Bassist Duff McKagan of Guns N’ Roses and Velvet Revolver, guitarist Mike McCready of Pearl Jam and drummer Barrett Martin of Screaming Trees have formed a Seattle-based supergroup named Levee Walkers. The band hired Seattle local frontman Aryon Jones as vocalist on their latest 2-song single “All Things Fade Away/Madness.”
“The three of us [conceived the Levee Walkers] to make music with guest vocalists,” said McCready describing the project to Rolling Stone. “It’s been a cool, enlightening experience for me as Duff and Barrett push me to be a better musician. We’ve been lucky enough to have Jaz Coleman from Killing Joke and Latin artist Raquel Sophia sing with us. Our latest great singer and guitar player is Ayron Jones from Seattle. Ayron is a super-talented singer-songwriter who has added a new fuel to the fire of Levee Walkers songs. He is also a smokin’ guitar player that needs to be heard.”
This is the band’s third single, following a pair of 2016 releases featuring Coleman and Sophia on vocal duties. Martin produced the latest release, with Seattle icon Jack Endino mixing. The two new tracks will be available for purchase Friday, both digitally and on a seven-inch. You can buy the single on Friday here.
