Former ANTHRAX and current RED LAMB guitarist Dan Spitz and his wife Candi as well as their twin four-year-old boys are raising awareness of the life-changing effects of autism by participating in this Sunday's Walk Now For Autism Speaks at City Commons in West Palm Beach, Florida.
"Autism is what makes our children special, we do not see it as a disability. They are beautiful, intelligent, silly and we love that they see the world differently," explains Candi Spitz, who is also on the committee for Autism Speaks. The couple's four-year-old twin songs autism diagnosis has given the Spitz family a mission to do all they can for not only their children but the 1 in 110 U.S. children currently diagnosed with the disease.
The entire Spitz family will be walking at the March 4 Walk Now For Autism Speaks event and will film portions of a documentary on their sons at the event. The currently untitled documentary is being produced by SheKnows.com, a prominent parenting website that won both a 2010 and 2011 OMMA Award for Excellence.
Dan Spitz formed RED LAMB in 2010 and recently released a self-titled debut album co-produced with Dave Mustaine (MEGADETH). Spitz and Mustaine also co-wrote the song "Puzzle Box" for the release; a video for the track is in the works with footage from Sunday's event being included. Chris Vrenna (NINE INCH NAILS, MARILYN MANSON) oversaw all programming for the album. Vrenna and Spitz are also working on a side project with more details to be announced shortly.
RED LAMB features Spitz (lead guitar, guitar, bass guitar, programming, background vocals, engineering,co-producer), Patrick Johansson (drums; YNGWIE MALMSTEEN, W.A.S.P.) and Don Chaffin (vocals and video productions).
