New live video of Leatherwolf performing ‘Rise or Fall’ Video filmed at Keep it True 2015 in Germany.
We just wanted to set the record straight regarding a statement/press release that’s been put out there announcing a new LEATHERWOLF studio album featuring former LW members Carey Howe, Geoff Gayer and Wade Black. Whatever Carey, Geoff and Wade are working on – it will NOT be released under the name LEATHERWOLF! The legal rights to the name LEATHERWOLF lie with the line-up featuring original band members Dean Roberts and Michael Olivieri that recently performed on the Monsters of Rock cruise and Keep It True festival in Germany.
It is unfortunate that Carey Howe, the main instigator in all this, is trying to wreak havoc and create the false impression that he, Geoff and Wade are back in LEATHERWOLF, which is not the case. He may have succeeded in hijacking the original LEATHERWOLF Facebook page and YouTube channel but he will not succeed in hijacking the name LEATHERWOLF as well.
We ask you to please only consult this website and the official LEATHERWOLF FB page for any and all news regarding band activities.
So who is gonna come rock the boat with us next year, April 18 – 22, 2015? LEATHERWOLF will be aboard alongside Europe, Night Ranger, Lita Ford, Stryper, Kix, Zebra, Honeymoon Suite, Heavens Edge, Black N’ Blue, Keel, Rhino Bucket, Bang Tango, among others.
Engineered by Michael “Kramarica” Kramer, mixed by producer extraordinaire, Roy Z (JUDAS PRIEST, BRUCE DICKINSON, SEPULTURA, HALFORD), and mastered by Tom Baker (QUEENSRYCHE, JUDAS PRIEST, SEBASTIAN BACH), the album contains several of the band’s biggest classics culled from their highly acclaimed first three albums, including the MTV video singles “The Calling” and “Hideaway”, as well as fan favorite “Dr. Wicked (Rx O.D.)” from their most recent studio release, “New World Asylum.”
As an additional bonus, the band has re-cut their 1989 instrumental standout, “Black Knight”, which originally appeared on the “Street Ready” record.
The “Unchained” packaging features striking artwork by noted conceptual designer Martin Deschaumbault (“Assasin’s Creed”) as well as Marc Sasso (DIO, MANOWAR, ROB ROCK).
“Unchained” track listing:
02. Kill and Kill Again
03. The Calling
04. Rise or Fall
05. Dr. Wicked (Rx O.D.)
06. Wicked Ways
08. Street Ready
