2018 was an exciting year for Doro, releasing two successful albums at the same time. “Forever Warriors, Forever United” went straight to #1 in the German vinyl charts as well as to #4 of the German album charts, marking the highest ever entry in her home country.
Doro has now announced to release the 4-track vinyl EP “Backstage To Heaven” on March 8th – on the same day the second leg of her worldtour kicks off! The EP will feature two album tracks, as well as two unreleased, new live tracks.
I wish you all a happy new year, it will surely become a rocking 2019! I’m really looking forward to the upcoming European tour in March and therefore we come up with something very special: We will have a new single out as a beautiful, coloured 10inch vinyl. The title track ‘Backstage To Heaven’ is another fan favorite of our double album “Forever Warriors / Forever United” and we had the famous German comedian and musician Helge Schneider in the studio as an exceptional guest, playing a saxophone solo. The following “Heartbroken” has another high profile guest: Doug Aldrich (Whitesnake, Dio, The Dead Daisies a.o.) contributes an impressive guitar solo and the B-side also offers something exclusive: two brand new live recordings from the first part of the “Forever Warriors / Forever United” tour, featuring a crunchy version of “Blood, Sweat And Rock’n’Roll” and an exclusive recording of “If I Can’t Have You No One Will”, along with my duet partner Johan Hegg from Amon Amarth.
