The track appears on their debut EP “41” which will be released on August 4th. via Outerloop Group. The song is available for streaming below.

‘Pure//Imagination,’ a song that dives deep into the mind and how powerful it truly is. ‘Pure // Imagination’ encourages listeners to believe that inside your own head you can do anything, and if you pay attention and focus on what really matters, you can change the world. It just takes a little imagination.

“41” was recorded with producer Ken Susi of Unearth (The Contortionist, Madball) and features Karl Shubach of Misery Signals and Jessie Freeland of The Tony Danza Tapdance Extravaganza on the track ‘King’. Continue reading »

Lakeshore, Headed by brothers Ben and Joe Lionetti (guitarist & drummer) who originally founded the metalcore giants Emmure. have teamed up with Alternative Press for the premiere of their new music video ‘Future’. The track appears on their debut EP “41” which will be released on August 4th. via Outerloop Group. The video can be watched below.

“In a time where the world seems so divided and our generation’s words sometimes seem to fall on deaf ears, we wanted to touch on subjects that we feel strongly about as well as provide a positive message,” says Ben Lionetti about the politically tinged new video. “Regardless of race, gender, political view, the bottom line is we are all here now, we are all human beings with dreams and aspirations; and the decisions we make now directly affect the future of our world. It may sound cliche, but it’s very true. It’s a message that means a lot to the band and something that came about very naturally from writing to filming. Thank you to our friends around the world who helped us with the video we had a lot of fun making it and we hope you enjoy it!” Continue reading »

Lakeshore – “41” EP

From one band comes another, with a distinct sound, despite having founding members of another band.  Lakeshore manage to bring a sense of nostalgia and melody into their take on metal/metalcore.

For those who haven’t heard of Lakeshore but are fans of heavy music, I would imagine the name Emmure is one that does sound a bit familiar.  Brothers Ben and Jo Lionetti of Lakeshore originally founded Emmure and now have moved on to form Lakeshore bringing in Shawn Adams on vocals and friends Chris Segovia on bass and guitarist Mitch LoBuglio.  For their debut seven song ep 41 the band brought in some heavyweight talent as it was recorded with producer Ken Susi of Unearth and features Karl Shubach of Misery Signals and Jessie Freeland of the Tony Danza Tapdance Extravaganza guesting on the song “Kings”.  This summer Lakeshore will be joining the Warped Tour for some dates in July around the time 41 comes out.

Going into this knowing the Emmure history can certainly set expectations about what is to come but Lakeshore is a different band with a different view on songwriting.  “Heart (To the Fans)” opens up the ep and starts out with a bit of longer intro complete with mysterious ambient music, distorted voices, and some pounding drums that suggest something much heavier is to come.  From the beginning of verse sections, the vocals and structure of the song remind me a bit of the band Blindside, which is a good thing.  Piercing clean vocals, soaring chorus emphasized with screamed vocals, and buzzing guitars that shift into heavy chords are all found here.  In fact, the song does bring back a bit of nostalgia for older, heavy alternative/nu-metal, heavy enough to keep one’s interest but accessible enough for those not metal fans.
