George Lynch thinks new album ‘Wicked Sensation Reimagined’ will be Lynch Mob’s swan song
Lynch Mob, KXM, Ultraphonics and occasional Dokken guitarist George Lynch was recently interviewed by Anne Erickson for Audio Ink Radio. Lynch Mob consisting of Lynch, lead vocalist Oni Logan, bassist Robbie Crane and drummer Brian Tichy will be releasing the album Wicked Sensation Reimagined via Rat Pak Records on August 28, 2020 to celebrate the 30th year anniversary of the band’s debut album Wicked Sensation.
On whether Lynch Mob are thinking of recording new music, Lynch indicated (with slight edit): “No, we are not, actually. We had an opportunity to, but with everything going on right now in the world, it was really sort of an epiphany moment. I just kind of woke up and said, I think with this record, this is our swan song. I think this would be a good place to exit the stage, that we’ve created this book end– an answer to the first record. The name itself, of course, has always been problematic, and now it’s inexcusable to keep the name. So, things have just sort of all conspired. A lot of different events triangulated to this point where it just makes sense on every single level to let it go and wrap it up with a nice neat bow with this record and move on.”
In terms of the album Wicked Sensation Reimagined being Lynch Mob‘s final album but not Lynch‘s final one, the guitarist stated: “Yeah, not me – just Lynch Mob. I’m not going to tour anymore with that name or put out any more records with that name. I’ll probably still play with some of the same people. We’ll just call it something else. I’m just finishing up my fourth album for this year, so I’ve got plenty of projects that I can do. I’m starting a fourth KXM record later this summer, and I’ve got an instrumental record coming out, and another project I did with Jeff Pilson with Heavy Hitters. It’s really interesting. It’s two songs from the last five decades that we re-interpreted and re-imagined, and had a lot of fun with, so we have everything from Little Richard to Madonna to Timbaland to Duran Duran, just all kinds of different music that we had fun with, so there may be a series of those records. So, I have a lot of projects that keep me busy.”
