PROJECTED, the new project featuring SEVENDUST members John Connolly (guitar) and Vince Hornsby (bass) alongside ALTER BRIDGE/CREED drummer Scott Phillips and guitarist/vocalist Eric “Erock” Friedman (a.k.a. Erock; TREMONTI), is currently mixing a song called “12804”, which is a “song I wrote as my tribute to Dimebag Darrell,” says Connolly. He adds, “My daughter Jordan, who is 7, has declared the song a single! I guess I gotta agree. Probably my favorite song on the [forthcoming PROJECTED] record.”
The songtitle “12804” is a reference to the December 8, 2004 date, which is when former PANTERA guitarist “Dimebag” Darrell Abbott was shot and killed onstage while performing with DAMAGEPLAN at the Alrosa Villa in Columbus, Ohio.
PROJECTED‘s debut release is expected to be made available later in the year.
Connolly describes PROJECTED‘s musical direction as “not super heavy. . . somewhere closer to FOO FIGHTERS/A PERFECT CIRCLE. It’s sorta heavy, just not real metal. I guess. The songs are pretty badass, though.”
