What happens when you collide some of the biggest heavy metal musicians to shout the truth to the world? You start a new band called RED LAMB. Dan Spitz, formerly of Anthrax, and Dave Mustaine of Megadeth, who together have sold records approaching 50 million copies, are telling the story of what it's like for a family to live with identical/mirror image twins with Autism. Dan Spitz and his wife, Candi, have identical twins with Autism and are vocal advocates about the cause and taking the power of music to now help educate awareness on a global level as never before.

The new video for the song ‘Puzzle Box’ is a song with lyrics co-written by Mustaine and Spitz and with all music by Spitz is gaining a foothold in the music community rather swiftly and taking a stance in the usual heavy metal fashion of pulling no punches. In addition to these two legendary musicians of The Big 4, they have recruited Grammy winner Chris Vrenna of Marilyn Manson as well as famed Grammy nominated producer Johnny K to mix the song.

Dan Spitz was one of the co-founders of the legendary band Anthrax, a band now included in the Big 4 (Metallica, Anthrax, Megadeth and Slayer), who single-handedly changed the face of heavy metal music by breaking down many barriers once never allowed. Anthrax first mixed hip-hop and heavy metal with the legendary collaboration on their track, ‘Bring the Noise’, as well as the first hip-hop/heavy metal world tour featuring Public Enemy and Anthrax. Now Spitz has returned to music after his hiatus in Switzerland, to become a master watchmaker of the world's most complicated mechanical wristwatches, to once again pave new ground for a great cause.

Candi Spitz devotes all of her free to time to the largest Autism non-profit, Autism Speaks www.autismspeaks.org. She can be seen on every billboard, print ad, newscast and radio ad. Candi and RED LAMB have recruited Autism Speaks co-founders Bob and Suzanne Wright to be in the video for ‘Puzzle Box’. Bob Wright was the CEO and Chairman for NBC Universal for more than 20 years, who also has a grandson with Autism. The extensive filming of ‘Puzzle Box’ was done over a three month period and includes footage from the “Walk Now for Autism Speaks” in Palm Beach, Florida where thousands were filmed for the video. Other notable people in the video include WPTV Channel 5 anchor Mike Williams and television and film actors who open the video.

Dan Spitz says, “It's time for someone in music to wake the world up to Autism. We have Holly Robinson Peete in film, we have vocal people in NASCAR and of course Dan Marino and others in sports. Now it's time for someone who lives it to speak the truth to the people in true metal fashion. I come from a time when the lyrics of a song represented truth that can certainly change the world. Now it's time to let people know we are in epidemic form with Autism, as 1 in every 88th child born (1 in every 54th boy) will be diagnosed in the spectrum. I feel that if we don’t do something now about this the Autism epidemic, more will people will suffer the consequences. Autism is on your block now.”

The band RED LAMB is a self-funded band with no outside support, working on the principle of releasing music on their own via iTunes/Amazon through Tunecore distribution.
