Jeff Loomis Will Record New Album With Keith Merrow

Jeff Loomis and Keith MerrowFormer Nevermore guitarist Jeff Loomis will join forces with Portland musician Keith Merrow to record a new album.

Merrow commented: “Very excited to let you all know, Jeff Loomis and I have decided that we’ll be doing an album together. We’ve been talking about it for a while, and it just seems right. So, we’ll start writing some new music for that, soon. I’m extremely motivated by the thought of this, and I know that the chemistry between the music… all ideas we have will make for a truly amazing album. Be stoked. I’m stoked!

So, our ‘jam’ today was mostly about this collab, and also practicing for a performance at NAMM together. I know some of you were hoping for a new video, or a a bunch of pics… but, there will be plenty of that in the future. Count on it.”

Jeff Loomis previously contributed with a guest guitar solo to Keith Merrow’s instrumental album Awaken the Stone King, which came out in January, 2011.
