OVERKILL, METAL CHURCH, LEATHERWOLF Confirmed For ROCKLAHOMA

Rocklahoma, the premier eighties music festival in the United States being held July 9-12 in Pryor, Oklahoma announces Thursday as "Heavy Metal Day."

General Manager of Catch the Fever Music Festivals Mark Nuessle had this to say, "Rocklahoma is a celebration of the eighties music that made rock great! Our Thursday lineup consists of a heavier sound as we spotlight the music of SAXON, OVERKILL, METAL CHURCH, LEATHERWOLF and, of course, recently announced headliner ANTHRAX!"

LEATHERWOLF's vocalist/guitarist Mike Olivieri stated, "It is definitely an honor to bring the triple axe attack to Rocklahoma this year and being part of such a stellar lineup of bands. I'm looking forward to playing a great show and help make this year the best four days of classic metal anywhere on the planet. We'll see you there!"

D.D. Verni of OVERKILL said, "We're psyched to be part of the Rocklahoma festival! OVERKILL have been doing the summer festivals in Europe for many years and it's always a great time. So doing one in America with old friends like ANTHRAX and METAL CHURCH should be a fricken blast."
