The Brazilian hard rock band KIN WAGON, led by the experienced singer Lean Van Ranna, a musician who has played in many (inter)national bands and projects, have released on all digital platforms and through the labels GL Music/Ingrooves/Universal Music, “Sunrise Will Shine”, the fourth single from their upcoming debut EP entitled “First Arrival“.

The new song shows a more Glam Metal style, reminiscent of a lot of famous bands such as Van Halen and Stryper, which matches perfectly with the motivational theme of optimism due to the high doses of energy and high spirits.
Singer and leader Lean Van Ranna commented: “The lyrics of “Sunrise Will Shine” tell, in a very positive and self-helpful way, the story of a recovered alcoholic who organizes a party to celebrate his achievement and victory against his old addiction.”

The track listing for “First Arrival” is: “All I Want”, “Return To Zero”, “Promised Land“, “Sunrise Will Shine” and “She Just Forgot Me”. Expected to be released in the second half of 2023.
KIN WAGON‘s Hard Rock is a band that embraces classic influences and references, always keeping the technical quality and musical coherence of the style without being tied to labels, providing the listeners with true sensations of instigating déjà-vu and high spirits.
Currently based in São Paulo, the band is formed by Lean Van Ranna (vocals), Yuri Donatti (guitar), Anderson Sherman (bass), and Caio Gaona (drums).
The band already has a new keyboardist as a special guest who will record the remaining songs from the debut album that will be released by European label Dymm Records next year,

Formed by Lean Van Ranna (King Of Salem, Excalibur, Auryah, Menahem, A Taste Of Freedom, Masterful, Melodius Deite) in 2020 under the name Road To Prize, prioritized a sound more focused on AOR and Melodic Rock, even releasing the single “All I Want” in 2021, before going on a short hiatus.
In the following year they returned to their activities as KIN WAGON with a new line-up and a mainly heavier sound based on Hard N’ Heavy, Glam Metal and even a touch of Blues, without leaving their Hard Rock and AOR roots from the 80’s and 90’s aside. In this comeback, they released the singles “All I Want” (re-recording), “Return To Zero”, “Promised Land” and now “Sunrise Will Shine”.
Recently, due to scheduling inconsistencies and conflicts with other projects, the band’s line-up once again suffered some changes with the departure of the experienced Peruvian keyboardist Nilver Perez and the exquisite guitarist Johnny Moraes (who had joined in place of the recently returned Yuri Donatti, at the time for private reasons).
“A shame Johnny couldn’t stay with us, but on one hand we didn’t want to hold such an amazing guy (musician and person) back from flying high in his career as he is doing. Having Yuri back with us full of drive and availability was great, as he composed the arrangements of all the tracks on the EP and 70% of the debut album, and recorded many guitar parts, so he could finish the rest of the tracks as planned. The chemistry between us and our song writing partner Carlos Nogarolli is strong, and now in this new phase the creative process will be shared with new members Anderson Sherman and Caio Gaona, both also great musicians and composers”, commented Lean Van Ranna.
Nilver recorded all his parts on the tracks of the “First Arrival” EP and two more tracks that will be present on the upcoming debut album. Johnny Moraes, as a farewell, will appear on the next release, which will be a version of “Since You Been Gone”, a famous Rainbow classic with Graham Bonnet on vocals, which was recently featured on the soundtrack of the Marvel movie Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.
