Several members of the hard rock community are mobilizing to help those in need by recording a benefit track to raise funds for those affected by Hurricane Sandy. The collective, which consists of Black Label Society‘s Zakk Wylde and JD Deservio, Sevendust‘s Morgan Rose, Candlebox‘s Kevin Martin and New York outfit the Infinite Staircase, will record the as-yet-untitled song with plans to release it as an iTunes exclusive on Jan. 8.

The group has already booked studio time this week at Architekt Music, the state of the art recording facility where Sevendust tracked their ‘Black Out the Sun’ disc and where the Infinite Staircase are currently recording, and they’ll use the space for free as engineer Mike Ferretti has agreed to donate services to make the project come to life.

All of the musicians involved have close ties to the New York and New Jersey areas, with either family or friends living in the vicinity of the Hurricane Sandy destruction.

Black Label Society just finished dates in Canada and South America and they’re currently planning a new DVD titled ‘Unblackened’ that’s expected to be recording next year. Martin has been touring with Candlebox and is currently mulling a second disc from his other project the Gracious Few. Rose and his Sevendust crew will be issuing the new album ‘Black Out the Sun’ in March, and the Infinite Staircase are currently recording their follow-up to 2009’s ‘The Road Less Traveled,’ with Rose producing and playing drums on the album.
