L.S. Dunes: guitarist Frank Iero (My Chemical Romance), guitarist Travis Stever (Coheed & Cambria), vocalist Anthony Green (Circa Survive), bassist Tim Payne and drummer Tucker Rule (Thursday) have shared Bombsquad, an explosive new track from their upcoming debut album, ‘PAST LIVES‘, due November 11 via Fantasy Records.
The band also released a blazing live performance video for the track.
Anthony Green onÂ Bombsquad:Â â€œThe lyrics forÂ BombsquadÂ came from a poem that I wrote around the time of the January 6thÂ insurrection. In the midst of the pandemic, people were trying to take down the government because a ConMan politician couldnâ€™t admit that he had lost the election, not for any legitimate grievance or protest. The song is a rage against societyâ€™s depressing and destructive forces.â€
The performance clipÂ Bombsquad â€“ Live at DreamlandÂ was recorded at Dreamland Studios in Woodstock, NY, where some of the bandâ€™s favourite ever records (from Sunny Day Real Estate to The National to The Hold Steady) were created.Â L.S. DunesÂ channelled the power of the former churchâ€™s iconostasis into spiritual consciousness via the songâ€™s “Leora”Â refrain in the chorus.
Green elaborates:Â â€œLeoraâ€ is an age-old word meaning â€˜of the lightâ€™ or â€˜compassionâ€™, which I think is something we need to call and reflect on for growth and unity.â€
BombsquadÂ follows the bandâ€™s previously released tracks,Â 2022,Â andÂ Permanent Rebellion,Â which have drawn praise fromÂ Stereogum, NME, Consequence, Ones to Watch, Brooklyn Vegan, Revolver, Alternative Press,Â andÂ LoudwireÂ among many others.
L.S. DunesÂ made their highly anticipatedÂ debut performances at Chicagoâ€™sÂ RIOT FESTÂ on September 15Â and Sacramentoâ€™sÂ AFTERSHOCK FESTIVALÂ on October 8.Â Both dates featured songs from the new album, a taste of the energetic, cathartic shows fans will experience on their upcoming headlining U.S. tour which begins November 12.Â Â
