In 1994, Alice in Chains’ Layne Staley, Pearl Jam’ Mike McCready, Screaming Trees’ Barrett Martin and The Walkabouts’ John Baker Saunders came together to form Mad Season. The band released their only album, Above, the following year, but put things on hold soon after. Life took its toll, and Staley drifted away. The band tried to record a follow-up to Above in the late 90s, but the personal troubles of Staley and the death of Saunders in 1999 put the band to rest. Staley would eventually pass away in 2002, and though Mad Season had worked on a sequel to Above, the tracks became lost. On this year April 2nd, Mad Season will release a deluxe reissue of Above, complete with unreleased tracks from the unfinished second album. McCready and Martin regrouped last year and went back to the rough-cut songs, and former Screaming Trees frontman Mark Lanegan came onboard to write lyrics and sing on three tracks. Lanegan takes control of “Locomotive,” which was intended to be on the band's second album. Listen below.

The deluxe reissue of Above will include two CDs and one DVD and features the original studio album, previously unreleased tracks intended for the band's second album, and a full concert video of the band’s last show ever performed.  Pre-order Above deluxe reissue on iTunes/Amazon
