On their upcoming debut album The Darkest Sun, led by first single Before I Go Insane, Melbourne’s Lazarus Mode uphold the city’s outstanding tradition of larger-than-life, no-bullshit hard rock. Having spent the last few years earning their stripes as a live band in Australia’s most sacred venues, the four-piece have bunkered down in the studio and come out all guns blazing.
Forming in 2013, Lazarus Mode’s chemistry is apparent in how fluid and tight they play, and their style is a blistering meld of classic and modern. Distilling this into a potent mix, engineer Ermin Hamidovic (Periphery, Devin Townsend Project, Animals As Leaders) has captured the size and energy of the band’s live sound for the album.
Following on from their 2014 Ignite EP, Lazarus Mode will be showcasing tracks on their Pre-Flight Tour and online in the lead up to the April 21 release of The Darkest Sun.
