Winger - Rat Race


"Rat Race", is the name of the new video from "Winger". The clip, which was filmed in Nashville, Tennessee with director Jason Green, alternates between black-and-white performance footage and color montages of life's daily rat race.

"In this day and age, how quick you think, hard you try, no matter how fast you run, someone is always gaining on you," states Winger frontman Kip Winger. "We wanted to make sure the video visually represented that."

"Rat Race" is the first single from Winger's new album, "Better Days Comin'", which will be released in North America on April 22 via Frontiers Records. The effort is available for pre-order on Amazon.com in a standard and deluxe configuration. The deluxe edition comes in a glossy digipak and includes the bonus track "Another Beautiful Day" and a DVD including a "Making Of The Album" documentary as well as videos for the first single "Rat Race" and title track, "Better Days Comin'".

Winger has always been known for its incredible musicianship and the trend continues on "Better Days Comin'".

"On 'Better Days Comin'', we drew from our past to elaborate on our future," explains Kip Winger.

"The band is stronger than ever and very excited about the music on this record. We feel this album exemplifies the true sound of the band in every way."

Winger formed in the late 1980s and soared to immediate success with its 1988 self-titled release. The album spawned the hit singles "Seventeen" and "Headed For A Heartbreak" and achieved platinum sales status. "Winger" also stayed on The Billboard 200 chart for over 60 weeks where it peaked at #21. Their next album, "In The Heart Of The Young", also achieved platinum status behind the singles "Can't Get Enuff" and "Miles Away". The change in musical climate of the mid-'90s, compounded with unprovoked ridicule on MTV's popular "Beavis And Butt-Head" show, led the band to go on hiatus in 1994. In 2001, WINGER reunited and has not looked back since.

"Better Days Comin'" is a logical follow up to the critically acclaimed "Karma", which was hailed as one of the band's best releases ever. "Better Days Comin'" is an amazing new record where the four band members: Kip Winger (ex-Alice Cooper), Reb Beach (Whitesnake), Rod Morgenstein (Dixie Dregs, Steve Morse) and John Roth (Starship, Giant) shine with an intense display of incredible instrumental and vocal prowess. A fine set of hard rock songs with an uncanny sense of melody.

Deluxe edition includes one audio bonus track and a DVD including a documentary "Making of the album" and two videoclips.
