GOTTHARD Guitarist Joins Forces With RAINBOW Singer In CORELEONI

Frontiers Music Srl has announced the signing of CORELEONI, the new project founded by GOTTHARD guitarist Leo Leoni to pay a very personal tribute to his rock and roll past. He is joined in the band by Ronnie Romero (LORDS OF BLACK, RAINBOW) on vocals, Hena Habegger on drums, Jgor Gianola on guitar and Mila Merker on bass.

CORELEONI will release a very special album in February 2018.

Says Leo: "On the 25th anniversary of the release of the first GOTTHARD album, I wanted to pay tribute to songs like 'Downtown', 'Firedance', 'Higher', 'Here Comes The Heat', 'In The Name', 'Ride On…', 'Let It Be' and 'All I Care 4'. Songs that with GOTTHARD we have kind of left aside. We've re-recorded, refreshed, and 're-brushed' them in a respectful way. These songs are very dear to me and they are part of a period that will remain forever with me."

Leoni dusted these songs off and brough a new life to these overlooked masterpieces from his past. The album will also include a new song, "Walk On Water", which will be released in December.

"This CORELEONI project made me feel so many emotions and memories, filling my heart with joy," says Leo. "I hope hearing these new versions gives all the GOTTHARD fans, especially the ones who knew and loved the band in the early days, the same great emotions that it has brought to me."

CORELEONI will play the following shows in Switzerland:

Dec. 21 - Temus, Agno
Dec. 22 - Musigburg, Aarburg
Dec. 23 - Harley Heaven, Dietikon
Dec. 30 - Piazza, Lugano - Radiofestival
