L.S. DUNES SET TO JOIN PIERCE THE VEIL ON THE 23-DATE JAWS OF LIFE TOUR NOV 4 – DEC 8
Recently, L.S. Dunes: vocalist Anthony Green, guitarist Frank Iero, bassist Tim Payne, guitarist Travis Stever, and drummer Tucker Rule announced the upcoming release of Lost Songs: Lines and Shapes, a raw and radically revealing version of their acclaimed debut album, 2022’s Past Lives, due November 10, 2023. Today, as a little taste of what’s to come, the celebrated hard-core band has shared “Old Wounds” DEMO, a stripped-back version of the fan favorite released this past summer. While not included in the Lost Songs collection, the vulnerable and illuminating “Old Wounds” DEMO is another brilliant look into the creative process that features Anthony Green’s beautifully exposed vocals and the haunting, intricate guitar work of Travis Stever. Listen to “Old Wounds” DEMO HERE.
The official video features behind-the-scenes footage of L.S. Dunes working at Rancho De La Luna in Joshua Tree, California, the renowned desert studio where “Old Wounds” was originally recorded. Watch the “Old Wounds” DEMO official video HERE.
Travis Stever on “Old Wounds” DEMO:
“The original guitar part for “Old Wounds” was conceived in the L.S. Dunes text thread. It was an old riff that I had never used. I stumbled on it and started working on it again and sent it in the middle of the night. Tim was the only one still awake… Tim had a positive response and showed enthusiasm, so I kept sending the riff ideas to him and he would give his opinion and notes. The next morning, I ran to my studio space and recorded the guitar parts. At this point we had numerous instrumental ideas, and it was up to Anthony what songs we would choose for the desert sessions. He sent back the most beautiful and haunting vocals and lyrics to the guitar ideas that would become “Old Wounds”. It then became clear that that would be one of the songs we needed to record.”
The upcoming new album, Lost Songs: Lines and Shapes features early, stripped-down versions of all Past Lives’ 11 tracks. Listening to these songs in their hyper-intense, original form provides a new, completely fresh view into Past Lives, while the uninitiated will appreciate it for what it is, a sterling artistic statement in its own right. Pre-order Lost Songs: Lines and Shapes HERE. Fans can also pre-order the Past Lives Deluxe Edition, a limited, 2-LP vinyl special package which includes both the original album and Lost Songs: Lines And Shapes, exclusively via the band’s online store HERE.
