If you haven’t heard of The Lancasters yet, you’re missing out big time. This three-piece rock band have the ability to combine old and new, tradition and innovation in a blend that ranges between the best ‘70s British rock and more recent expressions of volume-driven rock’n’roll sounds.
New Noise are proud to premiere the group’s latest single, “Scallywag,” below:
Following up their 2019 debut self-titled full length and recent singles “Midget” and “CCTV,” The Lancasters show once more that they learned the lessons from classic bands such as CCR, The Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, and The Kinks, and that they’re not afraid to reinterpret the genre according to their views.
“Scallywag” destroys superstitions, ridicules ‘clairvoyants,’ and laughs off the absurdities that too often still appear on TV and other media. The track renews the collaboration between The Lancasters and the California-based label Fuzzy Cracklins Presents, alongside a new partnership with Rivertale Productions.
On the release of “Scallywag,” The Lancasters state:
“‘Scallywag’ talks about the lies that people accept as words of truth, superstitions and other inaccuracies perpetuated by the media, the internet, and other scallywags.
We hope for a future where people can get high on their own trips and visions, distrusting of all ‘clairvoyants’ who shower their audience with specious predictions for the future.”
