Band Will Preview Tracks from the New Album on June 29 at Guitar Center in Los Angeles, Performance to Be Streamed on Facebook

“With their third album ‘Once Bitten,’ Great White finally perfected their blend of bluesy grind and hard rock flamboyance.”

-All Music Jack Russell’s Great White will celebrate the 30th anniversary of Great White’s hit album Once Bitten, with a tour and new acoustic album, Once Acoustically Bitten. The acoustic album will be released on July 14 and the band will kick off their U.S. tour on July 6. They will stay on the road through summer and into fall playing songs off their new acoustic release, the multi-platinum Once Bitten album and, on some shows, the entire Once Bitten album from start to finish.

Before the tour kicks off, the band will be previewing material from the upcoming release on June 29th – the original release date for Once Bitten – at Guitar Center in Los Angeles. Fans will be able to watch the entire performance on Facebook live at 7pm PST on the band’s facebook page. A week later they begin the tour in Kansas and will hit cities across the U.S. including Fort Collins, Pasadena, Cincinnati, Los Angeles, and more. Tour dates are all listed below. More dates to be announced shortly.

“The Once Bitten album for me was the album that finally put us in the musical space that I felt the band should be in,” says lead singer Jack Russell. He goes on, “We had been searching prior to that…our first album was kind of similar to Judas Priest and our second album was very keyboard heavy. The Once Bitten album hit and we all just knew this was our area, this was where we should be. This new acoustic record is an homage to thirty years of making music and thirty years since our first, big platinum album. Three decades later and we’re still able to go out there and sing and play for our fans. It’s a blessing.”

In 1984, Great White broke out of the Los Angeles scene with its self-titled debut, followed by seismic platinum selling outings such as 1987’s Once Bitten and 1989’s

Twice Shy. Selling over 10 million copies worldwide, they stood out as tried-and-true rock pioneers. Now, Jack Russell’s Great White moves into the 21st century with a new look that includes Tony Montana (Great White), Robby Lochner (Fight), Dan McNay (Montrose), and Dicki Fliszar (Bruce Dickinson).

Thanks for taking a few seconds to read this. I have been with MTRS since its inception. Love doing the live broadcasts and interviewing my hero's and other very interesting people over the decade of this. MTR is my therapy. Have always looked at this site and station as being part of the solution for the artists. We have NEVER pushed our own agenda, it has always been in the name of the bands, the music and the direction in which we have an influence in helping. We are part of the solution. Its simple! We are here to help bands and entertainers succeed. We go way far beyond of what is expected of a station/PR piece.
