The surviving members have been teasing it for awhile - but now we have a firm date for when we can expect new material from Mad Season.
Drummer Barrett Martin told The Sun Break that the band will re-issue their 1995 record "Above" alongside a handful of new songs as part of box set that will be released on March 12th. The package will also include both unreleased live recordings and a copy of the "Live at The Moore" DVD.
Martin and Mike McCready (Pearl Jam) are the only surviving original members of the group that also featured Layne Staley (Alice in Chains), and the late John Baker Saunders
“The most exciting stuff: three songs that Mark Lanegan wrote lyrics and sang on, songs that we started to record for the second album but never finished because of Baker’s and Layne’s deaths,” Martin explains. “One of the songs Peter Buck wrote with us, and the other two are from me and Mike. They are three of the heaviest and most beautiful songs Mad Season did, and I know Layne and Baker will love them.”
