Ex-METAL CHURCH Singer RONNY MUNROE Talks About His New LILLIAN AXE Gig

Former METAL CHURCH and current LILLIAN AXE singer Ronny Munroe was interviewed on last night's (Monday, June 28) edition of "The Big Rock Show" with host Tina Peek. You can now listen to the chat using the audio player below.

As of August 1, 2010, Ronny Munroe will join Louisiana rockers LILLIAN AXE as a full-time member, replacing departing singer Derrick LeFevre.

The members of LILLIAN AXE wish Derrick LeFevre nothing but the best of luck in his future endeavors. Unfortunately, Derrick could not commit to the rigorous touring schedule that LILLIAN AXE prides itself on to this day.

When Ronny Munroe takes the stage, he has the crowd's attention. His unique vocal style sets him apart from other singers because he brings something extraordinary to every song.

Ronny is an in-your-face performer, consummate professional, innovative lyricist and songwriter who fuses melody with hard hitting rock in a way that will take your breath away.

LILLIAN AXE founder and guitarist Steve Blaze says, "We met Ronny in Seattle playing a show together two years ago. My first impression was 'Damn, he's tall!' After watching him perform, I thought to myself how amazing a vocalist and presence he was.

"I always keep in the back of my mind great talents when I see them, and Ronny was one of those guys.

"During the three days we spent together in New Orleans rehearsing and getting to know each other, I was amazed how well he fit in as a human being as well as a bandmate.

"The true talent is only half the game; the person is the other. Ronny has it all.

"Having Ronny as a writing partner and performing partner is something I am very much looking forward to!”

Bassist Eric Morris agrees: "I am looking forward to what a vocalist like Ronny can bring to the table. I think he will add a whole new element and catapult our music into a brand new fan base as well as satisfy the die-hards."
