To coincide with their tour with Rick Springfield, Loverboy has released a new single. The song, "Hurtin", doesn't reach the heights of 2007's "Just Getting Started", but it's decent. Isn't this a model Journey should replicate? Release a single on ITunes to satisfy die-hards and keep Neal from getting bored?

Mike still sounds good, but that song's pretty bland.

Definitely! At this time there is literally no excuse for a band to not release new material in some fashion.

Not great, but not bad. The vocals sound overwhelmed through the first minute or so and then again later in the song. I would throw it in the playlist rotation every once in a while.

Didn't really care for the new tune. Absolutely loved Just Getting Started and their last single Heartbreaker though.

Yeah, it sounds like a throw away, pretty weak.

I listened to the song but that isn't something I'll be doing again. It was pretty weak.
