"It's been already almost four years since "The Revivalry - A Tribute To Running Wild" hit the light.

The new and currently untitled tribute will contain songs from "The Rivalry" (1998), "Victory" (2000), "The Brotherhood" (2002) and "Rogues En Vogue" (2005). It will be released in fall of this year with graphic art done by Costin Chioreanu, who has worked for bands like Absu, Centinex, Demonical, Negura Bunget, Thunderstorm, and more. One of the first confirmed bands for the new tribute is Polish heavy metal band Crystal Viper, who will record their own version of "Libertalia." Other confirmed bands are Magica, Orden Ogan, Satanochio, Skiltron, and Thunderstorm.
