Oh, this news makes me so happy, as a Runaways devotee.
Legendary female metal icon Lita Ford has confirmed the release date for her new album Living Like a Runaway. The album will be released June 19 in North America via SPV/Steamhammer. The album will be available in four configurations: a double LP, limited edition CD, standard CD and digital download.
"This CD is truly a dream come true. It took me one year to write this CD along with Producer Gary Hoey and song writing Partner Michael Dan Ehmig. We have dumped out hearts and souls into this amazing CD. Along with a lot of tears, pain, heartache, laughter, ripping out hair, going hungry, losing sleep and a lot of frequent flyer miles," Ford said in a statement. Sounds like good times were had, right?
She continued, "Living Like a Runaway is like being able to walk through fire and coming out the other side unscathed."
Coinciding with the album's release, Lita is hitting the road this summer with Def Leppard and Poison on the "Rock of Ages Tour." The dates for the first leg of the tour have been announced and are listed below. More dates are expected to be announced soon.
The singer is looking forward to the tour and getting to play the new songs live, saying, "We are honored with this awesome tour and being able to play with these brilliant musicians. So strap in tight, it's going to be one powerful journey."
