California Triple-Axe-Attack metal masters, LEATHERWOLF, have launched an IndieGoGo crowd-funding campaign today in support of their current ”Unchained” touring activities, which includes a fall tour of the U.S. with VICIOUS RUMORS and SEVEN WITCHES.
Drummer Dean Roberts states, “We’re taking LEATHERWOLF across the USA playing 40+ shows in cities we never played before and in cities we haven’t been to in a very long time. Hitting the road is a costly endeavor and our fan support through IndieGoGo will help us reach more fans and add even more shows.” The IndieGoGo contributions will go towards advertising, PR, transportation, lodging, and merchandise.
Aside from the usual crowd-funding offerings like signed CDs, posters and T-shirts, LEATHERWOLF is offering fans exciting perks likes private music sessions where a band member will fly to your hometown and spend a day with you giving you private music lessons or to talk shop. Another amazing perk is a custom built LEATHERWOLF guitar, similar to the one used by frontman Michael Olivieri.
The IndieGoGo YouTube video, which can be viewed at http://youtu.be/qfWNTQojZyk , also reveals the new “Unchained” cover art by one of metal’s hottest artists, Marc Sasso (DIO, HALFORD, ADRENALINE MOB).
The “Unchained” tour promises fans will experience an evening of intense metal music spanning the LEATHERWOLF catalog, including MTV video classics “The Calling” and “Hideaway” and fan favorites such as “Street Ready”, “Gypsies & Thieves”, and “Dr. Wicked (Rx O.D.).”
“Unchained” was mixed by noted producer Roy Z, whose resume includes JUDAS PRIEST, SEPULTURA, HALFORD, BRUCE DICKINSON and many others. Though the release date is yet to be announced, fans can download a free MP3 single of “Spiter” from “Unchained” by liking the only official LEATHERWOLF Facebook page at http://facebook.com/leatherwolfmetal.
