Lusk was a short-lived psychedelic rock "supergroup" featuring members from Tool, Replicants, Failure and Medicine.

History[edit]

The band formed when bassist Paul D'Amour, having recently departed from Tool, and keyboardist Chris Pitman got together. Greg Edwards and Brad Laner joined them shortly afterward. Their only album Free Mars was released in 1997 on Volcano Entertainment. Though the album was not extremely successful, it was nominated for a Grammy in 1998 for Best Recording Package.

Legal troubles with their label Volcano Entertainment which was undergoing a transformation coupled with increasing activities apart from the group by all members caused Lusk to quietly disband in the late 90s.
