California metallers LEATHERWOLF will be joined by bassist Paul Carman on their upcoming run of dates, which gets underway June 13 at Bobby McGee's in Chicago Ridge, Illinois.
"We're grateful that our old friend Paul has agreed to step in for our regular bass player, Pat Guyton, who is not able to do these shows with us," the band states. "We haven't played with Paul since our last European tour, so we're looking forward to rekindling the old magic, kicking out the jams together and having a great time on the road."
Carman originally joined LEATHERWOLF in 1986 and appeared on the band's two major label studio releases, "Leatherwolf" (1987) and "Street Ready" (1989), which spawned the MTV video classics "The Calling" and "Hideaway" as well as perennial fan favorites such as "Thunder", "Gypsies & Thieves" and "Rise Or Fall".
Carman joins a rejuvenated lineup consisting of original members, vocalist/guitarist Michael Olivieri and drummer Dean Roberts, and the explosive guitar duo of Rob Math and Greg Erba.
LEATHERWOLF is set release a new live album, entitled "Unchained", later this year. It was mixed by producer extraordinaire Roy Z, whose resume includes JUDAS PRIEST, SEPULTURA, HALFORD, BRUCE DICKINSON, HELLOWEEN and many others.
LEATHERWOLF also recently launched a new official web site at LeatherwolfMetal.com where their classic releases are available for purchase as MP3 (320Kbp) downloads. Fans can watch videos, stay informed with the latest news, find tour dates and sign up for the LEATHERWOLF newsletter.
