Night Ranger has released a new video for the song “Truth”. “Truth” was released on the album “Don’t Let Go” released in 2017.
Blades calls “Truth” a “straight from the heart and soul” kind of song. “When I wrote the lyrics and we came up with the song, it was like, ‘Just give me truth,’” he says. “That’s kind of what this world needs right now. How about a little truth? I mean, with everything. I’m not just talking about what’s going on currently in politics. I’m talking about in the world as a whole. If people were really true to themselves, if everything was just truth, think how it would be. Maybe it’s a fantasy dream and everything like that, and I’m not saying that we’re pie-in-the-sky dudes, because that’s the last thing that Night Ranger is. But I’m saying that we came up with the song ‘Truth’ for that very reason of what this world needs right now is some truth.”
They’ll be celebrating their career on the road this fall by performing their first two albums, Dawn Patrol and Midnight Madness, in full at special concerts in Waukegan, Ill., (on Oct. 18) and in Denver (on Nov. 29). The two shows will feature “a lot of songs that we’ve never played live,” Blades says, along with others that haven’t been performed since the original tours for those albums in the early ‘80s.
“We started rehearsing them and working them up,” he says. “It was kind of like a walk down memory lane. Which basically is what the show is going to be about. We’re going to be telling stories about what was happening at that very time in rock ‘n’ roll in L.A. in 1983 at the Rainbow with Motley Crue guys coming down, with the Ratt guys on tour with us. It’s going to be nuts.
“It’s going to be so much fun. Some of these songs that we’re playing … [drummer and singer] Kelly [Keagy] and I are looking at each other going, ‘What the fuck were we thinking when we wrote those words?’ It’s pretty funny. But it was captured at a certain moment of time and that’s where we were.”
