Orange County heavy metal “Triple Axe Attack” LEATHERWOLF has announced a free show on September 2 at the Slide Bar in Fullerton, California. This will be the band’s first live appearance in over a year and will mark the live debut of new guitarist Rob Math who takes over for Greg Erba. He joins original members Michael Olivieri (vocals, guitar), Carey Howe (guitar), and Dean Roberts (drums), along with bassist Patrick Guyton.
LEATHERWOLF is putting the finishing touches on its “Live At The Galaxy” DVD, which was filmed during the band’s 2009 performance at the Galaxy Theatre in Santa Ana, California. A sneak preview of the song “Thunder” is available below.
In other news, the members of LEATHERWOLF would like to express their condolences to the family and friends of vocalist Chris Adams who passed away last month. Adams joined LEATHERWOLF in 2001 and recorded one demo with the band before partying ways again. Drummer Dean Roberts states, “Hearing of Chris‘ passing comes as a shock to us. Even though he was only part of LEATHERWOLF for a short time and we lost touch over the years, he helped us develop embroynic versions of a couple of songs, including ‘King Of The Ward’, which later ended up on the ‘World Asylum’ album. Rest in peace, brother.”
