Legendary Orange County, CA metal stalwarts LEATHERWOLF have posted a reworked version of "Behind the Gun", featuring returning original vocalist Michael Olivieri, on their MySpace page.
States the band: "We just got 'Behind the Gun' from Jacob Hansen (ROB ROCK, VOLBEAT, COMMUNIC) who is remixing the whole 'World Asylum' album over in Denmark and we wanted to give everyone a taste of what's in store. Mikey is singing his ass off on this one and has never sounded better — he has really stepped up to the plate and delivered what is one of his best vocal performances ever! And Jacob is once again doing a great job mixing. We cannot wait to hear the rest of the tracks and get this album out!"
The reworked version of "World Asylum" with Michael Olivieri on lead vocals, tentatively titled "New World Asylum", is due out later this summer on the band's own NIL8 Records label.
The classic LEATHERWOLF lineup, featuring Olivieri, drummer Dean Roberts, and guitarists Geoff Gayer and Carey Howe, will make its first live appearance with bassist Pete Perez (RIOT, SPASTIC INK) Friday, August 31 at the Galaxy Theatre in Santa Ana, CA opening up for L.A. GUNS. The band is also slated to co-headline the sold-out ninth edition of Germany's Keep It True festival, scheduled for November 3 at the Sporthalle in Dittigheim.
