Y&T: New Dave Meniketti Video Interview; Monsters of Rock Footage Available

Eddie Trunk, co-host of VH1 Classic's "That Metal Show", conducted an interview with Y&T guitarist/vocalist Dave Meniketti during the new metal cruise Monsters Of Rock - The Voyage, which set sail on February 25th. You can now watch the chat below.

Y&T last year announced the addition of bassist Brad Lang to the group's ranks.

The band's current lineup is rounded out by guitarist John Nymann and longtime drummer Mike Vanderhule.

Y&T's first studio album in 13 years, "Facemelter", was released in Europe on May 21st, 2010 via Frontiers Records. As the title indicates, the CD is a hard-rockin', song-oriented album that lives up to its name: it captures the band's raw energy and tightness that they've become known for. Featuring heavy grooves, powerful guitars, and strong melodies, the band shows their versatility, delivering a range of high-energy rockers, mid-tempo head-bangers, modern rock grooves, majestic ballads, and signature Y&T rock anthems. To mark the return, the band engaged John Taylor Dismukes — the same artist who designed covers for Y&T's classic albums "Mean Streak", "Black Tiger" and "In Rock We Trust" - to create the amazing art of the new "Facemelter".
