Leatherwolf Mike Olivieri, lead vocalist and guitarist had this to say, "It is definitely an honor to bring the Triple Axe Attack to Rocklahoma this year and being part of such a stellar line-up of bands. I'm looking forward to playing a great show and help make this year the best 4 days of classic metal anywhere on the planet. We'll see you there!"
DD Verni of Overkill went on to say, “We're psyched to be part of the Rocklahoma festival! Overkill have been doing the summer festivals in Europe for many years and it's always a great time. So doing one in America with old friends like Anthrax and Metal Church should be a fricken blast.”
