LITA FORD Confirms Release Date For New Album Living Like a Runaway

On Tour This Summer With Def Leppard and Poison

Legendary female metal icon LITA FORD has confirmed the release date for her new album Living Like A Runaway.  The album will be released June 19th in North America via SPV/Steamhammer.  The album will be available in four configurations: a double LP, limited edition CD, standard CD and digital download.

LITA gave an update on Living Like a Runaway:

"This CD is truly a dream come true.  It took me one year to write this CD along with Producer Gary Hoey and song writing Partner Michael Dan Ehming.  We have dumped out hearts and souls into this amazing CD.  Along with a lot of tears, pain, heartache, laughter, ripping out hair, going hungry,losing sleep and a lot of frequent flyer miles.  :) !!! 
Living Like a Runaway, is like being able to walk through fire and coming out the other side unscathed." 

Coinciding with the album's release, LITA is hitting the road this summer with Def Leppard and Poison on the "Rock of Ages Tour".  The dates for the first leg of the tour have been announced and are listed below.  More dates are expected to be announced soon.

LITA is looking forward to the tour and getting to play the new songs live:

"We are honored with this awesome tour and being able to play with these brilliant musicians.  So strap in tight, it's going to be one powerful journey."

Best known for her work with The Runaways and her solo career, featuring hit singles "Kiss Me Deadly" and the Billboard charting duet "Close My Eyes Forever" with Ozzy Osbourne, LITA is ready to make a return to the throne as the queen of metal.

Europe Added to UK Download festival

Swedens favourite rockers Europe, have now been added to the UK's Download festival taking place at Donington Park in June.

Europe, who are due to release their latest album 'Bag of Bones' in April, currently have a new single out called, 'Not Supposed To Sing The Blues.' 
I have to say I think it's a great track, reminding me of Thin Lizzy a lot in places, certainly through John Norum's excellent guitar work.
It is also staying on track with their material from previous album, 'Last Look at Eden,' Joey Tempest and the guys sound really on form.
Good stuff chaps! 
You can pre-order the album here:

The band will play on the second stage at Download on the Friday evening, 8th June, on the same day that Slash will headline the second stage and the 'freaky' Prodigy, will headline the Main Stage. How sad ...
On the same stage as Europe though, will also be, Terrorvision, Little Angels, Nighwish, The Quireboys and Opeth.
The Sunday lineup has Black Sabbath headlining, scheduled to be Tony Iommi's only UK appearance this year, as he continues to undergo treatment for Lymphoma.
Keeping it a very heavy event, the Sunday bill will also feature Soundgarden and Megadeth, as well as Black Label Society amongst others.
Metallica will headline the festival on the Saturday night, 9th June, with Biffy Clyro (What?!) and Tenacious D, alongside Steel Panther, Trivium and Saxon to name a few.

There's no question that this years Download festival will be one of the heaviest ever!
Phew! Earplugs anyone?!
