  LITA FORD PREMIERES NEW SONG FROM 'LIVING LIKE A RUNAWAY'
10th May 2012

lita ford



Lita Ford's new album, 'Living Like A Runaway', will be released June 19th in North America via SPV/Steamhammer. The album will be available in four configurations: a double LP, limited edition CD, standard CD and digital download.

Today Lita is giving the public a chance to hear the first new song from 'Living Like A Runaway'. Noisecreep is hosting an exclusive premiere of the track 'Branded'. Get a first listen by clicking here.

Lita has teamed up with producer Gary Hoey and lyricist Michael Dan Ehmig to work on 'Living Like A Runaway'. Together the team invested a lot of time and effort into this kick ass project:

"We worked on the lyrics intensively to really give the songs a lot of meaning and that special emotional depth. I think that these are some of the best lyrics ever, period."

Lita is referring to numbers such as 'Devil In My Head', 'Hate', and 'The Asylum' which see her bare her soul in a way which she has never done before.

Unlike many albums today, 'Living Like A Runaway' is an album that truly must be heard in its entirety from start to finish.

"Listeners shouldn't pick out individual tracks but listen to the full album," says Lita. "It's a fascinating musical journey, inspired by Pink Floyd's 'Dark Side Of The Moon'. I had seen a documentary about 'Dark Side Of The Moon' and it really motivated me to focus on 'Living Like A Runaway' as a whole journey rather just an individual song."

Coinciding with the album's release, Lita is hitting the road this summer with Def Leppard and Poison on the 'Rock Of Ages Tour'. The dates for the first leg of the tour have been announced and are listed below. More dates are expected to be announced soon.

Following the demise of the Runaways, Lita Ford concentrated on her own career and now looks back on many memorable hits including the chart topping duet with Ozzy Osbourne, 'Close Your Eyes Forever', 'What Do You Know About Love', 'Shot Of Poison', 'Larger Than Life' and 'Kiss Me Deadly'. With the release of 'Living Like A Runaway', expect many more songs to be added to the list of hits.

WACKEN WINTER NIGHTS IS HEAVY METAL WONDERLAND

wacken

Wacken Winter Nights 2018 takes place between February 23rd and 25th 2018 and the great news is that you can now experience a full-on, top class German Metal Festival easily and affordably.

It only takes an hour to fly to Hamburg from London and we've had longer journeys than that within the capital and they were certainly more expensive than the £33 air ticket that just appeared in our 'flights to Wacken Winter Nights' search.

Wacken Winter Nights is organised by the same team who are responsible for the world's greatest Metal festival, Wacken-Open-Air and the 2018 bill includes Skyclad, Orphaned Land, Elvenking, Finntroll, Grave Digger, Aeverium, Comes Vagantes, Coppelius, Corvus Corax, Die Pressgëng, Elvellon, Heimataerde, Hell-O-Matic, Ignis Fatuu, Ingrimm, Irdorath, Johnny Deathshadow, Krayenzeit, Letzte Instanz, Mr Hurley und die Pulveraffen, Pampatut, Pat Razket, Schandmaul, Sündenrausch, The Aberlour's, The Moon And The Nightspirit, Torfrock, Visions Of Atlantis, Vroudenspil, Wind Rose and more.



Besides this rich billing of superb Metal bands, there is so much more to see in the festival area including the medieval market and also the walking acts and jugglers you will meet at the theme worlds, including Robert Blake, three-time World Cup winner of street magic.

Wacken Winter Nights is something not to be missed and you can check out the amazing ticket and accommodation prices right here.

We just priced up the whole four day trip with hotels, flights, shuttles and festival tickets for less than £300 and we don't think you will get a better value festival than that, anywhere.

MetalTalk recently sat down with Wacken founder and owner Thomas Jensen and that interview will be online next week and it's a fascinating insight into how Wacken originated from nothing to become the world's premiere Heavy Metal event.
