GUNS N' ROSES guitarist Ron "Bumblefoot" Thal is preparing to release the sixth in a series of singles being made available digitally this year, an original song entitled "Cat Fight". The track, which will arrive on Thursday, June 23, features a guest appearance by one of Thal's "all-time favorite vocalists," Mark Tornillo of ACCEPT.
Commented Ron: "This was a fun song to make!! Very happy Dennis [Leeflang; drums] and I had the music done and invited Mark to sing on it. I've always been a huge fan of his, from his band TT QUICK I'd follow as a teenager to now as singer of ACCEPT. While touring, he sent me ideas for lyrics, came to the studio while home for a few days between legs of the tour, hung out and blasted out killer vocals. Then, the song art... had an idea for a vintage movie poster vibe, and put a message on Facebook and Twitter inviting people to take photos for the song art. Photos started comin' in, and the winning pic jumped out."
An audio sample of "Cat Fight" can be streamed in the YouTube clip below.
Bumblefoot revealed in a recent update via Twitter that he will soon be in "'studio hermit' hibernation mode. [I] will be producing two albums, finishing up a longtime project started in '04... tweakin' gear, gettin' back into producer mode." He added, "If anyone needs their demo/album mastered before I disappear, hit me up!"
