Mark Slaughter, vocalist/songwriter of the multi-platinum, hard rock/glam-metal band, Slaughter will be releasing his second solo record entitled, 'Halfway There,' on May 26th. The first single from this release, "Hey You," was posted last month, and has already received very positive feedback from both fans and music critics.
Mark Slaughter emerged from the ashes of ex-Kiss guitarist, Vinnie Vincent's band, Vinnie Vincent Invasion (VVI). As the lead singer of the VVI from 1986-88, Slaughter was an impressive frontman with his great stage performances and vocal abilities. After, VVI record label, Chrysalis Records became frustrated with band leader, Vinnie Vincent's erratic behavior, they offered Mark Slaughter, along with VVI bassist, Dana Strum, a new record contact to start their own band, which became, "Slaughter."
Slaughter's first record, "Stick it to Ya," was a huge success, selling over two million units, and had two Top 40 singles, "Up all Night," and, "Fly to The Angels."
Slaughter went on to record four more studio records, and still continues to tour and perform to their devoted fan base.
