Time for the next edition of Metal Anarchy’s “new music showcase,” the feature where I introduce you to up and coming bands that readers of this site may find interesting. This time I have an exclusive Q&A with Brazilian hard rock band LeatherJacks.
METAL ANARCHY: Tell me a little about your band:
LEATHERJACKS: The band started out by me, Mauro Cordeiro, in 2016, with the intention to write huge and amazing songs! It all started with “Burning Wire” song. Then the another songs started appearing and coming out.
METAL ANARCHY: Who are your main influences?
LEATHERJACKS: I love, really love Dio, Maiden, Whitesnake, Gotthard, Halestorm, Judas Priest, Helloween, Motorhead, and lots of other things and genres.
METAL ANARCHY: What is your latest release and why should readers of this site check it out?
LEATHERJACKS: “Persona Non Grata” is our latest single. I think everyone identifies with Heavy Metal, plus everyone hates wars and conflicts, and this song is about that: Stop Wars. Really worth a listen and headbang too!
METAL ANARCHY: What can people expect when they go to your live shows?
LEATHERJACKS: Fun, Hard Rock, Metal, beers, girls, great lyrics and songs, and a Freakin’ Rock show.
METAL ANARCHY: Where do you see your band heading in 5 years?
LEATHERJACKS: I see ourselves heading places like PinkPop Festival, Wacken, Rock In Rio, Download Festival, etc… Huge dream! Hope we can reach it much before 5 years from now!
