T.R.A.M. – the new supergroup featuring members of The Mars Volta, Animals as Leaders, and Suicidal Tendencies – will be issuing 'Lingua Franca,' their debut album, on Feb. 28.

Comprised of such renowned musically proficient artists as Adrian Terrazas (The Mars Volta) on saxophone, flute, bass clarinet and percussion, Javier Reyes (Animals as Leaders) on guitars, Tosin Abasi (Animals as Leaders) on guitars and Eric Moore (Suicidal Tendencies) on drums, the band formed in 2010 and made their live debut at SXSW last year.

Terrazas states: "Tosin Abasi and I were originally introduced by a mutual friend, Raanen Bozzio, last summer. This meeting also served as my first introduction to Animals As Leaders and Javier Reyes. Since then, Abasi, Reyes and I have developed a great relationship. We got together almost every day to try out ideas and after a month we had already formulated a majority of the record. At this point we contacted Eric Moore, an incredible drummer and the most joyful person to be around, and soon everything we had envisioned rhythmically came together on our first meeting/recording session (at the Farias productions studios) on what is now T.R.A.M."
