METAL CHURCH singer Ronny Munroe has issued the following update:
"As you all know, we are busy working on the new release. METAL CHURCH is back with a vengeance and we know where you are.
"In appreciation for our fans old and new over the past two plus decades, we have decided to accept artwork for the new cover from those who know us best.....our Congregation! If we accept your artwork and use it, we will include your name on the CD.
"The working title of the new release is 'This Present Wasteland'. So use your imagination. We will desplay some of the artwork we get on the METAL CHURCH MySpace page for everyone to see. We know there are many talented fans out there and we would love to see one of you get the cover. You can submit your artwork to This_Present_Wasteland @yahoo.com.
"This new release is sounding incredable and we are all very excited for you to hear it."
