Drummer Matt Sorum (VELVET REVOLVER, GUNS N' ROSES, THE CULT) has issued the following update:

"Longtime musical partner [American guitarist, songwriter and producer] Lanny Cordola [GIUFFRIA, HOUSE OF LORDS, MAGDALLAN] and myself have formed GLOBAL SOUND LODGE, a new musical consciousness. Our first song, entitled 'Hands Together' [hear audio below], was written for the Hatian people in this time of tragedy in their homeland.

"We hope to build a group of international musicians with varied humanitarian efforts based on situations around the world that need our attention.

"John Coltrane believed music can heal the world in his song 'Love Supreme'. John Lennon had this vision as well.

"GLOBAL SOUND LODGE have songs ready to record for Aung San Suu Kyi, Neda [Soltan] who was shot during the Iranian elections.

"After many years traveling the world playing music and meeting so many people.I believe it is in us all to come together with love and music to help one another."

GLOBAL SOUND LODGE's first song, entitled "Hands Together", which features a guest appearance by Slash (VELVET REVOLVER, GUNS N' ROSES), is available for streaming below.
