Mick Mars "Loyal To The Lie" from new solo album 'The Other Side Of Mars' (video)

unnamed

Today, Mick Mars has presented the lead single from his solo debut titled 'THE OTHER SIDE OF MARS'  which will be released on February 23, 2024.

Sharing a thought tied to the leadoff track "Loyal to the Lie," Mars shares, "I wanted to do something that was just big and mean," Mars says with a laugh. But no matter what direction he's going in on The Other Side of Mars, what ties it all together is "that people are going to hear my tone – my sound," Mars says. "I am what I am. Nobody else can do it. And like everyone, I've got a limited number of years. So, I'm gonna do all I can to do a lot of stuff."

Mars enlisted a crack team of musicians to help him along the way. A key contributor to the project was Winger and former Alice Cooper keyboardist (and, like Mars, Nashville resident) Paul Taylor, who, in addition to performing on the record and assisting Mars in co-writing many of the tracks, introduced the guitarist to powerhouse vocalist Jacob Bunton. "Jacob came into the studio and it was like, bam!" Mars recalls. "And I just said, 'Yeah, he's the guy.' And most of his vocals were one take."

The supporting band was rounded out by Korn drummer Ray Luzier, bassist Chris Collier and singer Brion Gamboa, who contributed lead vocals to two songs. Mars reflects, "those required a little bit more of an angsty, desperation kind of thing. And Brion really came to the table with that." Alongside playing bass on all songs recorded, Collier mixed and mastered the debut solo album.

But while Mars surrounded himself with a new cast of players for the sessions, there was one figure who represented a significant link to his storied past: Michael Wagener. The much-lauded German producer and engineer worked behind the boards on Mötley Crüe's 1981 debut, Too Fast For Love, and his relationship with Mars stretches even further back. "I had known him for a long time, and I actually brought him to Mötley," Mars says. Working with Wagener this time, the guitarist continues, "he had such an understanding of where I wanted to go with the material. And he never said 'Hey, do this,' or tried to change my mind or anything like that. He was just really, adamant about recording what I wanted to record, and making sure we recorded it right."

The result is a record unlike anything Mars has offered up in his more than 40-year career.

Papa Roach donates $150,000 to American Foundation for Suicide Prevention “Leave A Light On - Talk Away The Dark” (live video)

unnamed

The track will be released as a single on October 31, and royalties from it will be donated directly to AFSP to continue their mission to save lives and bring hope to those affected by suicide long after the "Revolutions Live Tour."

Papa Roach premiered the live video for "Leave a Light On," off their latest offering, 'Ego Trip'. The song has been renamed "Leave a Light On (Talk Away the Dark)" in honor of the AFSP's 'Talk Away the Dark' campaign.

Papa Roach has made a $150,000 to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, from money raised alongside Shinedown and Spiritbox during the Revolutions Live tour that performed to over 250,000 attendees at 30 shows.

"This issue doesn't just affect one of us, or a few of us, it affects all of us. We're proud to work alongside the AFSP to support their mission to bring hope to those affected by suicide, and proud that this song -- which has been special to us since it was first written -- can play a part in bringing a little more light to an incredibly important topic." - Jacoby Shaddix

"We all have a role in preventing suicide and supporting each another's mental health. Music has always been a powerful way to spread these messages. That's why we are so thankful to Papa Roach for making mental health messages a priority throughout their career and most recently with "Leave a Light On" and renaming it after our campaign Talk Away The Dark, and their generous donation will support AFSP's public education, programs for survivors of loss, research, and advocacy work, that is essential to saving lives." - AFSP CEO Bob Gebbia

This song speaks to me...How about you? The connection between the message of the song and the cause is undeniably evident. This impactful initiative teaches us the warning signs for suicide, and how to have a conversation that could save a life — whether it's someone else's or your own. Help is available — Talking, is the first step to preventing suicide.

If you are in crisis or know someone in crisis, call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK (8255) or contact the Crisis Text Line by texting HOME to 741741.

Former Mötley Crüe guitarist, Mick Mars, launched a countdown on his social media accounts. He's posting a short eerie clips hinting that October 31st is the target for his surprise.

He has confirmed that he won't be traveling to promote the new record. "I'm done touring. If somebody really, really wants a one-off, or a couple of nights, I would probably do it. But all that travel stuff and planes … I'm way over it."


Mars has been working on his solo disc on and off for the past seven years.
