Pop/post-punk three-piece LEMURIA spent the last year going strong on their Bridge Nine debut album, Pebble, which hit stores in January of 2011. Over the course of the year, Lemuria toured all over the world, including the US, Canada, Europe, the UK, and even Russia. Now, the band is excited to kick off 2012 with a special 7inch for Record Store Day! Lemuria drummer Alex Kerns commented, "We are all fans and supporters of our own local record stores, and fully support the mission of 'Record Store Day'. This year, everything seemed to work out timing-wise for us to contribute our own release, so we jumped eagerly at the opportunity! We entered the studio in Baltimore with J Robbins in late January to record two songs for a very limited, very special RSD only release. The songs are the first recorded to feature our new bass player, and the record itself features artwork from our friend Sarah Abbot. You can help by requesting your local record store to carry this release, and by buying our 7" and other limited records on April 21st!"
Titled VAROOM ALLURE, this new 7inch features an eponymous track on one side, and the song "Cannonballs to Hurt" on the other. Check out "Varoom Allure" now on their Facebook page now! Be sure to pick up Varoom Allure at your favorite store during Record Store Day on April 21st...
While you're at it, don't forget to scope the two new videos Lemuria premiered this year, for "Pleaser" and "Wise People" below.
