With headlines and rumors swirling all over the internet claiming that Victor Wooten has recently joined a metal band, Vic reached out to us to set the record straight and clear the air about his role with Octavision. Here is his statement:
Octavision: Please Read!
Although I enjoyed playing on this song, please know that Octavision is not my band. Octavision is not a band at all. We were all hired by Hovak Alaverdyan (the guitarist and composer) to play on one song. I love the song; I love the writing; and I loved the challenge of playing on it, but I don't want to be misrepresented only to help promote it. I love Hovak Alaverdyan and his family. We are longtime friends. He's an amazing guitarist, and I'm sure the rest of his music (once completed) will be just as amazing. But I don't know who the other musicians will be.
I'll be busy recording, touring, and promoting my next project which will be a trio featuring Dennis Chambers on drums and Bob Franceschini on Sax. We'll be touring in Europe this November starting in Milan on November 1 & 2. We'll release the record and tour throughout the U.S. in 2017. Check out www.victorwooten.com for tour dates and more.
