Leader of Down: New Single – ‘Hitman’

British rock heavyweights Leader of Down, who are the final band of the late great Würzel (Ex Motörhead) recently announced that following the band’s critically acclaimed debut album ‘Cascade into Chaos’ in 2018, they are ready to unleash a second album entitled ‘The Screwtape Letters’ on April 8th 2022. Mixed by long-time Motörhead producer and Grammy winner Cameron Webb and mastered at Abbey Road Studios, the album will be available worldwide through US label Cleopatra Records and will be released on all formats including a special limited edition red vinyl and CD with full colour 20 page booklet, featuring 10 blockbusting tracks with titles such as ‘Cat’s Eye Night’ and ‘Holloway Motel’ that will take no prisoners with their own brand of heavy rock ‘n’ roll.

Leader of Down recently launched the first single and video from the album ‘Hitman’ on 3rd March. The track features special guest and long-term friend, ex Iron Maiden guitarist and member of Lionheart Dennis Stratton. Watch the video above.

“It was a great pleasure to be asked to provide a solo for Hitman and having guested on stage with Leader of Down on a recent UK show it was great to be back with the boys and appear in the video as well” – Dennis Stratton

“We were thrilled to have Dennis play on our first single from the album, we can’t wait for you to hear this new record and get back out on the road.” – Leader of Down
