Sanctuary guitarist Lenny Rutledge and new vocalist Joseph Michael speak about the future of the band and 2019 live shows. Moving forward with the project they are protecting and sharing the legacy of late singer Warrel Dane who passed away late in 2017 and are planning to make new music as well.
The band has confirmed two European festival shows this summer and will tour North America in July performing the entire “Refuge Denied” album as Lenny Rutledge explains, “Sanctuary are looking forward to playing two special festival shows in Europe this summer in addition to our commemorative “Refuge Denied” dates in the US where we will perform our classic debut album in full. If you’re an old school Sanctuary fan or a fan of classic metal, you don’t what to miss this run of dates! Joseph Michael (Witherfall) is the new singer of Sanctuary and we will be playing songs from all 3 albums but focusing on the earlier material. Come check out the return of Sanctuary!”
