Ex-ATTACKER Singer BOB MITCHELL Unveils 'Days Gone By' Cover Artwork

Former ATTACKER vocalist Bob Mitchell has unveiled the cover artwork for "Days Gone By", his upcoming collection of remakes of classic-rock tracks from such artists as THE WHO, DEEP PURPLE and LED ZEPPELIN. Check it out below.

The recording sessions for "Days Gone By" wrapped on December 27, 2008 at Digi-Force Studio in Bayonne, New Jersey. A photo shoot also took place before the final recording stage with the band's three core members — Bob Mitchell, bassist Mike LePond (SYMPHONY X) and guitarist Frank Oquendo (DENIM AND LEATHER). Plans are also in the works for three videos to be filmed — for the songs "The Seeker", "Rain" and "Stayed Awake All Night". These full-length clips, along with interviews with the bandmembers, will accompany the new album as a bonus DVD.

"Days Gone By", will be released later in the year. Proceeds from CD and digital sales will go to charity, with the beneficiaries being the American Heart Association and the Christ Hospital Foundation.

Stated LePond: "Doing this project was very special to me for three reasons. First... It was a pleasure and honor to work with Bob and Frank. I have known them both for many years, and we are like brothers. Secondly... Doing a CD for charity is rarely done in today's world of greedy politicians and Wall Street CEOs. The American Heart Association and Christ Hospital foundation are in lock step with my values and faith. Thirdly... It's not very often that I get the chance to cut loose and jam some covers that I grew up with. It's a lot of fun, and I look forward to working with the boys again very soon."

The track listing for the album is as follows:

01. The Seeker
02. Maybe I'm Leo
03. No Quarter
04. Rain
05. Child Of Babylon
06. Stayed Awake All Night
07. Tie Yor Mother Down
