"MUSIC VIDEO COMING TO VEVO SUMMER 2017"
SET ME FREE
Palangi's creativity is fused with the kick of rock n roll running through his veins. Grounded from a solid support system from his upbringing, his motivation as a songwriter and multi-instrumentalist is focused not by the temptations of partying every day and every night. Frank is determined to follow the positive path without hesitation. Growing up he had to adapt to his medical illnesses and it impacted his lifestyle, but he took a negative and rerouted illness into a strength to use for music. - " I have no plan b in backing down on my dreams"
Palangi is currently working on a new single/EP "Set Me Free" and a new music video to view on VEVO in 2017. "All I can say is this is going to be a heavy rock record more than my past two releases. It's heading in a direction that I feel will grab a new audience. It doesn't jump around style wise as much but more of a focused goal and direction." Break These Chains produced by Brian Craddock will be included in the EP. Frank is self producing, recording and mixing this release for the first time.

BACKGROUND: In 2010, fate crossed paths handing a demo CD to the Grammy Nominated Christian rock band, “Day Of Fire” at Upstate Concert Hall in Clifton Park, NY. Singer Josh Brown (also from Full Devil Jacket) saw the potential and drive and forwarded it over to their Nashville producer Rogers Masson. After receiving an email, plans were on the way travel to TN to record his 1st 5 song EP at music mecca. Masson said, “This is the baddest rhythm section in the land, and along with the vocal guidance from Josh, Frank’s songs are going to turn out amazing." Frank says "The first EP was an amazing experience that pushed me to see the industry side. I felt a platform to stand on with support from these awesome people and drove me to new opportunities from national shows, steady local gigs, and getting internet/local radio play."
