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

It actually sounds like a better version of Ghost town to me

and it's completely stuck in my head at the moment

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.

As with everything from the Lipz camp I am smitten with the Get It On track. 

These kids are as cool as can be.

 

I can't wait to get a copy, maybe they will send me one...

 

One thing that saddens me is the lack of bass player in the vid. Sure they may be in between but have the singer grab a bass vs the guitar and the continuity is restored, all is right with the world...

I listened to this during my workday today and thought it sounded pretty good, my initial favorites are Star, Get It On, and Falling Away.  I'll give it another spin over the weekend.

Sorry guys but I must be hearing something completely different to you. Just finished listening to this and it has to be one of the worst albums I have heard this year.

    • And a small but important  update. Had an MRI scan two weeks back and just before I went in for a weeks chemo. The day I was discharged the doctor who discharged me gave me the results of the MRI scan and confirmed my feelings that the brain cancer had reduced in size, so everything it seems is going to plan.
    • I'd like to think so too, but I don't think it is. But I am always weary of what's being reported in Australian media. Are we just seeing everything from the hysterical, moronic and blown out of proportion version that the Aussie media feeds us? Or are there actually things happening outside of this country that are as hysterically panic driven as they are here? From the few other things I've heard, globally, it does seem that this variant has earned it's own little slice of worldwide panic, so I guess we'll see. This Panic First, Ask Questions Later mentality that the world has adopted is honestly an (even further) embarrassment to humanity. If I didn't have children I would confess that the time has certainly well and truly come for the human race to be nuked and made extinct. I ponder how much I hated humans in 2019. It took 40 years to build up that level of hatred. I am not even kidding to say that those 40 years of built up hatred has probably doubled, if not tripled or even quadrupled in the space of the two years since. What I think of what has become of the human race in the space of two years has no words left to describe it. 
    • It is definitely flashdance. I can't unhear it now.
    • Everyone I have spoken to from cities are shitting themselves over this Omricon variant. I say to them "don't you want things to go back to normal?". But they really don't. They are loving living in a police state. I have spoken to a number of ex-prisoners as well who have similar thoughts about jail. I think a lot of people are wired to like having freedom and choice taken away from them. They enjoy having fewer options. It is bizarre to me.
    • the first song wasn't the clip I heard - this sound more promising to me https://www.facebook.com/100764135031478/posts/426269785814243/  
    • mmmm. Erik great, verses great, solo typical but still good, chorus suspect.  Am I the only one who hears Flashdance in the chorus 🤔 🤣🤣🤣
    • I am not here to convince any of you the Way. I believe everyone has the means and now makes their choice as per free will. Yet , isn't it amusing (well it is to me) how fundamentalist atheists are in their certainty. And I guess that is why you are so intolerant to other beliefs. There is no room for doubt in your minds. You feel you know all the answers and that there are no mysteries outside of your understanding. Though you are just a speck upon a speck upon a speck staring at a piece of dirt on the toenail of an elephant and then believing that is the entire knowledge of the elephant. Good luck with that.
