Warrior announce new EP is on the way
California rockers Warrior featuring guitarist Joe Floyd have announced that a new EP is on the way. The band’s last album dates back to 2004’s The War of Goods and Men.
The following message was posted in part on Killawatts Radio Show‘s Facebook page earlier today (with slight edits):
“Veteran, highly underrated 80’s LA based — traditional heavy metal band, Warrior — best know for their song and album, “Fighting For The Earth“, have announced via their Facebook page, that the band intend to record and release a new EP!
No details as yet as who the line up will be but it seems it will feature past members, involved with the band?
Obviously, ‘main-man’ Joe Floyd would be leading the new project and hopefully, original singer Parrymore McCarty (Warrior / Steve Stevens / Radiation Romeo’s) – will be involved?
The band picked up world-wide recognition, back in 1985 for the song and title track from their debut album, “Fighting For The Earth” — the video being given heavy rotation on video TV channels.
The band has released four albums to date, Fighting For The Earth (1985), Ancient Future (1998), The Code of Life (2001) and The Wars of Goods and Men (2004).
McCarty sang on Fighting For The Earth and Ancient Future, while Rob Rock sang on (The Code Of Life) and Krokus singer Marc Storace handled vocal duties on (The Wars of Gods and Men).
The band recorded a cover of “Neon Knights” for the 2010 Neon Knights – A Tribute to Black Sabbath release on Reality Entertainment, before parting ways with McCarty once again.
McCarty recently launched a new project, “Radiation Romeo’s” in 2014, showing his voice is still got what it takes!”
