LIONSHEART Announce New Bassist, Keyboardist

LIONSHEART, the British melodic hard rock outfit fronted by former GRIM REAPER/ONSLAUGHT singer Steve Grimmett, have posted the following message on their official web site:

"Following Eddie's departure from the band, ex-BATTLEZONE (Paul Di'Anno) bass player Gavin Cooper has stepped into the breach. At the same time as welcoming Gav into the band we would like to wish Eddie all the best and thanks for all the blood, sweat and tears over the years...

"Joining Gav and coming into the LIONSHEART family is keyboard virtuoso Pete Bartlett (STRANGLEHOLD). As those who have seen us recently will know, Pete has been part of our live line-up for over a year and he adds a great dimension to the sound...

"Both Gav and Pete have worked tirelessly to integrate into the band and to get us into the great position we are now in. We are now exactly where we want to be and ready to TEAR THE ASS OUT OF 2005!! See ya on the road!"

LIONSHEART's fourth studio album, "Abyss", was released in May 2004 through Frontiers Records. The CD was recorded at the Warehouse Studio in Oxford, U.K. during May/June 2003 and was engineered by Steve Watkins.
