Lemuria set to record new album

Official press release: Buffalo, NY's Lemuria will be hitting the studio to record their third full-length album (second for Bridge Nine Records) on Wednesday, December 5th. This yet-to-be-titled new album will be the follow-up to the band's critically acclaimed Pebble LP, which was released in early 2011, and was featured in the likes of Spin Magazine,, and countless other websites and magazines. Lemuria's bassist Max Gregor commented, "We're excited to be heading into J Robbin's recently acquired studio in Baltimore, MD, to record a new full length for Bridge Nine. We've balanced out or busy lives over the past year with a number of songs that collectively create an atmosphere of distance and contemplation, while still reaching towards some of the band's catchier, energetic tendencies. We have some plans for a few guest appearances on this record, and also some new sounds and ideas to progress from Pebble. That said, we're going to be writing up to when we enter the studio, and of course a bit in the studio as well, so nothing is out of the question. Also, Alex will be tracking all of his drum parts while his kit is on fire." Lemuria will spend 10 days in the studio in December, then will head back in late January to finish the album. This will be the band's second effort produced by J. Robbins (Against Me!, Jawbreaker, The Promise Ring, and countless others) and will feature Lemuria's signature sweet-sounding, dueling girl/boy vocals with punchy guitars and catchy choruses, no doubt being some of the band's best work to date. Thus far, Lemuria has "... 16 songs written, but some 'songs' are turning into interludes, intros, as some interludes are forming themselves into songs."
