The latest band to join the ranks of the re-united is the original line-up of the classic rock band, Petra! That’s right, before John Schlitt was the band’s signature frontman, diehard fans will remember that Greg X. Volz was the band’s original singer. Now, the rock band is back together again – Greg, Louie Weaver (Drums), John Lawry (Keys, Vocals), Bob Hartman (Guitar, Vocals), and Mark Kelly (Bass, Vocals)!
On the newly updated, ClassicPetra.com, the band has posted new photos of themselves along with the following announcement of new music!

“Petra will be back in the studio this Summer to re-record a CD of previous hits from the records: Never Say Die, More Power To Ya, Not of This World, and Beat the System. Classic songs like “More Power To Ya,” “Judas Kiss,” “Grave Robber,” “Adonai,” and “Beat The System” will be revamped with a modern production edge.

In addition, the band will craft some new songs to add to the classic hits on each record, with production scheduled to be completed August 10, 2010.”

In addition, the band will be doing a “Back To The Rock” 2010/2011 World Tour with the following info included on their site as well…

“The tour begins in the USA on October 15th and stretches across the globe through 2011. Dates and venues are currently being scheduled.”
