Los Angeles-born heavy metal icons Alcatrazz unleash the ferocious new single, ‘Don’t Get Mad…Get Even (feat. Girlschool)’, taken from the upcoming album, Take No Prisoners, set for release via Silver Lining Music on May 19th, 2023.
The track sees Alcatrazz collaborating with the legendary Girlschool in a full-force, head-banging fist-pumper.
“’Don’t Get Mad…Get Even’ is a very Thin Lizzy, AC/DC-ish type of tune” says Jimmy Waldo, Alcatrazz’s keyboardist and founding member, “to make it even better we have our friends Girlschool joining us on the chorus, we recorded this during our last European tour when both bands were together, it turned out fantastic!”
“On a day off during the tour, in a hotel room in France, we were suddenly asked to jump in and sing the chorus on a new Alcatrazzsong” adds Girlschool’s drummer Denise Dufort, “Jimmy Waldo had his mobile recording gear on the road, we all got round the microphone, we had fun doing this one, and it’s a really good song, a great hard rock song!”
Alcatrazz are determined to make up for lost time, roaring forwards at warp factor 10 to deliver Take No Prisoners, their sixth studio album and the third in three years. Comprising of ten cracking, charismatic tracks, with each containing the unique fusion of classic American rock with the full grain hard-rocking attitude of British metal, Take No Prisoners sees Alcatrazz
