KINLIN, the new Florida-based band featuring YNGWIE MALMSTEEN drummer and acclaimed session musician Patrick Johansson along with former members of 5SKIN, has been confirmed for Band Camp 2007, set to take place April 26 at the Hard Rock Live in Hollywood, Florida. Also scheduled to appear are PUDDLE OF MUDD, CHEVELLE, THREE DAYS GRACE, and BUCKCHERRY.
KINLIN's self-titled debut album was released in March 2006. Recorded and mixed in Fort Lauderdale, Florida by guitarist/vocalist Dewayne Hart, the CD was described in a press release as "in-your-face hard rock that combines influences of the four members' totally different music styles." The group's lineup is rounded out by guitarist Tom Lynch and bassist Dave Thomas.
Johansson toured with W.A.S.P. early last year as the band's session drummer.
