Godmother of Metal, Leather Leone posted a video on her social media this morning, November 5th, giving an update of what has been happening outside of Chastain.
Among a brief tour stint in South America, she confirms that she is working on a solo album, her first since the legendary Shock Waves, featuring her loving dedication to her mentor, Ronnie James Dio, “Something In This Life.”
“The music business is fucking fickle,” she says. “I’d love to tell you when it’s coming out. I don’t know, but it’ll be next year, I’m hoping Spring…”
Leone is known as a forthright advocate and mentor, herself, for helping women break the Metal ceiling in the industry and has proven herself as one of the most influential vocal artists since Chastain’s For Those Who Dare in 1990.
