FIRST POST IN OVER A YEAR (SORRY)!!!

Hey all! Thought we should give you a bit of an update of whats going on with ALC at the moment. We have been working on a mini album for a while now, and have tracked 99% of it so far, with intentions to take it to get produced, mixed and mastered soon. Lachlan Kirkbright is our newest member, tackling the bass duties and will also be on the upcoming third release. To give you a taste of what to expect from the mini album, check out ‘Elevate’ (Live @ Bakehouse) here:

‘TRANSIENTS’ TO BE RELEASED THROUGH ‘BIRDS ROBE RECORDS’

As we approach 2014 we are beyond thrilled to announce that our second album ‘Transients’ will be released through Bird’s Robe Records!  It’s been two and a half years of blood, sweat and harmonic minors working towards the creation and release of our second album, and it is truly humbling to be joining a community of artists and friends whom we have a huge amount of respect for.  Mike Solo and Bird’s Robe are fiercely determined advocates of the acts they works with and they have made huge inroads towards getting our amazing music scene the recognition it deserves.  Please stay tuned for the announcement of our album launch in early 2014!

‘BLUR’ FILM CLIP/SINGLE LAUNCH!

EVENT PAGE

A Lonely Crowd (film clip/single launch):
Following the release of ‘The Fall’ – the first single off their upcoming second album, A Lonely Crowd are very excited to release their second single ‘Blur’, along with their first official Film Clip.  The music video for ‘Blur’ is the result of the creative vision and production of Melbourne filmmaker Clayton Smith.  Along with Melbourne designer Tania Tobiano and an incredible cast and crew, Clayton has created something truly unique to fit with the otherworldly themes and crisp melodic rhythms of this driving, three minute track. The ‘Blur’ film clip will be shown for the first time at this event, and will be available for purchase along with some bonus tracks. The single will be available on Bandcamp after the event. Excited to be heading this triple launch with some of the finest bands Melbourne has to offer, this is sure to be a night to remember.
Blur Single Engineered/Produced by Tom Fitzgerald at Anon Islet Studios
