Doro Pesch has announced that she’ll release a new studio album later this year.

The as-yet-untitled record will launch on August 3 via Nuclear Blast – just a week before her appearance at this year’s Bloodstock festival in the UK.

The former Warlock vocalist says: “The writing process of the album is complete and we’re currently finalising the mixing.

“This new record is going to be a diverse album with many fast songs and countless metal anthems. To be honest, I believe that one of these songs could become the next All We Are!”

Doro adds: “The first song that I wrote for the new album is a song dedicated to Lemmy. It’s called Living Life To The Fullest.”

In addition, Doro has announced a run of live dates, including a string of festival appearances and shows in Germany and Austria. Find further details below. More dates will be added in due course.
