Sevendust guitarist John Connolly and bassist Vince Hornsby have teamed up with Alter Bridge/Creed drummer Scott Philips and Tremonti/Creed guitarist Eric Friedman to form Projected.

In anticipation of this release, the band has released a lyric video for their first single “Watch It Burn”, which you can watch below.

We wholeheartedly believe in these songs…believe in John’s vision…and couldn’t be happier about the future of Projected!”

Mark Tremonti is perhaps one of the most talented guitarists in mainstream popular rock today.

Mark Tremonti’s (Creed, Alter Bridge) solo project Tremonti released its first single, “You Waste Your Time”, last week to smashing success on the iTunes Rock Singles Chart. Landing at #10 just one day after being released on iTunes, the song comes from the upcoming release All I Was, which will be released this July.
“I am overwhelmed by the positive response the song has received already. I never imagined it would hit
the Top 10 so quickly and that is a testament to the amazing fans I have. I couldn’t have gotten anywhere
in my career without them and want to thank each and every one of them for their support. I can’t wait until
they hear the rest of it,” states Tremonti. READ MORE

Words cannot describe how generic, boring, and, in general, awful I think Creed is. Sure, they had a good song here and there (remember What If from the Scream 3 soundtrack?), but the vast majority of their music had me wanting to drive an icepick through my eyes Session 9 style.
Well, it looks like I’m going to have to find some girl to go Basic Instinct on me soon as drummer Scott Phillips has announced that Alter Bridge will take a break while singer Myles Kennedy will work on a new album with Slash. The rest of the band will be teaming back up with Scott Stapp to work on a new Creed album plus a 2012 tour.
Below is a perfect representation of what I hear when a Creed song comes on.
Mark Tremonti, guitarist of Creed and Alter Bridge, has announced that he wants to record and release a thrash metal album. Speaking to ‘Robb’s MetalWorks’ in San Antonio, Tremonti has said: “I just had three months off while Myles was touring with Slash, so I figured it was a good time to get some music put together. I collaborated with Eric Friedman and Garrett Whitlock. All this stuff that I wanted to see the light of day that never really got used for Alter Bridge and Creed is what I’m putting on the record. There’s a lot of speed metal and thrash stuff in there — riffs that I had sitting around — that I’m putting on this record. So it’s definitely a heavier-sounding album.”
Knowing Tremonti’s style and his influences, I’m thinking that this could work and actually end up sounding pretty badass. What do you all think?
So, Blabbermouth.net earlier reported that a 13-year old Norwegian boy was walking home from school when suddenly a pack of wolves came up to him. Too scared to run (which is definitely for the best), the boy whipped out his cell phone and started playing Creed’s ‘Overcome’. The wolves’ response? They turned around and went the other direction.
Damn, wolves are smarter than people give them credit for. I would’ve turned around and walked away too. Wolves, you have my respect.
Korn’s boycott of BP has started a ground swell of like-minded musicians intent on making a statement against the devastation in The Gulf caused by BP’s record setting oil spill. The following top touring artists have joined the cause and have committed to avoid the use of fuel sold by BP or its affiliates on their upcoming tours for 2010: Disturbed, Lady Gaga, Rise Against, Godsmack, Backstreet Boys, Rock Star Energy Drink Mayhem Festival, Slightly Stoopid, Rob Zombie, Megadeth, Black Label Society with Zakk Wylde, Anthrax, Creed, Filter, Hellyeah and Flogging Molly.
“This is the worst thing that has ever happened to the environment in U.S. history. From everything we’re hearing about now, it’s become clear that BP cut corners to put profit ahead of safety. The message we are sending should tell all the oil companies to spend the money and take the necessary precautions to make sure this doesn’t happen again,” said Jonathon Davis of Korn. “I’m really proud that this many artists have already come on board, and I hope more will join soon.”
