Lita‘s new solo album, “Living Like A Runaway”, was released on June 19 in North America via SPV/Steamhammer. The effort was made available in four configurations: a double LP, limited-edition CD, standard CD and digital download. The artwork for the album was created by famed rock photographer Mark Weiss.
Lita‘s current touring band consists of the following musicians:
Lita Ford – Guitar, Vocals
Mitch Perry – Guitar
Marty O’Brien – Bass
Scot Coogan – Drums
GRAVE DIGGER‘s new album, “Clash Of The Gods”, will be released on August 31 in Europe and September 4 in North America via Napalm Records. A six-song mini-CD, “Home At Last”, preceded the full-length effort on July 27 in Europe and August 7 in North America.
GRAVE DIGGER‘s new CD was recorded at Principal Studios in Münster, Germany. The band laid down at least 10 new original compositions as well as “a cover version of a male, ‘not-heavy-metal’ artist,” which the group said “won’t be another German ‘Schlager’ song… it will be 150 percent pure GRAVE DIGGER metal. Again we transferred the spirit of the ’80s into the sound of 2012.”
