Mary Zimmer Announces Return To The Stage With "Metal Mary And The Hired Guns"

Wisconsin based vocalist Mary Zimmer (formerly of Luna Mortis) announces her return to the stage this coming Saturday, October 13th 2012 at The Frequency in Madison.

2010 saw the breakup of the Wisconsin metal band Luna Mortis, whose final album "The Absence" was released via Century Media Records. Mary's return to the stage Oct. 13th is her first major live appearance after the dissolution of the act.

Zimmer will be making her solo appearance as "Metal Mary and The Hired Guns" - a special one-time event with a group of established musicians from the Wisconsin rock and metal scenes.

"I am hitting the stage to play with a band for the first time [other than guest appearances] since the breakup of Luna Mortis and I am incredibly excited to be sharing the stage with a group of amazing musicians," states Zimmer. "There will be a lot of first's at this show, including my first time playing in a formalized band with my sister, Emily Zimmer, on lead guitar. It's also the first time I will be playing and singing at the piano for a song or two in a live band setting. I am extremely excited for this event, everyone in this band is at the absolute top of their game musically and while it's a one-time show for us, it's going to be one of the most incredible shows we've ever played."

The Hired Guns are:

Emily Zimmer - Guitar - Freddie Lee Band
Jon Liedtke - Guitar - Face of Ruin/Shroud of Despondency
Jerry Hauppa - Bass - Concentric/Northless
Brian Van Wychen - Drums - Wisfits/ex-Onus

Additionally, a special guest appearance by Grace Meridan of the Chicago band, Candlelit, is planned. Mary and Grace are both members of the international community of professional female singers, Eve's Apple.

Mary can be heard doing classical/operatic background vocals on the upcoming Motionless in White album "Infamous" which is set to release via Fearless records 11/13/12. The album was produced by Jason Suecof who was also responsible for production on the final Luna Mortis record, "The Absence."
