Sonic Night Music Club‘s press release states (with slight edits):

The Tracy G Group, featuring former Dio and WWIII guitarist Tracy G, will release their new album “Tramp” October 13th, 2017 via Sonic Night Music Club.

LA’s Tracy G Group is back with its heavy release “Tramp”. The album showcases outstanding former Dio and WWIII guitarist Tracy G’s blend of modern day heavy metal. Joining Tracy on the album are drummers Ray Luzier (Korn) and Patrick Johansson (Yngwie Malmsteen, W.A.S.P.) as well as powerful vocalist Michael Beatty and labyrinthian bassist Randy Oviedo.

Legendary vocalist Ronnie James Dio said of Tracy G “he’s got so much more passion and he’s really one of the best guitarists that I’ve ever played with.” “Tramp” features bone crushing riffs and a barrage of both instrumental and lyrical intensity along with all the guitar hero level licks. The Tracy G Group is creating true-to-form heavy metal music for the next era of metal music…”

Wikipedia states the following about Tracy G‘s career (with slight edits):

“He would later play in a variety of bands, including with future member of Great White, Jack Russell. He also put together the bands Love/Hate with singer Jizzy Pearl, and Swift Kick. He would play at almost any club he could find to get his publicity out. He also played with vocalist Rudy Torres and drummer Audie Desbrow (Great White) in Riff Raff, a very popular band around southern California in the early days of hard rock and heavy metal.

Tracy then joined Dio. In his six years with the band, Tracy G was featured on two studio albums, (Strange Highways and Angry Machines), and one live album (Inferno: Last in Live). He left the band in 1999 when he was asked to play rhythm guitar while Craig Goldy took lead. Dio decided to bring back Goldy, who had played with him on the Dream Evil album.

Tracy G formed The Tracy G Group, which included Jeremy Masana on bass guitar, Donnie Rodriguez on drums and, respectively, Tracy G on guitar.

Currently, Tracy G is in the band Goad-ed. They have released two albums and Tracy has released numerous solo albums as well.”
