Global Warning is a 2008 release by Jon Oliva's Pain. It is the band's third stu
dio release. The record reached #11 in the German MRC Rock Radio Charts during M
arch 2008.[1]
On February 7, 2008, the initial track list of the album was posted at the band'
s forums.[2] On February 8, five song samples from said track list were posted o
n the band's MySpace page.[3] In support of the album, the band announced a tour
of the United States and Europe,[4] with support on the European dates coming f
rom Manticora and Masterstroke. The US tour was scheduled with support from Circ
le II Circle and Manticora. The tour with both JOP and CIIC would mean that Jon
Oliva and Zachary Stevens were on the same bill for the first time since Savatag
e's 1999 tour.[5]
The record features a guest appearance by Ralph Santolla on two tracks: "Adding
the Cost" and "You Never Know".[6] The track "Before I Hang" is made up of two p
revious Savatage songs - the original "Before I Hang" (of which a demo was relea
sed on The Dungeons Are Calling Silver Edition in 2002) as well as Streets lost
track "Larry Elbows". The album also features a tribute to the band's former pro
ducer, Greg Marchak, who died prior to the album's release, entitled "O to G".
