German heavy metal star Peavy Wagner is reuniting with his ex-Rage bandmates Manni Schmidt and Christos Efthimiadis to form a new group.

The trio, which performed as Rage from 1988 until the mid-1990s, touched base again earlier this year (14) and performed a secret show in their hometown of Herne under the moniker Tres Hombres, treating fans to a number of Rage hits, and now the rockers have decided to make new music together under the name Refuge.

A statement released by Wagner, Schmidt and Efthimiadis reads: "We are very happy to announce that we will have the opportunity to travel with you through the early years 1988-1993 one more time in the festival summer of 2015."
