guitarist, Todd Rundgren (New York Dolls, Meatloaf, Patti Smith, Hall and Oats) replacing Ric Ocasek.One of the new Studio recordings, "Not Tonight" will be released as the first single. The album was recorded live in Los Angeles earlier this year. The press conferencewill reveal details of the new album (released in the UK in mid May), and the band's co-headline tour of the US with Blondie. In the next few weeks, the band will be announcing details of their UK and European tour dates.

Originally signed to Elektra Records, The Cars scored top ten hits with Best Friend's Girl, Drive, You Might Think, Shake It Up, Just What I Needed, Let's Go, etc. The Cars first came to world acclaim with their 1978 debut album produced by Roy Thomas Baker (Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody"). The band were one of the first subversive rock groups to ride the New Wave movement from 1978 throughout most of the 1980s, but were also one of the few to generate massive commercial success since they last performed live together in 1989. One of the original lead singers and bassist, Ben Orr, died from cancer in 2000.
