Default Our new album is out - Info and music video :-)

OK, time for a little self-pimpage :-)

For those who don't know it (which I gather is a lot of you :-), I play drums in a rock band called Lucky Lew, and our album Beauty In Aggression was released a little while back. We had some distribution problems, but it's not finally available everywhere!

The album is recorded at RadioStar Studios in California and produced by Sylvia Massy (who's previously worked with Tool, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Johnny Cash, System Of A Down, etc, etc).

For those who want previews, there are three full streaming tracks available from our MySpace and Facebook pages (along with every other site where we're registered :-). We've also cut together a music video of our most mellow track, No. 3:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=akvSy-dsb4U
The video is set to footage from the album release concert and the recording sessions.

The album is available from many of the big download stores, including:
iTunes
Amazon
Play.com

As for a physical CD, we don't have distribution in many parts of the world (yet), but I know that CDON.eu can ship to a few European countries:
CDON

And of course, if you're in a country that has access to Spotify, we're there too:

Pimp away Naigewron!!

Nice sound you've got there and everything from the music to the video
to the album artwork has been tightly produced. Great work, I'll be
keeping an eye on you guys.

Good luck with everything!

Naige, love the video, love the song, love the story so far. As you know, I've been keeping tabs on progress from the start. I'm pretty good at sniffing out a promising act, & yours has all the ingredients needed to fly. Although song no:3 is your laid back track, it oozes quality in every aspect. A very satisfying listening & visual experience. Your singer has a sassy voice that I find extremely attractive (visual's pretty good too, ahem!). Good lucky you!

Oh wow - amazing what good mastering can do to bring out the best in the instruments and voice. Drumming was so rock solid and organised. The whole band is. Vocalist has an excellent voice.

Thanks guys! Good to see it seems we're doing something that other people like too, not just us :-)

Yeah, that tom rhythm developed into a sort of theme for the drum track in this song.

And yeah, that's indeed Amsterdam in the video, it was the first stop on our journey to California :-)

Yeah, I think you're one of our biggest fans KIS. Hopefully you're right; and we're just getting started on the journey. We're currently trying to book a tour of the country. It's not easy, but the album and the good reviews from the press are helping.

Great job on the song and the video! I like the simple but effective tom fill going into the chorus. Great work!!

I find myself listening to the song the 3rd time in a row now. Could you write out what you do in the tom-piece? I want to learn it :-).

Speaking of toms and this song; this was a little treat: Those big thundering tom hits right at the start of the track are played on a pair of 70s stainless steel toms (part of a big Bonham-sized kit). They were freakishly loud, but when played with mallets they worked very well in that intro:



And since I'm posting pics anyway, here's a nice shot of the studio kit:


And here's the stage setup (and my kit) as seen in the live footage from the video:

Notation really isn't my strong suit, but I can give it a go later if you want.

There's also a really nice shot of me performing them at 1:01 in the video. The kick plays every quarter note, with the toms on top.

When the tom groove reappears in the bridge section, I'm basically repeating the same pattern as seen in the previously mentioned section, but I'm adding hihat stomps on every upbeat, meaning my feet are playing alternating 8th notes between the kick and hihat pedal.

Did that make any sense? It's one of those patterns I've never really analysed; it just came to me and is really just a result of my playing style.

A bit of live footage from the same gig. Apologies for crappy sound and picture. It really doesn't convey the energy level at all, but I thought it might be nice to actually show off some live stuff too :-)

Those are indeed Thumpers, and the shells are standard Keller maple shells.

I have no idea about what the mics were; they were all selected and set up by our engineer (I really know next to nothing about microphones). The toms and snare were miced top and bottom, and the kick had a standard mic and a subkick. There were two overheads and a number of room mics spread around the stage. Also, that room sounded absolutely killer, and a lot of the ambience you're hearing on the tracks is basically the sound of the 1920s theater room.

Wow, how did I miss this thread earlier???

Great stuff! Right up my alley.

I'm adding your band on myspace and such right now.

Damn, I'm sorry Naigewron I didn't see this earlier.

I thought I had posted on here before, but maybe it was another thread.

Anyway, I really dig your sound and look. I could easily cruise in my car with my BA stereo up loud with these tracks pumpin.
This has my style of music written all over it.

I will definately be checking you guys out.

There is something indescribable about a particular sound that just grabs you, and its rare for me, but this is it!.
You got a real fan here.

Now if I could just get in a band like that, I,d be totally stoked. Dont want to play Metal anymore. Too Taxing.

Now I'm gonna check out that song again. :)

Well, it starts off with me hitting a 1970s Ludwig Black Beauty pretty hard with my 5B sticks in a room that sounds absolutely amazing. Beyond that, you'd have to ask our engineer who made it sound even better by fiddling with a lot of knobs that did a lot of magical and mysterious things that I know nothing about :-)

Seriously though; the Black Beauty sound amazing without any sort of microphones. I bought one for myself after having recorded this album (sadly not a vintage one though).

Just looked at the live show footage naige. That's a great visual package to backup the quality of the audio. If you don't mind me asking, was that stage setup funded by the record company?

You could put it that way, but seeing as we're on our own label you could also say it was funded by us ;-)

Thanks a lot mate!

The album is recorded in your neck of the woods (Northern California), so maybe that's why it grabs you, haha :-)

Yeah, I'm not big into playing metal either, although I do enjoy listening to it still. Backbeats and grooves is what drumming is about for me :-)

Ahhh, the "Suck" knob. Trade secret of engineers for years, the more you pay, the more they turn it down.

Hey Naige, I'm really loving the stuff on your YouTube page and I plan on buying your album. I'm just wondering if you guys have any kind of distribution in the US yet or if there is any other way I could purchase a physical copy of the album because I much prefer CDs over mp3 files.

Rock on!

Bought the album the other day, absolutely love it! I have the No.3 main guitar riff (and the one-two crashes... brilliant but subtle nod to the riff there) in my head now. :)

Like others have said, your drumming is perfect for the music, and the whole band's sound is tight. Kudos, and good luck in the future. :)
