GOTTHARD Guitarist Leo Leoni Forms CORELEONI

Artist: 

Frontiers Music Srl is thrilled to announce the signing of CoreLeoni, who will release a very special album in February 2018. 

Who is CoreLeoni you ask? It is a project founded by none other than GOTTHARD guitarist and founder Leo Leoni to pay a very personal tribute to his ROCK & ROLL past!

In Leo's words, "On the 25th anniversary of the release of the first GOTTHARD album, I wanted to pay tribute to songs like: DOWNTOWN, FIREDANCE, HIGHER, HERE COMES THE HEAT, IN THE NAME, RIDE ON…., LET IT BE, and ALL I CARE 4. Songs that with Gotthard we have kind of left aside. We've re-recorded, refreshed, and "re-brushed" them in a respectful way. These songs are very dear to me and they are part of a period that will remain forever with me."

Joining CoreLeoni on this release:

Ronnie Romero (Lords Of Black, Rainbow): vocals
Hena Habegger : drums
Jgor Gianola : guitar
Mila Merker : bass

Leo Leoni dusted these songs off and brough a new life to these overlooked masterpieces from his past. The album will also include a new song, “Walk On Water", which will be released in December.

"This CoreLeoni project made me feel so many emotions and memories, filling my heart with joy. I hope hearing these new versions gives all the Gotthard fans, especially the ones who knew and loved the band in the early days, the same great emotions that it has brought to me," concludes Leo.

The band will also appear live in Switzerland for the following shows:

21.12. Temus, Agno
22.12. Musigburg, Aarburg 
23.12. Harley Heaven, Dietikon
30.12. Piazza, Lugano – Radiofestival

Stay tuned for more news and more shows!

In episode 60 of One On One with Mitch Lafon, Mitch is joined by guitar-hero Leo Leoni of GOTTHARD. Formed in 1992, Gotthard have achieved great success in South America, Asia, Australia, Europe (scoring 11 consecutive #1 albums in Switzerland). However, North American success has eluded this veteran band. Guitarist Leoni and Mitch explore this question as well as discuss the band's new album Bang!, the untimely death of (lead singer) Steve Lee, new vocalist Nic Maeder, Leoni's restaurant GROTTHARD, musical influences and much more.

Co-hosting with Mitch this week is MATT BRADSHAW of Australian band, Dressed To Chill. The band appears on the A World With Heroes KISS tribute and Matt can be found further on the A World With Heroes follow-up EP. Matt also knows Gotthard singer, Nic Maeder. Dressed To Chill is currently in studio recording an all acoustic KISS covers album.
