ALCATRAZZ, the mighty Los Angelesborn guitardriven heavy metal icons, release the performance video for the track Targettaken from the fulllength V, released October 15th 2021 via Silver Lining Music. The video includes live footage from the outfits 2021 UK tour and captures the raw, fullthrottletakenoprisoners live assault of the band.

Founding member Gary Shea, AKA the man who named Alcatrazz, comments: Footage for this clip was filmed live from our recent UK Tour in England. After a long layoff, it was so cool to be rocking hard with vocal king Doogie White and new boy Larry Paterson killing the drums. We are looking forward to our return to the UK and the upcoming European Tour

Following the release of the fulllength V; ALCATRAZZ, the mighty Los Angelesborn guitardriven heavy metal icons will take their new record to 16 stages across Europe, kicking off at the Golden Age Festival in Belgium. And it’s no rest for the wicked with the band set to bring their electrifying shows to the UK in February 2023, coheadlining with the legendary Girlschool.

Released via Silver Lining Music on 15th October 2021, V is produced by Giles Lavery and Jimmy Waldo, and mixed by Andy Haller (Elton John, Joe Cocker and System of a Down). Both vintage and timeless, V treads the Alcatrazz texturedterritories of old but with renewed vigor and verve. Whether it be the choralechoes sitting inside the storming tempest which is ‘Nightwatch,’ the staunch, speedy melodic metal of ‘Turn Of The Wheel’ or the thick, bluesy chug of ‘House Of Lies,’ there is little doubt that this Alcatrazz is going fulltilt with not one ounce of a shackle holding them back.
V brings us full circle from our original roots to a modern much heavier version of all things Alcatrazz, confirms Shea.
I feel great and I am looking forward to our return to the UK and upcoming European Tour as we continue to work on new music, enjoy the video!

And just in case you’re wondering what V stands for? Alcatrazz’s fifth studio album of course… but it also stands just as resolutely for Victory; the victory that sees Alcatrazz 2021 stronger than ever despite all the odds.
