David T Chastain: Leather Leone

Original CHASTAIN band reforms! New Cd November 19!!

Guitarist David T. Chastain and vocalist Leather Leone have reformed the original CHASTAIN. David and Leather have been writing material since January and have solidified the tracks for the new Cd. Also back in the saddle is original bassist Mike Skimmerhorn. The drum tracks were recently recorded in Norway by Stian Kristoffersen (Pagan's Mind/Firewind) as original drummer Fred Coury is still touring and a full time member with the band Cinderella.

The Leather fronted CHASTAIN recorded 5 critically acclaimed Cds in the mid to late 80s and 1990:
85- Mystery of Illusion
86- Ruler of the Wasteland
87- The 7th of Never
88- The Voice of the Cult
90- For Those Who Dare

After the For Those Who Dare tour, David and Leather amicably went their separate ways but kept in touch over the years. Leather decided to reenter the 'metal wars' and released the Sledge Leather Project "Imagine Me Alive" Cd in 2012.

Of the newly reformed CHASTAIN David states: "We are trying to write and record music that is expected of us but with some modern twists and turns. We demoed up 20 tracks and it was difficult to leave any of the them off the new Cd. Stian did an amazing job with the drum tracks and his performance is probably the best drumming on any CHASTAIN release to date. Unlike the old days, this time in the studio we have been in no rush. However at this point we are in the home stretch. We just wanted to make sure the music would live up to our past releases."


Sarah Longfield: headed for Uppsala Gitarr Festival Young Talents 2013

Sarah Longfield
Self-taught Sarah Longfield of Wisconsin in the United States early started playing piano but switched to guitar at the age of 12. Since then she has also added vocals, bass, drums and keyboards to her skills. The guitar is still her main instrument, but six strings only lasted a couple of years for Sarah. Via seven-stringed guitar, she plays today at age 21 on a eight stringed guitar.

Sarah Longfield:  This is my entry for the Uppsala International Guitar Festival's Young Talents Guitar Competition. If you like my song "The Great Illusion" please check out the new EP I just released at Sarahshreds.bandcamp.com. Thanks!
