Lamb of God’s Mark Morton has stripped things down for his new EP, Ether, which he’s previewed with “All I Had to Lose,” featuring Mark Morales.
The LoG guitarist displays his fingerpicking on the sorrowful song, which evokes noughties-era alternative rock balladry, while Morales—the singer of Sons of Texas—delivers emotive vocals.
“All I Had to Lose” is one of five songs on Ether, which is a primarily acoustic—and therefore, in Morton’s words, “more mellow”—collection. The release was inspired by stripped-down sets Morton played last spring and summer in support of his solo album, Anesthetic, which he released in March 2019.
Ether is out next Friday via Rise Records. Listen to “All I Had to Lose” below:
