BACK IN MID-2021, I FOUND OUT ABOUT A RELATIVELY NEW BAND CALLED LEATHER DUCHESS. I WAS IMMEDIATELY IMPRESSED WITH THEIR DEBUT ALBUM ‘GUNSLINGER‘. THE ALBUM COVER LOOKED REALLY COOL AND THE SONGS SOUNDED FANTASTIC! SINCE THEN, LEATHER DUCHESS HAVE RELEASED THEIR SOPHOMORE ALBUM TITLED ‘FATAL MOON‘ WHICH POSSESSES THE SAME QUALITIES AS THEIR DEBUT RECORD. IF YOU LIKE BANDS SUCH AS DANGEROUS TOYS AND DIRTY LOOKS, ODDS ARE THAT YOU’LL ALSO REALLY LIKE LEATHER DUCHESS. I GOT THE CHANCE TO CHAT WITH LEATHER DUCHESS’ FRONTMAN TYLER HEATH ALMOST TWO MONTHS AGO. I THINK I WOULD BE PRETTY HARD PRESSED TO FIND A MORE PASSIONATE HAIR METAL FAN / MUSICIAN THAN TYLER HEATH. I GOT THE IMPRESSION THAT HE EATS, SLEEPS AND BREATHES HEAVY METAL BUT AS I FOUND OUT, THERE ARE OTHER FACETS TO THE MAN! LEATHER DUCHESS, CONSISTING OF HEATH ON LEAD VOCALS, MARC EDGAR ON GUITAR, JAKE WOLF ON DRUMS AND COLTON SEAVER ON BASS, ARE ABOUT TO EMBARK ON THEIR ‘FATAL MOON TOUR 2023’ ACROSS NORTH AMERICA WHERE THEY WILL BE HITTING 23 CITIES (SEE TOUR DATES BELOW) SO MAKE SURE YOU CATCH THEM ON TOUR IF YOU CAN!
Leather Duchess‘ Fatal Moon album:
Sleaze Roxx: Thanks for doing the interview. Let’s get started with the basic question for any newer band. How did the band get started in the first place?
Tyler Heath: The band officially formed in 2014. I met the guitar player, Marc Edgar, in Oklahoma when I was still living there and a friend of mine named Storm Roll. He was one of the original guitar players in the band. I met him at a Faster Pussycat show in Oklahoma City, and I was talking to him about him joining my band in Oklahoma. He was like, ‘Man, I don’t want to commit to anything. I am moving to L.A. in a few months. I’ll jam with you but I am moving out there so I don’t want to commit.’ He and I became friends. He introduced me to Marc and these guys were planning on moving out to L.A. together. I was kind of in a place in my life where I needed a change and didn’t really know what I wanted to do or where I wanted to go. My band there in Oklahoma City wasn’t really doing anything or showing any promise, and the scene there was just so hopeless in terms of playing…
Sleaze Roxx: [Laughs]
Tyler Heath: … as far as ’80s glam rock goes. So I just figured I’ll move out there with these guys and see how it goes. Worse comes to worse, I can move back home in six months and say I tried it. So I moved out here with Marc and Storm. We lived in a hotel for several months. Storm — he was in the original line-up of the band — we were a five piece as we had two guitar players and then Jake, Colton and Marc. Marc on guitar, Storm on guitar, Colton on bass and Jake on drums.
Sleaze Roxx: Didn’t Colton join the band later on?
Tyler Heath: Yeah, after we moved here. We moved to LA. Storm actually knew him. He said, ‘I know this guy up in the Sacramento area.’ He said, ‘He’s really cool. He’s in the same music that we are into. He is talking about moving to LA. We should have him play bass.’ So he hooked us up with Colton and that’s how he came into the picture. And then we found Jake — we went to see Junkyard at the Whisky and Jake’s band was opening up for them. And Jake was playing bass and singing for them because that guy does everything! So we became acquainted with him after that show. We were looking for a drummer and he was like, ‘Well, I play drums but I’m not a drummer by trade. I’ll fill in until you all find a guy.’ He was supposed to be a fill in and he ended up really liking us [laughs]. His other band that we was in would not let him wear the make-up and wear all the super glammy stuff that he wanted to wear, and we would allow him to do that. All of a sudden, he had found this group that was letting him be him. He vibed with us a little better and ended up joining full-time and there was a little friction with that band for a while but it’s all cool now.
