“We are doing a double headliner tour with our longtime friends Metal Church. What a superb power package for all metal fans. I am so excited to hit the stage together with Metal Church and I am very sure that the fans in the United States will be as thrilled as we are!!

We will play all these hits, but we will also have a lot more stuff ready from our latest albums, so fans can expect a nice dose of brand new Doro songs from the both very successful albums ‘Forever Warriors’ and ‘Forever United.’ We will play our new anthem ‘All For Metal’ and ‘Living Life To The Fullest’, which is dedicated to my dear, sadly missed friend Lemmy.”

The title track, ‘Backstage To Heaven’, is another fan favorite of our double album, ‘Forever Warriors, Forever United’, and we had the famous German comedian and musician Helge Schneider in the studio as an exceptional guest, playing a saxophone solo. The following ‘Heartbroken’ has another high-profile guest: Doug Aldrich (Whitesnake, Dio, The Dead Daisies) contributes an impressive guitar solo and the B-side also offers something exclusive: two brand new live recordings from the first part of the ‘Forever Warriors, Forever United’ tour, featuring a crunchy version of ‘Blood, Sweat And Rock ‘N’ Roll’ and an exclusive recording of ‘If I Can’t Have You – No One Will’, along with my duet partner Johan Hegg from Amon Amarth.”

Doro Premieres “It Cuts So Deep” Video

Doro has premiered a new video for her new song “It Cuts So Deep.” This track is from her new album “Forever Warriors, Forever United,” which was released today (August 17).

Doro commented:

“I wrote this together with David Bryant because I love doing ballads with a keyboardist and pianos. And he is renowned! It’s a very sensitive song and I think it’s one of my finest ballads.

“We have toured very intensively over the past few years, gathering so many impressions along the way and meeting so many great people. That really inspired me. The songs and ideas literally flooded our minds and this also didn’t stop in the studio. From over 50 song ideas, we quickly had 14 songs for an album, then suddenly 20 and in the end it was 24.”
