Former JUDAS PRIEST, SCORPIONS, ALICE COOPER, OZZY OSBOURNE Members Join Forces In A NEW REVENGE

A NEW REVENGE (formerly PROJECT ROCK and ROCKSTAR) — the band featuring former members of JUDAS PRIEST, ALICE COOPER, OZZY OSBOURNE and SCORPIONS — has inked a deal with Australia's fastest-growing independent record label Golden Robot Records. The group's debut album will be released later this year.

A NEW REVENGE features one of the finest voices in metal of all time, Tim "Ripper" Owens (ex-JUDAS PRIEST, ICED EARTH), one of the most versatile and name-checked guitarists in rock Keri Kelli (SLASH'S SNAKEPIT, ALICE COOPER, VINCE NEIL), legendary bassist Rudy Sarzo (OZZY OSBOURNE, WHITESNAKE, QUIET RIOT) and longtime SCORPIONS drummer James Kottak (also formerly of KINGDOM COME).

"Here's To Us", the first-ever original song written and recorded by A NEW REVENGE, was premiered in 2013 on Russia's "Drive Time Morning Show With Evgeny Shtoltz". It can be streamed in the YouTube clip below.

Owens told RockEra Magazine about A NEW REVENGE: "It started as an all-star band playing songs from all of our careers. Then we wrote a CD and recorded it, and I can't wait to get it out." He described the band's musical direction as "just good old straight-forward hard rock."
