Xander Demos, the incredible metal shred guitarist from the East Coast touring version of Sabbath Judas Sabbath, has released a brand new single from his CJ Snare-mixed (Firehouse) solo CD, “Guitarcadia.” The track, “White Knuckle Driving (WKD)” is being released to radio on February 29, 2012, the same day as the release date of the full CD. Radio promotion will be handled jointly through MTS Management in the US and Cameron Tilbury Publicity worldwide, including European and Asian markets. The single was chosen through a series of posts on Xander’s facebook page, pairing two of his tracks against each other. Each day, the track with the most fan “likes” would move on to face a different track, until the final selection was made.
“From the melodic opening Iron Maiden-esque riff to the scorchingly hot fretwork found throughout to the insanely intense climax at the end, “WKD” is what pure metal masterpieces are made of,” says Michael Stover of MTS Management. “This track is going to put Xander on the map alongside greats like Malmsteen, Vai, and Satriani.” For a radio or review copy of “White Knuckle Driving,” please contact Mr. Stover at email@example.com.
