THE END, IS NOW THE OFFICIAL NAME FOR THE BAND FEATURING GUITARIST GEORGE LYNCH, BASSIST JEFF PILSON, DRUMMER MICK BROWN AND SINGER ROBERT MASON
The new band featuring three of the members of the classic Dokken lineup (guitarist George Lynch, bassist Jeff Pilson and drummer Mick Brown) and singer Robert Mason (current Warrant and former Lynch Mob frontman) has gotten a new name, the band will be called, The End.
In a recent interview with Idaho’s 94.9 & 104.5 The Rock, George Lynch said (via blabbermouth.net) “I do a lot of records where they’re just sort of seat-of-the-pants, which is nothing wrong with that, like KXM and Ultraphonix, [which are] written real quick — we just get in a room and bang it out and just go with our first instincts, and we don’t really labor over it. THE End record is really the opposite of that.”
“Jeff and I spent a lot of time crafting the songs, as we did in the Dokken days,” he continued. “I think there’s quite a bit of ’70s art rock going on in some of these songs, which is pretty cool. It’s got the usual groove, heavy rock thing, melodic rock thing, it’s got all that — but it’s also got that ’70s, ELO, Elton John [vibe] — just really interesting, intelligent, classic changes. It’s a very satisfying record to listen to — it’s pretty deep, and I think people will really dig it. It doesn’t sound like Dokken; it doesn’t sound like LP [Lynch/Pilson]; it doesn’t sound like Lynch Mob. It has elements of all that, obviously. I think it’s a natural evolution of the LP record that closely it resembles in my mind. It’s me and Jeff sitting at his studio working it out, so what you’re going to get is really that, with Robert Mason on top of it. God, that guy — what a monster…Robert’s been doing Lynch Mob shows this year with us — not all of them, but I’d forgotten how powerful he is. Unbelievable singer.”
The End, which was known in its formative stage as Super Stroke, will tentatively release its debut album in February 2019.
