Platinum Overdose release new album ‘Covered In Leather’

Steve Philbrook, Matt Thorne, Rick Mead and Lance V. are back to deliver Platinum Overdose’s 4th album in 4 years. 2022 and ‘Covered In Leather’ usher in the year of the cover song for the boys, taking on some of their favorite legendary artists such as Kiss, Scorpions, Bon Jovi, Aerosmith and Sammy Hagar as well as paying homage once again to Lance V.’s first music teacher Todd Kelly of Tuff Luck with the track “Sleaze If You Please”. 

Platinum Overdose dig their teeth in deep on such classics as “Blackout”, “Parasite” and “Heavy Metal” while also enlisting vocalist extraordinaire Paul Shortino to duet with Philbrook on “Lick And A Promise”.  Another highlight on the record is their version of a Bon Jovi demo titled “We Rule The Night” that should delight any fan of 80’s Metal! 

Of course for good measure, the guys couldn’t just leave well enough alone and stop at all covers, they also decided to include a brand new song titled “Can’t Let Go” further building on the foundation they’ve created since releasing their debut album ‘Murder In High Heels’ in 2019. We think any fan of Platinum Overdose will hear the boys firing on all cylinders and for those just coming around to discover their 80’s brand of Metal will surely dig a little deeper into the catalog to find out what web these guys are spinning. The last three tracks on ‘Covered In Leather’ were already released on the previous three albums and the band thought it would be great to include them on this package to have all the cover songs on one disc. Platinum Overdose are very proud to pay tribute to some great artists and present ‘Covered In Leather’ for your listening pleasure. We hope you will enjoy listening to it as much as they enjoyed making it. Crank it up loud and proud….album #5 is already in the works, stay tuned and live Platinum! 

Produced by Lance V., Mixed by Matt Thorne, Mastered by Lance V. in Los Angeles, CA. 

This CD is silver pressed, officially licensed from the band and exclusively available from The DDR Music Group.

This album is available as a full album download through Bandcamp.

lol, it didn't even really click for me that these were cover songs. Sadly, doesn't really change the outcome. I've enjoyed this band's releases so far, but this one is no good at all. Massive disappointment. As is always the case with these types of albums, I wish they'd just kept it to their own original songs. :(

    • urgh both of those songs are a cheese fest. Hard pass 
    • My CD arrived. Gotta say it is one of the cheapest, shittiest packaging of a cd I have seen. It is just a double panel with a disk (no tray). No booklet, no lyrics, very little info. printed. Terrible artwork (as you can see above). Glad I only paid $17 as it isn't worth more than that presentation wise. Musically I have only listened once so far so will reserve judgement until then. Note - Jack Jones only played on one track, the lead single. But he is touring with the band.

    • Brilliant tune... reminds me of prime MSG, to be honest. Maybe a slight 'Anytime' vibe? But a magnificent song.  But the song I've had in my head all week is '100 thousand years.' Man I love that one. I rated this album fairly earlier in the year, but with a bit of a jumbled year of listening I haven't concentrated too much on albums this year. Listening to everything now, and I have to say that this album stood out as one I maybe did not give it's due credit. Those two songs are excellent, and I also like 'Get Away' and 'Crash & Burn' of the rest. Some nice gear on here. 
    • Exactly. Same goes for Sunstorm.
    • They're solid and consistent... just missing a bit of something to make them stand out for me, personally. The album is solid, like their other stuff. 
    • ADV wrote most of the debut. but that was before he burned himself out writing another 4000 songs of course the main problem is it isn't Revolution Saints. If you still want to showcase DC pick some more band members and call it something else but don't pretend its Rev Saints anymore. 
    • I don't have as much disdain for Del Vecchio as some do, but I can't help but feel like this sounds very... generic in an ADV kind of way? It's not that it's a bad song by any means, it's just that I've only listened to it once, but it feels like I've heard it about 300 times because it sounds like so many other songs Del Vecchio has produced. Secondly, since they've outright admitted that Revolution Saints was meant as a vehicle to showcase Castronovo, without Jack Blades and Doug Aldrich, I'm a little puzzled as to why they didn't just make a Deen Castronovo solo record instead. Surely at this point, anyone familiar with Frontiers, melodic rock music and especially Revolution Saints knows who he is.
