New KXM Album is 'Better Than The First Two,' Says GEORGE LYNCH

KXM, the band featuring bassist/vocalist Doug "dUg" Pinnick (KING'S X), guitarist George Lynch (LYNCH MOB, DOKKEN) and drummer Ray Luzier (KORN), is wrapping up the recording process for its third album at Steakhouse Studio in North Hollywood, California. The LP, which is being tracked with producer/engineer Chris Collier — who also helmed the group's first two releases — will be issued later this year by Rat Pak Records.

During a recent interview with SiriusXM's Eddie Trunk, Lynch stated about KXM: "We just finished basic tracking and writing last [month]. We went in the studio for eleven days at Steakhouse Studios in North Hollywood, and we just had a blast. We posted a lot of stuff on social media, and people can see the inner workings of how we're getting things done during the writing process and tracking process. It was just so much fun."

Lynch admitted that he was "a little nervous — I think we all were — that we thought, 'Well, does lightning strike three times?' We got in the studio again and just wrote everything from scratch and opened up the mics, and we wrote one or two songs a day, and at the end of eleven days, we had a whole record," he said.

According to Lynch, the new KXM album is "better than the first two. It's insane," he said. "The magic's there, the chemistry's there, and we're just sitting here patting ourselves on the back [laughs], telling each other what geniuses we are. We're just hoping that, as we always do, we'll be able to find some time to tour on it. It's very, very frustrating for us, and for the fans. It's a challenging thing to be able to pull off, because we're all in many other projects, and especially, Ray Luzier being in KORN, it's not like KXM can call up KORN and say, 'Hey, can you guys take a couple months off so we can tour?' It needs to be out there live, [and] we are going to continue to try to find a way to make that happen."

KXM — which derives its name from a combination of its members' other projects (K from KORN, X from KING'S X and M from LYNCH MOB) — issued its self-titled debut in 2014. The 13-track follow-up, "Scatterbrain", was released on March 17, 2017.
