Projected “Ignite My Insanity” is the new sophomore release from the super-group comprised of Sevendust guitarist John Connolly, Alter Bridge/Creed drummer Scott Phillips, Sevendust bassist Vinnie Hornsby and Tremonti guitarist Eric “E-ROCK” Friedman and is the long awaited follow-up to their 2012 self-released debut album “Human”.
Ignite My Insanity features 21 all new tracks and is an album that's sure to resonate with fans from the band’s original projects and guaranteed to garner new fans along the way. From the infectious guitar riffs off disc one’s “Reload”, to the crushing finale of ”Battlestations” on disc two, Projected have created something truly special. Songs like “Rectify”, “Call Me The Devil” and “Vain” are stand-out testaments to John’s heavy riff writing capabilities, while more melodic songs like “10 Years Gone”, “Faith” and “Inside the Sun” bring you to a place of quiet reflection. Songs “Reload” and “Ignite” are sure to be instant fan favorites!
On the subject of Projected’s new record, John Connolly comments, “There are four very strong personalities in this band. Everyone has been in the business doing various things, from Tremonti to Alter Bridge to Creed to Sevendust and it took all those elements and sounds to make this album what it is!”
Guitarist Eric “E-Rock” Friedman comments, “When I think Projected, the first words that come to my mind is a very raw and honest band. Things aren’t overthought. It’s very organic.”
Scott Phillips adds, “We’re all part of other bands that we’ve put our heart and soul and life into and this was just a chance to extend that into somewhat of a different direction."
Says bassist Vinnie Hornsby, “We’ve been playing so long together, you know it’s kinda' like a marriage to a certain degree, it really warms my heart to be able to play with my friends and these great musicians.”
With thought provoking lyrics, heavy guitar riffs, rock-solid bass grooves and stand-out drumming, “Ignite My Insanity” delivers all the power and punch that one would expect from these high-level players! Official release date is July 21, 2017.
