German metal queen Doro Pesch has revealed to Metal Jacket Magazine in a new interview that she is planning on releasing her long-awaited follow-up to 2012's "Raise Your Fist" album next summer. She said (see video below): "We're gonna put out a new record next year. So it will be out… We wanna try to time it, like, first week in August — punctual for the Wacken [Open Air] festival [in Germany] — and then we're gonna do a big tour."
Doro's last release was the "Love's Gone To Hell" single, which came out in April 2016 through Nuclear Blast. In addition to three versions of the title track, the six-track maxi single also contained two live tracks: "Rock Till Death", featuring Hansi Kürsch (BLIND GUARDIAN) and "Save My Soul".
Pesch told EMP Live TV in a 2015 interview that she had some "heavy" and "really fast songs" in the works for her next studio album.
"Raise Your Fist" boasted guest appearances by MOTÖRHEAD's Lemmy Kilmister and OZZY OSBOURNE/FIREWIND guitarist Gus G., and artwork by British artist and longtime Doro collaborator Geoffrey Gillespie.
