Members Of Pearl Jam, Guns N’ Roses And Screaming Trees Form New Supergroup [Listen]

first_imgLevee Walkers, a new supergroup featuring Pearl Jam guitarist Mike McCready, Guns N’ Roses bassist Duff McKagan, and drummer Barrett Martin of Screaming Trees, has released two new singles “Freedom Song” and “Tears for the West”.  While all three musicians have known each other and played together over the years, this particular project was born out of the Mad Season reunion show – both McCready and Martin were in that group with Alice in Chains’ Layne Stayley – that took place in 2014 at Seattle’s Benoroya Hall.Both songs feature vocals from Killing Joke’s Jaz Coleman. Apparently, the band will be releasing more music with additional singers, saying that Coleman is one of only “a handful of select singers who will be putting words and voice to the music of the Levee Walkers. More walkers are coming, as they emerge from the shadows”. Check out “Freedom Song”:On the group’s Facebook page, they are described as, “a Seattle band to be sure, but their roots are firmly dug into the foundational music of blues, rock, and punk, reinterpreted through the filter of the Pacific Northwest. To become a Levee Walker you must have at least 25 years of musical experience, survived battles with the forces of darkness, and perhaps even kissed death on the cheek. More importantly, there must exist a deep reverence for the music of your comrades, and the commitment they made to this hardest of paths.” We are looking forward to more music from Levee Walkers.Check out their second single “Tears for the West” below:[via Consequence of Sound]last_img
