Burning Time (Feat. Todd La Torre, Roxy Petrucci, Billy Sheehan & Jimi Bell)

by Tyson Leslie



Featuring some of Metal Music’s most respected musicians.

Kansas City, MO – December 24th — Written by Tyson Leslie and Todd La Torre (Queensryche), the song Burning Time is a result of five musicians who were willing and able to use the pandemic shut down to their creative advantage.

The song was originally written by Leslie for a different band. But when that band passed on it, Leslie and Roxy Petrucci (Vixen/Madam X) decided to work through it and see what could be made of it. Leslie then reached out to Jimi Bell (Autograph), La Torre, and eventually Billy Sheehan (Mr. Big, Winery Dogs) to round out the lineup.

La Torre worked on lyrics and melodies. Simultaneously, the remaining musicians crafted and recorded their parts remotely as well in Connecticut, Tennessee and Michigan.

Mixed by award-winning engineer Anthony Focx (Beautiful Creatures), with cover art by Jason K. Herman (Nelson) and Brent Engstrom (A Topps designer for Garbage Pail Kids), "Burning Time" is the first single Leslie has released since 2014.

It's also the first metal/hard rock single Leslie has released since venturing into the "solo artist" world.

"Burning Time" will be released digitally through all streaming mediums (iTunes, Spotify, Amazon Music, etc.) and is officially released on Friday, December 31st.

Tyson leslie is a Kansas City/Nashville-based musician who tours as the keyboardist and tour manager for the 80s All Female hard rock band VIXEN. He has also had an extensive career performing for artists Corey Taylor (Slipknot/Stone Sour), Country Music legend Tracy Lawrence, Derek St. Holmes (Ted Nugent Band), and countless others.
