Sledge Leather Launches Kickstarter Campaign For New Album

Los Angeles/San Francisco based Sledge Leather has begun writing material for a second full-length release, scheduled for 2013. Leather Leone and Sandy Sledge have already written four new tracks out of the nine new songs scheduled for the untitled concept release.

To expedite releasing new material, Sledge Leather started a Kickstarter fundraiser campaign on November 6th to help complete production for the release. The campaign will run through December 18th and offers fans an opportunity to purchase items: pledges include classic releases long out of print, new material, and Leather’s classic leather jacket dating back to the Rude Girl and her time before Chastain.

The Kickstarter campaign can be found here. The following press release was also issued about the band:

"Sledge Leather was embraced by media and radio contacts everywhere with impressive sales for 'Imagine Me Alive' CD and DVD releases. The Sledge Leather debut engulfs the listener in an onslaught of heavy metal that resurrects a classic HEAVY metal sound with Dio's former band members Scott Warren (keyboards), and Jimmy Bain (bass), who both return for the new release.

"Before 'Imagine Me Alive' it had been more than two decades since we embraced new material from Leather Leone (Chastain, Rude Girl, Malibu Barbi) and drummer Sandy Sledge (Rude Girl, Malibu Barbi, Warbride) in their new project Sledge Leather."

Sledge explains “Imagine Me Alive shows the different ways that Leather’s voice can create music.” Leather adds, “This new record will kick that in the a** and take us further.”
