Leatherwolf Part Ways With Guitarist Geoff Gayer

Southern California metal band LEATHERWOLF have parted ways with guitarist Geoff Gayer. As a result, the group's European tour had to be cut short by one date.

Commented the group: "First of all, we would like to apologize to the Rock House crew in Pescara, Italy and all the fans that were looking forward to seeing us live. We were very much looking forward to playing for you all and ending our trip on a high note. Unfortunately, it was not meant to be. Geoff's unacceptable behavior prevented us from carrying on after last night's gig at the Black Horse in Cermenate. We will spare you the details but it was ugly — now we know how the members of UFO must have felt like every time Michael Schenker had one of his 'episodes.'"

"We are on our way back home to Orange County as we speak and will evaluate the situation and go from there. Working with Geoff in his current state is absolutely out of the question yet we are aware that replacing a key member and major creative force will not be easy. Ideally, we'll move on with a local Southern California guitar talent who we can write, rehearse, and gig with on a regular basis and gear up for 2008, which includes playing the Festival de Metal Borocua 5 next May in Puerto Rico."

"Qualified interested parties can contact us via our MySpace page or e-mail us at dean.rob@mac.com (please do not send us any mp3s unless asked!)."
