JACK RUSSELL'S GREAT WHITE Releases New Single "Hard Habit"
 
New Music Coming This Summer
 
In December 2011, JACK RUSSELL'S GREAT WHITE first bared its teeth. Since its inception, the front man welcomed back longtime bassist and friend Tony Montana-this time as a guitar player and keyboardist-lead guitarist Robby Lochner, bassist Chris Tristam and drummer Dicki Fliszar.  Rather than look backwards and merely attempt to relive the multi-platinum hard rock entity's storied origins, JACK RUSSELL set his sights on the future. 
 
Today the band releases a new song in the style of the bluesy hard rock stomp that made RUSSELL a rock icon in the first place.    The song "Hard Habit" is taken from the band's forthcoming studio album The Gauntlet that is scheduled for release later this year. Today the band has released a lyric video for "Hard Habit," it is available for viewing: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DS5ASLkhUng
The song is also available for purchase as a digital single on iTunes and the song can be streamed via Spotify.
 
JACK RUSSELL on the new song, and the bands plans: "With the ever-changing climate of the music industry, we've decided that we will be releasing several digital singles throughout 2015.  'Hard Habit' is the first in a series of singles the band will put out this year.  Be on the lookout for our next single in the coming months!  We are really proud of this song and we plan on playing it live as well as some other new tunes and of course all the classic JACK RUSSELL'S GREAT WHITE songs you know and love.  See you on the road!"
 
In support of the album the band will be on the road non-stop in 2015.  The first announced dates are listed below.  More dates are being added daily, so be sure to keep up with http://www.jackrussellsgreatwhite.com as dates are added.

THE CREATORS OF 'INSIDE METAL: THE PIONEERS OF LA HARD ROCK AND METAL' DOCUMENTARY FILM SERIES, WHICH FEATURES THE BIGGEST NAMES OF '80S METAL, OFFERS METAL FANS A CHANCE TO BE INCLUDED IN THESE HISTORICAL MOVIES THOUGH FANBACKED

The early '80s metal scene in Los Angeles has become legendary, as it spawned such worldwide headliners as M'tley Cr'e, Ratt, Dokken, W.A.S.P., and originally, Metallica (before the latter relocated to San Francisco). And the new documentary, 'Inside Metal: Pioneers of L.A. Hard Rock & Metal,' chronicles the entire scene.

Directed by Bob Nalbandian and produced by Metalrock Films, 'Inside Metal' features all-new interviews with countless bands and artists that thrived on the scene, and tell its story, first hand. To ensure that this killer documentary receives the attention it deserves, a fundraising campaign has been set up at WWW.METALROCKFILMS.COM - which will help strengthen the film's distribution, marketing and promotion.

This groundbreaking movie features exclusive and candid interviews with members of Metallica (Lars Ulrich), Ratt (Stephen Pearcy), Dokken (Don Dokken), Quiet Riot (Carlos Cavazo), W.A.S.P. (Chris Holmes), Megadeth (David Ellefson), Great White, (Jack Russel), Y&T, (Dave Meniketti), Stryper (Michael Sweet) and Armored Saint (Joey Vera).

'Inside Metal' is about giving fans the real inside story from the behind the scenes world of metal and hard rock with in-depth interviews, ultra-rare concert footage and photographs, and an original music score from that era; in this no-holds-barred, never before seen, recollection of untold stories.
To check out some sneak previews, visit: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XlzWl795u0E

Early feedback has been exceptional, including renowned video director Jonas 'kerlund (who has worked with the likes of Metallica and Ozzy) raving, "This film captures an era that catapulted metal into the spotlight and takes the audience on a wild ride down memory lane. After watching it I wanted to get in my time machine and experience those days for the first time. You're hit with a potent nostalgia, a time I thought we couldn't get back, not until I saw this film. I can't get enough of this shit, what an amazing film to watch over and over again, well done!"

Metalrock Films ask - and want - real and serious metal fans to be a part of this historic documentary and spread the word that this was the scene where it all began, ground zero.  "Our Fanbacked campaign will raise the direly needed financial support to bring this film to one and all in the US and Internationally in order to pay for the marketing and promotion to get it noticed by the general public. We want to bring this film to your theatre, town, bar, club and living room! Unite and support us. We have created some one of a kind opportunities for our friends and fans to participate with us in birth of this film. Get your name on the screen and let the world know that you support metal and the bands that create it. Help us tell the story of the music you love and let the world know you love it. Join in the festivities of our, and your, accomplishments by being at the premiere of the movie and interact with the artist that participated in its creation. Commemorate your participation with a plaque, t-shirt, poster or other limited edition merchandise items that says 'Metal Rules.' Keep checking back as we add more tasty premiums."
