LAMB OF GOD's MARK MORTON Joined By JACOBY SHADDIX, MARK LANEGAN For 'Zippo Sessions' Acoustic Set (Video)

Jacoby Shaddix (PAPA ROACH), Mark Lanegan (SCREAMING TREES) and Mark Morales (SONS OF TEXAS) joined LAMB OF GOD guitarist Mark Morton for an acoustic set earlier today (Saturday, May 18) at this year's Sonic Temple Art + Music Festival, which is being held May 17-19 in Columbus, Ohio. The event was part of Zippo Encore's "Zippo Sessions", exclusive, intimate acoustic sessions with some of the hottest bands playing at the major festivals that the company booth attends. Watch video footage of the performance below.

Shaddix, Lanegan and Morales are among the musicians who make guest appearances on Morton's debut solo album, "Anesthetic", which was released in March. The first single from the LP, "Cross Off", features late LINKIN PARK singer Chester Bennington. Other singers on the album include Randy Blythe (LAMB OF GOD), Myles Kennedy (SLASH, ALTER BRIDGE), Alissa White-Gluz (ARCH ENEMY), Chuck Billy (TESTAMENT), Jake Oni, Josh Todd (BUCKCHERRY) and Naeemah Maddox. Musically, Morton performs all guitars, with Roy Mayorga (STONE SOUR), David Ellefson (MEGADETH), Ray Luzier (KORN), Paolo Gregoletto and Alex Bent (TRIVIUM), Mike Inez (ALICE IN CHAINS), Jean-Paul Gaster (CLUTCH), Steve Gorman and Marc Paul rounding out the band.

Regarding how Shaddix ended up singing the song "Sworn Apart" on "Anesthetic", Morton told Consequence Of Sound: "I've known Jacoby for years, and the PAPA ROACH and LAMB OF GOD camps are pretty friendly, just from having done festivals and stuff together. I didn't hear anybody but Jacoby singing that song."

Morton had been writing some of this debut for years. "This album wasn't a concerted effort to start something outside LAMB OF GOD," he explained. "Music is always in my head, and until I write and record it, it's stuck there. But once I record it, it's out. It's a catharsis, more for my own sanity."
