According to MelodicRock.com, Journey will release their new album, Eclipse, in North America on May 24, exclusively at WalMart. The album, which was produced by Kevin Shirley (Joe Bonamassa, Iron Maiden, Dream Theater) contains 12 tracks, including one instrumental, written by guitarist Neal Schon and keyboardist Jonathan Cain, with input from singer Arnel Pineda.
Schon was quoted by VH1 as saying, "The record, it's been done for a while. It sounds amazing. I'm in love with the record, which I haven't said for a long time."
And Cain told the Las Vegas Review-Journal, "[It's] a concept record with some spiritual themes to it. Pretty tough, hard-hitting stuff. This is Journey with big combat boots on. And helmet and a rifle."
