LYNCH MOB have released their last album, ‘Babylon’ and announce The Final Ride, a farewell tour celebrating the band’s 35 year legacy. The tour is expected to kick off in January of 2024 and conclude in March of 2025 on the Monsters of Rock Cruise.
George Lynch states, “After 35 years since the inception of LYNCH MOB, I feel the time is right to let this chapter of my musical life fade off into the sunset. I feel the timing is right because of the solidarity and camaraderie of our current lineup. It ensures that we’re leaving a powerful legacy with no regrets.
“Jimmy D’Anda has been my partner and brother for many decades. Jaron Gulino feels like he was designed in a laboratory to be the perfect bassist for this band. Gabriel Colon defies every lead singer stereotype by being one of the sweetest, kindest and most humble lead singer I’ve ever worked with, yet goes out every night and morphs into a stage stalking, golden throated lord.
“We laugh hard, work hard, and know we can step on to any stage at any time and own it. With our latest record I feel at peace knowing that we’ve documented the final chapter in the 35 year legacy of the MOB.”
After 14 releases, including 8 studio albums, 2 live records, and 4 EP’s, the band celebrates triumphantly with ‘Babylon’. Capturing the sound and energy from current lineup of the band, it serves as the perfect launch pad to catapult the band out onto the road for one last round. Fans can expect to hear new tracks from ‘Babylon’, as well as many of the classics from the many decades of Lynch.
“Babylon” Track List:
2.Time After Time
5.How You Fall
6.Million Miles Away
7.Let It Go
“There’s been so many iterations of LYNCH MOB since the first line-up in 1989 of Oni Logan, Mick Brown, Anthony Esposito, and myself. Putting LYNCH MOB together was just an extension of what I’d always strived for in a band: the best possible musicians, chemistry, and brotherhood. My bands have not only been my best friends, but also family. When we come up together and work hard and struggle together, we create a bond that lasts a lifetime. I think that’s the thing I love the most about my musical journey…creating music in the studio, stepping on stage, and sharing that bond with my friends through music. Thank you to everyone who has been in my band. I really feel it’s ours”, says LYNCH.
New Jersey’s own Jaron Gulino brings the east coast attitude and energy to LYNCH MOB. He has prospered in a long career as the bassist in a variety of bands, most notably post-grunge rock band Tantric. Gulino achieved chart topping success with multiple releases from Tantric, as well as performing on many high profile tours and events with numerous other acts. He is also currently the bassist for Philadelphia hard rockers Heavens Edge.
His bandmate and partner in crime in the rhythm section is none other than original Bulletboys drummer Jimmy D’Anda, who is known for his ability to bring a fantastic element of groove while maintaining the powerful hard rock vibe of LYNCH MOB.
Gabriel Colón is a Puerto Rican singer who started his career with a band called Fast Taker. Since then, he has showcased his wide range of vocal talent with many rock acts including Gothic Knights, Culprit, White Wizzard, and Rowan Robertson. Gabriel is a true talent and a great fit to fill the shoes of his extremely talented predecessors in LYNCH MOB.
LYNCH MOB was formed in 1989 after George Lynch parted ways with his former band Dokken. Their debut release ‘Wicked Sensation’ was met with critical and fan acclaim and went on to be certified gold in sales by the RIAA. The band would continue on through the years with a cast of talented players joining Lynch throughout their musical journey over the course of six more studio albums. ‘Babylon’ is LYNCH MOB’s eighth studio album overall and the first since 2017’s ‘The Brotherhood’.
