LEATHERWOLF to play first Southern California show with new addition Luke Man
Long running Orange County, CA Triple Axe Attack, LEATHERWOLF, will be teaming up with Sunset Strip peers ODIN for an afternoon show on Saturday, November 18 at the Slidebar in Fullerton, CA. It will be the band’s first Southern California show with new guitarist Luke Man who underwent his live baptism of fire during a recent UK run of dates. Man joins original LEATHERWOLF members, Michael Olivieri and Dean Roberts, guitarist Rob Math, and long-time bassist Patrick Guyton.
Says Olivieri: “Lots of people have been inquiring about us playing L.A. over the past months and now we finally got a show for all you SoCal headbangers. And, it’s a freebie to boot so don’t miss this one! We wanted to do this much sooner but as those of you who keep tabs on us know we’ve had a couple guitar player changes which put a wrench into us doing shows. We’ve since done a UK tour with our new guy, Luke (Man), who came through with flying colors and proved to be a great fit on and off stage. So we’re really looking forward to unveiling the new and improved line-up live and kicking out the jams! And with ODIN sharing the bill with us, it’s gonna be a double dose of glorious 80’s heavy metal nostalgia – can you believe we last played together 32 years ago at The Palace in Hollywood?! Crazy how time flies! We hope to see you guys at the Slidebar, and don’t forget – the madness gets under way at 3pm.”
LEATHERWOLF recently released “The Calling” video, the latest in a series of clips filmed at the band’s celebrated 2015 Keep It True Festival appearance in Lauda-Königshofen, Germany. The audio track was mixed by legendary producer/engineer Chris Tsangarides (JUDAS PRIEST, THIN LIZZY, Y&T) at Ecology Room Studios in Kent, England and mastered by Tom Baker (JUDAS PRIEST, ALICE COOPER, AVENGED SEVENFOLD) at Baker Mastering in Calabasas, CA.
