Steelheart is the brainchild of Miljenko (aka Mili) Matijevic whose powerful voice and multi-octave range is the heart and soul of the band. They have announced the release of their new album, "Through Worlds Of Stardust," set for September 15th, 2017 via Frontiers Music Srl.

"I best describe this album as 'DEEP, SEXY, LOVING, TWISTED, ROMANTIC, and HUNGRY ROCK'N ROLL.' The record was recorded throughout parts of the world including a live string section recorded in Stockholm Sweden. I truly hope you enjoy this album as it was created from the heart and no corners were cut. Love you all; we look forward to seeing you on the road," enthuses Miljenko.

Although they were lumped in with the glut of long-haired hard rock bands emerging in the early '90s, the band was always more forward thinking than their peers and the 2017 version of the band has a contemporary and edgy feel, while still retaining the patented powerful vocals of Miljenko. On Through Worlds Of Stardust, Miljenko has fused his past, present, and future together, creating an undeniable piece of hard rock music. Certainly fans of the band's first three classic albums will be happy to hear those powerful pipes back in action, but fans of modern hard rock acts like Halestorm, Shinedown, Alter Bridge, and other melodic minded rock heavyweights will find much here to love.

Steelheart released their self-titled debut album in 1990. It sold 33,000 albums on its first day in Japan alone, and quickly hit platinum status. The ballad “She’s Gone,” showcasing Matijevic’s incredible vocal range, hit #1 on the International Charts, staying there for 17 weeks. The second single “I’ll Never Let You Go (Angel Eyes)” reached #14 on the billboard charts.

Steelheart’s next album Tangled in Reins included songs like “Sticky Side Up” to smooth ballads such as “Mama Don’t You Cry.” Nearing the end of the Tangle in Reins Tour, Slaughter asked Steelheart to perform one last show that took place in Denver. While performing “Dancing in the Fire,” Mili decided to climb a lighting truss, which was improperly secured and caused Milli to have a near fatal accident. Steelheart ended that night.

In 2001, Mili recorded the vocals for Mark Wahlberg’s character in the movie Rock Star also starring Jennifer Aniston. Mili recorded eight songs for the movie, three of which appeared on the soundtrack including the single “We All Die Young” from his third album, Wait; also produced “Wait” reaching #1 in many Asian countries. From May to July of 2010, Mili toured worldwide with Manzarek-Krieger, formed by Ray Manzarek and Robby Krieger of The Doors, as their new vocalist.

Although Steelheart began as a glam band in the early ‘90s, Mili has transformed Steelheart with their current line-up with Milijenko Matijevic (lead vocals), Uros Raskovski (guitars), Rev Jones (bass), and Mike Humbert (drums) and has turned it away from the glam scene. Their new sound is modern and edgy while still retaining overtones of Mili’s roots.
