The following message was posted on Mark Slaughter‘s Facebook page about one hour ago:
“So.. I have a HUGE surprise for everyone. The “official” press release isn’t going out until Monday, but I wanted to let you guys in on it first. We have been dropping hints for a while, but it is official. I have signed a deal with EMP Label Group, the record label owned by my good friend David Ellefson of Megadeth, who will release my new solo record HALFWAY THERE on May 26th in the US and Europe!! I’m SO proud of this record, and can’t wait for everyone to hear it!
We have also signed a joint venture with Universal Music Japan International who will release the record with EMP May 10th (JUST in time for the SLAUGHTER tour in Japan)! As if that’s not enough, RIGHT NOW you can pre-order Halfway There on CD and limited edition Vinyl LP (also available in several bundles) from empmerch.com (and get a peek at the amazing artwork by legendary artist Mister-Sam Shearon), and you will get a free immediate download of “Hey You”!!
Also, the first 200 pre-orders will come signed!”
Sleaze Roxx stated the following about Mark Slaughter‘s debut solo album released in May 2015: “Reflections In A Rear View Mirror is exactly what a solo album should be. An artistic expression outside the artist’s regular environment. And, not unlike Tom Keifer‘s recent solo album, Mark manages to successfully explore new musical territory without alienating his band’s fan base. Mark handles all of the music on this album with the only exception being the drums. Knowing this fact makes his solo effort even more impressive. It’s obvious that he has a really good ability to develop memorable melodies and understand good song arrangement. A great musician in his own right, he gets a chance to showcase his talent on guitar, bass, keyboards and even a few unexpected instruments, such as a Native American flute, mandolin and saxophone.”
