VH1’s ‘Supergroup’ To Premiere In May –

VH1 has reportedly set a May 18 tentative premiere date for “Supergroup”, the new reality show starring Scott Ian (ANTHRAX; guitar), Ted Nugent (guitar), Evan Seinfeld (BIOHAZARD; bass), Sebastian Bach (ex-SKID ROW; vocals) and Jason Bonham (BONHAM, UFO, FOREIGNER; drums). Filming for the program commenced on February 22 in Las Vegas, with the premise being to lock several musicians in a house for 10 days and get them to write and record some new original music. Originally the network wanted the group to record an album, but at this time it is understood they will settle for one song and hope for more. In addition to the five musicians, star manager Doc McGhee (KISS) is in charge and is also living in the house for the duration of filming/recording.

Commented VH1 executive Michael Hirschorn, “What I liked about ‘Supergroup’ was that is combined elements that have worked so well for us (before), with an organic music idea.”

The musicians will endure boot-camp-style training from McGhee in preparation for a concert at the Empire Ballroom on March 5 (where they will perform a version of the ANTHRAX classic “Only”, according to Ian).
