PANTERA guitarist Dimebag Darrell and drummer Vinnie Paul have officially named their new band DAMAGEPLAN. The group, whose debut album is due January 27 through Elektra Records, also features singer Patrick Lachman, who used to play guitar in HALFORD and DIESEL MACHINE.

The album, tentatively titled "New Found Power", was recorded at Darrell's home studio, Chasin Jason, and was produced by Darrell and Paul along with Sterling Winfield (PANTERA, MERCYFUL FATE). Guests include SLIPKNOT's Corey Taylor (lead vocals on second verse and bridge and splitting lead vocals on last verse in "Fuck You") and OZZY OSBOURNE/BLACK LABEL SOCIETY guitarist Zakk Wylde (lead outro on "Reborn" and backing vocals on "Soulbleed").
