Reformed NITRO Taps Producer KANE CHURKO For Comeback Album

The reformed NITRO, featuring guitar virtuoso Michael Angelo Batio, vocalist Jim Gillette and LAMB OF GOD drummer Chris Adler, has tapped producer Kane Churko (OZZY OSBOURNE, DISTURBED, FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH, IN THIS MOMENT, HELLYEAH, PAPA ROACH) to helm the band's comeback album. In addition to producing the disc, Churko will contribute his songwriting talents to the project.

"It's exciting to be part of NITRO's evolution and the opportunity to record a legendary vocalist such as Jim Gillette was not one I wanted to pass up," said Churko. "We've had a lot of fun working on new music together at The Hideout Recording Studio [in Las Vegas]. I really think it's going to please old and new fans alike. With such a phenomenal lineup, it should be evident that NITRO is back and ready to compete with the best of the best."

Joining Batio, Gillette and Adler on the new NITRO album will be bassist and five-time Grammy Award winner Victor Wooten.

A release date for the new NITRO album, currently being recorded, will be announced soon. The band plans to debut a single from the new record, along with a promotional video, in the coming weeks.
