Work on the band’s second LP, “SHOWDOWN” is completed and its worldwide release is scheduled for March 2013. Audio samples of the forthcoming second album, can be streamed in the YouTube clip below.
The new album was produced/mixed by Italian producer team Dysfunction Productions (Anthony Phillips, John Wetton, Logan Mader, etc.) and mastered by US senior mastering engineer Ue Nastasi (Gojira, AC/DC, Lamb Of God, Anthrax, Yngwie Malmsteen, etc.) from Sterling Sound Studios.

After the lucky outset of their first album “Broken Uncle’s Inn” back in 2011, the band is ready to strike the world with a massive amount of rock n’ roll once again.
Voodoo Highway is a powerful new quintet featuring Federico Di Marco (vocals), Filippo Cavallini (bass), Matteo Bizzarri (guitars), Alessandro Duò (keys) and Vincenzo Zairo (drums).
Have been indicated as one of the new revelations worldwide and defined as “the new Deep Purple” from such a big name in music as the former Rainbow/Black Sabbath/Gary Moore bassist Craig Gruber.
Now known to most for the outrageous stage presence, crashing executions, a style that hovers between Ritchie Blackmore’s Rainbow and The Darkness and for smashing instruments on stage.
The year 2013 will see Voodoo Highway marching straight to Hell!
