Today Carlisle’s The Lucid Dream announce the release of their fifth album, The Deep End, due out 2nd April on Holy Are You Recordings.
With the announcement, comes the release of lead single CHI-03 which gives the album its first sucker punch moment. A track born out of listening to late 80s hip hop records on a loop before allowing the 303 to take on the co-lead vocal role, alongside the sampler. A beat designed to make people move, with enough Lucid sonics to stamp the band’s signature. The track was recorded in March 2019 and the speech samples within almost pre-empts the horror and hatred that unfolded in both the USA and UK in the latter stages of 2019 onwards.
Following on from 2018’s album Actualisation, the new album builds upon the acid house influences of the former but ventures into many new paths. Hip hop, techno, drum ‘n’ bass and other ‘genres’ sneak into the creative palette whilst also staying true to the band’s mantra of throwing the rule book out of the window, as far as ‘boundaries’ are concerned.
The Lucid Dream are Mark Emmerson (vocals/guitars/programming), Wayne Jefferson (guitars/synths), Mike Denton (bass) and Luke Anderson (drums).
The band will perform at the Trades Club in Hebden Bridge on 15th October 2021.
