Well June has started with a bit of excitement and drama from 80's metal band, Leatherwolf. The very public back and forth started May 30th with the old Leatherwolf Facebook page posting the below stating there was going to be a new Leatherwolf studio album.
Geoff Gayer and Carey Howe (songwriters of all Leatherwolf Music) are well in to the Songwriting process of a long awaited LW studio album. Surprisingly the tracks are very up to date, heavy and in effect very modern sounding metal, I was only privy to 3 sizzling tracks, all of which where superb masterpieces of real Metal, everything you would expect from two absolute guitar hero's. The tracks "Restless Fate" "The End" & "Red, White & Black" where very well written, produced and arranged pre production versions.
Wade Black on vocals, Pat Guyton on Bass
Dan Bruette (26 yr old pounder) on Drums.......more news to come in the near future for this expected Late Fall release.
Answers: Dean Roberts, Rob Math and Greg Erba don't write any of the LW material. Unlike Michael Olivieri who is an equally big part of LW songwriting like Geoff and Carey, is currently very busy with his solo project. Geoff and Carey support Michael in his endeavor and wish him success.
it is confirmed!! I will be recording the next Leatherwolf record!! To be released in the fall!!' Stay tuned for more info!! Stay METAL!!! \m/
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 the official LEATHERWOLF website www.leatherwolfmetal.com and this FB page for any and all news regarding band activities.
For those that have been asking if I'm still in Leatherwolf ....
The answer is YES! We're writing some killer new music and planning more shows to come!
Just had to clear that up...
