Lamp Shade Betty


Recommended Posts

Whoa! Simply killer and from Minnesota no less. If this doesn't tickle you nothing will.








Live acoustic version, epically brilliant!


From there sight:

"Lamp Shade Betty is a young and high-energy rock band hailing from the St. Paul area. Members of this new group include brothers Benny and Noah Schriener respectively on lead vocals and drums, the shred-prodigy Casey Weishaar ripping on lead guitar, and last but not least Trey Gust holding down the low end on bass. These four guys conspire to make up some of the best rock music on the market to date, which some would describe as a modernized version of 80's metal. Whatever you call it, this is a band you have to see to believe the true talent involved. Currently with 11 original songs that will soon be released on their debut, self-titled album, Lamp Shade Betty knows how to bring the party, and bring it big."

From the bio page:

I'lll buy in a heartbeat. Indie efforts like this need to be supported.


Looks from their catalog page and the fact that they are currently playing live events, it appears that they are historically a cover band that is also branching into their own material.

The drummer looks like one of those FaceTube drum cover dudes. He's too focused on playing all the notes right, so he's really stiff.


Good stuff, so far. And I've only heard the first track.

Strange band name. ..


...err I think you mean really shit band name ;)



Yep, bad enough to keep me out of this thread for a week.


Anyway, I'm either going to be the voice of reason, or just a negative prick; but I'm not quite sure what y'all are falling over yourselves for. ;) It sounds okay and I'd like to try it out, but I'm not really that fussed over what I hear. It's nice - pretty good, in fact, but not great... imo.

Unfortunately I read that LSB is no more. Shame as this debut is amazing and the boys have such potential. I hope they resurface somewhere...


Posted August 22nd on their FB:


When we started this band nearly 4 years ago, we had one goal in mind. That was to create our own unique brand of rock music that we felt was missing in modern music. This goal materialized in the form of our debut album. It took three tries to make, but after two years of carefully crafting the sound in our heads, we finally had a collection of songs that we could be proud of.

As we’ve grown as a band over the years, we’ve also grown creatively in different directions as individuals. During our recent shows and writing sessions, it’s become apparent that sacrifices have to be made creatively to retain the dynamic that made Lamp Shade Betty work in the beginning. In order to be true to ourselves as musicians, we have decided to call it quits.The decision is amicable. We all remain great friends, but we will no longer be sharing a stage together.

Our music has allowed us to travel across the country, play major music festivals, hear our songs on the radio, come face to face with our musical idols, and meet so many truly incredible people along the way. We’d like to thank you all for the overwhelming love and support you’ve shown over the past 4 years! It’s time to start a new chapter in our lives, but we have so many amazing memories to look back on!

We will be playing our album in its entirety one last time this Friday, August 26th @ The Fine Line in Minneapolis in support of our friends, The Missing Letters, CD release.

Farewell & keep on rocking!

~Lamp Shade Betty

    • This is a good one. The Deluxe Edition from MelodicRock Classics looks interesting. See below:  
    • New songs. From Frontiers: Frontiers Music Srl is thrilled to announce the upcoming release of Perfect Plan's third studio album, "Brace For Impact". Over the course of their first two albums, "All Rise" and "Time For A Miracle", the Swedes have quickly established themselves as a new gold standard in not only the Scandinavian melodic rock genre, but the melodic rock genre as a whole. "Brace For Impact" does nothing to slow that momentum and fans should do exactly as the album's title says in preparation for their latest opus.  Produced by the band, songwriting started in August 2021 for "Brace For Impact" and was wrapped up by the end of the year. The band then spent January of this year working on arrangements and pre-production work before starting the process of recording in the first week of February. Asked about the musical direction of the album, vocalist Kent Hilli says, "Well, hard question...we didn’t think too much about that when we started writing as we want everything to come naturally to us. All we focused on and wanted to do was to write really great melodic rock songs with great riffs and melodies. But I think we have more ”rockers” on this album than before. I would say that it's melodic rock in general, but maybe slightly harder than our previous albums. But much like our second album, ”Time For A Miracle” we have a great mixture between hard rock, melodic rock, and AOR in there...and some songs even have some elements of progressive rock and some bluesier elements mixed in also. And we have just one ballad on this album. Our goal when writing an album is that it should feel like playing songs on a jukebox and I think we have succeeded with that on this album. Everything sounds like PERFECT PLAN 3.0, really! I think we have definitely pushed everything up a notch from songwriting and lyrics to arrangements and overall performance and sound. With the addition of the great Tobias Lindell who does the mixing…everything sounds really big and majestic I think!" Sometimes the stars align and create a perfect balance of talent within a group. A band like Perfect Plan is the “perfect" (pun intended) example of that: a superb singer, a well-oiled band of experienced players, and a great songwriting talent with a knack for unforgettable melodies and driving rhythms. Add to that the right single released at the right time and Perfect Plan’s emergence as immediate rising stars on the melodic rock scene is no surprise. The song that “built” their reputation is of course the awesome “In and Out of Love,” the first single/video that kicked off the promotion of the band’s 2018 debut album “All Rise,” released on Frontiers in April of that year. The band followed their debut album with the sophomore release "Time For A Miracle" in 2020. Hyperbole aside, it was a major step forward across the board. Opting for a slightly heavier and more “in your face” sound, Perfect Plan matured and created an outstanding balance of melodies and energy, with the obvious references to the sound of the classics (think Foreigner, Survivor, The Storm, Giant, etc.) and Scandinavian AOR with a recognizable and personal feel. So, after a stunning debut and sticking the landing with their second album, what does Perfect Plan have up their sleeve for an encore? Well, all we can say is..."Brace For Impact”! Tracklisting: 1. Surrender 2. If Love Walks In 3. Can’t Let You Win 4. Gotta Slow Me Down 5. Stop The Bleed 6. My Angel 7. Devil’s Got The Blues 8. Bring Me A Doctor 9. Still Undefeated 10. Emelie 11. Walk Through Fire Line-Up: Kent Hilli - Lead vocals Rolf Nordström - Guitar Leif Ehlin - Keyboards Fredrik Forsberg - Drums Mats Byström - Bass   https://perfectplan.se facebook        
    • Baton Rogue Morgue - Massacre of St. Valentine's Day. Great track despite the clunky chorus. Solid album.    
    • I've just posted this "Grim Reaper" retrospective in another thread, but it should be here as well.    
    • "Grim Reaper" features this time. I don't know if he had this one in the works, but it's a nice tribute.    
    • I would have put Animalize as the middle feature piece as the album cover looks the most "blanketty"
    • My favorite guitarist of all time Rock In Peace  Eddie 🎸 
    • The full album's on YouTube. 
    • I just listened to the album for the first time. Wow. Can't believe it took me so long to get to it. I think what happened was Andrew signed these guys and Degreed right around the same time, and I was just vibing with the Degreed sound so much more. Might have to track down the reissue. I wonder if he still has some copies.
