Southern California heavy metal band LEATHERWOLF has posted a brand new video edit (see below) for the song "Dr. Wicked (Rx O.D.)", off the group's latest studio album, "New World Asylum".
"Dr.Wicked (Rx O.D.)", inspired by the infamous "Dr. Death," Jack Kevorkian, who was released in 2007 after serving eight years in a Michigan prison for second-degree homicide for aiding in the death of a terminally ill patient, deals with the subject of assisted suicide. "It's a controversial subject matter for sure but one that concerns all Americans and everyone else for that matter," states co-producer/drummer Dean Roberts. "How do you balance the right to choose when and how you want to exit this mortal coil, which is very much a personal thing, and at the same time safeguard against abuse where individuals may want to play God with your life?"
On the live front, LEATHERWOLF has been confirmed for the the third annual Rocklahoma festival, set to take place July 9-12 on the Catch The Fever Festival Grounds in Pryor, Oklahoma. The "triple axe attack" will help kick things off on "Heavy Metal Day," Thursday July 9, alongside ANTHRAX, SAXON, OVERKILL and METAL CHURCH. The band will also team up with WARRIOR and the reformed DRIVER, featuring guitarist Roy Z (HALFORD, BRUCE DICKINSON) and vocalist Rob Rock (IMPELLITTERI), for a show at the Galaxy Concert Theatre in Santa Ana, California on June 19. On August 29, LEATHERWOLF will be sharing a bill at the Key Club in West Hollywood, California with WARRIOR and L.A. rockers DC4, featuring guitarists Jeff Duncan (ARMORED SAINT, ODIN) and Rowan Robertson (ex-DIO, VIOLET'S DEMISE).
