JACK RUSSELL’S GREAT WHITE represents the next phase of the iconic singer’s Rock n’ Roll legacy.
Since JACK RUSSELL’S GREAT WHITE inception in 2011, the frontman welcomed back longtime bassist and friend Tony Montana-this time as a guitar player and keyboardist-lead guitarist Robby Lochner (Rob Halford ), drummer Dicki Fliszar (Bruce Dickinson ) and Dan McNay (Montrose ) on bass. The new album on the horizon, which is JACK‘s 14th studio album, boasts the bluesy hard rock stomp that made Russell an icon in the first place.
“I want to say how happy and excited I am about my band,” states JACK RUSSELL regarding the recent signing with Frontiers for the new album. “I have so much respect for Serafino, Mario, Derek and their team and am so thankful to be working with them. The band and I are off the hook about the new material. You are going to love it!”
The Grammy nominated Great White originally broke out of the Los Angeles scene in 1984 with its self-titled debut. The record was followed by the sophomore release “Shot in The Dark” and then by seismic platinum-selling outings such as 1987’s Once Bitten… and 1989’s …Twice Shy (which reached #9 on the Billboard Album chart). Moving over 8 million copies worldwide, they stood out as tried-and-true rock stalwarts into the 21st century until 2011, when Russell went on to form JACK RUSSELL’S GREAT WHITE.
In 2014 JACK RUSSELL’S GREAT WHITE gave fans a taste of new music with the release of the single “Hard Habit” which received rave reviews from fans clamoring for the “classic” early sound of GREAT WHITE. Listen to “Hard Habit” HERE:
Ultimately, the new music is for the millions of fans who stuck by Russell all these years. It’s everything they’ve been waiting for and more. Russell leaves off, “this is fun, first and foremost. I feel like I’m 27 again. I hope it sounds like Great White-but for 2016.”
Frontiers plans to release the new record in early 2017.
