Up-and-coming Hungarian melodic rockers Stardust will release their highly anticipated second studio album, Kingdom Of Illusion, on 16th June. Another stunning showcase of their Melodic/AOR chops, it also sees them effortlessly delving into a more harder edged sound. A first single and video from the album for the song The Fire is available now.

Stardust are one of the hottest bands in their genre to emerge from the European underground scene in years. A self-titled EP had created an initial buzz, which led to their signing to Frontiers and the release of an acclaimed 2020 debut album, Highway To Heartbreak.

Founded in 2015, Stardust is an amalgam of classic ’80s-style melodic hard rock and AOR, with hooky choruses, beautiful keyboards, vocal harmonies and loud guitars breathing fresh life into the genre. Following the overwhelmingly positive reception to their debut, Kingdom Of Illusion sees these ambitious rockers further developing their sound for what is another ambitious and successful release.
