Christian rockers LIBERTY N' JUSTICE, whose most recent release, "Soundtrack of a Soul", featured an all-star cast of guest musicians — including Mark Slaughter (SLAUGHTER), Sebastian Bach (SKID ROW), Stephen Pearcy (RATT) and Tony Harnell (TNT) — are back in the studio working on their follow-up effort. Described as a "full-production acoustic rock record," "Independence Day" will feature 12 "all-star singers" on 11 songs. The CD will once again be produced by Mike Layne and is scheduled for mid-2007 release. The band has issued the following update on the project:
"At this time we are happy to announce the newest addition to the CD, Tony Mills (TNT, ex-SHY) as he adds his vocals to the song 'Meet My Monster'. In the coming months we will announce the last two songs and their singers. All vocal parts are done and we are finishing the mixing process as we speak. We are all so excited to announce that LNJ and the Brazilian label, Silent Music Records, have come to terms and Silent Music will be handling the South American release of the record."
"Independence Day" will feature vocals by Jani Lane, Jack Russell (GREAT WHITE), John Corabi (ex-MÖTLEY CRÜE, RATT, UNION), Ted Poley (DANGER DANGER), Jaime St. James (WARRANT, BLACK N' BLUE), Kelly Keeling (BATON ROUGE, TSO), Jamie Rowe (GUARDIAN), Shawn Pelata (LINE OF FIRE), David Raymond Reeves (NEON CROSS), and Mark and Shannon Hovland (HOVLAND).
