What started out as a fun side-project for Sevendust guitarist John Connolly and bassist Vince Hornsby, Alter Bridge/Creed drummer Scott Phillips, and Tremonti/Creed guitarist Eric Friedman has become Projected. The band's debut album, Human, will be released Sept. 18 on Connolly's own Yaya Papu LLC. label.

Produced by Connolly and Elvis Baskette (Ratt, Puddle of Mudd), the majority of the album's music and vocals were recorded at Studio 1119, Connolly's studio in his home office ("when it's not being used by his wife to pay the bills or his daughter to play Webkins," he jokes).

In this Noisecreep exclusive, we bring you the lyric video premiere for Projected's scorching track, "Watch It Burn."

For Human's artwork, Projected reached out to their fans on Facebook to submit their original concepts. The winner's design graces the final album cover, while 16 runner-ups will have their artwork included in the CD case and on the back cover. One "Wild Card" winning submission will be seen under the disc inside the case. All finalists are receiving a "Top Tier Bundle" music and merchandise package, which includes the CD, T-shirt, autographed poster, sticker, and lifetime VIP laminate, all of which will arrive two weeks before the album is released. All of the submitted artwork can be seen on the band's website, www.projectedband.com.

Human will hit stores on Sept. 18 via Yaya Papu LLC.
