Biography

New York City (1987 – 1994, 2001 – present)

Winger is an American hard rock band formed in New York City, in 1987, that gained popularity during the late 1980s and early 1990s. The band’s two platinum albums, Winger and In the Heart of the Young, along with charting singles “Seventeen”, “Headed for a Heartbreak” and “Miles Away”, put the band on the top of the charts by the early 1990s. In 1990, the band was nominated for an American Music Award for “Best New Heavy Metal Band”. As the music scene changed in the early to mid-1990s due to the popularity of grunge, the band faded after their third release, Pull.

The band broke up in 1994, but reunited in 2001 for several successful tours. In 2006, the band’s 1993 touring line-up (minus Paul Taylor but including John Roth) reunited to record the band’s first studio album in over 13 years, IV. The band has toured in support of the album into 2008. In 2009, the band released their fifth album, Karma.
Also Winger officially released a live album in 2007, three official Demos, Rare and Unreleased albums that are called “Demos & More” which is released in 1991, “Rare & Unreleased” in 2001 and “Demo Anthology” released in 2007, contains early Demos, unreleased tracks and live shows. beside that tours in whole USA in early 90s, Winger played a live gig in Tokyo in 1991 that gained popularity in japan on that times.

    Better Days Comin' is the perfect follower to Karma, two great albums in a row, maybe Karma is still better though

    After listening to" Rat Race" and "Midnight driver of a love machine", which are both really great rock song, I was looking forward to this release. But apart from the last track "Out Of This World" which I loved at first listen, the rest really disappointed me, especially the slower songs which are so boring. Better Days Comin' is not bad, it is definitely growing on me with every listen, but I was expecting more, it's a 7/10 to me. And before I forget, in case you are expecting 80's you won't find it here.
