Powerhouse Metallers Leatherwolf returned to the UK last month after a long 28 year absence, with a five-date club tour ending in an intimate surreal night at the Fiddlers Elbow in Camden, London where the Californian five piece blew the roof off the venue with a mind blowing performance.

Famed for their pioneering use of the Triple Axe Attack, the band originally formed in 1981. They split up in 1990, after releasing three powerful albums, 'Endangered Species' from 1985 and 'Leatherwolf' and 'Street Ready' in '89 after the band signed to major label Island in 1987.

Leatherwolf reunited in 1999 and currently feature long standing members, vocalist and guitarist Michael Olivieri and drummer Dean Roberts, along with bassist Patrick Guyton and guitarists Rob Math, plus new member Luke Man who completes the current Triple Axe Attack.

Their last studio album was 'New World Asylum' released in 2007.

Before that explosive show at The Fiddlers Elbow in London, MetalTalk's Mark Taylor sat down in Leatherwolf's chaotic dressing room with Patrick Guyton and Dean Roberts to chat about the UK tour and a whole lot more.

When pressed about any future recording plans, drummer Dean Roberts revealed "Me and Pat have decided that we're gonna finish this record before next summer, we'll see what kind of music it is."

When asked "Is that a hint that it's going to be a different kind of sound?", Roberts explained further "Some of the song writers are not here anymore, so it's going to be different.

“The only ones we've got left from that are myself and Mike, and Pat is a phenomenal bass player, so he's going to add a whole different element to the creativity of the music."
