The album is mixed by long-time Motörhead producer and Grammy winner Cameron Webb and mastered at Abbey Road Studios, and will be available worldwide through US label Cleopatra Records to be released on all formats including a special limited edition red vinyl and CD with full colour 20 page booklet.

The disc presents ten mega-titanic tracks with titles such as “Cat’s Eye Night” and “Holloway Motel”. This release will uncompromisingly reintroduce fans to the gutsiest rock ‘n’ roll on the planet!

The new album will be preceded by a single released March 3rd titled “Hitman” that features special guest and long-term friend, ex Iron Maiden guitarist and member of Lionheart Dennis Stratton.

“It was a great pleasure to be asked to provide a solo for Hitman and having guested on stage with Leader of Down on a recent UK show it was great to be back with the boys and appear in the video as well…” offered Dennis.

We were thrilled to have Dennis play on our first single from the album, we can’t wait for you to hear this new record and get back out on the road…” said Leader of Down.
