The Lockhearts have dropped their much-anticipated first single ‘Ride Home’ today, from their forthcoming album, Americana Doom Fuzz, slated for release in early 2018 via Golden Robot Records. Launching the track at The Factory Floor, Sydney, this Saturday, July 29th, before continuing their promo tour with a run of dates through August and September.
Already a live favourite, Ride Home boasts one of the band’s most infectious vocal refrains, a dangling earworm akin to The Black Crowes Remedy. The group embraces their 70s rock influences and deliver a needle-in-the-red cut driving song with promised bursts of “doom fuzz” peppered throughout.
Formed in 2012, drawing from the members’ shared love of vintage guitar stores, hot sauce, and the first four Van Halen albums. The Lockhearts hold claim to the longest running weekly residency in Sydney, have toured Australia extensively and created their own annual sell-out festival “Old Mates Block Party”. Ride Home captures the group’s signature live hard-rock swagger, delivering an incendiary taste of what’s to come from their debut LP.
The Lockhearts are fronted by Tim Meaco on vocals and guitar, Sam Sheumack on guitar, Jameel Majam on bass and Steve ‘Woodie’ Woodward on drums.
