L.S. Dunes Unveil New Single ‘Old Wounds’

Supergroup L.S. Dunes continue to captivate with their latest release, Old Wounds, marking their second single of the season.

L.S. Dunes, known for their eclectic lineup of talent, presents a haunting and meandering melody in their new single, following their previously unleashed song, Benadryl Subreddit.

The band, a constellation of musical luminaries including Anthony Green of Circa Survive, Frank Iero of My Chemical Romance, Travis Stever of Coheed and Cambria, and Tim Payne and Tucker Rule of Thursday, weave their distinctive musical identities into a harmonious blend.

Both Old Wounds and Benadryl Subreddit were recorded in April at the famed Rancho De La Luna studio situated in Joshua Tree, California, under the expert guidance of producer Alex Newport.

These latest tracks follow the wake of L.S. Dunes‘ debut album, Past Lives, a groundbreaking collection that graced the music scene in November of the preceding year.

Check out the new single below and let us know what you think of it!

L.S. Dunes Release New Song ‘Benadryl Subreddit’ With Music Video

L.S. Dunes are back with new music. They released their new song Benadryl Subreddit right before they start their upcoming America tour.

The song got announced 3 days ago when the band posted a video on their Instagram telling everyone about it. They also announced that they recorded a documentary which part 1 will release on June 27th. L.S. Dunes also stated that they have another song coming up after this one.

L.S. Dunes currently only have 1 album and they seem quite busy so it wouldn’t be far-fetched to think that we could be getting another album in the upcoming year.

Watch the music video for Benadryl Subreddit below and stream it on Spotify below that. Let us know what you think of the new song!

CONCERT REVIEW: L.S. Dunes Play For Ecstatic Crowd at First-Ever Netherlands Show

L.S. Dunes, a band that started in the second half of 2022 came to the Netherlands. The band consisting of frontman Anthony Green, originally from the bands Circa Survive, Saosin and The Sound of Animals Fighting. Guitarist Frank Iero, who’s well known as the guitarist of My Chemical Romance. Guitarist Travis Stever, originally from Coheed and Cambria. Tim Payne on the bass, who originally is from the band Thursday. Last but not least Tucker Rule who is also from the band Thursday. They didn’t come alone though, they brought Kayleigh Goldsworthy along with them as their opener.

Kayleigh came on stage with a small delay. She was on her own with one guitar. The lights went off and the people who had been at more shows of the tour cheered her on. She played one song before talking to the crowd. You could already feel that her set would be different than most shows. She was really casual and talked to the crowd really well. Not too much hyping up but more like a proper one way conversation. Her voice was absolutely amazing, it felt like she has so much more potential in that area.

Most songs were calmer songs compared to what we would be listening to an hour later. She mentioned that all her merch was almost sold out and that she loves the support. She painted 10 little ghosts on tiny canvases to go along with the theme of her song Little Ghost. Those canvases were for sale at the merch stand. Give Kayleigh Goldsworthy a listen if you like more calmer sad songs. However not everything she played was sad. She got L.S. Dunes on stage for the last song. Only Anthony didn’t because he does the vocals, Kayleigh did her own vocals of course so he wasn’t needed for that.

L.S. Dunes came on stage around half an hour after Kayleigh ended her set. It was the most beautiful sight ever. Tucker came on stage in a beautiful jacket and nice concert clothing and started playing the drums. The only way to describe what happened next is that five middle aged dad’s came walking on stage in their everyday clothing. They picked up their instruments and started playing.

They started off with Bombsquad. To be honest I didn’t expect too much from this concert, I personally wasn’t a huge fan of their music prior and the venue wasn’t sold out either. But things turned around after a few songs. They played their songs live with so much more feeling, it felt much more raw there. More than you’d see at other bands. This could be because they recorded all their music separately during the covid period. Back then they couldn’t really get together and get a feel together, but that was so different now that they were together. The thing that stood out the most were Anthony’s vocals and his stage presence. He almost knocked over Tim during the first song because of his enthusiasm.

A few pits started forming later in their set and Anthony made a forced dad joke about that the show was ‘The Amsterjam’. He said that he didn’t come up with the joke himself but that he was forced by the rest of the band to make the joke. People in the queue wrote their names on a transgender flag which got thrown on stage too. They didn’t pay much attention to it until some crowd surfers got on stage and waved with it to the crowd. After that they put it on one of the amplifiers next to the drum kit.

All good things have to come to an end sadly but this didn’t have to come to an end yet. They came back to play three more songs as an encore. They ended with Sleep Cult. This time it was Kayleigh who got called on stage. She came walking on stage with her violin and beautifully played along with them. The set was really over after that song though.

Definitely check out L.S. Dunes and Kayleigh Goldsworthy. If you don’t like the studio versions of the L.S. Dunes songs then give some live videos a chance. It has a different and more raw sound which could maybe make you like it more.
