L.A. GUNS RETEAM WITH ANDY JOHNS FOR NEW ALBUM

L.A. Guns
The Phil Lewis-led L.A. Guns – not to be confused with the Tracii Gunns version – have signed with Cleopatra Records and will begin recording a new album with legendary producer Andy Johns.

In addition to his work with Led Zeppelin, Andy Johns co-produced Van Halen's For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge, Joe Satriani's The Extremist and Chickenfoot's debut. He also produced the last three L.A. Guns albums.

The album will be released on CD and vinyl as well as a digital version with iTunes-exclusive tracks. The band is planning a nine-month world tour to support the album.

The current L.A. Guns lineup is Lewis, Steve Riley, Stacey Blades and Scotty Griffin. "We've been waiting a long time to get back in and record," Lewis says. "Our last album, Tales From the Strip, was incredibly well-received and we're looking forward to putting out something even better! With today's uncertain musical landscape, it's great to have a label like Cleopatra Records behind us. We've been friends with Brian Perera (Cleopatra Records owner and founder) for a long time, and are really looking forward to working together on this and many more projects with him in the future."
