Adler Record New Song as Steven Adler Marks One Year of Sobriety
It was reported just last month that Adler were back in the studio working on new material. Now, in a new interview, a couple of the band members give some details on what they have been up to. Vocalist Jacob Bunton (Lynam) and bassist Johnny Martin (The Raskins) sat down with Diamond Dave Castagno at the recent NAMM show in Anaheim, Calif. Watch the complete interview above.
Bunton talked about the recent studio session with Jeff Pilson, who also produced their 2012 album 'Back From the Dead.' "We went back in the studio and did one song," Bunton says. "[We're] just kind of taking baby steps right now. The song is finished, but it's gotta get mixed and mastered. But I don't know if we're planning on doing just that song, or doing an EP, or doing a record, or doing whatever. We are gonna do some shows; not a big tour and stuff like that, because, you know, we're just gonna see how it goes."
Back in 2013 Adler canceled a tour after drummer Steven Adler (ex-Guns 'N Roses) checked into rehab. The group took some time off after that. "Adler took a little hiatus," Bunton says. "The band never broke up. We were all really close friends. We all are very close friends."
He continues, "Steven, as everybody knows, we had a tour booked, and he had to cancel it to go deal with his health, because that's the most important thing — him being healthy. But we're happy to say, as of, I think, two weeks ago, he's one year sober. So we all took some time off."