Sleaze Roxx: [Laughs] Cool! And what about Jake, has he ever talked about playing another instrument in the band or he is content on drums?
Tyler Heath: Errr, yeah. He’s pretty content on drums. I like that he can play everything. History could have been different. Had we not had Colton, he might have ended up as our bass player. Maybe there’s an alternate universe somewhere where Jake is on bass. He’s a ‘Jack of all trades’ for sure. He’s a pretty good singer. He plays bass. He plays guitar. He does it all.
Sleaze Roxx; I noticed that on the ‘Gunslinger’ album, it doesn’t look like Colton is playing on it. What happened there?
Tyler Heath: No. Colton left the band. So we formed in the summer of 2014. We played a bunch of shows in the following months from about August to October. We were playing several times a week. Later that year, he kind off came up to us and said, ‘Guys, I really love this band. I am having a great time but I want to move back home.’ You know, [it’s the] classic tale. ‘I got to move home. This isn’t working.’ He was kind of couch surfing and slumming around Hollywood as we all were. He formally left in late 2014 and after that, we just had a revolving door of bass players. I am not even sure that I could name them all.
Sleaze Roxx: [Laughs] How many did you have?
Tyler Heath: Ummm, a good four or five. A couple that we considered official and a couple that — you know — fill in until you find a guy. And then, that’s right. We ended up just putting Storm on bass and playing a few shows with him on bass. He was planning on moving [back] to Oklahoma as well. So, he was playing bass — and this was two years later — we didn’t record that album until 2017. But he actually does not play on the album. He just decided, ‘We’ll just go in there and cut this album.’ Again, Jake is a perfectly competent bass player so he plays bass on the album but Storm is on the back of the album. Colton wasn’t in the picture at the time.
Sleaze Roxx: Alright, and when did Colton get back into the picture?
Tyler Heath: Storm ended up moving back home to Oklahoma and he kind of lost interest in playing music altogether. He cut his hair and [has] kind of given up all of his rocker clothing. It was kind of just over, moving into other things and stuff, which happens. Some of us are lifers, some of us move on to other things. Colton came into the picture — let’s see, we had a bass player named Luca — he joined after we recorded ‘Gunslinger’ and he’s in the “[Bad Boy] Hoodoo Brown” video. He was out guy for about two years. He was really good. We really liked him. Really cool guy — he moved here from Brazil. The same thing kind of happened to him. He cut his hair [laughs] and kind of lost interest in playing music altogether. So after Luca left and there’s been quite a bit of incest between my band and a couple of bands up in the Northern California area. We had a guy named Eddie play bass with us who was in a bunch of bands up there, a couple of other bands Colton was in. Luca was in a couple of other bands up there. Like everyone has kind of played with everyone because the scene is pretty small.
So after Luca left, we were looking for a bass player and Colton came down and played a show and he was like, ‘Hey man, this is the funnest band that I’ve ever been in. I really like you all.’ He had moved to [Las] Vegas at this point. That’s right. He lives in Vegas now. He said, ‘If we can make the distance work, I want to rejoin you all formally and officially.’ He said, ‘I’ll drive to LA for rehearsals, and photo shoots and stuff.’ He’s always kind of been our preferred guy. We get along with him. He’s an awesome bass player. He’s got the chemistry. He has it all. We were pretty thrilled that he wanted to make it work so we were like, ‘Yeah man, we’ll do anything it takes to get you to be able to be in this band and make it work.’ Yeah, he made it happen and he was driving to LA for all kinds of stuff — rehearsals, and photo shoots and stuff, and he is still officially the guy!
Leather Duchess‘ “Bad Boy Hoodoo Brown” video (from Gunslinger album):
Sleaze Roxx: Cool! Now, in terms of your voice, you have a very distinctive voice but it seems that you have multiple vocal styles that you can use.
Tyler Heath: Yeah.
Sleaze Roxx: So how did that come about? How did you start singing and how come you have so many different facets to your voice?
Tyler Heath: I think that just comes from me trying to rip off as many of my favourite singers as I can.
