Alter Bridge, Korn, & Alice In Chains Members Guest On Lamb Of God Guitarist Mark Morton’s New Song “Save Defiance”

Lamb Of God guitarist Mark Morton has premiered a new song titled “Save Defiance.” This track features Myles Kennedy (Alter Bridge, etc.), Mike Inez (Alice In Chains), and Ray Luzier (Korn), and it will appear on Morton’s new album “Anesthetic” (out March 1).

Morton commented:

“Myles was our first and only choice for ‘Save Defiance‘. He’s such a tremendous talent and a remarkably down-to-earth and humble dude. Even before the instrumental pre-production demo was finished, we knew we were going to ask Myles to sing on it. We felt like it was a perfect fit for his voice. He dug the track and made it his own. I’m grateful to have had the chance to work with him.”

Kennedy added:

“Having the opportunity to work with Mark was a really cool experience. I’d been a fan of his work with Lamb of God for a long time so I was honored when he asked if I wanted to sing on his record. Mark did a great job creating a track that would be inspiring for me to sing over. The first time I heard the music, a melody and lyric popped into my head. The creative process felt pretty effortless. I am really happy with how the song turned out overall.”
