Vocalist Mandy Lion (WORLD WAR III, WICKED ALLIANCE) has inked a deal with HighVolMusic (HVM).
Commented Lion: “I am honored and pleased to announce my collaboration with HighVolMusic! A company run by stellar gentlemen with drive and vision to move forward in a modern business model.
“I would like to thank Bill and John for inviting me to be apart of their tribe. I am looking forward to a long and successful partnership!”
Mandy is best known for his work with WORLD WAR III, which also included Jimmy Bain (RAINBOW, DIO), Vinny Appice (BLACK SABBATH, DIO) and Tracy G. (DIO). The band produced several videos and toured extensively, headlining and opening for such acts as IRON MAIDEN and ANTHRAX. Appice would eventually be replaced by James Kottak (SCORPIONS, KINGDOM COME) and Mikkey Dee (KING DIAMOND, MOTÖRHEAD).
Fast forward to 2013, Lion is solo and better than ever ready to take the world by storm. Pure no-nonsense hard rock with no compromise. Sexy, dark, aggressive and captivating, like no other. His recent sold-out performances at the House of Blues and Key Club in Hollywood, California more than solidified that Lion is back and taking no prisoners.
Commented HighVolMusic VP of AR John Guarnieri: “In a field dominated with egos, it was a breath of fresh air to get to know Mandy Lion over the course of these last months. From our initial meeting at the Rainbow in L.A. to recently hanging out in Maryland at Rock Harvest, it was clear that Mandy is a class act. His music speaks for itself, but it was his charity work that blew me away. Whether it is for dog rights, veterans, or police, Mandy is always ready to lend a hand. It’s going to be a blast working with Mandy at HVM, as we have some great things planned. The music community will once again hear the roar of the mighty Lion!”
Mandy is set to bring his signature brand of metal to the world once again with a stellar lineup backing him. New music is underway, with plans to tour and conquer, so stay tuned.
