Hydrogen Announce New Lineup With Former Megadeth Guitarist Jeff Young
January 28, 2010
Ashland Kentucky based rockers HYDROGYN announce a powerful new line up for their next phase of albums and touring. Founding members, Julie ‘the voice’ and guitarist Jeff Westlake have marshaled forces with Jeff Young (ex-Megadeth) on guitar and kHz drummer, Joe Migz. A unique element in the band’s evolving sound includes one of the world’s few master 6-string fretless bassists, Jake Wolf.
Following a recent interview on Jeff’s weekly JFL radio show, Westake & The Pig, the possibility of David Ellefson (Angels of Babylon, Hail, ex-Megadeth) adding some bass work on the album was raised. “It would be an awesome treat for the fans if we can all find time to get that classic duo of Ellefson and Young back together on a song or two!” Westlake shared…
“This is something that has been coming on for a while now… Julie and I have known Jeff Young through our mutual connection with producer Michael Wagener (Metallica, Megadeth, Ozzy, Alice Cooper). Finally everything is just falling in place and it’s spurring everyone’s creativity to new heights… we can’t wait for people to hear what we’re about to throw down!”
Young, who played on Megadeth’s classic, So Far, So Good… So What! and just released his solo CD Equilibrium states that “The first time Michael Wagener played HYDROGYN for me, I was knocked out! Julie & Jeff have all the things people want but rarely find in music today… Julie’s voice & presence are ‘peerless’ in rock and when listeners hear where Jeff and I are taking the twin guitar team concept, I feel they’re really gonna dig it.”
The band is currently in the midst of writing and recording tracks, has a Live DVD in the offing and a simple mission: “To rock every town on planet earth.” The new HYDROGYN band, album and tours… COMING SUMMER 2010.
