Skol Records presents: CHINAWITE “Run For Cover” - official CD reissue out on September 18, 2020. Limited edtion, 500 copies.
CHINAWITE were formed in 1981 in Sheffield, so in the peak and in the centre of a miracle that became known as NWOBHM - “New Wave Of British Heavy Metal”. Like many other British bands, they debuted with a 7” vinyl single, “Blood On The Streets”, that was released in 1983. Both tracks from the single landed on the Mausoleum Records compilation entitled “Metal Prisoners”, that also came out in 1983. The single helped the band to secure local shows, and led to signing a deal with the infamous Mausoleum Records. Their full length debut album entitled “Run For Cover” came out in 1984, and included 10 hard rockin’ tracks. Except playing several festival dates, CHINAWITE promoted the album as a special guest on the British tour with MAGNUM. The Skol Records reissue includes all tracks from the “Run For Cover” LP, as well as 2 bonus tracks, taken from the debut single.
