New Fairfield, Conneticut-based outfit, Lakeshore is an active rock band headed by brothers Ben and Joe Lionetti (guitarist & drummer) who in the past originally founded the successful metalcore group Emmure. The band has deep roots in music and combines a very powerful and melodic sound with a fresh new touch, unlike any other. Along with Ben and Joe, Lakeshore includes vocalist Shawn Adams, bassist Chris Segovia, and lead guitarist Mitch LoBuglio.
Their debut EP 41 was recorded with producer Ken Susi of Unearth (The Contortionist, Madball) and features Karl Shubach of Misery Signals and Jessie Freeland of The Tony Danza Tapdance Extravaganza on the track “King.” Lakeshore ushers in a pure new energy with a nostalgic feel, formed by a relentless cast set on defining a new era of music.
“It just takes a little imagination”
Following Lakeshore’s huge burst of success since forming, the rock outfit joined the 2017 Vans Warped Tour line-up and released their debut album on July 7th that has been largely appreciated by fans, with tracks “Future” and “Kings” being a crowd favourite amongst their growing audience.
When referring to one of their newest tracks, Lakeshore explains “Pure // Imagination” as a track that encourages listeners to believe that inside your own head you can do anything, and expressing that if you pay attention and focus on what really matters, you can change the world.
“Looking inward, believing in yourself to make your dreams come is what we are all about. So when it came to the concept of the video the band wanted something that looked animated, symbolizing something they created and then at the end of the video everything comes to life.”
