Lochness Monster Release New Single "Defiance"




The Miami-based rock outfit, Lochness Monster, consisting of Bruce Donaldson (Singer), Justin Shaner (Guitar), Brad Eavenson (Bass), and Rene Rivera (Drums) incorporate elements of rock, shoegaze, punk, and alternative metal into their heartfelt sound. Today they are thrilled to announce their brand new self-titled EP due out July 26th, featuring already released single "Calling Out," a song about holding onto love and finding forgiveness. Its lyrics are about recognizing the trials and tribulations faced in a relationship of love and seeking redemption in each other. Continuing this theme throughout the 4-track EP, they want to convey a more personal story behind their music filled with struggles and reoccuring themes of hope and redemption. Taking a year to conceptualize, Donaldson adds,

"The songs that were chosen for this EP allowed us to find ourselves as a band, as individual musicians, and the direction we want to take our music. Each of us wants our music to have lyrics that people can connect with while remaining poetic and thoughtful, and to surround those lyrics with a powerful rock sound with lots of energy and dynamics. Musically we worked to create a sound that was familiar in some ways to our first album, Fables, while also evolving into a sound that was natural to all of the members of the band."

Off the forthcoming release, the band is proud to unveil a new single today called, "Defiance." Stemming a bit away from their traditional sound, the band wanted to explore a heavier and darker notion in the track. The single was conceptualized by Bassist, Brad Eavenson and Guitarist, Justin Shaner after spending several sessions developing the dark and driving bass riff to include a haunting guitar melody that ebbs and flows from heavy and aggressive to eerie and melodic. From there Vocalist, Bruce Donaldson added the lyrics over the melody to explore the volatile sides of human emotions while also dealing with acceptance of imperfections, both personal and in others. "Defiance" is available to stream and purchase today!

The band is looking forward to sharing this new music with fans and provided the following message for their supports:"This EP is an expression of who we are as a band and as individuals. These songs are born out of stories from our lives, and we want to share them with you. These are our stories. This is who we are. This is Lochness Monster."
