Ex-The Defiled frontman Lee Villain unites with fellow Brit Luke Johnson (Amen, No Devotion, Beat Union), together with Steve Lucarelli (The Ataris) and Jaxon Moore to form new band LOWLIVES.
The band’s debut single ‘Burn Forever’ is available now via all streaming sites, after last night being premiered on the BBC Radio One Rock Show.

“Burn Forever was one of the first songs written,” states Lee Villain. “It kinda sets the tone for what we are about. Pop hooks, heavy drums, and lots of guitar noise. This band has been in the works for a long time now and I’m stoked to finally show people what we’ve been working on.”
“I wanted to write something that felt real, I wanted to work with someone where the creative relationship had chemistry,” writes Luke Johnson. “I wanted to make a band with the intention of being free and agnostic of the boundaries that define popular music genres. This is the band that makes everything I’ve ever done before it less relevant by comparison.”
LOWLIVES play their debut show at the Troubador in Los Angeles on Oct 20th, supporting Moose Blood. They will then head to the studio to finish recording their full length album in November, with producer Beau Burchell (The Bronx, Moose Blood, Saosin).
