Former FAITH NO MORE Singer Lends Vocal Talents To WEST MEMPHIS THREE Benefit CD

Former FAITH NO MORE and current FANTOMAS/TOMAHAWK frontman Mike Patton has lent his talents to the West Memphis Three benefit album for the three young men—Damien Echols, Jessie Misskelley and Jason Baldwin—who were allegedly convicted unfairly of murder. Patton laid down his vocals to a cover of the BLACK FLAG classic "Six Pack" performed by MOTHER SUPERIOR, the backing band of former BLACK FLAG frontman Henry Rollins, who is spearheading the project.

The as-yet-untitled album, which is scheduled to be released through Sanctuary Records in October, will include appearances by Patton, SLIPKNOT frontman Corey Taylor, Iggy Pop, Hank Williams III, Ice T, members of RANCID, among others.
