George Lynch, the charismatic lead guitarist for Dokken—and leader of his own rock bands, Lynch Mob and Souls of We—announces a summer U.S. tour with the re-formed Lynch Mob beginning on July 29th in Houston, TX and finishing in late August on West Coast-with more dates to be announced shortly.
As previously announced, Lynch is releasing his next solo album, Kill All Control, on July 19th through Rocket Science, Inc. This much-anticipated album is the eleventh in his nearly twenty year career. It began as a follow-up to the Souls of We debut, Let The Truth Be Known, however, Lynch quickly realized the project was taking on a new direction with the addition of Powerman 5000 drummer, Adrian Ost. In collaboration with Souls of We singer, London LeGrand (Brides of Destruction), Lynch noted that, “the creative juices just flowed and we wrote most of the CD in 10 days.”
Kill All Control combines many of Lynch’s various styles and histories, including a reflection back to his earlier days, which spawned a follow up to the instrumental Dokken track, “Mr.Scary”, called “Son Of Scary”, featuring Fred Coury of Cinderella on Drums. Additional guests on the album include a variety of well-known singers; Will Marten (Earshot), Marc Torien ( Bullet Boys), and Keith St. John (Montrose) all joined in on the new album. Lynch hopes he’s created an “eclectic listening experience for all my fans.”
In 2009, Lynch re-formed Lynch Mob and released Smoke and Mirrors, which resulted in an extended tour and the reuniting of the band’s original line-up, to the delight of many fans. Lynch Mob is currently working on a new album, due out later this year.
Lynch came to fame in the 1980s through his work as the lead guitarist in the band Dokken. Dokken had a string of successful platinum albums including Under Lock and Key and Back for The Attack, both of which featured Lynch’s inventive and intricate guitar work.
Lynch Mob band members are: George Lynch on guitar, Oni Logan/lead vocals, Robbie Crane (formerly of Ratt) on bass/vocals, Scott Coogan on drums/vocals.
