Lund Bros

Big Big news!

Though Lund Bros have been in large part a recording band rather than a live band over the five year period from 2012 to 2018 and were highly productive in this capacity having released two full-length records - Sanguine and Great Event Syndrome  - we realize fans would like to see the band live again - some of you having made this painfully clear!  Alright already! we heard you!

THUS: Sean and I have commenced rehearsals at Demon Studios for a live show including material off both of our latest records, which have never had the benefit of live CD release parties.  These songs are proving to register high on the rock meter and be really potent in the live power trio format.  These rehearsals have included a pool of at least 30 or so songs, reflecting our entire catalog, even going back as far as the Loving Cup era.  In short, we are running through of a lot of old faves that haven't seen daylight in a very long time.  This seems most appropriate given that it's the 20th Anniversary of the release of the Loser record.  As a result, there are going to be quite a few off of that one and perhaps even some stuff earlier than that.  There may be some surprises.

Once we decide on which 12- 15 of these rehearsed songs rise to the top for a live set, a bassist (hopefully Gwon, who has continued to play live with several other prominent NW bands during the Bros' studio hermitage) will soon be joining us to prepare for live shows to be booked in late summer and fall of this year.  These rehearsals have proved to be incredibly exciting after a six-year hiatus from live performance!  Interestingly, there seems to be a naturally evolving tendency at these rehearsal to play things a bit more raw, free-form, and bluesy, sometimes taking the songs off onto some very interesting tangents (no pun intended).  

Stay tuned (or at least a half step flat) and thanks for waiting!
