FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

WARRANT ANNOUNCES NEW BAND LINE-UP FOR 2004

WARRANT WELCOMES BACK THE RETURN OF ORIGINAL LEAD GUITARIST JOEY ALLEN

HOLLYWOOD – Warrant, spanning nearly two decades of rock, is proud to announce their 2004 line-up. Having parted ways, with long-time frontman Jani Lane, the band has re-grouped and is keyed up about bringing the new Warrant to life.

The new Warrant line-up consists of original members Erik Turner (guitar), Jerry Dixon (bass) and original member Joey Allen (lead guitar). “It’s been a blast to play the music again,” explains Joey Allen. “I haven’t played these songs for eight or more years. I am totally comfortable being side-by-side with Jerry and Erik again. It feels like home.” Allen joined Warrant in March 1987. His addition to the band became the first official Warrant lineup. Playing Gazarri's, that same month, Warrant broke the attendance-record previously held by Van Halen.

Also joining the new addition is Jaime St. James (vocals) and Mike Fasano (drums). Jaime St. James is best known as the frontman for the band Black 'N Blue. “I’ve known the guys in Warrant for many years when they were still playing The Sunset Strip,” states St. James. “We have the same tastes in music and love to rock. I am thrilled to play with my long-time friends.” Mike Fasano played in Warrant from 2001-2003 and returns for 2004. “As soon as I heard that ‘The Squealer’ was back (A.K.A. Joey Allen), I was in,” says Fasano.

“The positive energy that Jaime brings to the band is contagious,” states Erik Turner. Having Mike Fasano, The Dean Martin of Rock, back behind the kit makes us come full circle. Jerry and I very excited about the future and the making of a new Warrant record. We hope to have it out in fall of 2004.”

I was surprised that the transition from Jani to Jamie had gone so smoothly. It feels like this new combination is meant to be,” explains Jerry Dixon. “I think people are going to be blown away when they hear us. Having Joey back also brings that original Warrant sound back to the band.”

With a new line-up, a fresh sound and band members in place, Warrant is getting ready to head out on the road starting this March. “Playing in this band is fun again. Hearing Joey playing guitar on all the Classics is awesome,” exclaims Erik Turner. “‘Rainmaker,’ ‘Sure Feels Good’ and ‘Ridin' High’ are kicking my butt at rehearsals and I can't wait to play them live for our fans.”
