According to, former WHITE LION frontman Mike Tramp is giving TRAMP'S WHITE LION another shot. A European tour is being booked for November-December with dates to be announced soon. U.K.'s CRIMES OF PASSION will provide support on the U.K. shows, which will be the first dates announced shortly. The band will also start recording a new album scheduled for release around April 2007. The lineup for the band is as the last tour and live CD: Mike Tramp vocals and guitar Jamie Law on guitar Claus Longwood on bass Troy P. Farrell on drums and Henning Wanner on keyboards.

Back in November 2005, Tramp announced his plans to "permanently" retire TRAMP'S WHITE LION, stating, "I had put TRAMP'S WHITE LION together for a reason. That reason was giving the fans what they had been asking for all these years. Unfortunately, promoters are not backing this up and no one seems to be confident enough to make a leap of faith to help make this thing happen. This was my final attempt in continuing the legacy of WHITE LION. So from now on, there will be no more looking back at the past, this was the final roar. I will now focus only on my solo career and will take my time finishing my new solo album that will be released sometime next year. I will work on other ways of presenting Mike Tramp live, from intimate acoustic settings to a full band and will be touring whenever it feels right but only when all parameters are in order. Until then, enjoy TRAMP'S WHITE LION 'Rocking the USA' double album out on Frontiers Records now."
