Last month SEVENDUST guitarist JOHN CONNOLLY‘S side project PROJECTED released their second album “Ignite My Insanity” through RatPak Records. “Ignite My Insanity” is a double disc headbanger that links heavy riffs with melodic hooks and choruses.

In the conversation we spoke about the new PROJECTED record, writing, touring and the future of the mighty SEVENDUST.
