LAKE WYLIE -- With what he's been through the past five years, it's a wonder Tommy DeCarlo is only coming out with an album and not a big budget movie.
Then again, it isn't just any album.
The 48-year-old Steele Creek resident is the lead vocalist on four of the dozen songs on the newest Boston album, which goes on sale today, Dec. 3. "Life, Love & Hope" is the first Boston release since 2002. It will be the sixth album - not counting a greatest hits release in 1996 - for the band known for its classic rock sound and singles "More Than a Feeling," "Don't Look Back" and "Amanda."
It's also the first original album featuring DeCarlo, who began performing and touring with the band in 2007.
"The unmistakeable Boston sound is within this record, and that's a wonderful thing for the fans," DeCarlo said.