Sleaze Roxx: [Laughs]
Tyler Heath: Yeah, that’s interesting. When I first started singing and tried to sing in that high Jason McMaster register, I had two gears and that was it. I could either sing down in the chest register or up in the head register, and you had to pick a lane. There was no mid-range and over time, a couple of other voices have come out and a couple of other areas in the voice that I can comfortably sing, and it’s blended a little bit better — still not as good as I would like it to be and I am constantly trying to improve it. And I don’t know if you know, but I have put out a country record. I do some solo stuff that’s more on the country side. When I started really trying to sing that stuff, paying attention to that and trying to develop that part of my voice, some other areas of my voice singing the hard rock stuff kind of came out, because I had strengthened the lower register a little bit to sing that country stuff. Yeah, it’s been an evolution I suppose.
Sleaze Roxx: Do you actually work on your voice? Like take lessons and stuff like that? Or do exercises or is just all natural type of thing?
Tyler Heath: I do. No [laughs], very little of it is natural. I was pretty bad when I first started. I could always hit those high notes. The range was always in there but I used to be just incredibly uncontrolled, unsupported and I didn’t know how to properly sing that way. I have taken lessons with several vocal coaches over the years. I’m not currently doing that with anyone. I had actually taken lessons with Jason McMaster.
Sleaze Roxx: Right [laughs].
Tyler Heath: I did reach a point where my voice was my instrument and I do try to take care of it. I practice all the time, every day. I try to sing songs that are a little bit out of my reach and try to get better at them. That’s a good way to strengthen comfortable parts of your voice — sing covers and sing songs that are slightly out of your grasp.
Sleaze Roxx: That’s neat.
Tyler Heath: I quit drinking alcohol. I definitely try to take care of it.
Sleaze Roxx: When did you stop drinking alcohol and what made you realize that would help your voice and stuff like that?
Tyler Heath: Ummm, let’s see. I haven’t had a single drop in almost a year. It wasn’t some ceremonial thing or some statement. I really wasn’t drinking that much anyway. You know, I would have a beer or two when I would go out, and then I’d feel like shit the next day, and I was like, ‘Man, I’m paying the price here. I’m not even reaping the rewards. I didn’t get drunk. I didn’t feel a buzz. I’m just hungover [laughs].’
Sleaze Roxx: [Laughs]
Tyler Heath: It’s expensive. I am not benefiting at all from drinking anything. So I was like, ‘I could cut this out altogether.’ Any vocal coach in the world will tell you that’s the worst thing in the world that you can do for your voice so that was another thing. ‘I’m going to treat this as an instrument and take it seriously. I can easily cut that out.’
Sleaze Roxx: Do you find that it’s made an improvement in your voice?
Tyler Heath: Yeah, I think so. I don’t know if that’s simply because I’ve been practising and been trying to improve it but certainly, yeah. The nights when I would drink, the next day, my voice was just shot for a few days. I mean, it dries you out. It’s definitely not conducive to healthy vocal cords. A lot of the singers can make it into their ’50s and ’60s, and are still sounding really good. Almost all of them cut out drinking decades prior to that.
Sleaze Roxx: Let’s go to your albums. You’ve got ‘Gunslinger.’ You’ve got ‘Fatal Moon.’ Both are phenomenal albums.
Tyler Heath: Thanks!
Sleaze Roxx: What’s the difference that you find in the two albums, if any?
Tyler Heath: I think on ‘Fatal Moon’, the songwriting is a little more dynamic. I think that everything evolved a little bit. I think the musicianship was a little bit better. Everyone was kind of better at their part. I feel like my voice was a little better. Marc’s riffing and soloing was certainly more developed. Jake’s drumming was a little tighter. We got better at production. It’s certainly a graduated album in comparison to the first one. When I listen to that first one now, it sounds like a bunch of kids to me in a good way. It sounds like a juvenile first album in the way that ‘Too Fast For Love‘ sounds or any of those first records where it sounds like kids you know. So yeah, I think that we have matured a little bit.
Leather Duchess‘ “White Leather” video (from Fatal Moon album):
Sleaze Roxx: Cool! So it took about four years between the releases of the two albums. I like that you limited your second album to only nine songs. A lot of times, people put on a lot of songs [on an album] and there ends up being a bit of filler but for ‘Fatal Moon’, it seems it’s very focused. How come it took so long to release album number two?
Tyler Heath: [Laughs] Yeah, I think that’s a good question. Well, there was a global pandemic in there. We can explain at least a year on that. We definitely did not intend to take that long. The weeks turned into months and the months turned into years really fast. You look down and you’re like, ‘Holy shit man! It’s been eight months.’ We’d have these meetings with all these goals and timelines and then, we’d look back and we’re like, ‘We haven’t done any of this.’
