||LITA FORD CONFIRMS NEW ALBUM RELEASE DATE AND TOUR WITH DEF LEPPARD AND POISON
21st March 2012
Legendary female Metal icon Lita Ford has confirmed the release date for her new album 'Living Like A Runaway'. The album will be released June 19th in North America via SPV/Steamhammer and will be available in four configurations: a double LP, limited edition CD, standard CD and digital download.
Lita gave an update on 'Living Like A Runaway': "This CD is truly a dream come true. It took me one year to write this CD along with producer Gary Hoey and song writing partner Michael Dan Ehming. We have dumped out hearts and souls into this amazing CD. Along with a lot of tears, pain, heartache, laughter, ripping out hair, going hungry, losing sleep and a lot of frequent flyer miles. 'Living Like A Runaway, is like being able to walk through fire and coming out the other side unscathed."
