Following the release of his single “Fire” last month, Dion Lunadon (of A Place To Bury Strangers / The D4) returns with a brand new video premiered today via CLRVYNT. You can watch the video here. The song is from his forthcoming debut solo album, which was recorded over a three-month period in Brooklyn, NY. The album features Robi Gonzalez (APTBS) on drums and Blaze Bateh from Bambara on select tracks including “Fire”. It is available for preorders now via Bandcamp.
“With “Fire” I wanted wild and heavy guitars with heavy sentiment in the first vocal line to match. Something that grabs you and demands attention. Not background music,” Lunadon explains of the track. The album also features mixing by Chris Woodhouse (Mayyors, Ty Segall, The Intelligence, Thee Oh Sees) on select tracks including “Com/Broke”.
During a short break in touring with APTBS, Lunadon had a rush of inspiration in the form of a creative spasm — a neurotic impulse to make a batch of songs and do it right then and right there.
What resulted is quite a jump away from his work in APTBS and draws more influence from bands like Toy Love and The Gun Club, as well as New Zealand unknowns such as Gestalt and Supercar.
Dion Lunadon’s debut Self-Titled album is set for release on June 9th via Agitated Records.
