BEAUMONT — Heavy metal band Red Lamb has scheduled a performance in Southeast Texas to showcase its new music and, hopefully, raise a little awareness about a cause close to the bandmembers hearts.

Red Lamb, featuring guitarist Dan Spitz, formerly of Anthrax, will perform on Wednesday, March 13, at The Gig in downtown Beaumont. Tickets are $10 in advance at www.outhousetickets.com for ages 18 and older.

Red Lamb, which released its self-titled debut album through iTunes in February 2012, is described as “explosive hard rock, pop punk, alternative rock, with a taste of thrash,” according to a press release. Along with music from the band’s debut album, Red Lamb will reportedly include five songs from the Anthrax catalog in its set for each show.

Red Lamb is comprised of Spitz on guitar, vocalist Don Chaffin, bassist Alan G. and drummer Kevan Roy.

The album was co-produced by Spitz and Dave Mustaine of Megadeth. Mustaine also co-wrote the lyrics with Spitz, and all music in Red Lamb was written by Spitz.

The music is only one aspect of the March 13 concert. The main purpose of the tour is to help raise autism awareness.

Spitz and his wife, Candi, have twin sons who are both diagnosed with autism. Many shows on the tour will have informational booths about autism, but Spitz will help spread the message through his music and his words at each show.
