The 19-minute chat is now available for streaming below.Wright recently took part in the recording sessions for the new RHINO BUCKET album, "The Hardest Town", due on May 5 via MVD Visual and Acetate Records.

Wright will join powerhouse American heavy metal vocalist Tim "Ripper" Owens (YNGWIE MALMSTEEN, BEYOND FEAR, ex-JUDAS PRIEST, ICED EARTH) for his upcoming summer tour in support of Owens' first solo album, "Play My Game". The rest of the band will include Chris Caffery (SAVATAGE, TRANS-SIBERIAN ORCHESTRA) on guitar, John Comprix (BEYOND FEAR, RINGWORM) on guitar, and David Ellefson (MEGADETH, F5) on bass.
