About

Pay To Play is the title of my band Mack's new album, out digitally October 11th. Whether you're on the Sunset Strip or the Vegas Strip -- and I've spent a lot of time on both -- or  living life anywhere else, you've gotta pay to play. Or, to put it another way, what we get out of life depends on what we give. Hence the album title.

Me, bassist Michael "MK" Kelly (Magnified) and guitarist Billy O'Malley (Seka, Stripmind, Jocobono) are bigtime vinyl freaks and sequenced the album with vinyl in mind. We're hoping you'll consider helping us finance the vinyl pressing and a video for the lead-off track, "Ride The Sky." Imagine Race With the Devil meets the original Wicker Man and you'll get an idea where we're going with the video.

Of course, if you pay, we'll definitely let you play. Depending on what you feel comfortable contributing you could wind up with an autographed vinyl album to spin, playing an extra in the video, or kicking it with us at an upcoming gig. Which brings me to another cool part of our story -  our buddy Blas Elias (Slaughter) will be drumming for us at the live shows, so I can get out from behind the kit and sing.

So check out the stream of "Ride The Sky" and let's rock!

Thanks!

Jason
