Red Dragon Cartel

Former Ozzy Osbourne and Badlands guitarist, Jake E. Lee is pleased to announce June 2014 UK tour dates for his new band Red Dragon Cartel. The UK tour follows Red Dragon Cartel’s critically acclaimed, eponymous debut album, released by Frontiers Records on January 27th.

The UK tour includes London’s O2 Academy Islington (June 6), Nottingham Rescue Rooms (June 7), Wolverhampton Slade Rooms (June 8), Glasgow Classic Grand (June 10) and Newcastle O2 Academy 2 (June 11).  Special guests on all UK dates include Syron Vanes and Jupiter Falls.

Red Dragon Cartel will also play Download Festival on Sunday June 15th.

A special 24 hour ticket pre-sale for the Red Dragon Cartel UK tour dates will kick off on Planet Rock from 9am on Thursday January 30th. Tickets will then go on sale to the general public on Friday January 31st via www.seetickets.com or directly from the venues.

The band’s new single “Deceived” will be released in the UK on Monday February 10th.

Jake E. Lee is the former guitarist for Ozzy Osbourne (on the “Bark at the Moon” and “The Ultimate Sins” albums). After a self-imposed exile from the music industry and the public eye since the demise of Badlands in the mid 90s, Jake is now back with an exciting new rock’n’roll band “Red Dragon Cartel”. Their debut eponymous album will be released by Frontiers Records in the UK on Monday January 27th and in North America on Tuesday January 28th, 2014.

The band came about when old friend Ronnie Mancuso helped to coax Jake out of retirement. Ronnie, noted session guitarist/bassist, composer and producer for Beggars & Thieves, was sharing a studio space, “The Hideout” in Las Vegas with super hot producer, engineer and mixer Kevin Churko (Ozzy Osbourne, Five Finger Death Punch, Rob Zombie, Hinder, In This Moment).
