A New Revenge feat. James Kottak, Rudy Sarzo, Tim “Ripper” Owens and Keri Kelli have album ready to go
Kingdom Come and former Scorpions drummer James Kottak was recently interviewed by the podcast Shut Up And Rock On and revealed plans for his new group A New Revenge.
The new band consists of Kottak, bassist Rudy Sarzo (Ozzy Osbourne, Quiet Riot, Whitesnake, Dio and many more), guitarist Keri Kelli (Alice Cooper, L.A. Guns, Night Ranger) and Tim “Ripper” Owens (Judas Priest, Yngwie Malmsteen, Dio Disciples, Three Tremors) and has an album ready to go but no label as of yet.
Kottak advised (as transcribed by Blabbermouth with slight edits): “I’m totally all in for Kingdom Come because it’s much bigger, way more, the preparation was five times more than I thought it would be. However, I do have my other band, A New Revenge, that’s Keri Kelli, Rudy Sarzo, Tim ‘Ripper’ Owens from Judas Prist. You know Rudy from Whitesnake. Keri Kelli played with Alice Cooper. We’ve had an album in the can for two and a half years, trying to find the right label. We finally found it with an Australian label called Golden Robot Records. That album will come out in../ I want to say late January, February. We’re shooting a few videos and the first single will come along in January. I’m super excited about that, because that’s a little more hard rock with an alternative edge. It has great melody and killer, in-your-face type of stuff. It’s a great album.”
