Jake E. Lee's Red Dragon Cartel; New Photos

According to "Tales From The Stage Volume 1" author Michael Toney, Jake E. Lee has set Jake E. Lee's Red Dragon Cartel as the name of his new project, obviously referencing the axeman's Japanese roots. The group features Ronnie Mancuso (Beggars & Thieves) on bass and Jonas Fairley (Black Betty) on drums. The lead vocalist position is almost solidified, but details are still being worked out. The only information that has thus far been provided is that he hails from Canada, and certain logistics need to be ironed out prior to a formal announcement.

In the process of recording his new album at Las Vegas' The Hideout Studios  - owned and operated by Kevin Churko  - Lee's first new release will feature a combination of legendary rock artists and some of the biggest names of new metal. Already recorded are guest appearances by Robin Zander (Cheap Trick), Paul Di'Anno and Maria Brink (In This Moment), with many other big names attached to the project.

Toney says: "The two new tracks that I have heard are very impressive, and are incredibly fresh sounding - but not really in the same family as [Jake's] work with Badlands or Ozzy. It's still hard rock, but perhaps a bit more melodic."

Stay tuned for updates!
