Looks like Michael has joined another "super-group" by the name of "Iconic" they have an albums worth of material that Sweet was involved in writing.  Sounds like they are expecting to release some videos in the near future.  Strangely enough I don't think Michael will be the lead singer on this one.  Here's who is in the group (guessing it will be a more "secular" project).

Michael Sweet guitars (and I'm guessing some background vocals at least)
Nathan James vocals (from Inglorious, TSO)
Joel Hoekstra guitars (Night Ranger, Whitesnake, Joel Hoekstra's 13)
Marco Mendoza bass (Blue Murder, John Sykes, Black Star Riders, The Dead Daisies, etc., etc.)
Tommy Aldridge drums (Black Oak Arkansas, Pat Travers, Gary Moore, Ozzy, MARS, Whitesnake)

So all rather well seasoned veterans (except the young upstart from Great Britain, Nathan James).  I'm interested to see how this sounds, and if the band sticks it out for more than one album.

And not to rag on Mike's new band before they truly get started but their is another American band (cover band from Florida) already using the less than stellar name of "Iconic".  From what I can see (just looking at their web presence the original Iconic has been around since at least 2017.

lol!  I was just surprised that Michael wasn't going to be the lead singer.

I will say this, in the last two years every time I hear about a melodic metal release coming out from a newer "Christian" band I cringe for just a second and hope it isn't Dale singing for yet another band... more than half the time it seems to be him.

I think this band could be something to check out.

If Mike isn't writing the lyrics, though, I wouldn't count on it being Christian in any form or fashion.  I would hope his influence would at least keep it clean.

According to Sweet himself he "co-wrote" on the album with the main Frontiers Records songwriter and two of the other band members.

I’m very blessed to be a part of it and to be able to work with the best of the best.
When I return, I sing the new Stryper album! It’s sounding absolutely stellar! Our best yet!! I’m very grateful for all that I’m allowed to do and never ever take it for grantedMichael Sweet...Another Supergroup (Iconic) 1f64f"

First single from the band.  It looks like Michael does quite a bit of singing on this track but Nathan's vocals are pushed forward in the mix.  I didn't notice anything offensive in the lyrics (but I wasn't listening too hard).  At first listen I kind of dig it, but this is pretty much my favorite style of music.

That's a pretty kickin' song.  The main riff reminds me of something that I just can't put my finger on.

Another new song/video from the band...this one also seems to be about running  Laughing
This time we get a shared lead vocal with Nathan and Michael.  Also a double solo with Michael and Joel.

Michael had to have surgery for a detached retina.  He did not do well with it and have to have it redone.  During the healing process, he has had to wear an eye patch.

Interesting, I did not know this. I just thought he was going for the pirate look.

He wasn't wearing it Tuesday so maybe he's healed or just wears it as needed now.
