Renowned metal guitar virtuoso, Xander Demos (Sabbath Judas Sabbath, XDB) is happy to announce he will contribute a track to the upcoming Queen tribute album, “We Will Rock You.” Xander will record a cover of the Queen classic, “I Want It All.” The album will be released in late 2015 on Versailles Records.
Xander is also being prominently featured on the upcoming Versailles Records release, Guitar Wizards Vol. 3 and 4, expected for early 2015 release. The album will feature some of the biggest names in rock and metal guitar, including current/former lead guitarists from Faith No More, Megadeth, Ozzy Osbourne Band, Kiss, Whitesnake, Guns N Roses, KISS, Poison, Alice Cooper Band, and the great Jeff Healey.
“We’re very excited about Xander’s involvement with this upcoming Queen tribute,” said Xander’s manager, Michael Stover of MTS Management Group. “Xander is a huge Queen fan, and when I approached him about it, he said ‘yes’ before I could even finish my sentence! ‘I Want It All’ is such an iconic Queen song, and we’re thrilled to be given the chance to record it. We’re already in talks with several other well-known rockers to be a part of this track. I don’t want to give any names away yet, but I know everyone will be blown away once we announce them. Stay tuned for more!”
