Birmingham, Alabama-based hard rockers LYNAM have joined the musical lineup of Vince Neil's Motley Cruise. Vince himself will perform, as will the reunited RATT, SKID ROW and SLAUGHTER.
Departing from Miami on January 24, 2008, Vince Neil's Motley Cruise will set sail for the Mayan Riviera, stopping by Key West, before making its way to Calica, Mexico! An array of exclusive events, including meet-and-greets with the artists, wet and wild shore excursions in Key West and Cozumel, and the no-limit Texas Hold 'Em charity poker tournament (with big cash prizes) and a one-of-a-kind live charity auction benefitting Vince's Skylar Neil Memorial Foundation, will also be held. All of this takes place on board a world-class Carnival cruise with fine dining and 24-hour room service, full-service casino, beautiful swimming pools, spa, gym and other great amenities.

As previously reported, CINDERELLA frontman Tom Keifer and members of HINDER will make guest appearances on the new album from LYNAM. The follow-up to last year's "Slave to the Machine" is currently being recorded with producer Jason Elgin (COLLECTIVE SOUL, MAYLENE AND THE SONS OF DISASTER) and will be mixed by Jason Elgin, Mike Shipley (GREEN DAY, DEF LEPPARD) and Beau Hill.
Led by frontman and principal songwriter Jacob Bunton, LYNAM is heavily influenced by DEF LEPPARD and has drawn comparisons to WOLFMOTHER. Since 2002, the band has self-released three albums; a fourth, 2006's "Slave to the Machine", was released after the band signed to DRT Entertainment. This album peaked at #21 on Billboard's Top Independent Albums chart and #19 on the Heatseekers chart. They have opened tour dates for bands such as SALIVA, LIVE, FUEL, and PUDDLE OF MUDD.
