July 13, 2017, a year ago
Southern California's long running triple axe attack, Leatherwolf, have announced a UK club tour with special guests The Darker My Horizon, which is set to commence on the heels of the band's Hair Metal Heaven festival appearance at Hull City Hall in Kingston-upon-Hull, England on August 27th.
Joining original Leatherwolf members, Michael Olivieri and Dean Roberts, guitarist Rob Math, and long-time bassist Patrick Guyton on these dates is 21-year old guitar virtuoso Luke Man who, like the band, hails from Orange County, CA.
Explains Olivieri: "Unfortunately, we've had to part ways with Joey Tafolla because he decided to join Graham Bonnet for a tour which collides with our preparations for these upcoming UK shows. Luckily, we found Luke (Man) who is not only an excellent player but happens to live close by and was eager to step in and step up. He's been busting his balls learning the songs and is sounding great! Actually, I went to see him with his band, Railgun, when they played the VIP Lounge at the Iron Maiden show out in San Bernardino and we jammed a couple of Leatherwolf songs! Luke nailed it so I know he'll do great with us. We look forward to unveiling the new lineup live and finally getting back over to Britain for the first time since the 1989 Street Ready tour with Vow Wow.”
