Florida metal legends NASTY SAVAGE have reunited and are planning to record a brand new studio album this summer. Tours will follow the new disc’s release.
NASTY SAVAGE 2016 is:
Nasty Ronnie – Vocals
Fred Dregischan – Bass
David Austin – Guitar
John Mahoney – Guitar
Greg Gall – Drums
Says Austin: “This is very exciting for myself and the rest of the guys involved. The past is the past. We are looking to the future of recording the best record of our lives. Stoked for this! I promise this will kick your asses!”
NASTY SAVAGE played what was billed at the time as the band’s “last concert ever” on May 5, 2012 at the Crowbar in Ybor City, Florida. Fan-filmed video footage of the show can be seen below.
NASTY SAVAGE rose to popularity in the mid-1980s primarily due to lead vocalist “Nasty” Ronnie Galetti’s over-the-top stage performances (in early shows Ronnie would smash television sets over his head). After landing a deal with Metal Blade Records, the band released three full-length albums and an EP between 1985 and 1989. NASTY SAVAGE split up a short time later and played some reunion shows in the late 1990s before officially reforming in late 2002.
NASTY SAVAGE’s “comeback” album, “Psycho Psycho”, was released in Europe in March 2004 through Metal Blade Records. The CD contained 12 songs in total, including a new version of the demo classic “Savage Desire”.
On February 26, NASTY SAVAGE’s self-titled debut album as well as its follow-up effort, “Indulgence”, will be reissued. Both albums will be available on vinyl as well as on digi-CDs. The “Indulgence” CD will feature the four songs of the “Abstract Reality” mini-album as a bonus.
The NASTY SAVAGE vinyls will be released with 400g heavy cardboard spine sleeves (inside out print), 60x60cm artwork posters and 250g inserts.
