Mick Mars’ debut solo album with Jacob Bunton on vocals tentatively slated for release this summer
Former Adler and Lynam frontman Jacob Bunton was recently interviewed by Matt Wake for Alabama’s AL website, which states: “Bunton is lead singer on Mars’ highly anticipated debut solo album. Although former Crue replacement singer John Corabi spent some time in the studio with Mars a few years back, Bunton, who lives in Chelsea, Alabama near Birmingham, is the sole lead vocalist on the as-yet untitled album. The album is tentatively planned for summer release.”
In terms of the upcoming debut solo album from Mötley Crüe guitarist Mick Mars, Bunton indicated: “I can tell you that I’m involved and the past several months we wrote and recorded a record and Michael Wagener produced it. The great Michael Wagener from (mixing 1986 Metallica album) “Master of Puppets” and all that kind of stuff. He worked with Motley Crue on their very first record “Too Fast For Love,” when they did it themselves they recorded the record and then Michael Wagener mixed, and then when they got the record deal with Elektra, (Queen producer) Roy Thomas Baker ended up going back and remixing it. But on all of their self-released copies it’s Michael. But to make a long story short, Michael’s producing the record because that was the first producer Mick worked with in Motley Crue so he wanted to do his solo album so it’s been really cool. We’ve been recording it in Nashville and we’re almost done.”
Bunton added: “The songs are really cool, the record is really cool. He’s such an inventive player and his riffs are insane and it’s definitely going to be what people are expecting. When they hear it … It’s really cool.”
