Mike McCready certainly has no plans of sleeping this year.
Via Rolling Stone:
Pearl Jam's Mike McCready and former Guns N' Roses bassist Duff McKagan have formed a new supergroup with former Screaming Trees' drummer Barrett Martin. The new group is currently unnamed, and the band is looking to tap multiple vocalists to help flesh out ideas new and old.
"Duff and Barrett and I got together. We wrote some new stuff and we took some of those old Mad Season demos from that [unreleased] second Disinformation record, so we are trying to find something to do with those," McCready told Billboard. "We're talking to Jaz [Coleman] from Killing Joke and I've been trying to find some singers to work on some of that stuff."
Mad Season, the Nineties band McCready and Martin played in with Alice in Chains singer Layne Staley and bassist John Baker Saunders, are readying a reissue release of the group's only album, Above, which is due April 2nd. The band had intended to record and release a second album, Disinformation, but the new record never materialized. McKagan and Martin also play together in Walking Papers, and McCready worked with the group on their debut album last year.
