LEATHERJACKS
A CONCEPT THAT BECAME REAL

An innovative and brutal Modern Hard Rock project + Wild Riffs + 80s Metal Nostalgia + The Voice and Guitars of
Mauro Cordeiro + an AMAZING Band = AMAZING EQUATION!


Sao Paulo, Brazil - 2016. Think about Innovation. Now think it seemed impossible, but it happened: Finally in Brazil,
a dreamer decided to dare: Mauro Cordeiro, Singer, Writer, Guitarist and Multi-Instrumentalist created the project that fuses the best of Modern Hard Rock with the best of Traditional Heavy Metal:

Then came LEATHERJACKS, in June 2016.


In just one year, Leather´s got it´s first Álbum finished and released in April 18th 2017, and it´s having a great repercussion in digital Rock / Metal Media Webzines, Websites and Radios worldwide.

Reviews in tons of websites such as Whiplash.net and The RockPit Australia...
Airplays at amazing radios, such as Unphiltered Radio, Spiderweb Radio and lots of other ones...

It all proves that LEATHERJACKS came to stay and to embrace all MetalHeads and Hard Rockers.


The first album entitled THE LOST ARKS OF ROCK AND ROLL, released in April 18th 2017 was totally written, arranged, produced, recorded (voices and all instruments) and mixed by the visionary mastermind Mauro Cordeiro.


Mastering was made by the online service eMastered in partnership with Mauro.

The "LeatherJacks" logo was created by Mauro Cordeiro and developed by Aurélio Lara.

Album Cover Art done by Milena Buzinaro.
"Burning Wire", first LeatherJacks video, was filmed and directed by Caike Scheffer.

Leather also released in December 20th 2017 the single "I Hate To Fall In Love" that´s also having a wide repercussion.

Now the band´s preparing their second upcoming album and Leather´s almost ready to release the next single:
PERSONA NON GRATA.

The Lineup had to change so the band can breath and go on. But soon LeatherJacks mark 2 will rise the hell out!

Mauro Cordeiro: band leader and founder, singer, songwriter, guitarist and visionary, tells a little about the project:

"Since I was 10 years old, in 1996, I always dreamt about being a musician, a player, an artist, you know?
It always´s been like an itchy inside of my soul. It´s simply priceless and precious to share all those sensations and feelings with you all.
Two years ago, when I started it out, I never imagined this amazing repercussion and extraordinary reckonizement for all of my work, neither imagined what I could achieve with my music and my ideas, my ways of thinking about life and stuff, you know?

I think it´s all turning into this amazing reality, mainly because God´s always by my side, and also because I make everything with LOVE and PASSION above it all.
People always knows how to differ and to separate things you make just for money from what you make with a SOUL.

And this is LeatherJacks. It´s like a SON to me. It demands lots of care, lots of time and lots of Passion and Dedication.
And that´s why I´m here: To give my best to all of my fans and to ROCK WITH YOU ALL! LUV YOU!"
