Lynch Mob, which released its last album, “Babylon,” on Oct. 20, 2023, will launch its farewell tour in January 2024. Titled “The Final Ride,” the tour celebrating the George Lynch-led band’s 35-year legacy is expected to conclude in March 2025 on the Monsters of Rock Cruise.
“After 35 years since the inception of Lynch Mob, I feel the time is right to let this chapter of my musical life fade off into the sunset,” Lynch said. “I feel the timing is right because of the solidarity and camaraderie of our current lineup. It ensures that we’re leaving a powerful legacy with no regrets.
“Jimmy D’Anda has been my partner and brother for many decades. Jaron Gulino feels like he was designed in a laboratory to be the perfect bassist for this band. Gabriel Colon defies every lead singer stereotype by being one of the sweetest, kindest and most humble lead singer I’ve ever worked with, yet goes out every night and morphs into a stage stalking, golden throated lord.
“We laugh hard, work hard and know we can step on to any stage at any time and own it. With our latest record, I feel at peace knowing that we’ve documented the final chapter in the 35 year legacy of the Mob.”
Including “Babylon,” Lynch Mob’s discography totals 14 releases, including eight studio albums, two live records and four EPs. Fans can expect to hear new tracks from “Babylon” on the farewell tour, as well as classic songs from the many decades of Lynch.

“There’s been so many iterations of Lynch Mob since the first lineup in 1989 of Oni Logan, Mick Brown, Anthony Esposito and myself,” Lynch said. “Putting Lynch Mob together was just an extension of what I’d always strived for in a band: the best possible musicians, chemistry and brotherhood. My bands have not only been my best friends but also family. When we come up together and work hard and struggle together, we create a bond that lasts a lifetime. I think that’s the thing I love the most about my musical journey … creating music in the studio, stepping on stage, and sharing that bond with my friends through music. Thank you to everyone who has been in my band. I really feel it’s ours.”
Lynch formed Lynch Mob in 1989 after he parted ways with his former band Dokken. Its debut release, “Wicked Sensation,” was met with critical and fan acclaim, and went on to be certified gold in sales by the RIAA.
