Percy Jones and PAKT Announce Album, Tour Dates

PAKTFretless bass wizard Percy Jones is taking part in a brand new supergroup called PAKT. The band is an instrumental quartet completed by guitarist Alex Skolnick, drummer Kenny Grohowski, and guitarist Tim Motzer.

“PAKT recalls the fearless attitude and daring approach that originally defined progressive music: where the magic of the moment always triumphed over preconception,” a press release states. “Templates be damned … this music blazes its own path! This is truly exquisite fare, serving as a reminder to aficionados of what initially drew them to this most creative, visionary of genres.”

The band will have an album out in July with a handful of tour dates to support the release. Hear about it from Jones and the band with a sneak peek of the music:
