GANGS OF OLD LADIES Announce Second Vocalist & Guest Vocalists

Share This:

International metal warriors Gangs Of Old Ladies have welcomed a new member with Diletta Luna (The Moon Witch) joining the band as second vocalist.

Diletta joins existing members Jekyll Jones, Simon Unknowne, David Andersson (Soilwork/NFO) and Rick Rozz (Left to Die, ex Death/Massacre), bringing another dynamic to the band’s existing sonic assault.

Gangs Of Old Ladies have earnt the respect of some of the world’s leading metal identities, with members of Sepultura, King Parrot, FleshGod Apocalypse, Bolt Thrower, Nile, Psycroptic, Sacred Reich and Carach Angren all contributing to past songs, while their most recent single Disease Of The Undead featured guest appearances by an all-star zombie cast including Chuck Billy (Testament) and Gene Hoglan (Dethklok, Dark Angel).

For their next release, and first with Diletta, Gangs Of Old Ladies have enlisted the talents of Dani Filth (Cradle of Filth), Travis Ryan (Cattle Decapitation) and Kris Peters (Heavy Magazine) who all provide guest vocals.

The involvement of Dani Filth is of special significance, with the foundations for what later became Gangs Of Old Ladies formed after Jones met Dani at a Cradle Of Filth concert in his hometown of Brisbane.

Travis Ryan has been in the band’s sights since a pre-covid conversation with the metal vocalist broached the possibility of a future cameo, which he later confirmed live on air after Gangs Of Old Ladies called during one of his podcasts.

A seemingly unlikely choice, Kris Peters was asked to contribute as the band universally agrees that Kris’ contribution to metal through his work at HEAVY is deserving of some form of recognition.

The as yet unnamed single sees Gangs Of Old Ladies – in particular Jones – expose themselves like never before.

“This song goes back to a darker time when I was lost and lacking coping mechanisms, which led to me spending time in the psychiatric hospital,” Jones revealed. “The message of this track is to reassure anyone who may be struggling – or if you know someone who may be vulnerable – that it is okay to not be okay, and that you are never alone. You may feel isolated, but you are definitely not alone. Even if one in ten thousand people get this message and understand that there’s help and support services available and reach out, then this will be worth reliving the pain of some painful and deeply personal memories”. 

An official release date has yet to be set but when pressed on the upcoming track the band responded by saying “magic takes time”.

Get the gang together, it might be sooner than you think…
