God Rest Ye Metal Gentlemen
Wednesday, December 11, 2013
Some of you may recall in 2002 BOSTON released their take on God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen, which for a time was available for download via boston.org.

An updated version of this song, titled God Rest Ye Metal Gentlemen, is now available for download via the iTunes Store. It is the same recording that Tom Scholz did in 2002 featuring Kimberley Dahme, Gary Pihl and drummer Tom Hambridge, but with some minor changes. The original version of the song was also featured on Uncle Joe's Rockin' Xmas Show in 2006.

Download it now on iTunes.

New Album Updates
Friday, November 01, 2013

The new BOSTON album Life, Love & Hope has been available for preorder on Amazon.com for a few weeks already; now it's available to preorder on iTunes.

The first single Heaven on Earth is also available to purchase. The Canadian release has a special bonus.  As was posted on Facebook and Twitter, The Orchard has a listing with a version of the album due for release the same day as the US release December 3, but with a bonus track. It wasn't Te Quiero Mia, which is the Best Buy bonus track, but O Canada. There had been no announcement made previously regarding any other versions of the album or other bonus tracks. The listing on the Canadian iTunes store shows O Canada as the 12th track on the album, running at a length of 1:28.

BOSTON had performed O Canada - Canada's national anthem - during their stops in Rama, Belleville and London, Ontario last year.

For those who love vinyl, SoundStageDirect is taking preorders for the album in 180g Audiophile Virgin Vinyl on 2 LPs. This release is even more interesting as it contains both bonus tracks mentioned, and it's a limited edition of 1,000!
