ROSS THE BOSS to Release BY BLOOD SWORN on April 20th; 2018 USA Tour Dates
ROSS THE BOSS ANNOUNCES NEW RECORD “BY BLOOD SWORN” AND WORLD TOUR DATES
Guitarist Ross the Boss’ stature in the history of hard rock and heavy metal has been well-solidified for decades by this point - with a resume including some of the most influential and hardest-hitting bands of all-time, particularly both the Dictators and Manowar. And he continues to rock - with upcoming dates throughout March serving as a preview of his forthcoming solo release, ‘By Blood Sworn’ (the Dean Rispler-produced album drops April 20th in Europe, via AFM/Soulfood Records).
“Ross the Boss Band will rip through the US and Canada like a hot knife thru butter!” exclaims one of metal’s all-time great guitarists. “Metal fans in the US and Canada come see and hear what Europe knows to be true…the Ross the Boss Band rules!!”
Kicking off on Wednesday, March 7th in Sellersville, Pennsylvania, the trek will run through Sunday, March 24th, where it wraps up in Darlen, Illinois. With a touring band comprised of Ross plus Marc Lopes on vocals and keys, Mike LePond on bass, and new drummer Steve Bolognese (Lance Barnewold supplied drums for the album’s recording), all shows will focus on very best Manowar tunes (from the group’s first six albums - widely considered their “golden era” by metalheads worldwide). Be sure to check out this worldwide tour trailer, which packs quite a wallop:including a few audio clips from the upcoming new record.
Ross the Boss was one of the pioneers of both punk rock and heavy metal. He's proud to know that the music he's made has influenced and inspired so many other artists. You can be sure that whatever band he's in or whatever style he's playing in, he's always happy to be writing new music and playing the guitar with his friends.
And soon, North American , Australian and European fans will be able experience Ross’ immense guitar legacy on a concert stage!
