DAMAGEPLAN To 'Jam' With Their Fans

DAMAGEPLAN, the new band featuring former PANTERA members Dimebag Darrell (guitar) and Vinnie Paul (drums), ex-HALFORD/DIESEL MACHINE guitarist Patrick Lachman (on lead vocals), and bassist Bob Zilla, have posted the following message on their official web site:

"The band's uncompromising commitment to their fans has been revealed with an ingenious 'plan' to include their fans in the most intimate way possible, giving them the chance to jam with them via the Internet. For the first time anywhere, fans can download 4 different versions of 4 different songs from 'New Found Power'. Each version will leave off a full track (vocal, guitar, bass or drum) from each song, allowing the fan at home to fill-in for their missing hero. The songs will be made available in a staggered manner via four digital music providers (DSP), with each song exclusive to that DSP. The songs being included in this promotion are: 'Pride', which goes up on Apple 2/24, 'Save Me' which goes up on Napster 3/1, 'Breathing New Life', which goes up on Real Music 3/8, and 'Reborn' which goes up on Music Match 3/8. Each band member bestowed a special name upon the song versions that omit their track: Vinnie Paul's Skinless mix for all drum-less versions. Dimebag Darrell's Off Axes mix for all guitar-less versions. Bob Zilla's Kill Zilla mix for all bass-less versions. Pat Lachman's Cut-Throat mix for all vocal-less versions."

In related news, producer Kevin Shirley (IRON MAIDEN, DREAM THEATER) has revealed in an online posting that he "mixed a nice track [Wednesday, Feb. 18] for a heavy band yesterday — DAMAGEPLAN, the new band featuring former PANTERA members Dimebag Darrell (guitar) and Vinnie Paul (drums), ex-HALFORD/DIESEL MACHINE guitarist Patrick Lachman (on lead vocals), and bassist Bob Zilla. The song was produced by Darrell and Vinnie along with Sterling Winfield (PANTERA, MERCYFUL FATE), I think — and it was a lot of fun to mix." No further information is available at this time.
