Singer Jeff Scott Soto seems to have reactivated his project with former MEGADETH BASSIST David Ellefson.
Back in March, Soto and Ellefson announced that they had been collaborating under the name ELLEFSON-SOTO. The duo’s version of the RIOT song “Swords & Tequila” was also released across all digital streaming outlets via Ellefson’s Combat Records.
Yesterday (Tuesday, January 18), Soto shared a photo on Instagram of him with Ellefson along with the caption: “Something brewing in Los Angeles today….#davidellefson”.
When Ellefson’s collaboration with Soto was first announced, David said in a statement: “Jeff and I have been friends for so many years that it’s great to finally collaborate on some material together. He has such a distinctive voice and perfect style for some new ideas my guitarist Andy Martongelli and I have been composing. We are excited about the progress of it all and thought this would be a perfect time to give a little sneak preview.”
At the time, Jeff added: “As COVID-19 became a big negative around the globe, it actually offered many artists a chance to finally collaborate with one another that might have never happened otherwise… As I have known David for many years, I knew from our other efforts outside of our day jobs that we could come up with some badass jams…and here we are, letting you in on our cool little secret.”
