Album: Anesthetic
Release Date: March 1st, 2019
Label: Spinefarm Records

Mark Morton said of the new track:

Myles was our first and only choice for ‘Save Defiance’. He’s such a tremendous talent and a remarkably down-to-earth and humble dude. Even before the instrumental pre-production demo was finished, we knew we were going to ask Myles to sing on it. We felt like it was a perfect fit for his voice. He dug the track and made it his own. I’m grateful to have had the chance to work with him.”

Kennedy adds:

“Having the opportunity to work with Mark was a really cool experience. I’d been a fan of his work with Lamb Of God for a long time so I was honored when he asked if I wanted to sing on his record. Mark did a great job creating a track that would be inspiring for me to sing over. The first time I heard the music, a melody and lyric popped into my head. The creative process felt pretty effortless. I am really happy with how the song turned out overall.”


Morton will embark on a co-headlining tour with Light The Torch next month. Moon Tooth will be opening the shows. Morton’s live band will feature Mark Morales and Nick Villarreal of Sons Of Texas on vocals and bass, respectively; Doc Coyle (Bad Wolves, God Forbid) on guitar; and Art Cruz (Prong, Winds Of Plagues) on drums. There will also be additional special guest appearances to be revealed.
