PRIMAL FEAR Singer's Solo Album Due In January

PRIMAL FEAR frontman Ralf Scheepers will enter a Swedish studio this summer to begin recording his debut solo album for a January 2011 release via Frontiers Records. The CD will be tracked with the help of Ralf's former GAMMA RAY bandmate and drummer extraordinaire Uli Kusch. An "impressive list of some very prominent guests is already confirmed" to appear on the as-yet-untitled album, which will feature "a killer concept and strong songs," according to Scheepers.

PRIMAL FEAR is currently putting together a new DVD, "16.6 – All Over The World", to be released in June via Frontiers Records. The bulk of the set will be composed of footage from the 2009 concerts in Switzerland and Atlanta, Georgia, with additional material from Japan, Colombia, Brazil, Germany and Sweden. The band says, "[We] still [have] a long way to go [before completing the DVD], but it will be a killer package, including the first official live CD of PRIMAL FEAR, 'Live In The USA', recorded in Los Angeles, Atlanta and New York." The group adds, "Achim Köhler is already working on the mix of the audio stuff." A European tour in support of the new DVD and live DVD will take place in the fall.

"16.6 (Before The Devil Knows You're Dead)", the latest album from PRIMAL FEAR, was released in Europe on May 22, 2009 and was made available in the U.S. in early June 2009 via Frontiers Records.