Sleaze Roxx: [Laughs]
Tyler Heath: Yeah, letting life slip by and not buckling down and getting it done. After we finished ‘Fatal Moon’, we all sat down and said, ‘We will not let our third album take that long [laughs].’ Your career is going to pass you by if you’re taking four years to put out an album. Regarding the number of songs, we actually sat down and said, ‘We want to write this album with vinyl LPs in mind.’ It was written to put on vinyl. That’s why we left it at nine songs. We kind of wanted to revert back to the old ’70s LPs that were just eight songs. Like you know, a lot of [Led] Zeppelin records were eight songs, KISS records, stuff like that. That used to be the standard.
Sleaze Roxx: You’re right about that. Speaking of scene, are you guys still based in LA?
Tyler Heath: Ummm. I mean, on paper, officially yes but we’re really spread out at this point. I still live here. I am actually the only one that still lives in LA proper. Jake lives down in a town called Crestline [about 1.5 hours away driving wise from Los Angeles]. It’s up in the mountains. It’s a little mountain top. As I said, earlier, Colton lives in Las Vegas [about 4.25 hours away driving wise from Los Angeles]. Marc moved to Houston [Texas] last August [about 22.5 hours away driving wise from Los Angeles].
Sleaze Roxx: Oooh! How does that impact the band? All of you guys are quite spread out at this point?
Tyler Heath: I know… Luckily, we’re in the era where writing really isn’t hindered because you can send files back and forth so easily and a lot of bands that I know are spread out like that. Luckily, we’re kind of in an era where you can kind of do it. It’s certainly difficult in that we don’t rehearse as much as we probably should. We’re not seeing each other as much as we would like to but we make it work. It’s funny. We’ve written more since Marc moved away. I lived with him prior to that for a year and we really didn’t write anything when we were living together. Until he moved away when all of a sudden [laughs], now we’re super productive.
Sleaze Roxx: Maybe that’s the key then. A little distance helps.
Tyler Heath. Right! No, I think there is something to that. Maybe too close to the source….
Sleaze Roxx: Do you ever get tired of the Jason McMaster comparisons?
Tyler Heath: No, I love it [laughs]. No, I’m just kidding. No, I don’t get tired of it. I [laughs] spent years trying as hard as I could possibly could to sound like him so when I see the comparisons [laughs], it’s kind of like, ‘Well, you made it! You’ve achieved your goal!’ I remember when I first heard that Dangerous Toys album, I just thought he sounded so cool and I was like, ‘Man, this is the coolest vocalist that I have ever heard. I want to sound like that so bad! Anything to sound like him! Even half like that! I used to lock myself in our rehearsal room and I would sing the break down to “Gimme No Lip” off ‘Hellacious Acres’ That kind of call and response thing with the guitar. He kind of goes through the whole range of motion there and I would sing that over, and over, and over until my voice is gone trying to get that tone and grit. So no, I think he’s a phenomenal vocalist. I think he’s a musician and ambassador for heavy metal and rock. He’s the definition of ‘lifer’ and he’s put out so many great albums and he’s done so many projects, and he’s an admirable guy in every sense of the word.
Sleaze Roxx: How did you end up working with him in terms of getting vocal lessons and stuff like that?
Tyler Heath: I had a friend who lived in Austin [Texas] years ago and he reached out to me on Facebook. His name is Quentin. He said, ‘I see that you are a big Dangerous Toys fan.’ I said, ‘Oh yeah man! They’re one of my favorite bands.’ He said, ‘I’ve actually taken lessons with him. He teaches here at this music school in Austin.’ And at this point, Jason was just this legendary demi-God. I was like, ‘Oh my God! You know him?’ He was like, ‘Yeah. I can give you his e-mail address if you want.’ And I was like [laughs], ‘Dude! Yes, please.’ So I just sent him an e-mail out of the blue and said, ‘Hey man, I’m a huge admirer of you. I was told you do voice lessons. If you want to try lessons over Skype, I’de be willing to do it.’ He fired back and said, ‘Hey man, I’ve never done that. I’d be willing to try. I know a lot of other vocal coaches are doing that now. It would have been in 2015 and a little before video chatting took over the world. It was certainly a thing by then. He said, ‘I’m willing to try it’ so we both got it set up. It worked. For several months, it was once a week. He would tell me to choose a song and we would work on that song. I wasn’t allowed to choose any Dangerous Toys songs [laughs].
