Southern California’s LP3 & The Tragedy are released the video for the title track off their upcoming debut full-length Southland Hum (watch below).
Of the Mike Ott-directed clip, frontman and songwriter Louie Perez III says, “Welcome to Southern California, our beautifully broken paradise-dying of thirst. This song is an homage to its natives and transplants as they unconscionably race for fame and minimum wage…”
The band describe their sound as “two gypsy cousins and three friends (who) form a group of breakfast club rejects bringing you Americana in its darkest & youthful form.”
The five-piece, which includes Perez (son of Los Lobos guitar player Louie Perez II) bassist Ruby Rosas (daughter of Los Lobos singer Cesar Rosas), along with drummer Eric Fuller, guitarist Carlos Guzman and accordionist/organist Mike Berault, will release Southland Hum on May 3rd via Maplewood Records.
Southland Hum is now available for pre-order at MaplewoodRecords.com.
