The Lords of Altamont strike with an unapologetic conviction built up from twenty-two years of soul seasoning and nonstop rock action, fine-tuning their iconic fuel-injected sound.
Recorded during a worldwide pandemic with members across the globe, their newest album, Tune In, Turn On, Electrify!, out July 9 through Heavy Psych Sounds, is not only an experiment in creativity but also a testament to the Lords’ brotherhood, dedication to ‘the old ways,’ and paying homage to their sonic forefathers.
New Noise are proud to premiere the group’s latest single, “Living With The Squares,” below:
On the single’s release, the Lords state:
“‘Living With The Squares’ gives a classic Stooges treatment to The Savages’ quote “the world ain’t round, it’s square.” Two chords are all you need to set the mood of the ever-present dissonance of an ‘us versus them’ narrative.
Originally written and recorded by Lords of Altamont veterans Johnny Devilla, Spencer Robinson, John Tyree and Jake Cavaliere, this once-shelved tale has Dani, Rob, Barry and Jake pouring fuel into it for another new ride.”
Tune In, Turn On, Electrify! takes a ride through the mental landscape of these four musicians: thrusting raw, aggressive garage punk in your face, then flips the script inviting you on elaborate psychedelic trips. Get kicked in the teeth with “We’ll Never Leave (This World Alive),” fight the demons in your head with “Mud,” then come down easy with “Soul In Flames.”
Formed in 1999, the Lords of Altamont, having gone through multiple line ups over the years, retain loyalty to their garage punk roots while evolving into heavier grooves. Never compromising that unmistakable Lords attitude, Dani, Rob and Barry having earned their colors tenfold, bring a gritty collective of experience and talent to join Jake on this journey of no-nonsense auditory exploits.
