Former WARRANT frontman Jani Lane has issued the following update:
"The Northern California shows [Wrestle Rock '06, Nov. 9-12] were cancelled by the promoter at the last minute due to lack of funds. They have apologized to myself, Obi Steinman [manager] and the other bandmembers. These things do happen. I, because of certain past circumstances, feel compelled to state clearly… these cancellations had nothing to do with the band or anyone who represents us. We will begin to tour aggressively on the first of the year, starting with a BLOW-OUT New Year's show in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Also, I will keep you posted on SAINTS OF THE UNDERGROUND (formerly ANGEL CITY OUTLAWS)."
In addition to Lane, SAINTS OF THE UNDERGROUND features Keri Kelli (ALICE COOPER) on guitar, Bobby Blotzer (RATT) on drums and Chuck Wright (HOUSE OF LORDS, QUIET RIOT) on bass. Lane recently commented: "We have had the opportunity to mix our record with Andy Johns of [THE ROLLING] STONES and [LED] ZEPPELIN fame, to name two of hundreds. Google him if you don't believe me. He was an English prince and we had a blast working together. It's the best stuff I've done in a long, long time. As a matter of fact, I am talking to Andy about working together on my upcoming solo sequel."
