I’ve got a badass band put together and I’ll be joining up with my friends in Light the Torch and Moon Tooth for these shows. So, get there early and stay late!”

Morton will release the 10-track album that sees him further explore his creative drive for writing and collaboration. It arrives on March 1, 2019, but CD and vinyl pre-order and merch bundles are now available here. “Cross Off” featuring Chester Bennington is available everywhere here. Also, listen to “The Truth Is Dead,” featuring Randy Blythe and Alissa White-Gluz, here.

The album was made alongside a dream team of highly respected musicians from a multitude of musical worlds; some friends and some who would never be expected to collaborate with metal genre leaders Lamb of God. Singers on the album include Chester Bennington, Randy Blythe, Jacoby Shaddix, Myles Kennedy, Alissa White-Gluz, Mark Lanegan, Chuck Billy, Jake Oni, Josh Todd, Mark Morales, and Naeemah Maddox.
