Virtually Formed, Badass Rock Band LS Dunes Are Ready For Live Audiences – Orange County Register

Formed in 2020 during the lockdowns enforced by the COVID-19 pandemic, punk and post-hardcore band LS Dunes are ready to share their new music with fans in person.

The band — consisting of Circa Survive and Saosin vocalist Anthony Green, My Chemical Romance guitarist Frank Iero, Coheed and Cambria guitarist Travis Stever, and Tim Payne vom Thursday on bass and Tucker Rule on drums — wrote and recorded during this time virtually to keep the project in check until his band name appeared on the poster as part of the lineup for Chicago’s annual Riot Fest in September.

Since then, LS Dunes have performed at festivals to support their singles “Permanent Rebellion”, “2022” and “Bombsquad”. While the band is releasing their debut album, Past Lives, on Friday, November 11th on Fantasy Records, the band plans to celebrate their labor of love during two Southern California shows at the Garden Amp in Garden Grove on November 12th and The Troubadour in West Hollywood on November 14th November.

“I don’t think any of us initially thought that this[band]would be anything other than fun,” drummer Rule said in a recent phone interview. “We didn’t even know if the music was coming back or when it was going to come back, so we were just all people who were hungry to write music. If anything, this was an exercise in keeping our minds sharp and challenging ourselves with writing.”

Before things shut down, Thursday had just flared up again and committed to playing a string of shows after an opening set for an also recently reunited My Chemical Romance took place at The Shrine in Los Angeles on December 20, 2019. With the momentum suddenly halting, Rule said he wasn’t quite sure what to do with himself, but he didn’t have idle hands for long.

“I bought some recording equipment during the pandemic because I thought live music might not come back and if people wanted to put out records or write songs I could remotely give them drums,” he said.

Rule spent weeks watching videos on YouTube learning how to properly set up a home studio and how to mic his drum kit. One day Stever sent him a guitar riff to play along with and the idea of ​​actually starting a new project began to germinate after rehearsals for Thursday’s Christmas 2020 livestream event. Rule and Stever practically teamed up with Iero to get extra guitars and tapped Payne to play bass. The quartet started writing different parts of songs and shared them via the cloud, but they still didn’t have a singer.
