WhoCares, the musical project featuring current and former members of metal and hard rock gods Black Sabbath, Deep Purple, Iron Maiden and Metallica, will release their debut single in North America this June. According to Black-Sabbath.com, "Out Of My Mind/Holy Water" will be available in the States on CD single on June 27. Proceeds will be donated to help rebuild a music school in Gyumri, Armenia.
"Out Of My Mind" features a who's who of metal giants, including singer Ian Gillan (Deep Purple), guitarists Tony Iommi (Black Sabbath) and Mikko "Linde" Lindstrm (HIM), bassist Jason Newsted (Metallica, Voivod), drummer Nicko McBrain (Iron Maiden) and keyboardist Jon Lord (Deep Purple). As such, it is a reunion of sorts on multiple fronts. Gillan fronted Black Sabbath for the Born Again album in the early '80s. Gillan is also reunited with founding Deep Purple member Jon Lord, who retired from the band in 2002. "Holy Water" also features Gillan and Iommi, though with a different supporting cast.
As previously announced, the single will be released in Europe on May 24 and available for digital download on May 6.
