METALLICA bassist Robert Trujillo‘s MASS MENTAL project will play a one-off concert in London, England at The Underworld on March 13. Joining Trujillo in the MASS MENTAL lineup will be Armand Sabal-Lecco (PAUL SIMON) on bass, Benji Webbe (SKINDRED) and Whitfield Crane (UGLY KID JOE) on vocals and Brant Bjork (KYUSS, FU MANCHU) on drums.
MASS MENTAL was founded in 1998 by Trujillo, formerly of SUICIDAL TENDENCIES, along with SKINDRED singer Clive “Benji” Webbe, formerly of DUB WAR. In 1999, the band released “How To Write Love Songs”, along with the live album “Live In Tokyo”. Both CDs were made available exclusively in Japan. Shortly thereafter, MASS MENTAL broke up, allowing the bandmembers to return to their main projects. In 2002, MASS MENTAL reunited briefly with Roy Mayorga (STONE SOUR, SOULFLY) playing drums, although no new material resulted.
