Lynch Mob’s Upcoming EP To Be Named ‘Sun Red Sun’ Says Singer
September 22, 2014
Late last week Sleaze Roxx revealed that Lynch Mob’s new EP was nearing completion. Now singer Oni Logan has shared more details about the ‘Sun Red Sun’ release, which will be released in October, and his relationship with former Dokken guitarist George Lynch.
“We just finished an EP that will come out in October,” Logan told The Double Stop in a recent interview. “Its going to be called Sun Red Sun and we got some great songs on there. It will be a total of six songs with a cover of Burning Sky by Bad Company.”
“I was brothers with Ray (Gillen),” says Logan about the title ‘Sun Red Sun’, both a Badlands song and name of one of Gillen’s final projects prior to his death in 1993. “He was a good dude, he was a great guy to me. When I arrived into L.A. he was a beautiful man to me. He was an unbelievable talent. So this Sun Red Sun is his extension — for him. And this song Sun Red Sun is written in the idealism that I’m speaking for him and I’m speaking for me. Sun Red Sun you know, shine on me forever, that kind of thing. So you’ll hear it in the lyrics when you hear the song. So Ray is a dominant and principal meaning in the title of the album.”
“On the 20th, I’m going in and start writing with George (Lynch) again for a good four days,” said Logan about the future of Lynch Mob. “George and I are great. We’re cool and everything’s cool. We can never say goodbye forever, between George and I. It’s always a dangerous curve to us, but we always come back together at some point or another — that’s all.”
“It’s his undeniable riffage, the riffage of the sexiness that he supplies to me that I get from no other. I can never get it from any other,” said Logan when asked what keeps bringing him back to the band. “We have a special thing going on, it’s been like that forever. He evokes the riffs that just make me wanna fucking write. He’s magical, he’s a purist, he’s a deep thinker, and I think he acknowledges me as the same. I think we just need to let things happen at this stage. And I’m always gonna be there for it.”
Lynch Mob’s previous EP, ‘Unplugged: Live At Sugarhill Studios’ was released in March of 2013 through Rat Pak Records. ‘Unplugged’ was recorded at historic Sugar Hill Studios in downtown Houston, Texas during the filming of “Slow Drag”, the video from the band’s highly successful release ‘Sound Mountain Sessions’. The EP featured rare acoustic versions of “Wicked Sensation”, “River Of Love”, “Where Do You Sleep At Night”, and “All I Want” performed by Lynch, Logan, bassist Robbie Crane, guitarist Brian Tichy and percussionist Tyson Sheth.
For twelve years with Dokken, George Lynch was able to develop a groundbreaking brand of guitar virtuoso that would also earn a Grammy nomination. In the early 1990s Lynch launched his own project, Lynch Mob, which harnessed the talent of rock’s best players and released several well-received records, from 1990s ‘Wicked Sensation’ to ‘Unplugged: Live From Sugarhill Studios’. Tracks like “Wicked Sensation”, “River of Love” and “Tangled In The Web” have solidified George Lynch’s position on Guitar World’s list of Greatest Guitarists Of All Time. Live, Lynch Mob is described as desert-infused blues-based rock with a penchant for extended improvising, harkening back to the glorious jam days of the late ’60s and early ’70s.
