SWEET/LYNCH

stillband2014horizontal_638

A 58-second audio snippet of the song “Time Will Tell” from SWEET/LYNCH — the new band featuring guitarist/vocalist Michael Sweet of Christian hard rockers STRYPER, legendary guitarist George Lynch (T&NDOKKENLYNCH MOB), bassist James Lomenzo (MEGADETHWHITE LIONBLACK LABEL SOCIETY) and drummer Brian Tichy (S.U.N.WHITESNAKE) — can be streamed using the audio player below. (Note: The name STILL was briefly considered for this project but was ultimately abandoned in favor of SWEET/LYNCH.)

SWEET/LYNCH‘s debut album will be released in early 2015 via Frontiers. The band’s first lyric video for the song “September” — a tribute to the victims of the 2001 attacks on the World Trade Center in New York — will be made available on September 11.

Sweet told Guitar International about SWEET/LYNCH: “It was the brainchild of Serafino Perugino at Frontiers Records. He asked me to basically sing on this record and then I suggested producing it. I co-wrote the songs with George. I called Brian Tichy and James Lomenzo to put the band together. It’s an incredible combination of classic ’70s and ’80s. You will hear some flavors of JOURNEYBAD COMPANYDOKKENVAN HALEN and STRYPER.”

He added: “I love this CD. I’m super excited for people to hear this CD. I’m so proud of it.

James and Brian are amazing musicians. They tore it up. The drums and bass are just as impressive as the guitars. Everybody really delivered… The musicianship level on this is top notch. It sounds as if we were all in the stuff playing together and we were not. Basically, George wrote some riffs about a minute to a minute and a half long. I wrote lyrics and melodies then arranged them. I cut and pasted them together in the studio. Then Brian and James came out and tracked the drums and bass, as well as some rhythm stuff. We then sent it to George to add the guitars.”

Asked if there will be any live dates in support of the album, Sweet said: “We are one million percent sure there will be a tour.”

When asked about Jeff Pilson, George said “He and I talked recently and we are going to finish the second T&N record in November. We are going to retitle the band and we will be using Michael Sweet as a vocalist. So basically, it’ll be myself, Mick Brown and Jeff Pilson.

George/KXM interview on Legendary Rock Interviews

Forget everything you know and all of his legendary ties to the past, George Lynch is just getting warmed up.  His new band, KXM featuring lead vocalist/bassist Dug Pinnick of King’s X and drummer Ray Luzier of Korn have released their highly original, debut, self-titled album to rave reviews (including ours) and the fan interest is just as intense.  George also has a ton of other musical and film projects going on (including an upcoming album with Michael Sweet and a brand new lineup of Lynch Mob) and he recently took the time to give me a call and talk about anything and everything swirling around the perpetual tornado known as “Mr. Scary”, read on…
