What started out as a jam session among three friends is now taking the charts by storm. KXM which is comprised of dUg Pinnick  (King’s X), George Lynch (Lynch Mob/Dokken) and Ray Luzier (Korn) released their debut self titled album last week. The album landed at  #31 on the Billboard Top 200 selling over 9800 units this week. In addition, the album also hit #1 in Hard Rock & Metal on Amazon, #6 on the iTunes Top Rock Albums chart, and #7 on the Top Current Rock Albums chart.

Once you take a listen, you will know that it will keep climbing those charts. It truly is a work of art.  DUg Pinnick on bass and vocals, George Lynch on guitar and Ray Luzier on drums. You may think you are dreaming but it is true. These three legendary artists have fused together their own unique styles and have birthed a sound that will definitely last the test of time which can be relatively short these days in the music scene. This powerhouse trio has an album filled with Lynch signature riffs, Ray’s hard hitting energetic drumming, groove filled basslines and passionate vocals by dUg. The album is being released on Rat Pak Records and was produced by KXM and Chris Collier, who is known for his work with Lynch Mob, Lita Ford and Tommy Bolin and more.

The songs on the album are emotionally driven, filled with killer riffs, thundering drums, and captivating vocals. You are immediately drawn into to each song as it paints a picture with it’s notes and tones. Faith is a Room is one of my favorite tracks on the album and it purely rocks! Rescue Me is another fan favorite and has been getting tremendous amount of airplay. The band also shows their softer side with the ballad Never Stop and takes you an a dark tale of domestic violence with their emotional song, Sleep.    “This cd was way more special to us than just 3 seasoned players in a room jamming, I’m so glad that the fans are appreciating this music & are buying the cd,” states Ray Luzier. “We can’t wait to play these tunes live for you! Please spread the word, we’re all keeping rock alive & kickin!!

We had the opportunity to chat with dUg about the new band and are pleased to bring it to you here:
