Fan-filmed video footage of VANDENBERG'S MOONKINGS, the Dutch rock band led by former VANDENBERG and WHITESNAKE guitarist Adrian Vandenberg, performing a brand new song, "Tight Rope", on July 9 at Streetrock in Bakel, The Netherlands can be seen below. The track is expected to appear on VANDENBERG'S MOONKINGS' sophomore album, tentatively due this fall.
VANDENBERG'S MOONKINGS' self-titled debut album was released in February 2014 via Mascot Label Group.
"Vandenberg's Moonkings" included a newly recorded version of Vandenberg's ex-band WHITESNAKE's classic "Sailing Ships". Special guest David Coverdale added his unique vocals to the equation, to complement Vandenberg's powerful riffs for a welcome moment of nostalgia.
Asked how Coverdale's guest appearance on "Vandenberg's Moonkings" came about, Adrian told Myglobalmind: "Well, David has been pushing me a lot over the last ten years to record a record. Finally, when I told him that I was working on one, David said that 'it would be an honor for me if I could sing a song on your album.' I replied that the honor would be completely mutual. David was then on the road for the whole year, so we didn't have the time to write a new song.
"I always wanted to do another version of [WHITESNAKE's] 'Sailing Ships', because I wrote the song and the music for it actually for my mom," he continued. "She was always saying for me to write another acoustic song for the album. I originally intended it to be a little more understated than it ended up on the 'Slip Of The Tongue' album. I really thought that I could add something to it by making it a little bit more melancholic and more reflective. Bringing in real violins, which I had always pictured with it, so I made it a little slower. I thought it would be great to do a different version and also what I like about how it ends up on the album is that it is like a symbolic nod to my years with WHITESNAKE. I thought that it worked great, because if I had put like a new track somewhere in the middle of the album, it would have been strange."
