LEATHERWOLF Re-Entering The 'World Asylum'

June 18, 2007

California metal stalwarts LEATHERWOLF have issued the following update:

"As some of you may have heard/read through the grapevine, we will be re-releasing the 'World Aslyum' album with Mike Olivieri on vocals! This has nothing to do with us being unhappy with Wade's [Black] performance on the album — we still think he did a great job. But now that we have Mike back we decided it was worth having him sing on the songs; Mike loved the record when he first heard it and was eager to re-cut the vocals once he decided to rejoin. We just shipped everything off to the esteemed Jacob Hansen over in Denmark, who also did the original 'World Asylum' mix. We are looking forward to be able to present you a wicked-sounding album very soon. Stay tuned for an exact release date."

LEATHERWOLF recently posted a video of the song "Behind the Gun", directed by Karpis Makusdian, on its MySpace page. "Behind the Gun" comes off "World Asylum", which was released in June 1006 and features original members, guitarist Geoff Gayer and drummer Dean Roberts, alongside singer Wade Black (CRIMSON GLORY, SEVEN WITCHES),guitarist Eric Halpern (KRUCIBLE, Z-LOT-Z),and bassist Pete Perez (RIOT, SPASTIC INK).

The classic LEATHERWOLF lineup, including vocalist/guitarist Michael Olivieri and guitarist Carey Howe, is slated to co-headline the ninth edition of Germany's Keep It True festival, scheduled for November 3 at the Sporthalle in Dittigheim.
