Matt Sorum Set to Release Album 'Stratosphere' 3/11

Related: Matt Sorum

Rock and Roll Hall of Famer and legendary drummer of Guns N' Roses, Velvet Revolver and The Cult, Matt Sorum is releasing his new album, Stratosphere under the moniker, Matt Sorum's Fierce Joy on March 11, 2014 on Rok Dok Recordings via Kobalt Label Services.

Stratosphere is major departure from the hard-hitting rock Sorum is best known for. His intense passion for animal and human rights, and need to give back heavily influenced the narrative and acoustic orchestration of the album. "Over the years I've been influenced by my surroundings and sometimes that hasn't always been for the better," says Sorum. "But after years of soul searching I organically fell into a different state of mind. With many lessons learned along the way, it seemed like the perfect time to do a record in my own voice, if you will. It's as real and exposed as anything I've ever offered my in my career, and I hope you enjoy it."

Besides stepping behind the mic for lead vocals, Sorum wrote the entire album, and plays acoustic guitar and piano. "I've always played acoustic, so I wanted to use that as the feel of the record," Matt says. "I chose the musicians I wanted by records they had played on, and diverse instruments such as mellotron, slide guitar and ethnic percussion. I always wanted orchestration, so this album was the canvas for that as well."
