W.A.S.P.: 'Dominator' Release Date, Revised Track Listing Revealed

March 2, 2007

W.A.S.P. will release its new studio CD, "Dominator", in the U.K. on April 16, Scandinavia on April 20, and the rest of mainland Europe on April 27 via Demolition Records. The CD will arrive in South America and Russia in early May.

"Dominator" (view cover here) track listing:

01. Mercy
02. Long, Long Way To Go
03. Take Me Up
04. The Burning Man
05. Heaven’s Hung In Black
06. Heaven’s Blessed
07. Teacher
08. Heaven’s Hung In Black (Reprise)
09. Deal With The Devil

The LP will be released in three versions: a standard single CD package, a limited-edition digipack, and limited-edition vinyl.

Regarding the album title, Blackie Lawless said in a recent interview, "It is based on the idea of Western imperialism and about what's wrong with Washington D.C. It's important that people understand this is not about the American people and it is not a critique on the American people — it is a critique on the government in the United States. If someone looks at the lyrics of 'Dominator', they'll think it's a man talking to a woman. And I like the interesting concept of that because that's what bigger countries do to smaller countries — they toss them like they're their bitch."

A video clip of W.A.S.P. performing the new song "Mercy" on September 6, 2006 at Kaliakra Stadium, Kavarna, Bulgaria has been posted online at YouTube.com. Several video clips of W.A.S.P. performing live in Athens, Greece on October 13, 2006 have been posted online at the W.A.S.P. MySpace group page at this location. A fall 2006 Finnish TV interview with W.A.S.P. mainman Blackie Lawless is available at YouTube.com.
