Some great news from Morton's Lamb of God, LAMB OF GOD guitarist Mark Morton ready to release his second solo EP, the album titled "Ether", a primarily acoustic five-song EP scheduled for release in January 2020 via Rise Records/BMG.

The "Ether" EP is made up of three original songs and two covers that once again showcase Morton's diversity as a musician. Says Morton: "I'm thrilled to announce the upcoming release of my new five-song EP 'Ether' on Rise Records! Once again, I've had the great pleasure of working with some amazingly talented artists and friends to assemble this collection of tunes, all of which feature a strong acoustic guitar component. Inspired by the acoustic sets I had the opportunity to perform last spring and summer in support of 'Anesthetic', I began writing some new songs to reflect that more mellow vibe. I'm stoked with the results and I can't wait for everyone to hear what we've been putting together. I'll be debuting these tunes on my upcoming U.K. acoustic tour, so you can hear them live before they're released anywhere else.
"I continue to be honored to have the chance to work with so many incredibly talented people and I remain beyond grateful to the fans that have come along with me and supported these projects. Thanks so much everyone!"
