“Instrumental music is where my heart is, and ‘Summer Storm’ might be the song I feel captures my personal style the most: cathartic, driving and emotional,” Strauss said. “While a lot of the upcoming record will have guest vocalists, I’m also so proud of the instrumental tracks and excited to officially unleash this one on the world!”
The new track sees Strauss return to her instrumental roots following her previous single, “Dead Inside,” which featured guest vocals from Disturbed’s David Draiman and saw her become the first-ever solo female to have a number one hit at Active Rock Radio.
Strauss has been working on her second solo studio album, with more news on that to come soon. Her first solo album, the all-instrumental “Controlled Chaos,” was released in 2018 via Sumerian Records.
Strauss recently stepped away from Alice Cooper’s touring band, of which she had been a member since 2014, and joined the live band for Demi Lovato.
