LCY Uncut

By Lawnchair Youth

If you're noticing a trend of black-and-white music videos lately, chances are you're witnessing LCY Uncut. Each week, the Lawnchair Youth studios opens its doors in Birmingham, Alabama, allowing bands to perform an uncut video of one of their tracks showcased on LCY's YouTube channel. Their platform has become a hub for discovering new music, and so we've dedicated a space for the LCY crew to share the bands they discover on Lambgoat. 

Here are eight bands you should keep an eye on this month.

gimmick. - “Exist or Perish”

Birmingham, AL hardcore outfit gimmick. released their intense, high-energy single "Exist or Perish" on LCY Uncut, the last track from their 2023 EP "To The Dead." It mixes elements of hardcore, metalcore, and nu-metal grooves. 

SINEMA - “Wait and See”

Birmingham, AL heavy rock quartet SINEMA are back with a new LCY Uncut showing their big, punchy production with catchy choruses, pinch squeal verses, and attitude to match.

Omenkiller - “The Disrespect”

Savannah, GA beatdown band Omenkiller released their new single "The Disrespect" which is filled with a mixed bag of melodic grooves, heavy mosh riffs, and deathcore vocals that leave you wanting more.


Decoy - "Personality Program"

Baton Rogue, LA hardcore outfit Decoy gives it tastefully with gritty, tough guy hardcore that anyone with a pulse would eat up in one listen. 

Torcon 11 - “Respect the Polygon”

Birmingham, AL weathercore parody band Torcon 11 released their first single "Respect the Polygon" on LCY Uncut. The 5-piece dresses like Alabama's famous weatherman James Spann. In light of being a parody, they donate all their earning from the band to Spann's fundraiser Alabama Childhood Food. 

Itami - “Sin Eater”

Albuquerque, NM metalcore band Itami released their latest single “Sin Eater." The four-piece with infectious metalcore influences and grimy, rugged vocals from their frontman/bassist. 

Ulamog - “Cursed By The Gods”

Virginia Beach, VA crossover band Ulamog released their first visual for "Cursed by the Gods" on LCY Uncut from their modern thrash, crossover masterpiece "The Hungriest of the Old Ones." If you love Bolt Thrower and Power Trip, this is the band to keep your eye on! 

Avian Theory - False Tongues

Phenix City, AL alt-metal riffers Avian Theory tap into a little of everything with their latest track "False Tongues." You get big choruses with singing, deathcore vocals over prog riffs, and snarling, zombie vocals that hit you out of nowhere.

Avian Theory is one of the best bands around Alabama! They've been touring with Witch Hunter and Foxbat and their energy is sick!! Check them out for sure and the other bands they've been playing with! Avian Theory, Witch Hunter, and Foxbat are some very talented musicians!!

A lot of talent on this list. Definitely Avian Theory. I've been in the scene a long time, and have been fortunate to be able to see them a handful of times, and they never miss. They're a breath of fresh air, so to speak. Super nice guys, and put on a hell of a show. Definitely keep them on your radar.
