Axe-static news just hit the webs: Our fave Rock God, aka Monte Pittman, announced on his website that he singed with Metal Blade Records to release his next album! Monte spent a few weeks in Copenhagen (back in February) to record new material with Flemming Rasmussen producing it. It’s pretty easy to assume that the new album will melt your face! ;)
Metal Blade Records is pleased to announce the signing of MONTE PITTMAN, the guitarist known for his work with metal legends Prong and the illustrious pop-star Madonna. A release date for the new solo album will be announced shortly so be sure to stay tuned to MetalBlade.com and Monte Pittman’s website or Facebook page for updates.
