L.S. Dunes unveil new single and video ‘Benadryl Subreddit’

Today L.S. Dunes (vocalist Anthony Green, guitarist Frank Iero, bassist Tim Payne, guitarist Travis Stever, and drummer Tucker Rule) unveil a dazzling new psyche-metal track entitled ‘Benadryl Subreddit.’ It’s the post-hardcore band’s first new music since the release of their landmark debut album, ‘2022’s Past Lives.’

‘Benadryl Subreddit’ was produced by Alex Newport (Mars Volta, Frank Turner, City & Colour) and recorded at Rancho De La Luna in Joshua Tree, California. L.S. Dunes join a long list of renowned artists who have found inspiration at the famed high-desert studio including Arctic Monkeys, Kyuss, Queens of the Stone Age, Foo Fighters, Afghan Whigs, Iggy Pop, and many others.

‘Benadryl’s’ title comes from a conversation that Mikey Way (My Chemical Romance) and I were having one night on tour about sober guys finding out legal ways of getting high without doing actual drugs and messing with their sobriety,” says Iero. “The music for this song came about when I knew we were going into the desert to record with Alex Newport at Rancho De La Luna. I had just received a new guitar in the mail from Ben Wasser at Guitarworks called ‘The Shaft’ and I got to thinking about the desert and what I thought that guitar should sound like in that setting. That riff came out immediately. ‘Benadryl Subreddit’ represents the heat of the day out in the desert, sweating bullets and going fast.”

“In the early stages of the demo, it was clear this song needed to be recorded and released sooner than many of the other songs we’ve been working on,” shares Stever. “It captures an energy for the moment. It’s hard to keep hold of the energy and aim from demo to final recordings. I feel like with Alex Newport we did it!”

Rule concurs, saying, Frank sent this infectious riff, and I immediately knew what I was going to play. The chemistry of this band is undeniable, and I love it so much.”
