Chicago black metallers Withering Soul have issued the following statement about appearing on a Running Wild tribute album:

"Withering Soul in conjunction with Jens Pohl, Jörn Rüter of Remedy Records and Tim Anders of Pitch Black Productions are proud to announce that Withering Soul will be recording a track on a new tribute album dedicated to Germany’s legendary pirate-themed metal band, Running Wild.

"The album to be entitled 'ReUnation – A Tribute To Running Wild' is set to be released in the fall of 2009 by the well-known Hamburg-based label Remedy Records. The album will be released as a limited 2-CD set for the price of a normal CD.

"Running Wild released their first record 'Gates To Purgatory' in 1984 and has since released twelve additional albums. The band recently announced that this years Wacken Open Air Festival would be the band’s last live performance of their career.

"Commented Jens Pohl, the webmaster for German Metal-Legends Running Wild: 'This album will not be just an ordinary tribute to anyone, this is going to be a farewell gift to one of the most influential bands in Heavy Metal, paying homage to Rock'n'Rolf as a musician and - due to the current situation - to many of his latest songs but not solely. I am really happy, proud and grateful at the same time that this tribute album features some legends as well as some of the most promising and uprising Heavy Rock- and Metal-Acts you should not miss! My deepest appreciation to everyone being involved. Thanks.'"
