JON OLIVA'S PAIN To Enter Studio In March

JON OLIVA'S PAIN, the band led by the SAVATAGE mastermind Jon Oliva, has issued the following update:

"JON OLIVA'S PAIN is deep into pre-production for our fourth release, due out later this year. 13 songs are on the table, with another six still in their infancy. Expect us to deliver another 60-plus minutes. We are determined to make this record heavier and more diverse than the previous three CDs. We have done quite a bit of experimenting over the past two albums, but there is a real desire to push our performances and Oliva's voice harder than ever. Recording will begin at Morrisound Studios in Tampa [Florida] in late March.

"Touring news: JON OLIVA'S PAIN is so far confirmed for five European festivals (more to follow) as well as dates in South America. Festival appearances, South American dates and Euro acoustic shows will be announced in the coming weeks. We will hit the U.S./Europe again in the fall of 2009 in support of our next release and we are in negotiations to film a live DVD for an early 2010 release. The DVD will feature not only JON OLIVA'S PAIN material, but also a healthy onslaught of SAVATAGE classics."

JON OLIVA'S PAIN's latest album, "Global Warning", was released in the U.S. in May 2008 via Locomotive Records. The CD features a guest appearance by guitarist Ralph Santolla (OBITUARY, ex-DEICIDE, DEATH, ICED EARTH) on two songs: "Adding the Cost" and "You'll Never Know".
