Following our previous news that IMPELLITTERI are to headline the Busan International Rock Festival in Korea , guitarist Chris Impellitteri has made a further announcement:
Drummer Jon Dette will be joining IMPELLITTERI for the Headlining Shows in South Korea next month!
As we announced a few days ago IMPELLITTERI have agreed to be the Headlining act at the Busan International Rock Festival on Saturday August 9, 2014. The band will also play a show at VHALL in Seoul Korea on Sunday August 10th. The band will then head into the studio to record a brand new Album. Here is a link to the Busan Festival: http://www.rockfestival.co.kr/KOR/Rock/main.asp
Regarding Jon Dette: As many of you know Jon Dette plays with me in the band “ANIMETAL USA” alongside bassist Rudy Sarzo and Vocalist Mike Vescera! Jon has also played for the bands Slayer, Iced Earth, and recently toured with Anthrax as a fill in for Charlie. Jon is an absolutely amazing drummer and we are honored to have him join our fold for this adventure.
Also, the great Glen Sobel who has played Drums on all of the past 5 IMPELLITTERI records and tours is currently playing drums for Alice Cooper on the Motley Crue tour and could not join us. So, we will miss Glen and will be in good hands with Jon….
American guitar virtuoso Chris Impellitteri has made the following announcement:
“Dear Friends, IMPELLITTERI will be Headlining the Busan International Rock Festival in Korea on Saturday August 9th, 2014. We will also do a special show at VHall on Sunday August 10th, 2014 for a limited number of fans.
We are very excited to perform in Korea as it will be our first time in the Country.
IMPELLITTERI will be playing songs from all of our records including ” Answer to the Master”, ” Wicked Maiden”, “Lost in the Rain”, ” Power of Love”, “Rat Race”, ” Ball and Chain”, “Garden of Eden”, and many more!
We are also told by the concert promoter that fans should come early as they are expecting approximately 15,000 to 20,000 people at the show…… It should be great evening of music!…
( I believe Ozzy Osbourne will also be playing in Seoul Korea on the same day at a different venue with Maroon Five (um not too metal.. ha ha) …
See you soon Korea!!”
Guitar virtuoso Chris Impellitteri has announced that his band will record a new album. Check out what Chris had to say below:
Guitarist Chris Impellitteri (IMPELLITTERI, ANIMETAL USA) has checked in with the following:
“I cannot believe Justin Timberlake just one best Pop Rock artist on the American Music Awards. The music industry is completely controlled and manipulated by businessmen and women. Unfortunately, even the metal community is becoming controlled by the few. I can personally tell you guys for years even my own band has been forced into smaller markets due to rejection from the bigger labels, which is sad when we play circles around 90 percent of these lame ass artists.
I guess I truly owe all of our fans a debt of gratitude for standing by Impellitteri and Animetal. We will continue to play great music and fight this lame ass music industry!”
