Journey releasing 'Eclipse' on May 24; tour includes Tampa stop



journey.jpgForget the Steve Perry reunion rumors and Don't Stop Believin' covers for a moment. Maybe a new album and North American tour from Journey is just what the economic recovery needs most. And that's exactly what we're getting.

Journey announced that its new album -- Eclipse -- will be released in the U.S. and Canada on May 24 exclusively at Walmart and beginning June 3 in Europe on Frontiers Records. To support the new record, the boys will launch the "Eclipse Tour" with Foreigner and Night Ranger, beginning July 21 at Rio Tinto Stadium in Salt Lake City. The tour includes a Sept. 17 stop at Tampa's 1-800-Ask-Gary Amphitheater.

"I'm in love with this record, which I haven't said about one of our albums for a long time," founding member and lead guitarist Neal Schon said Tuesday. (Hey, Neal. Revelation was a great album, but whatever.) "We've got a lot of hits to play and there's plenty of time to do some new stuff too, so we’re gonna mix it up. We haven't toured with Foreigner for over 10 years, so we're really looking forward to this run."

Along with Schon, new lead singer Arnel Pineda returns to the lineup along with Jonathan Cain, Ross Valory and Deen Castronovo.
