In 1981, Canadian supergroup April Wine made a frontal attack on America's FM radio format with its breakthrough album "Nature of the Beast."

After 14 years on the road, the group disbanded in 1984. In 1993, the original members, guitarist/ vocalist Myles Goodwyn, guitarist Brian Greenway, guitarist Steve Segal, bassist Jim Clench and drummer Jerry Mercer, regrouped, released a new album, "Attitude," and flew around the globe for a successful world tour.On Friday, Nov. 11, April Wine will rock the roof at Rafters, 485 W. 4800 South. The doors will open at 8 p.m.

Throughout the 1970s and 1980s, April Wine recorded more than 30 hit singles and released numerous gold and platinum albums. The singles "Roller," "I Like to Rock" and "Sign of the Gypsy Queen" displays April Wine at its best with heavy, back beats, catchy guitar licks and cutting vocals.

The band's trademark love song, "Just Between You and Me" from "Nature of the Beast," hit the Top 25 of Billboard's Top 100 and shot the album into Platinum sales.

The new album "Frigate" features a remix of the band's earlier classic, "Tonight's is a Wonderful Time to Fall in Love," remakes of the Spencer Davis Group's "I'm a Man" and Foghat's "I Just Wanna Make Love to You." But the album's strength rests with April Wine's six new original songs that keep true to the rocking style that held April Wine at the top during it's prime.
