HOLLYWOOD, CA (July 26, 2006) – Every show-date in 2006 is a record release party for 80’s metal legends, WARRANT. Come join “The Down Boys” as they celebrate their first album in almost 10 years. “To me this album picks up where Cherry Pie fell in the lap of that girl that just got off the bus in LA,” explains Jerry Dixon, bassist and founding member. “It even has guitar solos (remember those?). No drum machines, no rock rap, no samples just drums, bass, guitars and vocals. It’s old school Warrant at it’s finest.”

WARRANT’s new release BORN AGAIN [Cleopatra Records], which was produced by famed producer Pat Regan (KISS, Deep Purple, Mr. Big). This is WARRANT’s first new material since 1997 and they are currently performing summer shows in support of the new CD. The first single ‘Bourbon County Line’ is gaining airplay across the states. “We wanted to make a record in the true Warrant fashion,” states Erik Turner, founding member and guitarist. “I think we accomplished that sound again. It sounds like what a Warrant record should sound like.”

The band’s four founding members, Erik Turner (guitar), Jerry Dixon (bass), Joey Allen (lead guitar) and Steven Sweet (drummer) are together for the first time in over a decade. Joining the band is Jaime St. James, formerly of Black N’ Blue produced by Gene Simmons [KISS]. The reformation of these metal heroes has been overwhelmingly positive giving the band inspiration to write new material for the fans.