Sleaze Roxx: [Laughs]
Tyler Heath: He was like, ‘No Toys!’ So I would choose Nazareth, stuff like that, and anything up that alley.
Leather Duchess performing “Teas’n Pleas’n” with Jason McMaster at The Dirty Dog in Austin, Texas, USA in May 2019:
Sleaze Roxx: That’s cool! One thing that I find sets your band apart from other bands is the packaging, the album covers and everything that you have for your records. Obviously, it must be a conscious decision so tell me about that and how that developed?
Tyler Heath: Yeah, thank you! It’s a very conscious decision. I am a huge record collector and merch collector myself. I just eat, breathe and sleep that stuff. And I love album art. I just love staring at my favorite album covers. And I love all the stuff that bands used to put out in a periphery like the promo posters that would be in record shops. All that cool stuff that just came along with rock and heavy metal culture. And unfortunately, a lot of that is lost today both because bands kind of quit putting an emphasis on it and we don’t have the budgets we used to do that. So we’ve always tried really, really hard to bring that back and put an emphasis on the aesthetics / art work because it really is part of the whole package. It’s part of your product. It’s part of your craft. It just comes from a love of it. I have my favorite albums and favorite album covers that I just worship. I’ve always tried to bring that element into my own bands. I love bands that have continuity. Iron Maiden are obviously the most famous. They had the mascot but Dangerous Toys too where they have a reoccurring mascot on each album cover. So I have always wanted to have that element in the band, where there’s that same mascot on every cover and there’s a sense of continuity with the art. It really does sell itself once you see it. I think us putting such an emphasis on the album art and the packing has really helped sell our stuff. These YouTube vinyl channels will review our record and say, ‘This thing looks so good! You guys go to get it!’ Twelve people in the comments will say. ‘I just ordered it!’ Well, that’s the magic at work there.
Sleaze Roxx: No, for sure. Without dating myself, I grew up in the ’80s when hard rock and heavy metal were quite mainstream and very popular.
Tyler Heath: Right.
Sleaze Roxx: I’m assuming that you did not grow up in the ’80s so how did you discover hard rock / heavy metal so how come it’s such a big part of your life because right now it’s really not mainstream at all?
Tyler Heath: Not at all. No. You would be correct. I did miss the ’80s. I was born in 1990. Yeah, I don’t remember the ’80s. I started getting into hard rock and heavy metal — I was pretty late as far as discovering it. All of my bandmates were watching KISS videos and Mötley Crüe when they were five or six years old because their parents got them into it. My parents really aren’t into that stuff. I was kind of my own when discovering it. I was probably 18 or 19 when I really dove into that stuff. It was all the obvious ones at first — Guns N’ Roses of course, Skid Row. I remember being so fascinated with this because my generation didn’t have anything like that and it was just this entire world, which was so cool! At that point, all that stuff was classic rock. You could hear some of that on the classic rock stations. And yeah, so I started diving into and started falling in love with it basically because I had never seen anything like it before. Like I said, my generation which was mostly rap or — I don’t know what was going on in the rock world but it really wasn’t hear metal or glam rock. Yeah, I was just infatuated with it ’cause it was like nothing that I had seen before. There was such a cool factor to it and the music was so good, and the bands looked so cool. Again, the artwork was amazing. It had everything, which was so intriguing.
Sleaze Roxx: Obviously, it’s very difficult making a living as a musician in this day and age, playing hair metal and stuff like that. So what keeps you guys going because I don’t think it’s the monetary rewards?
Tyler Heath: [Laughs]
Sleaze Roxx: So what keeps you going with your passion?
Tyler Heath: We absolutely do not do it for the money. I can tell you that. Yup. It is tough! It’s always been tough to make a living as a musician. It’s certainly more difficult now to make it playing the style of music that we are. Yeah, it’s nothing but a devout love for it. We all love it. Obviously, we could all probably get more mainstream success if we played a different style but we’re not really interested in that. I remember Jason McMaster saying in an interview one time — he was talking about us — ‘Yeah man, they’re doing that style. They’re not going to let anyone tell them that they can’t.’ It’s kind of true. Just like, yeah, it’s what we want to do. Some people laugh at it. We’ve heard all the shit talk — ‘Stop bringing back the ’80s.’ ‘That stuff died for a reason.’ We’ve been called third rate Guns N’ Roses and all that shit. It’s what we like. We love this stuff. Interestingly enough, we didn’t set out to emulate that style, at leasts consciously at the beginning. it’s kind of like, we’re writing songs and this is what is coming out. That’s what rock n’ roll sounds like to us. It’s certainly more deliberate now but in the beginning, it really wasn’t. It was, ‘This is what our band sounds like.’ It was a pretty natural thing at the beginning.
