The Luka State On Tour, in Denver 9/30 at Lost Lake Lounge


The Luka State have been recording their forthcoming album with producers Dan Austin (Biffy ClyroYou Me At SixPixies) and the Grammy Award-winning Adrian Bushby (Foo FightersMuseU2) at Liverpool’s Motor Museum and EVE near Manchester. As we’ve heard on the recent tracks “Bring Us Down” and Oxygen Thief,” the record will see The Luka State supercharging their sonic attack with a whirlwind of punk, alt-rock, and indie references points, together with lyrics that take a savage look at social issues, as well as the us-against-them stance of being a rock band ready to take on the world.  It’s a caustic cocktail in the lineage of current UK favorites IDLES, Kid Kapichi, and The Blinders.

The Luka State commented, “Making this record has felt like a rebirth of the band. We feel like we’re able to channel our anxieties, our passions, our anger as well as our love for the life around us into our songs in a far more honest way than the first record.

The world’s still a mess after the pandemic isn’t it? So we didn’t want our fans having to wait 7 months until the album comes out to hear the new songs. The album’s not even got a name yet. I think we’re going to call it ‘The More Things Change, The More They Stay The Same’. Not sure though.

We want to road test the new music with our die hard fans in the UK after our USA tour. London, Liverpool, Glasgow, we’re coming for you. Grab your tickets quick, though, ‘cause these venues are TINY!”

Featuring Conrad Ellis (vocals, guitar), Sam Bell (bass, vocals), Lewis Pusey (guitar), and Jake Barnabas (drums), The Luka State was formed in the small town of Winsford, location in the nether zone between Manchester and Liverpool. Their debut album ‘Fall In Fall Out’ earned support from Radio 16 MusicRadio XAbsolute RadioThe GuardianKerrang! and Rolling Stone, but they’re completely raising their game with their upcoming second record. Constantly growing and evolving, the band’s self-proclaimed attitude is, You’re only as good as your last piece of work so you have to make this one the best yet.”
