On the heels of the band’s self-titled single, rock and metal supergroup Projected has released “Stain,” the latest track from its upcoming album “Hypoxia,” out June 24, 2022, via Rat Pak Records.
The charged-up single comes in right away with a galloping snare beat before the band soars into the chorus, with Connolly’s vocals and layered guitars setting the bedrock. The track juxtaposes a message of navigating a wide array of emotions with a video of a lone astronaut, trying to find his way after a brutal touchdown on a foreign planet.
The upcoming album features 13 new songs from the group consisting of Sevendust guitarist John Connolly, Alter Bridge/Creed drummer Scott Phillips, Sevendust bassist Vince Hornsby and Tremonti guitarist Eric “E-ROCK” Friedman.
“‘Hypoxia’ was the last song written for the record,” Connolly said. “‘Stain’ was the first. This was the song that started the whole process and set the tone. It is a song of hope and possibilities.”
“Hypoxia” is available for pre-order here in various configurations, including CD, vinyl and cassette bundles.

2. Dead Weight
3. The Thing That’s Real
5. Take Aim
7. Without You
