Cleveland thrash metal legends DESTRUCTOR will release their new album, "Forever in Leather", on October 9 via Auburn Records. The release was pushed back slightly so the dates could be coordinated internationally with all the distributors.
Produced by BREAKER guitarist Don Depew, the album was recorded at Metro Sync and Noise Floor Studios in Cleveland, Ohio and was mastered by Mark Klein. Aaron "Pants" Sechrist designed the cover art and CD packaging graphics.
"Forever in Leather" final track listing:

"Skull Splitter", a song written about DESTRUCTOR's 2004 Bang Your Head!!! festival appearance in Germany, is available for streaming exclusively on the band's MySpace page.
DESTRUCTOR will take part in the "Metal On Metal 25th Anniversary Concert" on Saturday, September 15 at the Beachland Ballroom in Cleveland, Ohio. Also appearing on the bill are RAVEN, ANVIL and PILEDRIVER. All four bands will be doing full headlining sets. Cleveland bands MANIMALS, SOULLESS and LICK THE BLADE will support.
