BACKSTORY: Fate crossed paths catching the ears of a Grammy nominated rock band “Day Of Fire” while attending one of the bands last club performances in 2010 in Clifton Park, NY at Upstate Concert Hall. Being one of Frank's influences in the positive rock genre, he made contact with Josh Brown (also singer from Full Devil Jacket) at the show and took his demo CD. A few days later, their producer Rogers Masson (worked with Marylin Manson, Vintage Trouble) made contact with Frank after being impressed with his material and soon after began production on the debut “Frank Palangi EP” released in 2011. The sessions were held in music center of the world, Nashville, TN. Rogers said, “This is the baddest rhythm section in the land, and along with the vocal guidance from Josh, Frank’s songs are going to turn out amazing.” Mastered by Mult-Grammy award winner Gavin Lurssen (Rober Plant. Foo Fighters, Eric Clapton, Queens of the Stone Age). Frank says "My first EP grew my sound into the place where it needed to be get to the next level, steering it toward a more mainstream sound. I had so much fun flying down to TN with my experiences in the music mecca. I met a lot of great musicians and was absorbed in the culture. It gave me a platform to stand on and led to opportunities in radio, national shows, and the start of an online presence."
