Marty Punch returns after his successful debut album „Moon Over Baskerville“, which was awarded with four awards at the German Rock & Pop Awards in 2015.

The album includes the 3 singles "Zakopane" (#1 Hit in Poland!) with Tommy Denander on lead guitar, the melodic rock anthem "Universe" with Frank Pané (Bonfire) on guitar and "My Demons" with Bruce Kulick (ex-Kiss / Grand Funk Railroad) on lead guitar (to be released Dec 13, 2019 as single).

The recording and mix was handled by Carsten Enghardt, and the final touches were given to the album by mastering engineer Dennis Ward.

Right now, Marty is working with Tommy Denander on a re-recording of the track “Better Be Strong” from his first album – with Robert Tepper, David Cagle, Steph Honde and Mick White as singers amongst others. This recording will be released for charity in the near future.
