Rez Band (Resurrection Band) – Hostage – 1984

Hostage was the 6th studio offering from Rez Band. The album surprised and disappointed some fans due to the addition of synthesizer and a new wave sound on some tracks. However old fans weren’t left out as the album featured several hard rock tracks that they loved. The producers/Sparrow Records chose “Crimes” as the “single and in fact a music video was made (available on our channel) that was rumoured to have had some very limited play on MTV. However the real “single” or fan favourite was the more new wave song “S.O.S.”
