CHASTAIN: 'Uncut' Version Of 'Surrender To No One' Now Available

The "uncut" version of "Surrender To No One", the comeback album from the reformed CHASTAIN — featuring Leather Leone on vocals — is out now on digital format on Leviathan Records worldwide. Hellion Records will release the "Uncut" edition on CD format in Europe and South America.

Comments CHASTAIN guitarist and leader David T. Chastain: "As a producer and record company owner, it is my job to put together a CD with the best chance of commercial success. However, as a musician/songwriter, I want to hear the music as it was written and recorded. Therefore 'Uncut' is the original version of the CD before the producer (David T. Chastain) got hold of it! Actually, both versions have their good points. More guitar solos are on this version as well as two of the songs are drastically different. Plus I usually edit out things that 99% of the listeners would never notice, such as guitar string noise, amp hum, and other things that drive me crazy. We will leave it to the fans to tell us which they like best!"

Also back in the saddle is original bassist Mike Skimmerhorn. The drum tracks for the CD were recorded by Stian Kristoffersen (PAGAN'S MIND, FIREWIND) since original drummer Fred Coury is still busy touring with CINDERELLA and other projects.

The Leather-fronted version of CHASTAIN recorded five CDs in the mid-to-late 1980s: 1985's "Mystery Of Illusion", 1986's "Ruler Of The Wasteland", 1987's "The 7th Of Never", 1988's "The Voice Of The Cult" and 1990's "For Those Who Dare". After the "For Those Who Dare" tour, David and Leather amicably went their separate ways but kept in touch over the years.

Leather in 2012 released the debut album from her SLEDGE LEATHER project, "Imagine Me Alive". The CD was inspired in 2010 when Leather called Sandy Sledge to collaborate on the Ronnie James Dio track "Egypt" for a demo tribute recording. Due to the overwhelming response for more material, SLEDGE LEATHER was born and was confirmed for Germany's Keep It True festival in April 2011.

Leviathan Records in 2010 released "The Reign of Leather", a collection of CHASTAIN tracks Leather had a hand in writing during her glory days with the band. Leviathan also reissued two of the classic CHASTAIN CDs with Leather: "The 7th of Never" and "The Voice Of The Cult". Both were digitally remastered and are in their original unedited versions.
