Following amazing reviews of their new album The Screwtape Letters and hitting the top ten in the UK Amazon Heavy Rock Charts, British rock heavyweights Leader of Down – who are the final band of the late great Würzel (Ex Motörhead) – are releasing a new video for the title track from The Screwtape Letters album on May 13th. The album was mixed by long-time Motörhead producer and Grammy winner Cameron Webb and mastered at Abbey Road Studios. The CD comes with a 20-page full-colour booklet and there is also a limited edition delicious RED vinyl, available worldwide through US label Cleopatra Records. It features 10 stellar tracks such as the first single Hitman with special guest Dennis Stratton (ex-Iron Maiden) which peaked at number 2 in the UK iTunes heavy metal chart, the second single Cat’s Eye Night, and now the new single of the title track The Screwtape Letters, which takes no prisoners with the band’s own brand of heavy rock ‘n’ roll.

The new single was heavily influenced by the book of the same name, which was of course written by C.S. Lewis, a story of correspondence between two devils. The book was given to bass player Tim Atkinson by his father when he was a teenager and had always held fascination with him especially as Tim’s father was a priest.
Following on from a successful appearance at the Motörhead weekend in Blackpool, Leader of Down are the main support for Phil Campbell and the Bastard Sons at their O2 Academy Islington show on Wednesday May 18th.
