Legendary Orange County, California metal band LEATHERWOLF will be rejoined by bassist Paul Carman for its upcoming European dates in November. "Paul lives out in Colorado these days but he's part of the family so it's good to have him back on board for this European run," the group writes. "It will be the first time since spring 2003 when we played with HALFORD at The Grove in Anaheim that the classic LEATHERWOLF lineup is performing together on stage!"The upcoming shows will be the band's first European dates since reuniting with original lead vocalist/guitarist Michael Olivieri and guitarist Carey Howe earlier in the year.
