LEATHERWOLF Announce UK Dates, Featuring New Touring Member Luke Man





Leatherwolf Announce New UK Tour Dates



Los Angeles, CA, July 13, 2017 - Southern California's long running Triple Axe Attack, LEATHERWOLF, have announced a UK club tour with special guests THE DARKER MY HORIZON which is set to commence on the heels of the band's Hair Metal Heaven festival appearance at Hull City Hall in Kingston-upon-Hull, England on August 27. Joining original LEATHERWOLF members, Michael Olivieri and Dean Roberts, guitarist Rob Math, and long-time bassist Patrick Guyton on these dates is 21-year old guitar virtuoso Luke Man who, like the band, hails from Orange County, CA.

Explains Olivieri: "Unfortunately, we've had to part ways with Joey Tafolla because he decided to join Graham Bonnet for a tour which collides with our preparations for these upcoming UK shows. Luckily, we found Luke (Man) who is not only an excellent player but happens to live close by and was eager to step in and step up. He's been busting his balls learning the songs and is sounding great! Actually, I went to see him with his band, RAILGUN, when they played the VIP Lounge at the IRON MAIDEN show out in San Bernardino and we jammed a couple of LEATHERWOLF songs! Luke nailed it so I know he'll do great with us. We look forward to unveiling the new line-up live and finally getting back over to Britain for the first time since the 1989 "Street Ready" tour with VOW WOW."





The exact UK tour dates are as follows:
Aug. 27 - Hair Metal Heaven, Hull City Hall - Kingston-upon-Hull
Aug. 28 - Bannerman's - Edinburgh*
Aug. 29 - Tivoli - Buckley*
Aug. 31 - The Iron Road - Evesham*
Sept. 01 - The Pier - Bognar Regis*
Sept. 02 - The Fiddler's Elbow - London*
* with The Darker My Horizon

LEATHERWOLF recently released the "Kill And Kill Again" meets "Wolfman" video, including footage from the band's celebrated 2015 Keep It True festival appearance in Lauda-Königshofen, Germany. The audio track was mixed by legendary producer/engineer Chris Tsangarides (JUDAS PRIEST, THIN LIZZY, ANVIL) at Ecology Room Studios in Kent, England and mastered by Tom Baker (JUDAS PRIEST, ALICE COOPER, AVENGED SEVENFOLD) at Baker Mastering in Calabasas, CA.

Band-Maid MCM Comic Con Live Review/Feature - Fringe Festival 29/5/16

J-Rockers Band-Maid make first European performance at huge MCM Comic Con

Band-Maid, one of Japan’s up-and-coming all-girl rock acts, made their live debut to UK/Europe at MCM London Comic Con, which took place from 27-29th May 2016 at ExCel London, hosting the UK's biggest Modern Pop Culture Event.


The Tokyo quintet who formed in 2013, consisting of Miku (guitar/vocals), Saiki (vocals), Kanami (guitar), Akane (drums) and bassist Misa – have been building quite a reputation and fan-base all over with their blend of cute yet deadly rock music and stand out imagery (appropriately dressing as maids) whilst they unleash and deliver their seriously skilled and striking sounds. The concept of the maid outfit aesthetic stems from founder Miku’s experiences in the maid cafes of Akihabara – the Tokyo district known for otaku (‘geek’) culture and passion for rock music.


Through their music videos they have been reaping success and gaining well deserved attention, especially for the videos f…

REVIEW: Spreading The Disease - Insurrection

Modern metal quartet Spreading The Disease from Kent, UK formed in 2014 and then earlier this year in September 2017 they finally unleased their debut album ‘Insurrection’ which shows they are ready to infect metalheads and critics alike with their no-nonsense sounds…
Opening song ‘Find My Path’ starts with a melodic and resonant intro before fierce vocals come in with hard-hitting heavy guitars, it then goes on to feature an effective stripped back section towards the end which gives it extra depth. This is a powerful and strong start to the album.
‘Words Unspoken’ is a thumping tune with great rhythms and is very headbang worthy and incredibly catchy, keeping up the momentum is self-named track ‘Spreading The Disease’ which immediately pulls you in with catchy melodies and is all consuming with mighty riffs and a massive aggressive sound.
Latest single ‘Greed’ is frantic and driven and features some of the best guitarwork so far and again is very belligerent and is bound to get the mos…
