Lamb Of God guitarist Mark Morton released his debut solo album Anesthetic earlier this year and he's not done yet! Morton has announced he'll release his mostly-acoustic solo EP Ether sometime in 2020, and much like his debut album, it'll feature some great guests.
Ether will include Lzzy Hale (Halestorm), Howard Jones (ex-Killswitch Engage, Light The Torch), John Carbone (Moon Tooth), and Mark Morales (Sons Of Texas), and will feature three original tracks and two covers. Here's what Morton had to say about the EP.
"I'm thrilled to announce the upcoming release of my new five-song EP Ether on Rise Records! Once again, I've had the great pleasure of working with some amazingly talented artists and friends to assemble this collection of tunes, all of which feature a strong acoustic guitar component. Inspired by the acoustic sets I had the opportunity to perform last spring and summer in support of Anesthetic, I began writing some new songs to reflect that more mellow vibe. I'm stoked with the results and I can't wait for everyone to hear what we've been putting together. I'll be debuting these tunes on my upcoming U.K. acoustic tour, so you can hear them live before they're released anywhere else.
"I continue to be honored to have the chance to work with so many incredibly talented people and I remain beyond grateful to the fans that have come along with me and supported these projects. Thanks so much everyone!"
