Bassist James Lomenzo (MEGADETH, BLACK LABEL SOCIETY, WHITE LION) will join SOULS ON 11 — the new project featuring former MEGADETH guitarist Jeff Young and one of America's true organic voices, Schascle "Twinkle" Yochim — on stage this Friday, January 7 at Molly Malone's in Los Angeles for "some special song performances." This will mark the first time that the two former MEGADETH members from different incarnations will have appeared together on stage.
A fusion of rock, blues, jazz and funk, SOULS ON 11 combines the soulful vocals of Shascle and the bluesy-shred virtuosity of Young.
SOULS ON 11 recently shot a video for its cover version of the AEROSMITH song "Seasons Of Wither" (from the 1974 "Get Your Wings" LP). The clip, which will premiere later this month, was directed and edited by Evan Nesbitt ("X-Men", "Blade", "Three Kings", "Spiderman", "Godzilla", "The Perfect Storm", "The Event") during a live performance in Los Angeles. The video will also be available for sale on iTunes in the first quarter of 2011.
Video footage of SOULS ON 11's November 18, 2010 performance at the Molly Malone's club in Los Angeles, California can be viewed below.
Young previously performed his remake of "Seasons Of Wither" with Twinkle on Sarasota, Florida radio station WSRQ.
The original radio broadcast happened on Saturday July 31, 2010 and you can hear this live recording now at this location.
An interesting side note to this track is that Twinkle actually opened for AEROSMITH in Tampa, Florida a few years ago.
"Seasons Of Wither" appears on Young's debut solo album, "Equilibrium", which came out in 2009. The CD was mixed by Michael Wagener (OZZY OSBOURNE, JANET JACKSON, METALLICA, QUEEN, KING'S X, SKID ROW, EXTREME).
