MANOWAR's DEMAIO On Delay In Releasing New Album: 'We're Not A Fast-Food Restaurant'March 16, 2012
Earlier today (Friday, March 16) at a press conference in Bucharest, Romania, MANOWAR bassist Joey DeMaio and promoter Sorin Sararu of Project Events announced the band's headlining performance at OST Fest 2012, set to take place June 15-17 place at the Zone Arena in Bucharest. MANOWAR is scheduled to appear on June 16. Also confirmed for the three-day event are MÖTLEY CRÜE, MOTÖRHEAD, DIMMU BORGIR, EUROPE, MEGADETH and OVERKILL, among others.
During the press conference, Sararu revealed that the new MANOWAR album will be released on June 16. In addition, he said that the first 5,000 people that purchase a ticket to MANOWAR's appearance at OST Fest via Biletoo.ro will be able to download the CD for free on June 1.
Said DeMaio: "I know that a lot of people don't wanna wait another five years for a MANOWAR record, but we hope that people are gonna think that it was worth waiting the time. Because, you know, you go to a restaurant and you order dinner, if the waiter walks in the kitchen and comes back out two seconds later and puts the dinner on the table, I really don't know what you're gonna get. Every now and then I like McDonald's, too — it doesn't mean something fast is not good — but we're not a fast-food restaurant with MANOWAR. We think it's quality, so we hope you're gonna feel the same way."
