Hear The Lucid (Fear Factory, Ex-Megadeth, Etc.) Recruit Insane Clown Posse’s Violent J For New Single “Saddle Up And Ride”


The Lucid have released a new track featuring an unexpected cameo from Violent J, who serves as one half of the infamous hip hop duo Insane Clown Posse. You can hear Violent J guesting on the below song “Saddle Up And Ride“, which also serves as the title track to The Lucid‘s new EP. A January 27th release date has been set for that outing on SpoilerHead Records.

The Lucid notably feature former Megadeth, etc. bassist David Ellefson, vocalist Vinnie Dombroski (Sponge) and drummer Mike Heller (Fear Factory, etc.) among their ranks. Guitarist Drew Fortier completes their lineup and had the following to say about this collaboration:

“We are thrilled to join forces with an iconic artist like Violent J. He added such a kick ass and dangerous element to ‘Saddle Up And Ride‘ and ‘Sweet Toof‘. J has without a doubt taken The Lucid to another level.

As far as live shows go, we had to cancel those shows back in May 2021 due to my cancer situation resulting in surgery which I have fully recovered from but with David and Mike looking to have a busy 2023 with Kings of Thrash/Dieth and Raven/Fear Factory respectively, it’s looking like the most pragmatic route would be if Vin and I team up for some acoustic shows to promote The Lucid so be on the lookout for that.”
