West Coast based raucous rockers LOWLIVES have released a new two track single entitled “Gravity”, with B-Side “Hate, Greed, Liars, Thieves”, along with a video for the lead track, which the band themselves got their hands dirty creating.
“Being a DIY band and always needing favors we figured we’d give our poor friends a break this time around,”
explains drummer Luke Johnson.
“Soooooo….Here you go, our first ever fully written, directed and edited music video. It’s all shot on two budget Go-Pros with me as cameraman and Lee as the subject. The location was up in the mountains near Big Bear California. We used bits of drum gear and old microphone stands to clip cameras in creative places. We probably ran and rode about 25 miles that day.”
“The concept is basically a dumbed down Ground Hog day that follows the theme of the song. A love and attraction to another that feels like a gravitational pull so powerful it can move heaven and earth. Lee is caught in a loop trying to get back to his beloved wife but keeps waking up back in the forest. Bonus points to anyone who can see where I left the ladder in shot ;)”
Formed by former members of The Defiled, Amen, No Devotion and the Ataris, the band released their debut EP “Burn Forever” before embarking on their first ever tour. Scheduled to support THE USED, the band found themselves in Europe with no shows to play after the headliners were focred to cancel last minute. Immediately getting on the phone and calling in favours from contacts they’d built in their respective former bands, the determined four piece managed to book themselves two weeks’ worth of shows including a packed out headline appearance at London’s Black Heart, and managing to fit in a live recording session for Daniel P Carter’s Radio One Rockshow at the BBC’s Maida Vale studios.
LOWLIVES returned to Europe that summer for the rescheduled THE USED tour and festival appearances including Reading & Leeds.
The band returned to the UK and Europe once again in February 2020, before the world changed, for a run of dates supporting NEW YEAR’S DAY and following up with another new two tracker “Bones”.
