Street Symphonies Records & Burning Minds Music Group are excited to announce the signing of Swedish glamsters Lipz, for the release of their brand new album "Scaryman". The history of Lipz begins back in 2011, when Klintberg bros Alexander (Vocals, Guitar) and Koffe (Drums) decided to build up a new band together with their best friend Conny Svärd (Guitar). The band immediately started the research for a suitable frontman, but after some unsuccessful tries Alexander decided to pick up the mic himself, becoming immediately the perfect fit for the group. With this line-up, Lipz entered the studio to begin the recordings of their own material. Their first single "Ghost Town" was released in September 2012, followed three years after by their official EP called "Psycho". An endless research for a stable bass-player slowed down the process of making a full studio album, which took three years to be finally completed (with Alexander handling the bass duties himself). 

In 2018 Lipz signed with Street Symphonies Records / Burning Minds Music Group for the release of "Scaryman", which is expected in May.

Label Manager Stefano Gottardi says: "Since Oscar Burato and myself founded Street Symphonies Records back in 2008, our first priority has always been scouting the underground scene looking for young and promising bands, especially those with cool music, right attitude and a great look. In 2011 we stumbled upon Lipz for the first time, and we immediately contacted the guys to discuss the release of a record: sadly it never happened, especially for some unexpected changes they were making to their sound at that time. When a few months ago we heard that they were finally recording their debut album, and that it would have been inspired by their "original" sound, we immediately contacted them, in order to resume the negotiations interrupted years before. After listening for the first time to "Scaryman", we had no doubt: it was exactly the kind of record we wanted to hear from Lipz! The revival of glam rock, started in the second half of 2000s, caused an invasion of new bands (most of them coming from Sweden), but today the 95% of those acts no longer exists, while just few are being born these days. Lipz are among the few convincing young leading figures of this scene: they have the mood, the refrains, the right look and the needed attitude. But most of all they show off that cool mix of extravagance and madness which promises to bring you back in time, when this entertaining rock style ruled the charts being literally the soundtrack of our youth".

Further info about official release date, final tracklist and more details will follow in the forthcoming weeks.

LIPZ is: 
Alex K Klintberg: Vocals, Guitar
Koffe K Klintberg: Drums
Conny Svärd: Guitar

Decent tune, but I thought "Ghost Town" and the tracks on their EP were better

Nice, I found it similar to Ghost Town too.  Hearing a song that you really like and that has a melody/hook that stays with you is what it is all about.

    • Isn't this just basically Liberty N Justice without the drummer and bassist? In fact, seven of the twelve songs already feature on the last Liberty N Justice album from 2014.
    • that's disappointing as a review I read said that it was grittier. Hey ho 
    • yeah whatever. I really think you are over exaggerating here as it's just not that bad.  But i do listen mostly on Spotify through pretty bass heavy cans so maybe that's it. Good production / bad production all sounds pretty much the same on that lol. Gone are my high end audio days 
    • Let's end this now.
      There is no possible positive outcome for further discussion.
      FWIW,they're both painful for me compared to AFL.
    • haha, We had our honeymoon in Thailand 12 years ago.
      Going back because it was opportunistic and also because all the traveling we do (around 4 o 5 overseas trips annually) are either work related or pretty fast paced taking in the sights etc.

      Since we've been to Phuket before we're hoping it's forced relaxation to a degree. Also,we're staying in the same hotel we honeymooned in, which is kinda cool. Let me know how you found the Philippines.
      Some friends and I celebrate major birthdays with an OS trip which is next year.
      One of them is trying for vegas. I complained that he'd want a week there. He came back with "nah, a long weekend is enough"
      He missed the point. I wouldn't fly to LA for a week, let along a long weekend, so I'm looking for alternates.
    • This one is fantastic. Will check them out.
    • Haha, I was going to put a thread up for that album tomorrow, when I have time to sit down and put some ratings on it. But I agree, sounded great. Probably the best modern rock album I've heard this year. Loved my first few listens of it - some really, really catchy/melodic choruses. There's a lot of bands who do this ADTR type of sound, and some are average but occasionally some do stand out from the pack. I was pleasantly surprised when I heard the Sink The Ship album. If I remember right, the first track is all balls to the wall and I was worried it was just going to be another pass. But a a few more clean vocals and big hooks later, and I was totally sold on it. Good stuff. I think this 'Everything' song was up at the top of my faves. 
    • Glad to see another positive comment for this one.  The album hasn't gotten much attention here, but I think it is worth checking out as well.
    • I like these guys  will give the new songs a listen for sure I'd suggest checking out a new album from  a band called Sink the Ship actually , sound a bit like these guys although heavier  
    • Nice. I'll check their previous albums out.
