This marks the band's first new music release in 44 years, delivering a powerful reminder that their musical flame burns as fiercely as ever.

Kelakos, originally from Boston and upstate New York, captured the hearts of rock lovers in 1978 with their debut album, "Gone Are the Days." Their unique blend of robust rock rhythms, captivating guitar leads, and strong vocals created a timeless sound that resonates with influences from icons like Grand Funk Railroad to Santana.

Now, Kelakos is set to release a 12-track marvel that will solidify their place in rock history. "Hurtling Towards Extinction" is a testament to the band's enduring artistry and passion for music. Each track is a rich tapestry of sound that showcases the distinct Kelakos signature style.

George Kelakos Haberstroh, the charismatic lead singer and guitarist, continues to enchant with his warm voice and spontaneous guitar licks. Carl Canedy, after a prolific career producing heavyweights and drumming for The Rods, brings his legendary skills to this record. Mark Sisson, whose journey took him from guitar to pedal steel and lap guitar, infuses the album with new textures. Linc Bloomfield, having ventured into international security and music production, returns with fresh inspiration and profound musical contributions.

This album is not just a collection of songs; it's a mosaic of experiences and a bold statement that Kelakos is back and ready to rock the world once more. The first single, "Livin’ On The Planet Love," promises to be an instant classic, with George's signature vocals set against a backdrop of Mark's steel guitar artistry and the tight, rhythmic precision of Carl and Linc.

Fans can pre-order the album via KELAKOS Official Pre-Order and stream the single "Livin’ On The Planet Love" at Listen to Planet Love. "Hurtling Towards Extinction" drops on Friday, December 1st, under the DEKO ENTERTAINMENT label, with ADA handling distribution.
