In our latest interview with Guitarist George Lynch that will be posted soon, we asked him if they’ll be any future Dirty Shirley albums with vocalist Dino Jelusick. Lynch told us he didn’t think so as Jelusick and the label Frontiers Records are in a nasty court battle over a long list of things.
It’s public news that some of the established 80’s acts have left Frontiers publicly saying that the label doesn’t promote their music as they should. They act more like a distributor than a label. Primal Fear, Jack Russell’s Great White, to name a couple that comes to mind.
We checked with our sources regarding Jelusick and Frontiers locking horns and it’s true that both parties are in a lengthy court battle over unspecified issues.
This would make sense as Jelusick finished recording a new Animal Drive album that he was posting about how excited he was for people to hear the sophomore release from the band. Frontiers sacked the album and Jelusick hasn’t released any new music except collaborations covering famous songs on social media.
Why would Frontiers sideline one of the most in-demand vocalists in hard rock and heavy metal?
We’ve reached out to Frontiers and Jelusick for comment and we’ll let you know when they respond.
