Dear Chester, I only realised a few days ago that it’s nearly been a year …
Australia’s own Lillye have announced the release of their debut full length record Evolve, slated for release on the 18th of May 2018.
The rockers have also revealed the first taste of the record, dropping a music video for the single Run. The Mortal Kombatesque piece was filmed at Sydney Props and Boo and Cams and was directed by Dave Molland, with assistance from Max Greig.
Speaking of the lead single frontwoman, Virginia Lillye, explained the following:
“Run is dedicated to a dear friend and fan of the band, Luke “Woody” James Woodland who passed away in 2014. He was conscious about environmental issues and the importance of significant numbers that ran in sequence. One of his attempts to make people aware of the environment would be to paint himself blue, spay his hair green and become “Captain Planet”. He would then begin running around Sydney, Australia starting from a suburb beginning with a letter of the alphabet then ending in another suburb beginning with the same letter. This was his favorite song, and whenever we played it live, he would be the first to break out into a wild dance. We were fortunate to have his younger brother Will, play the lead role in our video, and honored that he portrayed his brother Woody who was such a colourful and passionate character.”
Evolve is the follow up from the release of bands self-titled EP in 2014. It was produced by the bands own bassist, Christian Lauria at Machine Men Studios and mixed by Shane Edwards of Karma Studios. Edwards is known for his efforts with national heavy icons Northlane, Hans Zimmer and Thy Art is Murder.
