SOULS OF WE: 'Skeleton Key' Video Released

"Skeleton Key", the new video from the collective foursome known as SOULS OF WE — featuring legendary guitarist George Lynch (DOKKEN, LYNCH MOB) and charismatic frontman London Legrand (BRIDES OF DESTRUCTION) — can be viewed below.

Lynch and Legrand came together by a chance meeting on Melrose in Hollywood. "Back when George was putting together LYNCH MOB, I read in a magazine that he was looking for a singer," explains Legrand. "I made a homemade audition tape on my jam box and sent it to his manager, but I never got a call back. Anyway, years later I'm standing on Melrose Avenue in Hollywood and I see George. I decided I didn't have anything to lose, so I walked up to him and said, 'How come you never got back to me on that tape?' He looked confused at first and then started laughing. We hit it off immediately and he invited me to come check out a new batch of songs he was working on. He gave me a tape of music, and that night I went home and finished three songs."

Rounding out SOULS OF WE's recording lineup was powerhouse drummer Yael (TOM MORELLO, ALEX SKOLNICK) and bassist Johny Chow.

Lynch and Legrand originally started crafting the songs that would ultimately make up "Let The Truth Be Known" five years ago. However, the project was temporarily put on hold for a couple of years while Lynch worked on various projects and Legrand joined BRIDES OF DESTRUCTION, the band featuring Nikki Sixx of MÖTLEY CRÜE and Tracii Guns from L.A. GUNS. After the BRIDES split, Legrand and Lynch rekindled their partnership and finished work on their most ambitious project yet.

"Let The Truth Be Known" was self-produced in various studios around Los Angeles and mixed by Mudrock (AVENGED SEVENFOLD, GODSMACK). The record features several guest musicians including, drummer Morgan Rose (SEVENDUST) and bassist Fred Leclercq (DRAGONFORCE). "We went in to this project with no funding, no label, no producer and no band," explains Lynch. "We were just doing demos and making the music that we wanted to make. There was no one looking over our shoulders and no deadlines."
