During a recent interview with SiriusXM‘s Eddie Trunk, George Lynch talked about his plans for the upcoming third album from SWEET & LYNCH, his collaboration with guitarist/vocalist Michael Sweet of STRYPER.
“Michael is a Christian, and I’m of a different persuasion, and when we do records together, we always have those discussions,” the legendary axeman said. “They’re not arguments — just discussions. Next record, we’re going to do a concept record, and I’ll be advocating for one side of the argument, and he’ll be advocating for another. That’s what the record is going to be about. We were going to do it on this last record, but it ended up I couldn’t go work with him back in Boston. I had to stay in California and work, so we couldn’t put our heads together and make that happen. But the next record, if we do a third record, that is the plan. And I would like to see that happen, so it is different.”
SWEET & LYNCH‘s sophomore album, “Unified”, was released last November via Frontiers Music Srl.
In addition to Sweet and Lynch, SWEET & LYNCH features bassist James LoMenzo (MEGADETH, WHITE LION, BLACK LABEL SOCIETY) and drummer Brian Tichy (THE DEAD DAISIES, WHITESNAKE).
SWEET & LYNCH‘s debut album, “Only To Rise”, came out in January 2015 via Frontiers Music Srl.
Sweet told That Drummer Guy that “Unified” is “a little bit more focused” and “more raw and in your face” than “Only To Rise”. “The first album was a little more slick, had a little bit more production and effects and things going on and more tracks, too,” he said. “This album doesn’t have as many tracks. It’s a little bit more scaled-down and bare bones, but I think it works.”
