New Sweet & Lynch album more bare bones and scaled down according to singer Michael Sweet
Sweet & Lynch singer Michael Sweet was recently interviewed by All Music/All Bands and spoke about the band’s sophomore album Unified, which will be released via Frontiers Music Srl on November 10, 2017.
In terms of the development of the Sweet & Lynch group, Sweet stated: “This album, to me, sounds a little bit more focused. It’s a little bit more raw and in your face. The first album was a little more slick, had a little bit more production and effects and things going on and more tracks, too. This album doesn’t have as many tracks. It’s a little bit more scaled-down and bare bones, but I think it works. I really do. We experimented a little bit more. Like the song ‘Walk’, George sent me that. I went ‘Wow, this is cool. I don’t know what to do with it, but it’s really cool.’ It sounds like if you merged Aerosmith and Queen, Stryper and Dokken together, you’re going to get ‘Walk’. It’s kinda cool.”
With respect to the increased diversity on the new album Unified, Sweet advised: “That’s all you can hope and pray for when you make an album. That people are going to connect with it and they’re going to get it. Sometimes it doesn’t happen. Sometimes a band makes an album that they feel is the best album of their career and the fans just don’t get it. It’s happened with us. We made a couple of albums that we were really excited about and they got released and they didn’t do so well. It’s probably happened with anything. It’s really nice to see and hear the band be so excited and the fans and the critics seem to be equally as excited about that album as well. So far, that’s the result of this album. I’m hearing a lot of good things. I think it’s going to be a winner, man. I do. Granted, we’re limited because of the times we live in. Rock isn’t at the top of the charts. It’s a struggle, it’s a battle, it’s a fight for bands from our era and for us to go out there and get it out to the masses and do it the right way, it’s very tough. But man, we’re still trying. We still love what we do. Hopefully that shows.”
