Today we're super excited to bring you a new song from the always fantastic Lakes. Jump to the replies to stream, "1992," which is off the band's upcoming album, Fire Ahead, that will be released on July 22nd. Once you get done listening, head over to the band's site to download the track for free.
Lakes are working on a new full-length, which "won't be out for awhile." In the meantime, the band will release a stripped down EP including garage versions of the album's songs and a few b-sides. Watch a video with details in the replies.
American Dream Records will be releasing The Graduate's debut album, Anhedonia, on vinyl, as well as Lakes' The Agreement, and Ace Enders' upcoming new album Gold Rush. Specific dates will be announced soon. In the mean time, you can follow the label on Twitter here.
Head to the replies to watch two covers of Gasoline Heart songs, both of which are done by Lakes. The covers are entries for a contest where you can win a free Gasoline Heart T-shirt and a copy of their latest album Nostalgia Ain't What It Used To Be. Word up to all the musicians out there - this is your chance to win some free merch.
Edit: The chat is now over. I'd like to extend the biggest thanks to all of the guys for coming and chatting it up on the site with everyone. If you haven't picked up The Agreement yet, it's about time you did.
Lakes will be chatting in this thread at 9 pm EST. Be sure to swing by and tell the guys how awesome their new record is.
Today we are bringing you a complete stream of the new Lakes record, The Agreement. This album was well worth the wait and if you don't believe me, check out Thomas's review here. You can listen to it on their AP.net profile and leave your thoughts in the replies.
This has been a great year for Seth Roberts of Lakes. He released a fantastic EP, Photographs, on The Militia Group in September, and now he is a proud father. Seth and Skylana's baby girl, Arabella, was born over the weekend. Congratulations to the Roberts family!
