“A melodic punk banger that scratches a similar itch as Call Me Malcolm (sans ska). And if you’re unfamiliar with Call Me Malcolm, fans of anything from Rise Against to Alkaline Trio to The Menzingers should not sleep on this catchy, anthemic track.”–Brooklynvegan
Lucias Malcolm, frontman for acclaimed UK ska-punk band Call Me Malcolm, has released the video for “Am Hell” the lead single from his new punk solo project.
Lucias Malcolm is a punk multi-instrumentalist from Kent, UK. Over the last 4 years. Lucias gained prominence in the UK and US DIY music scenes as songwriter–in-chief for ska/punk band Call Me Malcolm, who “have been quietly making some of the most special, unique, ambitious music in the punk underground.” (Brooklyn Vegan)
Lucias launches his solo career this September with his first single “Am Hell,” taken from the debut album Past, Present and Future Regrets.
The ten punk rock tracks, written, performed, programmed and recorded by Lucias, combine refined punk force with unfettered emotional honesty. Telling the story of one scarred night in the mind of an insomniac, the vocals were produced, and the album mixed and mastered, by Oz Craggs at Hidden Track Studios (As Everything Unfolds, Mallory Knox, thecityisours, RXPTRS).
Lucias is part of the Blackstar Amplification roster (w/ Goldfinger, Bob Mould, Frank Turner), and is represented by All Corners Artist Booking (w/ Direct Hit!, Red City Radio).
