After 18 months of preparation, heavy rock collaboration STAGMA have released their first single, "Pokerface", from their debut album. Featuring Vinny Appice on drums, "Pokerface" is now available to download from all good streaming services. Accompanying the digital download, STAGMA have also issued an official lyric video which you can check out below.

Alongside Vinny on drums, "Pokerface" features lead singer Rob Mancini, bassist Joe Petro, lead guitarist Neil Fraser and rhythm guitarist Alexandre Santos. Rob Mancini is currently recording the final tracks from his studio in Ireland as Alex mixes and produces at PressPlay studios in Lisbon. "Pokerface" serves as the first taste of the bandís debut album.

Like all musical collaborations, when talented musicians get together great things happen. STAGMA brings together six consummate musicians in a heavy rock collaboration formed by composer/guitarist Alexandre Santos (SCAR FOR LIFE). Featuring Rob Mancini (SCAR FOR LIFE, BONEYARD DOG) on vocals, Neil Fraser (TEN) on lead guitars, Alex Santos on rhythm guitar, Joe Petro (HEAVEN AND EARTH) on bass and Vinny Appice (BLACK SABBATH, DIO) and Patrick Johansson (YNGWIE MALMSTEEN, W.A.S.P.) on drums, STAGMA will be releasing their first album, the self-titled Stagma, in the coming months.

The idea for STAGMA was formed in late 2015, when Alex Santos, guitarist, producer and composer with SCAR FOR LIFE, wanted to create a heavy rock album with a modern approach; melodic and with lots of groove. He got together with British guitarist Neil Fraser and American bassist Joe Petro and STAGMA was born out of this collaboration. Legendary drummer Vinny Appice joined the band to provide his distinctive style of drumming on seven tracks and Patrick Johansson joined STAGMA to record drums for the last four songs, making the bandís debut release a full eleven-track album.

From January to November 2016, Alex composed eleven new songs from his studios in Lisbon, and in the summer of 2016 Vinny laid the foundations for the album by recording seven tracks at his studio in Los Angeles. In the fall of 2016, Joe Petro and Neil Fraser joined Alex at PressPlay Music studios in Lisbon to record lead, bass and rhythm guitar, and Patrick laid down four further tracks from his studio in Florida. In March 2017, Alex Santos composed a bonus twelfth track for the album featuring drummer Simon Wright (AC/DC, DIO, QUEENSRYCHE) and in August 2017, Rob Mancini was reunited with Alex Santos as the vocalist and lead singer for STAGMA. The album was mixed and produced at PressPlay in Lisbon and the first single from the album, "Pokerface" was released on 16 October 2017, prior to an international release of the full album.
