What do you get when you take either current or former members of such bands as Living Colour, God Forbid, Negative Sky, or Bowie Experience, and introduce them to one another?
The answer is the new band project DISCIPLES OF VERITY, featuring singer Corey Glover (Living Colour, Ultraphonix), drummer Corey Pierce (God Forbid, Lead Pipe Cruelty), bassist George Pond (ex-Negative Sky), and guitarists Mark Monjoy (Sekond Skyn) and Danny Puma (Negative Sky). Together, this quintet possess nearly unimaginable creativity and the capabilities to bring any musical vision to life.
That is exactly what they have done, announcing the band’s début full-length album, ‘Pragmatic Sanction‘, will arrive sometime this winter. Other details are a bit limited at this point, but fret not for DISCIPLES OF VERITY are now sharing the new single, “Worthy“, the lead-in track of the album.
Corey Glover included the following comment along with it, saying:
“No matter what you go through as long as you’re breathing and still here to see another day, it is another chance. Being worthy though, that is the rub you are always trying to figure out. The heart and mind play against each other. Your mind may says you aren’t good enough, but your heart knows you are worthy. That said, I am here for a reason. I am ‘WORTHY’!”
“Worthy” features a very special guest on the track, guitarist Jeff Loomis (Nevermore, Arch Enemy, Sanctuary), and is delivered via lyric video format. The list of musicians making guest appearances on the upcoming album is astounding and includes several Platinum-Selling and Grammy-Award winning artists. They include: Morgan Rose (Sevendust), Phil Demmel (Vio-lence, ex-Machine Head), Tara McLeod (Kittie), Mike Antine (Majul), JJ Sammataro (Negative Sky), and solo artist Joe Gareri.
Further information and more are expected to arrive soon, while ‘Pragmatic Sanction‘ is scheduled for a winter release from The Label Group / INgrooves.
