"some music was meant to stay underground..."


From: Louisville, KY, United States
Last Known Status: Active


Featuring members of Louisville's THE NATIONAL ACROBAT and other local luminaries such as BROTHERS OF CONQUEST, SLOW SUICIDE, IRINA, and RED SUN, LORDS have quickly made a name for themselves, playing a music style that might be described as BLACK FLAG meets KARP with early IRON MAIDEN guitar runs sprinkled throughout; hints of old RYE COALITION and INK & DAGGER can also be found if you look hard enough.

Lords Seeks New Bassist

After an incident with now former member Matt Jaha (outlined in a recent blog), Louisville, Kentucky's Lords are seeking a new bassist.

An excerpt from the entry outlines the band's requirements:

"When we return home we will be having formal bass player tryouts. The list of iron-fisted, totalitarian, completely unreasonable and unfair Nazi-like expectations Eric and I have out of a bass player are:

- be able to play the songs
- be able to tour and leave the country
- be able to practice in Louisville, KY when necessary
- show up on time for tour and shows
- understand that if you purposely damage or endanger our van, equipment or anything else belonging to us then we will purposely damage or endanger your face."

Breather Resist Becomes Young Widows

Breather Resist has essentially been put to bed and members of the band have started a new project called Young Widows. According to the band, "After recording we decided it would be unfair to keep the name Breather Resist due to the fact that the stuff we have written now is not Breather Resist... it's something else... You follow? So we have left the name behind and are now, Young Widows." The group has posted unmastered material from their upcoming Jade Tree Records release online.

In related news, former Breather Resist vocalist Steve Sindoni has started a band called Pusher. The band also features former Lickgoldensky drummer Eric McManus and will enter the studio with Chris Owens (of Lords) next month.
