Karl Logan, lead guitarist of heavy metal powerhouse MANOWAR, was injured on Tuesday, January 24, 2006 in a motorcycle accident. Logan sustained severe injuries to his left arm, which will prevent him from performing for an as-yet-unknown period of time. "MANOWAR will have to reconsider all of our plans, but the good news is that Karl is OK and he'll be back stronger than ever," says MANOWAR bassist Joey DeMaio.
Logan was preparing to record his lead guitar parts for the upcoming, as-yet-untitled MANOWAR album, the release of which will now be delayed. Touring plans are also expected to change as a result of this unfortunate turn of events. However, MANOWAR will soldier on. "We don't have any more information at this time," says DeMaio. "But nothing ever has, or ever will, stop MANOWAR."
More information will be released as it becomes available.
MANOWAR were previously scheduled to release a brand new single, "The Sons of Odin", on February 27.
MANOWAR have sold over eight million records worldwide. The last studio album "Warriors of the World" was a critically-acclaimed chart topper throughout the world, reaching gold status in Germany.
The upcoming MANOWAR album will be released on the band's own label, Magic Circle Music.
