L.S. Dunes share debut album ‘Past Lives’

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 released ‘Past Lives,’ their highly anticipated debut album via Fantasy Records.

Produced by Will Yip (Turnstile, Circa Survive, Quicksand) and recorded at his Studio 4 Recording in Philadelphia, ‘Past Lives’ navigates themes of fearlessness, dependency, nonconformity, and impermanence in a boundary-pushing synthesis of post-hardcore and punk – that has quickly established L.S. Dunes as a commanding new arrival. From the gripping, theatrical opener ‘2022,’ and the blazing ‘Bombsquad,’ to the pummeling, expansive ‘Permanent Rebellion,’ and the disarming album closer, ‘Sleep Cult,’ ‘Past Lives’ is an electrifying and emotional ride.

After the shock of the pandemic shutdown, close friends and mutual admirers urgently realized that “tomorrow” is not promised. “We never knew if we would ever get to play these songs together; in fact, none of us lifelong musicians really knew if we’d ever be able to play music for a live audience ever again,” Iero recounts. ‘Permanent Rebellion’ is about taking back what is rightfully yours,” Rule added. “We wanted to do something where you can hear all our bands in it and yet, not have it sound like any one in particular. Our roots are punk rock and hardcore, and the vibe is hope for all the lost souls.”
