Lanegan Tapped To Complete Unfinished Mad Season Tracks
January 9th, 2013
Former Screaming Trees singer Mark Lanegan lends vocals to three unfinished tracks for the Columbia Records' deluxe reissue of the 1995 Mad Season record. If you're not familiar Mad Season featured the now late Layne Staley of Alice In Chains, Pearl Jam's Mike McCready, Lanegan's one time Screaming Trees band mate Barrett Martin, and the late John Baker Saunders. Sadly both Staley and Saunders died of drug overdoses in the intervening years. Columbia says the unfinished material dates from a planned second album that was abandoned as Staley's health deteriorated. The package will also include audio of one live show and a DVD from another both dating from 1995.
