Jake E. Lee Returns and Previews New Song Feature Cheap Trick Singer
The new song is taken from the band's self-titled album – which is Lee's first in two decades, due for release on January 27th in the UK, 28th in North America via Frontiers Records.
The former Ozzy Osbourne guitarist, who went on to form Badlands, gathered a stack of big names for his recording sessions: Paul Di'Anno (ex Iron Maiden), Rex Brown (Kill Devil Hill, ex Pantera), Todd Kearns and Brent Fitz (Slash), Scott Reeder (ex Kyuss), Maria Brink (In This Moment), Jeremy Spencer (Five Finger Death Punch), Tom Petersson (Cheap Trick) and Sass Jordan (SUN).
The core band consists of vocalist DJ Smith, bassist Ronnie Mancuso and drummer Jonas Fairley. They got together after Mancuso asked Lee to appear in a video for his band Beggars And Thieves.
"I was shocked he agreed," Mancuso admits. "When it premiered there was this kind of outpouring of love for him. Everybody wanted new music – that's when the idea was born."
