RECORD LABEL: AQUALAMB: aqualamb.org
BIO: Lo-Pan’s fifth release, In Tensions, is a new five song EP that sees the seasoned Columbus, OH band continuing their blistering trajectory, building on the infectious, riff-filled grooves of their 2014 full-length Colossus.
In Tensions also marks the next stage in the band’s ever-evolving direction — anchored by the lead single “Go West”, an optimistic, sun-kissed, open highway anthem. Regarding the song, singer Jeff Martin explains “It's about setting out to accomplish a goal and then having that goal change along the way. And ultimately realizing the new goal was better than what you wanted in the first place.” A perfect rallying cry for action in uncertain times, Martin continues, “And it's also about getting out and doing something…. So keep moving forward. Keeping progressing. Keep evolving.”
Recorded in Columbus, OH by Joe Viers, with mixings duties split between Jonathan Nunez (Torche, Shitstorm) and Ryan Haft (Wrong, Capsule) in Miami, and mastered in Chicago by Carl Saff (Big Business, Helms Alee, Russian Circles), In Tensions is a sonic masterpiece created across multiple time zones — the fruit of relationships forged through the band’s unending dedication to the life of touring road dogs.
The Limited Edition 500 Pressing powdered blue vinyl comes with a 100 Page book featuring artwork by Chris Smith of Grey Aria Design as well Lo-Pan tour diaries, flyers and a complete collection lyrics from Lo-Pan’s previous releases: Sasquanaut, Salvador and Colossus.
