MARK MORTON SHARES NEW SONG SAVE DEFIANCE FEATURING MYLES KENNEDY
Toronto, ON – February 22, 2019 – Mark Morton, the prolific guitarist of Lamb of God, has released the song, Save Defiance. The track features Slash and Alter Bridge vocalist, Myles Kennedy, with Alice in Chains' Mike Inez on bass and Korn's Ray Luzier on drums.
"Myles was our first and only choice for 'Save Defiance’,” Morton says. "He's such a tremendous talent and a remarkably down-to-earth and humble dude. Even before the instrumental pre-production demo was finished, we knew we were going to ask Myles to sing on it. We felt like it was a perfect fit for his voice. He dug the track and made it his own. I'm grateful to have had the chance to work with him."
"Having the opportunity to work with Mark was a really cool experience," Kennedy adds. "I'd been a fan of his work with Lamb of God for a long time so I was honored when he asked if I wanted to sing on his record. Mark did a great job creating a track that would be inspiring for me to sing over. The first time I heard the music, a melody and lyric popped into my head. The creative process felt effortless. I am really happy with how the song turned out overall."
Morton will share the music live across North America next month, with a show in Toronto on March 15 at Lee’s Palace and Montreal on March 16 at L’Astral. See below for a complete list of dates.
