Red Dragon Cartel to tour UK
Former Ozzy Osbourne guitarist Jake E Lee’s new band Red Dragon Cartel will tour the UK ahead of their appearance at this year’s Download festival.
They’ll play five dates in June to support their self-titled debut album, which was released this week.
Red Dragon Cartel consists of Lee, vocalist DJ Smith, bassist Ronnie Mancuso and drummer Jonas Fairley, while the album features a string of big-name guests: Paul Di’Anno (ex-Iron Maiden), Rex Brown (Kill Devil Hill, ex-Pantera), Todd Kearns and Brent Fitz (Slash), Scott Reeder (ex-Kyuss), Maria Brink (In This Moment), Jeremy Spencer (Five Finger Death Punch), Tom Petersson (Cheap Trick) and Sass Jordan (SUN).
Lee, who happily spent the past two decades out of the limelight, recently admitted he’d consider returning to Ozzy’s band, but didn’t think the pair would be able to reach an artistic agreement.
Tour support comes from Syron Vanes and Jupiter Falls, and tickets go on sale this Friday morning.
