New Music from L.S. Dunes “2022” on Fantasy/Concord

 

 

New Single “2022”

L.S. Dunes: guitarist Frank Iero (My Chemical Romance), guitarist Travis Stever (Coheed & Cambria), vocalist Anthony Green (Circa Survive), bassist Tim Payne (Thursday), and drummer Tucker Rule (Thursday) have shared “2022,” the blistering and dramatic new track off their upcoming debut album, PAST LIVES, due November 11th, 2022 via Fantasy Records/Concord.

 

Anthony Green on “2022”:

“I wrote 2022 when I was struggling to communicate the pain that I was in during the pandemic. I survived an overdose the previous year and was feeling like I would never be free of the obsession to get high, or just get out of my own skin and that I was only going to continue to hurt everyone I loved. It was a cop-out and easier for me to write a song rather than get honest and real with the people in my life–cry for help in a way. If there’s a positive take away, it’s that it’s never a burden to the people you love to share your feelings no matter how dark or painful it might be.”

 

2022” follows the late August release of the band’s first single “Permanent Rebellion,” which drew praise from Stereogum, NME, Consequence, Ones to Watch, Brooklyn Vegan, Revolver, Alternative Press, and Loudwire among many others.

Watch the music video for “2022”

 

LS. Dunes made their highly anticipated debut performance this past weekend at Chicago’s RIOT FEST. Playing to a packed, early afternoon crowd, the band ran through several songs from the new album, a taste of the energetic, cathartic shows fans will experience on their upcoming tour.

 

The impetus for the trippy “2022” video has its own story. At the conclusion of the video shoot for “Permanent Rebellion,” Frank Iero, jet-lagged from a sold-out stadium show in Germany the night before with his other band, noticed that the shadow reflections playing on the white walls of the studio made the band look like a “hippy band that rips” and the concept for “2022” visual was born. The band shot footage with the esteemed My Good Eye Visuals (Clutch, GWAR, Killswitch Engage) and then sent it to director Robby Staebler (drummer extraordinaire for the mighty All Them Witches) with one piece of direction only: We want it to feel like “the song that saved your life, while you are on LSD… in the desert.”
