JULY 15, 2020 – Chicago, IL – Chicago-based punk-rockers LURK have dropped two new tracks today, showcasing their electric and intoxicating punk influences while also highlighting a more indie-leaning side of the band through a new acoustic reimagining.
Speaking to new single “Pressure Points,” Vocalist Kevin Kiley shares “It’s a song about people’s voracious nature in bringing up injustices without seeking change. The internet can be a great tool for discussion and information during difficult times like now, but I think it often turns into an echo chamber and the motivation becomes social acceptance. It’s exhausting but there needs to be difficult conversations that seek change rather than hiding from contrasting viewpoints.”
“We also recorded an acoustic version of ‘Trample’ from our Hi-Fi EP,” he continues. “We hope you enjoy it and promise more music to come. Rock n Roll baby, peace and love.”
Fans can check out the new singles today HERE as well as on all streaming platforms.
This is the first taste of new music from the Chicago rockers since their 2019 EP, Electro-Shock. The 4-track collection cohesively and quickly solidifies LURK as a band to watch in 2019. Fans can stream Electro-Shock via Pure Noise Records at http://lurkusa.com/.
Lurk is Vocalist Kevin Kiley, Bassist Dan Durley, Drummer Pedro Unzueta and Guitarists Alex Rackow and Kevin Maida.
