Heavy hitting rock legends, Night Ranger released its 12th studio album, "ATBPO” (which stands for And The Band Played On), an ode to making music during the pandemic, via Frontiers Music Srl in August 2021. The album is available on CD, color vinyl (a variety of limited edition versions) and digital. The band began writing the album in early 2020, amid the rise of the global pandemic. After narrowing down the song selection and tightening them up to their well-known rock ‘n roll sound, the band hit the studio, although separately, due to the pandemic. Throughout “ATBPO” Night Ranger continues its hot streak that kicked off with "Somewhere In California" in 2011. Ten years and two highly acclaimed albums later, "High Road" and "Don't Let Up," the band's latest studio work, shows them still burning with that high octane hard rock energy. Night Ranger has always had a knack for killer melodies, intricate instrumentation and captivating lyrics, which “ATBPO” delivers all of that and more.
Having sold over 17 million albums worldwide, performed across more than 4,000 stages and captivated a radio audience that exceeds one billion, Night Ranger has epitomized and transcended the arena rock sound and style well beyond that era. The band continue to grow their ever-evolving fan base and they are proof that powerful songs, alongside incredibly talented musicians, are the perfect formula for continued success.
Night Ranger have earned widespread recognition that includes both multi-platinum and gold album status all while leaving their indelible mark on the music industry with a long list of best-selling albums (“Dawn Patrol,” “Midnight Madness,” “7 Wishes,” “Big Life” and “Man In Motion”). Their popularity is fueled by an impressive number of instantly recognizable hit singles and signature album tracks, including legendary titles such as "Sister Christian," "Don't Tell Me You Love Me," "When You Close Your Eyes," the anthemic "(You Can Still) Rock In America," along with "Sentimental Street," "Goodbye," "Sing Me Away" and "Four in the Morning."
Over the years, the band's music has made notable contributions to and been featured in many different areas of global media and pop culture. Night Ranger was one of the first big "video" bands on MTV, with over 10 number one videos. Their songs can be heard in television shows including “The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt,” “American Dad,” “Glee,” “Grey's Anatomy” and “Parks & Recreation.” The band has also had music featured in video games including “Rock Band,” “Guitar Hero” and “Grand Theft Auto.” Night Ranger was also in the hit Broadway musical “Rock of Ages,” the Oscar-nominated film “Boogie Nights” and other feature films including “Friday the 13th,” “Teachers,” “Sixteen Candles” and “The Secret of My Success.” Most recently, the band’s classic hit “Sister Christian” can be heard in a Dr. Pepper commercial. They can also be heard throughout JBL’s "Hear the Truth" brand campaign.
