Regarding the single, Laurence states:
“When it came to choosing to the first single to take from ‘Destination Unknown’ I knew that it had to be ‘Anywhere With Me’. It’s the perfect way to open up this record. The first thing you’re hit with is that Rock sensibility that only the guitar could deliver. Over the course of the song it develops into something really special and I couldn’t imagine of a better first glimpse of the upcoming record!”
“I couldn’t have done it without my fantastic band though! We’ve got Bennett Holland on Hammond, Keys and synth, Jack Alexander Timmis on bass guitar and rounded off by Samuel Jenkins on drums. Together, the four of us have created something really special that I hope resonates just as much with someone who’s been listening to Rock for years as it does with someone who’s just dipping their toes in the water. Hope you all enjoy it just as much as I did laying it down.”
‘Destination Unknown’ is available to preorder on Limited edition Colour LP, Signed CD alongside the opportunity to buy tickets to an exclusive live album playback with LAURENCEJONES and his band performing ‘Destination Unknown’ in full along with some fan favourites.
Clocking in at forty one minutes ‘Destination Unknown’ packs an effortless Rock punch whilst not forgetting this prodigy of Blues’ heritage. It’s as much The Who as it is Joe Bonamassa but at it’s core the record is tethered to melody. Creating licks, riffs and choruses that will remain in your head long after the track has finished.
Recorded at Marshall Studio at the unofficial home of Rock (sorry Birmingham!) in Milton Keynes, the record was produced by LAURENCEJONES, engineered by Marshall’s own Adam Beer, mixed by Chris Sheldon before the piece de resistance which saw the record mastered in the hallowed grounds of Abbey Road by Christian Wright.
