Listening to XM's Ethel yesterday, the DJ came on and announced that Dave Navarro has a new band. The Panic Channel, as the new project is known, consists of Stephen Perkins, Chris Chaney, and Steve Isaacs, in addition to Navarro.
Their Myspace page has three songs listed for free streaming, and from the best I can tell, their sound is pretty much a fusion of new-metal with neo-grunge. For some reason I couldn't help but thinking of both Default and Velvet Revolver while I was listening. An oxymoron? Perhaps.
In my brief perusal of the news section of The Panic Channel's website, I couldn't find an album release date. However, their first single hits radio stations May 16.
