ELEGANT WEAPONS, FEATURING JUDAS PRIEST’S RICHIE FAULKNER, UNLEASH NEW SINGLE/VIDEO “DO OR DIE” FROM THE FORTHCOMING “HORNS FOR A HALO” ALBUM, ANNOUNCE EUROPEAN TOUR DATES
Metal fans are finally getting to hear what the much-talked about new collaboration, Elegant Weapons, sounds like – with the arrival of their latest single, Do or Die. Comprised of Rainbow singer Ronnie Romero, Judas Priest guitarist Richie Faulkner, Uriah Heep bassist Dave Rimmer, and Accept drummer Christopher Williams, Do or Die, is the second single/video off their forthcoming debut full-length, Horns for a Halo, and can be seen below.
“Do or Die is a rip roaring track about taking the opportunity and giving it your all,” explains Faulkner. “Take the shot, play the game and do it to the best of your ability. It’s the fastest track on the record and is a blast to play.”
The band’s first single/video, Blind Leading the Blind, can be viewed here.
Elegant Weapons’ debut full-length, Horns for a Halo (produced by Faulkner’s Priest bandmate, Andy Sneap and featuring album performances by Pantera’s Rex Brown and Judas Priest’s Scott Travis), will be out May 26th via Nuclear Blast Records, and can already be pre-ordered, here.
Lastly, Elegant Weapons will also soon be hitting the road in Europe beginning in June and running through July, which will include performances with Pantera, festival appearances, and also headlining their own shows. Tickets to the shows can be purchased via this link.
“We are very much looking forward to touring and our first tour dates are taking place in Europe starting in June 2023. Fans can expect heavy songs with catchy melodies, great vocals and lots of riffs, We all live to play live, and can’t wait to take the Elegant Weapons out onto the live stage.”
