METAL CHURCH Singer's Solo Band Confirmed For ROCKLAHOMA Festival

METAL CHURCH frontman Ronny Munroe has issued the following update:

"I have just been confirmed with my solo band to play at Rocklahoma on Friday, July 11. My solo band consisting of METAL CHURCH's own Rick Van Zandt (ROTTWEILLER) on guitar. Rick Pierce (TKO, Q5, KNIGHTSHADE) on guitar. Izzy Rehaume (ROTTWEILER, PRESTO BALLET) on bass and introdusing 19-year-old phenom Dave Van Zandt on drums. We will perform some songs from my upcoming solo release as well as recent and classic METAL CHURCH favorites. We are all very excited to enjoy this awesome U.S. festival and watch some '80s icons."

Rocklahoma will be held July 9-13, 2008 at the Catch The Fever Festival Grounds, four miles north of Pryor, Oklahoma. TRIUMPH and EXTREME are among the bands reuniting with all or most of their original lineups for this year's festival, which will also feature sets from NIGHT RANGER, CINDERELLA, Bret Michaels, TESLA, ARMORED SAINT, L.A. GUNS and many more. More than 85 bands in all will perform on three giant stages throughout the four days with several more big names to be added in the coming weeks.

METAL CHURCH's new album, "This Present Wasteland", is scheduled for release later in the year via SPV Records.

METAL CHURCH's last CD, "A Light in the Dark", was released in June 2006 via SPV. The LP includes a new version of the classic "Watch the Children Pray" as a tribute to vocalist David Wayne, who passed away in May 2005.