Leather Duchess‘ “Instagram Famous” video — “Tyler, Marc and Jake face the harsh realities of their fame and fortune as they live beyond their means.”
Sleaze Roxx: Given that you are a country artist as well, what’s your favorite? Hair metal or country? What’s your favorite style of music?
Tyler Heath: Oh man! That’s a tough question! I was actually into country way before I was into metal and rock. That’s pretty much all I listened to as a teen — classic country from the ’60s and ’70s. I don’t know that I have a favorite. They both speak to me in different ways. I love hair metal for its ridiculousness and just how over the top it is. it’s just like this bombastic flamboyant thing. Country is kind of the opposite of that. It’s rich story telling. It’s good songwriting. It’s kind of a very rootsy art form — at least the country that I listen to — that I am talking about.
Sleaze Roxx: Do you play country shows? Do you play shows as a country artist as well?
Tyler Heath: Yeah, I do. I play small acoustic stuff. I’ve got a little band that I jam with — country guys. I haven’t in a while. It’s been a couple of months since I’ve done anything. I’d like to start playing a little bit more. But yeah, I’ve played a few small acoustic gigs.
Tyler Heath‘s “The Sage of The Sound Waves” country single:
Tyler Heath‘s “Don’t Change” video:
Sleaze Roxx: How did you guys come up with your band name Leather Duchess? Which is a cool name by the way!
Tyler Heath: Thank you! That was the name of my band in Oklahoma. It was a different group of guys. Originally, the guys that I was with in Oklahoma, it was a very confused line-up of guys [laughs]. Classic identity crisis where everyone wanted something different. Originally, the drummer and another guy wanted it to be a ska band. They were going to have horns and stuff. They brought me in and I was like, ‘I’m not into ska. If I do this, it’s not going to be a ska band.’ But at that point, there was still another guy. There was another guy who played the trombone. We were talking about band name ideas and they all had “leather” in the title and I wanted some kind of duality of rock n’ roll and royalty. The trombone player said, ‘How about Leather Duchess and The — and I can’t remember what the end was but you know, how ska names always have the “The whatever” at the end. It was that and I said, ‘If you just cut out the end and make it Leather Duchess, it’s perfect!’ So we ran with that and that was the name of my band in Oklahoma. When I loved to LA, I said, ‘Hey guys, I’ve got a logo and band name. Obviously, that band is done. We’re not doing anything with it. If you all like it, we can just use that.’ And they all liked it the name so we just continued on.
Sleaze Roxx: Cool! So what’s next on the horizon for Leather Duchess?
Tyler Heath: We are working on the third album right now. Like I said, we are committed to not letting it take four years to release. We’ve got several songs written. It’s coming together. We are trying to do a tour in August and then last year, we did a little festival called Leather Fest. We’re doing that again. That’s going to be in September and hopefully with a few more bands on the bill.
Sleaze Roxx: Where is that being held?
Tyler Heath: That will be in North Hollywood.
Sleaze Roxx: In terms of your tour in August, what cities or towns are you thinking of hitting?
Tyler Heath: I have not seen the itinerary. This is something that Jake is setting up. I know that there are several stops through the mid-west and the east coast. So it will be a mid-west / east coast tour trying to spread our wings and get to that part of the country.
Sleaze Roxx: That sounds cool! Not to put any pressure on you but if everything went well, when could we expect to have album number three come out?
Tyler Heath: Oh man! Well, we drew out a timeline and we all committed to sticking with it so we’re trying to get it recorded probably right after the tour. I think we’re going to lay everything down and then, a couple of months to get everything sent out to the manufacturer and whatnot. Early next year I think, we’ll be ready to ship out.
Sleaze Roxx: That sounds great! Is there anything that you want to add that we haven’t covered yet?
Tyler Heath: Ummm. Trying to think. I think that’s about it.
