Lynch Mob — featuring guitarist George Lynch and lead vocalist Oni Logan — is in the process of re-recording its debut album, Wicked Sensation, for the its 30th anniversary.

The news of  was revealed by current Lynch Mob drummer, Brian Tichy. Speaking about how the coronavirus pandemic affected his touring activities, he told MA Entertainment Global (as per, “I’ve been playing this year with George Lynch and his Lynch Mob band. And we had tour dates being added pretty consistently. We just started up in February. It’s like the 30th-anniversary tour of his first record, and [we’re] playing the record in its entirety. So we made up new merch with that — t-shirts — and the show is based around the first record. And we’re doing a re-record of the whole first record — sort of a revisioned, reimagined take on that first record, ‘Wicked Sensation. Which we’re doing now — now we’re just moving faster on that.

Luckily, between myself, and George Lynch, and the Foreigner bass player Jeff Pilson, who was also in Dokken with George back in the day, we all live up here in the same town, and we all have our own home studios,” he added. “Jeff’s 10 minutes down the road from me, and George is another 10-15 minutes away. So between our three studios, there’s about four projects between the two of them that I’m playing on. So we’re doing that all now. Instead of it being stuff that would happen throughout the year, we’re sticking it all in this chunk of time right now, and we’ll make the most of it.”

Wicked Sensation was originally released on October 29th, 1990 on Elektra Records. The album had two successful singles, with River Of Love climbing to the #19 spot on Billboard’s Mainstream Rock chart as well as Wicked Sensation reaching #31 on that chart.

The 1990 recording line-up was:

    This is one of my favorite hard rock debut albums of all time. I understand if wanted to re-master the original, fine, but re-recording it? Like the old saying goes, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.”

    But like I always say, to each their own.

      I concur with you, Dana, about re-recordings. IMO, the original recordings are always best.

      Maybe artists re-record things as a way to somehow “get control” of their early music…i don’t know….

    Stupid, too me this is one of the best hard rock albums of its time- it worked on every level musically, great original songs instant hard rock classics, the recording, analog ? sound city ? was rich and full, drums sounded powerful and punchy, guitar had a heavy warm crunch Oni Logan, his youthful powerful timeless rock vocals were on par with dio, coverdale and gillen … this just cannot be done any better…it’s a perfect musical statement of its time and its a work of art, for the love of god leave it alone! don’t ruin this music! stupid stupid stupid ……whoever buys this is equally as stupid… George you seem to be a smart guy.. stop being stupid……..
