After months of speculation, Rock Star Supernova, the all-star band featuring Mötley Crüe drummer Tommy Lee, former Guns N' Roses guitarist Gilby Clarke and ex-Metallica bassist Jason Newsted have embraced Toronto native Lukas Rossi as their lead vocalist. The new quartet are in the studio with producer Butch Walker (Avril Lavigne, Pink, Bowling For Soup) to record their Epic Records debut. The album is scheduled for a November 21st release.

Rossi joins the group after their exhaustive lead singer search, a quest that spanned 25,000 entrants, 22 cities and 6 continents. The band spent the Summer assessing 15 finalists on everything from songwriting skills to live performance.
In January 2007, Rock Star Supernova will hit the road for their first worldwide tour. Supporting will be The Panic Channel, which features three former members of Jane's Addiction and "Rock Star: Supernova" co-host Dave Navarro. Also on the bill will be fan favorites from the show, backed by the House Band. The tour kicks off with two inaugural shows in Las Vegas on New Year's Eve and New Year's Day, then moves on to the Hard Rock in Miami, Florida on January 16th for a 27-city trek, culminating at the Long Beach Arena in Southern California on February 27th.
The band did only few gigs. Now they are at something else.
