Recently reunited English trio LostAlone are set to release a brand new album, The Warring Twenties, via Dharma Record.
The band’s latest record will be their first full-length studio full-length since their 2014 release Shapes Of Screams.
Earlier this month, LostAlone unveiled two new singles Punchline Punched Back and The Last Drop Of Forever.
Recording during the first lockdown, Steven Battelle explains, "I was dealing with some major toxicity and this song was a way of exorcising myself from it. Feeling like I was recusing myself from life and spending too much time in fantasy, hence the reference to Rekall, the virtual vacation centre in Total Recall – the Arnie version."
Meanwhile, of their return as a whole, the frontman enthuses: "The three of us are buzzing to be back making music again together. I didn’t realise until recently that a part of me had been lying dormant these last few years, but now – without wanting to pre-empt the future – I feel like I’ve that part of me back for good."
Speaking on the new album, Steven adds: "When we played our 'final' show I barricaded the doors to that version of me and, without looking back, walked away into a future of unknowns. Two solo records and an EP later in the pre-pandemic world of 2019 I felt a looming presence, a constant barrage behind me. A melodic paranoia that I couldn’t shake.”
The frontman also shared how “unbelievable” the journey of The Warring Twenties has been whilst constructing the album remotely during multiple lockdowns.
“[This] record owes its existence to remote work in London, Derby, Los Angeles, Nottingham, Glasgow, Hastings and New York,” Steven explains.
