Guitarist Kurdt Vanderhoof added:

“We are excited to hit the road in support of ‘Damned If You Do’ and couldn’t be happier to share the stage with the legendary Doro Pesch.”

Doro, who is planning to play “best of” Warlock sets, also commented:

“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.”

Doro To Release “Backstage To Heaven” Vinyl EP

“Backstage To Heaven” Track Listing:

01. “Backstage To Heaven” (feat. Helge Schneider)
02. “Heartbroken” (feat. Doug Aldrich)

B Side:

03. “Blood, Sweat And Rock ‘N’ Roll” (live)
04. “If I Can’t Have You” – No One Will (feat. Johan Hegg) (live)

Doro commented:

“I wish you all a happy new year, it will surely become a rocking 2019. I’m really looking forward to the upcoming European tour in March and therefore we come up with something very special: we will have a new single out as a beautiful, colored 10-inch vinyl.

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.”
