In addition, the band has announced a Los Angeles-area show at Paladino's in Tarzana on Saturday, August 16. This will be the first L.A. show since its sold-out House of Blues concerts with RATT in April.
LITTLE CAESAR is currently working on material for a new studio album, tentatively due in 2009. "The first three new songs we are working on for the new LP are really rocking and Ron [Young] has laid down some great vocals with some clever lyrics," says guitarist Loren Molinare.
LITTLE CAESAR's eponymous 1990 Geffen Records debut was produced by Bob Rock (METALLICA, MÖTLEY CRÜE, THE CULT). The album was a no-nonsense collection of hard rock in the vein of '70s giants like BAD COMPANY and HUMBLE PIE, and was also brimming with classic R&B influences, garnering widespread acceptance and positive reviews from the rock media. The follow-up effort, "Influence", was produced by Howard Benson (DAUGHTRY, PAPA ROACH, P.O.D.) and came out in 1992. The group subsequently split up and reformed in 2002.
