Single Announcement and Song Snippet

Have spent most of last week and all of the weekend working on the new single! I can now finally announce that it is called FRIENDS and it will be released on November 20th (that’s ten days before my birthday, incase you were wondering…)

This is the first song I’ve released since Where I Belong which, was released last November. So, I couldn’t let it be a whole year since I released a song! Modern Honesty has put out some music this year so I won’t go completely crazy for not releasing anything for so long.

I’m going to be doing this in the best way possible so I can make sure as many of you can hear it and are able to access it! This means I’ll be putting it on iTunes, Apple Music, Spotify, Deezer, Bandcamp and YouTube (I’ll be doing a music video for YouTube!), so hopefully you can get a listen! I haven’t decided if I’ll be doing pre-orders for the new single yet but I will be sure to let you know on my Vlogs and other social media spots.

As with my other vlogs, I descend into some random topics, like letting blink know if they need a new guitarist / singer for the band, if Matt Skiba gets tied up with Alkaline Trio for a bit, that I am totally and 100 percent available. Talents include, running on 2 hours sleep, drinking 30 cups of coffee and playing through the Enema of the State album without a pause. You know, it’s up there in my list of skills. Do you like my blink-182 shirt?

So! If you have my other EPs or have heard my other songs, I hope you like the new single! If you are new to my music, then: HELLO, I am Lucas, a Singer-Songwriter from the South of the UK and I’m about to release my new single FRIENDS on November 20th. See you all at the release party (most likely a whetherspoons or burger joint somewhere).

Later!

Heaven’s Well (Acoustic)

Heaven’s Well is a song I wrote before I began the whole process of recording for my latest EP, The ‘Needle & Thread’ EP. It is WAY darker than my other songs and that is mainly because I wanted to try something totally new with my song-writing and try a sound that I don’t normally focus on and sing about some themes I, at times, could feel uncomfortable singing about.

The song can mean different things to different people so I won’t go into it too much on what it’s about, but I hope you enjoy it! I tend not to play this song live anymore due to it sticking out and you know, it can be a buzzkill… but I wanted to share it with you incase you hadn’t heard it with just voice and guitar and you wanted to hear a different side to my music!

Current Plans and Bad AC/DC Impressions

Got back to the Isle of Wight yesterday, after a mighty run to catch my ferry as I timed my buses terribly from Southampton Train Station to the ferry terminal. Who doesn’t love being a sweaty betty for an entire Red Funnel ferry trip? Right here, me! Alas, I count it as leg day (my first ever) and it’s good to be home. I can’t wait to finish off my new single and you have to be sure to watch next weeks vlog to hear the title! I might even play a little clip of the song so subscribe and be the first to hear it!

Runaway (Acoustic) #throwbackthursday

Runaway is a song off my 2nd EP, The ‘Needle & Thread’ EP. I’m bunged up and coughing from a lovely cold so couldn’t sing great today. Although, I found this video I recorded around the summer of last year as I didn’t want to miss an upload day so let’s call it a #throwbackthursday

When I’m back to singing I’ll post a brand new video!

Coffee (Acoustic)

So last year I released a record, called The ‘Needle & Thread’ EP. It contained within it, a song called ‘Coffee’. Coffee is a wonderful thing. I don’t care if it’s Tesco Value or served in a train station drinks booth priced at £15, I will consider the first coffee of the day a big ol’ cup of awesome. Anyway… here is me playing that song. You can hear the recorded version here: https://youtu.be/ip_Jl6J9jIc
