Letherwolf have announced the addition of vocalist Wade Black (ex-Crimson Glory, Seven Witches) who is set to make his debut on the group's forthcoming new studio album, currently in production and due out in 2006.

Black joins core members Dean Roberts (drums), Geoff Gayer (guitar), Carey Howe (guitar) and bassist extraordinaire Pete Perez (Riot, Spastic Ink) who has stepped in for long-time member Paul Carman.

"Wade came to our attention via his work on Crimson Glory's Astronomica, which is stellar to say the least. It seemed like his voice would work very well with the Leatherwolf sound and the direction we're pursuing on the new album, which is turning out to be our heaviest, most progressive record yet", states drummer Dean Roberts. "When we contacted Wade about checking out some of the new music and possibly demoing a song he was not only up for it but also delivered! Next thing he was on a plane out to L.A. for a face-to-face meeting and to lay down a track at our home studio, which turned out excellent. We can't wait to get busy with Wade and finish up this record, which should happen in August/September. We've tracked 13 songs, 11 or 12 of which will make the album, and Wade is working on vocals and lyrics back home in Florida as we speak before coming back out here to record."

Commented Black: "I am very pleased to have been giving the opportunity to work with these guys. I look forward to writing, recording and making some serious noise in 2006. I feel that I am making the right decision for myself, as I feel I always have. I am not here to make comments about anything from my past. It has been a great ride, and as always, I am grateful where I have been and where I may go. Thanks to all the people out there with the Metal Ear! I'm looking forward to stompin’ a stage near you!"

First turning the metal world on its ear with their eponymous mini-album for Tropical/Enigma in 1984, later expanded to a full-length release internationally, Leatherwolf became one of the most respected outfits of the late 80's via a pair of now classic albums for Island Records, Leatherwolf (1987) and Street Ready (1989), as well as several MTV videos before disbanding in the early 90's. The band's classic line-up resurfaced in 1999 with a storming live album, 'Wide Open', and a string of sold out local dates as well as an appearance at the prestigious Wacken Festival in Germany. Leatherwolf also supported Judas Priest vocalist Rob Halford's solo band on their farewell appearances at the Hollywood House of Blues and the Grove in Anaheim, CA in the spring of 2003.
