“Cinematic and lovely, the song and story share the connection between kindred spirits and the support of those that know and love them.” Parade Magazine

“The quintet, led by vocalist/guitarist Felix Bechtolsheimer, is back August 17 with sophomore album As I Fell, and the LP continues the band’s exploration of its patented Amerigothica sound—one that comfortably rides right alongside both Black Rebel Motorcycle Club and Drive-By Truckers.” – Magnet Magazine

August 17, 2018- Acclaimed London five-piece  Curse Of Lono new album, As I Fellis out now, via Submarine Car Records. Today, the band has unveiled the video behind the story on the title track, “As I Fell.” CLICK HERE TO WATCH exclusively on Parade Magazine. 

Felix, the lead singer says, “’As I Fell’ is the title track off our new album which comes out today. I wrote the song for our bass player, Charis, when her boyfriend, Tom Edwards, passed away unexpectedly last year. They had been together for over four years and were talking about getting married this year. Tom was on tour in the US with Adam Ant when he caught pneumonia, which quickly turned into sepsis. He died on the tour bus on January 25th last year. Tom, who was only 41 years old, was a huge part of our musical family. There were times when we saw more of him than our own families. He was an incredibly charismatic and caring human being as well as a wonderful guitarist who, as well as being Adam Ant’s long-time musical director and lead guitarist, worked with numerous other artists including Edwyn Collins, Roddy Frame, Andrea Corr and Fields Of The Nephilim. His passing has left a huge void and it was important to us to pay tribute to him on the day our album is released.

Recorded between Joshua Tree and London with producer Oli Bayston (AKA Boxed In), the track builds on the band’s deeply cinematic blend of harmony-laden Americana and driving, gothic alt-rock. It’s a sound that owes as much to old faithfuls like The Doors and The Velvet Underground as it does to more contemporary artists such as The War On Drugs and Wilco.

Formed in London in 2015, Curse Of Lono is Felix Bechtolsheimer (vocals and guitar), Joe Hazell (lead guitar and vocals), Dani Ruiz Hernandez (keys and vocals), Charis Anderson (bass and vocals) and Neil Findlay (drums). ‘As I Fell’ is the follow-up to ‘Severed’, one of the most critically acclaimed debuts of 2017, and builds on Curse Of Lono’s deeply cinematic blend of harmony-laden Americana and driving, gothic alt-rock. It’s a sound that owes as much to old faithfuls like The Doors and The Velvet Underground as it does to more contemporary artists such as The War On Drugs and Wilco. Although some of the songs on ‘As I Fell’ revisit familiar themes like murderous jealousy and the death of loved ones, much of the album covers new ground.

Curse Of Lono recently completed a UK headline tour, including a sold-out show at London’s Lexington, and a run of European support dates with both Steve Earle and Southside Johnny & The Asbury Jukes. Catch them at a series of festival dates this summer.
