    We have some "Sweet" news for you.

    Two of hard rock's most notable figures have partnered up for a new project!

    That'd be iconic vocalist/guitarist Michael Sweet of Stryper and legendary guitarist George Lynch of Lynch Mob/Dokken. They have teamed up to form a new supergroup Sweet & Lynch.

    Joining them on this new musical adventure are bassist James LoMenzo and drummer Brian Tichy. The band will be releasing the debut album Only to Rise on January 27.

    "When I was approached to help put together an all-star lineup, instantly I thought of George Lynch," explains Michael Sweet. "George is one of the most talented guitarists out there and a 'bucket list' player for me. George wrote riffs/basic ideas and I wrote melodies, lyrics and arranged and completed the songs. I knew that we would compliment each other's style. When you add the amazing rhythm section of Brian Tichy and James LoMenzo, you just can't go wrong with this line-up. It really is a special project and I'm honored to be a part of it!"

    You don't have to wait until early next year for a taste.
