Electric guitar legend George Lynch has been a busy man as of late.
Now, there's been another, even more exciting development in Lynch's world: the announcement of his first-ever all-instrumental solo album, Seamless.
Set for an August 20 release via Rat Pak Records, the album features Jimmy D’Anda on drums and Eric Loiselle on bass, and was produced by Lynch himself.
“Seamless is my attempt at creating a guitar-driven instrumental record that delivers something outside the realm of what most people would expect from a guitar instrumental record coming from a semi-redeemed 80’s hair shredder," Lynch said in a statement.
"I wanted the record to be challenging but not exhausting – personal without being belligerently self-indulgent and include a fair amount of guitar histrionics and pay tribute to the masters without making it sound like I’m competing to be the end-all summation of all guitar legacies that preceded me.
"I also wanted the underlying music to be more than vehicles for solos; I wanted the compositions to be able to stand on their own.”
