FRIENDS Pre-Order is up now!

Hi there,

I’ve been super busy (in a good way) recently with recording music and getting my new single ready for release, that I had neglected my ol’ blog for a bit there!

I’ll start from Halloween. My pumpkin that I bought to do a little carving video with had decided to give up by the Halloween weekend and turned into a very soft ball of sadness. It did make for a much funnier video so if you’d like to see the pumpkin’s demise then please… you can view that below.

As you can see, it wasn’t pleasant, but pretty funny nonetheless.

I went to a friends Halloween party and the dress-up theme was horror movie, TV etc. so I raked through my wardrobe and pieced together a Jack Torrance costume (The Shining). I finished it off with a cardboard and tin foil axe and a white door frame around my head. It was great for all of 15 minutes until I was unbearably hot and spent the rest of the night as a standard looking lumberjack (wow, such scare).

The rest of my time until has been spent recording a Foo Fighters cover and filming a little video to go with it. It’s a little different to my other covers, full instrumentation and a new style video to accompany it. Check it out on my YouTube and let me know what you think ๐Ÿ™‚

It is now TEN DAYS until my new single FRIENDS is released and last night I set up pre-orders for physical CDs, gonna be working on making those all week and prepping the final touches to the B-Side. I can’t wait to release it, it has been too long! It will also be my first song to hit iTunes, Spotify and more so if you have playlists on there, be sure to add the songs to it! ๐Ÿ™‚

Pre-Orders are available here:

All physical copies will come with handwritten lyric sheets, Handmade packaging, links to view an exclusive live video of FRIENDS and a handwritten ‘Thank You’ note.

So that’s about it for this one, hope you have a sweet little week.

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 (thatโ€™s ten days before my birthday, incase you were wonderingโ€ฆ)

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

Iโ€™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 Iโ€™ll be putting it on iTunes, Apple Music, Spotify, Deezer, Bandcamp and YouTube (Iโ€™ll be doing a music video for YouTube!), so hopefully you can get a listen! I havenโ€™t decided if Iโ€™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, itโ€™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 Iโ€™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!

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 doesnโ€™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 itโ€™s good to be home. I canโ€™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!

Like my AC/DC shirt?
